Silvery moonlight can create a surface luminosity, an incandescence, a glow on the skin like nothing else. And in the spirit of our celestial issue, we thought we’d share some heavenly balms and serums—with silky botanical oils like rosehip, avocado, coconut, and more—that come pretty close to the magic of a face bathed in moonlight. Here are some of our favorites.

Trilogy Make-Up Be Gone Cleansing Balm
A luscious blend of pure, nourishing plant oils—coconut, sunflower, and rosehip—cleans and hydrates the skin and guarantees a gorgeous glow.

Naturopathica Manuka Honey Cleansing Balm
Feed much-needed moisture into the skin with natural ingredients like manuka honey from New Zealand along with royal jelly peptides and probiotics. These will clean and strengthen the skin and protect it from a harsh environment.

Lo & Behold Naturals

Lo & Behold Naturals Hair & Body Oil
This all-purpose floral oil with rose, jasmine, bergamot, black pepper, and myrrh is pure magic and may well cast a spell on those who behold the wearer. Apply a few drops to the hair and skin and get ready to captivate.

Monastery Gold Botanical Healing Serum
Ingredients like rosehip, camellia, cranberry seed, avocado, and evening primrose bring the skin back to life, like moonlight or a starlit sky.

According to 8 Faces Beauty, “self-care is sacred,” and this balm does indeed elevate the simplest of beauty rituals—moisturizing the skin—to high art. With grapefruit, lavender, and geranium, the balm transforms from solid to liquid before it melts into the skin. Some jars come with a surprise: a healing citrine crystal to hold near.
