Caldera + Lab


This product was recommended by Jared Pobre from Caldera + Lab


Good skincare is as important for men as it is for women. A morning skincare routine helps prevent acne and wrinkles and helps protect your skin from the sun’s damaging UV rays. However, most men either don’t care or take the time to clean, tone, and rehydrate their skin. And, with so many product choices, creating a simple regime can seem complicated. At Caldera + Lab, we’ve developed a luxurious three-step skincare regimen to cleanse, moisturize, and nourish a man’s face. We use wild-harvested, non-GMO, and organic ingredients, including botanicals clinically proven to be the most potent varieties and 100% fair trade. The Clean Slate is our breakthrough pH-balanced cleanser that uses gentle plant-based cleansing. Designed for sensitive skin needs, The Clean Slate is made with biome-friendly probiotics, clarifying plant extracts, hydrating amino acids, and mineral-rich glacial ocean silt extracts. This lightweight yet invigorating cleanser leaves all skin types feeling sublimely refreshed. The Base Layer is a nutrient-dense nourishing day moisturizer with 360-degree defense against environmental stress, pollution, and blue light radiation powered by immune-boosting and botanical ingredients, plant stem cells, and soothing adaptogenic actives. The Base Layer delivers intense hydration and absorbs fast, without any shine, so that you can start your day confidently. The Good- said to be the Holy Grail of face serums- is a clinically proven, multi-functional, non-toxic formula of over 27 active botanicals meticulously infused over 4 weeks in an ECOCERT COSMOS-certified facility. It’s greentek self/care, born in nature, perfected through science.

Valdé Beauty is a prestige, Latinx-owned beauty brand founded by former CMO of Sephora USA, Margarita Arriagada.

The brand currently consists of a refillable lip collection featuring richly pigmented shades, impossibly sensual textures, clean, cruelty-free and vegan formulas. The lipstick and balms live within handmade interchangeable vessels, known as Armor, that resemble wings to serve as a symbol of strength and resilience. These collectible vessels have been crafted with meticulous attention to aesthetic form and performance. Valdé Beauty is most highly regarded for its Valdé Armor + Refillable Lip Set, which retails for $199. The set arrives beautifully packaged and allows customers the unique opportunity to personalize every aspect of their lip set: the shade, formula, Valdé Armor and even optional engraving.
