CLEAN BEAUTY GIFT GUIDE

I compiled a list of clean beauty products I love and know these are universally flattering. All of these are luxurious, clean beauty products free of toxins and abundantly organic. Holidays are a time to splurge on ourselves and loved ones. However, a mindful approach can bring a new found love for non-toxic cosmetics to a beauty lover that is hooked on Sephora. Although Sephora is beginning to stock green beauty brands, the selection is limited and most people don’t know where to start. Here is where this gift guide comes in. Share this with your friends to give them ideas and maybe a *hint *hint! For the complete list of clean beauty sales and holiday promotions visit this page.

I wanted to get this to you in time for you to take advantage of the Citrine Beauty sale as follows. I happen to also have an affiliate discount code ERIKA10, will save you 10% on your first purchase here*EXCLUDES MAY LINDSTROM & KYPRIS

 

Jane Iredale, Lash Primer $19

Jane iredale lash primer is the Best lash primer to keep natural mascara from smudging

Best lash primer to keep natural mascara from smudging

If you want to make your green beauty woes go away, buy this lash primer. At $19, this lash primer will not only condition your lashes but it will allow any mascara to perform. The purpose of this primer is to make the mascara stick to your lashes and not flake or smudge. It WORKS! Even the most smudgy mascaras I’ve tested perform much better. The Jane Iredale Lash Primer also adds tons of volume to any mascara. Since most natural mascaras are lengthening, I found they lack in the volume department. This primer fixes so many mascara isuues and it lasts forever it seems. Such a great buy for any of your friends, or a stocking stuffer for yourself! Find it here.

Agent Nateur Deodorant $21

Agent Nateur deodorant is the perfect gift for those luxury beauty lovers

Agent Nateur Holiman deodorant keeps you fresh and woodsy

 

Agent Nateur Holi(man) deodorant is by far the most decadent and fabulous non-toxic deodorant on the market. There are 3 scents in the Agent Nateur line but the Holi(man) scent is my favorite. This deodorant works well for both men and woman. My husband has used up 2 of these and loves it. Great gift for those hard to shop for men. There is also a rose scent for those ultra feminine friends in your life. Courtney Kardashian wears this deodorant, it’s that extra! You can read more in this post I wrote.

Scent profile: A SEDUCTIVE, HANDMADE BLEND OF AROUSING VETIVER, HEART OPENING ROSE, CALMING SANDALWOOD, LEATHERY CISTUS AND WARM CEDARWOOD.

Ingredients are non-gmo, pesticide free, hand made in small batches. You can purchase Agent Nateur here

Here I am, hi! Wearing Ilia Nobody’s baby lip swatch & RMS Beauty Luminizer X Quad

Ilia Nobody's Baby bullet swatch

Ilia Nobody’s Baby bullet swatch

I’ve featured this lipstick many times, most recently “Top 10 Organic Products Under $45”. Which is also a great resource for holiday shopping. Nobody’s Baby is a sheer (build-able) peachy nude. Rarely do I find a nude that flatters both fair and olive skin. Flattering nudes on tan skin is kinda hard to find.

This tinted lip conditioner combines organic oils and beeswax to sooth and hydrate lips. It’s perfect for the cold winter months where lips are crackin everywhere. I gifted this to my sister and she’s not usually big into lipsticks; but fell hard for this lippie. It makes your lips look sexy and youthfully plump. Winner in shade and formula. Pick it up here.

Innersense Hair Care, Travel sizes $8 Full size $26+

Innersense organic hair care for long thick hair

Innersense hair care line perfect for those wanting strong, healthy hair

I’ve been using Innersense haircare products for 2 years and highly recommend the line. Innersense is salon quality, but with organic and clean ingredients. They have a huge lineup and keep adding more products. Most of the lineup is offered in $8 travel sizes which are great for stocking stuffers and creating custom holiday sets. The shampoos are my least favorite but I recommend everything else. Read my Products I’ve used Up + Replacements post featuring some Innersense products. All found here.

The standouts:

Hydrating Cream Conditioner (only on ends) especially for long dry hair.

Sweet-spirit leave-in conditioner (on my 5th bottle no joke)

Inner reflection finishing polish

I create lift volumizing & lifting lotion AKA Mousse

 

Kjaer Weis, Mascara $38 {refill $28}

the best green beauty mascara is kjear weis mascara organic

Kjaer Weis Mascara wand is perfect for separation and bottom lashes

Tired of natural mascaras flaking and smudging? Me too! I have very oily eyelids and most natural mascaras give me raccoon eyes after a few hours. The KW mascara is bullet proof and will make all your green beauty friends swoon with the gorgeous metal (and refillable packaging). This mascara is lengthening and can be built up with many layers without clumping. The brush is super skinny and separates your lashes perfectly. Brush is thin and long- enough to coat bottom lashes easily and quickly. For more volume layer over the Jane Iredale Purelash primer. You can purchase the mascara or only refill here.

 

RMS Beauty, Luminizer X Quad $48

RMS Beauty is the OG in clean beauty and one of the best brands out there. Founded by Rose Marie Swift, the Victoria Secret Angels makeup artist. Need I say more?? The makeup is cream based and super easy to apply and gives your skin a youthful radiance and glow. Luminizers are all the rage right now, and I’m elated to see RMS released 4 NEW highlight shades. They can be mixed for custom colors and come in the sleek white packaging fit for any beauty lover. With so many color options this can be gifted to friends of all skin tones. The cream formula is especially flattering on mature skin, as powder highlights accentuate wrinkles and texture. Purchase the quad here.

PALETTE INCLUDES:

The Beauty Chef, Hydration $50

The Beauty Chef is an Australian Eco Beauty supplement

The Beauty Chef is an Australian Eco Beauty supplement

Hydration, Inner Beauty Boost is an organic, bio-fermented, coconut infused probiotic designed to support gut health and enhance skin radiance from the inside out. That’s a mouth full, but bottom line this tastes yummy (maple syrupy coconut water) and it works. If I’m going to buy an expensive beauty supplement it has to taste good and perform. Our skin is like a grape- nice and plump when hydrated, but left outside and dry… begins to look wrinkly and less than desirable. Hydration, helps relieve dry, dull skin, ageing and fine lines and free-radical damage.

I’ve tasted a few other Beauty Chef supplements and they were okay, but non compare to the extraordinary HYDRATION! I’m not usually big on supplements in general but this one is easy to incorporate into your daily routine (mix with water) and you feel instantly more hydrated and see a difference in your skin with continued daily use. Buy it here.

Alternatively, you can purchase the Beauty Chef Holiday Boost Gift Set. Includes the 3 beauty boosts in a pretty gift box:

Collagen Inner Beauty Boost 100ML

Antioxidant Inner Beauty Boost 100ML

Hydration Inner Beauty Boost 100ML

the beauty chef holidat set features the 3 beauty boosts for hydration, antioxidants, and collagen production

The Beauty Chef Holiday Trio set

Antonym Cosmetics, Brush Set

Who doesn’t love super soft, vegan, luxurious makeup brushes? Antonym cosmetics has 3 different brush sets. I bought the 6 piece brush set and it’s my most used set. Bristles wash easily and the makeup comes off the beige bristles. Sustainable made with bamboo handles. I’ve been using mine for over a year on a daily basis and the hairs do not shed and the handles are still going strong. Many of the cheaper brushes have issues with the tops falling off or getting annoyingly loose. Nothing worse than gifting cheap brushes that fall apart. Antonym brushes on the other hand will bring long lasting delight to you or whomever you gift this to.

EYE BRUSH SET $72: Comes with 6 eye brushes, in a black vegan leather pouch.

6-PIECE SET $82: {set I bought} A mix of face and eye brushes, in a black vegan leather pouch. The large powder brush is, oh so soft, and displaces the perfect amount of setting powder and blots the oil away seamlessly. I even wrote about the small angled brush in my post, “Top 10 Organic Products Under $45”. SO you should really read that post!

TRAVEL SET $102: Similar to the 6-piece set, the only difference is the addition of the blending brush #10 and the case has a built in zippered makeup bag. Hence the travel friendliness of it.

May Lindstrom, The Blue Cocoon $180

expensive luxury skincare that is also organic, may lindstrom skin

The most expensive beauty product I own

This wouldn’t be a luxury beauty lover’s post without May Lindstrom’s The Blue Cocoon. This face balm is holy grail in green beauty for good reason. I bought it this summer, you can read about my Birthday Beauty Haul here. I’ll eventually write up a dedicated blog post but in short:

♥ Blue Cocoon heals acne better than any other acne treatment or spot treatment I have tested. Believe me when I say I’ve tried hundreds of products since I was 14 and got my first pimple. I battled cystic acne for over 10 years and you can clearly see I healed my own skin. I wish I had discovered the blue cocoon years ago and saved myself all the wasted money on products that made my skin worse.

♥ Works as a healing salve for inflammation, rashes, bites, and/or environmental pollution. Ever wake up puffy from allergies or hives (rashes) from pollen? I DO! It’s a terrible way to start the day and this heals it the quickest and feels extremely soothing instantly on those itchy irritated patches.

♥ The aromatherapy is UNREAL. The scent is unlike anything else I’ve encountered. I feel as though I’m a goddess every time I rub this on my face and chest. The scent is sexy with her signature blue tansy, cacao and vanilla notes.

→May Lindstrom is excluded from all sales, including the black friday sale, but I paid full price and will repurchase AGAIN. You can buy yours here or a sample.
