Beauty Crackers

2 min read

I love a Christmas cracker, but let’s be honest, the contents can disappoint. A tired old paper hat, a rubbish joke, and another useless keyring/plasticring/puzzle are not things we need.

But the contents of these fabulous beauty crackers – now we’re talking! There are loads out there, and whilst they’re not all strictly crackers (pulling them open is not advisable) they would look fantastic on the Christmas table.

Boots No7 Gifts for the Girls Cracker Collection (£16 for four) are fabulously festive for a girl’s night out table – and each one contains either a full size No7 Nail Colour, or a No7 Lovely Lips Tinted Lip Balm. Oh, and there is a paper crown and a joke in there too!


Heathcote & Ivory Fabrics & Flowers Vintage & Co Cracker Gift Set (£12, is a lovely gift of five crackers, three filled with bath fizzers, and two with hand creams.


These Dirty Works Crackers About Beauty (£4, Sainsbury’s) are so cute, and such a good price, you can buy a few packets for your festive table. They contain emery boards, spritzer, and lip balm.


L’Oreal Professionel have these four cute cracker sets on offer this Christmas at salons. Choose from Colour, which has Série Expert Vitamino Colour shampoo (100ml) & conditioner (75ml) inside, Strengthen, with Série Expert Absolut Repair shampoo (100ml) & conditioner (75ml), and Nourish with Série Expert Nutrifier shampoo (100ml) & conditioner (75ml) inside.


Or choose, Style which includes Tecni.ART Fix Anti-Frizz (75ml) & Tecni.ART Beach Waves (45ml).


Each cracker is £6.99, and for more info visit, and for your nearest salon, visit

British Beauty manufacturer, Mad Beauty, have two lots of Christmas crackers- and you can still order them in time for Christmas if you order today.

First up, there are these shocking pink lipgloss crackers (£14.99), each of them with a different fruit flavoured lip gloss inside.


Or, my favourite, these four glittery gold crackers (£9.99) each containing a bottle of nail polish.


Happy cracking this Christmas!
