Tremella is at the heart of Herbivore’s Pink Cloud Creamy Jelly Cleanser, which the brand touts as great for removing makeup, too. “The feathery mushroom gives our formula its jelly texture and has the ability to leave the skin hydrated, soft, and perfectly prepped for the rest of your skincare ritual,” she shares. Other ingredients like squalene and rose water help further moisturize and soothe.

Herbar’s debut product, the Face Oil, includes both reishi and tremella mushrooms to help hydrate, calm, and illuminate the skin. Also included are nourishing hemp seed oil and bakuchiol, a plant-based ingredient backed by dermatologists as a sensitive skin-friendly alternative to retinol.
