December marks a time in the calender to slow down and spend quality time with ourselves and loved ones, reflecting on the year and focusing on future intentions.
For many of us, this season also means gifting tokens of love and appreciation for those closest to us. With this in mind, we have put together a guide from the team at Glasshouse of products available from our shop. This time of year is particularly crucial for so many small business owners and creatives, and we are always mindful to show our support towards these businesses. Below are some of our favourite products that are a result of the hard work and creative dedication of the brands we love, many of which are small batch and independently owned, perfect for intentional gifting.
Olivia Crighton, Founder & Director
RMS Beauty Oil - Having tried many natural and organic skincare products over the years, I always come back to my trusted RMS beauty oil. A little bit goes a long way, you really only need a couple drops for your whole face and it is especially good for winter skin that may be in need of some extra nourishment!
Dylan Donnelly, Senior Colour Technician and Operations Manager
Our Projects 9pm Mood Oil - This is an amazing oil that I use all the time either in a bath, or a diffuser. I have trouble relaxing and getting to sleep at night, and this scent is perfectly formulated to put anyone at ease. It is designed to calm your busy mind from the stress of your day, and leave you relaxed and cleansed, resetting your mind and body. Perfect for those cosy, rainy winter nights. Mount Sapo All Over Oil - First I chose an oil for your mind, now one for your body! This amazing, multi-faceted oil truly does it all; face, body, bath, beard, cleansing and more (and the scent is beautiful) Mount Sapo’s All Over Oil is intended to put the user back in touch with their bodies and mind, allowing them to listen to their bodies for a daily realigning. This is great for dryer winter skin, and to get back in touch with yourself for the new year ahead.
Amelia Scott, Colour Technician
Guy Morgan Dagger Rose Facial Treatment Balm - Perfect for anyone with normal or dry skin to stay hydrated in the cold breezy weather. Great on the face and prevents chapped lips in the winter as well! Earl of East Shirin Yoku Bath Salts - Great for anyone who likes a relaxing bath after a cold Sunday walk in the winter. A thoughtful gift for busy loved ones.
Talia Cooper-Gray, Director
Rowse Tangerine Cleansing Balm - I love this cleanser so much! I use it both morning and evening. It has a beautiful tangerine scent and a luxurious jelly like texture. I sometimes leave it on for an extra few minutes for more of a mask. Cloud Cloth - The ideal partner to the cleansing balm, this cloth can be used with very warm water to exfoliate and remove make up. Not only is it a great gentle exfoliator it is also very relaxing ritual to finish off your evening.
Grace Keen, Creative Director
Sans Ceuticals Body Butter - Made for winter skin! This luxurious cream protects and strengthens the skin barrier and is also anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory. Good for full body use. Incausa Palo Santo Incense - Fills the space with positive energy, easing the mind and body; great for rituals and meditation. I also love the fact this is a non profit company, working to preserve indigenous arts and protect native communities.
Eleanor Whiting, Stylist
Sans Ceuticals Activator 7 Body, Hair and Face Oil - This makes such a great gift as you can use it in a variety of ways on both skin and hair, pre or post shower. Vitamin A and Omega 3, 6 and 9 help give skin a loving pick me up! La Eva Roseum Exfoliant and Bath Salts - Great gift for someone who needs to de-stress and indulge in a little bit of self care. Pink salts help to soften skin, and the rose geranium smell helps to relax and unwind.
Ashley Wadwell, Senior Stylist
Glasshouse Hair, Hand and Body Wash - This is a great gift to give because anyone can use it! It is also versatile so you can shampoo your hair with it, use as a body wash and also a hand wash. It also smells lovely! Rowse Winter Body Oil - A great body oil that anyone can benefit from, especially in winter months when the skin is super dry. This product leaves your skin feeling super moisturised and smelling great.
Oway Rebuilding Hair Mask - Ideal for teenagers whose hair might need an extra bit of TLC as they experiment and express themselves through their hair! This lovely rebuilding mask helps to keep the hair strong and healthy while trying out new styles. Harvest Black Cardamom Candle - To anyone who loves a house that smells like Christmas!
