The Boots Christmas Showcase 2018

The Boots Christmas catalogue has been my favourite to browse since I was a teenager. I used to love picking out the beauty gifts that caught my eye and writing my wishlist in the back. It's also one of my go to shops for Christmas shopping. I tend to save up my advantage card points all year and use them to buy gifts (obviously using the 3 for 2 gifting options and keeping the 3rd gift for myself). When I was asked if I would like to attend the Boots Christmas Showcase to view their beauty ranges, I knew I couldn't say no.



Upon arrival I was greeted with macarons (one of my favourite sweet treats) and a glass of prosecco (one of my favourite drinks) and instantly I knew I was going to enjoy myself. 



The first thing I noticed was a wall display of advent calendars. The advent calendar has certainly evolved since the little chocolate ones I had as a child. I adore the fact that as an adult you can still open a treat every day on the lead up to Christmas. The calendars I've added to my wishlist are the Disney Princess Castle and the Soap & Glory It's in the Calendar gift set which are both in the fantastic 3 for 2 offer.





The event showcased the best products from many beauty brands old and new such as No.7, Naomi Smart, Joules, Ted Baker, Champney's, Sleek, Kendall and Kylie and many more. 





There were 3 brands which stood out the most for me and that was Soap & Glory, Millie Mackintosh and LMX by Little Mix.

I'm a big fan of Soap and Glory with 'The Daily Smooth' being my go to body moisturiser and their 'Drama Clean' being my favourite make-up remover. One thing I hadn't tried was their make-up. At the event I tested their 'Naked Talent Satin Lipstick' and the 'Candy Queen Sexy Mother Pucker Lipgloss'. I was hooked. The lipstick is a beautiful nude shade and the lipgloss definitely works. As soon as I left the event, I headed to the nearest Boots and bought both items. 

I was shown their Christmas gifting range which was incredible. Every year they out-do themselves with their gifts and packaging. They are all such amazing value for money too. These are all on my wishlist:




She's Show Ready £60

Wash Come True £16

Flatterbox £20

She's a Glamour Purse £20


The LMX by Little Mix collection was amazing such good value for money. The packaging really stood out with lots of metallics and sparkles. 


The band had a lot of input into the products which are designed to empower and celebrate self expression. My top picks are below:

Shout out to my Pout £18


Eyeconix Eye Palette £16


Get the Luxe Mega Beauty Edit £40


The Millie Mackintosh collection was beautiful. The packaging was exquisite and reminded me of Charlotte Tilbury. All of the make up colours were perfect for me. My wishlist is below:

Couture Classics £10


Luxe Lip Kit £12.50


Bombshell Bronze £16

At the event I also got to meet the lovely Naomi Smart who has recently launched her new body and lifestyle products which are all inspired by her favourite foods. 



Last up I headed into the No.7 giant Christmas snowglobe which was fab. 


I have so many things from the Boots catalogue on my own Christmas list and for gifts to buy others. I'll be looking out for their Christmas shopping evening which should be coming soon so I can earn some extra advantage card points.
