I love receiving beauty gifts for Valentine’s Day. There’s just something that makes me smile when I open a box with a bottle of perfume, a new eye shadow palette, or a kit from my favorite make up brand. Finding eco-friendly beauty gifts can be a bit of a challenge so I thought I’d share a few of my favorites with you to get you started.

Eco-Friendly Beauty Gifts for Valentine’s Day
Eco-friendly means different things to different people. To some, it means recycled. To others it means homemade. Some people hear eco-friendly and think fair trade, organic or responsibly grown. I’ve come up with a variety of different ideas that I hope will appeal to everyone.
Organic or Natural Perfume
While not as common as designer perfumes, there are a number of organic or natural perfume options available. Just a few brands that come to mind are Pacifica and Abel Organics. If you’re crafty, you can make a blend of essential oils and package it in a small rollerball instead.
Scented Bath Salts
Not only are bath salts a great way to pamper yourself, they also help remove toxins from your body. Instead of buying bath salts that are scented with artificial fragrance oils and have added dyes, look for a bath salt that’s made with real salts that contain beneficial minerals. Or, try this homemade lip scrub instead.
I do love trying out new makeup products but it’s important to understand how these products are made. Look for ingredients that are cruelty-free, vegan and do not contain ingredients that contain petrochemicals. Look for a few of my favorite brands like Too Faced, Hard Candy, Vapour, and Korres.
Massage and a Candle
Beauty is only skin deep and relaxation goes a long way toward looking and feeling beautiful. Buy a responsibly made scented candle and give your loved one a relaxing massage. Play soft music in the background to set the mood. Look for beeswax candles for an eco-friendly option.
