While we love to cover the beauty obsessions of others, we test tons of organic and all-natural products every month that we become obsessed with, too. Here’s what we’re loving right now from the latest products to hit the shelves. Use them to prep, treat, and soothe your skin all summer long, and get ready to glow. —Annie Atkinson, Melisse Gelula, Lisa Elaine Held, and Jamie McKillop
Tata Harper is like the Coco Chanel of the natural beauty world: an iconic tastemaker who’s constantly churning out classic products of the highest quality. And she’s done it again just in time for the lazy (and cutoff-and-bikini-heavy) days of summer. Her body balm provides crazy deep hydration, helps prevent and minimizes the appearance of stretch marks, and leaves your skin silky smooth. The magic is in the palm extract and red algae, which promote elasticity and plump the skin.
Tenoverten is New York City’s chic natural nail salon for the stylish set, and their five-free nail polish label is always on trend. Witness their new summer shades (named after two Financial District streets). The dusty mint green and the sheer taupe are like an Instagram filter for your nails—a little bit vintage, and making them look a whole lot better than when you started. And they’ll look pretty amazing with your safely sunkissed skin, just saying.
It can be hard to justify slapping on body oil in summer when you know you’re going to be slicked with sweat two-minutes into your subway commute. That’s why REN debuted this lightweight dry oil. It’s made with Moroccan argan oil and rosa damascena oil (hello heaven!) to leave your skin super hydrated and dewy. Bonus points for the spray bottle that makes adding a delicate summer glow as mess-free as can be.
Ridiculously popular makeup line RMS Beauty (of the game-changing Living Luminizer that everyone seems to have in their handbag or Beauty Obsession) is introducing—wait for it—makeup brushes to accompany their signature chic glass pots. The brushes are made of high-end, synthetic fibers, in varying length bristles that are tightly layered in a circular pattern. It’s meant to mimic the finger-tip precision and blending you usually get when applying the products. And we promise it won’t take any longer than applying your concealer or Lip2Cheek with your hands. Though it might be a tad tidier.
If you could bottle up a beach day, you’d walk away with this hand and body lotion made with all-star ingredient coconut oil, sea salt, and aloe. It’s super moisturizing for your chlorine stripped skin, yet light, and comes with an amazing salty, coconut aroma that’s fresh and summery.
The fanatically natural formulator created this gorgeous rosy cocktail of gentle, effective oils (camelina, hemp, coconut, and more) for eyes that might be seeing more puffiness and dark-circles than you’d like. An infusion of high-quality anti-inflammatory herbs, brightening bilberry, and more work super synergistically, says Rosebrook, to boost collagen and banish signs of sleepless nights. And the rollerball applicator really helps get puffy eyes looking better stat.
It doesn’t get much more pure than this hand cream from ultra-luxe brand Bottega Organica, featuring organic beeswax, extra-virgin olive oil, pure organic lavender, and English marigold from the olive-oil-obsessed company’s upstate farm. It’s a super rich treatment, so put it on before bed so you don’t get it all over your computer keyboard.
