Not sure what to get your nature-loving, cruelty-free advocate of a friend this season? How about some of the best beauty products from Dermstore that appeals to her need to be green and clean?
Natural beauty products are having a moment—and rightly so! With wellness and wholesomeness on the minds of every smart, well-read skin care lover, there’s no wonder the industry had to innovate and present itself with a whole slew of naturally derived potions for your daily routines.
What makes a product fall under the natural skin care category? Natural products feature ingredients that are present in or produced by nature, not synthetically derived in labs. It also means that the product is minimally processed and free of any artificial ingredients, like dyes and fragrances, that could potentially irritate sensitive skin. Without further ado, here are the top recommended gift items in the natural category.
Drunk Elephant is one of the best-selling brands at Dermstore, and so naturally, it became obvious to approach this skin care line with an offer to make an exclusive gift set for us. And they surely delivered a winning trio aptly named the Skin of Dreams. Paraben-free, certified cruelty-free and toting a 5-star rating, this trio features the three most popular products from this rising brand.
The T.L.C. Framboos Glycolic Night Serum is a staple nighttime routine item but what makes this potent bottle so naturally wonderful is that it also blends raspberry extract with glycolic, lactic, tartaric, citric and salicylic acids. The Virgin Marula Luxury Facial Oil is a highly concentrated vitamin E serum rich in omegas 6 and 9 and features the main ingredient that gave this brand its namesake: marula oil, the elephants’ favorite “drink” to get tipsy to. Last but not least, the Lippe is a strong fighter of dry lips and UV rays and does the job mainly due to avocado, mongongo, cranberry and more marula oil.
Gorgeous, clean makeup – that’s what this all-organic beauty line promises to be. If that doesn’t woo you over enough, add the fact that this kit features all of Gwyneth Paltrow’s favorite makeup picks! As Juice Beauty’s creative director for its makeup line, Gwyneth made it a point to add all the essential makeup items in this limited-edition kit: Phyto-Pigments Mascara, Last Look Blush in Peony and—not one, but two—lip color options: Satin Lip Cream Merlot and Liquid Lip Gwyneth. It also comes with two shades of the Stem Cellular CC Cream. We bet this will be a popular gift to give since (as of now) it’s a $90 value at $40!
This is the brand that Kathy Lee Gifford gave an organic shout out on her TV show, which caused a huge uptick in our site traffic (thanks, Kathy!) Basically, we love this brand because unlike most other natural brands, this one is loved by women over 40 as much as younger women (just ask Kathy’s daughter who recommended it to her). Dermstore offers both the night and daytime kits at $250—which is quite a steal if you consider that this kit comes with full-sized products of this brand’s best-performing items.
We know every real, natural beauty enthusiast understands that beauty starts from within—that’s exactly what this Dermstore exclusive kit offers. Party Perfect Beauty deliver the precise amount of nutrients to help your body flush out toxins, restore balance and up your defense against stress and environmental damage, leaving you with clearer skin and shinier hair. What’s more, you’re also basically getting a free bottle by buying the kit (which is a $75 value!)
It’s one of the oldest organic skin care brand (established in 1958) so let that speak for itself. And the full-sized Bamboo Firming Fluid offered in this kit has been proven to be a classic essential in anti-aging serums for the natural category. We also love the Yam & Pumpkin Enzyme Peel, which offers a nice seasonal scent but really there isn’t much convincing to be done when it comes to Eminence: it’s just the go-to natural brand for anybody, new and old.
If we have to identify the most luxurious item on this natural gift guide, this would have to be it. Indulge in 10 of the brand’s most award-winning essential oils and fragrances with this therapeutic bath collection. If the gift you want to give this season is the gift of relaxation, de-stressing or support, you really can’t go wrong with a box of 10 most decadent oils.
