As an accredited beauty blogger for online natural beauty superstore Love Lula*, I try out a lot of their clean beauty products. This natural beauty gift guide is a collection of some of my favourite natural beauty must-haves. I think they’ll all make great gifts, and also give you some ideas for your own wish list!

What’s In My Natural Beauty Gift Guide?
There are present-worthy treats from Pacifica, PHB Ethical Beauty, Joik, Antipodes, Living Nature, Balm Balm, Oils of Heaven, Zoya and Walden.
I’ve hand-picked my favourite natural beauty gift ideas, and I have written in depth reviews for many of them. The first link is to the product page where you can buy them, the second, where available, is to my review. Happy browsing!
Natural Beauty Gift Guide: Mascara
In my opinion, this fabulous mascara from PHB Ethical Beauty should be in everyone’s beauty kit, whether they want to choose chemical-free beauty or not. You can see the before and after photos, and see exactly what makes it so good in my review. PHB is a British brand with great ethical and eco credentials. It comes in Black and Brown.
Natural Beauty Gift Guide: Nail Varnishes
Nail varnish by its very nature is not natural. But I have found three lower chemical brands I am happy to recommend. These three give beautiful colours and finishes, and last almost as well as conventional nail varnishes. They smell a lot better too!
On the left is Pacifica Rainbow Gloss 7 Free Top Coat. I found you can wear it over other shades (especially the copper one on the right) and it looks fantastic, giving a rainbow shimmer finish. You can see how it looks on its own too, on my review, and there are ten other shades available.
In the middle is Zoya Nail Polish, which comes in around 60 shades, plus top coats. Their Colour Lock System of base coat, top coat, dry fast drops and nail polish remover is also fantastic. You can see it in action here on my review.
Natural Beauty Gift Guide: Lipsticks
No natural beauty gift guide is complete without a lipstick (or three).
I also rate Antipodes and Living Nature lipsticks, which both hail from New Zealand.
I think this Antipodes Lipstick is gorgeous. You can see how this lipstick looks on my pale skin, and find out a bit more about it here. In a nutshell, it has a soft matte finish, yet feels moisturising, and comes in lots of shades.
This Living Nature Lipstick in Wild Fire has more of a rich, glossy finish. This one needs a lip liner to stop it bleeding as it is very moisturising. It looks much darker in the tube than it does on your lips, and is more of a statement lipstick, as you can see on my review.
If a more subtle look is more her thing, she’ll like the Pacifica Color Quench Lip Tint, which comes in five flattering shades. It’s a tinted lip balm that gives a lovely flush of colour and kiss of moisture.
Natural Beauty Gift Guide: The Ultimate Palette
A make-up palette is guaranteed to be a hit, as it brings out our inner child. It’s like receiving a lovely paint box, but for grown ups.
This beautiful Pacifica Solar Complete Color Mineral Palette has a flattering selection of colours for eyes, cheeks and lips. They are all wearable, with nothing too wacky, and most have a subtle shimmery finish. You can see more about this palette on this post, along with a video about how to apply them.
Natural Beauty Gift Guide: Perfume
These Pacifica Roll-On Perfumes are so handy to pop in your handbag, and are ideal for holidays as they are small enough for hand luggage. Available in nine fragrances, they just roll on, and last well for natural fragrances. I like to mix Waikiki Pikake and Indian Coconut Nectar together.
For more sophisticated, complex fragrances, you could try the Walden range, which has five natural perfumes.
This gift set has each of the five, which makes it easy to discover your favourite before buying the 15ml purse spray or 50ml bottle.
Natural Beauty Gift Guide: Skincare
There are lots of lovely skincare gift sets available at Love Lula, and some of my favourites are by Balm Balm and Oils of Heaven.
This Balm Balm Starter Kit is the perfect introduction to this 100% natural, 100% organic brand, with trial sizes of their Super Light Coconut Cleanser, Face Mask, Beauty Balm, Rose Floral Water and Rosehip Serum, plus an organic muslin cloth. This set is perfect for a weekend away!
Ooh! Oils of Heaven have a range of effective beauty oils, and this Ooh! gift set contains 5ml versions of Natural Cacay Anti-Aging Face Oil, Organic Argan Moisture Retention Face Oil, Organic Moringa Anti-Oxidant Face Oil, Organic Rosehip Cell-Regenerating Face Oil and Marula Natural Replenishing Face Oil.
Oils of Heaven strives to source their oils from small local suppliers in a fair manner, trying to help women to establish a livelihood for themselves.
Natural Beauty Gift Guide: Candle
OK so this is not really a beauty product, but I have recently become a convert to soy wax candles. I’ve included Joik’s extremely Christmasy Spiced Cranberry candle in my guide as it makes a lovely gift.
Soy wax candles are based on a natural, renewable material, rather than normal paraffin candles. They also burn for longer, and burn cleaner, and this one smells incredible. They have loads of other, less Christmassy fragrances too – I have Bamboo, which is a great one for all year round as it smells like a spa, and Masala Chai, which is sweet and festive, with the scent of cinnamon bark, cloves, ginger, cardamom and nutmeg.
The Love Lula Beauty Box: The Gift That Keeps On Giving
If you can’t decide, why not treat her to the Love Lula Beauty Box? For £13.95 a month recurring, she could receive up to £60 worth of surprise products a month. These are some of my favourite beauty boxes:
I think these boxes are great value, and it’s a lovely treat each month, plus a great way to discover new brands. There is also a 20% off voucher code on each brand in the box for a month, so once you find a new brand, you can buy more from the range. This is the latest one I reviewed and it was my favourite so far.
A Little About Love Lula’s Policies
Love Lula has strict policies on the products they sell. All products must be created using the highest possible percentage of high grade, ethically sourced natural and organic ingredients. They say:
“You won’t find any products in our collection which contain Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS), Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLES), Parabens or animal by-products. We only stock products made by companies who do not test their products or ingredients on animals, nor pay third parties to carry out animal testing for them.
The only non-vegan ingredients we permit are beeswax, propolis, honey, milk and lanolin (from sheep’s wool and which has been tested for toxic residues). All of these substances can be produced without harming the animal in any way.
Beyond this we seek out the most innovative companies and strive to support morally run and environmentally driven businesses.”
