Does it sound like the stars are aligned for you? Keep reading for your 2023 facial forecast.
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
Born leaders, ambitious Aries seek challenges and works hard to make sure they always come out on top. But with all that ambition comes restlessness, which means Aries are prone to switching up their skincare routine before figuring out whether something works. This can lead to sensitivity, dryness and irritation.
Aries’ Hero Product: Squalane + Probiotic Gel Moisturizer
Our lightweight gel moisturizer soothes and hydrates with our blend of probiotics, red seaweed and sugarcane-derived squalane to reduce redness and deeply moisturize. In consumer surveys, participants reported an improvement in redness after just three days - fast enough to satisfy even the most impatient Aries.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
Taurus’ pleasure-seeking nature makes them the ultimate self-care sign, and yet their dedication to hard work and love of routine can discourage them from taking time out to care for themselves.
Taurus’ Hero Product: Squalane + Enzyme Sugar Body Scrub
Taurus won’t be able to resist our powerfully gentle Squalane + Enzyme Sugar Body Scrub come shower time. This customizable dual-exfoliating scrub deeply exfoliates while drenching skin in hydration thanks to a powerful combination of biodegradable sugar crystals, pomegranate enzyme, and sugarcane-derived squalane. The result: visibly hydrated, more even-textured skin and a luxe in-shower experience without breaking routine.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
Versatile Gemini is intellectual and bright, but also flirty and social. The products they love most combine science-backed ingredients with that extra something-something for smoother, more radiant skin.
Gemini’s Hero Product: Squalane + Vitamin C Rose Moisturizer

It’s the perfect combination of innovation and tried-and-true ingredients for multifaceted Gemini.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)

Leo’s Hero Product: Squalane + Antioxidant Cleansing Oil
This ultra-nourishing cleanser removes every trace of dirt and makeup (even waterproof) while adding hydration back into the skin. Its powerful antioxidant blend supports healthy skin by fighting free radicals while our sugarcane-derived Squalane mimics the body’s natural oils to hydrate and support a healthy skin barrier.

Virgo’s Hero Product: Squalane + Vitamin C Rose Oil

Beauty-loving libra craves balance. And a balanced, even-textured complexion creates the perfect canvas for a gorgeous makeup look, or for letting their natural beauty shine.
Libra’s Hero Product: Squalane + BHA Pore-Minimizing Toner

Instead, our superhero squalane adds a burst of moisture to keep skin supple and hydrated, prepping it perfectly for skincare and makeup.

This incredible blend works to plump fine lines and wrinkles, increase radiance, and give you soft, smooth, ultra-hydrated skin all day long.
Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)

Sagittarius’ Hero Product: Squalane + Zinc Sheer Mineral Sunscreen
Everyone should be using SPF 30 daily no matter what their sign, but this is even more important for spontaneous Sagittarius, who may find themself catching a wave or soaking up a sunny outdoor lunch on any given day.
Make sure you’re prepared and protected by applying our SPF 30 PA+++ reef-safe sunscreen every day as the final step in your morning skincare routine. Our 100% mineral formula melts invisibly into any skin tone, while 14% non-nano zinc serves as armor against UVA and UVB rays.

Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)
Innovative, revolutionary, and dedicated to making the world a better place, Aquarius’ ethos aligns closely with our own. It’s not enough for this air sign to simply look good, they need to do good, too.
Aquarius’ Hero Product: 100% Squalane Oil
Our UC Berkeley Scientists created our sugarcane-based squalane to replace shark-derived squalene, a moisturizer that was previously sourced from shark livers. We share this remarkable invention with the entire industry, which saves 2 million sharks annually from slaughter.
Aquarius will also be delighted to discover that our sugarcane is 100% sustainable. It’s irrigated only by rain water, and its production plant runs on a closed system. We even use sugarcane bagasse - a fibrous waste product - to manufacture our outer cartons.
Deeply moisturizing, this fragrance-free oil is the ultimate all-over hydrator for Aquarius’ sustainable, vegan head-to-toe glow.

Rich in hydrating hyaluronic acid, polyglutamic acid, squalane and collagen-supporting copper peptides, our Squalane + Copper Peptide Rapid Plumping Serum visibly plumps fine lines and wrinkles upon application, providing immediate results.
