First things first: we’re not for a second suggesting that you give up your chocolate eggs this Easter.
What we are suggesting, however, is that much as beauty advent calendars sit happily beside our chocolate chart in December, beauty Easter eggs are a great way to indulge in a little extra gifting for this special occasion. And we certainly wouldn’t be mad if the Easter bunny left us one or two of these…
This year marks the second that Glossybox has offered a beauty Easter egg, and considering that last year’s version sold out in just 30 minutes, you’ll want to be first in line. Stuffed with products from brands including St Tropez, bareMinerals, GLAMGLOW and Illamasqua, its £75 worth of goods can be snapped up for a fraction of the cost.
L’Oreal has released two beauty Easter eggs for 2020, one ‘nice’ and one ‘naughty’. The former contains a full size Pure Clay Detox Mask, while the latter houses a Smooth Sugars Nourish Scrub, and both include a selection of samples that’ll keep your skin sweet throughout April and beyond.
L’Occitane’s pastel-hued eggs are some of the loveliest designs on the shelves. Beneath the shell of the cherry blossom and almond eggs there’s a shower gel, body lotion and hand cream, but for something really special, we’d suggest the Easter Assortment box, which contains four eggs that would make perfect place settings at your Sunday lunch table.

Revolution’s portable palettes are a brilliant budget find. The limited-edition eggs hold five eyeshadows and two highlighters, all of which are highly Instagrammable; not bad for a fiver, we say.
Like your Easter treats with a little extra sparkle? Lush’s glitzy golden egg is for you. The store’s entire Easter range this year is vegan-friendly, and this gift set showcases the best of the bunch, with three bath bombs, a bubbleroon and a Sunnyside Up shower jelly. You can also buy the egg-cellent treats individually, with prices starting from £4.95.
Fragrance fans, head to Superdrug for a lucky dip pick of six different (but equally delicious-smelling) beauty Easter eggs from Ghost. Depending on which egg you select, you’ll get 5-10ml of one of the brand’s most popular scents, such as Dream, Sweetheart and Deep Night.
