Beauty Gifts Under $50 (All Genders!)

In this Explore Portland segment I'm talking about beauty & skincare! Specifically, products under $50 that can be found downtown Portland! I researched these products for a segment on one of our local news stations, KGW, and I loved 'em so much I wanted to share the finds with all of you!

Olio E Osso Balm Sticks, $28  Alder & Co
A balm for lips & cheeks! Great for on-the-go hydration and color. Provides a pretty flush to your lips. This brand is based in Portland, OR. and the ingredients are locally sourced from pure, natural, and minimally processed ingredients.

Angelina Bulgarian Rose Hydrosol, $28.95  Alder & Co
Made in Bend, OR. This facial mist is distilled from hundreds of fresh rose petals (sounds divine, ah!). It also contains brightening vitamin C. You can use it as a toner before skincare, or just as a refreshing moisturizer. And as you'd imagine, it smells heavenly.

Corona Del Mar Dead Sea Salt Beach hair spray, $12  Tender Loving Empire
Made with dead sea salt which is rich in beneficial minerals, great for hair and skin. Formulated with a small amount of argan oil to condition hair. Sourced with all-natural essential oils and resins.

Spela Matee Liquid lipsticks, $22.50  Tender Loving Empire
Very pigmented, long wearing, and comfortable on the lips. Spela carries a variety of beautifully wearable colors. They're also based in Portland, OR! All their products are vegan, cruelty-free, made in the US, and non-toxic.
West Third Brand fragrances, $38  Boys Fort
This brand makes a variety of awesome unisex scents, of which a couple I wear on a daily basis. It's a great price for the quantity you get per bottle, and one lasts quite awhile.

Bichotan Charcoal Body Scrub Towel, $19  Spruce Apothecary
This towel has ultra-fine powder of activated charcoal blended into its fibers. Activated charcoal naturally helps draw out oils and dirt. Great present for someone that's hard to shop for. Because who doesn't need a little exfoliation every now and again?

Bichotan Charcoal Toothbrush, $7.50  Spruce Apothecary
Similar to the above, it has activated charcoal in every bristle which naturally deodorizes, prevents bad breath, and helps remove plaque. Great stocking-stuffer and they come in four stylish colors.

Edwin Jagger Double Edge Safety Razor, $50  Spruce Apothecary
Each razor is handmade in Sheffield, England. This is a timeless & beautiful gift that will last generations. This razor and Proraso shave cream ($12) is a great gift under $100.

Bearded Oregon beard oils, $20  Boys Fort
Locally made in Salem, OR. Their oils are infused with local Oregon ingredients.

Duke Cannon soaps, $10  Boys Fort
Great value for a great product. These big blocks of soaps come in a variety of refreshing scents. It's formulated with pumice to get the dirt off! Best of all, a portion of proceeds goes directly to US veteran causes.
