Can you believe it’s December? With Christmas being around the corner I thought it would be fun to do some green gift guides. Let’s start with some gift ideas for the beauty lover, shall we?
There are some really nice gift sets available that would make a great gift for someone who loves beauty and skincare. These sets are also a great way to introduce someone to green and clean beauty. The green beauty world is growing and with all the choices it’s hard to pick something if you want to start using safe and non toxic products. These sets are great because the don’t cost a fortune and you can try some products and see if you like them before commiting to a likely more expensive full size.
Credo Beauty has some nice gift sets for Christmas. They have 4 different Credo sets. Something for everyone!
The Fresh Start Set would be a great option for a teenager or anyone who is struggling with congested skin and/or breakouts (hello, me!). It comes with a cleanser, a toner, a mask and a spot treatment. The Glow & Go Set is suitable for all skin types. Who doesn’t want a glow? It also comes with a cleanser, a mask, a moisturizer, an eye cream, a treatment and a superfood supplement powder (beauty and glow inside and out). The Hydrator Set is targeted towards dry and sensitive skin types. It comes with a cleanser, a gentle exfoliator, a hydrating toner (Josh Rosebrook Hydrating Accelerator -a cult product in the clean beauty world), a facial oil and a face mask. The last set is the Discovery Set. This would make a great gift for someone who’s into clean beauty already. It features 6 products from this years most popular brands.
Some other great gift sets are the Beauty Heroes Limited Edition Indie Spotlight Discoveries.
You can choose between 3 different boxes. Each box is $68 and features products of one particular brand. The boxes not only have a great value but are all from female owned brands!
Beauty Heroes also did a Limited Edition Brand Ambassador Discovery this year. 5 of the 6 different boxes are still available. The prices per box vary from $49-$129.
For the lipstick lover
The average woman eats about 7 pounds of lipstick in her life. If she uses a conventional lipstick she might eat some harmful chemicals and toxins too. Using a clean lipstick is always a good swap! Good thing there are some nice lipstick gift sets available too, yay!
The Ilia Modern Romance Tinted Lip Conditioner Gift Set (Phew, that was a long one!) is great if you have dry lips but want some color too. Very moisturizing on the lips and the color is buildable from a sheer wash of color to a bolder look. This set comes with 2 of their bestselling shades -Nobody’s Baby – the everyone nude, and Crimson & Clover – a fiery red. One Tinted Lip Conditioner is $28 normally but with this set you get 2 for $38. A great deal!
Another great set is the Kosas Color Trifecta Weightless Lip Color Trio which comes with 3 fullsize lipsticks. The shades are Rosewater (cool tone sheer pink), Stardust (warm tone sheer neutral) and Undone (warm tone opaque neutral). A lipstick is $28 normally but you get 3 for $58.
Last but not least is the 100% Pure Fruit Pigmented® Pomegranate Oil Anti-Aging Lipstick Duo which comes with 2 fullsize lipsticks. The shades are limited edition -Red Gold (a metallized red with gold shimmer) and Rose Gold (a metallized mauve with silvery pearl shimmer). A lipstick is $30 normally but with this set you get 2 for $39.
Conventional perfume can be loaded with harmful ingredients too but luckily there are safer options out there. Whether you want to surprise the perfume lover in your life or try some safe perfumes yourself. There are some great fragrance sets out there!
Let’s start with the Ellis Brooklyn Fragrance Discovery Set.
With this set you get sample sizes of all seven of the brand’s eau de parfums. A great way to try out her fragrances. For $22 this makes a great stocking stuffer!
Another set is the By Rosie Jane Discovery Set.
This set comes with 5 eau de parfums and is also a great way to try out her perfumes. You could also layer them and create your own signature scent! This set is $30.
If you prefer perfume oil there’s also a set which features 5 perfume oils.
Perfume oil doesn’t contail alcohol and is supposed to last longer on your skin. This set is $50.
Last but not least we have Phlur. They are gluten free, vegan, cruelty free and a B certified Corporation (pretty coll, huh!).
You can sample 3 of their fragrances for $18. Each set includes a credit toward a full-sized bottle.
Have a great weekend guys!
