I don’t think I know of a single woman who wouldn’t adore a gift certificate for a facial as a holiday gift.

Any manner of spa service or beauty gift is always appreciated.

Beauty products and spa services are thoughtful gifts at any time of the year, including Valentine’s Day, birthdays, Mother’s Day and the holidays.

Another option to jazz up your gift giving options are products from the skin care line at Limoneira.

For those interested in the “locally grown” movement Limoneira is located next door to the Santa Clarita Valley in Santa Paula.

Limoneira was founded in 1893 in Ventura County.

The main business of the company is the production of lemons and avocados, but in recent years, the company has expanded to include natural lemon and avocado-based skin care products.

“Our skin care collection contains products that are lemon- and avocado-based, and they are natural and dermatologist-tested,” said John Chamberlain, Limoneira director of marketing. “Most contain a new avocado-based compound, discovered during ethno botanical research, which is a natural promoter of skin metabolism.”

Among the topical skin care Limoneira products available are: Avocado Honey Lip Balm ($4.50); Avocado Face and Body Bar ($7); Lemon Balm Hand Cleanser ($12); Lemon Avocado Body Butter  ($14); Lavender Avocado Facial Cleanser ($14); Avocado Mask ($16); Lemon Hand Lotion ($17) and Lemon Balm Moisturizer Organic Lotion ($22). 

Limoneira also offers gift baskets of healthy fresh nuts, lemons and avocados.

“Limoneira products are found in the world’s leading restaurants and grocery stores and we make our products available directly to consumers through our Orchard Fresh Gift Baskets,” Chamberlain said.

To pamper the ladies in your life, SCV spas offer a variety of facials, massages and other body beauty services. One of the most unique facial experiences in the SCV is the Euphoric Facial from Cari Karratti, licensed esthetician at Balance Point Spa.

This facial includes all the deep cleansing, and therapeutic benefits of a traditional facial combined with the stress-relief effects of massage. Prices are determined by length and type of facial.
