"Clean beauty is at the forefront of our clients’ minds, so we pushed ourselves to ensure we were bringing forth products with ingredients that we—and our clients —could feel really good about using on the skin," Sephora Collection’s VP, Beth Hayes, says of the company's clean beauty initiative. All of the products meet Sephora's clean beauty standards, defined by formulas that are free of parabens, silicone, mineral oil, palm oil, methylisothiazolinone, ethylhexyl methoxycinnamate, allergens, and photosensitive ingredients. "Over 90% of our ingredients are natural in origin," Hayes adds.
If you’ve previously picked up Sephora’s in-house brand waterproof eye makeup remover, this item is simply a more green version of the classic product. The remover is made with cornflower floral water to easily wipe away any traces of makeup. And don’t worry if you have sensitive or dry skin, this lightweight remover is gentle on all skin types. “This product is ophthalmologist tested and suits sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers. It is also not tested on animals,” Hayes says.
If you’re concerned about dullness and uneven texture, Sephora’s new exfoliating scrub will help you say hello to brighter skin. “I’m excited to give our clients a great exfoliator that won’t break the bank, that they can use all year round to brighten their skin. I think our Bright Skin Exfoliating Scrub is going to be a big staple in our client’s skincare routine,” Hayes says. Volcanic sand and marula oil work together to get rid of your dead skin and reveal a smoother complexion. Use it twice a week and you're sure to notice a difference.
“With the hot weather going nowhere fast, this product is sure to be popular these upcoming months,” Hayes says. Formulated with natural hyaluronic acid and mattifying powder, this hydrating product will keep excess sebum at bay and keep your skin looking matte. The lightweight lotion, which is perfect for combination to oily skin, also doubles as a makeup primer. Who doesn’t love a two-for-one product?
Made with fruit acids and natural peptides, this rich night cream is designed to improve firmness and elasticity in your skin. Applying the cream every night will leave your skin feeling soft and nourished.
Whether you need to apply toner or wipe away a day’s worth of makeup, cotton pads are a must-have in every makeup kit. “Made with 100 percent organic cotton fibers and GOTS certified by Ecocert, these makeup remover pads help remove makeup without irritating the skin,” Hayes says. She also let us know that they are “extra-soft, lint-free, and feature a dense texture and square shape.”
