Welcome to the second instalment of my Christmas gift guide to ethical shopping. In today’s post, I bring you a selection of natural skincare gifts from the online shop LoveLula as selected by me and my fellow green beauty bloggers. Don’t forget that LoveLula is running a 15% BLACK FRIDAY discount right until 2nd December. Scroll down for more information on how to redeem it.

If you’re interested to learn a bit more about why it’s important to choose natural and organic skincare, you can check out my post Organic skincare and beauty – Why should I choose it?

So let’s kick off with the gift inspiration.

First up are these great gift choices from Evelyn from We Were Raised by Wolves. I’m a huge fan of Lyonsleaf’s Beauty Balm too and as far as I’m concerned, you can never have enough lip balms.

Antipodes Aura Manuka Honey Mask, £24.99

“This is a gorgeous treat that virtually all skin types can enjoy. It’s hydrating, balancing, soothing and helps to reduce blemishes thanks to its natural anti-bacterial properties. A fab all-rounder for your skincare stash.” BUY NOW >>>

Hurraw Chai Spice Lip Balm, £4.99

“A useful little stocking filler that will rescue dry and chapped lips this Winter! I’m a huge fan of the Hurraw Lip Balms and this Chai Spice flavour is deliciously festive.” BUY NOW >>>

Lyonsleaf Beauty Balm, £9.99

“I would love to find another pot of Lyonsleaf Beauty Balm under my tree this year. This all-natural miracle worker can be used as a cleanser, makeup remover and as an intensive moisturiser for dry skin – it’s amazing!” BUY NOW >>>


Renata from Green Life in Dublin has picked the following items, all of which sound so luxurious and nourishing for your skin. Antipodes’ honey mask also gets another vote – how interesting, right? I think I may need to add it to my own wish list too!

Esse Plus Ageless Serum, £147

“Probiotic skincare is on my radar and Esse products feature heavily on my Love Lula wishlist. As a girl of the wrong side of 30s (ahem ahem), I need this serum in my life! It has many wonderful ingredients and it promises to firm the skin, strengthen its barrier and add youthfulness – music to my ears!” BUY NOW >>>

Turbliss Bioactive Peat Toner (and mask), £16

“I am not sure how I feel about using peat on my skin, but these products are calling my name! I love the fact it is a one-ingredient product that is bioactive too – it sounds promising and I feel this would be good for my sensitive skin.” BUY NOW >>>

Antipodes Aura Manuka Honey Mask, £24.99

“This has been on my wishlist for quite some time, and I need to get in asap, one way or another! Manuka honey is just a wonderful all-round ingredient, and I just love it for so many reasons. It is amazing for your skin too, it is soothing and intensely hydrating. I don’t know where I’d be without my manuka masks, and I need to try Antipodes too. I have heard so many wonderful things about this mask!” BUY NOW >>>


Petra from Be Healthy Now is wishing for these three products, two of which I’ve already tried myself. The eye cream is really good and I’m currently testing RMS’ “un” cover up which is living up to its expectations so far.

Tabitha James Kraan 4-in-1 Organic Conditioner Golden Citrus, £23

“I have recently finished a small sample bottle of this product and I really like it. I use it as a leave-in treatment and it works so well on my hair – it’s so good for detangling but also for moisturising dry ends.” BUY NOW>>>

Laidbare Pack Your Bags eye cream, £34

“So many bloggers have said that this was a great product so I really want to give it a try. Sometimes I don’t get a good night’s sleep and I wake up with quite swollen eyes and looking pretty tired so I am hoping this product would do the trick!” BUY NOW

RMS Beauty “Un” Cover-Up, £34

“This is a very popular product amongst bloggers and green beauty fans and something that I would absolutely love to have. I get regular breakouts so this would be perfect for that.” BUY NOW >>>


Now it’s my turn to share my skincare wish list 🙂

RMS Beauty Signature Set – Mod Collection, £42

I’ve heard good things about these RMS Beauty sets from other bloggers so as I’m running out of a few makeup products, I’d love to give this set a go. There’s also a Pop Collection one, currently out of stock at LoveLula though, which may seem a bit more suitable to my skin tone so I may just wait for that to come back in stock. BUY NOW >>>

Skin & Tonic Gift Set, £39

This gift set contains mini sizes of Skin & Tonic’s key products so it’s perfect for trialling. I particularly like the sound of their steam clean and the mask. BUY NOW >>>

Isla Apothecary Neroli Body Oil, £32

If you’ve been reading my blog for a while now, you’ll know that I’m a huge fan of face oils. For moisturising my body’s skin, I tend to use shea butter or my own whipped body creams on a day to day basis, but i also enjoy a nice body oil. This one sounds like a perfect combo to apply to your tired skin after a long day at work and to relax while smelling in its gorgeous frankincense and patchouli fragrance. BUY NOW >>>
