1. Aether Beauty Amethyst Crystal Gemstone Palette
Old-school eye shadow can sometimes have a drying effect on your skin—but thanks to the addition of organic coconut and sea buckthorn oils, using this gem-toned palette is a smoothing, soothing experience. Bonus: The packaging itself is totally recyclable, and a percentage of all sales gets donated to the Coalition for Clean Air.
2. Saie Sunvisor
Finding the right sunscreen isn’t easy: After all, many tubes can easily clog pores and contain harmful endocrine disrupters like oxybenzone. Thankfully, this sheer formula is packed with all of the good stuff and none of the bad: Like a serum, moisturizer, and sunscreen combined, it includes licorice to ward off hyperpigmentation, hyaluronic acid for hydration, and soothing aloe vera.
3. Côte Nail Polish in “No. 18”
Ever paint your nails and end up with a migraine from the fumes? That’ll never be the case with this brand’s squeaky-clean polish, which comes free from the usual suspects such as formaldehyde and dibutyl phthalate. And with more than 120 colors available, you’re sure to pinpoint the perfect hue.
$18, Four Seasons Hotel One Dalton Street, Boston.
4. Kosas Revealer Concealer in “No. 08”
Loaded with ingredients such as caffeine and pink algae for a brightening effect, arnica and Vitamin B5 to soothe blemishes, and peptides and hyaluronic acid to plump and moisturize, this concealer pinch-hits as an eye cream and spot treatment as well. As if that wasn’t impressive enough, it also comes in 28 shades so every skin tone can find a match.
5. Follain Refillable Everything Soap in Lavender
Boston’s clean beauty set has long sworn by local favorite Follain’s “Everything Soap” for its gentle, waterways-friendly liquid formula, but the glass bottle proved to be a little tricky come bath time. This March, the popular lavender scent launches in a shower-friendly, refillable plastic bottle. It’s gentle enough for you, for the kids, even for the dog—and it smells great.
6. Odacité All-Embracing Serum
California-based Odacité imbues this serum with the power of crystals (there are tiny amethyst beads in each bottle) to “rid negative energy” and “instill inner peace,” but we think the two hero ingredients here speak for themselves: watermelon seed oil to combat signs of aging, as well as hibiscus-derived antioxidants for a chemical exfoliating effect.
$98, Megan Graham Beauty.
