Have you been waiting for a few days off this holiday for a much needed spa day? Good thing you can bring everything you need to your door this year. Let’s get real, there is absolutely no harm in taking a break and putting yourself first. If we’ve learned anything from this quarantine, it’s to listen to our bodies. That being said, self-care is one of our top giftables this holiday season simply because everyone deserves a day to unwind. These clean ingredient products put your skin and health first and yield real results (tried and tested everyone). So get to know some of our favs so when your bestie’s unboxing this from a distance, you can let them know why it’s so special.

Grace & Stella


It’s easy to think the charcoal peel-off mask in the drug store will make your blackheads disappear. But read the back of the label— maybe you’ll think twice. Grace & Stella use real ingredients in all of their facemasks and nourishing products. Each item is vegan and cruelty-free, and for an extended spa day treat, we recommend the DIY at-home wax kit.

It’s the cold-processed hair care that can replace your shelf of overpriced shampoos and conditioners. Act + Acre’s clean ingredient-based approach to hair was created by celebrity hair stylist Helen Reavey. The goal? Create sustainable hair products without chemicals that will leave hair feeling soft, bouncy, and healthy. Treat yourself to a botanical scalp detox followed by a nourishing wash and condition— and not just for your spa day, everyday after that too.

More Finds

Since the world never fails to throw curve balls our way, we wanted to equip you with a few more of our picks for a good at-home spa day. It never hurts to stock up on clean ingredients, especially when they come from Masami and Onekind. Then, get inspired by Common Ground’s commitment to reduce waste by creating a scrub from coffee waste. And guys, maybe you’ve been staring at your laptop way too long and started noticing your dark circles (or maybe we have too much time on our hands to scrutinize)— either way, Huron’s got you covered.
