Are you struggling to find presents for everyone on your list this holiday season? Then, look no further than our guide to Christmas gifts 2021. With sustainable self-care products that nourish our well-being on the top of most people’s lists this year, we have put together a selection of the perfect clean beauty presents to delight your loved ones with.
From sustainably sourced packaging and natural ingredients to skin-safe science and renewable energy, at Twelve Beauty, you will find plenty of inspiration for vegan stocking fillers or green beauty gifts. What’s more, they have even expanded their range of skincare gift sets just in time for the festive season. Now it is even easier to give the gift of healthy skin whilst also caring for the environment.
For those who love a home spa session: The Body Edit
Twelve Beauty’s newest box set is an exquisite combo of two of their latest releases that are fast becoming the brand’s new best-sellers: Antioxidant Burst Shower Gel (the sulphate-free botanical alternative to traditional shower gels) and Jojoba Quench Body Serum (a fast-absorbing, highly-nourishing body lotion).
These two powerhouses not only protect the skin’s ecosystem but also boost skin regeneration, improve elasticity and restore that healthy, all-over-body glow. Both are perfect for either reactive skin types, as they contain soothing ingredients, or dry/dehydrated skin due to their super hydrating bio-sugar content.
This sumptuous duo comes in at 66 euros/58 GBP/$80, which is better value than buying the products separately (just like with all their box sets).
For those who want to shine bright: The Vitality Booster
This glow-inducing beauty pack contains the brand’s three must-haves for naturally radiant, de-stressed skin: Clementine Cleansing Balm (100 ml), Ideal Brightening Corrective Serum (30 ml) and The London Mask (50 ml). Three skincare staples to see your skin through the party season.
Firstly, the rich Clementine Cleansing Balm not only gently deep-cleanses skin but its delightful citrus aroma is a real sunshine-enhancing mood booster. Next is Ideal Brightening Corrective Serum, a seemingly magical concoction that leaves skin radiant and plump. And last but not least, the much sought-after London Mask. Say hello to instantly revitalised skin.
Gift idea: Add to this beauty pack the Softest Muslin Cloth and the cleansing ritual will be complete. Made with organic cotton and bamboo, it is perfect for the most sensitive skin types and can be used with both Clementine Cleansing Balm and The London Mask. Furthermore, its packaging is also a work of art in itself, beautifully illustrated by the Alicante artist Ángel Baeza.
The perfect pack to care for blemish-prone skin: A New Horizon
This four-step gift set makes the perfect present for those with problematic skin suffering from uneven texture and blemishes.
This intelligent quartet proposes a double cleansing ritual starting with Clementine Cleansing Balm, to deep cleanse pores in a gentle, skin-friendly way. Once the balm has done its job, Purifying Cleansing Beauty Cream is up next. The formula’s high concentration of squalene renews and repairs the skin while eliminating any remaining impurities.
A light layer of Ideal Rebalancing Level Serum, containing hyaluronic acid and Epilobium extract, sees skin hydrated, sebum production controlled and pore-size reduced. Essential Bio-Technological Moisturiser completes the routine, leaving skin protected against external stressors and with a matte finish.
Only the best will do: The Moisture Marvel
This box set is undoubtedly one of the best value Christmas gifts as it contains four of the brand’s skincare superheroes: Clementine Cleansing Balm (100 ml), Ideal Moisture Level Serum (30ml), Nutritive Repair Emulsion (50 ml) and Intelligent Frontier Facial Oil (10 ml).
One of the standout remedies for dry, sensitive skin is Nutritive Repair Emulsion. This super cosseting formula strikes the perfect balance between moisturising agents (hyaluronic acid, panthenol and saccharide isomerate), and skin-nutrients (cupuaçu butter and spent grain wax, rich in linoleic acid, essential for the regeneration of the epidermal barrier).
However, it is the addition of the oh-so-precious Intelligent Frontier Facial Oil which banishes damaged skin for good. This exquisite lightweight oil regulates both oily skin (including acne), as well as dry or reactive skin, thanks to its biocompatible unsaponifiable vegetable oils. Its super complete formula also harnesses the power of vegan pollen (a known skin revitaliser rich in amino acids, enzymes, sugars, magnesium, zinc and vitamins) and Konjac root (maintains the water level in skin).
Award-winning Christmas gifts for 2021
Gifting award-winning beauty products is a sure-fire way of guaranteeing joy and glee this festive season. Take, for example, Rapid Eye Treatment, a firm favourite of the Beauty Shortlist Awards 2021. Created by beauty journalist and green and natural lifestyle advocate Fiona Klonarides, these independent awards are recognised worldwide for their ethical approach, impartiality and transparency.
The quick-acting Rapid Eye Treatment is also one of Twelve Beauty’s indisputable best-sellers. Thanks to its unique formula containing floral extracts and plant peptides, skin around the eyes is instantly smoothed and firmed. Moreover, it also works to minimise the appearance of under-eye bags, dark circles and signs of fatigue. It is also excellent for both male and female skin due to its lightness and rapid absorption.
No skincare guide to eco-conscious Christmas gifts would be complete with mentioning the coveted, all-natural roll-on lip oil, Hyaluroil Lip Treatment. Not only does its formula embody all that clean beauty stands for, but it is also the proud winner of three Beauty Shortlist Awards: Best lip serum (2021), best hydrating lip product (2021) and best beauty breakthrough (2021).
And it is all down to its innovative, manual production method that encapsulates short-chain hyaluronic acid (known to stimulate collagen production). This means it can be combined successfully with the oils in the formula (organic argan and sunflower oils, and cupuaçú butter), and therefore penetrate the skin more efficiently to improve lip health.
