Here we were just minding our own business, going about our days, while Anthropologie was secretly building the most legit beauty selection. Seriously, when did this happen? The fashion and decor retailer has quietly curated the coolest picks around—part indie beauty brands, part national best sellers, part K-beauty. There’s even a “Wellness” category highlighting clean beauty. Take a look at some of the products we’re adding to our cart.
Yo, Anthro, this is a super legit indie find. It’s incredibly moisturizing, thanks to potently hydrating olive-derived squalane oil, which not only is great for dry skin, but also improves the texture and tone of skin. It’s lightweight, absorbs into skin quickly, yet is great for even acneic skin, as it doesn’t clog pores. It’s also available for an incredibly reasonable price tag, too. #blessed
Darphin is a standard go-to brand for all the cool French girls with that je ne sais quoi. Since its founding in 1958, the brand has formulated all of its products with French botanicals harvested at their peak. This Hydraskin gel cream is one of their best sellers because it’s light as air, yet packs a heavy hydration punch.
Handmade in Australia, utilizing superfood ingredients found Down Under, each Red Earth product is incredibly unique and effective. This marine and collagen-enriched moisturizer slam dunks thirsty skin with a major dose of hydration, leaving you dewy and refreshed, thanks to an exotic mix of ingredients, like macadamia seed oil, Tasmanian sea kelp (huh?), and bladderwrack extract (uh, what?). And the packaging is always on point.
This spray is for those that want their hair to both look and smell like they’re on a tropical vacation (and who doesn’t want that?). The simple, beachy mix of aloe, seaweed, kelp, algae, and jojoba oil is enhanced with a sweet scent of orange blossoms and coconut. Hair is left shiny, soft, hydrated, and flyaway-free. It has an underground, cult-following for those in the know, but now you know (but how did you know, Anthro?).
Bee’s Wrap, $18
Alright, Anthro, seriously, how did you find this one? Bee’s Wrap is all the rage in the green industry because it’s basically the clean version of Ziploc and Saran Wrap. Made from simply beeswax, cotton, and tree resin, it’s the sustainable alternative to plastics. Simply wrap up your snack to go, the packaging will stick together, and then wash and dry it when you’re done (easy as that). It has a great origins story too, created in 2012 by a mother of three in Vermont.
Wait, how did you find out about the coolest essential oil brand around town, Anthro? Vitruvi is that indie brand making those really gorgeous handmade porcelain diffusers that are out of stock everywhere. (These ones here.) They also hand blend all their small batch essential oils, too; this one is made of super high-quality lavender and aids in sleeplessness.
The chicest probiotic on the market, The Nue Co. is known for its science-backed formulations, which are at the highest quality. In traditional supplements, up to 50 percent of ingredients are fillers, chemicals, and preservatives. But for The Nue Co., they remove every unnecessary component, so every ingredient is active and organic. This probiotic is skin-brightening, too, thanks to Vitamin C and E, which encourages cell renewal and your natural collagen production. Just add a teaspoon to any liquid, any time of the day.
