The holiday season is one of the hardest times to cut down on waste. All the packaging from online orders, the packaging of the gift itself and of course, wrapping paper. But it’s doable, and with our gift lists you can keep your footprint small while still getting the perfect present.
The beauty lover in your life, whether they’re a skincare junkie, makeup artist or just taking care of their body, will be happy to find one of these clean beauty, low waste and natural products in their (recyclable!) gift box this year. And all makeup shown works for all skintones.
Give a gift that’s good for them and the planet. We at No Kill Mag are slightly obsessed with this zero waste brand!
The bathroom seems to accumulate more single use plastic than any other room in the house! This hand wash and lotion provide great plastic-free alternatives to ease people into a lower waste lifestyle. The travel sized shampoo and conditioner are great for being on the road or giving Plaine Products a try for the first time. This set includes a 16oz hand wash and body lotion for the counter and TSA approved shampoo and conditioner travel size bottles in either a rosemary mint vanilla or citrus lavender scent. And more zero waste bathroom ideas here.
Intensely hydrating, skin-soothing facial mask. Hyaluronic acid delivers water to thirsty skin cells while Green Tea concentrate is a powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory. The mask material “hydrogel” is composed from 95% organic aloe water and 5% plant cellulose made to intensely hydrate. The longer you leave the mask on your skin, the thinner the hydrogel mask becomes because the water gets absorbed. The hydrogel assists in delivering active ingredients onto your skin. Perfect to restore skin after a night of festivities.
A signature collection of rms beauty essentials curated with bright colors and iconic finishing touches.
This is for the one who loves trying new products. RMS beauty is all about the glow from within, and doing it with organic ingredients.
Miniature collections are always perfect for the holidays- think of them as a sampler for the receiver. If they’re a fan of holistic therapies like aromatherapy, they’ll love trying out all 10 scents to find their favorite. What’s even better about this set is Aromatherapy Associates is a Certified B-Corp, so you can really feel at peace with this set.
An intensive face and body moisturizer. Eu’Genia designed this product to combine the beneficial qualities of raw shea butter with the ease of use of traditional body creams.
15% of profits return to their workers in the form of an education fund for their children
A moisturizing facial serum that gives you an instant glow while changing your skin’s texture with regular use. Always vegan and uni-versally-sexy, Deep Serum is great for all skin types, including sensitive, dry, acne-prone, oily, or combo.
Your resident makeup artist will love this finish powder trio. We love W3ll people for creating plant-powered products which last all day and are still healthy for your skin. With glowy shades for highlighter, blush or bronzer, these vibration powders are meant for all skin tones.
A limited-edition full-size Undaria seaweed-packed pair for firming hydration and a full-body glow.
A complete skincare ritual for your most transcendent skin. This six-piece collection contains all the elements to cleanse, tone, support, moisturize, protect, and restore your optimal skin barrier — with highly sensorial, cruelty-free, and vegan ingredients made in South Korea.
This cult-favorite formula features a blend of ethically and sustainably sourced, natural ingredients. This Ghanaian harvested Shea Butter is paired with cocoa and mango butters that aid in the formula’s rich and creamy texture that help to deeply nourish and condition the skin.
The proprietary blend of fruit derived oils leaves the skin feeling soft, silky + smooth all day and night. The result- a body butter that does the body and soul good + keeps the ash away! All are handcrafted in small batches and delivered to you in reusable glass jars.
Another great gift is this shadow palette from KVD Beauty. 12 high-pigment vegan eyeshadows in a limited-edition palette decked out in custom artwork by tattoo artist Miryam Lumpini. Never tested on animals, this palette is also fully recyclable – the insert goes into plastic recycling while the exterior is a solid cardboard so goes with paper.
Anyone in your life who is die-hard about their skincare routine will tell you it’s not just about face, but body, too. That’s why they’ll appreciate the gift of this Goop dry brush, made of FSC-certified wooden handle and natural, biodegradable sisal fibers. Package this up in some recycled or biodegradable packaging, and this all-natural gift is good to go.
Axiology Of the Earth Lip-to-Lid Trio is a versatile and eco-friendly product that can be used on the eyes, lips, and cheeks. We recommend it for its hint of shimmer or color, perfect warm blush tones, and nourishing balm-like texture.
Wanting to do their part to improve the health of the planet, Axiology was determined to keep litter off the streets of Bali and employed local women to gather and re-purpose trash – turning it into packaging for their own products.
Heads up: This zero waste product appears small because it’s tube and cap-free but it’s the standard lipstick size at .12 oz. They come wrapped in paper and rest in a recyclable carrying case that’s made from up-cycled materials.
What happens when you take the world’s best selling plastic-free hair ties and wrap them in soft-as-silk organic cotton? The world’s first 100% fair trade, zero waste Scrunchies – and a new favorite accessory!
Every detail has been considered in the design of these scrunchies – from how the materials are grown (using only textiles from the earth) to how they are made (using only fair trade labor) to how much scrunch (an art and a science) to how they pair with your wardrobe (teaser: every color will work). The biodegradable Scrunchies are oh-so-gentle on your hair yet strong enough to hold all day long, even during your Spin class

A 7-piece holiday kit filled with clean makeup favorites.
Okay, we were kind of on the fence about recommending a gift box subscription but this one is vegan, nontoxic, eco-friendly, organic and gives back to a charity –like our fave Farm Sanctuary.
