We hope that by now you've already got your beauty advent calendar sorted (if not, these are the ones that are still on sale) and are starting to make a dent in your Christmas shopping, although we have some ideas when it comes to that too. But next on the Christmas hit list is the tree decorations. And by tree decorations, naturally, we mean beauty baubles. Yep, year after year, beauty brands bring out these dinky ornaments containing a miniature beauty products to treat someone on Christmas day (or to open yourself if you can't bear the temptation).
And while we'll be hanging up the regular roll call of questionable plastic artifacts from Christmasses gone by, as well as multiple candy canes and chocolate decorations, we're most looking forward to the moment we get to hang some pretty-looking beauty baubles, whether that's Jo Malone's rather chic scented ceramic discs or Bumble and Bumble's useful hair kit. We're calling it: We're going to have the most extra tree ever.
If you want in on the beauty decoration game, click through to find the beauty baubles that will be adorning in the Byrdie HQ Christmas tree this year.
Inside this bauble lies a mini version of the brand's Skin Rescue Balm—one of those brilliant all-rounders you can use on irritated skin, rough elbows, dry cuticles and the lot.
Caudalie's Beauty Elixir is pretty iconic in beauty circles. Just try a spritz on a hungover face and you'll soon understand. This decoration serves up a mini version perfect for slotting into a pocket or keeping on your desk.
This bauble contains Pret-a-Powder, the finest root-lifting powder out there, as well as a set of Pop Band's gentle hairbands for when things get too much and it's time to bring out the ponytail.
Molton Brown's offering is a little different: Inside the two silver baubles, you'll find a ceramic ball. Spray this with the accompanying linen mist before hanging on the trees and it will really ramp up that incredible pine needle smell (or fake it if you've opted for a faux tree this year).
If you're someone who spend the entire length of party season tonging, straightening and blowdrying your hair, you'll be thankful for this bauble come Christmas day. Inside, there's a miniature tube of the brand's clever split-end cream that binds the frayed strands you thought were beyond help.
This cute bauble contains Burt's Bees' signature lip balm and a little pot of buttery hand cream.
Essie's bauble comes stuffed with two polish shades: a soft icy blue and a chunky-flecked silver glitter.
Another chic scented bauble, this ceramic disc will fill your living room with the iconic Pomegranate Noir scent.
Inside this clear bauble lies a bottle of Alchemy Oil's nourishing hair oil blend that promotes growth and lends a hell of a lot of shine to hair.
