Beauty trends come and go, and only a handful of products actually manage to achieve cult status these days. And so, we scouted the entire beauty sphere and nailed it down to these 4 under-the-radar cult beauty buys – all au naturel and good for you. From a truly natural hydrating face mist to a liquid elixir derived from rose extract, these products will give you long-lasting hydrating and healthy glow. Try them and let us know what you think.
Pure, organic and aromatic, this hydrating face mist is a coconut water-based product infused with hibiscus and rose flower. Herbivore Botanicals tells us that hibiscus flower is rich in malic and citric acid, which help with exfoliation and cell turnover – in other words, skin renewal. The rose extract doesn’t only make it smell heavenly but also aids with reducing redness and skin inflammation. We love that it is entirely created with pure plant actives as well.

With hints of vanilla and hibiscus, the elixir enhances the way you hydrate and enriches your skin’s health from within.
