Rahua Hair Detox & Renewal Treatment Kit

Rahua is renowned for its clean formulas—we’re talking organic, pure, plant-derived ingredients that are entirely vegan, non-toxic, and free of parabens, sulfates, and gluten. While the beauty junkie in your life may have already tried the cult-favorite shampoo and conditioner, they can step up their hair game entirely with the Hair Detox & Renewal Treatment, which removes environmental residue and harmful synthetic build-up from the scalp using detoxifying oils. It’s the perfect fresh start for someone who’s used to using lots of products that may be damaging.

The Detox Box Green Beauty Subscription

You may have heard about Birchbox (the OG subscription beauty box), but there are tons of other worthwhile subscription beauty gifts on the market that are a little more unique. We love the Detox Box, a monthly mailing that includes the best of green beauty, with at least $90 worth of products in each box. Even beauty gurus who seemingly know it all will discover cool new brands and products, all with clean ingredients and high performance.

Herbivore Botanicals Rose Hibiscus Face Mist

Sometimes, shopping beauty for others seems impossible: you don’t know if the foundation you pick out will be the right match, or if the person already owns the nail polish color you’d choose for them. One product you can’t go wrong with, though? The hydrating rose face mist from Herbivore Botanicals. It’s suitable for all skin shades and types (even super-sensitive skin, since it’s free of gluten and synthetic fragrance and created with pure plant actives), and it’s easy to use, no matter how experienced someone is with beauty. As an added bonus, the packaging is gorgeous, so it’ll sit pretty on any vanity.
