Let’s get started with my first of many holiday gift guides… I’m so excited!
Prose is a unique company that depending on your questionaire/goals/issues customizes your shampoo and conditioner for exactly what you need! Totally customizable for your gift recipient right down to the scent. So good and anyone would be thrilled with this unique gift.
Herbivore retinol and plumping serums set I got the retinol as a sample and damn near died at how good it is! No lie. This gift is perfect for anyone 30 on up!
For the nail polish loving recipient on your list. This Ella and Mila firm foundation is the bomb! I tried this as a recommendation and let me tell you…. it has made my mani’s last 7 solid days if not longer! A bargain and a great stocking stuffer or combo gift with a polish.
In the pursuit of healthy hair – you need a good brush that doesn’t tear your hair out at the root, helps detangle and make it shiny! This one by Briogeo (vegan boar bristle) is absolutely phenomenal.
If you prefer to have a gift in hand and want a great hair care duo… Olaplex is incredible as well. Great stocking stuffer, hostess gift, whatever… Olaplex is one of my favorite hair companies. Olaplex has a cult following and for good reason. Their hair mask and oil alone make this set a great value for the price.
Ella and Mila cuticle oil. The health of your nails and cuticles is critical. A stocking stuffer idea, for the person who loves manicures/pedicures, pretty much anyone who uses their hands, has dry skin… I’m on my second bottle of this and I’m amazed at the transformation.
Eco tools makeup brush set. A great gift the new makeup user or anyone who needs a brush reset. Vegan. Great quality.
First Aid Beauty skin products are on another level. If you have bumps on your arms, their bump remover is crazy good. Super healing and hydrating. This kit is perfect for winter skin.
This cap is the silk pillowcase for your hair! Grace Eleyae is a BIPOC owned company. Satin lined cap prevents hair breakage, frizz and bedhead!
Saturday skin for the acne sufferer. This glycolic toner evens texture, smooths and refines the skin.
Farmacy is another cult favorite. Black owned business. Products that actually do good and work! The reviews are insane on this product. Helps with dull and dry skin. Plus cleansing with a balm isn’t drying out the skin whatsoever. This would be great paired with the cleansing cloths on this guide.
Maison Louis Marie perfume oil is woodsy and earthy. Clean and has no SLS’s or sulfates. A lovely earthy scent for the cooler months.
Kitsch makeup remover cloths are truly amazing and will literally remove every single bit of lotion, sunscreen and makeup from your face each evening. Plus they save your towels from makeup and mascara staining.
Cocokind plant based retinol overnight mask. I use this mask 3x a week. I absolutely love how soft and smooth my skin is in the morning. I’m a big fan of Cocokind products and this one is at the top of my list.
