Joanna Vargas, The Skincare Brand
Fellow Joanna Vargas acolytes, it’s officially time to rejoice: The queen of the naturopathic facial is debuting her very own line of skincare products tomorrow at www.joannavargas.com. Anyone who has had the good fortune of experiencing a treatment at the able hands of Vargas appreciates her uncanny ability to leave skin dewy and glowing without a hint of irritation or redness—a feat that just so happens to be the goal of her eponymous product range as well. The four-piece, entirely natural collection features what are, according to Vargas, the building blocks for a radiant complexion: a Vitamin C face wash, Daily and Rejuvenating Serums, and an Enzyme Mask—all of which contain galactoarabinan, an extract derived from the larch tree that speeds up cell turnover, traps moisture, addresses fine lines, and makes skin firmer. Vargas has tested them extensively on her very discerning clientele, which includes Julianne Moore, Rachel Weisz, and Revlon artistic director of makeup Gucci Westman, who was so impressed, she started stocking them in her own makeup kit. Since getting our own preview, we’ve become borderline obsessed with the Daily Serum, which is inspired by Vargas’ own love of juicing and is packed with leafy greens and an appealingly faint aroma of cucumber. Using it in between appointments feels akin to having your own Vargas facial at home.
