Crackers of old used to be cringe worthy. Packed full of awful Dad jokes and plastic toys destined to end up in the bin within the hour, but the new generation of crackers with a beauty twist bring a whole extra level of excitement to our Christmas celebrations.

Over the past couple of years we’ve seen a host of festive treats pop up in the beauty halls with everything from beauty advent calenders, beauty baubles and now, in what is probably our favourite incarnation of the merry theme – there are beauty crackers. Adding a touch of modern luxury to the tradition, these will be sure to set your dinner party off with a bang.
