The Ultimate Gift Guide for Natural Beauty Lovers
Impress the clean beauty aficionados on your list with these natural wonders.
As holistically minded beauty lovers know, not all products are created equal — there’s something to be said for powerhouse beauty goodies that deliver results through high-quality, skin-loving, naturally sourced ingredients.
If you’re shopping for one of these natural beauty devotees this holiday season, consider this your definitive guide to the best clean beauty gifts around. These eight presents will help them keep their routine as natural as possible when it comes to skincare, hair care and makeup.
BOSCIA Tsubaki Beauty Oil
This multitasking oil by BOSCIA is a must-have in any natural beauty aficionado’s arsenal. Both lightweight and nourishing, it can be used at any time of day, either straight on skin or mixed with a moisturizer or foundation for an instant youthful glow. Powered by an antioxidant blend of Tsubaki Oil and Wakame, it reduces signs of aging on facial skin and also acts as a smoothing treatment for hair and body.
Bonus: The pretty lilac packaging makes it especially giftable (and secures it a front-and-center place in any skincare cabinet, to boot).
RE:ERTH Holiday Mini Starter Kit
Each award-winning product in RE:ERTH’s Mini Starter Kit is designed to deliver the sought-after Japanese concept of “mochi skin,” which means skin that’s firm, supple, and hydrated with a next-level glow, according to the brand. Featuring their Clarifying Cleanser, Multi-Targeted Elixir, Calming Toner, and Hydrating Gel Moisturizer, it’s the perfect combination of natural and international beauty.
Innisfree My Real Squeeze Acai Mask
If you’re beauty-gifting on a budget, look no further than Innisfree’s line of effective K-beauty sheet masks. Made with 100% cellulose sourced from gum trees (they’re biodegradable), there’s no slipping and sliding down your fact with these masks — they stay put to deliver a soothing dose of hydration.
ILIA Beauty Color Haze
Clean-makeup brand ILIA Beauty has amassed a cult following for their Color Haze product, and with good reason. Ultra-pigmented, creamy, and (most importantly) natural, it can be used on lips and cheeks for a pop of buildable color anywhere, anytime. It comes in a handful of universally flattering shades, so you can’t go wrong with any hue, no matter who your giftee is. All that’s missing is a pretty little ribbon, and your present is set.
Raw Love Sunscreen
Whether they spend their days along the coast or hitting the slopes, sunscreen is a must for everyone — even in the winter. This one by Raw Love is totally reef safe, one of the most clean formulations on the market and made with a short list of skin-nourishing ingredients, including cold-pressed coconut oil, raw shea butter, jojoba oil, vitamin e oil, and of course, non-nano zinc oxide for sun protection. The eye-catching, retro packaging is a darling touch, too.
Naturally Serious Fruit-Tox Resurfacing Facial Remedy
There’s something oh-so-satisfying about slathering on this brightening mask: With a fiery orange hue and clearly exfoliating texture, it’s almost hard to wait the two minutes before rinsing it off. (A word to the wise: Skip the white face cloths for this step!) Made with volcanic pumice, red clay, and fruit and plant-based AHAs that reveal glowing skin, this quickie mask draws out impurities and gently resurfaces facial skin.
HARUHARU Wonder Honey Green Aqua Bomb
Made from at least 95 percent natural ingredients, this winter-ready moisturizer hydrates and calms skin with fermented green tea, honey, and hyaluronic acid. The silky, gel-like cream comes in a mint green, coffee cup-shaped jar for added cute-ness.
Cocokind Scrubbing Clay
Eco-friendly recipients will love that this invigorating scrub is made from upcycled coffee grounds, along with prebiotic chicory and red clay. Unlike most scrubs, it smooths, firms, and clarifies without making skin feel tight or itchy afterwards, and also helps support the skin microbiome.
