Our editors’ favorite new natural beauty launches

Summer is winding down. (Sob!) And as it does, your skin’s probably in need of a little extra loving, what with all the sun, saltwater, and sangrias you may have enjoyed. (We’re right there with you.)

So our editors’ top picks for August are all about protecting skin while the sun’s still blazing (think, a light SPF with argan oil), and making sure it’s clean, calm, and ready for a new season—with the help of gentle cleansers, clarifying masks, and botanical-packed moisturizers.

Here are the handpicked products we’re totally loving for that tricky transition from high-summer to early fall. Missed last month’s beauty faves? See them all here. —Annie Atkinson


Get Started
Kypris-Body-ElixirKypris Body Elixir ($95)

Get ready to make space on your top shelf for this lightweight, deliciously-scented body oil. Kypris, which has gotten lots of praise for its uber hydrating prickly pear Beauty Elixirs, recently branched out with this antioxidant-rich body moisturizer. Infused with 12 natural botanicals—including prickly pear, sunflower, and moringa oils—it targets dryness, stressed skin, and redness. Basically, exactly what you need right now.


Caudalie-Vinoperfect-FluideCaudalie VINOPERFECT Radiance Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20 ($49)

Think of this oil-free tinted moisturizer as an all-in-one skincare treatment that covers imperfections, evens your complexion, and can help reduce dark spots. The presence of viniferin—extracted from grapevines (since Caudalie is all things grape)—helps combat acne and reduce late summer redness, which means this moisturizer doesn’t just camouflage imperfections; it helps prevent them.
