Whether you’ve got kids of your own or you’re designated cool Aunty/ Uncle, you’ll win their hearts (and Christmas too –sorry Santa) with these kid-friendly beauty buys. With safe formulations that are still big on efficacy the tiny humans in your life can explore the land of beauty in a safe and fun way. Here are our picks of the best of the bunch.
Rock The Locks Shake and Shimmer Natural Glitter Hairspray, $12.95: Literally everything we wanted when we were kids, this pink and silver glitter spray is scented like sugar cookie, packed with essential oils and super fruit extract and best of all makes their locks sparkle like a Christmas bauble. Favourite person status guaranteed.
Piggy Paint Unicorn Scented Polish Gift Set, $29.95 and Nail Art Stickers in Christmas Cutie, $4.95: You’d be forgiven for wanting to keep this set yourself. The scented nail polish (in watermelon, banana, raspberry and grape) may smell – and look – like a whole lot of fun but they’re still water-based and non toxic for little fingers that like to go in mouths. And the nail art stickers bring on the festive fun while being so easy to apply even Grandma could do it.
Crazy Rumors Lip Balm in Banana Split, Choco Strawberry and Bubble Gum, $7.50: Did someone say stocking stuffer? Yep, that’s right these all-natural lip balms are an absolute bargain (what is under $10 these days?!) but will nourish and moisturise their lips while tasting delicious - and all without the sugar high.
Blossom Moisturising Lip Gloss Gift Set, $19.95: Teens, tweens and everything in between will love this “grown up” lip gloss set (raspberry, mango, strawberry) that looks luxe, tastes fruity and is infused with real dried flowers for the wow factor.
Ingredients Face Cleanser, $50: If they’re heading into teendom with skin that’s started to change, this is the ideal gift. Suitable from ages 6+, this face cleanser contains only eight plant-based ingredients with a mild yet effective formula that cleans without upsetting the delicate pH balance of the skin and also supports the skin microbiome.
Badger Unscented Face Oil, $29.95: Another great one for beginners, this unscented face oil soothes and moisturises even the most sensitive skin with its array of natural and organic ingredients including sunflower oil and calendula. Hypoallergenic and non-comedogenic, this means it won’t clog pores so no, it won’t cause breakouts, just glow.
