How are you going to handle giving beauty gifts this year? They can sometimes be beyond the average budget. But these suggestions are little gifts you can give yourself and still afford to buy a bunch for everyone else. These items from Herbacin, Soapstandle, Mineral Fusion, and Loloma Fiji, are the ones I’m using personally now.
Herbacin’s Lovely Set of Tins:
Winter can be hard on your hands and skin. Actually, any season can be unkind to your skin. This lovely, limited edition set of Hand & Skin Care is a perfect gift for just about everyone. You can’t go wrong with gifts from the well-respected, well-loved brand, Herbacin. Their boxed gifts include 5 tins of TLC that are each 0.67 fl. oz. With so many of my beauty favorites well over the 3-ounce limit, I’m more careful than ever about what I travel with. There is a pink set and a red set. Our sample had 5 green tins: Herbacin Kamille Hand Cream Original, Kamille Hand Cream Unscented, Herbacin Kamille Intensive Moisture, Herbacin Wellness Hand Cream Wild Rose, and Herbacin Wellness Hand Cream Lavender.
Each formula offers something special protective moisture to hydrating aromatherapy. If the $21.50 isn’t quite enough of a gift for your special people or you need a little stocking stuffer, add the Herbacin travel-friendly sapphire nail file ($7.95). It makes sense with the hand creams but it sits on my desk all the time and makes a great stocking stuffer. Note that the file has an ultra-fine, high-quality sapphire coating that won’t rip your nails to shreds, and shapes them beautifully. Visit https://www.herbacinusa.com/
Gifts of a Golden Globe:
Loloma Fiji pure virgin coconut oil is so gentle you can even use it on babies. The pure white coconut oil arrives in a white and gold carton with a plastic applicator. Inside is a golden orb. Impressive! Inside is an almost unscented, multi-tasking product coconut oil. Coconut oil has natural Vitamin E and healthy fats and it’s good for lips, around your eyes, and as a cleanser and moisturizer, of course. This antioxidant oil can hydrate your skin for up to 24 hours. One thing to note is that it is liquid over 71 degrees. I keep mine in a fridge to keep it solid.
The press release suggests using Loloma coconut oil as a natural make-up remover. Use it on your hair as a deep conditioner hair mask, cuticle oil, or massage oil. “Gift” this to yourself and your dry skin will thank you. In case your recipient asks what this is, you can tell them Loloma is derived from organic coconuts sourced from organic plantations in the Northern Islands in Fiji. Loloma extracts the coconut oil naturally without chemicals and the oil is naturally clear. Loloma’s filtration technology gives the oil a light coconut smell (or you can get it with hibiscus or mango). I like that the scent isn’t overpowering. This 2.5 oz. golden ball of goodness is just $32 Get Loloma Fiji on amazon.com or visit https://www.lolomafiji.com/
Two-Fer Kit Gifts for Beautistas!
Every beauty fan loves kits. The Limited Edition Mineral Fusion Natural Beauty Eye & Lip Kit is a little boxed treasure! The Duo included Mineral Fusion’s So Classy Volumizing Mascara in Jet Black (with peptides for thicker lashes). INatural gums and waxes that help prevent flaking. I also like the way my lashes feel nourished from this mascara.
If that’s not enough to whet your desire, there’s a non-sticky Hydro-Shine Lip Gloss in “Paris.” This has just the lightest wash of pale pink color and lots of shine (you can see it in my photo). Vitamin E is so nice to keep your lips soft and healthy. Of course, the products are vegetarian, free of gluten, artificial fragrance, phthalate, paraben, and harsh ingredients, But the best part could just be the $20 price tag ($35.00 value). Get a bunch now and these are sure to sell out quickly. Visit MineralFusion.com and Amazon
The Gift of No More Soggy Soap!
Gooey soap is gross. Furthermore, it’s a waste of money. That pricey bar you purchased will be gone too soon unless it is kept dry. The Soap Standle keeps your soap off the soapdish and allows the air to circulate around it so that it won’t slip, drip, or become a blob of goo. My soap has lasted a lot longer since I discovered it. There are a couple of different styles. Basically, the SoapStandle is just a ring of plastic with little points on the side to grip your soap. There are curved versions for classic curved soaps (e.g. Dove), and flat SoapStandles for flat bar soaps.
The SoapStandle also comes in colors such as red, white, pink, and blue to match your decor. To use the SoapStnadle, press your soap bar into the points on the SoapStandle. If your soap is too hard to get the points into it, microwave the bar for 15 seconds. when the points start to show through the soap bar, it’s time to get a new bar. A pack of two on Amazon was just $12. These little gadgets can give your soap up to 30% more life. So practical, eco-friendly, and a great gift idea.
