I started working in the beauty industry in LA in the early aughts. I worked with and for a bunch of truly great indie brands long before “indie beauty” was a buzzword. LA is a story telling town, and beauty is a story telling industry so it should come as no surprise that loads of incredible indie brands were born right here in my hometown.
I’ve got a massive soft spot in my heart for an indie brand to this day. There is something really special about a founder or founders who are deeply passionate about their mission and their products, which is why I fell in love with Six GLDN.
Founded by three dynamic women, Six GLDN (pronounced Six Golden) is named after that very special time of day when the sun is six degrees above the horizon and makes everything truly beautiful including you.
The tightly edited line features extra-gentle formulas crafted with the rich heritage of Korean herbal medicine and modern bio-actives that bring balance to all skin types with 100% vegan, clean formulas. Each product features their Glow Reactivating Complex ™, an exclusive botanical blend that visibly firms, tightens, smooths and reduces the look of lines and wrinkles using angelica root, licorice, ginseng, astragalus and polygonum multiflorum.
It’s their mission to spread love and protect the planet by striving to be zero waste. Products are refillable, recyclable, compostable, plastic free, and Six GLDN is 2023 Climate Neutral Certified.
I’ve been loving their Nourishing Face Oil since it launched. Let me be clear, I LOVE a face oil. Face oils are one of those truly essential items in any skin care or self care routine. You can use it to clean your face, as a moisturizer on wet skin or as the last step in your routine to lock in all of the other amazing ingredients you already applied. Always use a little too much and massage the excess into your hands and cuticles.
The Six GLDN oil is great because it’s relatively affordable at $78 and is also lightweight and absorbs fast making it ideal as a base for makeup. It’s also packed with powerful antioxidants to defend against blue light, UV rays and environmental damage.
