Erin's Faces Holiday Gift Guide 2015

"It's the most wonderful time of the year" - I LOVE the holidays you guys!!  I have always enjoyed taking pen to paper and writing up my Christmas Wish List (complete with a request for a pony for about 12 years running).  At this point in the game it's a short list (this calendar and this scarf) but I can officially tell you that I would be thrilled to get anything on this cruelty-free gift guide because I can tell you from personal experience, every single item is awesome (I'm totally biased but still) - here we go:

These are fantastic for teacher/nurse/postman/caregiver/client gifts, in bathrooms, on holiday tables - you name it.  They're a hand-poured soy/beeswax blend with cotton wicks and phthalate-free fragrance oils.  This size comes in a hexagon jelly jar and burns for 5+ hours.  Scents are
APPLEJACK CIDER - apples and citrus zest mulled in cinnamon and spice
BLUSHING GRAPEFRUIT - a true grapefruit - tart and bright with hints of jasmine and vanilla
FOREST CRUNCH -  freshly cut pine and evergreen
ORANGE CLOVE -  Valencia oranges, cloves, chili pepper, bergamot and cassis - a beautiful pomander
SUGAR & SNICKERDOODLE - it literally smells like cookies baking in the oven - vanilla, maple syrup and creamed butter with cane sugar and cinnamon

Lye-free and made with filtered rainwater and olive and coconut oils instead, these vegan soaps don't strip your skin, foam up beautifully, are colored with mineral pigments (not dye) and double as an awesome shave bar (seriously).  Scents are:
PEPPERMINT - exactly what it sounds like
LAVENDER - same story
LUMBERJACK - Spruce, Fir, Cedar with a hit of Cinnamon and Wheat Bran
SPICY COCOA BUTTER - Cocoa Butter, Cinnamon, Orange and Cocoa Powder

LIP BALM TRIOS - $10-13.50
Great for boys and girls these are a fabulous stocking stuffer as is or you can break them up and spread the love.  The USDA Certified Organic Lip Balms are avail in Coconut or Peppermint Trios ($10) or you can throw a Fair Trade Certified Tinted Lipbalm in Flushed with a pair of the Peppermint or Coconut and get some color in there ($13.50).

You should know I am obsessed with these and literally take one on every trip.  This vegan set comes with three 2 oz. scents in Grapefruit, Peppermint and Lavender.  They are made with essential oils, instead of synthetic fragrance, and are great for bathrooms, kitchens, bedroom linens, diaper changing bags/tables, keeping in your car, spraying stinky clothes, you name it - they make everything smell so much better!!  Again, great to give as a set or break up.

Same super yummy fragrances as the minis (see above) but bigger - 50+ hour burn time in the cutest mason jars with matte black tops - great to take a paint pen and write your holiday message on top or tie a ribbon on for easy gifting.  Also - these sell out literally everywhere I take them so there's that.

These are great for guys and girls too as all of the scents are vegan, unisex and smell SO GOOD -
PEPPERMINT & CREAM - Peppermint Sugar Body Scrub (full of yummy oils, leaves you feeling hydrated) and Shea Butter Body Balm (Shea Butter based thick emollient cream)
CHOCOLATE & CREAM - Chocolate Sugar Body Scrub (made with real chocolate and a hit of orange and oils) and Shea Butter Body Balm
PEPPERMINT & CHOCOLATE - Peppermint Sugar Body Scrub and Chocolate Sugar Body Scrub
LEMONGRASS & CREAM - Bamboo Lemongrass Body Scrub (non-oily, made with powdered bamboo powder) and Shea Butter Body Balm
You get 4 oz of the scrub and 4 oz of the balm in a cute little bag.

If you want a true indulgence pick up a full sizes (8 oz) of the
Peppermint Sugar Body Scrub, Chocolate Sugar Body Scrub, Bamboo Lemongrass Body Scrub or Shea Butter Body Balm
I promise you'll be glad you did :).
My best-selling shade, Enchanted, in my petrochemical-free Mineral Lipgloss formula paired with a mini (5 grams) of the gorgeous soft gold shimmer, Magic Dust, are put in a happy little gold cosmetic bag for the perfect makeup set.

Most travel brush sets stink - it's so disappointing because the holidays come and you think you're getting a good deal but then they fall apart and you're back to square one.  Not so with this set!  They are the softest synthetic vegan Taklon and are about as good as it gets for travel situations.  You get a Powder, Blush, 2 Eyeshadows, Eyeliner/Brow, Concealer/Lip and Brow/Mascara Spoolie in a little "to-go" bag with a zipper compartment.
If you're buying fancy makeup and applying it with the Clinique Gift-with-Purchase brush set you got in high school 20 years ago (or q-tips or your fingers or those little sponge tip applicators) you are not getting the best performance possible out of your cosmetics.  This vegan set comes in a linen colored brush roll with a Powder, Blush, Foundation/Concealer, 2 Eyeshadows and an Eyeliner Brush.
