I hate to say it, because I’ve been taught my entire life not to judge a book by its cover, but I’m totally a sucker for beauty products with good packaging. Yes, the ingredients are super important too, but one look at an Insta-worthy moisturizer and I’ll be going ga-ga to slather it on my skin.

This is precisely why I have instant heart eyes when I see clean brand Herbivore’s latest creation: Prism. Its chicness lies in its completely clear color (which gives it prism capabilities) and unicorn-friendly iridescent packaging. But it’s not just a pretty product—Prism Exfoliating Glow Potion ($62) is a multitasking powerhouse when it comes to beautifying your complexion.

In essence, it’s a serum—but it’s also definitely an exfoliant, due to natural fruit acids like bilberry lactic, sugar cane glycolic, orange peel citric, and apple malic acids. In serum land, it includes Aussie-native kakadu plum (which is rich in vitamin C) to even the skin tone, and rose water, aloe water, and hyaluronic acid to quench your skin’s thirst on a deep level.

When I get my hands on it, I notice it absorbs instantly—AKA my skin gulped it down like I do with coconut water after a late night. The next morning after using it (you’re supposed to use it at night as you would a serum), my complexion looked clearer and felt really soft.  The best part of it all? One dollar of every sale goes towards the Trans Women of Color Collective. It’s glow-inducing for a good cause.

Other badass beauty products include Essie’s Mercury in Retrograde nail colors and Drunk Elephant’s D-Bronzi serum
