Mandy Moore is one of our all-time exemplars of fresh-faced beauty — you’re not likely to see her with a bold blue eye or an intensely contoured face, but she can be relied on to look polished, elegant and pretty no matter what the event.

And now she has a new secret weapon in her naturally beautiful arsenal: Beautycounter, a brand-new skincare line devoted to safe and healthy beauty products. And Moore’s such a fan of the brand that she hosted its launch party with her longtime pal, designer Lela Rose (right).

“I find myself making more of an active choice to use cleaner products and being generally conscious of the products I do use and what’s in them,” Moore tells PEOPLE of her beauty routine. “We’re all so aware of what goes in our bodies that being educated about what goes on our bodies is the next logical step.”

Moore admits to not being “100% there yet” in terms of an organic or all-natural beauty routine, but she loves safe, healthy lines like Josie Maran (their Coconut Cheek Gelée is part of her five-minute beauty routine and she adds their Argan Hydrating Lipstick if she has a little longer) and RMS (she swears by the line’s Living Luminizer for the quick fix and “Un” Powder for a full face). She also loves Clé de Peau concealer and Anastasia eyeliner and brow pencil, and finishes her whole look off with Beautycounter Rosewater Uplifting Spray for “a dewy look.”

And though she’s incorporating new products (like the Beautycounter eye cream) into her routine, she swears by one thing straight out of the fridge for a totally natural, organic finish: Unrefined, organic coconut oil as “as the ultimate moisturizer. It’s a little oily when it goes on but your body drinks it up pretty quickly, and it smells yummy without being overpowering.” Giving whole new meaning to the phrase “treat yo’ self!”
