I recently banished scrubs from my routine in favor of exfoliating creams, peel pads and gentle overnight acids. So when this new glycolic acid product landed on my desk, I couldn’t wait to bring it home. It’s a 10-percent glycolic, which is pretty high for a daily treatment, but it’s blended with a soothing complex to help limit irritation. You apply a pea-sized amount at night, and it stimulates cell turnover to increase radiance and refine texture, and after only a few uses, I’m already starting to notice a difference.

I’m the first one to admit that I’m not exactly great at putting on eye makeup. More mornings than not, I manage to poke my myself in the eye with a mascara wand and smudge black ink all over the place. These super-thin pads have saved me from having to start all over by quickly wiping away any errant product in seconds. They’re powerful enough that I don’t have rigorously rub around my sensitive eye area, either, which makes them a new must-have for my makeup kit.

This gentle exfoliating scrub has been one of my favorites lately thanks to its amazing smell and refreshing feel. I love cleansing my face in the morning with it because after, I feel more awake and ready to take on the day.

Cold temperatures and traveling left my under-eyes as dry as a desert. I decided to test this eye cream I found on Amazon, and I was not disappointed — it feels extremely moisturizing, it’s affordable, and I will absolutely be reaching for it all winter long.

The week before I get my period, my skin is a nightmare, but Glossier Super Pure has saved me time and time again. Whenever I use it, I notice that my breakouts appear less noticeable and my skin feels calmer and more refreshed.
Marisa, Associate Editor
I'm so obsessed with this beauty balm that it's hard for me to put my love for it into words. I wear it before going to bed over O'O Hawaii Golden Nectar Brightening + Firming Serum. When I wake up, my skin looks bright, plump and glowy. Plus, it smells so good (like fruity candy) that I find myself actually craving it by the end of the day.
Alanna, Associate Editor
I’m a big fan of anything watermelon and already love the Watermelon Serum by Milk. That’s why when I heard they were coming out with a corresponding mask, I knew I had to try. I love how gentle this mask feels on my skin and its pretty pink color. I’ve found that its a great to use a prep step before I reach for my foundation.
Tembe, Associate Editor
As a full-time stalker of all things Reddit SkincareAddiction, this is probably the moisturizer I’ve heard referenced the most, which means I absolutely had to get my hands on it. Developed with dermatologists, it offers all-day hydration and three essential ceramides while also being an affordable drugstore buy. I like that it’s thicker than your average moisturizer without feeling too heavy and the fact that it really sinks into my skin. I’m considering this one a holy grail.
