Last Minute Green Beauty Holiday Gift Guide

With Christmas less than a week away, I'm sure I'm not the only one still scrambling to find gifts for the last couple people on my list.  With that in mind, I put together a small grouping of green beauty picks for fellow last minute gift hunters.  Given the limited time frame, I've only included things that should be pretty easy to track down...

1. Konjac Sponges
These little sponges make washing your face fun!  The ones I'm currently using are by Dr. Sponge, who makes several different options, so there's bound to be one to suit almost any recipient.  I will say, if you're in Toronto, apparently konjac sponges have yet to fully hit.  I called multiple stores last week and most people that I spoke to hadn't even heard of them before!

2. Lippy Girl Vegocentric Lipstick
If you're buying for a beauty lover, you really can't go wrong with lipstick!  Lippy Girl's are vegan and organic and come in a great range of colors.

3. Weleda Hand Cream Gift Sets
Weleda is pretty widely available and their hand creams are some of the best.  Plus, these gift sets are just too cute!  Choose between cult favorite Skin Food (amazing for those extra dry spots) or Pomegranate or Sea Buckthorn Hand Cream.  The sets also include a mini body lotion and a $2 off coupon, good on your next purchase of Weleda body care.

4. Skin Essence Organics Serums
I really think there's nothing better than face oils for keeping skin hydrated through the winter months and Skin Essence makes some lovely blends.  Super effective and at a price point that won't break the bank, these serums would make an excellent gift for any skincare lover on your list!

5. Nourish Organic Body Wash
I picked up Nourish's body wash in a couple new-to-me scents during their Black Friday sale and it's really rekindled my love of the brand.  These USDA certified body washes are luxurious and creamy and are something I keep coming back to.  (They also do matching body lotions and butters if you feel so inclined.)

6. rareEarth Candles
I'm generally not a big candle person, but rareEarth's are pretty stunning.  Not only are they made with a blend of GMO-free plant and beeswaxes and scented using only essential oils, they're also colored by hand with only mineral pigments.  I found them at my Whole Foods, but they're also available online.

7. Local Handmade Soap
There's something really lovely about using old-fashioned handmade soap, particularly when you can find some that's made locally.  Ground Soap (pictured above) is a great choice if you're in Ontario!  

Have you finished your Christmas shopping yet?


  1. I love my little konjac sponge. I don't thing you can go wrong with Weleda either. Great selection of gifts.
