Why are organic skin care items the perfect gift? Here are our top 5 reasons.

  1. Skin care is important for all ages and sexes so it’s a gift everyone can use and benefit from.
  2. Many people don’t use organic skin care items and should due to potential harsh chemicals and side effects found in other products so you can help the people you care about to be healthier and happier.

Are you sold yet? If so, here are our top picks for family and friends.


Men are actually super easy to shop for when it comes to organic skin care because many of them chose a product when they are young and stick with it for years. It has never occurred to them to seek out something better, let alone organic. A lot of men don’t use lotions or facial oils and they can have huge impact on their skin and hair. Have a man with a mustache or beard that scratches your skin? Try an organic facial beard oil. It will soften and condition his facial hair and make it less harsh on your skin. If your looking for options, I like this recommendation list form the strategist. One of the top mistakes men make is not to use lotion after shaving or washing. Well and good outlines their top 10 organic and natural choices here. Most men prefer fewer steps so if you can find a skin cream with sun protection that is helpful. If not, you may want to make a natural high SPF sunscreen part of the gift. Remember, you can pair an organic skin care item with the something else he’ll love like a baseball cap or some new sunglasses.


Since teen skin can be so different we sought out organic skincare options that address all skin types and needs. Encouraging tweens and teens to clean and nourish their skin properly is critical to healthy skin as they get older. Due to hormonal changes teens struggle with various skin conditions but by far the most common teen skin condition is acne followed by eczema & dermatitis. The good news is that acne can be treated. In severe cases you should work closely with a certified dermatologist. Teen Vogue does a nice job of outlining their top choices for treatment of acne. To be honest, there are whole companies offering a full line of organic skin and body options. If you have a teen that likes a certain brand, you may want to start by searching what they offer.


One of the best kept secrets for women are facial oils. Most women leave beauty oils out of their regime. A brightening facial oil is the perfect gift for women of all ages and a nighttime wrinkle fighting facial oil is a great gift for the evening. Brighten dark spots, fade blemishes, & moisturize dry skin with SHINE brightening face oil.  SHINE naturally fades dark spots & blemishes on the skin, for a more even skin tone. Vitamin C from pomegranate, arbutus from bearberry, glabridin from licorice fade blemish marks & brighten dark spots, while vitamin E rich argan & jojoba oils moisturize. Day or night, this oil blend is sure to please, with its light, silky texture, and soft jasmine fragrance. SHINE hydrates and nourishes while naturally diminishing the look of fine lines and wrinkles.

One of the top concerns for women are wrinkles. A natural remedy for reducing the appearance of fine lines & aging, REWIND helps skin maintain elasticity & moisture, while preventing future signs of aging with protective antioxidants. Artisan, seasonal beauty is more than just hype: it’s the purest form of skincare available. We base all of our formulations on the latest peer-reviewed & published research. REWIND is no exception. As soon as you open the bottle, you’ll catch a whiff of sage, flowers & maybe even cookies–that’s honeysuckle and lavender; no artificial anything here. Honeysuckle, extracted in organic squalane and jojoba oils, offers gentle chemical exfoliation via natural BHA salicylic acid, while gently assuaging inflammation through the same naturally occurring acid. Thanks to squalane, anti-oxidant flavanoids and saponins penetrate deep into the skin, for powerful anti-aging properties. Organic pomegranate seed oil offers additional skin-brightening properties through it’s high vitamin C content.                                                                   

SHINE & REWIND are 100% organic, vegan, cruelty-free, free of paraben, sulfates, soy, corn & gluten. Handmade in America in small batches.

Don’t see what you’re looking for? You can always make your own basket of selected items you know your friends and family will love. Whenever I discover a new product that I love I share it with friends and family since it can be challenging and expensive to find something that you really like. Tip: Try making the gift extra personalized by paring the perfect organic skincare gift with something small but use full like some warm snuggly socks, hair scrunchies or a silk pillowcase.

In summary, organic skin care can be the perfect gift for your friends and family.
