Lavender Protective Moisturizer SPF 17

US $58.00

This light hydrator is so easy to apply (we wondered whether it was true physical sunscreen, given its silky feel and the way it sinks effortlessly into skin) that it turns the daily chore of trying to blend in your stubborn sun protection into a genuine pleasure. Skin-soothing lavender plus turmeric root combine with micronized (not nano) zinc oxide in this nourishing, mattifying, and ultra-protective SPF moisturizer. It smells and feels fantastic; used daily, SPF is a powerful way to maintain smooth skin.

About the Brand

Walk into either of certified herbalist/masseuse/wellness practitioner/aromatherapist Barbara Close’s New York stores (there’s one in Chelsea and the OG one is in the Hamptons) and the first thing you’ll notice are the gorgeous, enormous glass dispensers filled with every sort of botanical tincture and oil. She’s been making her incredible tinctures, skin care, wellness teas, hair care, and oil blends for over 20 years, as well as conducting life-changing treatments from massages to energy-lifting aromatic facials; the brand now serves organic juices and treats. A major plus: The apothecary-chic packaging is made of recycled materials whenever possible—the tubes are made from 70% post-consumer recycled plastic, while the cartons are made entirely from post-consumer waste recycled fibers. The concoctions inside are pure and powerful: The SPF formulas are some of the best in clean beauty, the oil is exquisite, and the super-hydrating creams make a huge difference in skin.
