Eco Beauty Holiday Gift Guide
What do you buy for the Eco Beauty lover who has it all? Perhaps this comprehensive list will help with your shopping woes! The small businesses in the Organic beauty industry who are in constant search for higher quality ingredients, more sustainable manufacturing procedures, and tirelessly improving their recipes reign supreme. In my book, the Organic beauty businesses below are the best in their industry. Some names you will recognize immediately, others you will have to try to believe. Regardless, be kind to your skin and fill your stockings with these Eco-friendly brands this holiday season!
Red Apple Lipstick! Their lipsticks are gluten-free, allergen free, and paraben free. Only safe ingredients for your pucker reside here. My very favorite colors are "gypsy" and "ravishing", however, their winter 2015 collection looks lip worthy too. I sure hope one of these falls into my stocking this year. Santa, I have been very good this year!
@theillytrilly introduced my to Jane Iredale mineral cosmetics. Hannah raved about their skin enhancing ingredients with skin-loving benefits. They naturally preserve their products and are cruelty-free. They also support the charity Living Beyond Breast Cancer. One of my favorite products is actually Smell the Roses Hydration Spray. Jane Iredale gives 100% of the proceeds to Living Beyond Breast Cancer from that product. Now that is something you can feel good about on Christmas morning.
John Masters Organics is my hair care everything. I absolutely love their products, but my favorite is their 100% Organic argan oil. I use it on my hair, face, and body. John Masters Organics prides itself on using as many high quality Organic ingredients as possible. Seen above is their Shine On leave-in hair treatment. Aloe based with Organic sea kelp, carrot seed oil, and olive oil. The previously listed ingredients are all Organic. My hair has never felt so silky smooth! Santa, you may leave any of their products under the tree for me.
Skincando is run, owned, and operated by Sara Damelio. Sara uses only the cleanest, purest, and 100% Organic ingredients for her products. She is a local gal out of the DC area and I have the pleasure of saying that I know her well. Sara's miracle cream is appropriately named. This is the only jar of facial cream you will ever need! The miracle cream is cold processed with essential fatty acids + vitamins a & e. You will see diminished fine lines, a more even skin tone, and beautifully hydrated skin from this Eco-conscious product. Just think, it could be sitting under your Christmas tree this year!
Pixi Beauty has really broken through the industry and paved the way for many other Eco-friendly beauty brands. I could not leave without recommending their phenomenal brow palette for the Eco beauty fashionista who has it all! My brows have never looked stronger and more natural. I also highly recommend the glow mist and the palette bronzette. A little Pixi glow will ensure a Merry Christmas indeed!
Light + Love from my family to yours this holiday season.
