We’re thrilled to announce the launch of this year’s OK! Christmas Beauty Box, a limited-edition treasure trove of pampering products that makes the perfect gift.
This one-off box costs £60 and contains 11 fabulously festive goodies, hand-picked by our beauty editors and packaged up in a gorgeous gift box, guaranteed to delight this Christmas and on into the new year.
The 2023 OK! Christmas Beauty Box is packed with some of our favourite skincare, hair care, make-up and wellbeing products to suit everybody, from top brands such as bareMinerals, REN Clean Skincare and Percy & Reed. One product inside is even worth £95 alone – more than the price of the entire box!
Because, of course, this wouldn’t be an OK! Beauty Box without an incredible saving to be had, and the contents of this Christmas box are worth a whopping £360 – yet costs you just £60 to buy.
You’ll need to be quick if you want to get your hands on this though, as there is only a limited number available, and once it’s gone, it’s gone.
Here’s a look at what you get inside…
bareMinerals Maximist Mascara
4.5ml travel size, RRP £14
A mascara is a make-up bag essential – not just for Christmas but all year round – so we’ve included one of our favourites inside this Christmas box – and even better, it’ll fit in even the tiniest party clutch bag.
The volumising formula contains cellulose fibres from upcycled orange peel, while the uniquely-shaped brush has special ‘reservoirs’ for applying the optimum amount of product.
How to use: Position the brush with one of the reservoirs touching the base of your eyelashes, then push upwards to disperse the mascara evenly. Next, use the fluffier part of the brush to separate and add additional layers.
- Water-resistant and smudge-proof.
- Infused with fibres for added volume.
- Contains a microalgae complex to care for the lashes.
Laritzy Luxe Powder Highlighter in Warm Rose
Full size, RRP £22
The easiest way to elevate your make-up from daytime to dance floor is with a sweep of highlighter across the cheekbones.
We love this one for its super-blendable texture that leaves skin glowing not glittery, with a soft pinky-champagne shade that flatters all skin tones.
How to use: Using a small fluffy brush, dust lightly on the high points of the face such as the tops of the cheekbones and the brow bones. It can also be used on the eyelids as a shimmery shadow.
- Blends seamlessly into the skin.
- Suits all skin tones.
XX Revolution Xxpress Shadow Palette Limited Edition Xxtreme
One palette featuring four shades, RRP £10
Containing two mattes and two shimmers in on-trend warm bronze and gold shades, this four-piece eyeshadow palette will really get things hotting up this Christmas.
The standout shade for us is this gleaming gold foil effect powder, which is an easy way to add a little glitz to your festive make-up.
How to use: There are no rules with this palette, but we think the burnt orange colour is great for contouring the eye, the deep brown can be used to define the lash line, and the two shimmery shades will really make the eyes pop when dabbed onto the lids. For precise results, apply using the Brushworks make-up brush from the OK! Christmas Beauty Box.
- Super pigmented yet easy to blend powders.
- Suits all skin tones.
brushworks Double Ended Eye Brush
Full size, RRP £3.99
The perfect tool for using with your new eyeshadow palette. Double-ended with a fluffy shading brush at one end and an angled liner brush at the other, this may well be the only eyeshadow brush you’ll ever need!
How to use: Use the fluffy side to sweep eyeshadow across the lid and blend out, and use the angled end to create a precise line near the lashes.
- Two make-up brushes in one.
- Works with liquid and powder products.
- Slim and fits easily into make-up bags.
ISOCLEAN Professional Makeup Brush Cleaner
110ml full size, RRP £8
It’s important to regularly clean your make-up brushes to avoid spreading germs on your face, and so we just had to include this cleanser from TikTok-viral brand ISOCLEAN in the box.
It quickly and easily removes make-up from your favourite tools, leaving them completely clean and hygienic.
How to use: Spray it onto the bristles then swirl the brush on a cloth or paper towel for a few seconds – you’ll see any make-up residue is quickly removed. Dry the brush with another clean towel – no rinsing required.
- Works in just 60 seconds.
- Conditions and prolongs the life of brushes.
- Can help to reduce the spread of acne-causing bacteria on dirty make-up brushes.
Epidermal Research Centre Marine Collagen 8 Hour Advanced Repair Mask
50ml full size, RRP £95
This is a real treat for skincare fans, and this product alone is worth more than the price of the whole box.
A deeply nourishing night mask, this contains hydrolysed collagen, antioxidant grape extract and kaolin clay to completely revitalise skin while you sleep. It’s like an overnight facial in a tub!
How to use: Swap your usual night cream for this supercharged treatment whenever your skin needs an extra boost. Apply as the final step in your nighttime skincare routine.

Avant Skincare Pink Orchid Subtle Restoring Overnight Serum
30ml full size, RRP £89
Another super nighttime product, with another super saving to be had. Designed to support the skin’s renewal process and boost its moisture levels while you sleep, this luxe serum will banish patches of dry skin by the morning, while pink orchid extract helps to increase the skin’s elasticity.
How to use: In the evening after cleansing (and toning and exfoliating, if your routine includes that), massage a pea-sized amount into the skin.
- Deeply moisturises and hydrates patches of dry skin.
- Works to tackle fine lines and wrinkles.
- Leaves skin looking more radiant.

If you have fine, flat or grease-prone hair, you probably think hair oils aren’t for you, right? Well think again, as this is the lightest one we’ve ever found.
It disappears immediately into the hair leaving behind no oily residue, just smoother, silkier and – miraculously – more volumised locks. Magic!
