BY TERRY • The Gem Glow Collection



When it comes to high end beauty, it doesn't get much better than BY TERRY as they are a brand way up there. As you may already know I am a big fan having used their line for many years now, yet they still excite me with every new launch.

We are in that zone where we have been bombarded with gift set, after gift set and it gets overwhelming as not all gift sets save you money, so make wise choices. Let me say this, By Terry know how to create a gift set; luxurious, high quality and you get what you pay for so should you be looking for some last minute gift ideas or some shopping ideas for yourself then I may just have a few ...

This years BY TERRY GEM GLOW COLLECTION includes products all designed to make your skin glow for the festive season and all year round. Amongst the collection are two Limited Edition items that had me so excited and are not to be missed out on. I love the precious gem theme and the rose gold detailing on the boxes making them my favourite gift sets so far. They are not only visually stunning but they hold products that are just as gorgeous inside. By Terry did kindly gift me these sets to me so that I could share them with you and showcase my personal favourites ... which I would have asked Santa for anyhow!

Starting with one of the Limited Edition products that had me CRAZY excited, the GEM GLOW Trio Compact  ...

• GEM GLOW Trio Powder Compact, £49/€55 (buy here)
This Limited Edition Compact powder was inspired by the reflection of gemstones and is designed to illuminate your eyes, face and lips. The silky soft powder feels like velvet and contains light reflecting mineral pigments and prisms to naturally radiate your skin. It is not glittery, shiny or 'moon-beam' like, but a stunning colour palette that works to lift and boost your skin. Ideal for all skin tones and especially those who hate sparkle and shine in a highlight. You can apply it alone or mixed together, however you do it .... your skin shall simply glowThis really is one stunning highlighter powder. 

The rose gold compact and gem stone design is just so beautiful (and so me!) making it one very elegant yet stylish compact. However, it is made from plastic which may disappoint those who like a weighty metal compact but this for me means that it's very portable and less fragile. Whether you just buy this one for yourself, I highly recommend doing so whilst you can!

On to another favourite and a product which I use near enough every day ...

• GEM GLOW Brightening CC Serum Set, (39ml) £76/€85 (buy here)
This Special Collectors Edition Set houses the three best selling CC Serums; all of which are an iconic product loved by many of us. This is a colour correction radiance serum that lifts your complexion instantly whilst evening out skin tone. The silky serum is enriched with white rose stem cells to add a natural glow whilst micro-spheres create a soft focus, a bit like a real life filter to blur out fine lines. The signature rose scent just adds to the luxury of the serum. You can use it in so many ways but I love to use mine as a base under my foundation or mixed in with it. On a good skin day, you can even wear it alone! I wear shade No.3 Apricot Glow and this is certainly a hero product of mine, reviewed on the blog here

The Shades
N°2 - Rose Elixir - The perfect partner for rosy skin tones, it restores flush to dull complexions and youthfulness to lined faces.

N°3 - Apricot Glow - Adds plump, juicy, vitamin-rich radiance to lacklustre skin tones. The secret to a sexy nude look... for all ages! 

N°4 - Sunny Flash - This milky amber caramel shade delivers the first flush of summer or balances out dark skin tones with a gorgeous glow.


The CC Serum retails individually for £61/€68, 30ml full size so the set is a little more expensive than buying it alone but you do get an extra 9ml and is a great way to get your hands on all of the shades.

• GEM GLOW Brightening CC Serum Limited Edition, Shade 100 Gem Glow £61/€70 (buy here)
If you already love your CC Serum as above then this here is a brand new Limited Edition Nude-Rose shade that is out of this world!! I think if you were to mix all three other shades together then this would be the result; it is one stunning shade. If you are a CC serum fan then I would get your hands on this one fast as it is possibly my new favourite.

• GEM GLOW Baume De Rose Duo Set - Lip Balm/Hand Cream, 37g, £44/€49 (buy here)
You can't think of By Terry and not think of Baume de Rose; it is famous worldwide! In the beauty world, this rose balm is a serious icon and a diamond of all lip balms. It has a non-sticky shine that is unlike any other balm out there and the delicate rose scent is so feminine and chic. I love the fact that Terry built a whole body range around it yet with that said, I still haven't got round to trying the body care so I am thrilled to have this luxurious hand cream in my possession! The delicate scent, the richness, the packaging ... add it to your wishlist.

In this set you get the applicator version of Baume de Rose as opposed to the pot version which is ideal for using on the go for your cuticles as well as on your lips as a treatment and for a glossy lip finish. This is such a perfect pampering gift for anyone ....  if you can bear to part with it that is.

 • GEM GLOW Baume de Rose Mini Tree Decoration 3g, £20/€22 (buy here)
Mistletoe kissing lips at the ready! Featured again in mini either under your tree .... or on it! The original Baume de Rose has never looked so cute and would make the perfect small gift should you need a little something. Maybe some fancy table gifts perhaps? (I then want to be sat at your table!). It really doesn't get any cuter or more luxurious than this.

There are a few more gift sets online also here!

By Terry, Gem Glow Collection 2018
I think you can agree, By Terry sure do know how to make us want it all. The whole GEM GLOW Collection has been well thought out and the Limited Editions just make this collection even more enticing. For me, my top recommendations would have to be the LE Glow Compact and the CC Serum Set as I just think they are star products that would make any beauty lover happy especially if they wouldn't necessarily spend that on themselves. I do however recommend getting your hands on the Limited Edition CC Serum should you already be a fan as it really is stunning.

By Terry, Gem Glow Collection 2018
These are essentially all high end beauty gifts, so if you are looking for something a little bit special then do take a look at By Terry in general as they are a brand that is definitely in my opinion worth investing in. 

What item is your favourite from this collection? 




🌟 With big big thanks to Santa aka By Terry for these stunning Christmas gifts; I hope you will love them as much as I do! 🌟
