The Beauty Products Every Minimalist Needs

ByCaitlin M.

If your recent purchases include crisp white sneakers, a marble butcher block—or really, marble anything—and a simple clothing rack, chances are you're living your best minimalist life. (How Millennial of you!) But beyond cleaning out your beauty stash and parring it down to the bare necessities, the next logical step to achieve minimal life #goals is to curate a perfectly Insta-friendly shelfie. To help you master that #minimallife, we found ten products that ooze cool.

Fig + Yarrow Pink Love Salts ($32)

Formulated with essential oils and mineral-rich Himalayan pink salts, this rosy find is a welcome addition to any crisp shower caddy. If the pink salts don't sell you on this buy, the simplistic packaging will. That clean label, the typewriter font—what's not to love?

Erno Laszlo Phelityl Pre-Cleansing Oil ($55)

The beauty world already knows the power of Erno Laszlo products, and now the Insta-world is catching on thanks to its sleek, no frills packaging. Although that yellow bottle is quite photogenic (we'll give you that) it's really the formula that impresses us: it can remove makeup and impurities on contact and contains a pH level nearly identical your skin!

S.W. Basics Toner ($22)

S.W. Basics' toner wins the minimal award on many levels. Not only is that vintage label and glass tonic-like bottle a star, but  it's also a simplistic cocktail of organic, raw apple cider vinegar and witch hazel, which makes this a skincare show-stopper.

Captain Blankenship Rose and Pomegranate Face Oil ($38)

An organic blend of jojoba oil, sunflower oil, pomegranate seed oil, camellia seed oil, calendula extract, organic carrot seed oil, vitamin E, and rose essential oil make this a natural beauty gal's top choice. But that adorable blue bottle and white lettering also win brownie points!

Herbivore Blue Tansy AHA + BHA Resurfacing Clarity Mask ($48)

AHA and BHA might be the stars of this face mask thanks to their exfoliating and smoothing properties, but we're all about the lush blue hue of the blue tansy paired in contrast with the clean jar and sans serif label. Swoon!

RODIN olio lusso Lip balm ($34)

It doesn't get more simple than this: good product—good packaging. RODIN's legendary olio lusso Face Oil gets the lip balm treatment with this product. Your lips will thank you for the treat and your Instagram feed will appreciate the nice sleek lines of the geometric container. 

RMS Beauty Magic Luminizer ($38)

The cult favorite RMS Living Luminzer just got a shiny new sister with the Magic Luminizer. The pigmented pot can be used anywhere to give you a "moonlit-champagne opalescence." Plus, the tiny but might glass packaging is stunning for any #flatlay.

Aesop Resurrection Hand Balm ($24)

Aesop's classic balm is a winter necessity to soothe rough, dry hands, cuticles, and feet, so there's no wonder it's an indie beauty golden child. As if the results didn't sell you enough, the rosy packaging, which includes all the ingredients and info you need about the product right on the tube, will. No unnecessary fluff here!

Sachajuan Ocean Mist ($31)

The combination of aqua blue and crisp clean white labeling is minimal heaven. If this product doesn't get your shelfie all the likes, the beachy texture of your hair after a few spritzes will.

Moon Juice Power Dust ($30)

Call this herbal energy, if you will, as Power Dust boasts energy and metabolic support. Take with tea, coffee, water, or a smoothie to get the maximum results. Can't you just see this jar making for a lovely Snapchat subject?
