Rodin Olio Lip Balm Ring, $15.00

5. Rodin Olio Lip Balm Ring, $15.00

Hello 90’s! One thing I have learned whilst being a makeup artist, is that you can never have enough lip balm. Moisturized lips are so important before the application of lipstick or liners. What I love about this lip balm, aside from wearing it as a ring, is that it’s also all natural! Created with a blend of jasmine, orange flower oil, shea butter, beeswax and castor seed oil, the Rodin Olio lip balm has a beautiful floral scent, wrapped in the cutest of packages. This will make the perfect gift for that friend stuck in the 90’s.

They can be used as a stand-a-lone colour or layered for depth. The collection also includes three lip colours (maroon, red and nude) that are soft and lasting. Also included, is a fantastic sharpener for the eye pencils which catches all the sharpenings and makes absolutely no mess!

7. Rosebud Multi Use Oil, $28

7. Rosebud Multi Use Oil, $28

Nobody likes dry, flaky skin. It’s definitely not cool. Normally I would go the moisturizer route, but during the winter our skin really suffers, and that bit of extra moisture that an oil offers, can really up the anti for our skin. The Rosebud Multi Use Oil is an incredible floral-infused body oil, blended from sweet almond oils, apricots, fresh rose and peonies. It boasts the nurturing qualities of Vitamin E and leaves your skin feeling and smelling amazing. This would make a great stocking stuffer for the beauty lover on your list.
