Singer SoKo Shares Her Favorite Queer-Owned, Cruelty-Free Skincare Products

See all the vegan skincare the songwriter loves in Masked and Answered.

French singer-songwriter SoKo oozes cool. Her newest album Feel Feelings and music video "Looking for Love" illustrates her effortlessly cool persona and beautiful voice so well. If you've ever wondered how she gets her skin so good, SoKo took us inside of her sunny Los Angeles bathroom to talk beauty, veganism, and bath time with her baby boy for an episode of Masked and Answered.

SoKo starts off by slathering her skin in a bright blue probiotic mask from Aliangé Skincare ($70). "This brand is from Australia and they don't test on animals," she says in the video. "I'm vegan so I love that. I take probiotics every day so I thought it'd be interesting to put them on my skin." Her morning routine? Inconsistent due to all of the attention she's giving to her son. When she does get around to it she sticks to using brands that are vegan, cruelty-free, and sustainable. She also shares a few of her favorite queer-owned brands with good values and good products. Her hair hack for reviving curls? Body oil. "My hair gets really weird and when I want more curls, I would put body oil on my hair. I love the Noto Botanics Agender Oil ($40)...It smells delicious and like that it's multi-use—it's for body and hair and it gives me good curls."

When she's at home, her favorite beauty ritual is taking a bath with her son. "I take baths with my baby. We do this every day as a part of his bedtime routine. It really is my favorite way to relax and enjoy beautiful intimacy with him." She also feels the most beautiful when she's in a "sandwich cuddle" between him and her girlfriend. "That is the most love I ever feel. The most beautiful I ever feel. And the most special I ever feel."

Along with the products mentioned above, SoKo's entire skincare and wellness lineup is as follows: Aliangé Soothing Day Cream ($70), Noto Botanics Deep Serum ($50), Youth To The People Superberry Hydrate + Glow Oil ($44), Retrouve Baume Ultime ($195), Bioderma Sensibio H20 ($15), Exuviance Vitamin C Serum Capsules ($70) Retrouve Intensive Replenishing Facial Moisturizer ($270), Egyptian Magic Cream ($32), and Youth To The People Superberry Hydrate + Glow Dream Mask with Vitamin C ($48).
