NEW YORK, NY – FEBRUARY 09: Lori Harvey poses backstage for Cushnie Et Ochs during New York Fashion Week: The Shows at Pier 17 on February 9, 2018 in New York City. (Photo by Mireya Acierto/Getty Images for New York Fashion Week: The Shows) In the latest installment of Vogue’s Beauty Secrets video seies, Lori Harvey took fans through her everyday getting-ready routine and casually dropped the news that she has a skin-care line on the way. The model, whose stepfather is television host Steve Harvey, is so passionate about skin care that she’s in the process of putting the finishing touches on her own collection of products, which she’s currently beta testing on herself — and the important men in her life. “I tested all my products, of course, on myself, but I also tested them on my boyfriend,” said Harvey, who has been publicly dating actor Michael B. Jordan for the last several months. “He has become my live test model, so now he’s very into his skin-care routine as well. He tells me all the time that when he’s on set, the makeup artists compliment his skin.” In fact, Harvey has gotten her stepfather into a consistent skin-care regimen as well. “So if you’re wondering why his skin looks so good lately,” she says, smiling, “it’s because of me.” Throughout the tutorial, Harvey incorporated products from her own line, including a low-pH cleanser that was inspired by her own sensitive skin and her struggle to find products that didn’t leave it feeling stripped of moisture. She also teased what she calls the “perfect eye cream,” created with her mom’s advice that “prevention is better than correction” in mind. While the model credits her mom for her philosophy on beauty, she also mentioned makeup artist Pat McGrath as an inspiration. “She taught me so much,” said Harvey. “There’s a lack of Black women in the beauty space, and in the skin-care space, so she definitely inspired me to create my own brand.” So far, there’s no official release date for Harvey’s skin-care collection, but let’s just say we are very ready to test out the “perfect eye cream” that also happens to be Michael B. Jordan-approved. Like what you see?

On a crowded shelf of skin-care lines that boast being clean, "good for you," and "good for the planet," it's easy for new brands to get lost — so when one stands out, it's worth paying attention. INNBeauty Project has been generating buzz on the web since its launch in late 2019, just months before health officials declared COVID-19 a global pandemic and brick-and-mortar shopping became out of the question.The brand, founded by industry veterans Alisa Metzger and Jen Shane, was created to make safe, affordable beauty accessible for once. "We are both obsessed with skin care and love the clean movement," Metzger tells me. "We have so much respect for the brands that pioneered the category, like Drunk Elephant, Beauty Counter, and Youth to the People, and we recognized the need for effective and clean skin care that was affordable."Here's the rundown: Individual items in the range are all under thirty bucks, and each item in the INNBeauty lineup is outfitted in multi-colored packaging you'll actually want to reach for every day. "There is no reason that an effective and clean brand had to look dull or minimalist," Metzger says. INNBeauty also made a sustainability commitment, pledging to fund the removal of three plastic units from landfills, waterways, and marine environments for every product sold.It's hard not to scroll through TikTok and find a review of the brand's viral pimple paste or tinted lip oil — both of which blew up during the pandemic. "Spending hundreds of dollars on a skin routine wasn't possible, and our accessible price points resonated with our audience," Metzger explains. "Our top products — Slushy and Pimple Paste — won over consumers and cured their maskne, while being affordable."The hype left me wondering: Is INNBeauty Project worth trying? I tested out some of its best-loved products. Read on for my honest reviews, ahead.At Refinery29, we’re here to help you navigate this overwhelming world of stuff.

INNBeauty Project Slushy Serum Moisturizer Crush The name of this product was enough to pique my interest. I'm a sucker for a cherry ICEE slushy, so this felt nostalgic. Adolescent associations aside, I was even more curious about the serum-moisturizer hybrid, which has bakuchiol, hyaluronic acid, and yuzu for hydrating and brightening. The pump dispenses a frosty formula that mimics actual slush. The application is no-frills: I warmed it up between my fingers, and it instantly melted down to a serum-like consistency. It absorbed quickly into my skin, leaving my pores smooth and hydrated. I expected a dewier finish but was surprisingly impressed when this dried down like satin. INNBEAUTY PROJECT Slushy Serum Crush, $, available at Innbeauty ProjectINNBeauy Project Pimple PasteThis little tube is the star of the INNBeauty show for a very, very good reason. The formula is a potent mixture of willow bark (a salicylic acid alternative), azelaic acid, tea tree oil, and — my personal favorite — sulfur. Like many people, I've also been dealing with the effects of maskne on my skin. I put this on a pimple when I feel it sprouting up, and a few hours later, it's vanished without a trace. I've tried my fair share of drying lotions and pimple patches, and this is one of the best I've used by far. If you had to spend on only one INNBeauty item, I say go for this. INNBEAUTY PROJECT Pimple Paste, $, available at Innbeauty ProjectINNBeauty Foam Around Clarifying CleanserFoam cleansers aren't my favorite, so I went into my face-washing experience with this glycolic and salicylic acid-packed formula prepared to be underwhelmed and over-cleansed when it was all said and done. I used three pumps to wash my face, neck, and chest, and was pleasantly surprised with how clean my skin felt as I massaged it in. When I got out of the shower, my skin didn't feel uncomfortably dry, which usually happens to me after using foam. Was it my favorite cleanser ever? No. But it gets the job done, which is enough to keep it in my shower caddy.INNBEAUTY PROJECT Foam Around Clarifying Cleanser, $, available at Innbeauty ProjectINNBeauty Project Power Up Face MistThis mist doesn't leave behind the greasy cast that most dual-phase mists leave behind. Instead the spray — which goes on light and airy — left my skin feeling revived after one spritz. I've been particularly dry thanks to NYC's unstable weather, and I've enjoyed applying this on my bare skin throughout the day.INNBEAUTY PROJECT Power Up Face Mist, $, available at Innbeauty ProjectINNBeauty Project Down To ToneToner is the one skin-care category I've gotten super lazy with, but I enjoyed testing this exfoliating formula. It's alcohol-free, so you won't get that burning sensation that some toners give; instead, this one is lightweight and smooth, and almost feels like an essence. Between the niacinamide and a brightening blend of six acids, my skin feels hydrated and glowy once it all seeps in. I haven't forgotten to use it since I've cracked the bottle open, which is a good sign.INNBEAUTY PROJECT Down To Tone, $, available at Innbeauty ProjectINNBeauty Project Face GlazeIt's hard to believe that I was once a full-matte-face type of gal, considering all of the glow-enhancing products I've fallen in love with during the pandemic. This is one of them. The brand calls Face Glaze a cross between skin care and makeup thanks to nourishing ingredients like squalane and ceramides. I like to swipe this on before Zoom calls when I don't have time to be precise with concealer. It gives me a natural glow and makes my skin look filtered IRL.INNBEAUTY PROJECT FACE GLAZE, $, available at Innbeauty ProjectINNBeauty Project Extra Glaze Lip OilMy daily lip gloss collection has also grown to feature this one regularly. The comfortable formula gives my lips that coveted plumped look without the burning sensation that some glosses have. I also love the shimmery, natural tint that enhances my natural lip color, and the fact that it does actually kinda taste like a glazed donut.INNBEAUTY PROJECT EXTRA GLAZE, $, available at Innbeauty ProjectLike what you see?
