Best Beauty crackers 2017

Beauty Advent Calendars are huge this year, my post has over 70 listed in it (here) and if you can't decide which one is best for you there are a few alternative options which are just exciting - Beauty Crackers.  Beauty Crackers is one of my most requested posts in the last few weeks and it has taken some doing getting bits of information from people but here are the ones that I feel fit within the 'Best Beauty Cracker' category.

Beauty Crackers 2017
Marc Jacobs is offering up two Beauty Crackers for 2017. The first one is called 'The Sex Kitten' Cracker Makeup Gift Set - This Cracker contains two travel-size products which are Le Marc Lip Crème, Mini and Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara, Mini. Retails for just £13 here. The second cracker is called The Night Owl and features a three piece eye collection made up of Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara, Petite Highliner Gel Eye Crayon and the Petite Magic Marc'er Precision Pen Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner and it retails for £24 here

Jo Malone - Now Christmas isn't Christmas without an amazing array of gifts from Jo Malone and having been the lucky recipient of many a Jo Malone cracker, this is one that I love the look of.  Inside you will find three Jo Malone Minis by way of Blackberry & Bay cologne, a body wash in the fresh Basil & Neroli scent and a English Pear & Freesia body cream. Priced at £34 it will soon be available here.

Sarah Chapman - This Skincare cracker from Sarah Chapman is another one which has caught my eye. Inside there are two products - a 5ml Overnight facial and a 5ml morning facial product, both of which I've read rave reviews of and neither have yet crossed my path. priced at £29 here.

Omorovicza - I have said this a few times now, but Omorovicza is an incredible brand and this cracker made me whoop with glee. Inside you will find the purifying Moor Cream Cleanser and the Refining Facial Polisher which are both 30ml. A great introduction to the brand if you have never come across and tried anything before and at just £25 it is an absolute bargain and can be found here.

Yardley - Featuring a 50ml tube of their English Rose hand cream, at £4 here, this is an absolute bargain and it looks just so pretty.

La Roche-Posay - An increible skincare brand with a cracker to boot.

This Works - The Big Bang from This Works is really lovely in that it contains a Deep Sleep™ Pillow Spray, which if you have not tried you should as it is amazing and a luxurious eye mask housed in cracker-shaped packaging. Priced at £12 here.

Invisibobble - I adore these little hair bands and have totally switched from using any other type of hair band in my hair.  For Christmas, if you are as big a fan as me, this cracker contains a trip pack of bobbles, or 9 of them in total for just £12 here.

Cowshed - This year there are three offerings and there is a choice of Bullocks which contains a Body Wash and Soothing Moisturiser or the Hand and lip Cracker within which you will find a Lip Balm and Hand Cream. Alternatively and quite cleverly, if you are a fan of Cowshed or have been waiting for a reason to try some of their products there is this trio of crackers which can be used as gifts or kept for yourself and it is priced at £30 here and is an absolute bargain.

There will as we get closer to Christmas be a lot more crackers being announced and as with my Advent Calendar post, this one will too be updated and I have some further crackers to share.
