Holiday Gift Guide: The 10 Best BIPOC-Founded Beauty Brands to Gift This Season
We can all agree that 2020 was a tough year, so now’s the perfect time to show your loved ones how much you appreciate them by giving them gifts related to self-care and pampering.
Also, now more than ever it’s important to support small businesses whose stores and business models have been changed because of COVID-19. Here are some one-of-a-kind gifts for beauty lovers from BIPOC-founded brands.
1. Bread Beauty Supply
Your hair should be treated with love and care whether if it’s curly, straight, wavy or you have braids. Bread Beauty Supply makes nourishing your hair easier than ever with products like hair-wash and hair-masks that promise amazing and visible results for any type of hair.
One of their most famous products is Hair Oil, a multipurpose hair oil that gives you smooth strands and healthy-looking hair.
2. Oui The People
Oui The People is the brand you need if you want to achieve a healthy-looking glow while supporting a brand that defies and challenges old beauty standards. You won’t find terms like “anti-aging” “perfect” and “flawless” in this brand’s messaging because it does not sell beauty at the expense of personal wellbeing.
Their products include body oils, bath soaks, and body sheet masks, as well as high-quality razors and shaving products. They also have sets with different products, according to your needs. Our favorite is the Counterculture Set since it includes all their bestsellers to achieve healthy and glowy skin.
3. Rosen Skincare
If you’re looking for high-quality skincare products at an affordable price, you definitely need to check out Rosen Skincare. This brand was created for people that tend to suffer from acne. Their products encourage customers to feel happy with their skin while their products work to improve their skin’s appearance.
Since everyone’s skin is different, they have a quiz for you to find out which of their products work best for you or for the person you want to gift. Also, to have variety you can opt for their holiday kits, which include three full-size products, and started shipping on 12/1. We recommend the Fade Routine kit, perfect for people that break out occasionally and want to calm their skin.
4. Alamar Cosmetics
This brand is perfect for your makeup lover friend! Alamar Cosmetics is a Latina-owned makeup brand that carries lipsticks, eyeshadow palettes, highlighters, bronzers, and blushes. The best part is the affordable price while making high-quality and highly-pigmented products.
We recommend their bundles which include makeup palettes and some brushes too. You can find the perfect shade for anyone with light, medium, or dark skin. Also, we recommend Spanglish Pressed Pigment palette, an eyeshadow set with eight tones to create the perfect holiday look.
5. Rizos Curls
Curly hair needs special care and Rizos Curls is here for it! This brand was created to encourage women to celebrate and embrace their curls, at the same time they get healthy and shiny hair.
You can get shampoo, conditioner, and hair treatments guaranteed to provide a good experience with curly hair. Take a look at their Instagram shop to find the perfect gift! We’re obsessed with the kit Curl Love is Self Love since it includes everything you need to take care of your curls, and some cute stickers too.
6. Reina Rebelde
Reina Rebelde is known for its bold lipstick shades, eyeshadow sets, and liners that make everyone feel like a badass and boost your confidence levels to 1000%.
The best thing about this brand is that you can buy their products online as well as try them in different stores, including Target and Walmart, so you can swatch them and see how they look and feel on your skin. We recommend the Best Selling Classics Bundle, so you can try the brand’s bestselling products as well as get a full makeup kit.
Thank God It’s Natural is a haircare brand developed with natural ingredients offering a wide range of products according to your hair needs. They also have a collection specifically created for men, so if you’re looking for a self-care gift for a friend, partner, or a male family member, you can take a look at their products.
One of our favorite kits it’s the Miracle RepairX set, which includes a mini version of all the products you need to deeply repair your hair.
If you love trying and recommending beauty brands, you’ll definitely have to include Briogeo to your list, a haircare brand inspired by New York City’s vibrant culture. Since diversity is one of their distinctive factors, they have products for different necessities, including volume, repair, and curls.
They’ve created holiday sets exclusively for this season, and besides getting high-quality products for your hair, you’re getting cute packaging making them the perfect holiday gift.
9. Hanahana Beauty
Soft and healthy-looking skin never gets old, and Hanahana Beauty knows this! An important part of their mission is to make women of color feel powerful and confident in their skin while offering natural and ethically made products.
Some of the products you can get are Shea Body Butters, Scrubs, and Lip Balms, all of them at an affordable price. Our favorite product is their Lemongrass Shea Body Butter, which smells delicious and gives you a relaxing feeling all over your body.
10. Beauty Bakerie
Beauty Bakerie is a fun beauty brand inspired by pastries and bakeries, so each one of their products has a fun and creative name related to it.
Their “essentials” collection include different sets with tools and products for the makeup lover (or baked goods-loving) friend.
