A Polishing Mask

This 2 in 1 polishing scrub and mask is the perfect sidekick to your Simple Scrubby! The scrubby will help you exfoliate, but the polishing scrub takes it up a notch! This mask is designed to promote and even, smooth texture, and promote brightness. Its main ingredients are black currant extract to defend against visible signs of aging and to nourish the skin, and sugarcane to polish away dead skin cells. This face scrub smells AMAZING too so that’s a bonus! It is dermatologist-tested and gentle on all skin types. This polishing mask is $36.

Light Up Lip Gloss

Light up Lip Gloss is going to be your new go-to lip product! This is formulated with jojoba and avocado oils for maximum moisturizing. However that is not the best part! The best part is that this literally lights up! You can use this lip gloss in the dark! There is also a mirror on the side so that you don’t even have to leave your seat to touch up your lips. It comes in 8 different colors and are $21 each.

Nourishing Hand Cream

Every crocheter needs a moisturizing hand cream in their project bag, and every self care gift basket needs one too! This one is my favorite. It has a very light scent so even people who are sensitive to smells can enjoy it. It is fast-absorbing and non greasy. It is free from any nasty ingredients like artificial colors, parabens, and alcohol. These hand creams are $15 each.

Revitalizing Hair Mask

Maybe your gift basket recipient is a hair girlie? If so she needs the revitalizing hair mask! I use this once a week to keep my long hair strong and healthy. It helps repair damaged ends, lock in moisture for a shine, and protects from future damage. This product is $21.

Collagen Gummies

Speaking of hair, these collagen gummies will not only help your hair grow, but it also nourishes your skin for a healthy glow! We can use all the creams and anti-aging rubs we want, but if we aren’t healthy from the inside out, those creams and serums will only go so far. Support your beauty from the inside out with some of the only vegan gummy supplements on the market. These gummy vitamins are are $19.50.

Exfoliating Body Wash

To go right along with your simple scrubby you can include an exfoliating body wash for some extra scrub! One of my friends described this as smelling like “spa-grade MMM”! Combing the simple scrubby with this body wash takes both things to another level. This is also an organic product that is made with botanicals and free from bad ingredients like parabens, sulfates, and others. This body wash is $14.50.

Luxury Makeup Brush Set

Maybe you are looking for something high end and luxurious. Something that almost every gal needs are makeup and brushes. This luxury makeup brush set will last for a looong time. It comes with 6 different brushes for flawless application. This set retails for $76.
