2017 Holiday Gift Guide

Holiday shopping can be seriously stressful. It’s not easy to find the perfect gift, especially when there are so many options.

So, for all the beauty lovers and lovers of beauty lovers out there, here is an organic beauty holiday gift guide* for 2017 that’s sure to have something for everyone. And there’s no better time to do your shopping than now – Black Friday deals are here!

Iroisie Instant Beauty Fresh Mask

This mask does just what the name suggests: a quick and easy mask that instantly gives you youthful, glowing skin. My favorite time to use this mask is just before doing my makeup for a night out, or when I’m really trying to look my best.

Get it from Jolie Organic (it’s one of their best-sellers).

BYBI Beauty Trilogy (Vegan)

Everyone’s talking about this beauty brand, which has seen a lot of success since launching these three new products earlier this year. In one of my recent posts I wrote about BYBI’s (which stands for By Beauty Insiders) Prime Time and Babe Balm, but I’ve moved on to coveting the “Tribybi” products.

The Detox Dust, Mega Mist and Supercharge Serum can be used separately or together for maximum effect. The products are formulated to cleanse, relax, and revive skin, combating daily strain and pollutants.

These products are also new to Finland and can be bought from House of Organic as well as TwistBe.

Neal’s Yard Remedies Wild Rose Beauty Balm

If you buy just one thing on this list, this is it. Is there anything this award-winning beauty balm doesn’t do? It can be used as a cleanser, to exfoliate and moisturize, as a mask, lip balm, and cuticle cream, just to name the top few.

It’s also won at least 6 beauty awards (that I know of) including this year’s Beauty Shortlist Awards 2017 Best Beauty Balm and Best Healing Balm. I haven’t had a chance to try it yet myself, but I’m sold. Available from Natural Goods Company here.

Madara Fab Skin Jet Set

This is for the jet-setters in your life. Hotel soaps and shampoos are awful, and not everyone has the time and patience to pack their favorite beauty products in 100 ml bottles.

Not only does this set contain the essentials, these products are also great for rejuvenating tired, lifeless skin. Perfect for red-eyes and long-haul flights. Also, my good friend Yana swears by Madara’s Micellar Water.

Josh Rosebrook Lift Hair Texture & Volume Spray

I just started using this product for my curly hair, and I can attest that it lives up to the great reviews it’s been getting. It works great on curly, wavy, frizzy, and lifeless hair – it basically does everything without making your hair sticky or crunchy. And it smells wonderful.

Josh Rosebrook products are available in Finland from Jolie Organic, and there are a bunch of other products to complement this all-star hair spray. I’ve been using the Nourish Shampoo and Conditioner as well as the Enrich Hair Mask, all of which I’m loving.

LUSH Snow Fairy Gift Set

For the girly girls or anyone who just loves PINK. I haven’t had a chance to try these products but I have seen and smelled them, and now I’m contemplating gifting myself this set (because #treatyoself).

 

Ciaté Duo To Go Lucky Penny & Raincheck Polish Set 

This duo comes in three different color combinations in a cute box that can be hung from your Christmas tree or as a great stocking stuffer. Of course I chose this set, because it includes a lucky Penny! Check out all three sets here, here and here online at Eleven.fi.

Ekovista Pure Organic Shea Butter (Vegan)

I’m a big fan of Shea butter, and yes, you can get it from a bunch of different places. This one from Ekovista is from a Fair Trade producer in Northern Uganda. By supporting Northern Uganda’s Shea production, you’re supporting nature preservation, local tradition, and the livelihood of Shea farmers.

It’s 100% pure, unprocessed, preservative-free, and can be used in a hundred and one different ways. Buy it from Ekovista here!

Sante Sweet Cherry Gift Set (Vegan)

If you’re a fan of sweet-smelling products (which I definitely am), you’ll love this set. It smells good enough to eat. You can buy this from Natural Goods Company here!

And…the ultimate gift…

The Jolie Box!

Truly a gift that keeps on giving. The Jolie Box is a monthly subscription beauty box from Jolie Organic that sends you a sampling of 4-6 products every month, of which you are guaranteed at least two full-sized products.

You’ll also get first access to new and limited edition products and promotional deals. And the more months you buy, the cheaper the box becomes. What an exciting way to discover your new favorite products!

Happy shopping!

-Penny

    1. Hi Valentina! Lately I’ve been using Josh Rosebrook’s Enrich Hair Mask that I has been really lovely for my hair, which is extremely dry and damaged. Another mask that I really like, that’s also more affordable, is the Natura Siberica Arctic Rose Repair Mask. I hope that helps!

      1. Thanks Penny, I will try those! There are so many different products available, I am scared to pick something without knowing that someone had already tried that and it was lush 🙂
