This infusion of 22 active organic botanicals mixed with powerful essential oils started as a secret whispered among makeup artists and grew into one of the most famous products in beauty. Phytonutrients and minerals help balance skin; phytoceramides, nourishing fatty acids, and antioxidants stimulate and brighten dull complexions; and the results, for every type of skin, from breakout-prone to super dry, are legendary. We’d bathe in it if we could—but this 50-milliliter bottle is a great start.

April Gargiulo’s foray into skin care started simply enough. She had been researching her favorite products and realized many of them were packed with ingredients that were potential health hazards (want to know more about clean beauty?). So the vintner—her family owns a winery in Napa Valley—started a side project: creating a supremely effective face oil with no harmful ingredients. It took two years to develop what would become an iconic product, a luscious face oil packed with 22 active botanicals that make a noticeable difference in your skin. (Gwyneth, makeup artists all over the world, and our beauty director, Jean Godfrey-June, are all huge fans.) In 2019, Gargiulo created a second product, a powerful treatment essence, which restores skin with water-soluble nutrients—the yin to the serum’s yang—and now, at last, there’s a third. It’s a foaming, pH-balancing cream cleanser that brightens and treats any skin type to the brand’s proprietary complex (it’s distilled from whole plants over a weeks-long process for max potency). Used together in a routine, the trio works to transform skin, no matter your skin type.
