More and more, beauty brands are prioritizing natural ingredients, sustainable practices and vegan formulations — without compromising on efficacy. Here are some top product picks you’ll feel good about putting on your face, and not just because they’re lovely to use.
RMS Beauty Oil
Featuring jojoba, rosehip and wildcrafted buriti oils, plus nine adaptogenic herbs, this supercharged blend balances, nourishes and protects skin and absorbs quickly for a beautifully silky-soft feel.
My Clarins Re-Fresh Hydrating Beauty Mist
Few things provide a refreshing pick-me-up like a mid-afternoon mist. This deeply hydrating fruity-floral water refreshes skin with natural ingredients like coconut tree, alpenrose, fig tree and acerola fruit.
PÜR 4-in-1 Cloud Cream
This light-as-air moisturizer transforms from a gel to water texture on application, and the vegan formula primes the skin as well as providing profound hydration. Plus, green algae extract protects skin from visible blue light emitted from endless screen time.
Philosophy Nature In a Jar Gentle Detoxifying Cleanser with Agave
Formulated with 95.1% natural origin ingredients, this gentle, whipped cleanser includes an innovative ingredient called agave cryo extract. This process freezes the agave plant before extracting the plant’s active components, which provides potent antioxidant benefits.
Bare Minerals Skinlongevity Serum
This serum calls upon an ingredient called lifelong herb, part of the local diet in Okinawa, Japan, and known for having a higher vitamin and mineral content than kale or spinach. The vegan formula focuses on strengthening the skin barrier, because stronger skin is able to resist damage caused by environmental aggressors, free radicals and stress.
