Christmas with World Duty Free

If you always leave buying gifts till the last minute, or simply didn't have the time to do your Christmas shopping yet, you can always take advantage of fab airport offers if you are travelling before or during the Christmas period. World Duty Free are the perfect shopping destination for beauty addicts, with shelves full of travel exclusives and lovely gift sets. I am pretty sure that every person gets excited about tax free prices once we pass the airport security :)

I was kindly sent a lovely selection of travel exclusives and treats available to buy from World Duty Free stores, including: Clarins Take Off Essentials, L'Occitaine Traveller's Hand Cream Collection, OPI Passport To Color Collection, a bottle of Bottega White Sparkling Wine and Twinings Festive Infusions Tea Tin.

Clarins Take Off Essentials* (£35.50) would be a perfect gift for skincare lovers or a great emergency set, if you forgot to pack your wash bag! It includes six products: Beauty Flash Balm 15ml, Eye Contour gel 3ml, Hand & Nail Treatment Cream 50ml, HydraQuench Cream 30ml, One-Step Facial Cleanser 100ml and Moisture Rich Body Lotion 30ml. As a big Clarins fan, I am really excited to give all the products a go.

 Featuring four different hand creams, the L'Occitaine Traveller's Hand Cream Collection would make a lovely Christmas gift or... you can use the 30ml minis as last minute stocking fillers :) The set includes:

-Shea Butter Hand Cream (my personal favourite)
-Velvet Hand Cream Rose 4 Reines
-Cooling Hand Cream Gel 
-Cherry Bloosom Hand Cream 

If you know any nail polish addict, you can't go wrong with treating them to the OPI Passport To Color Collection. It contains 6 mini bottles of OPI nail polish, including: Passion, Tickle My France'y, Charged Up Cherry, Cajun Shrimp, Malaga Wine and Lincoln Park After Dark.

My beautifully wrapped parcel also included a delicious Christmas Cake flavoured tea by Twinings, which retails at £6.50 and is also available in two more festive flavours. I have tried it already and it tastes incredible! YUM!

The last little treat I received was a bottle of Bottega White Wine in stunning gold packaging. From all types of wine, this one is the only option I can actually drink without feeling sick :) haha. 

Make sure to pop into a World Duty Free store, if you are travelling in the UK and want to get your hands on some exclusive deals or last minute Christmas presents. You can find a full list of the locations here.
