Retrouvé’s Revitalizing Eye Concentrate is the secret weapon of countless celebrities, including Tracee Ellis Ross and Zoë Kravitz. And it’s not hard to see why. It’s clinically proven to reduce fine lines and wrinkles by as much as 55%, and it’s made using ethical and sustainable practices, including avocados grown in Malibu using permaculture farming. $415, from Retrouvé, 

Looking for an instant glow before you head down the aisle? Susanne Kaufmann’s Glow Mask will give you just that. After just 15 minutes, active herbal ingredients—including papaya powder, coffee and ginger—stimulate cells and collagen production to give you a just-from-the-spa radiance without having to leave your hotel room. $90, from Susanne Kaufmann,

Start your skin care routine with luxury by using Susanne Kaufmann’s Cleansing Milk. Ideal for sensitive skin—but also for anyone who wants an easy, soft feel after they wash their face—the cleanser contains chamomile, sage, rosehip oil and St. John’s wort flowers to achieve that silky texture. The product is vegan, like all Susanne Kaufmann products, and is made in accordance with the company’s sustainable-manufacturing practices. $92 for 250 ml, from Susanne Kaufmann, 

Everyone wants to look like they’ve spent the summer at the beach on their big day, but nobody wants to chance those risky UV rays. Enter HAN Skincare Cosmetics’ bronzer, formulated with rice powder, organic cocoa powder and cocoa butter for a rich, soft powder that lasts all day long. The bronzer is one of the first products released after HAN’s rollout of more sustainable packaging, which is made from 100% recycled paper and is suitable for curbside recycling. $16, from HAN Skincare Cosmetics, 

Hyaluronic acid has long been heralded as the crown jewel of hydration. Incorporate a few drops of Amala’s Skin Plumping Hyaluronic Serum into your routine every night or morning for a noticeable difference in elasticity and a reduction in dryness. The serum is vegan, with no synthetic fragrances, and contains natural ingredients that include red algae extract and resurrection plant. $188, from Amala, 

The Feelist’s Most Wanted Radiant Facial Oil is a cult favorite for a reason. It took two years to formulate the serum, which is approved for all skin types—even those with acne-prone skin who may be hesitant to try an oil. The serum is infused with 500 mg of cannabidiol (CBD) and features rosehip, jojoba and primrose oils to improve hydration and bring out your natural glow. $98, from The Feelist,
