These Clean Beauty Gifts Are So Good We Want Them for Ourselves
The clean beauty trend is becoming the norm as more consumers realize the potentially harmful effects of ingredients like parabens and artificial fragrances. The FDA doesn't even require beauty products or ingredients to be approved before they get in our hands, making it up to us to know what is going on our skin. Luckily, there are great brands out there doing the right thing while making us look and feel good. Here are clean beauty gifts to share with your favorite pals or yourself!
A red lip makes every season brighter! Gift your pal this clean lip tint and shimmering highlighter in an eco-friendly bag for the holidays!
This clean and cruelty-free set includes the Naked Papaya gentle enzyme face cleanser, Lemon Honey Insta Swipes (45 pads), and Supermello gel cream moisturizer to usher your bestie into a winter of no dry skin.
This one had us at the fanny pack! But also score a clean and vegan 5-piece set that's all about hydration for your eyes, lips and face.
We love this kit of eight AM/PM skincare products for all skin types almost as much as we love Drunk Elephant's support of the IEF (International Elephant Foundation). All products are cruelty- and irritant-free.
Go-To Face Hero Face Oil ($34)
This mix of plant and nut oils packs a powerful punch of essential fatty acids, vitamins and antioxidants to fight against fine lines, dark spots, dryness and inflammation. Gift for mom?
Support your besties in her mission to take on 2021 with a liquid lipstick named WISDOM, FAITH, COURAGE, BRAVERY, or HUSTLE. We are big fans of this clean POC-owned brand.
Klur Immersion ($70)
Another POC-owned brand we love, Klur's Immersion is a super hydrating serum to give winter dry skin a dewy boost.
Go for the cool-toned Sunset Kit with four lip and eye essentials and a cute lavender travel bag or warm-toned essentials in The Sunrise Kit inside a blush travel bag. The mascara included is amazing!
Briogeo, another POC-owned brand, offers the vegan + cruelty-free hair mask we've been waiting for all our lives. It's perfection for dry, dull and parched hair (even safe for keratin and relaxed hair).
Mischo Nail Lacquer ($20)
These lacquers are 10-free (code for no formaldehyde, parabens and all the harmful chems that come in standard polishes) and designed in beautiful rich colors. They make a great stocking stuffer!
When you can't have a party (because, 2020) you can bring this little skincare party to your gal pals. Score a liquid liner, mascara, and brow gel made with hemp-derived cannabis seed oil, as well as a gel primer, brightening serum and vegan milk moisturizer.
Get this playful trio of creamy, minty lipsticks for all your pals and call it a holiday. Each FSC-certified paper tube is designed by Portland-based artist Lisa Congdon.
Glossier Body Hero Duo ($40)
This one's a great gift for your postpartum friend or any true "body hero" who could use a refreshing body cleanser and (for post-shower) moisturizer to make her day, and skin, a little brighter.
This set is a great intro to the Korean beauty 10-step routine in a pretty-in-pink pouch.
We are big fans of the Japanese skincare brand Tatcha (have you heard our podcast where founder Vicky Tsai shares her skincare secrets? So good!). This intro set should last two weeks and is great for normal to oily skin.
