I just love Christmas time, it is my favourite time of the year...
From the winter fashion, Christmas parties, to time spent with loved ones. However the one thing I do not enjoy about the holiday season is shopping for Christmas presents. It can be exhausting thinking of what to buy everyone. As the days are fast approaching towards Christmas day, the panic increases of what you should get for your mum or your bestie. Why not add a few clean beauty gifts under the tree this year. As the clean skincare industry expands there are so many amazing gifts you can choose as a present during the Christmas season.
My Christmas gift from me to you is my clean beauty gift guide. These present ideas are for your nearest and dearest who are conscious about skincare ingredients, sustainability, or animal welfare. Or you could be into a clean living lifestyle yourself and want to share all the wonderful benefits of clean beauty during the season of giving.
Stocking fillers for me are affordable gift ideas that are also thoughtful. Just a small token that can be useful in everyday life. The Happy Naturals body care range is available on Amazon and from Sainsbury’s supermarket. The ingredients are 97% natural and the products work just as well as your regular body care ranges. The brand is free from a lot of the usual nasties that go into skincare products and the remaining three percent ingredients list are preservatives.
They also have gift packs available under twenty pounds, making the brand a perfect option for secret Santa. A favourite of mine is the Soothing In- Shower Moisturiser, which contains Shea butter. You apply it after using your shower gel and it leaves my skin feeling hydrated and soft. I have also used it just as a shower gel and it lathers up brilliantly. Another gift to add to the stocking is the Nourishing Body Scrub which has gentle exfoliating beads to keep your body silky smooth.
For the make-up junkies in your life treat them to the Honest Beauty Extreme Length Mascara and Primer. I am really obsessed with this mascara and it has become my new staple, it gives you lashes for days!! It has a separate primer on one end of the package to condition the lashes and then you finish off with the mascara to create long and dreamy lashes.
For that special individual in your life sometimes you like to spend a little more to treat them. Neom Organics candles are a beautiful gift for Christmas, luxury candles that contain no synthetic fragrances or fillers. Just pure smelling essential oils on a natural wax base. The price for the candles ranges from £16 to £150 depending on the size and how many wicks the candle comes with, the maximum number of wicks on one candle is four.
What Christmas is not complete without giving or receiving some perfume? Neom Organics also have new natural well-being fragrances that not only allow you to smell great but also help with your mood due to the essential oils.
If you are looking for 100% natural and ethically sourced ingredients for the naturalistas in your life then The Primal Beauty brand makes the perfect festive gift. The Shea butter natural cream range is my number one pick from the brand and the cream is heaven on my skin. The cream is a thick formula that spreads easily and keeps your skin so moisturised. The cream lasts for ages and the jar is produced from glass that can be recycled. There are different flavours to choose from such as lavender, orange and lemongrass. I prefer the pure shea butter and coconut cream as I am in love with the smell.
Why not give the gift of pure essential oils and a diffuser to elevate a family member’s self-care routine. Filling the room with gorgeous aromas can help to improve skin appearance, depending on the property the oil. Essential oils can be effective in so many ways for the skin such brightening, soothing oily skin or irritations. Tenswall have really good oil diffusers with a lighting function to help to set the mood in the home and the products are reasonably priced. You can purchase pure essential oils without fillers from Neal’s Yard Remedies. The Aromatherapy Essential oil Collection is handy as the gift set contains pre-mixed essential oil blends for de-stressing and revitalising. Everyone needs some stress relief during the holiday season so this can make the perfect mood boosting gift.
REN skincare have produced the cutest clean skincare gifts sets made out of 100% recyclable boxes. The gift set range is reasonably priced and the sets contain some of my favourite REN products. The get the glow radiance gift set contains the ready steady glow daily AHA tonic which is a vital part of my skincare routine, which helps to even out the texture on my face. The sets are amazing as they allow the recipient to try out a particular clean skincare routine step by step.
My hands are forever dry and even worst during the winter time. If you have a family member or friend who has crusty hands like me then Sukin Nourishing Hand Cream Trio gift pack is a lovely present to help to hydrate the hands during the cold months. The set contains three different creams packed full of natural ingredients that enrich the skin.
