The holidays are the perfect time to give (and to get) some truly luxurious beauty products. For the beauty lover on your shopping list, go for quality over quantity. Especially when it comes to the most important people in your life, it's much more meaningful to skip the cheap scented gift sets, and to treat them to clean and healthy luxury items that they might not splurge on for themselves.
When it comes to luxury beauty, the most gift-worthy items aren't always the most well-known either. I love to receive luxury beauty gifts from smaller brands.
Their products are truly unique, and it's always so evident that they put a lot of thought and care into each item.
Though I know it can be a little scary to purchase from brands that you aren't familiar with, especially when it comes to gift-giving. That is why this year my 2019 Holiday Gift Guide only includes products from brands that I've personally tested and products that made it onto my list of favorites for 2019.
One of my favorite clean hair care brands of 2019 was Kavella Hair Care. I had the pleasure of testing several of their hair styling products, and I was very impressed with the high-quality performance in conjunction with their healthy all-natural formulas. Made with nourishing plant-based oils and extracts and with a natural scent of apricot kernel oil, everything at Kavella is a treat for the hair and the senses without any harsh or synthetic ingredients. When it comes to gift-worthy hair care products, I'd suggest the Kavella Hair Care Recovery Mask. Pair it with a shampoo and conditioner set or a few of their lovely styling products, which you can shop by hair type!
Another favorite hair care brand of mine this year was Lis'n Beauty. They provide professional hair care and body care products made with naturally-derived farm ingredients including proteins from sheep wool; moisturizers from soybeans, beeswax, macadamia seed and corn; and scented with ruby-red grapefruit. For the travel and beauty lover, you can't go wrong with this Lis'n On-the-Go Kit. It's a great way to sample each of their hair products, and it's perfect for traveling or on-the-go. For a luxury bodycare gift that anyone is sure to love, this Lis'n Beauty Holiday Crate-N-Body Set with body wash and lotion comes in an adorable little wooden crate and a seasonal gift box.
When it comes to truly all-natural body care, one of my favorites brands this year was Roses and Azalea. They carry everything from natural deodorant to lip balm and the best dry shampoo I've tried thus far. Their packaging is modern and minimal and perfect for anyone wanting to make the switch to healthier non-toxic beauty. For a nice sampling of their best-selling products, go with the Bestsellers Kit. This little set of fan-favorite products covers the most basic must-have essentials including their Dry Shampoo for Light or Dark Hair, Face Serum, Peppermint Lip Balm, Charcoal Detox Mask, and a Charcoal Lemongrass Deodorant Stick all in a TSA-approved travel bag.
For the beauty guru who is also into crystals and moon cycles (like I am), Apothecary Company is the perfect combination of both! They provide crystal-infused skincare and aromatherapy that is crafted with meditation in mind, all made with effective botanicals and natural essential oils. A few of my favorites at Apothecary Company include their Black Magic Detoc Charcoal Mask and Illuminati Brightening Glow Mask (perfect for stocking stuffers) and their Unicorn Magic Shielding Elixer for beating anxiety. For a crystal-infused body care gift, try their new Sea Salt + Peppermint Organic Body Polish made with fine sea salts, organic oils, and organic peppermint oil for an invigorating and nourishing experience.
Whether the beauty lover on your list is all about natural ingredients or would like to start incorporating more clean and healthy products, these brands have that extra special touch that makes these products truly gift-worthy. You can shop my top picks in luxury clean beauty with the links below!
