Skin-friendly stocking stuffers

I don't know how this happened, but I am *done* with my Christmas shopping. Still looking for a few extra goodies? Treat the people you love to a gift that's both fun and practical. Here are a few skin-friendly favorites that are sure to please (cough cough, hint hint).

Coola Liplux SPF 30 Lip Balm
Coola is an EWG-approved sunscreen company that uses mostly organic ingredients in their products. Don't neglect your lips! They burn, too.

Juice Beauty CC Cream with SPF 30
This product came in my December Birchbox. It's like a BB cream--moisturizer, tint, sunscreen, etc. all in one--and full of skin-loving antioxidants.

Supergood City & Sand Travel Tote
This kit is so, so cute! It's loaded with four different types of sunscreens so that you can try multiple formulas from this brand. I've had this one on my wishlist for a while. Might have to treat myself!

Tea Forte Skin Smart Teas
If you are what you eat, then you are what you drink! I first discovered these teas at a salon last year. Swiss Apple is my favorite flavor. The antioxidants in these teas are essential for repairing skin damage. It doesn't hurt that they taste amazing and that the box is too dang cute.

Boots N7 Hand Cream with SPF 15
Sneak a little SPF into your daily hand cream to help ward off age spots later.

Josie Maran Argan Daily Moisturizer SPF 40
Argan oil is a beauty staple these days. This argan-infused moisturizer nourishes and protects skin. Bonus: it comes in a mini-size that's perfect for Christmas stockings.

Peace, love & Christmas cookies!


  1. Terrific ideas for some stocking fillers and skin-care HINT HINTS! Especially for us over here at this hottest time of year.
    The shopping centres here are manic with last minute shoppers. I was out and about yesterday in one of them, and being from the country was unsure what the rules were re walking about. Stay to left? stay up the centre? maybe to the right? Well, none of it worked, I was shoved and bumped and tossled, but noone got cross. The CHRISTmas spirit was alive and well. And there is something I have to investigate further - as I don't believe in Oz one can get sun protection creams any highter than 30. All of my umbrellas are UPF50+!

  2. PS: thanks Katie for your sweet words. So sorry that your friends have lost furry friends recently too. :(

  3. What do you think of the CC Cream? I kind of want to try one out, but the whole BB/CC Cream thing is so gimmicky. Not to mention that I need way more coverage than that.

    1. It has pretty light coverage compared to similar BB creams I've tried. I think of it more as a moisturizer, and then I layered mineral powder over it.

  4. I have been surfing online more than 2 hours today, yet
    I never found any interesting article like yours. It's pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all website owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet will be much more useful than ever before.
