Why It’s Special

Deeply nourishing

This daily cream delivers a dose of skin nutrients, with antioxidants, vitamins A, C, and E, and essential fatty acids like omega 3, 6, 7, and 9 oils. Whether you use it day or night (or both) your skin will thank you.

Luxurious feel

Golden Hour is the Goldilocks of moisturizing creams—not too heavy, not too light. Its fast-absorbing water-based formula hydrates deeply, leaving no greasy residue behind—just oh-so-soft skin.

Gentle on all skin

We let these ingredients do what they do best, without the addition of unnecessary chemicals or unnatural scents. The result is a gentle formula that calms redness, evens skin tone, and soothes eczema-prone skin.

Eases fine lines

Ingredients like Calendula, Sea Buckthorn, and Black Currant help skin retain moisture, firmness, and elasticity, supporting a naturally smooth, lively look for well-loved skin.

How to Use

Reach for Golden Hour in the morning, as a luxurious night cream, or anytime in between. Apply after cleansing and toning, or any serums you might use.


Q: Is Golden Hour Recovery Cream the moisturizer for me?
A: We’ve found Golden Hour Recovery Cream to be a great fit for all ages and skin types. Golden Hour has a midweight texture, and works wonders as a replenishing daily moisturizer, or as a recovery cream for skin that’s been out in the elements.  

Those with particularly dry, sensitive, or mature skin may also enjoy our thicker Alpine Rich Cream for extra hydration and barrier support.

If you have oily to combination skin, or your skin simply craves a lighter touch, Fortifying Gel Moisturizer is another great option. 

Q: How and when do I use this product? 
A: Thanks to a water-based formula that absorbs quickly without a trace of heaviness or greasy residue, Golden Hour might quickly become your new favorite moisturizer. Use it as a daily moisturizer after cleansing and toning (or any serums you might use), as a luxurious night cream, or anytime your skin needs extra TLC.

Don’t forget to pair Golden Hour with SPF protection (we’re partial to our Force Field SPF 30) before heading outdoors.

Q: Can I use Golden Hour around the eye area? 
A: Of course! Golden Hour is completely safe for use around the delicate eye area and highly effective for moisturizing this region of the skin. You may also be interested in our eye-specific Forest Alchemy Eye Cream—which works to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, ease up dark circles, de-puff, and hydrate.

Q: How do I recycle this product?
A: When you run out, just give the glass jar a rinse and recycle it at home. The lid is not widely recyclable at this time.

Q: What is the aroma? 
A: A mild blend of sweet neroli, sour rose, and spicy sandalwood.

    I am so glad that I bought this cream. I love everything about it so far. It is very calming and moisturizing. I love the smell and feel confident that this will last a while. A little goes a long way.

    Perfect year round

    This is by far the best moisturizer—it’s soothing, calming, a drink for your face without feeling heavy or greasy. I can apply makeup over it without issue.
