Want to spread the green beauty movement but not sure how to convert your friends and family to organic skincare? As we become more aware and educated about how our choices affect our health and the planet, it can be difficult to watch our loved ones slather their bodies with products that contain synthetic, non-biodegradable ingredients. Gifting starter sets are a great way to introduce friends and family to natural and organic skincare, makeup, haircare, bath and body. After all, the best thing about making the switch is being able to try all the new stuff!
Our skin is continuously changing due to external factors such as weather and pollution, and internal factors such as sleep, diet and hormones. This can mean that we are dealing with different skin issues from morning to night, day to day and month to month. The Odacite Tired & Dull Skin Discovery Kit will enable your bestie to raise their skincare regime to another level by trying their hand at mixing their own super cream to target specific skin concerns. We love Great British Beauty, especially when handcrafted in small batches like at Evolve. Evolve’s Let It Glow Christmas Cracker makes a delightful natural, vegan skincare gift for your friend, with a festive, hydrating and revitalising duo of the Radiant Glow Mask and the new Lip Shine with gold shimmer. Alternatively the Calm & Bright Christmas Cracker is full of daily essentials including a Daily Defence Moisture Mist, Hyaluronic Serum 200 and Daily Renew Facial Cream. The added bonus of these Christmas Crackers is that no extra gift wrapping is required! To sample the certified organic Skin & Tonic range, their Gift Set includes minis of five versatile skincare products, complete with an organic cotton facecloth and organic cotton travel bag for your friend’s winter travels.
Tell your friend to forget everything they think they know about natural makeup! Although natural makeup has a bad rep for not wearing as long or offering the same colour pop as their counterparts, Ilia’s Beauty Colour Block Lipstick will quickly change their opinion. This lipstick combines organic castor seed oil milled with customised pigments for long-lasting colour and a colour pop without the need for much more makeup. Plus, it’s elegantly packaged in Ilia’s signature lipstick case. Is your friend always doing her makeup on the go? The Vapour Organic Beauty Moonlight Collection (an exclusive to CONTENT) includes handy little pots of colour and highlighter that can easily slip in the handbag for a little pamper top-up anytime, anywhere.
