There are days when I need to spackle the world’s thickest concealer under my eyes, and then there are magical days when I just need some glow. This eye cream is great for both. It’s an excellent base for makeup, and if I’m feeling like a true minimalist, it offers just enough of a pretty, peach pick-me-up to make me look fresh. Plus, the texture is delightfully plush and it sinks in like a dream.

“I really look forward to putting on my vitamin C serum every day,” said approximately no one ever. Until now. And that person is me. I love that CeraVe’s new Skin Renewing Vitamin C Serum has a thicker consistency than many antioxidant serums I’ve tried, which makes it feel downright luxurious to apply. And if the texture alone weren’t enough to get me to use it religiously (which it is), the 10% pure vitamin C in the formula certainly would be!

When I look and feel like I need a pick-me-up, my go-to move is to pop on a pair of Wander Beauty Baggage Claim Gold Eye Masks. They not only make me feel relaxed and luxurious, but after ten minutes, they also make my eyes appear fresh!

Leave it to IT Cosmetics to create a neck cream that I can't stop using. I look forward to applying this product every time because it smells so good — like orange Creamsicles. I love that it comes in a big jar that'll last me months, too.

I have been non-stop using this product since I got it a few months back, and it’s completely changed my tanning game for spring. The formula is extremely lightweight and airy, making application really simple (all you have to do is add a few pumps onto a mitt and buff away. With continued use, I actually look like I went on spring break this season even though I haven’t stepped foot outside of the concrete jungle.

I love anything that feels a little science-y when it comes to skin care, so I was thrilled when Dr. Jart+ released microneedling patches designed to address skin’s appearance with just a sticker-like patch. I’m well-versed in the world of acne patches, so I’ve started using those, but I’m excited to try the other offerings like Dark Spot and Dark Circle.
Jessica, Assistant Editor
I've definitely tested my fair share of sheet masks (the obsession is real), but the Vitabrid Dual Brightening & Luminous sheet mask is by far one of my favorites because it feels hydrating on my skin and instantly makes my skin appear brighter. My favorite thing is to put this mask on when my skin needs a little TLC and kick back while the active ingredients work their magic.

I'm a big fan of using anti-aging products as a preventative measure, and this is my fave new eye cream. Usually I reach for the Kiehl's Avocado Creamy Eye Treatment for my everyday wear, but if I'm having a dull-skin day or need a quick color correct, the L'Oréal Paris Eye Brightener is a great solution. (And honestly, I'll use any excuse to incorporate yet another rose-toned product to my regimen.)
