‘Tis the season…and I’m still rounding up some last-minute gifts because I’m a total procrastinator. In any case, I always enjoy any opportunity to sneak in some green beauty gifts for my family and friends! I selected a few of Credo Beauty’s show-stopping green beauty products (available in-store or online,) that will surely impress even the biggest humbug out there:
-For your trendy younger sister // ILIA Beauty + Baggu Gift Set
This chic, naturally-milled rose-gold leather pouch and set of organic mini lipsticks will surely make her jaw drop. This gorgeous gift features three pocket-sized versions of ILIA’s bestselling colors, shades that every girl needs: an everyday nude (Nobody’s Baby), a sheer wearable berry (Bang Bang), and an opaque dramatic red (Femme Fatale). Plus, extra points for giving a gift that will keep her stylin’ in many ways beyond the holiday season. $48. (Currently sold out at Credo, get it at ILIA Beauty.)
-For your picky bibliophile friend // Ellis Brooklyn Verb: Excellent Body Milk
This unisex body lotion is luxurious without being fussy. Inspired by “the frank, action-oriented prose of Ernest Hemingway,” this deeply moisturizing lotion treats and nourishes skin thanks to a blend of rosehip oil, Vitamin C, and camellia oil, and meadowfoam seed oil. The irresistible scent includes organic ingredients like bergamot, mandarin, basil cedarwood and skin musks. Housed in a gorgeous, recycled glass, lead-free bottle with apothecary pump, this locally made product would be a sweet gift to pair with a book to express how much you care without saying too much. $55, 8oz.
-For your mom who does it all // Tata Harper Multi-Masking Collection
This stunning set of Tata Harper’s popular facial masks might just encourage your mom to slow down and indulge in an at-home spa day. This set includes three facial masks that not only addresses all skin concerns but can also be layered together as a multi-mask. The Resurfacing Mask provides instant glow, the Purifying Mask cleanses surface impurities, and the Limited Edition Honey Blossom Resurfacing Masks boosts hydration. Plus, you know mom will be open to letting you share in on her spa-day at home! As Tata Harper describes it, this set is “the ultimate beautifying mask trifecta.” $178, with 3 30ml jars.
-For your boyfriend/husband/guy friend who’s very particular about fragrances // MCMC DUDE No. 1 All Natural Cologne
Most of the guys I know are pretty hesitant to try natural fragrances, but this one from MCMC might just be a keeper. DUDE No.1 (gotta love that name,) is a 100% natural cologne, containing only denatured alcohol, essential oils and absolutes. The scent is deep and exotic, with musky notes. Consisting of a blend of three woods: Virginia cedarwood, creamy sandalwood and smoky Haitian vetiver – accented by spicy ginger and pink peppercorn with a heart of Moroccan rose. In my opinion, you might be tempted to sneak a few sprays of this cologne, I definitely think ladies could wear it! The convenient and chic spray-top glass bottle makes this a pretty attractive gift as well. $75, 30ml.
-For your colorful bestie // RMS Beauty Vixen Nail Polish Set
Impress that friend who’s tried every makeup color out there with this festive nail polish set from RMS Beauty. It features three full-size nail polishes in exclusive shades that are cruelty-free, vegan, and 6-free. Vicious- a sophisticated mulberry shade for wintery elegance, Infamous– a festive crimson shade for instant holiday glamour, Luminizer X– a high-intensity, frosty ice color which can be worn alone or on top of any color. Friends don’t let friends wear icky nail polish! $35.
-For your dad or guy-pal that “doesn’t need anything” // Red Flower Petal Topped Candle in Icelandic Moonflower
He probably won’t admit it, but he likes a good-smelling candle just as much as the next person. This luxe candle consists of a cotton wick, food-grade dye, and 100% vegetable cosmetic grade candle wax scented to be reminiscent of the great outdoors. The scent is fresh, mossy, and masculine. Topped with scented petals (to be emptied into a dish as potpourri) and boasting a 50 hour-burn life, this candle is anything but basic. And let’s face it, this is also something he would never think to buy himself. $38, 6oz.
