10 Follain Employees Dish on Their Clean Beauty Long-Term Loves

Clean beauty favorites

When your workplace is a treasure trove of the best in clean beauty, it’s easy (and oh-so-tempting) to constantly swap out your products for the latest and greatest. But even among the biggest beauty junkies, there are some products that are simply irreplaceable. Here, 10 Follain employees reveal their longest lasting clean beauty crushes.

Tara, Founder and CEO

Long-term love: Tammy Fender’s Epi Peel
How long? Since I was testing products to bring into our first store (which opened July 2013). I think I started testing this product in 2011 or 2012.
Why I love it: It’s called a facial in a jar for a reason. This makes a huge impact on my skin—and in just in 5 to 10 minutes, even if I’m experiencing any kind of skin sensitivity. The clays and manual exfoliant provide a very deep clean and the oils nourish and help get my glow back.

Patrick, Director of Customer Retention

Long-term love: Ursa Major’s Stellar Shave Cream
How long?: 11 months (almost to our one year anniversary!)
Why I love it: First shave cream I’ve ever used that leaves no bumps and makes my skin feel hydrated. Also comes in a travel size so we never have to spend a day apart.

Lindsey, Dallas Store Educator

Long-term love: Tata Harper’s Resurfacing Mask
How long? 4 years
Why I love it: I love this mask because it does a fabulous job at gently exfoliating the skin, to reveal a fresh and bright complexion. I have extremely sensitive skin, and this mask does not irritate me in the slightest. On top of that, it has a wonderful scent. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who is looking to restore dull and sallow skin to be luminous and smooth.

Sarah, Director of Brand Marketing

Long-term love: RMS Beauty’s Living Luminizer
How long? 3 years
Why I love it: 1. It’s versatile: I use it as both a highlighter (cheek bones, brow bones, inner eye, cupid’s bow) and as an eye shadow 2. It’s quick, easy, and foolproof (I use my fingers, tap it on, and go) 3. It’s the only thing I use on days when I don’t wear makeup to give me a healthy glow.

Alana, Buyer

Long-term love: Pai’s Camellia & Rose Gentle Hydrating Cleanser
How long? 1 year
Why I love it: I’m always trying new products, especially cleansers, but I still love coming back to this one. It’s creamy, so my skin feels clean and hydrated after cleansing. I love using it in the winter when my skin needs some extra TLC.

Rachael, Graphic Designer

Long-term love: May Lindstrom’s The Problem Solver
How long? 8 months
Why I love it: I’ve loved this mask from day one because you feel it working hard the second it touches your skin. A true miracle worker and a treat to experience.

Chandler, West Village Store Educator

Long-term love: Meow Meow Tweet’s Baking Soda Free Deodorant Cream in Lavender
How long? Almost 4 years!
Why I love it: After shopping for the right deodorant for FOREVER, this one saved me! Sustainable packaging, no baking soda, and a gentle lavender scent that is so creamy—it immediately became my go-to.

Caroline, Email Specialist

Long-term love: OSEA’s Ocean Cleansing Milk
How long? 6 months
Why I love it: It successfully removes all my makeup but is also super gentle and calming. I look forward to using it at the end of the day!

Greg, VP of Retail

Long-term love: Ursa Major’s Stellar Shave Cream
How long? 8 months
Why I love it: Better than the toxic stuff, moisturizes and provides a really clean shave.  

Devan, Dallas Store Educator

Long-term love: Josh Rosebrook Hydrating Accelerator
How long? 1 year
Why I love it: It consists of vitamin-infused aloe water with fatty acids that deliver hydration, antioxidants, and nutrients to the skin. It’s anti-inflammatory properties help soothe and even my skin tone, while also allowing my skin to better receive the rest of my skincare routine. Hands down, this is the most hydrating mist I own, and it’s scent make it such an experience to use. I also keep a mini in my travel bag!
