The Edit: Pro Holiday Picks
Having trouble finding a gift for that extra-particular someone? Surely they’ll trust an expert’s opinion. To help take the guesswork out, we’ve compiled a team of clean beauty pros to guide you with picks you’d find on their own wishlist.
“I love how nourished and plump my skin feels after just one use! The plant-based retinol alternatives are gentle enough to use day and night on my sensitive skin and give it a boost of skin-loving vegan peptides and antioxidants that both target and prevent signs of aging around the clock.”
–Miranda Kerr, Founder and CEO of Kora Organics
Miranda's Tip: “I like to combine them together AM and PM when I’m seeking a boost of firming protection or mixing and matching with [the] rest of the range, depending on the needs of my skin.”
“These two products should be staples in every skincare routine. The Jojoba Pearls Daily Hydra-Exfoliant is the fastest and easiest way to keep dead skin cells from building up—which is often the culprit behind dull skin that lacks radiance and experiences breakouts. I have sensitive skin but I can use this daily with no irritation, and the creamy ingredient base leaves my skin feeling soft and smooth.
Le Blue Balm offers soothing support to stressed skin with a multitude of reparative and restorative ingredients. In cold and dry months I use this on my face, hands, neck and décolleté. As a makeup artist, this balm has saved the day numerous times when client’s irritated, dry or flaky skin won’t respond to anything else.”

“This is an all-time must-have for me on set—whether I’m working for clients on the red carpet or on Broadway. It locks in moisture to help me craft the perfect silky, shiny blowout for all textures (yep, even the tightest coils) and works great for extensions!”
–Wil Ralston, Celebrity Hairstylist
“Paris at 7pm is the perfect holiday red for all skin tones. Its timeless color is elevated by the long-lasting finish and buttery soft feel—made with Mānuka honey and rosemary oils (hello, comfort!). I love to pat it onto the cheeks for a just-pinched flush, think French girl vibes. You’ll always find it in my kit for a classic party look!”
–Kyla Sallis, Pro Makeup Artist at The Detox Market
“This moisturizer is a perfectly lightweight option for nourishing all skin types. The texture leaves skin hydrated without leaving behind that heavy, greasy feel. I love using it day and night to rejuvenate skin and double up on its blend of peptide technologies and anti-aging ingredients”
