You don’t need to consider yourself a wellness guru to be someone who cares about the products that are going on your face every day. There’s a reason the clean beauty industry keeps gaining speed, and it’s because as time goes on and we become more informed about harmful and toxic ingredients, it becomes more and more clear how necessary natural products are.
It makes sense that if a product is intended to stay on your face all day, every day, that you’d want it to be made from ingredients that are as beneficial as possible — not ones that are harmful or toxic. Fortunately, as more women hop on the clean beauty bandwagon, more products are being released, showing us we don’t need to compromise product quality if we’re interested in buying clean. To prove the point, we’ve rounded up the best of the best clean beauty products at Sephora — many of which consistently make our lists of can’t-live-without products, regardless of them being clean or not. Start your clean beauty journey by trying one of these:
This product has made basically every one of our beauty round-ups for the past year, but it's for a damn good reason. My favorite part about this product is how multi-use it is; you can use it as a wash-off mask, an overnight mask, or just as an ultra-thick moisturizer. If you haven't tried it yet, at the very least pick up the mini size to see what the magic is all about.
This award-winning product comes at a slightly steep price point, but considering the fact that it literally is equivalent to a facial in a bottle every time you use it, it's completely worth investing in. It contains high amounts of AHAs and BHAs — so many that it isn't sold in many countries — and doesn't give dead skin cells a chance.
Whether or not you can pronounce "bakuchiol," there's no denying the up-and-coming ingredient's powerful effects. The 100 percent natural ingredient is an alternative to retinol, making it perfect for sensitive skin that's easily upset by retinol. It works to minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, pores, and dullness — it' a miracle in a bottle.
We all know that it's vital to wear SPF every single day, but it can be tricky to find one that's made of natural ingredients. This SPF 30 is the perfect daily sunscreen for underneath makeup, as it's physical components provide defense from the sun without the use of harsh chemicals.
This concealer is completely unique in that it's designed to be either a concealer or foundation depending on how you apply it. Use less under the eyes or on blemishes for undetectable coverage, or use it as a light foundation for skin-perfecting coverage.
Even the editors in our office who don't look for clean products are lovers of this blush duo. The matte and shimmer duo lets you customize the level of radiance you want depending on the day, and the colors are pigmented, long-lasting, and universally flattering.
All of my above statements remain true for this bad boy — but this time in a sun-kissed bronze shade. This has been my ride-or-die bronzer since the summer, and I find myself reaching for it almost every single day. It's the perfect just-got-out-of-the-sun shade without being too warm, and having both a matte and shimmery bronzer option on hand is a game changer.
