Goodbye summer, hello fall! Although it may not feel like it here in sunny, California, it’s officially that time of the year – leggings, sweaters, scarves, (and pumpkin lattes!). Just as you’re prepping a seasonal wardrobe change, your skincare regimen should be changing with it. Check out some of our top fall must-haves to get you and your skin through the dry, cooler season.
CLEANSE – To prepare for the dry autumn days, it is important to transition away from a heavy cleanser to a gentler one that will help reduce dryness and increase hydration. Try our Tsubaki Cleansing Oil- Gel, an antioxidant-packed cleansing oil-gel designed to remove impurities and makeup while protecting the skin’s moisture barrier, for smooth, baby-soft skin. Pair your Tsubaki Cleansing Oil-Gel with our Konjac Cleansing Sponge with Deep Hydrating Clay. This pillow-soft Konjac Cleansing Sponge infused with Red Clay cleanses, exfoliates, and hydrates to deliver smoother, softer, brighter-looking baby-soft skin. Together, these products are the ultimate duo not only thoroughly removing impurities and cleansing the skin, but protecting the skin against arid weather.
EXFOLIATE – We also recommend using our Tsubaki Oil-Infused Exfoliating Powder which provides a gentle yet effective exfoliation. To activate the powder, simply add water and gently massage the mixture onto your skin. This will remove debris and oils from pores while providing long-term, deep-hydration and anti-aging benefits; essential for this time of year!
HYDRATE – Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate – the key to great skin this season! Our fall mask favorite is our Tsubaki Deep Hydration Sleeping Mask! It’s designed to awaken your softest skin ever which is a must as the temps cool down. Unlike your typical mask, our sleeping mask is applied at night and left on overnight allowing the skin to lock in ingredients (such as Tsubaki (Camellia) Oil, Wakame (Japanese Sea Kelp) and Rice Bran Oil) and offer optimal results. It also reduces fine lines, wrinkles, and loss of firmness that may have appeared from summer sun damage. Beauty sleep has never felt so smooth!
GLOW – To keep your summer glow all year long, try our B.B. Cream Bronze! It can be mixed with your daily moisturizer or foundation to give you that subtle bronze look to get you through until summer comes back around! And it’s on sale right now – only $5!
Cheers to soft, hydrated, and healthy skin this fall! What are your favorite fall must-haves? We’d love to hear from you! XOXO

We’re introducing our coolest innovation yet, Cool Blue Hydration Essence. It’s an intense blast of hydration that whips desert-dry skin into shape!
What is an essence?
An essence is known for its extremely high concentration of a nourishing ingredient for the skin. It intensely targets a primary skincare concern; many essence products focus on delivering concentrated, long-lasting hydration. Cool Blue Hydration Essence is unique because it instantly creates moisturization and firmness, while keeping the skin calm and cool.
Why Cool Blue Hydration Essence?
Cool Blue Hydration Essence has powerful ingredients which produce lasting benefits. It is a hydrating gel-serum essence formulated containing less than 1% water (unlike most skincare essence products that typically contain 60-80% water).
The powerful ingredients include:
Sake-based filtrate – Provides 82% of the base formula for instant hydration
Sea Whip - Derived from sea algae, Sea Whip is a powerful anti-inflammatory that helps to calm the skin by reducing inflammation
Caffeine -An antioxidant that firms and brightens the skin
Frescolat - Peppermint-derived, Frescolat gives a refreshing and long-lasting cooling sensation
How do I use it?
Apply 2-3 drops of Cool Blue Hydration Essence in the morning prior to your favorite boscia moisturizer and make-up. Apply it at night with your favorite boscia moisturizer for a deeper hydration as you sleep. Apply it both in the morning and at night, as often as needed.
And it’s great for all skin types!
Dry Skin: Apply Cool Blue Hydration Essence and layer it with Tsubaki Beauty Oil for a deeper hydrating experience.
Oily Skin: Apply Cool Blue Hydration Essence and add your favorite boscia moisturizer for double the hydration!
