SELF-CARE HOLIDAY

GIFT IDEAS

 

CREATE HOLIDAY PEACE, INSIDE AND OUT

It’s easy to feel stressed out during the holiday rush, which is why it’s important to treat your mind and body with self-care. We’re sharing easy ways you can slow down and find relief from stress with our Self-Care Seeker gift guide, full of body and skin care to gift and to receive.

 

 

Self-care is an act of self-love

 

The holidays are a time where we focus on giving to others, but it’s also important to care for yourself. In fact, taking the time to relax allows you to fill up your tank emotionally and physically, so you can return restful and ready to show up again, for yourself and those around you.

 

Slowing down during the holiday frenzy also allows yourself to become more present in the joy of the season. It can be a magical time filled with warmth, and self-care can help recenter your mind to truly take in every moment.

Merry me-time: the essentials

 

We know that me-time can look different for everyone, which is why our Self-Care Seeker gift guide is filled with options for all kinds of R&R. Discover our go-to’s and create a self-care kit for yourself and everyone on your list.

 

STRESS RELIEF

 

You’ve come to the right place. Our stress-fix collection was specially formulated with certified organic lavender, lavandin and clary sage for an aroma that helps reduce feelings of stress. Start with our 96% naturally derived* stress-fix creme cleansing oil to gently cleanse and soften stressed skin in the shower, and help wash away feelings of stress. Follow with our stress-fix body creme and smooth on to deeply moisturize and protect dry skin.

 

WINTER CARE

 

Your hands and feet can face extreme cold weather and intense indoor heat all in the same day, which can leave skin dry and rough. Rescue dry skin from the harsh effects of winter weather with our best-selling hand and foot relief moisturizing cremes.

 

Our rich, 95% naturally derived,* paraben-free hand relief moisturizing creme helps nourish skin with andiroba oil and other plant hydrators, leaving it noticeably softer and smoother. Once tough, tired feet experience the exfoliating fruit acids and plant-derived oils of our foot relief, they’ll feel soothed, invigorated and moisture-charged.

 

GLOWING SKIN

 

Self-care includes how we look and feel inside and out, and our vegan beauty picks not only help take care of your skin but can help you shine all season. To help revive skin, treat it to a plant-powered skin care routine with our botanical kinetics collection. Purify, tone and hydrate skin with our 3-step skin care sets—choose the botanical kinetics daily care for dry/normal skin set or the botanical kinetics daily care for oily/normal skin set, based on your skin type.

 

To brighten your mood (and your mind), swipe on a cheery holiday red shade from the vegan feed my lips collection. We love feed my lips pure nourish-mint lipstick in Cana or Goji. Or gift yourself our 98% naturally derived* feed my lips shimmer topper duo, for two ways to add shimmer, shine and all-day moisture to any makeup look.

 

 

Share the care

 

You can give relaxation to those you love too, by gifting them some of our most-loved self-care gifts. Start with aromatherapy, which can be a naturally powerful stress reliever. Our best-selling shampure composition oil can help create pure moments of peace. A nourishing blend of certified organic sunflower and meadowfoam oils meet our iconic calming aroma of 25 pure flower and plant essences. It’s perfect as a body, massage or scalp oil.

 

Another one of our favorite gifts for stress relief is our rosemary mint vegan soy wax candle. An invigorating aroma of certified organic rosemary, peppermint, spearmint and other pure flower and plant essences helps revive the mind and refresh any space. Plus, the luxe packaging makes it a beautiful gift.

 

Or help those on your list relieve stress with our rejuvenating at home spa starter set. Indulge them with four skin care must-haves, including hand and foot relief, to pamper skin.

 

 

Consciously made, wrapped in love

 

Whether you are gifting yourself or someone you love, our self-care gifts are carefully crafted to care for the Earth and those in it. We thoughtfully choose sustainable ingredients from nature, and as of July 2019, all products manufactured are 100% vegan.** Our collections are also cruelty free—we never test on animals and would never ask anyone to do so on our behalf. And what’s more, we responsibly manufacture our products using our solar array and/or wind energy through credits and carbon offsets.
