Want a little Christmas magic? Take a tour of London’s best shopping destinations this festive season and uncover these must-have luxury beauty treats
London takes on a magical quality at this time of year. Its streets twinkle with spectacular lights, the sound of Christmas carols fills the air and glasses of mulled wine and plates of mince pies make a welcome appearance. The capital’s shops, meanwhile, thrill with their decorative window displays, enticing viewers with scenes of Christmas Day rituals (at Harrods) or Rock and Roll, guitar-playing Santas (at Selfridges). Once through the doors, visitors find that the magic doesn’t stop and, for beauty fans in particular, there is much to get excited about: limited-edition products, personalised gift wrap and pampering beauty treatments are just some of the extra special touches that make this the most wonderful time of the year.
