Martina’s Vegan Gift Ideas From iHerb

Strong with Plants paid the full price for these items. These Vegan Gift Ideas’ reviews are genuine. Not a sponsored post.

I have always wanted to put together the gifts that I got from iHerb that will cover sustainable, thoughtful, conscious gifts that will be perfect for every occasion and will serve as the perfect Vegan Gift ideas for you, but I wanted to try all of them first so I can make an honest, and raw review of the products.

Having put together these products will definitely help guide you toward finding the perfect gift for your vegan friends, family members, and loved ones!

All the photos you’ll see here are the actual products that I got and have used for shortly about a month.

I got these products from It’s a very diverse shop that sells a wide range of vegan products that you can try, and I also love that they list down all the ingredients of each product so you can be 100% sure that it’s vegan.

Vegan Gift Ideas

1.) Giovanni – Eco Chic Hair Care

This conditioner contains Vegetable Protein which I absolutely love. Because of the humid weather here in the Philippines, my hair gets really dry and frizzy. I have had dry and frizzy hair for quite a long time, and I couldn’t find the perfect shampoo or conditioner to use. To my surprise, upon a week of trying this conditioner, my hair became really soft and smooth. It’s 100% vegan and cruelty-free!

2.) Acure – Brightening Facial Scrub

This is such a nice exfoliating scrub. I use this three times per week and it has made quite an impact on my face. I have dry and acne-prone skin, and this product helped a lot in balancing the texture of my skin.

It’s my first time trying out a product that is made out of algae. So, it’s quite interesting. Just be sure to apply mildly on your face because the green sandy texture can be a little harsh on the skin.

3.) Dr Woods – Peppermint Castile Soap

Among all the products that I got from iHerb, this is one of my favourites. I love using this whenever I take a bath at night because it leaves such a refreshing and soothing feeling on my skin which helps in making me sleep soundly.
Not to mention, it also makes my skin feel really soft and smooth afterwards.

The product is just a little runny so be mindful to always close the lid tight. I love the minty smell you get, and the great amount of product for its low price. Definitely a must-use this vegan product!

4.) Energizer – Hair Follicle Stimulator

This product is also one of my favourites. My hair is getting thinner because of losing hair, but this product has made my hair thicker and fuller. It fully served its purpose. Just after a week of using this product daily, my hair has already improved.

The only problem I have with this product is, you really have to use it as often as you can to see the full effect. It takes a little effort, and I find it quite time-consuming. Sometimes I get quite busy and forget to apply it. But overall, it’s a good product and I’ll definitely purchase this again.

5.) Dr Pawpaw – Tinted Peach Lip and Cheek Balm

I use this almost every day after doing my morning skincare because it is very convenient to apply, and it leaves a pleasant but weak fragrance. My lips become soft, and it looks fuller after every use.

Since it’s a lip and cheek balm I have also tried using it on my cheeks, I love how it makes my cheeks look shiny and how it highlights my cheekbones. But if you’re not a fan of that sticky feeling on your face, I recommend that you don’t use it on your cheeks. The consistency of this product feels a little heavy on my face.


I really love iHerb’s products because as I’ve said, they offer a wide variety of skincare and many other vegan products and vegan gift ideas that you can try. These products are the ones that I’ve tried and liked therefore, I can definitely see myself purchasing them again.

Referral codes were used. All tested by myself. The products have been fully paid for. Not sponsored by iHerb or the manufacturers.
