What to buy the beauty lover? This is the person with a cupboard full of makeup, and maybe some more shoved in a few drawers. They care about great skin, healthy hair and putting their best foot forward. They always look polished so you’ll want to gift them something they can include in their beauty arsenal.

As well as being local, all of these products focus on natural ingredients that are good for the skin and body, producers and our environment.
Saje Natural Wellness
Saje Natural Wellness is a haven for all things beautiful and organic. Treat your beauty lover to some clean products that will help them scrub down and get rejuvenated. We’d start with one of their signature face products, like the Skin So Clean cleanser or Sweet Dreams intensive moisturizer. And if your beauty lover is a fan, you can head back to Saje to buy gifts for years to come shopping their skincare, body, home and essential oil collections.
For The Love Of Baths
For The Love Of Baths should be your go to for indulgent bath products, if it isn’t already, because all of their products are gluten free, paraben free, phthalate free, SLS free and only tested on friends and family (not animals). For The Love Of Baths is all about luxury and relaxation, without the added harmful chemicals. Surprise your favourite beauty lover with one of their adorable Cupcake Bath Bombs or Bubble Bath Blocks.
“Skincare with a conscience” is the motto at Fable Naturals where they create skin, body and lip products you can feel good about putting on your body. We’re loving the handmade lip balm that is fair trade, natural, eco-friendly and vegan. Even the lip balm tube is biodegradable! Check out the cool flavours like Creamsicle or Lemon Coconut.
NEU Skin Botanicals
We love NEU Skin Botanicals commitment to ensuring that not only are their products free from chemicals but all of their packaging is also recyclable and environmentally friendly. We’re really loving that NEU Skin is bringing the natural beauty trend into men’s products with their Gentleman’s Collection. This collection features a pre-shave face and body scrub as well as a post-shave beard creme.
Plenty + Spare
Working out of their Vancouver studio, Plenty + Spare hand makes high quality skin and body products using locally sourced natural ingredients. This winter, try out their limited edition Winter Solstice soap with scents of peppermint and sweet orange. Or try their all-natural dry shampoo to help your beauty lover keep their locks fresh as they run from one holiday party to the next.
