The humble Christmas cracker has been transformed for 2012's festive season. Gone are the days of cheesy jokes, a rubbish paper crown and another mini tape measure to add to your collection. Here is a selection of cracking crackers from the best beauty brands around, which are filled with indulgent goodies and perfect party treats.
Kiehl's Holiday Crackers are suitable for male and female party guests and wrap up beauty wishes by offering six miniature cult classics from the luxury brand. These include their iconic product Crème de Corps and Ultimate Strength Hand Salve (just brilliant for cold weathered hands).
The Lancôme Christmas Crackers Gift Set is for the lady who loves luxury and has desirable little beauty must haves inside each perfectly formed tube. Choose from an eye opening Hypnôse mascara or Mini L'Absolu lipstick to top up your makeup at the party. There's also a great mix of skin saving creams, sera and eye makeup remover so you still look your best the morning after the day before... just try not to pull them all yourself!
Origins Christmas Crackers contain six shrunk-to-fit best selling products from the nature loving brand. The best of their cracker treats for you are the Plantscription Anti-ageing Serum (a brilliant antidote to the skin ruining party season) and the little handbag sized Ginger Rush Hydrating Body Cream (a great body butter that warms skin as it quenches). © Cover Media
