Follain Founder Tara Foley Shares Her Must-Haves for At-Home Skincare

By Antonia DePace | August 25, 2020 | Style & Beauty


What was inspired by owner Tara Foley’s own questioning about what she was putting on her face and body has turned into six Follain ( locations across the United States, along with an e-commerce platform and face in big beauty retailers like Ulta, Anthropologie and QVC. Here, the mom of two shares her holy grail skincare essentials.


1. Follain Balancing Cleanser Oil Control

“We developed this charcoal-powered detoxifying cleanser for oily-combination skin, but it’s gentle enough for any skin type dealing with clogged pores due to issues like stress and maskne. My skin is dry, but this was a lifesaver for me this summer. Also, fun fact: It comes out black and lathers to a creamy white.”


2. Organic Bath Co Zesty Morning Organic Body Butter

“It’s great for dry skin going into the Boston winter—and, of course, for all the extra hand washing.”


3. Mount Lai Gua Sha Facial Lifting Tool in Rose Quartz

“It’s been a stressful summer, to say the least, and this tool has been such a pick-me-up as part of my daily self-care ritual. Gua sha reduces puffiness, relieves tension in the face and jaw, and helps firm and lift the skin over time.”


4. Follain Ultra Hydrating Mask: Restore + Soften

“A favorite for the cooler weather ahead and dry skin like mine. This nourishing mask locks in hydration and delivers smoother, softer skin in just 20 minutes of ‘me’ time—or you can even sleep in it!”


5. Follain Moisturizer: Replenish + Protect

“My forever favorite from the Follain collection and a staple in my routine. This clinically proven moisturizer improves the look of fine lines and wrinkles, and leaves skin silky smooth and hydrated.”


6. Naturopathica Vitamin C15 Wrinkle Repair Serum

“A multitasking vitamin C serum, tackling fine lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation and sun damage.”
