Tata Harper Glow For It Kit ($60)

This sure-to-please trifecta includes three cult-classic favorites—Regenerating Cleanser, Reparative Moisturizer and a full-sized Resurfacing Mask—for dewy skin naturally, minus any harmful ingredients.

quip (Starting at $25)

I, too, thought toothbrushes were only an acceptable gift to receive from your mother—until I found quip, a sleek yet just-as-smart alternative to clunky electronic toothbrushes. It features a 30-second quadrant timer, dentist-approved bristles and an optional auto-refill plan so you’ll never forget to change your brush head again.

10 / 14

Lawless Beauty Soft Matte Liquid Lipstick ($25 each)

All pigment and no harsh additives is what put this trendy brand on the map (each tube is 100-percent natural) but its long-lasting, look-at-me shades that never dry skin out are what’s keeping it there. 

11 / 14

Panacea Skincare: The Aegis Kit ($92)

K-beauty merges with self-care and high-quality actives in this line that’s made for everyone (it’s also unisex) as the three-step process (cleanser, moisturizer and daily SPF) aims to create a foundation for a healthy complexion and mindset.

Kerstin Florian I Am Mindful Gift Set ($60)

For a gift that keeps on giving, opt for this calming, read-to-gift set that includes organic lavender bath and body oil, a natural blend of essential oils to ease headaches, stress and tension, a lavender eye pillow and positive affirmation cards that will last long past the holidays.

OUAI On My Ouai Kit ($25)

For the girl who always has somewhere to be, this sleek and simple set of hair must-haves (dry shampoo, texturizing and smoothing sprays and a nourishing treatment mask) is easy to tote and even easier to love. 

14 / 14

Orgaid Organic Sheet Masks ($6 each; $42 box set)

Aside from putting a wholesome spin on traditionally cheeky sheet-mask packaging, these organic sheet masks also focus on changing what’s inside the wrappers. Organic ingredients like aloe vera, hyaluronic acid, witch hazel, Greek yogurt and vitamin C replace high concentrations of parabens, alcohols and fragrances for an all-around more rewarding experience.
