Free People's killer new beauty section is officially live and has officially exceeded our highest expectations. Alongside virtually all of our indie standbys like Juice Beauty, RMS, The Beauty Chef, Moon Juice, Rahua, Rituel de Fille, Sun Potion, and One Love Organics, there are also a ton of lesser-known brands worth getting to know. And with everything from meditation mists to superfood powders to kale-based face washes to explore, consider every last one of your beauty and wellness needs met. Oh, and everything is all-natural and cruelty-free.
You can already shop all the goods on Free People's site, but stay tuned as the brand's brick-and-mortar stores start rolling out their own in-house beauty departments this fall. In fact, to get a little preview, we recently ventured out to FP's Studio City location to chat with Jessica Richards, the brand's head beauty buyer—as the founder and owner of Shen Beauty, one of NYC's original natural beauty destinations, she was an obvious fit for the role. Watch below as we talk about the wellness essentials she recommends shopping at Free People and keep scrolling to see 10 other beauty products that have already caught our eye.
