Our Story

Pioneering Skincare for Sleep

Dedicated to Beauty Sleep

Hi! We're Kriszta and Stephy. We're best friends, former roommates at Parsons School of Design, and Co-Founders of Moonlit Skincare.

In college, the combination of stress and late nights wreaked havoc on our skin and sleep routines 🕝 We searched for a simple nighttime solution, but only found mysterious “night” creams with high price points (mostly for an older demographic) and generic packaging that looked terrible on our night-stands. 

It was clear that the most restorative hours for skin were an after-thought in the beauty industry. After working years at various design agencies and beauty brands, we decided to join forces and create Moonlit.

💤 Quality sleep is always recommended for great skin so we sought out to create a brand that emphasizes nighttime skincare and sleep wellness 🌙 Read more about the brand story here.

"Invest in rest.

We strive to devote Moonlit's energy and research capabilities to these restorative, healing hours."

Why Bali?

🌿 Deemed the Wellness Capital of the World, Bali is home to potent, natural ingredients that sync with the science of sleep.

Bali is a top destination for rejuvenation, retreats, yoga, relaxation, healing, and all things wellness.

We bring that same intention into our formulas 🍃
