We have a bit of everything you’ll need (including faux freckles and CBD!) to create the perfect beauty starter pack -- one that’ll help you look and feel your absolute best while sipping your Rose (social distance style) on your favorite beachside patio.

Your skin barrier is your first defense against environmental aggressors like UV rays, harsh weather, pollution, and dirt. When barriers weaken, this oil-based multi-correctional formula of mushroom ferments and 27 active botanicals are designed to protect, strengthen, and balance the moisture barrier in your skin. With a proprietary blend of botanicals and super bioactive metabolites extracted from reishi, shiitake, snow, and chaga mushroom ferment, the Super Bioactive Face Serum is a powerhouse of nutrients that repairs deep in the skin’s layers for naturally glowing skin!


Olyxir’s tea strips are refreshing, help prepare your skin and body from daily stressors, and are packaged in portable and reusable compact organizers for a waste-free experience. Equally delicious whether dissolved in hot or cold water, each strip is made from organically grown California olive leaves. Packed with rich vitamins, polyphenols, and adaptogens, and a whopping 26,250mcg of antioxidants (75% more than a carton of fresh blueberries), Olyxir’s tea strips provide anti-inflammatory, restorative, and preventative benefits that’ll have you feeling rejuvenated and ready to go.

Start the morning off right with this daily tincture jam-packed with adaptogens. Also known as "nature's stress shield," the brilliance of Prismatic’s Good Day formula is that it works immediately to address external stressors to help the body manage its response to stress and anxiety -- also serving as a reimagined multi-vitamin to help boost mood and energy levels, reducing your daily need for caffeine… because really, who wants coffee when it’s this hot out?

This highly moisturizing and nutrient-rich cream uses plant-based ingredients and highly concentrated herbs that soothes dryness and strengthens the skin’s barrier. Chock full of natural ingredients like Rosehip Oil, Shea Butter, and Argan Oil, it promises to improve the look of dark spots and uneven tone while nourishing the skin layer by layer with essential fatty acids that improve elasticity and support collagen production. Its nutrient-rich botanical formula leaves skin comfortable, soft, and naturally illuminated.

Every Native Atlas product is formulated to stimulate the senses and focus on the health of the skin.

Looking to nourish your skin and give it the glow it deserves? This plant based skincare line focuses on nurturing your skin while simultaneously supporting the environment with the brand’s sustainable practices. With scientific evidence suggesting that regenerative agriculture could potentially reverse climate change through soil carbon sequestration, AVEGAN BEAUTY made it its mission to do their part in restoring the planet while creating natural skincare at an affordable price-point. Organic aloe vera and apple cider vinegar balances the pH of the skin with this toner spray mixed with extracts of licorice, marshmallow, and red clover herbs. Spritz on day or night (and definitely before a s’more infused beach bonfire).

Specially designed for the sensitive skin around the eye area, this lightweight eye serum is made from Sacha Inchi Oil (a rich vegetable source of polyunsaturated fatty acids) and Bisabolol (a potent antioxidant that soothes irritated skin, restores suppleness, and protects skin against daily environmental stresses), combining harmoniously to treat fine lines and puffiness.

Pour a glass for this beauty-boosting marine collagen in liquid form that’s infused with essences of wild-berry hibiscus for a subtle and sweet taste. This drink tastes like summer in a bottle while providing beautifying benefits for healthy hair, strong nails, and glowing skin.

Do you spend every beach day minimizing your sun exposure with hats and sunscreen but still want that sun-kissed look? PHreckles is the answer you’ve been waiting for.

If fake lashes were your thing before COVID, fret no more as this lash serum is here to save the day (and your lashes). Simply rub it along your lash line every evening and you’ll wake up to long, strong, and luxurious looking lashes that will make falsies a permanent thing of the past. Made with ingredients like Sodium Hyaluronate, Biotin, and Pumpkin Seed Extract your lashes will be healthier than they’ve been in years… and the best part? They’ll be real.

This female founded, skin-safe, Japanese beauty brand combines best-in-class technology with a skincentricapproach to makeup and healthy skincare.

Formulated with Rose, Edelweiss Stem Cells, Red Algae and other luxe ingredients, this eye cream works to hydrate, tighten, and reduce the appearance of fine lines and puffiness.

Detox from all that summertime Rosé with CBD? Yes, please! This water-soluble CBD concentrate is made with Full Spectrum Hemp Extract and certified organic MCT Oil.
