Clean beauty is here to stay and is looking more glam than ever! If you are new to space, below are 10 clean beauty products and brands that I highly recommend. These make perfect holiday presents for minimalists, beauty enthusiasts, or those who say that they have it all. (…Until they tried one these clean beauty gems)!
Clean Beauty Skincare Products
Tata Harper is a luxury clean beauty company that takes pride in creating beauty products using 100% natural ingredients. The brand’s cleansers are some of the best treats for your skin. The luxury price point may stop us from making the purchase regularly. Instead, why not make this a great holiday present?
For oily, acne-prone skin, I recommend the Tata Harper Clarifying Cleanser ($72). The foaming cleanser balances the skin’s oils without stripping it, leaving a matte yet comfortable complexion. I am obsessed with this cleanser! My skin feels so smooth after I use it. It’s expensive but worth every penny in my opinion. I use it every night and have seen a big reduction in my breakouts.
For normal skin, the Tata Harper Nourishing Makeup Removing Oil Cleanser ($82) is a perfect gift. This multi-vitamin cleansing oil can remove stubborn makeup without drying out the skin. It replenishes your skin with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants to create a soft, supple feeling.
Biossance is a clean beauty brand founded by a biotechnology company. Their mission is to create sustainable beauty products that are safe for your skin and the environment. Retailing for $58, this travel kit offers five clean beauty essentials packed with squalene – the most popular skincare ingredient of 2019. Biossance’s vegan squalene is a multi-purpose moisturizer that mimics our skin’s own moisture. Used in skincare products, squalene creates a weightless barrier than locks in moisture and prevents wrinkles and fine lines caused by dryness.
A gift that keeps on giving – the top shelfies kit includes the Peptide Eye Gel to prevent dark circles, Phyto-Retinol Serum that chases away fine lines, Probiotic Gel Moisturizer that hydrates and minimizes pores, Omega Repair Cream that nourishes and restores moisture, and Vitamin C Rose Oil, which smooths and brightens our skin.
Since 2011, the clean beauty brand Herbivore Botanicals has created safe, therapeutic and effective skincare products. This three-piece travel set satisfies all the skincare needs for a self-care routine. The Coco Rose Body Polish gently exfoliates the skin, the Rose Hibiscus Hydrating Face Mist tones and hydrates, while the Coco Rose Lip Conditioner is a nourishing balm that can help smooth lips.
This value set comes with three clean beauty products that make a perfect gift for any skincare addict. The Beauty Elixir is a cult favorite for makeup artists and the beauty community. The multi-purpose spray is packed with powerful plant extracts, which can smooth fine lines, tighten pores and instantly set makeup. The set comes with two gifts: the Instant Foaming Cleanser and The Instant Detox Mask, perfect to purify and revive our skin after a long day.
Clean Beauty Makeup
Not only is this volumizing mascara made with natural ingredients that are safe and kind to our lashes, but the green packaging is designed to be refilled once the mascara runs out. This is a great product to introduce your friends or family to the clean beauty movement. It saves the environment from more plastic packaging in the most elegant way!
Every woman needs a neutral eyeshadow palette in her makeup collection. This talc-free eyeshadow palette can perfectly complement any skin tone and suitable for every skin type. Ilia formulates all its products with clean and often organic ingredients. The chic packaging design makes this brand the perfect holiday gift for your friends or family. The Canadian brand is transparent about its clean yet effective ingredients, as well as its use of sustainable packaging.
Saint Jane Beauty is a conscious beauty brand that offers luxury products with healing, CBD plant-based ingredients. Its Microdose lip gloss is the first-ever lip gloss infused with 50mg CBD oil. CBD has been another hero ingredient of 2019 thanks to its antioxidant properties. The luxurious gloss glides on beautifully, and its natural ingredients such as sunflower, chamomile, and aloe soothe and moisturize lips for a healthy glow.
Clean Hair and Body Products
You can use The Do-All Wash and Do-All Conditioner as shampoo, body wash, face wash, conditioner, hair mask, and shaving cream. Your entire bathroom can be KonMari’d to just two bottles, a perfect holiday present for quality loving minimalists.
Meant Simply is designed to minimize the number of body products we use by combining the benefits of multiple products into one. Its clean body products are made with natural and organic ingredients that deliver results without being harmful to our skin and hair.
Sephora recently launched its “Clean at Sephora” category to help shoppers easily find clean beauty and skincare products. This fragrance sampler includes seven sample-sized bottles from the most popular clean fragrance line at Sephora. It includes Virtues, Rosie Jane, Clean, Ellis Brooklyn, Phlur, Maison Louise Marie and Skylar. In addition, Sephora allows you to trade in one sample that you liked for a full-sized bottle at no extra cost! Who wouldn’t love getting two gifts in one !?
I often forget to pack hair products with me when I travel. As a result, I end up using cheap hotel shampoo and conditioners or having to buy something from a drugstore to get through a few days at an Airbnb. This hair essential travel kit will definitely be on my Christmas wishlist! Playa is all about using clean, effective and only the necessary ingredients to help you get that California beach girl hair!
