The Art Of Guilt-Free Self-Gifting

The Art Of Guilt-Free Self-Gifting

Treating ourselves can often feel like an extravagant indulgence, but the past 18 months has been hard for everyone and sometimes we all need a little pick-me-up. With the evenings getting longer and chillier, there’s even more reason to give yourself some TLC. Here are the three ways to treat yourself without being left wracked with guilt…

You’re Running Low…

If your bathroom cabinet needs to be restocked and you’re running low on daily staples, why not choose one to upgrade. You could swap your usual shower gel for Diptyque Revitalizing Shower Gel, $45.00 to kick start your day on a good note or if you need a helping hand to decompress in the evenings, try Aromatherapy Associates De-Stress Shower Oil, $34.00. Likewise, applying a new mascara, such as Hourglass Caution Extreme Lash Mascara, $29.00 every morning could help bolster your mood before your first video call. Replacing your fragrance is another super speedy way of switching up your mindset – we’re currently obsessed with Maison Margiela Replica’s range. You don’t need to overhaul your entire routine. Investing in just one product with an incredible scent or luxurious texture can be just the pick-me-up you need to elevate your mood.

You Want To Try Something New…

There can be a practical element to treating yourself. If you’ve had your eye on a particular product or brand but have yet to try it, gift yourself a travel-size version. Not only is this a more affordable option, it’s also kinder to the environment as it minimises potential waste. Bestselling brands such as Paula’s Choice and Living Proof both offer mini versions of their top sellers.

Just Because…

Sometimes you should just treat yourself to that you’ve been looking at for months. Scenting the lounge-come-office with Neom Happiness Diffuser, $49.50 might help make lockdown 3.0 a little easier to bear. For some, a quick spritz of Caudalie Beauty Elixir, $15.50 will be just the ticket – it comes in travel-size too! If you want the full package, we highly recommend the Space NK Beauty Heroes Volume III Box. With some of our bestselling skincare, makeup and haircare buys, this is the ultimate pick-me-up.
