Sharon Stone says it’s like “caviar for the skin.” Naomi Watts posted an Instagram “shelfie” featuring her favorite, Gwyneth Paltrow chose it for her Goop gift guide and Katie Couric continues to rave about it on her social media.

So, what’s the buzz all about?

Linda Thompson founded her beauty brand, Biography in 2020. The line is made up of high-quality, carefully blended “active” oils for face; and now NEW oil-infused formulas for the body, all designed to protect the skin and leave it clarified, rejuvenated, hydrated and renewed. Thanks to celebrity makeup artists who constantly request Biography for their clients, in just two short years, the brand has developed a cult-like following, and has been picked up by top retailers including Bergdorf Goodman and Neiman Marcus. Here’s why.

Actives are ingredients that actively work toward an intended purpose or specific skincare concern. These ingredients have been proven scientifically to change the structure of the skin at a cellular level. They work to repair, rejuvenate, hydrate, protect and nourish cells. Biography uses these potent “active” ingredients at carefully blended concentrations to address specific concerns. “For people with sensitive, oily, or acne-prone skin, we recommend Long June calm face oil. It contains lightweight, soothing chamomile and apricot seed oil, so it absorbs quickly and leaves the skin feeling moisturized and soothed,” explains Thompson.

One of the star ingredients in Biography’s Petty Grudges repair blend is rosehip seed oil, vitamin C phenols, and trans-retinoic acid that help repair UV damage, lighten dark spots, and soften fine lines. Biography’s Golden Ray glow face oil contains a few different actives, one of which is French marine algae. “At the concentration in Golden Ray, that algae is clinically proven to stimulate collagen production, which improves elasticity and softens wrinkles,” Thompson says. “Carrot seed oil — another active that’s packed with vitamins A, C, and E — works in tandem to help repair sun damage and scars, boost collagen, and moisturize your skin. It’s a really powerful, but gentle, product great for people with aging or damaged skin,” Thompson says.

Thompson recommends applying face oil on damp skin so it locks in hydration for a longer-lasting, dewy look. Regardless of post-cleansing products, face oils should be the final step in a skincare routine. This is because oils create an occlusive layer on the skin, which not only seals in moisture but creates a smooth canvas under sunscreen and makeup.

In addition to the newness of the mini size oils, created due to popular demand, the brand has just launched an oil-infused Hand and Body Wash and a Hand and Body Cream. The wash is a gel-like cleanser that gently purifies skin, while finely-ground Quartz and Pumice work to exfoliate leaving skin softened and buffed. Other actives include Butterfly Bush and White Peony.

The Hand and Body Cream is instantly absorbed and offers up to 12 hours of hydration with skin-softening effects thanks to ingredients like Babassu seed oil, Butterfly Bush, Camellia seed oil, and a Watermelon/Quinoa blend.

 Both the Wash and Cream are available in two unique scents. First Edition is reminiscent of a private library in an old-world cathedral, with scents of leather-bound folios, pencil shavings, musty floorboards with a whiff of freshly picked early blooms. Open Garden suggests a bursting, humid greenhouse with fresh, yet tender blossoms. Think if Monet’s ‘Water Lilies’ were a clean fragrance.
