There is no better time than the holidays to shower our friends and loved ones with gifts that are special, different, and indulgent. For those who love beauty, skincare, and perfume, we have a few favorites that are sure to delight and make everyone feel luxurious.
For The Organic, Luxurious Skin Care Guru
MAHALO Skin Care, created by hand in Kauai, Hawaii, represents the very best when it comes to luxurious organic skin care. Mahalo, which means gratitude, esteem & respect, delivers exactly those principles through every ingredient that is lovingly placed in every product.
The company draws from Polynesian and eastern and western philosophies while combining them seamlessly with modern science. Ingredients such as murumuru butter, black cumin seed, turmeric, hibiscus, sea buckthorn, hemp seed and omega fatty acids envelope the skin, bringing out everyone’s healthy, natural glow.
We love The Bean Antioxidant Mask with cacao, vanilla and coffee. It literally wakes up your skin, leaving it regenerated. Give the whole collection to someone who knows luxury, organic skin care, and they will be amazed, impressed and singing the praises of MAHALO.
For Your Makeup-obsessed Friend Who Deserves Only the Best
Chantecaille’s Deluxe Brush Collection is the ideal companion to anyone’s make up routine. There are 5 vegan-friendly, synthetic fiber brushes which hold onto make up so evenly and seamlessly, that even the simple “no-makeup look” turns into a moment of luxury application.
The incredibly soft brushes come in a glamorous gold toned roll up case, making it perfect for traveling in style. A perfect accessory is their Les Paillettes Sequin Highlighter, which is as beautiful in the case as it is on your skin.
For Those Who Need to Fit in The Gym Anyway and Anywhere They Can
URSA MAJOR’s Exercise Freak Workout Essentials Kit prides itself in being an all natural skin care line and makes products that are great for all skin types and are easy to use. This kit is perfectly designed to be kept in your gym bag.

Rodin’s Lip Balm Ring is a great conversation piece and the ideal way to nourish, protect and beautify lips when you are on the go. The balm includes jasmine, neroli, castor and argan oils and leaves the perfect tint of healthy, vibrant lips…we are passing this one out to all our girlfriends.
