Last Minute Beauty Gifts for the Naturalista + Giveaway

Leclisse-natural-makeup-holiday-gifts

As you can tell by the name of this blog, I’m pretty obsessed with all things organic beauty.  “Natural” and “organic” used to be synonymous with “ineffective” when it came to many makeup and beauty products back in the day.. not so anymore.  There are SO many amazing natural beauty products out there that not only work, but work wonders on your skin!

I believe anything we put on our skin should not only make it look better, but also make it healthier, so I get really pumped about natural makeup that promises and delivers just that. L’eclisse creates super high quality cosmetics using the finest minerals that are actually healthy for your skin.  Free of synthetic perfumes, dyes, fillers, or chemicals, the ingredients in their makeup work to soothe sensitive skin, heal and protect from environmental irritants, and hydrate without clogging pores.

If you have a natural beauty on your gift list, L’eclisse has you covered with their awesome holiday gift sets.  Easy peasy last minute gifts for a glowing goddess.

The Holiday Glow Gift Set ($59.99) includes:

  • The Pressed Mineral Blush is silky smooth, and is formulated without talc or fillers, and is loaded with skin protecting grapeseed oil and sunflower seed oil, as well as skin perfecting rosemary.  It comes in three flattering hues that provide beautiful, sheer coverage for just the right amount of glow.
  • The Blush Brush which is vegan, cruelty-free, and made from high quality hypoallergenic fibers for a soft and smooth application.
  • The Natural Lip Gloss made from lip beautifying organic, antioxidant-rich ingredients like coconut oil, carrot powder, rosemary and citrus extracts that heal, protect, and hydrate lips with the most beautiful shimmering shades.

The Mistletoe Kiss Stocking Stuffer ($39.99) features:

Organic Beauty 2013 Holiday Gift Guide!

Organic-Beauty-Gift-GuideBy: Natasha Uspensky, CHHC

Ahhh, the season of gifting… For us, the gift-giving craziness lasts from Thanksgiving (my birthday), through Hanukkah, the hub’s birthday, to Christmas (which we now celebrate with smaller gifts in our post-nuptial tradition), to New Year’s (which is the big, gift-giving holiday in my Russian family). That is a solid month and change of gifts, so I am always on the look out for special somethings to gift to my friends and family.

Being, as I am, a lover of all things healthy, natural, sustainable, and, of course, stylin’, I try to give gifts that are in line with my ethos. Gifting something that promotes health, wellness, happiness, and relaxation is the ultimate gift and show of love to the people in your life. I’ve collected my favorite gifts to share with you, and am sure that you’ll find something for everyone on your list!
