Hear us out; many of us have tried zillions of natural, vegan, good-for-us deodorants but found they failed under pressure. Our zealous beauty editors found one, Schmidt’s, that not only smells great, dries quickly but can stand up to gym sweat. What friend of yours isn’t going to want this for Xmas! (Note: The Spruce + Spice is a particularly good scent this time of year. $8.99.)
Perfect for almost any stocking, the Invisbobble ‘Time To Shine Collection’ is an hair accessory that doubles as a bracelet — and a traceless ponytail holder. This sparkly stocking stuffer never kinks or creases your hair so you can change your hairstyle in a flash.Available at Sephora for $7.95 for three hair rings. The ‘You’re Golden’ adds just the right amount of sparkle to our honey blonde mane.
For the boyfriend, hubby or male buddy, get them the Jack Black Turbo Body Bar soap on a rope, which smells fresh and still ‘manly.’ This energizing, deep-cleansing bar scrubs away dirt and exfoliates the body for clean, smooth, healthy skin.
Blue Lotus and Ginkgo Biloba help stimulate the senses, while the rich, luxurious lather nourishes and hydrates with Murumuru and Shea Butters. Natural Lava Rock gently polishes and exfoliates, leaving skin supple, smooth and clean. $15 at Jack Black.
Every year our Mom used to wrap up underwear and socks and call them ‘practical gifts’ but we always loved the Chapstick in our stocking. Now, instead of plain old Chapstick, you can stuff stockings with the glam ‘Limited Edition Holiday Collection Organic Smooth Sphere Lip Balms’ ($5.99.)
Organic eos lip balms are packed with antioxidant-rich vitamin E, soothing shea butter and jojoba oil to keep your lips moist, soft and sensationally smooth.
Available at Ulta Beauty.
This time of year PHILOSOPHY has tons of perfect stocking stuffers, from cute $8 beauty ornaments (like the Sugar Plum Fairy bubble bath ). They also go great on any tree. We’d love to see any of these in our stocking.
