If someone on your holiday gift list is an aficionado of vegan body care products, you’ll want to purchase the purest offerings you can afford. Fortunately, the popularity of natural, cruelty-free body care lines has led to a dramatic increase in high-quality products. Here is a handy list of four gift ideas for your discerning vegan friend or family member. You can thank us later.
You can’t get much dreamier than Pacifica’s Wake Up to Roses set. Check it out at www.pacificabeauty.com. At only $15.00, this present is both luxurious and a bargain. The set includes the Rose Kombucha Powered Face Wash, which utilizes flowers and fermented tea; the Dreamy Youth Day and Night Face Cream, a concentrated mix of peptides, antioxidants, and advanced extracts; and the Wake Up Beautiful Super Hydration Sleepover Mask, which is great for tired, stressed skin (and that’s not hard to imagine during the holidays, right?) Pacifica is an all-vegan company based in Portland, Oregon, and we can personally vouch for the excellence of their products. You can also find Pacifica products at your local Target and Whole Foods! Top-notch!
If you want to treat your friend or family member to the best (and who doesn’t?) check out Luminance’s Facial Collection Gift Box ($48.40) at www.luminanceskincare.com. Like all of Luminance’s gift boxes, this offering is on sale at 12% off during the month of December. The set contains four of Luminance’s most popular items — the Delicate Cleanser, a very pure liquid soap; the Rosewater Toner, a pH balancing concoction made from fresh roses; the Deep Hydration Moisturizer, a blend of pure moisturizing oils; and the Rosewater Mask, a mixture of herbal extractions, oils, and rosewater. This luxurious set comes in a lovely, reusable box, and is sure to delight anyone on your gift list. Every one of Luminance’s offerings are vegan and cruelty-free. You can’t go wrong!
The winter chill can dry out your skin, and this requires protection. The all-vegan Cake company’s Bod Squad Body Lotion Gift Set ($16.00) has your loved ones covered in four different ways. You can view it here: www.cakebeautyusa.com. These creamy elixirs contain coconut oil, shea butter, and aloe vera. They come in four festive scents: sweet mint, clementine, candy sparkle, and iced gingerbread. Many other holiday offerings are available as well, and they’re reasonably priced. The Cake Company offers free shipping on all orders over $50, so why not order several gifts?
Makeup is an essential part of many women’s beauty care regimen. Vegan makeups have come on strong during the past few years. We’re especially excited by Shiro Cosmetics, a hand-crafted all-vegan line. Just looking at the website, www.shirocosmetics.com is enough to make a gal drool. Anyone on your gift list will be wowed by the Cozy and Bright Collection ($46.80 for the entire set). Eight shades of winter highlights are featured, with names like “Sweater With Knee-Length Sleeves” and “Mulled Wine in the Bathtub.” The company was founded by a 19-year-old snowboarder in Portland, Oregon. How cool is that?
The above suggestions are just options to get you started. Google “vegan beauty care holiday gift sets”, and countless options will pop up on your screen. Have a good holiday, and happy shopping! If you’re short on time, or for a last minute gift, you can order on the line’s website and have it shipped directly to your giftee!
