This 2019 Holiday Gift Guide for any clean beauty lover includes amazing & safe skincare, gorgeous makeup products, clean fragrances, hair care & more!
Happy Monday! Here today with my second gift guide of 2019 – a holiday gift guide for the clean beauty lover in your life! Be sure to check out my Health Nut gift guide from last week after you scroll through this one! 🙂 It’s 2019, which means we NEED to be paying attention to the ingredients & products that we are using, applying, & putting onto our bodies, which is why I put together this list to assist you in choosing something special & SAFE for that person in your life who just LOVES all things hair, skin, makeup, & nails! All 25 items have passed my “clean” test, meaning I would feel 100% comfortable using them or have already used them, & love them, which is why they made it onto this list!
This past year, I had the chance to discover some incredible beauty brands, all included below, & tried some really amazing products that quickly turned into favorites of mine! For this gift guide, I wanted to include a little bit of everything. All price points too, to help make shopping just a little bit easier!
I’m a big fan of facial oils & this one is for sure one of my absolute favorites that I’ve had a chance to try this past year! With supercritical extracts & pure organic oils, The Good Oil is amazing for soothing & repairing inflamed skin! It’s extra nourishing, smells amazing, comes in recyclable packaging, & overall is just a really strong product – I love it! Want to check out more of this brand? Check out my review of The Organic Skin Co., where I talk more about this oil in depth!
Big fan of adaptogens over here, you might have picked that up already from my Health Nut gift guide! Beauty Dust is an adaptogenic blend of Schisandra, Amla, Ashwagandha, Rehmannia, Goji & Pearl that assists with stress relief & is known to combat accelerated aging, helps protect from free radicals, & improves skin clarity!
ILIA was kind enough to send one of their tinted lip conditioners over to me last week & WOW, was it stunning! This lipstick will give you a sheer finish, while also hydrating your lips as if you were wearing a lip balm! Their shade range is just beautiful too, I got shade In Paradise & I love it.
This LAWLESS palette is seriously amazing. LAWLESS is another one of my favorite clean beauty brands & this palette is something that I’ve had my eye on for a while now! Annie Lawless, the founder of LAWLESS, is such an incredible woman, & I love watching her brand grow…they even came out with a mini version of this palette, I almost snagged it on Black Friday but they were sold out!
I had the chance to get to know the owner of this brand over the past few months. Which was so amazing! Karen (the owner/founder) has formulated an entire skincare line with healing green clay & the benefits that this clay bring to your skin & any inflammation you may have is incredible! I was able to try almost the entire Immunocologie product line & nothing dissappointed. Their Vital Clay Mask is one of my favorites, as well as, their Hyaluronic Serum!
LOVE, love, love this gorgeous Glisten & Glow Skin Illuminator from Lilah b.! This was the first “cream” highlighter that I’ve used & I’m seriously in love with it. I like to apply it with my fingers so I really have control of how glowy I want my skin to be, but the formula is so smooth & applies beautifully – you can even use it as an eye shadow! And the packaging is absolutley so stunning & sleek too!
This skincare fridge is for the true skincare fanatics & I so respect it haha! If this idea of a skincare fridge is new to you, yes, it is definitely a real thing & ensures beauty & skincare products last longer! Refrigerating your skincare also helps preserve clean ingredients & maintains optimal freshness of the products!
Another product that I’ve absolutely fallen in love with from Lilah b., has been their Aglow™ Face Mist, which is a misting spray that can be used to prime, refresh, or set your face after you’re done applying your makeup. I was really happy to switch over to a clean setting spray & instantly fell in love with this one!
9. Wild Spirit Fragrance Holiday Star Fragrance Discovery Set
I love Wild Spirit & the values they put behind their fragrances! Their Holiday Star Fragrance Discovery Set allows you to try 5 of their gorgeous scents, all with roller-ball applicators, & small enough to toss in your purse or makeup bag! My favorite out of the five scents is their Spring Jasmine with is scented with Bergamot, Blackcurrant, Clove, Lemon, & Sichuan Pepper natural oils. All of their fragrances are paraben free, sulphate free, dye free, & are scented with essential oils – which I absolutley love! Oh AND this set is under $20 – so not only are the scents amazing & high quality, but they’re insanely affordable too!
If you’re not doing something to stimulate lymphatic drainage – now is the time to start! This Pursoma Detox Dry Body Brush will help you do just that! You can read all about the benefits of dry brushing here!
I’ve yet to try this Tata Harper Resurfacing BHA Glow Mask, but it’s definitely gotten some rave reviews this year! It’s supposed to banish skin dullness & refine the look of your pores, oh & smells amazing, thanks to its 100% natural formula!
I got this Sephora Clean Makeup Kit this summer & I was seriously blown away with the value of this little box & it’s currently on a major sale! In the kit, you’ll receive small sample sizes of 6 amazing clean makeup products that are carried at Sephora. I love each one & even though it’s just a sample size, it’s still a lot of product & I think it’s such a great deal, especially if you’re new to clean beauty & want to try a few things out!
Over the past few months of using Cupid & Psyche’s all-natural lipstick, I became quite impressed with the wear time & formula of their lipsticks! Their shade Artemis is one of my top five go-to’s right now, especially for a red/burgundy! It stays in place, is really hydrating thanks to ingredients like shea butter, coconut, avocado, grapeseed & jojoba oils, & has a gorgeous hint of golden metallic shimmer!
14. Dazzle Dry Toxic Free Nail Polish Holiday Gift Set
As you might already know, nail polish is pretty toxic. With that said, I’m SO happy to be finally introducing toxic free nail polish into my life! Dazzle Dry has created a toxic free nail system & STUNNING nail polish shades without a bunch of harmful & toxic ingredients. They currently have holiday gift sets, which comes with their nail primer, a base & top coat, as well as, 2 nail polishes! You can use code MADI4DD for 20% off!
The best skincare I’ve ever used. I’ve never noticed a major difference in my skin prior to implementing this Countermatch Collection. And the best part? It’s been a leading factor in helping my skin heal from a horrible outburst of hormonal acne this year. My acne has been an ongoing problem for me since January! Beautycounter has incredible skincare & I’d recommend this set to absolutely anyone. Plus, this collection is newly revamped in gorgeous sustainable glass bottles & comes with a brand new product, the Hydra-Gel Radiance Toner – which I cannot wait to try!
Speaking of toners, I’ve heard great things about this Youth To The People Kombucha + 11% AHA Exfoliation Power Toner, I heard of it through Melissa Wood (health & wellness guru that I follow religiously!) & it’s supposed to be really beneficial for acne too, due to ingredients like lactic & glycolic acid, which are great for people who are acne prone!
Perfect for all hair types, this Ritual Hair Oil from Playa will smooth frizz, restore moisture, & protect your hair from environmental damage, such as overexposure to the sun!
Favorite product ever! This Overnight Resurfacing Peel has been a total game changer for me & for the quality of my skin! So much so, I think I’m going to be dedicating a whole blog post to it! I apply it every other night & the benefits have been just astounding! It helps clear away dull skin cells that lead to acne, it improves overall skin texture, boosts skin clarity, & more! I don’t think there is one person that wouldn’t benefit from this peel! All you have to do is apply it to clean skin & let it work its magic! No “peeling” necessary & you don’t even have to wash it off in the morning! Extremely gentle too, while still being incredibly effective.
Having good brushes can make a world of a difference when applying your makeup. This Beautycounter Essential Brush Set comes with a fan powder brush, an angled blush brush, an all-over eye brush, & an eye crease brush! High performing, soft & smooth bristles, that are 100% animal-hair free!
Prose is a custom haircare system that is formulated based on your own specific needs for your hair, which I love! I’ve yet to try Prose, but I was impressed with the quality & transparency they show when it comes to their ingredients. They also have an option to create a gift for someone for them to customize on their own, which I think can make a really cool gift!
CLOVE + HALLOW is another great clean beauty brand I had a chance to try this year. I really enjoy a handful of their products including their stunning Sunrise Pressed Pigment Eyeshadow Palette full of gorgeous warm tones & even comes in earth-friendly packaging! I also love CLOVE + HALLOW’s Lip Crème in Desert Rose.
I’ve talked about SanRe Organic Skinfood multiple times here on the blog & a product that I still love & use from their all-natural skincare is the Hibiscus Pure Gentle Exfoliating Face Cleanser. It smells like an absolute dream & really is a great exfoliator! And especially if you’re acne prone, exfoliating at least once a week, is really important!
You can for sure cleanse & detoxify your face like the professionals with this Vanity Planet Facial Steamer. This facial steamer is great for unclogging pores & stimulating circulation!
This beautiful rose quartz gua sha facial sculptor is perfect for enhancing your natural beauty by helping to stimulate lymphatic drainage in your face, reduces puffiness, smoothes out fine lines & wrinkles, & visibly sculpts & defines your face!
I’ve always curled my hair with a straightener for YEARS, but I recently got my hair done at a new salon & my stylist curled my hair with an actual curling iron & I was so impressed & just loved the look of it, so I’ve had my eye on a few curling iron sets since then! This T3 Curling Iron Set is definitely more of a high end option but is really popular & comes with three different sized ceramic barrels.
I hope you enjoyed this holiday gift guide for the clean beauty lover in your life! Stay tuned for two more guides coming to the blog this week – including some really fun stocking stuffers!
