GABY Soutar rounds up this week’s best beauty products
A fabled collection
This year, Aesop’s Christmas gift tins are inspired by the stars, with astronomical charts in a chic black tin. Inside, you’ll also find a collection of their products – the body kit, Andromeda, contains hand wash, hand balm, body balm and body cleanser, each of which smells heavenly.
Andromeda Maps of Light Celestial Gift Kit, £75, Aesop, www.aesop.com
This range of palm-sized lipsticks, all named after boys, is back, with 25 new metallicised shades (including rich red Joaquin and the bright pink Justin, pictured) to match the re-release of the same number of best sellers from last year. Ingredients include soja seed extract, so they’re buttery and smooth, with loads of punchy pigment.

The same, but different
The regular version of this best-selling cream cleanser is an everyday staple of our beauty routine, but it’s nice to try it with a different scent, like this rather sophisticated and sensual combination. It’s also a bargain, in a bumper 150ml size (usually £15.50 for 100ml) with two gold fringed muslin cloths.
Cleanse and Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser in Pink Peppercorn and Mint Limited Edition, £20.75, Liz Earle, www.uk.lizearle.com
