Cruelty-Free Gift Guide for the Sensitive Soul
02 December 2018
Having sensitive skin / eyes / sense of smell can be a real pain and can make it hard to find gentle products that won't irritate. If you're giving to someone sensitive this festive season you have a lot of great options - we've scoured the Lumabelle collection to highlight a list of the most gentle products out there.
1. Fragrance free natural deodorant stick by Schmidt's, 12.90 € | Buy now
This natural deodorant harnesses the power of baking soda to neutralise body odour (and really works - just check out all the glowing reviews on the product page!). This fragrance-free edition does not contain any scent or essential oils, ideal for those with sensitive skin and noses. Also free of aluminium, propylene glycol, parabens, phthalates and other nasties found in most deodorants. With a creamy shea butter base, it's fast-absorbing, non-sticky and won’t leave stains.
2. Natural Nailpolish Remover by Fresh Therapies, 15,90 €| Buy nowuse code GIFTGUIDE for 10% off
A very useful gift for those who enjoy using nail polish but find the potent smell of ammonia in traditional nail polish removers a little heavy on the nose. The Fresh Therapies natural polish remover has a very gentle natural lime scent, and works extremely well. It's free of artificial acetones that strip the nails of their natural oils and can leave them feeling dry and brittle after removing your polish. This gentle formula is moisturising for your nails and cuticles, so you’ll actually be treating your nails rather than damaging them. The recipient won’t be able to go back to traditional nail polish removers ever again.
For those who are serious about finding a super creamy and moisturising lip balm without any flavour, scent or sweetener - we have not one, but two to choose from!
4. Banish Blemishes skincare kit by Laidbare, 12.90 €| Buy now
Laidbare skincare products are formulated with sensitive skin in mind. This handy skincare kit contains a pore-minimising mask and a spot-treatment cream, making it perfect for skin that is prone to breakouts and blemishes. It comes in a sweet little bag with a Christmas tag: perfect.
You don’t have to put up with watery, stinging eyes after wearing mascara. There’s a better way. Meet Stellar Gaze, a natural mineral mascara by Pacifica. It won’t irritate sensitive eyes, and doesn’t have that awful smell most mascaras have. The brush wand gives a nice thick coat to your lashes without clumping or flaking. Comes in stunning, sparkly box that makes it the ideal gift!
