While I love fashion and will never turn down a great meal, natural beauty is my passion.
I started this blog nearly three years ago to talk about the things I love — style, beauty and food — with like-minded people, but over the years, it’s become quite obvious that my one true love is natural and organic beauty — skincare in particular.
I’ve rounded up eight of my favorite natural and organic beauty sets for you last-minute shoppers who need to send me a gift :)
Everything should be available online, and some products may be located in your local health food store or fine salon/spa. Good luck with your final shopping spree (and hey, you may even want to grab yourself something nice, too).
1. Olie Biologique Hydrating Skincare Survival Kit, $96
Olie Biologique is one of my new organic skincare loves. The line is rooted in Moroccan argan oil, and they only use USDA certified-organic argan oil.
This sweet kit contains the pure, organic argan oil in a sleek black jar as well as a full and travel size of Olie’s Huile Moderne 004 Hydrating Oil, a blend of USDA certified organic argan oil, organic rosehip oil, vitamin E, bergamot oil, neroli oil and frankincense oil.
2. Lotus Wei True Joy Set, $125
Remember my review of Lotus Wei perfumes? Well, I’ve been sold ever since, and I think a Joy Juice set is the most perfect gift to spread joy this season.
The set contains an elixir, mist and serum for use both interally and externally. Trust me, Joy Juice is going to get you through the post-holiday return/exchange time.
3. Stark Skincare The Whole Shebang, $120
If you’re finally ready to go natural, or just want a very pared down beauty kit, Stark Skincare’s “The Whole Shebang” is the one to choose.
All you need is right here: A skin cleansing balm that doubles as a moisturizer, an amazing cypress oil that smells oh-so-fresh, a toner that helps keep blemishes away and a green tea mask allows you to customize it to your skin’s particular needs.
4. Indigo Wild Zum Bag in Frankincense & Myrrh, $16.50
I will never be without my Zum Rub in Frankincense & Myrrh, and I’m getting a little bit obsessed with everything in that scent from Indigo Wild.
This TSA- friendly bag will keep my skin in check during the upcoming holiday travel, and it’s a fun way to try the other natural products that Indigo Wild has to offer, including oil, mist, body, tub, bars and rub.
5. Jurlique Hand Care Essentials, $62
No matter how much you oil up, a thick hand cream is a must in the dead of winter.
This gorgeous hand care essentials kit from Jurlique contains four rich hand creams in rose, lavender, jasmine and citrus that are perfect for that person on your list who 1) likes a little variety and/or 2) tends to misplace things and needs constant backup.
6. Badger Balm Classic Lip Balm 6-Pack, Collector’s Edition, $14.99
Badger Balm is one of those tried-and-true, no-fuss, USDA organic brands that I always recommend to people. My first experience with Badger was with these lip balms, and they’re a staple in my natural beauty routine.
These are a great, healthy option for kids, teens and of course, you and me — here’s to a stocking stuffer that you actually want!
7. La Bella Figura The Holiday Purifying and Detox Kit, $110
La Bella Figura knows how to put together a gorgeous, gotta-have-it gift set.
Packaged in a hip chevron-print cosmetics case, La Bella Figura’s Holiday Purifying and Detox Kit contains everything you need to chill out after the holiday madness: Bio Active Purifying Mask (a favorite of mine!), Purifying Facial Steam Teas, 1/8 ounce of Barbary Fig Seed Oil and a sample set of The Travel Diaries Collection (Barcelona, Buenos Aires and Paris Perfume Oils).
Find some time on December 30 and/or January 1 to lock yourself in the bathroom, play a few relaxing tunes and give yourself the at-home spa detox your body is going to need.
8. One Love Organics Beauty Essentials Holiday Gift Set, $139
If you’re into double cleansing (cleansing with oil and cleansing with a gentle wash) and need great exfoliation, One Love Organics’ Beauty Essentials Holiday Gift Set has you covered.
One Love Organics products do not contain water, meaning you get more of the good stuff (essential oils, rich carrier oils) instead of diluted, less powerful ingredients. This kit contains one of my favorite cleansers, the waterless skin cleansing balm that helped me ease into oil cleansing method, a gentle exfoliator that doubles as an exfoliating mask and a microderma cloth that helps pull oil and dirt away from your skin with the softest touch.
