3 Natural / Organic Indie Beauty Brands To Gift this Christmas

by - 21 December

2016 is coming to a close and out come the gift guides from the interwebs. Of course this site's no different! For our first gift guide we'll be focusing on local indie beauty brands. More specifically the organic + natural kinds.

Here are 3 brands to check out for that organic/natural-loving friend/family. Because you're sick of them asking "All-natural ba to?", "Only organic products touch this skin".  :)

I have been lusting over their roll-on oil-based perfumes for the longest time. I've just been controlling myself really well since I still have a couple to go through in my stash.

These natural perfumes are oil-based and hand-crafted (as are most of their products) and their whole mantra is to transport you to where you want to be real or imagined.

Their scents have the nicest names and the most interesting combinations like Gypsy "for the romantic" - Is a blend of rose, vanilla and cedar with rose petals in a base of jojoba oil.

Most well-known for their salt-scrubs. This bath & body brand gifted me their Soothing Lavander & Vanilla Sea Salt Scrub as well as their newest product The Good Bar (A healing anti-oxidant rich lotion bar) in Lavender..

They're also lovingly made in small batches with no parabens, 100% all-natural and proudly pinoy!

I loved their Coffee + Dead Sea Salt Scrub as well as this lavander & Vanilla + Dead Sea Salt Scrub but I'm enjoying the Good Bar the most. The texture is like a balm that you have to scoop out and warm with your hands before applying— to melt it a bit. I use this in the office where it gets REALLY cold so my hands tend to dry out. This keeps it moisturized and smelling lovely. The chocomint variant sounds good too.

Everyone has been talking about these on IG a few months back. These lip & cheek stains are very well known because of their colours (deep reds, deep violets and cherry pinks) and their affordability. One roll-on stain costs about Php 110 - 150 a pop, depending on the reseller.

I have their tint in Bewitched. A really dark purple-red and I like that they don't have a strong scent to them and they last long on the cheeks.

Special Mention : 

This is more mainstream and more of a 'big-house'  compared to the rest of the brands mentioned above but their products are tried and true.

Organic. Natural. Non-allergenic. And their Goat's Milk & Oatmeal Body Scrub is really good (and always sold out on BeautyMNL!). It's very gentle so much so that I use it on my face. Plus it smells like breakfast. Win.

PS. It's Christmas in a few days. Who else needs to get them gifts done and done? :/
