Jean Godfrey June, Beauty Director of Goop.com

Excuse us while we Fan Girl for a moment. When it comes to beauty editors, there’s almost no one we hold in higher regard than Jean Godfrey June, the au natural Beauty Director of Goop.com and former beauty director at Lucky Magazine. June’s column at the latter outlet, called “The Beauty Closet” (who can forget those era-defining illas?), earned maximum respect for its just-between-us-BFFs writing style at a time when meaningless magazine-speak was very much the norm.

June earned a devoted following long before influencers were even a thing and we were so excited to get her into the studio to chat about which all-natural products she herself uses everyday, plus, tips on how to detox your beauty routine. (P.S. Goop by Juice Beauty is now available at Detox Market!) And we couldn’t let her go without finding out what it’s like to work with the Gwyneth Paltrow on a daily basis, including what the actress-cum-beautypreneur wore for their beach-side job interview!

Lastly, find out which new products are notable this month from Glossier, Clinique and a first at drug stores from Burt’s Bees!
