Beauty Best Bets: Clean Moisturizing Miracles

Keeping skin moist can be pretty challenging in cold weather, so we recommend this oil-based vegan cleanser: Botanical Republic. A women’s skincare brand based out of downtown LA, it’s a double cleansing duo that cleanses skin in two steps while retaining its moisture. First, use the Nourish Hydrating Cleansing Oil to remove all makeup from your eyes and face. Then dab a bit of the Revive Gentle Emollient Cleanser to get deeper into the epidermis and nourish it on the cellular level. Just apply a small amount evenly to your face and neck, morning or night. Rinse with water and pat dry. Your moistened skin will be clear and bright. Next, apply the Refreshing Toner before applying the Regenerate Reviving Serum , which further nourishes your skin with organic plant-based ingredients in an oil base. Based on the principle that less is more, this small collection is hand-made and uses seed oils, lavender, and bergamot to perfect your complexion.

Vitamin C is essential to renew your skin in the winter and protect it from oxidative stress. For cold weather, choose a moisturizer in an oily base, such as this luxurious vegan CLE Vitamin C Elixir! Unlike many Vitamin C lotions that feel sticky or drying, this blend is formulated with rosa canina oil, sweet almond oil, jojoba seed oil, and phytosqualane to reduce the appearance of fine lines and feed the skin, leaving it elastic and breathing. This 11% pure Vitamin C elixir works also as a serum and is rich in vitamin B6, antioxidants, amino acids, and ferulic acid to promote collagen production. Your skin will glow with perfect hydration pitch. Use with the CLE Multi Cream Moisturizer, a multifunctional cream infused with palo santo essential oil, hydrolyzed hyaluronic acid, and niacinamide to soothe dry skin. The super-unctuous cream leaves no greasy residue and has subtly intoxicating notes of cedar, frankincense, sweetgrass, lemon, and undertones of mint. Order it at


You’ll love how the Strange Bird Inner Clarity Cleanser makes your skin feel the moment it touches it. A creamy clay immediately adheres to your epidermis and rids it of a film of dirt, and without drying out your skin, leaving it baby-fresh, moist, and clear. It also has an amazing uplifting scent that dwells on you subtly for hours after use. Based on Chinese tradition and the power of flowers and gems to center our emotions — like amethyst, rose quartz and crab apple– this line uses extremely pure, USDA-certified-organic botanicals to bring your skin and your mind to a perfect stasis. You’ll want to make cleansing your skin a joyful ritual, especially after a stressful day. Follow up with the Strange Bird Inner Balance Serum and Inner Balance Moisturizer. Nab them at .
