shea butter, mango butter, tapioca starch, organic sunflower oil, organic evening primrose oil, red raspberry seed oil, candelilla wax, non-gmo tocopherol oil (vitamin e), mica*, ylang ylang essential oil, geranium essential oil  *mica contains: Mica (CI 77019), titanium dioxide (CI 77891), iron oxide (CI 77491)
  • Shea butter: Shea butter is a non-comedogenic emollient produced from the African shea tree nut. It soaks in quickly to provide a protective barrier layer that prevents dehydration without causing breakouts and, it's full of skin-barrier strengthening vitamins and antioxidants like vitamins E, D, and A.
  • Candelilla wax: Candelilla wax is a vegan wax derived from the candelilla shrub. It has moisturizing, protective properties and creates a water-proof barrier layer, which prevents moisture loss holding the moisturizing oils and butter in our all-over balm on your skin longer. 
  • Organic sunflower oil: Sunflower oil is a lightweight but comforting non-comedogenic oil. It soaks in quickly without leaving a greasy sheen to strengthen and repair the skin barrier. It's high in vitamin E and free-radical fighting antioxidants, as well as essential fatty acids to nourish and condition dry skin.
  • Mango seed butter: mango seed butter is a non-pore clogging butter derived from mango seeds that conditions and repairs, leaving the skin feeling silky and soft, not greasy. Mango seed butter is rich in vitamins E, A, and C - antioxidants that repair damaged skin - and contains anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial, and antibacterial tannins. 
  • Organic evening primrose oil: Evening primrose is full of anti-inflammatory omega 6 and 9 fatty acids. It's a lightweight but deeply conditioning oil with a lovely texture that balances and soothes all skin types, from mature to acne-prone.
  • Virgin red-raspberry seed oil: Red raspberry seed oil is lightweight, non-pore clogging, and full of anti-inflammatory vitamins and repairing fatty acids. The exceptionally high levels of linolenic acid in red-raspberry seed oil are said to help with inflammatory skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis. Some studies have even shown that red raspberry seed oil protects against UV damage
  • Tocopherol oil (Vitamin-E): Vitamin E tocopherols, derived from 100% non-GMO sunflower seeds, extend the shelf life of the other oils in our formulations due to their high levels of free-radical fighting antioxidants. These free-radical fighting antioxidants also help repair and nourish your skin!
  • Tapioca flour: Soothing tapioca flour works like magic to leave your skin with the perfect dewy-matte finish. 
  • Mica: A tiny bit of light reflecting mica (the same pearlescent color blend as highlight shimmer powder) leaves your skin looking flawless, without the slightest trace of glitter. 
  • Essential oils: Ylang-ylang and geranium essential oils balance your skin's oil production and promote radiance while leaving a light, fresh floral scent. 

The basics: Massage a dime sized amount onto clean skin. Suggested: layer over your favorite twinkle facial oil!

If you need a more targeted approach: Dot very small amounts across forehead, nose, cheekbones, chin, jawline, and neck, and gently massage upwardly into skin. You can spot-apply facewhip wherever you want a subtle dewy highlight! 

The magic moment: Facewhip goes on thick and may feel a bit oily at first, but give it about 1-2 minutes to soak into your skin - you'll be left with a subtly-matte glowy finish!  

Start small: If it feels oily on your skin and doesn't seem to soak in, you might have used a little too much. Don't worry - just follow with translucent mattifying powder to balance things out! 

Then what: Follow with your favorite makeup or wear it alone. Suggested: apply translucent mattifying powder over your facewhip for an even more flawless finish! 

Does this deposit any color onto my skin? 

No. This is a transluscent moisturizer. It leaves you with a subtle light-reflecting glow, but it isn't a makeup product. Actually, it's more like a skincare/makeup hybrid! 

Can I wear facewhip as a night cream? 

Of course! It may say "day cream" on the label, but there's no reason why you can't wear facewhip to bed at night. It's full of non-pore clogging ingredients that will heal and repair your skin while you sleep.  

Why did you discontinue the barely bronze shade, that was my favorite?! 

Making cuts isn't fun, but it is necessary to keep things simple (and more cost effective!) as a one person brand. There isn't that much of a difference between translucent and barely bronze facewhip. If you prefer the barely bronze shade, you can mix a tiny amount of bronze shimmer powder into your facewhip. See the video below for instructions!

I have learned that I cannot live without Facewhip. It is so emollient & rich. My face is so dry & Facewhip makes my skin feel awesome!!


Bought the sample size and am in love. I continue to receive compliments on how great I look and it's all because of the Facewhip. My skin before looked so dull as my gray hair was coming in and now it looks healthy and vibrant again. It gives you a sort of glow and feels great too. Best product hands down I've ever used.

So Dreamy

I've been layering this under a bit of tinted oil foundation and I feel like I have the glow I've searched for for so long. I live in a dry climate and the texture of his product helps keep my skin the perfect amount of hydrated. (Not too oily, definitely not parched.) I can't wait to wear it alone. This 100% nails the natural glow look.

Kate Kettner
Favorite product ever!

This is always what I list as my favorite Twinkle product. If you only have enough money for one item, make it this or her Toner. I’ve been using this pretty much since she created it, and absolutely love the way it makes my face look. Highly recommend!

Claire Cote
Perfect daytime moisturizer

The facewhip is like no other product I've ever tried. So rich and moisturizing (even in the dry winter months) but not at all greasy or shiny. Skin looks soft and dewy. It's the perfect "no makeup" makeup.
