Forget paper crowns and plastic toys. These holiday crackers are filled with some of our favourite beauty products of all time. Yes, even Lancome Hypnose mascara!
Jo Malone Christmas Cracker

Lancome Christmas Crackers
Pop open a Lancome Christmas cracker and you might just be the lucky dinner party guest who gets a mini Hypnôse mascara, one of the best mascaras in the history of mascaras, if we do say so ourselves. And touching up your lips for a spin underneath the mistletoe with a mini L’Absolue lipstick has never been more convenient. Although these Lancome Christmas crackers aren’t available on our side of the pond, they’re well worth the trip to Selfridges if you happen to be in London (£50 for six). Selfridges.com
If you’re already in the UK, then you might as well stock up! Kiehl’s Holiday Crackers (£35 for six) are perfect for a party of ladies and gents since they’re filled with some of Kiehl’s most celebrated unisex products like mini versions of Crème de Corps and Ultimate Strength Hand Salve.

LUSH Crackersnap Bath Bomb
Okay, so you probably wouldn’t leave LUSH’s Crackersnap bath bomb (9.95) on your guests’ dinner plates, but it’s more of a gift you just keep for yourself. Throw this amazing lemongrass, bermagot and rosewood scented bomb in the bath, and you’ll find a awesome crown to wear, a silly joke and a crocodile-shaped bubble bar in side once it’s dissolved. Party in the bathtub? You bet! Lush.com
