What makes this skincare line so special?


Though 10-step routines and complicated products have become the norm over the last few years, Gabriela wanted to bring simplicity back to skincare. Reviving classic products that have nearly been lost to time, Gabriela’s taken all the secrets of skincare history and brought them to life in modern, clean formulas.

Each product is designed to have clean ingredients that work — and nothing else! There’s no fillers or false promises, just simple items to give you lovely skin.


Each of the Bésame Essentials are designed to give you a relaxing experience. Instead of slathering on cream and hurrying about your day, Gabriela created a custom self-massage for the application of each product. Of course, you can put the creams on quickly, but it’s best to take an extra moment to pamper yourself. With the Bésame Essentials, your skincare routine quickly becomes a self-care routine.



Like all Bésame products, our Essentials are designed for sensitive skin. To create the most effective yet gentle formulas, we made all our skincare products fragrance-free. This eliminates a common source of irritants and makes our line enjoyable for all.


A jar you won’t want to throw away! Each of the Bésame Essentials is housed in an art deco-inspired frosted glass jar with red aluminum lid. They’re so beautiful, you’ll never want to part with them.


Though Gabriela took inspiration from the past to create this glamorous skincare line — she meticulously updated the formulas to include modern, effective ingredients. No more greasy finish like Cold Creams of the past or pore-clogging day creams from your grandmother’s vanity. Our formulas are clean, innovative, and most importantly, give you the results you deserve.


Reviving products from the past isn’t easy! Vanishing Cream has practically vanished and Cold Creams are known more from old movies than modern use. Yet there was a beautiful simplicity in these mostly forgotten products that Gabriela had to capture for her skincare debut. After rounds and rounds with the lab (and lots of lucky employees/guinea pigs to put the creams to the test), Gabriela found the right balance of natural ingredients to create the Essentials. Here are the incredible ingredients that will help your skin feel amazing and look even more beautiful.


This cream cleans skin gently, leaves no spec of dirt behind, and leave dull skin feeling brighter. Even the triple-pigmented Bésame lipsticks don’t stand a chance against our Cold Cream! The thick cream melts away with water, leaving no greasy finish, just clean, nourished, and hydrated skin.

Cold Cream includes:

  • Coconut Oil: Naturally antibacterial and antifungal to help reduce breakouts and blemishes. Binds to makeup for easy removal and locks in moisture.
  • Sunflower Seed Oil: Cleanses without stripping the skin of its natural oil barrier. Also high in vitamin E, to help protect skin elasticity and reduce the appearance of fine lines.
  • Jojoba Oil: Mimics your skin’s natural oils to gently moisturize and nourish without clogging the pores. Also contains anti inflammatories to relieve dryness, flaking, and irritation.
  • Calendula Extract: Contains antifungal, antibacterial, and anti inflammatory properties to protect skin.


Once a vital part of any woman’s skincare and makeup routine, vanishing cream fell out of fashion in the 1950s. Thankfully, Gabriela’s brought back this powerful primer that evens-out skin tone, reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and creates a perfect base for makeup.

Vanishing Cream includes:

  • Meadowfoam Seed Oil: Helps balance oil production without clogging pores, naturally locks in hydration to protect your skin’s moisture barrier, and suppresses collagen destroying enzymes to keep skin fresh and youthful.
  • Vitamin A (Retinyl Acetate): A gentle and natural form of Vitamin A that promotes collagen synthesis and can reduce the appearance of fine lines and lessens redness and irritation from blemishes and acne.
  • Sweet Almond Oil: Contains vitamin E, an antioxidant that helps reduce UV damage to the skin and soothes and moisturizes, leaving skin with a natural dewy glow.
  • Lily Extract: Helps purify and rejuvenate skin.
  • Orange Fruit Extract: Soothes to help even out skin tone.
  • Cone Flower Extract: Also known as echinacea, it protects skin and helps combat breakouts.


Keep your skin hydrated all day long with our luxurious moisturizer. The Day Cream feels light, melts into the skin, and leaves you with a bright, dewy look.

Day Cream includes:

  • Centella Asiatica: Known in Chinese medicine as a “miracle elixir of life,” this plant has been known for it’s skin healing abilities for thousands of years. It inhibits bacterial growth, stimulates growth of new skin cells, and soothes inflammation.
  • Vitamin C Ester: A stable derivative of vitamin C that penetrates deep into the skin without irritation. It brightens and smoothes skin tone and promotes elasticity of the skin. 
  • Hyaluronic Acid: Naturally found in the body, hyaluronic acid retains an incredible amount of hydration to give skin a plump, glowing look.


Indulge in our rich nightly moisturizer. While you sleep, this Night Cream locks in moisture, soothes and nourishes, and fights to repair any skin damage.

Night Cream includes:

  • Moringa Seed Oil: Referred to as the “Miracle tree,” it contains powerful antioxidants to fight free-radical damage. High in Vitamin C, it helps stabilize collagen, reduce fine lines, and repair damaged skin cells.
  • Meadowfoam Seed Oil: Similar to your skin’s natural oils, it helps balance oil production, naturally locks in hydration, and contains stable fatty acids to help soften skin and improve texture.
  • Green Tea Extract:  Contains antioxidants, anti inflammatories, and antibacterial properties to improve acne and reduces excess oil production to prevent breakouts.
  • Chamomile Extract: A calming natural ingredient to soothe skin.
  • Lavender Extract: Helps reduce blemish causing bacteria.
  • Marshmallow Extract: Soothes and reduces redness and irritation.
  • Star Flower Seed Oil: A moisturizer rich in healthy fatty acids.
