Holiday Gift Guide: Part 2

IMG_3306

Following on from yesterday’s Holiday Gift Guide: Part 1, today I have picked some great gifts for the Nearly (All) Natural-ists skincare lover out. These beauty buffs prefer to have their products be mostly planted based, but don’t mind a few (very minimal and purposeful) synthetic ingredients in the name of the best formulations, and these sets are the perfect example of that.

NUDE SKINCARE TRIPLE RESCUE SET $36/£30

IMG_3307

CONTENTS AND INGREDIENTS: PERFECT CLEANSE OMEGA CLEANSING JELLY, PROGENIUS OMEGA TREATMENT RESCUE OIL, DETOX BRIGHTENING FIZZY POWDER WASH.

NUDE are definitely one of my all time favourite brands and this set was an actual dream come true for me (you might hear that a lot in this post).  This perfect little set contains a 10ml size of the Rescue Oil, 10 sachets of the Fizzy Powder Wash but most importantly, a 30ml size of the Omega Cleansing Jelly. I am so happy because ever since I discovered this amazing cleanser last year, I have needed a mini version of it for all the trips I take and now I have one! I have been recommending this set to absolutely everyone since it launched because the Rescue Oil is my current favourite, the cleanser is in my Top 5 and the sachet fizzy washes are so convenient for travel. This is exactly the type of skincare set I look forward to when the holidays come around and I highly recommend it.

OSKIA RENAISSANCE COLLECTION £85

CONTENTS AND INGREDIENTS: RENAISSANCE MASKCLEANSING GEL AND HAND CREAM.

Oskia’s Renaissance Cleansing Gel is a long time favourite of mine and I love this holiday set which includes that as well as two other products in the Renaissance range (mask and hand cream). Even though these products are full sized I would still recommend this set as an introduction to the brand because I honestly don’t know anyone who doesn’t love the cleanser and the mask. They are both suitable for all skin types and gentle enough for those with sensitive skin. While this is not a sample set, it would make a beautifully packaged gift at a great price (you are saving almost £10) that anyone who loves skincare would enjoy. If you would still prefer a sample sized gift from Oskia, they also have this super fun cracker that contains a travel size of the Renaissance Cleansing Gel, which I have been dreaming about for years and am just so excited they have finally created.

DRUNK ELEPHANT THE LITTLES $80

CONTENTS AND INGREDIENTS: UMBRA SHEER PHYSICAL DEFENSE SPF 30, C-FIRMA DAY SERUM, T.L.C FRAMBOOS GLYCOLIC NIGHT SERUM, VIRGIN MARULA LUXURY FACE OIL, PEKEE BAR, JUJU BAR.

This set is just the absolute cutest (the name is also adorable) and I am so excited about it. Drunk Elephant are such a great little brand and I have been so interested in trying the whole range and this is the perfect way to do that without spending a whole lot of money all at once. You get a miniature version of every single product in the line (except the new-ish Eye Serum and the very new and very cute Lip Balm), with enough use in each to really get a feel for the products and see how they work with your skin. What I am most happy about is the travel friendly  sunscreen because I love it and now I have a mini one I can carry around with me for touchups throughout the day, which (yep, you guessed it) is a dream come true for me!

JUICE BEAUTY SENSITIVE SKIN POWER TRIO $75

IMG_3312

CONTENTS AND INGREDIENTS: EXFOLIATING CLEANSER, ANTIOXIDANT SERUM, ORGANIC TREATMENT OIL.

Juice Beauty are such a recent discovery for me but I am quickly becoming obsessed. I recently purchased the Hydrating Mist and the Blemish Clearing Serum and both are so good that I am already looking to try more. I love the look of this set because it contains the Exfoliating Cleanser, Antioxidant Serum and USDA Organic Treatment Oil, which would be great additions to anyone’s skincare routine. I really like the concept of Juice Beauty as they use a mix of organic, natural and plant based ingredients while limiting anything synthetic to keep the products as “green” as possible. I have noticed a lot of the products have a base of aloe vera (one of my favourite ingredients) as well as containing apple and grape juice (yum!), both of which are full of skin loving vitamins and supplements. They have so many great sets but I really think this one would be the best suited to all skin types.

JOSIE MARAN ARGAN OIL SENSATIONS $48

IMG_3309

 CONTENTS AND INGREDIENTS: ARGAN BALMCLEANSING OIL, LIP AND CHEEK CREAMY OIL, ARGAN OIL, LAVENDER INFUSED BODY OIL.

I have been a long time fan of this nature based beauty brand and love all the sets they have released for the holidays. This year, this one really caught my attention because it includes the Argan Balm in their signature Vanilla Apricot scent – this, I need. Not only that, it includes core products from the skincare range like the Cleansing Oil and 100% Pure Argan Oil (in two sizes) as well as a lavender infused Body Oil and a Lip and Cheek stain that looks like it would suit every skin tone. Another set from them that I really like the look of is this one because it contains the Cleansing Oil, Argan Oil, Pure Argan Milk and Sunscreen. They have so many great sets, all beautifully packaged containing different combinations of their amazing products that you really can’t go wrong no matter which one you pick.
