HBFIT Holiday Gift Guide: Beauty

We hope you guys enjoyed our health gift guide yesterday, and now we’re excited to share our beauty picks. With so many great products and services coming out all the time, it can be hard to navigate the beauty scene and find what works for you. Here’s what we found to be our favorite gift ideas for your friends who love beauty as much as we do!

Captain Blankenship Avocado & Peppermint Balm


This product is a hand, cuticle, and foot balm, and it’s made from only natural and organic ingredients. We love that the texture of the balm is rich and soft without making your skin feel greasy. It’s a life-saver for dry hands in the winter, and it smells like heaven. Plus, it’s made from ingredients like avocado oil, shea butter, and rosehip seed oil, which have tons of nutrients and vitamins that will nourish your skin all winter long.

Grown Alchemist Hand Care Twin Set


This set comes with a hand wash and hand cream, and we’re currently loving both of them. They make a perfect holiday gift because they smell so refreshing, make your hands feel super soft, and will look amazing next to the bathroom sink. These products are both made from nourishing botanical extracts which nourish your skin and make your hands feel smooth, clean, and refreshed.

LeahLani Skincare Mermaid Mask


If you love eating your superfoods during the day, you’ll love the magic they’ll have on your skin at bedtime. This mermaid mask is made from Hawaii, and is actually created from organic chlorella and spirulina. This special mask is perfect for all skin types and promises you purify, cleanse, and soften your skin.

Glossier Black Tie Set


Our love affair with Glossier products is no secret, so we couldn’t wait to share their new favorite limited edition makeup set with you guys. This set comes with five items that work together to create a chic “black tie” look. The set comes with an eyeliner, highlighter, clear lip gloss, pink polish, and a silky black ribbon to wear as a choker or hairband. Your friends will love this set for upcoming holiday parties!

Le Feu de L’eau Candles

Processed with VSCO with c2 preset

We can’t decide what we love more about these candles- their chic look or their addictive smells. Le Feu de L’eau uses natural oils and fragrances to create beautiful, rich candles that make for awesome holiday gifts. The exteriors of the candles are made from a high temperature wax that’s formed underwater, and the candles themselves are filled with soy wax. We love how unique these are.

Herbivore Pheonix Facial Oil


This facial oil will regenerate and rehydrate your skin, leaving it soft and silky. Herbivore’s products are all natural, and they use plant-based, organic, and food-grade ingredients. This specific oil is made from a blend of luxe botanical oils and skin cell renewing CoQ10, which has dramatic effects on your skin’s appearance. Trust us- you’ll want your own bottle after you see the effects it has on your friends.

TATA Harper Volumizing Lip & Cheek Tint


We love this lip and cheek tint in the “very vivacious” color. The pop of coral is unexpected for the winter, but offers a fun pop of bold color to play up simple black outfits. This company uses 100% natural, non-toxic ingredients, and take pride in running an environmentally sustainable business. We love that this tint can be worn as a sheer lipstick or a blush.

Kosas Cosmetics


Kosas is a beauty company that believes in making products for thoughtful and refined women. They combine their love for beauty, art, and science to bring out the natural beauty in women. Based in LA, Kosas makes all their lip colors by hand, creating the perfect balance of color, smoothness, and balanced hues. Their products will take you from work, to happy hour, to your holiday party, all without a second thought.

Rose du Jardin Lip Polish


This rose lip polish is the perfect present for anyone who wants to end dry lips during this damaging weather. The scent is a mix of organic rose otto, rose geranium, and peppermint, and after trying it once, you’ll be hooked. We love that it removes dry skin and smooth out your lips without the stickiness of other balms and creams.

Slip Silk Eye Mask


Nothing like a little something to help with your beauty sleep, right? This silk eye mask is so pretty and delicate, and makes a great gift for your girlfriends. Each mask is crafted from mulberry milk and is lightly cushioned to block out light while you sleep. You can even get a matching pillowcase!

Alder New York Matcha & Honey Face Mask


Matcha and honey sound like a delicious combo, and they’re not just for sipping in the cold weather. This face mask is made from the powder of matcha and honey, and you mix it together to create your own mask. Each ingredient has antibacterial effects on your skin, and the mask acts as a mild but effective skin cleanser.

IGK Mistress Hydrating Hair Balm


This hair balm will lengthen your hair and boost its hydration, while also detangling and smoothing out your edges. This hair balm is a perfect gift for any friends who are looking to make their hair stronger and shinier. We’re obsessed.

Silver Mirror Facial Bar


The HBFIT team has been buzzing about Silver Mirror Facial Bar lately, so we thought it would be a great addition to our gift guide this year. Do your friends a favor by booking them a facial with one of the talented professionals at Silver Mirror. They provide no-nonsense, results-driven facials by understanding your skin and customizing your facial for your specific needs. It’s a hidden gem!

Van Court Studio NYC Manicure & Pedicure


Every girl loves a great mani/ pedi combo, so why not get your girlfriends a luxury spa experience for the holidays? Van Court is different than other nail salons, because they go the extra mile to keep your health in mind. By using tankless pedicure bowls and sterilizing their tools in a medical grade autoclave, you can go to Van Court knowing you’re getting the cleanest, most natural nail salon experience.

Laboratory Perfumes


The fragrances made by Laboratory Perfumes are literally a perfect gift for anyone, especially since their products are gender-free. Their sprays and perfumes are made from natural oils, flowers, and herbs. Plus, their products are actually scientifically formulated to react to the wearer and evolve throughout the day, which makes them so much cooler than your regular perfume.

Goop Organic Pharmacy Skin Brush


If you haven’t bought a skin brush yet, now’s the time to get one (and some for your friends, too!) Brushing your skin helps exfoliate your skin while improving circulation and boosting your lymphatic system. This brush has natural, soft bristles that are designed to soften your skin, is extra important during this dry, cold weather.
