7 Skin-Care Products our Editors Are Obsessed With This Month
It’s a brand new month, which means a new products are making their way into our bathroom cabinets and skin-care routines. These are the products Skincare.com’s editors can’t live without this April.
Lindsey, Content Director
As a beauty editor, I know the importance of using an antioxidant serum daily. (They help protect the skin against free radical damage that can lead to signs of premature aging.) But many of the vitamin C serums I’ve tested either have a distinct smell that instantly turns me off from using them or they pill under the rest of my skin-care products. This one, made with 15 percent pure vitamin C doesn’t do either, and it has hyaluronic acid in it, too, which helps keep my dry skin hydrated throughout the day — win-win.
Minou, Growth Strategist
I used to use gel face lotion for moisturizer every day, but I wanted to try a new product that had a similar consistency. I’m so glad I found this one because I love how it works to prep my skin softly before makeup, and the fact that it’s oil-free and feels weightless.
Hannah, Graphic Designer
I’ve been in the market for an everyday sunscreen I can wear over or under makeup, and I think I may have found The One. Not only does the Kiehl’s Super Fluid Daily UV Defense sunscreen help protect your skin from UV rays, it also defends against pollution and free radicals. This product is this city girl’s dream.

I'm all about exfoliators lately, and I can't get enough of this new, fruity-scented scrub. It comes in a big size that will last you a long time and will leave your skin feeling super soft.
Alanna, Associate Editor
Getting me to love a fragrant body scrub isn’t an easy feat because I gravitate toward more subtle smelling shower products in general. That’s why I’ve surprised myself by choosing this one as a favorite this month. I actually really love it — coconut fragrance and all! Plus, its texture is gritty but moisturizing and just feels like heaven every time I use it.
Tembe, Associate Editor
Finding a mineral sunscreen that doesn’t leave my skin with a white cast is challenging, to say the least. And although there are tinted options abound, some are still too light, while others are chalky, thick and leaves something to be desired. When the Bare Republic Tinted Mineral Sunscreen I was cautiously optimistic — I was a fan of the original tinted formula, but found it left my skin looking a little ashy. This one promised sheerer coverage and an easy-to-spread formula, two of the biggest asks on my list. Happily, this product performs and is now my go-to for everyday wear. I can use a good amount without worrying about looking ashy after and feel properly protected from UVA and UVB rays.
Jessica, Assistant Editor
Considering I love Summer Fridays Overtime Mask, I knew I was going to fall head-over-heels for this new beauty. Maybe it's the fact that spring is just around the corner, but I can't get enough of this rose-infused mask. The two-in-one product helps buff away dead skin cells for a brighter-looking complexion, while the mix of natural oils restores and hydrates. The antioxidant-rich blend of vitamin C, rose flower powder, and argan, sesame, avocado and grapeseed oils leave you with a natural rosy glow within seconds of washing it off. Oh, and it looks amazing sitting out on my vanity.
