All your favorite clean, green brands. All of them. We mean it. This is the only time of year when you can save on Tata Harper, Tower28, Kosas and Westman Atelier, and many more brands through the site.
As obsessive testers, we’ve rounded up all of our favorites so you don’t get overwhelmed. From tinted sunscreens to glossy but non-sticky highlighter creams and even “your skin but better” concealers, here’s a clear guide to the clean beauty store’s best products.
The Cut team has been raving about this all-in-one sunscreen serum since it launched earlier this year. Skin brightener over time while protecting skin from UV rays, leaving you with a dewy glow.
A favorite product from the Cut Shop team is this Kosas concealer. This creamy concealer melts into skin for a natural dewy finish and buildable coverage, and it includes moisturizing ingredients to brighten dry and dull skin. But don’t take it for granted – the best proof of how good this concealer is are the rave reviews about it from people I’ve recommended.
We love this lip balm that has all the shine without the stickiness. The semi-matte finish comes in seven shades, perfect for pairing with the Tower28’s multi-purpose primer.
Senior shopping editor Bianca Nieves recommends this blush. It’s good that you can sleep in it. Seriously, that’s the whole premise behind the blush created by Fiona Co Chan, founder of Youthforia. Just like with those color changing lipsticks, we love how this nourishing blush oil adjusts to your body’s pH to create a unique blush shade.
Another favorite from Nieves, this miracle oil lives up to its name. A multi-purpose lotion that adds the perfect amount of dewy under or over your foundation for a dewy glow or a fresh face, depending on your shade.
If you want a good lip gloss for your lips, consider young writer Asia Milia Ware’s favorites from Kosas. This set is not only a bargain but also the perfect combination of lingerie and nudes to wear alone or as layers over lipstick and primer.
If you tend to overdo your skincare routine and damage your skin barrier, this is the solution. This cleanser gently and effectively cleanses without stripping sensitive skin.
If you like cleansers, you’ll love moisturizers. Beauty director at big Maya Allen says this is one of her favorites. Fragrance-free and non-irritating moisturizer helps repair even the most damaged skin barrier.
Another favorite from Allen to add to your cart ASAP is this brow gel that nourishes your brows. and keep them in place. Get a plump, layered look with biodegradable botanical fibers and moisturizing ingredients including hyaluronic acid.
Check out another gentle cleaning option. Klur’s gel cleanser washes away dirt while leaving skin super soft and moisturized. While this is ideal for all skin types, including my combination skin, we find it really effective for sensitive skin.
This is one of my favorite eye creams because of it actually do. With a natural yellow tint, this moisturizer fades and brightens dark circles, while the hydrating formula cools to help fade the under-eye area.
The hype behind this body oil is well worth it. Osea’s best-selling products are good for all skin types to help firm, soften, and nourish skin.
This quick and gentle peel from Alpyn Beauty is another one of Ware’s favorites. In just five minutes, a blend of naturally derived acids and bamboo powder brightens and smooths skin for luminous results.
Another Cut lover. We love it so much we dedicated a post to this skin savior. The soothing spray is the all-in-one solution to a number of skin care problems from sunburn to eczema flare-ups and pimples. The well-known ingredient is hypochlorous acid, which occurs naturally in the body, soothing inflammation and helping with skin repair.
Pre-shampoo treatments can often be a chore, but this one is more of a treatment. With a mild vanilla fragrance and blend of oils, this hair and scalp mask helps soothe dry, congested burns, leaving hair healthier and softer for all hair types.
Nieves also considers this best-selling styling gel a favorite. This high-shine, high-hold gel uses pequi oil to keep the hold from sticking. It’s ideal for all hair types to define your curls or pull your hair back into a smooth ponytail.
The simplest way to deal with ingrown hairs and dry skin is this daily use treatment, which you can apply directly to the affected skin. A blend of oils, including jojoba and chamomile, helps soothe and soften skin.
If it seems like your scent never goes away, consider this moisturizing dry oil perfume. Apply a blend of apricot and grape seed oils to your acupuncture points and enjoy the lingering scent of orange blossom, vanilla wood and amber.
