It’s that time of year again and I’m so excited to be bringing you some of my favorite products from the past year, as well as some limited-edition gift ideas for your friends and family that love clean beauty as much as you do!

As is often the case with products that I choose to feature, all of these brands are run by badass female entrepreneurs who are killing it with totally clean ingredients that we can all feel great about gifting or receiving. Now let’s get to the holiday clean beauty gift guide!

Herbivore Botanicals

This OG clean beauty fave did not disappoint this year with their Self Love Body Ritual Kit, which includes all of the yummiest body faves (2 body polishes and body oil) in one affordable kit.

Tata Harper

If you’re like me and you’ve had your eye on Tata Harper for a while, this season’s gift set is the perfect excuse to try all of the essentials, without breaking the bank.

The Daily Essentials Kit includes a Regenerating Cleanser, Hydrating Floral Essence, Rejuvenating Serum, Repairative Moisturizer, Replenishing Nutrient Complex, Restorative Eye Crème, and Resurfacing Mask.

If you’re looking for a clean beauty gift, this is definitely one that will wow your recipient!

LOLI Beauty

LOLI Beauty has been a favorite of mine for a long time. Their zero-waste beauty model has made them a pioneer in an otherwise notoriously wasteful industry. This season they’ve come out with some great gifts sets that are great to give (and also to get!)

My favorite is the Plum Vibrations Kit, which includes their best-selling hydrating plum beauty oil and a red jasper crystal facial roller (you know I love crystals.) Plus a mini Plum Elixir for traveling.

Otto Skin Goods

I just love the simplicity and elegance of the line that Sarah created at Otto Skin Goods. As a busy Mom, she knew that we could easily streamline our routines and still have an effective skincare regimen. She created her line of 3 easy skincare staples that are great even for those with sensitive or reactive skin.

I love The Staples Sample Trio that they offer, so you can sample all the products before committing to the full sizes. I tend to have sensitive skin myself, so I love the entire ethos of her brand and after sampling all of the products, I especially love The Fresh Start Face Oil.

GIFT IDEA: Combine the samples trio kit with a full-sized facial oil and a rose quartz facial roller and you’ve got the perfect skincare starter kit!

Rahua

This round-up wouldn’t be complete without my favorite hair care products by Rahua. This year, they came out with this adorable little customizable set so you can mix and match all of their best-selling shampoos and conditioners for just $40!

I *may* be purchasing one for myself this year, but it would also make a great gift for someone you love.

GIFT IDEA: Pair this hair care kit with a microfiber hair towel to make the perfect holiday haircare set!

Olio E Osso

If you follow me on Instagram, chances are you’ve seen me raving about my favorite body oil by Olio E Osso. I was really only familiar with the brand for their lip products, but they killed it with this body oil, you guys. They’ve also come out with some brand new lip products, perfect for holiday gifting!

Their new lipsticks and lip sheens are sustainably sourced and designed to give you a pop of color without a long list of ingredients. The formulas are waterless and all-natural.

GIFT IDEA: Combine one of each and put them into one of these perfect makeup bags and you’ve got the perfect holiday gift!

KHUS + KHUS

This was a big year for CBD skincare, and one of the first products that I was able to try was the KHUS + KHUS THE FIX Face Potion. Infused with CBD, Amalaki seed oil, elderflower, and prickly pear, this luxurious cream calmed my acne-prone skin without causing any breakouts.

Everything from this brand is incredibly thought out, expertly formulated using Ayurvedic medicine, the ingredients are completely natural, and everything smells absolutely amazing.

Side note, if anyone wants to gift me this skincare fridge, I think it would be the PERFECT anti-inflammatory compliment to this soothing face potion. (Too bad my husband doesn’t read my blog posts, haha!) It would also make a great gift for the skincare lover on your list.

GIFT IDEA: Just fill a skincare fridge with some of your favorite soothing skincare products and some cute stickers like these and you’ve got the perfect gift for the skincare enthusiast in your life!

Graydon Skincare

They hooked me with their Full Moon Serum and kept me with this new Face Foam. They also unexpectedly rekindled my love for konjac sponges, and now there’s no going back.

With blue-green algae, this Face Foam is a powerhouse of amino acids, vitamins, and minerals to nourish your skin. Azelaic acid, a little known powerhouse, helps to brighten your skin, unclog pores, refine skin’s surface, reduce skin sensitivity, and deliver antioxidant benefits. This little duo is one skincare crush that’s here to stay.

GIFT IDEA: Pair this little duo with a super cute headband, for the perfect nighttime skincare routine set.

Vapour Beauty

I’ve been a huge fan of Vapour Beauty ever since I found out they’re based in Taos, NM where (surprise) I actually lived for a short time. They’ve recently updated their branding and I was immediately yearning to try, well, basically everything. I settled on these gorgeous eyeshadow quads and have been in love with them ever since.

Eyeshadow tends to be notoriously difficult to buy for other people, but I think most of these color pallets would be gorgeous on just about any skin tone!

GIFT IDEA: Pair this eyeshadow with a set of makeup brushes for the teenager in your life!

Maya Chia

Maya Chia EyeFrom the second the cooling rollerball touched my face, I knew that I was in love with this multi-correctional eye serum. I’m not a huge fan of super heavy eye creams, but this oil immediately sank right into my skin and I definitely think that it would make the most luxurious gift item.

Want the same cooling luxury with any of your eye creams? I found the best (budget-friendly) eye cream massager wand that you can pair with just about anything skincare related, creating the perfect gift!

GIFT IDEA: Pair this cooling eye roller with your favorite eye cream and a cute, rose quartz eye mask for a luxurious spa treatment at home.

BOLD & BARE

If you’ve been reading the blog this year, you’ve definitely heard me mention my love for BOLD & BARE at least a few times. Their serum quickly became my go-to during my facial ice rolling obsession this year and I’ve been using it ever since.

If you’ve been looking for a lightweight, but powerfully hydrating serum that doubles as a makeup primer, you should definitely check out their Bare Elixir serum.

GIFT IDEA: Combine their Dare To Go Bare Duo with a facial ice roller and you’ve got the perfect skincare gift set!
