4. True Botanicals Renew Nourishing Cleanser
Why we love it: True Botanicals’ gentle purifying cleanser leaves skin feeling fresh and clean without stripping it of its natural moisture. The cleanser is strong enough to slough away dead skin, purify, and tone—all while using antioxidants and moisturizers to repair and hydrate the skin.
How to use: Apply the nourishing cleanser on top of the pre-cleanse oil or directly onto wet skin. Then massage, rinse, and admire your dewy look.
When to use: Morning and night, or whenever you need a bit of a pick-me-up. Pair with a warm cup of coffee from your favorite roaster for a truly luxurious experience.
Key ingredients: Green and white tea, aloe vera, green tea seed oil
5. OSEA Undaria Argan Oil
Why we love it: OSEA’s luxurious, silky oil makes skin look instantly rejuvenated and radiant. The soothing blend of botanical oils is gentle enough for dry and sensitive skin, but it packs in performance by reducing redness and moisturizing for visibly plumper, more youthful-looking skin.
How to use: After cleansing, gently massage the oil onto the face and neck. It is most effective when used morning and night and when followed by a protection cream.
When to use: Morning and evening as part of your skincare routine. Add it to your at-home spa days, too, for an even more rejuvenating afternoon.
Key ingredients: Argan oil, chamomile oil, undaria pinnatifida extract, grapeseed oil
6. Juice Beauty Phyto-Pigments Ultra-Natural Mascara
Why we love it: This non-drying, volumizing formula leaves lashes with a feathery appearance and prevents them from clumping, smudging, and flaking. Juice Beauty’s organic makeup, including its mascara, is also formulated with vegan and cruelty-free ingredients—not with the harmful items typically found in cosmetics such as parabens, petroleum, propylene or butylene glycol, sodium lauryl sulfates, pesticides, phthalates, artificial dyes, and synthetic fragrances.
How to use: Use the wand to lift mascara up and out from the base of the lashes to the tips. Apply one coat for a natural boost, or add a second layer for a more dramatic, voluminous look. Allow the first coat to dry before adding a second.
*Pro tip: Avoid pumping any mascara wand; this can introduce air into the tube and allow bacteria to grow and can make mascara appear clumpy. Instead, try twisting the wand out of the tube and rolling the wand up and out along lashes for added curl and separation.
When to use: Layer on a couple of coats and don your formal attire before heading to a wedding, or opt for a single application for a day out with the girls.
Key ingredients: Organic aloe leaf juice, candelilla wax, organic carnauba wax
7. Kosås Weightless Lip Color in Phoenix
Why we love it: Kosås is one of the best makeup brands because it offers quality products that are as good to look at as they are for your skin. The Phoenix lipstick shade looks beautiful on every skin tone and is perfect for any season—making it one of the best makeup items you can purchase.
Along with providing ultra-hydrating, long-lasting lip color, the product’s warm tones and matte finish give new life to the classic red hue. This lipstick is extra noteworthy for being cruelty-free and devoid of gluten, eggs, nuts, soy, parabens, phthalates, mineral oil, propylene glycol, phenoxyethanol, and synthetic fragrances. Put it on your lips from morning to night, and use it as a makeshift blush when in a pinch.
How to use: Apply directly onto bare lips. Add a second layer for a bolder look, or blot with a tissue for a softer look.
When to use: Swipe it on before going on a road trip across the state, when heading out on a girls’ weekend trip, or as you get ready for your own backyard summer camp.
Key ingredients: Mango seed butter, shea butter, rosehip seed oil
