Super Clean Solutions: Fall 2021
There’s no such thing as being too prepared for winter! Soak up self-care with a splash of summer when using these beauty picks that’ll leave your skin and hair hydrated and hopeful.

Khus & Khus BLEU Body Serum

This dreamy concoction relies on the riches of the botanical world coupled with the ayurvedic principle of bringing balance to the body. The light scent of blue tansy oil comes through upon application along with a perfectly balanced dose of hydration. Use on dry skin or as a lovely post-bath indulgence. AVAILABLE AT KHUS-KHUS.COM, $85

EVOLVh UltraRepair Reconstructing Masque

Hair in serious disrepair may find a new champion in this novel product. Heavy hitting amino and fatty acids help tame and repair super stressed tresses, leaving the hair moisturized without being heavy. The refreshing grapefruit aroma complements the uplifting, nurturing formula. AVAILABLE AT EVOLVH.COM, $48

MARA Algae Enzyme Cleansing Oil

This cleansing oil is outstanding for sensitive skin. Gentle cleansing is possible by way of natural enzymes found in fruit (pineapple, grapefruit, pumpkin and papaya) mixed with MARA’s signature algae blend which is chock-full of marine botanicals. The resulting oil is great for removing makeup and ideal for pre-makeup prep. AVAILABLE AT CREDOBEAUTY.COM, $58


This multi-purpose hydrator is suitable for use on the entire body and face. Prominently featuring hyaluronic acid—which binds to water to help the skin retain moisture—the formula is rich without being greasy and absorbs quickly, leaving a sweet and youthful scent. While several scent options are available including grapefruit, coconut and unscented, true vanilla lovers like me will go gooey over their indulgently concentrated vanilla concoction. AVAILABLE AT LUXEBEAUTY.COM, $39.95
