Why It’s Special

Skin nutrition

Packed with powerful, plant-derived nutrients. Vitamin A to preserve your glow, Vitamin C and E to brighten, plump, and soothe, and barrier-loving fatty acids to balance everything back out. It’s like an all-in-one skin supplement that works on contact.

Buttery texture

Not too heavy, not too light—but that sweet spot in between. Golden Hour is rich and moisturizing but won’t leave a greasy layer behind. Its water-based formula instantly absorbs into skin for a soft, non-oily feel.

Super natural

We let the natural ingredients in Golden Hour do what they do best, without adding any harmful chemicals or artificial fragrances. The result is a clean, gentle formula, powered by only safe, naturally effective actives.

Preserve your glow

Golden Hour supports your skin now, so you can keep seeing your healthiest skin later. Antioxidant and fatty acid-rich ingredients like Calendula, Sea Buckthorn, and Black Currant work to lock in moisture, prevent damage, and promote a more even, glowy complexion.

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.
