These new skin and hair products are proof that the natural beauty sector just keeps getting better.
Proof that the natural beauty sector just keeps getting better? This array of new launches, which are becoming fast favorites.
We’ve never been so impressed with the quality and effectiveness (not to mention the gorgeous packaging) of these plant-based beauty products. Here are eight of our favorites.
French Girl Organics Floral Toner ($18 at etsy.com/shop/FrenchGirlOrganics). Natural hydrosols have a tendency to smell earthy. While it’s not the end of the world, we prefer this Seattle-made, neroli-scented toning spray, which we could sniff all day. It works great as a toner and also doubles as a makeup-setting spray.
Lano Lanolips 101 Ointment ($19 at net-a-porter.com). The Australian cult favorite has finally made its way to the States. Formulated with pure lanolin, the multipurpose balm is especially soothing for chapped, dry lips.
Goop Enriching Face Oil ($110 at shop.goop.com). This radiance-boosting oil from Gwyneth Paltrow’s new collab with Juice Beauty has a delicate and lovely geranium/orange scent. The proof of how natural this formula is: You could actually eat it, if you wanted to.
Context Restorative Night Cream ($45 at urabanoutfitters.com). Since it launched last fall, Context has captured our attention for its display-worthy packaging and effective, botanical-infused formulas. Bonus: The entire collection is unisex.
Little Barn Apothecary Coconut + Cactus Hydrating Bath Milk ($34 at littlebarnapothecary.com). Launching this month, this bath powder is crafted with skin-softening pink clay, soothing aloe vera and hydrating coconut milk. And it has the most addictive, soft coconut scent. Keep this handy for your next sunburn, because it’s the perfect antidote.
Kopari Coconut Sheer Oil ($44 at koparibeauty.com). While growing up in Hawaii, Kopari co-founder Kiana Cabell relied on coconut oil for all manner of health and beauty needs. Thanks to her commitment to only sourcing the finest oils and using specific refinement techniques, the quality of her products can’t be beat. The terrific body oil sinks quickly and thoroughly into the skin with a dry finish.
Osmia Organics Nectar Vital Rose Drops ($98 at osmiaorganics.com). A skin boost and a mood boost all in one. You can either dab a few drops of this serum right onto your skin or mix it with moisturizer. Either way, you’re getting a sizeable dose of hydration and antioxidants, thanks to extracts of prickly pear, argan, safflower and pumpkin seed oils. Plus, the scent of rose has been shown be a mood enhancer.
Rahua Elixir Daily Hair Drops ($105 at rahua.com). In the long term, this omega-infused hair oil reverses damage and hydrates dry strands. But right now? It smoothes flyaways, softens frizz and infuses your mane with the intoxicating scents of palo santo and gardenia.
