There are thousands of natural and sustainable beauty brands out there, so how do you know what to get the natural beauty-obsessed person in your life?
Being natural beauty-obsessed myself, I’ve gathered a list of 24 sustainable beauty gift ideas that I wouldn’t normally get myself, but would absolutely go crazy for if I got them as a gift.
Because natural beauty is so expensive, we tend to only get the essential products to complete our regimens. But there are lots of other pampering beauty products we wish we could get.
So why not make your loved one feel special this year by gifting one of these products.
P.S. Almost all of the products I included you can find on The Detox Market to make it easily accessible. I tried to keep my recommendations below $50 but a maximum of $100. I also looked out for gift-worthy packaging.

1. Face masks
100% Pure Green Tea Water Bomb Mask
This mask is deeply hydrating and has skin soothing ingredients like green tea concentrate. Perfect for someone whose skin is on the dry side.
The mask’s hydrogel material is made from aloe water and plant cellulose, a total bonus for the planet and your skin.
Herbivore Blue Tansy AHA + BHA Resurfacing Clarity Mask
This mask is great for smoothing the complexion and is ideal for acne-prone skin. Like a facial in a bottle.
It contains blue tansy, which is antibacterial and anti-inflammatory, which reduces acne. The white willow bark and fruit enzymes exfoliate the skin and decongest pores.
2. Face massagers
Odacité Crystal Contour Gua Sha Rose Quartz
Gua Sha is an ancient Chinese technique that uses stimulating massage to brighten up dull skin and smooth wrinkles. It helps to lift and revitalise the skin.
This is perfect for anyone who needs a facial pick-me-up. Odacité’s Crystal Contour is hand-carved and made with rose quartz, which is the crystal of unconditional love. It’s a great addition to any self-loving ritual.
Province Apothecary Dual Action Jade Roller
The secret weapon to get glowing, contoured skin. If your loved one has been looking for a better alternative to micro-needling, this is it.
The stone points made with high-quality Xiuyan Jade gently massages deep into the skin to stimulate its regenerative function without breaking the epidermis. It also has a smooth end to soothe skin after massaging.
Pai Skincare Rosehip BioRegenerate Oil
This is a game changer if your loved one has sensitive skin, blemishes, discolouration or scars. This oil has some amazing, organic ingredients containing antioxidants, omegas and vitamin E.
It works great to get supple, soft and glowing skin. It also absorbs quickly, making it ideal for the busy beauty lover. The packaging is not too shabby either.
Leahlani Skincare Happy Hour Balancing Serum
If your loved one suffers from redness and inflammation this serum is the perfect solution.
Just one pump of this serum’s calming blends of tansy, lavender, chamomile and rose geranium will have her skin looking dewy in no time. No wonder it’s called Happy Hour.
Wyld Skincare Konjac Sponge
Konjac sponges are great exfoliators and completely natural, so they won’t harm the planet or your skin. A great gift on its own or paired with something else.
Wyld Skincare has two types of Konjac sponges, a charcoal-infused sponge for normal and oily skin, and a french pink clay-infused sponge for dry skin. They work to exfoliate and nourish the skin at the same time.
5. For the lips
Henné Organics Lip Serum
This serum is the missing link to your loved one’s lip care routine. Especially if they suffer from dry lips. Everything about this serum just screams luxury, including its 24k gold plated rollerball.
It contains arctic cloudberry seed oil and lingonberry seed oil, along with oils like rosehip and camellia to make a potent serum that nourishes and softens the lips.
Henné Organics Lip Exfoliator
No lip care routine is complete without a lip scrub. This is a great gift to buy to treat your loved one to some quality care. Maybe even as a combo with the lip serum if you really want to splurge.
It contains vitamin E and other moisturizing oils to nourish the lips while gently exfoliating dead skin. The organic berry and vanilla flavours make it taste great too.
6. Scalp scrub
Goop G.Tox Himalayan Salt Scalp Scrub Shampoo
Scalp scrub isn’t really part of everyone’s hair care routine, but it should be. This scalp scrub would make such a unique gift, it would be hard to top (especially because it’s from Goop, super high quality).
This scrub is an all-in-one powerhouse. It exfoliates and detoxifies the scalp with the Himalayan salt, nourishes and purifies it with moringa and rosehip oil.
Not only that, it also cleans and refreshes the hair from product build-up and dirt, and it smells amazing.
Josh Rosebrook Lift Spray
If your loved one struggles with flat and thin hair, this is the gift that she needs.
Made with horsetail, sage, rosemary and peppermint to stimulate the hair follicles and yucca starch for an expanded look. This concentrated spray is perfect for that full, voluminous mane your loved one dreams about.
8. Hair masks
Rahua Omega 9 Hair Mask
Dry and dull hair can really drag your mood, so if your loved one’s hair needs some tlc, gifting this mask will win you some serious points in their book.
The mask contains Rahua oil, which is used by Amazonian women to get strong, glossy hair. Along with lavender oil, eucalyptus leaf oil and sunflower seed oil, this mask is the ultimate hydrator.
9. Shampoo bar
Odacité 552M Soap Free Shampoo Bar
Shampoo bars are an amazing alternative to liquid shampoos that pollute the earth with plastic bottles. But it’s hard to find a good bar that’s not too drying.
This is a great gift for someone who’s been looking for that perfect shampoo bar.
Odacité’s soap-free bar has a coconut oil-based lather that doesn’t strip the scalp. And its argan and castor oil nourishes the scalp and seals in moisture.
10. Sea salt spray
Captain Blankenship Golden Waves Sea Salt Shimmer Spray
I absolutely love the packaging of this spray. It’s the perfect gift for someone who loves beach waves, glitter and fun in the sun.
The sea algae and aloe vera in the spray nourish the hair while the Atlantic sea salt gives that added texture for soft waves. It also has Palmarosa and Rose Geranium essential oils that make it smell wonderful.
11. Dry brush
Goop G.Tox Ultimate Dry Brush
Dry brushing is essential for detoxifying and energising the skin. This is a great gift for someone who wants that outer glow all over.
Goop’s Dry Brush is made from FSC-certified wood and natural, biodegradable sisal fibres. Making it easy on the planet and perfect for beautiful skin.
Salt & Stone Soap Co.
If you ever thought that gifting soap is boring, think again. The Salt & Stone Soap Company makes their soaps in the shape of a pyramid.
Each one of their four soaps is adorned with different crystals. Their Himalayan Citrus and Black Lava soaps are gently exfoliating and rejuvenating while their Rose Quartz soap is rich in cleansing minerals.
13. Bath soaks
Indie Lee I-Recover Body Soak
This is a welcome gift for any stressed out, achy beauty lover. This body blend can be used either as a bath soak or a body scrub.
It contains Dead Sea and Himalayan salt combined with Arnica, essential oils and hydrating oils to smooth the skin and invigorate the senses. Perfect for relaxing after a hard day.
Bathorium Snooze Bomb
This floral bath bomb is the ultimate element to an amazing bath time experience.
Finely ground Hibiscus flowers in this bath bomb turn the tub a light violet colour. The essential oils relax the mind as the oils and butter nourish the skin. It’s a wonderful addition to any bath ritual.
14. Shower sheets
Yuni Beauty Instant Shower Sheets
You don’t see these every day, but they can actually make for quite a thoughtful gift. These plant-based, biodegradable shower sheets are perfect for the beauty lover whose always on the move.
Yuni’s large moist wipes get rid of dirt, odour and sweat quickly. It’s infused with neem leaf extract and peppermint essential oils to calm the skin, soothe inflammation and reduce bacteria.
15. Body scrubs
Shiva Rose Sea Siren Body Scrub
This scrub is what’s missing from your loved one’s body care routine. From the packaging to the ingredients, you can’t go wrong with this gift.
The wild-harvested blue-green algae is full of amazing properties that feed and nourish the skin. Paired with rich butters, oils and essential oils, it transforms the skin from dry to silky smooth.
16. Body oil
RMS Beauty Body Oil
Body oil can be used alone or in conjunction with moisturizer. If your loved one’s moisturizing routine needs an upgrade, this oil will do it.
This body oil’s ingredients list is quite sizeable. But with oils like tamanu, jojoba, chamomile and clary sage, and extracts like turmeric, jasmine and vanilla, it’s liquid luxury for your skin.
I don’t wear makeup, and if I do it’s because someone put it on me. But this is a list of makeup products I would buy my sister, who is makeup obsessed.
Kjaer Weis Lip Brush
One thing your loved one might not have is a lip brush that’s compactable. The Kjaer Weis lip brush is small enough to carry in your make-up bag for quick application on the go.
It’s also great to use when applying lip masks or scrubs. So it’s two gifts in one, total bonus.
If you know which sustainable brands your loved one uses, why not get them a refill of their favourite makeup products. It saves them the hassle and prevents pollution from containers.
The Detox Market has a lot of refills for specific brands, so you can check if they have the brand you’re looking for.
ILIA True Skin Radiant Priming Serum
Give your loved one’s skin a boost with this primer that doubles as a moisturizing serum.
This primer helps to protect skin from harmful environmental factors, tightens and firms skin, and improve the skin’s texture with ingredients like hibiscus extract and aloe.
