Best Clean Beauty Brands at Sephora
There are SO many clean beauty options out there that it can be a bit overwhelming! Throw in the fact that just because a brand is clean doesn’t mean all of its products are clean and it can get really confusing. Below is a list of some of our favorite clean beauty brands. These are brands in which one or more Team Busbee member has tried at least one product (or more) from! We all have different skin types, tones, and textures so what works for one person might night work for another. Luckily, Sephora has pretty easy returns even if you’ve tried a product! Find some of our favorite clean brands at Sephora below and 42 (yes, 42!!) of our top clean beauty picks!

42 Best Clean Beauty Products At Sephora
We’re breaking down our favorite clean beauty products into 3 categories…clean makeup, clean skin care, and clean hair care and hair tools.
This is a BIG Team Busbee favorite! You may remember Erin using it in this post where she tried some trending beauty techniques. Almost all of us have bought this Westman Atelier contour stick over the past year and LOVE it! If you’re new to contouring or feel like you could never get it quite right, you need this stick…it makes contouring foolproof! It’s super easy to blend and feels very luxe.
The Lawless lip products are really having a moment right now. The plumping lip gloss went viral a month ago and now they have a new lip balm that our YouTube co-producer, Denise, says is amazing…it’s super hydrating and plumping!
When we were putting this list together, two Team Busbee members recommended this foundation and concealer stick so we had to share! It’s super buildable, lightweight, and it really is complexation perfecting.
If you’re looking to try a new mascara, Denise loves this Tower 28 mascara! It adds so much volume, lengthens, doesn’t flake, and it’s safe for sensitive eyes.
Another Merit favorite that Denise has been raving about since they came out is the tinted lip oils! She loves the Taupe shade but they’re all really beautiful and SO hydrating!
Need a new face primer? This caliray primer is super lightweight, has collagen peptides that help keep your skin hydrated, and really helps blur pores, fine lines, and smooth imperfections. It has a beautiful matte finish perfect for prepping your face before applying your makeup for the day.
Two Team Busbee members use and love this foundation…and they both always have flawless makeup so you know it’s good! One even said it’s her “ride or die foundation”! It has medium coverage, helps reduce redness, and is very lightweight with a gorgeous natural finish.
Refresh your spring makeup look with some new blush! This rms beauty blush blends beautifully into the skin and comes in a few shades. Denise loves “Maiden’s Blush” but the Mai Tai shade would be SO fun for a bright summery look.
If you’re looking for a more affordable cream bronzer compared to the Westman Atelier contour stick, this is a beautiful cream bronzer option by Tarte! It also blends well and a little goes a long way.
Tinted moisturizers really grew in popularity about two years ago and we love that they’re a great way to get light coverage on those “no-makeup makeup” days. This Saie tint is a liquid formula that feels pretty oily so it’s great for anyone with dry skin. It gives a very dewy, glowy look!
This is technically a lip treatment but we’re sharing it under makeup because it comes in a few different shades. It’s super hydrating and has a smooth, buttery texture.
This Ilia super serum skin tint is technically called a foundation, but it’s very light coverage. Similar to the Saie tinted moisturizer, you’ll get a super dewy finish. This tint is different because it also has active skincare ingredients like hyaluronic acid, niacinamide, and squalene which make it more like a serum.
This Kosas skin enhancer is super popular right now and gives the most beautiful glow (without that glittery look). It’s a product you can use alone, mix into your foundation, or use as a primer. It’s not greasy or oily like other radiance products can be. And it’s infused with vitamins so it’s kind of like a gel-like serum.
This award-winning primer is a must-try! It smooths your skin before applying makeup, is very hydrating, and really helps your makeup stay put!
Clean Skin Care
Everyone on Team Busbee loves Supergoop’s Unseen Sunscreen! Daily sunscreen is a must for women of all ages and this one is lightweight, doesn’t smell like sunscreen, and is a great makeup primer!
If you’re dealing with hyperpigmentation, Joy highly recommends this serum! It helps reduce the look of hyperpigmentation with a glowy finish that’s not glittery or shiny.
This Tatcha moisturizer is SO good! Especially if you need some extra help with dryness, uneven texture, and loss of firmness. The rich creamy formula is super hydrating, plumping, and gives a healthy glow.
If you’re looking for a more affordable moisturizer, this Wishful moisturizer is a great option! It’s super hydrating and locks in moisture, has niacinamide that reduces the look of pores and uneven skin texture, and really gives the skin that glassy, dewy look.
If you’re ready to add a new face mask into your rotation, the Drunk Elephant Babyfacial Mask is perfect! It gives you that at-home peel to help resurface your skin and give you a refreshed, even tone and texture.
This Skinfix face cream is very highly rated and the brand’s #1 best seller! It firms, brightens, and plumps with active lipids, peptides, and hyaluronic acid.
Joy has tried a lot of products from Farmacy and really loves a lot of their products! One of her faves is this hyaluronic plumping serum. If you don’t already have a hyaluronic acid serum in your routine, this is a great one to try!
Tula has a cult following for many of their products, but this face cleanser is one of its top sellers! It’s a gel-based purifying cleaner that’s very gentle on the skin. Another popular product by Tula that another Team Busbee member recommends is the Glow + Get It eye balm.
If you struggle with dark spots, definitely try this Caudalie serum! A Team Busbee member used a mini bottle of this serum and noticed seriously brighter skin after about a week of use. It’s super lightweight and can help with dark spots and skin tone.
If you’re looking for a gentle daily exfoliator, this REN tonic is wonderful! It makes the skin feel cleaner, brighter, tighter, and glowy. It has lactic acid, salicin, and azelaic acid to help remove dead skin for a smoother texture, minimize pores, and brighten and even skin tone.
First Aid Beauty’s repair cream is a classic moisturizer you can use all over and is great to keep in your beauty cabinet!
If you’re not already using retinol in your skincare routine, this is your reminder to start! This serum has retinol, bakuchiol (a retinol-like ingredient), and rambutan that all work together to help smooth fine lines and support collagen production for younger-looking skin!
We mentioned bakuchiol in the last product…it’s a retinol-like ingredient that many people use if they don’t want to or can’t use retinol. This bakuchiol-based serum comes highly recommended by Joy for reducing fine lines, smoother texture, and reducing pores.
Erin loves this luxe whipped argan oil body butter by Josie Maran. It’s super hydrating, which is a must while living at 9000 ft altitude in Colorado where it’s very dry!
The Nécessaire brand is very popular and makes very nice body products. This set includes the body exfoliator, body wash, body lotion, and body serum!
You can never have too much sun protection! This award-winning Coola serum is a great everyday sunscreen, super lightweight, and gives a beautiful glow.
Tata Harper has super luxe skincare products that are all great. But this resurfacing mask is amazing, makes skin look brighter, and evens out the texture.
Clean Hair Care & Tools
This Dyson Airwrap is the most sought-after styler so if it’s still in stock when you’re able to shop and you’re in the market for a new hair dryer/curler combo…grab it!
Additionally, the Dyson hair dryer is also very popular and will be another item that sells out quickly!
dae is a very popular brand for haircare right now and this set is a great way to try the brand!
There are so many great reviews about the Nutrafol supplements and women see great results! Nobody on Team Busbee has tried them yet but we had to share in case you’ve tried and love them or are looking to try them while they’re on sale!
Healthy hair starts with a healthy scalp and Erin loves this exfoliating scalp scrub!
If you want silky smooth hair, try this deep conditioner that Erin loves! If you have super fine hair, it can be a little heavy so if you can get a sample to try first.
This is Erin’s (and quite a few team members’) favorite curling iron by T3! It’s simple to use and gives a beautiful, long-lasting curl.
This T3 hair dryer is a little less expensive than the Dyson but works just as well (if not better)!
ghd makes very high-quality hair tools and this flat iron is a Team Busbee favorite.
This blow dryer brush by Drybar is perfect for taming frizzy, thick hair!
If you haven’t tried sleeping on a silk pillowcase yet, just trust us…it makes a huge difference for your hair. And this set comes with scrunchies too!
