The eco beauty's holiday gift guide
Out with the old, potentially dangerous products and in with the good-for-you goodies! Since more and more gals are going green these days and turning to organic and natural beauty and fashion products, we decided to help you all out with a few fantastic holiday gift options for the natural beauty in your life. Check them out!
LAVANILA The Healthy Fragrance Deluxe Mini Roller-Ball Set
Like a lot of products, fragrances can be filled with all sorts of nasty toxins that we don't exactly need in our bodies. If you're looking for a natural alternative to the scents those spritzers at the mall carry, check out this deliciously fragrant option! The second we smelled these little babies, we were converted into fragrance addicts! The mini roller-ball set ($34, qvc.com) contains four vanilla scents – Vanilla Coconut, Pure Vanilla, Vanilla Grapefruit and Vanilla Lavender – and offers sweet, candy-like scents without all the nasty chemicals.
Alba Botanica Natural Shower Gel & Body Lotion Gift Sets
There's really nothing more indulgent than lathering up in the tub with a tempting shower gel, is there? We love fun scents but unfortunately many great flavored shower gels aren't exactly natural. But this one is! Alba has two limited edition sets ($10 each, AlbaBotanica.com) in festive holiday flavors – Spiced Hot Toddy and Cranberry Mimosa – that feature a fragrant body wash and moisturizing body lotion. At such a great price, you won't feel guilty buying two if you can't decide which scent you like best!
EA Apparel Hoodie Pashmina
If the natural lady in your circle is a frequent traveler, she'll dig this comfy hoodie pashmina ($90, eaapparel.com) made from sustainable bamboo fiber. The material will keep her warm and cozy while taking a cat nap on that long flight, and she'll feel good knowing she's wearing a great quality material.
Arghand Aromatic Gift Set
We're huge fans of this all-natural brand that gives back to the people of Afghanistan, and we're totally coveting this set ($44, arghand.org) that features one Anisette Balm, one Desert Fields Soap and one Desert Fields Lotion. Grab one for the natural beauty in your life and she'll feel good and be doing good at the same time!
Wool and Recycled Silk Multi-color Arm Warmers
The winter chill is on its way and the natural lady on your list is going to need to keep her hands warm and cozy! Give the gift of warmth this holiday with these fingerless arm warmers ($20, overstock.com) handmade by artisans in Nepal.
Vapour organic beauty trick stick
If ever there were a miracle multitasking product, this is it! This organic little baby from Vapour Organic Beauty ($20, vapourbeauty.com) is called a trick stick for a reason. With one little swipe, cheekbones, brow bones or eyes' inner corners are instantly highlighted to perfection. Well worth the price, if you ask us!
No More Dirty Looks: The Truth About Your Beauty Products
Whether the eco chick on your list is a natural expert or a newbie, she'll love this informative book ($12, spiritbeautylounge.com). As they say, knowledge is power, and she'll be one powerful force of beauty after reading this little baby!
RMS Beauty Essentials Gift Set
If you're looking for an indulgent splurge for the natural lady in your life this holiday season, look no further! This set from RMS Beauty ($150, spiritbeautylounge.com) features everything she'll need to beautify – concealer, eyeshadow, luminizer, coconut cream and a lip to cheek duo.
