"Clean Cult Classics"
Our ultimate clean beauty guide for 2018.
A Paradox 2018 comprehensive list of our favorite products that aren't just pushing the industry forward—But are starting an entirely new conversation.
Skip the heavy foundation and swap it for the Tint Skin Foundation by The Beautycounter. It has buildable coverage, a natural finish and a wide range of colors. It even has a bit of hyaluronic acid in it to fight wrinkles and reduce the appearance of lines. We bet your regular foundation doesn’t do that - try it out.
You’ve probably heard about RMS from your favorite green beauty YouTubers and bloggers. Their coconut oil based foundation and concealer is so light you can even sheer it out when using a face oil to create flawless looking skin. It also fills in pores without looking like makeup on your face - gotta love a “no makeup” look!
Meet one of your new holy grail foundations. The Minimalist Corrective Serum Foundation by Gressa is an oil-based serum, foundation and multivitamin for your face all in one. Did we mention Brydie loves it as a clean dupe for the Armani's Luminous Silk Foundation too?
The People Bio Brightener Stick by W3LL instantly brightens skin complexion, keeps you hydrated while giving you a natural, youthful glow. It's the perfect trick for every boss babe to look rested and radiant!
We LOVE this bronzer. And we know you will too. Not only is it matte and buildable, it contains a hint of porcelain flower extract - rich of antioxidants that help moisturize skin and leave it looking absolutely radiant.
The Bare Necessities Set 3 Palette by Silk Naturals is known to be an AMAZING dupe for the Naked Palette 3 by Urban Decay. Yet - being the clean version. Gotta love it
11 / RMS Lip2Cheek
If you’re on the hunt for a matte lipstick, Vapour is your best friend. Their Siren lipsticks are made for long-wear and come in more shades than any other eco-conscious makeup line.
MUA Katey Denno loves clean makeup as much as we do. Nobody's Baby is the perfect shade of pink to bring a little extra color to the lips. It’s sheer and hydrating enough to swap it as a blush too. Fun fact - ILIA is one of the first brands in the US to make luxury non-toxic lipstick.
Sometimes a girl just needs a dab of clear gloss to complete her makeup look. The NO. 1 Clear Balm by Olio E Osso is super clean, moisturizing and conditions your lips. You can even use it to tame flyaways or brows while on-the-go.
Traditional exfoliants can be harsh on skin - luckily this exfoliating lotion is anything but that. It glides on skin and removes dead skin without the burn. What's not to love?
This multi-use face mist is a must-have for your beauty cabinet. It's made of coconut water, hibiscus and rose and works perfectly as a setting spray or skin refresher when your skin is craving some TLC.
This is THE ultimate beauty secret to achieve a youthful glow. Fight wrinkles, tone and hydrate all in one bottle. It even won the best anti-aging eco beauty award by ELLE. Gotta love it!
Retinol is your skin’s best friend – it boots collagen production, minimizes fine lines and unclogs your pores. That’s why we love The Ordinary Retinol 0.5% in Squalane. Add it to your nighttime regimen and watch your skin transform – just don’t forget to wear sunscreen.
22 / Yuni Shower Sheets
Okay, we've all been guilty of sacrificing a long, warm shower just to get more sleep and make it to work on time. Luckily, Yuni is here to save the day with their shower sheets - it literally changed our lives. Did we mention it's free of parabens, sulfates, GMO's and synthetic fragrances?
Who says you can’t drink your way to clear skin? Mix the Inner Beauty Powder with water and taste the goodness of clean skin – and a sprinkle of berry. It promotes collagen synthesis and skin radiance. Drink up!
