The holiday season is in full swing, Christmas is fast approaching and I have yet to get any gifts for my friends and family. Oops. In case you also haven’t found the perfect gift for your the beauty lovers on your list, here are my top five picks.
1. Body Care
Sometimes it’s too tricky to pick out makeup or skincare for others, but you can’t go wrong with body care. It’s practical, but still a treat. 100 Percent Pure has a few different gift sets on their site, but you could always assemble your own from your local health foods store.
2. Clove + Hallow Lip Velvet Trio
This set of three matte liquid lipsticks would be the perfect surprise for the makeup obsessed. Nontoxic budge-proof liquid lipsticks are nearly impossible to come by, so I think anyone who’s missing the conventional version would be thrilled with these. I haven’t tried them yet, but I’ve only heard good things. Choose the nudes or brights for $45. Individual lip velvets retail for $18.
3. Face Mask
I think face masks make a great gift because they encourage the recipient to pamper themselves and we can all use a little pampering. My pick is (no surprise) the Mermaid Detox Mask from Captain Blankenship. It works on a variety of skin types and leaves your skin feeling squeaky clean but not stripped.
4. Petit Vour Subscription Box
If you want to spoil your loved one for months to come, a subscription box is the way to go. Petit Vour has one if not the best nontoxic beauty box. It’s also cruelty free and vegan. Pricing ranges from $15-$25 per box and you can choose a plan that works best for you. Every month, they’ll get four products and can earn store credit by reviewing them. Right now, you can get a free Au Naturale lip stain with the first box. Sounds like a pretty good deal.
5. Freaky Health Beauty Bar
On a more playful note, maybe the perfect gift is this vegan and refined sugar free chocolate from Freaky Health. The beauty bar contains good for you ingredients that will make your complexion glow. Eat chocolate and get more beautiful? Yes please. It was just too cute not to include!
I wasn’t sure if I was going to do a gift guide this year, but I’m glad I did because all of these would make lovely presents without any fuss. Okay, I should probably get shopping now.
