I love being able to find the perfect gift for someone. It usually involves a bit of research, a lot of patience to wait for the right find, and some insight into the best products available for their favourite interests or hobbies. If you want to save time shopping for the natural beauty junkie on your list, I’ve created this gift guide of eco-friendly natural beauty items that anyone would love to unwrap during the holidays.
Barefoot Venus is one of my favourite brands for luxurious, natural beauty products. Every time I slather on their lotion, or use their oil, I feel like I am giving my skin a treat. They smell amazing too (a variety of scents are available). I love how perfect this gift set is – it comes with an oil mustard bath, wash, lip balm and Argan oil in a gorgeous reusable pouch.
Add a little extra mint (and relaxation) to the holidays with this refreshing bath duo. It comes with a cranberry-mint soap bar (which combines two classic holiday scents) and a mint bath bomb. This is for the person on your list who deserves a little me-time and who will appreciate the opportunity to pamper themselves.
Oleum Vera DIY Organic Body Care Kit
For the DIYer on your gift list, who also happens to be a beauty lover, this DIY body care kit will be a welcome addition to their skin care routine because they get to customize their own products. This kit includes recipes (and ingredients) to make body butters, scrubs and lotion bars.
Urban Spa Make up Brushes
Every beauty fanatic knows that the right tools matter. These make up brushes come with their own travel case and have vegan fibre bristles. Fresh brushes can replace their older set that may be neglected or they may become their go-to for travelling or at school. This kit includes a foundation and concealer brush, eye shadow brush and a blush and powder brush.
Burt's Bees Lip Kit
I think this is such a fun, trendy kit, and the perfect way to experiment with the stunning nude look that is so popular. This Burt’s Bees set comes with three different lip products in three different coloured tones, plus instructions on how to layer them together for the fresh nude look that has just a bit of colour and shimmer. This would be an exciting gift for the person on your list who loves experimenting with their make up.
Face masks may feel like an indulgence for some people, which makes them the perfect gift. Let someone treat their skin to one of the Andalou Face masks (there are different ones to choose from to help brighten or clarify). Plus, the size of the packing is perfect for stocking stuffers.
Natural beauty products can be just as trendy as mainstream items you buy at a local pharmacy or make up counter, but they don’t come with all the questionable ingredients. The beauty junkie on your list will love and appreciate any of these gifts, and you get the added bonus of knowing you are not only giving something they love, but something that will love their skin and body back.
