The Best Beauty Products for Cancers featured image

Anyone born between June 22 and July 22 can likely say their sun sign is Cancer, the water sign ruled by the moon, which, in astrology, oversees emotions, instincts and intuition, maternal energy, and sense of security. Known for being deeply nurturing, emotionally intelligent, ingratiatingly hilarious, artistic and self-protective, Cancers’ personal style tends to be an expression of whatever’s in their hearts—and whatever feels comfortable, as this homebody sign lives for coziness. They’re romantics, so a soft, ethereal palette is always a winner with this water sign. And given their sentimental nature, they’re natural born collectors and lovers of nostalgia, always down to try a classic throwback look. Whether you’re a Cancer yourself or are looking to gift one, we’ve curated a list of beauty products that are ideal for this sensitive, loving water sign. 

(And BTW, even if your birthday doesn’t fall between Cancer sun sign dates, you may have the moon or another placement in your astrological birth chart in Cancer, so it’s worth casting a chart, which you can do here.)

Rosebud Perfume Co. Strawberry Lip Balm ($8)

The sign voted most likely to reminisce about their go-to Bonne Bell lip balm from middle school is, hands down, Cancer, who revels in walks down memory lane. This sweet-smelling, moisturizing, grown-up version from Rosebud Perfume Co. could also be a staple for their default, natural, romantic look.

Goodnight Moon Chest/Neck Sleep Mask Revitalizing Decollete Mask ($28)

One of Cancer’s ruling body parts is the chest, which means not only are Crabs pros at rocking necklines that flaunt their décolletage, but they’ll also likely find it therapeutic to tend to this delicate skin with a specialized, revitalizing beauty treatment. Not only is this mask packed with adaptogenic herbs and hyaluronic acid, but it’s named after Cancer’s ruler: the moon. Too fitting!

Josie Maran Vanilla Vibezzz – Argan Oil + Sugar Balm Refillable Exfoliating Body Scrub Jar ($29)

You’d be hard-pressed to meet a Cancer who doesn’t have at least a slight sweet tooth, which is why they’re quick to gravitate to any beauty product that smells yummy and ideally brings back memories of a particularly delicious experience—like, say, enjoying creamy soft serve at the beach. This vanilla-scented sugar and argan oil body scrub is sure to check all those boxes.

Tarte Sex Kitten Black Liquid Eyeliner ($24) 

Talk about retro—winged eyeliner has been in style for literally thousands of years, dating back to the Egyptians and Mesopotamians around 10,000 BCE. Today, Cancer queens Ariana Grande and Lana Del Rey exemplify the look that any vintage-adoring Crab will enjoy mastering with a liquid liner like this one from Tarte.

Dior Rouge Dior Forever Transfer-Proof Lipstick in 999 – Forever Dior ($47)

Security-seeking Crabs are known for being budget-savvy, but if they’re going to splurge, it might as well be on a product they’ll get a ton of mileage out of, like Dior’s makeout-proof classic red lipstick. Boasting 16 hours of wear and a bare-lip feel, the coral red 999 hue also happens to be as old Hollywood as it gets, which is definitely a plus in Cancer’s book.

The 7 Virtues Coconut Sun Eau de Parfum ($88) 

It’s true: Cancers might have a tendency to retreat into their shell when they’re a bit blue. But when they’re feeling vivacious, the cardinal water sign can be the absolute life of the party—and deserve a fresh, fun, beachy fragrance to match. With notes of sultry coconut, romantic frangipani and classic vanilla, this clean scent is fit for sweet early summer-born Crabs.

dae Hibiscus Wave Spray ($30)

Priyanka Chopra and Busy Philipps are just a couple of famous Cancerians who prove the water sign excels at pulling off perfectly tousled mermaid hair.
