Christmas @ SpaceNK

They say it's the most wonderful time of the year and, with SpaceNK finally at home on Dublin's Grafton Street, this Christmas is shaping up to be particularly wonderful! We went along to the store after hours last night to check out what SpaceNK have coming down the line for us this festive season from brands like Diptique, Laura Mercier and By Terry and, while we would easily buy one of everything, we whittled it down to our top picks and took note of the euro pricing for you too so you can budget whether you plan on shopping in-store or online.

First up; the minis or The Section of Doom as it we commonly refer to it. Ordinarily, it's hard enough to walk away from all your favourite products in cute mini sizes but, stick them in pretty Christmas packaging and suddenly you are buying "just a little something extra" for everyone you know! There are loads on offer this year but, our favourites were the Eve Lom Kiss Mix Star Set (€20.00) which contains a tub of the brand's famous Kiss Mix Lip Balm and the Aromatherapy Associates The Star (€11.50) which includes a 7.5ml Inner Strength Bath & Shower Oil. Also super cute are cult favourites Caudalie Mini Beauty Elixir (€13.00) and Caudalie Mini Divine Oil (€9.00). I love the idea of buying one of these for each of my sisters and my mam and hanging them on the tree or popping them at place settings instead of a Christmas cracker.

SpaceNK do candles really well and two sets in particular made us squeal; the Diptyque Mini Candle Set of 3 (€68.00) full of their three Christmas scents - Winter, Spice and Resin, and the Malin+Goetz Votive Set (€40.00) that contains bestsellers Tobacco, Vetvier and Dark Rum which is Dee's personal favourite! Each of the Diptyque candles is also available to buy separately as both a mini and a large but, if I had to pick just one of all the candles and scents that are on offer, I would opt for the Diptyque Spice Scented Mini Candle (€30.00) as it literally smells like Christmas in a jar and the 30-hour burn time will see you through the season.

For a good old pamper, we picked out the This Works Perchance to Dream Set (€85.00) containing 75ml Dream Cream, 220g Heavenly Candle, 200ml Deep Sleep Bath Soak and 75ml of the and the super popular Deep Sleep Pillow Spray which we both always keep beside our beds! The gift of good sleep is probably the best gift of all...unless you count the gift of good skin and that's where our second pamper favourite comes in; the Laura Mercier La Petite Pâtisserie Soufflè Body Crème Collection (€58.00) which contains 6 x 60ml tubs the brands ultra nourishing body moisturisers in the scents Ambre Vanille, Almond Coconut Milk, Crème Brûlée, Fresh Fig, Crème de Pistache, Tarte au Citron. 

Our final pick (although it's hard to stop here!) has to go to the Best of SpaceNK Christmas Crackers (€52.00) which are every girls dream. Again, perfect for the Christmas Day table (just find something for the boys too!) or for a pre-Christmas girly get-together, the crackers contain one each of a Rococo VIP Crème Nail Polish 14 ml, Oribe Supershine Moisturising Cream 50 ml, Life NK Ultimate Unwind Body Wash 100 ml, Laura Mercier Foundation Primer 30 ml, Caudalíe Beauty Elixir 30 ml, Lipstick Queen Big Bang Illusion Gloss in Creation 11 ml. Or, you know, you could just keep them for yourself....
