This Christmas Foschini’s making a name for itself as a beauty gift destination du jour with a host of indulgent gift sets, the most spoilicious of them all being their fragrance gift boxes. Each box contains a selection of popular fragrance samples and a voucher to snap up a full-size bottle of the scent you like best.

Personally, I’ve got my eye on the Deluxe gift box for her (but of course!) as it includes a whopping 13 fragrances as well as a free mini Estee Lauder mascara. The box is partially hidden so I thought I’d be a doll and list what’s in it for you: Giorgio Armani Si (love!), Thierry Mugler Alien (love even more!), Estée Lauder Modern Muse, Dolce & Gabbana The One, Gucci Guilty, Versace Eros, YSL Black Opium, JPG Classique, Lancome La Vie est Belle (yes, please!), Roberto Cavalli, Burberry My Burberry, Bulgari Aqua Divinia and Burberry Brit Rhythm.
Another gem I’d totally toss into my fantasy trolley? The Big Kahuna that is Elizabeth Arden’s Blockbuster kit to give to my mom. (‘Cos every mom loves a Blockbuster set, right?)
The mooi red make-up bag contains 2 eye shadow and blush palettes, a powder, mascara, 4 lipsticks, 2 lipglosses, 2 lip liners, 2 eye liners and eye make up remover for only R1 995!
For the record, that Beautiful Colour Lash Enhancing mascara, is one of my top five favourites. Also, Arden’s ultra creamy eye pencils, make-up remover and make-up brushes are some of the nicest money can buy.
Moving on, I’d also snap up this Angel gift set for my Mugler-lovin’ little sis.
Thierry Mugler Angel gift set containing 50ml EDP, 100ml body lotion and 100ml shower gel for R1 050.
If you’re an Angel fan, you’ll know that the body lotion is magnificently potent. It’s the perfect veil on days when you’re craving the scent but don’t want to go the full Monty.
I’d then nab this Lancome La Vie est Belle gift set for my bestie Karisa. She’s been wearing this heady floral-gourmand fragrance for a while now and we both agree it’s like catnip for boys.
Lancome La Vie Est Belle gift set containing a 50ml EDP, 50ml body lotion, mini mascara and pouch for R1 200.
Last, but not least, because I’m a selfish cow, I’d grab another item for myself, the Dolce & Gabbanna Light Blue gift set. I’ve been enjoying a seriously retro love affair with this now classic fragrance after being given the latest limited edition incarnation, Sunset in Salinas.
Light Blue gift set containing a 100ml EDT, 100ml body cream and 7,4ml roller ball EDT for R1 330.
In short, Foschini has a very nice selection of beauty gifts to help you treat your friends, fam and even yourself this Christmas so be sure to browse them online over here.
Win! Win! Win!
‘Tis the season for giving so it totally makes sense to give something away which is why I have TWO of the men’s fragrance boxes to give away – the Designer one and the Luxury one – to help you spoil the man you love the most this Christmas.
You know he’s going to love this!
To enter, simply leave me a comment below telling me which is your favourite male fragrance in either of the boxes. The other way to win is to hit me up on twitter with the following: ‘Hey @lipglossgirl! I’d love to win a male fragrance gift box from Foschini’s fab Christmas collection’ and be sure to include the link to this post.
This competition closes at 5pm on Friday 27 November 2015.
Good luck girls!
Update: This competition is now closed. A big congrats to Cindy Alfino and @samiolawrites on each winning a Foschini fragrance gift box for the their favourite (lucky) man.
