Over her decades-long career, Reese Witherspoon has only ever partnered with one beauty brand, and that’s Elizabeth Arden, one of the most iconic of them all. Today, that changes, as the actress and entrepreneur just announced a brand-new five-year contract as the Global Brand Ambassador for clean skin-care brand Biossance.
According to Witherspoon, she’s been a longtime fan of the Biossance label and its “clean and consciously-created” skin-care products. “This brand combines all the nerdy parts of science with the charm and fun parts about skin care,” the actress explains in a new IGTV beauty tutorial where she takes fans through her daily routine.
