U Beauty Chinese Zodiacs

The ancient Chinese Zodiac dates back over 2000 years. Complete with 12 animals, your zodiac animal is determined by your birth year. Each animal represents a single year—the cycle resets every 12 years. 2024 rings in the Year of the Dragon (So, the last Year of the Dragon was 2012). 

Pro-Tip
The Chinese zodiac year officially starts on Lunar New Yearthe exact date fluctuates year to year, but typically falls late January to mid-February. So, if you were born before your year's Lunar New Year, you might actually be the sign of the previous year.

Order Matters
Legend says the Jade Emperor, the first emperor of China and the supreme ruler of heaven and earth, chose to divide up time in cycles of twelve yearswith each year named after an animal. Twelve species arrived to compete in a river race, and their placement in the race would determine the order of time. Without further ado, here are the animals (in order):

Rat: Resurfacing Compound
1924, 1936, 1948, 1960, 1972, 1984, 1996, 2008, 2020 

Witty and beguiling, the Rat infamously won on the Emperor’s Race by riding on the Ox, then jumping off his back to cross the finish line first. Still, first place merits our first launch and original sellout: the Resurfacing Compound. Rivaling your charm and complexity, the innovative Resurfacing Compound outsmarts other serums on the market, effectively replacing up to eight products in one.

Ox: The BARRIER Bioactive Treatment
1913, 1925, 1937, 1949, 1961, 1973, 1985, 1997, 2009, 2021

Placing in second, the ever-determined Ox is a symbol of strength and stability. So, it’s only fitting your go-to is The BARRIER, a restorative overnight cream equipped with the power to reveal stronger, healthier-looking skin. “Slow and steady wins the race” is the Ox’s mantra. True. With consistent use, The BARRIER delivers undeniable results, like baby-soft skin in the morning. Skeptical? Like the stubborn Ox, The BARRIER loves to prove you wrong.

Tiger: Multimodal Defender Broad Spectrum SPF 30
1914, 1926, 1938, 1950, 1962, 1974, 1986, 1998, 2010, 2022

Magnetic and exuberant, the ever-confident Tiger loves (and commands) attention. Celebrated as the “King of the Animals” in China, you’re no docile indoor kitty. With an affinity for the spotlight, you need a sunscreen that can keep up. Enter the Multimodal Defender SPF 30an innovative sun treatment with built-in skin brightening benefits. Because no ordinary sunscreen will do for the Tiger. 

Rabbit: Resurfacing Body Compound
1927, 1939, 1951, 1963, 1975, 1987, 1999, 2011, 2023

Soft, elegant, and diplomatic, the Rabbit is considered the luckiest of all twelve signs. Peaceful yet prone to stress, you’re sensitive to imperfections. So is the Resurfacing Body Compound, a gentle-but-potent body exfoliator designed to visibly uniform the skinsmoothing flakes and rough patches, decongesting skin texture. 

Dragon: The PLASMA Lip Compound in Shanghai
1928, 1940, 1952, 1964, 1976, 1988, 2000, 2012, 2024

With sky-high ambitions, the iconic Dragon is the only mythical creature in the Chinese Zodiac. Naturally, you match up with The PLASMA Lip in vibrant red Shanghai, for an audacious look that personifies your innate imperial power, wherever you go. It’s your year, after all.

Snake: The RETURN Eye Concentrate
1941, 1953, 1965, 1977, 1989, 2001, 2013, 2025

Enigmatic and alluring, the Snake notoriously symbolizes mystique and wisdom. A sharp observer, the Snake sees right through others like no one else. Meet the RETURN Eye Concentrate: A silky eye cream designed to visibly plump, contour, tighten, and brighten the eye, it’s the ideal accessory for the most perceptive sign of the zodiac. 

Horse: The SUPER Tinted Hydrator
1942, 1954, 1966, 1978, 1990, 2002, 2014, 2026 

Vivacious horse is all about the hottest new thing. Energetic, dynamic, and always on-the-go, you’re a trendsetter with an unrivaled pioneering spiritwhat better to align with you than The SUPER Tinted Hydrator?

Goat: The SUPER Hydrator
1919, 1931, 1943, 1955, 1967, 1979, 1991, 2003, 2015, 2027

A symbol of peace and prosperity, the Goat is a bit of a paradox. They look gentle on the surface, but they’re rumored to be secretly resilient and opinionated. Same with The SUPER Hydrator. Don't be fooled by its appearance—far from a typical moisturizer, the luscious SUPER is packed with five special types of hyaluronic acid, delivering deep, drenching hydration that lasts. You guys are so deep.

Monkey: The SCULPT Arm Compound
1932, 1944, 1956, 1968, 1980, 1992, 2004, 2016, 2028

Up for anything, the playful Monkey loves to be activesports, games, the like. Nothing complements the Monkey’s ready-to-go attitude like the SCULPT Arm Compound, an innovative concentrate that visibly tightens and tones loose skin.  Suitable for the arms, neck, hands, or anywhere you want firmer-looking skin. 

RoosterThe SUPER Body Hydrator
1945, 1957, 1969, 1981, 1993, 2005, 2017, 2029

Let's flashback to ancient times. Hmm, no alarm clock foundonly the ever-punctual and stylish Rooster. The epitome of self-discipline, you deserve a product that works as hard as you do. Meet The SUPER Body Hydrator, a radically formulated body moisturizer that actively hydrates for up to 48 hours. Plus, its high-sheen finish satisfies the Rooster’s penchant for showing off. All the hens will love it.

Dog: The Plasma Trio
1934, 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006, 2018, 2030

Two words: Crowd. Pleaser. Popular Dog, known for its unwavering loyalty, is revered as the most well-liked sign of the zodiac. Saying you "dislike" dogs is terribly controversial—it's even worse than saying you "dislike" babies. Same goes for The Plasma Trio. Formulated with our sellout plumping formula, this set's universally beloved. Customizable by cherry-picking your favorite three Tints from the full collection, it’s truly impossible to go wrong.

Pig: The MANTLE Skin Conditioning Wash
1935, 1947, 1959, 1971, 1983, 1995, 2007, 2019, 2031

Guess nice guys do finish last. Optimistic Pig naturally aligns with The MANTLE, a wash that's as nourishing and supportive as you are. Just like you're the first to offer a helping hand, The MANTLE humbly cleanses the skin before all other products, so they can maximally perform. Critics call the Pig "lazy"—we prefer "efficient." The MANTLE double cleanses in a single step, so you can spend more time on what's important: Relaxation.
