There’s nothing more I love than a makeup setting spray with skincare benefits. Cue: this new formula from NYX that contains hyaluronic acid, electrolytes and vitamins including zinc, aloe, citric acid, biotin and more. Sure, it helps keep makeup in place, but more importantly it hydrates and plumps for fresh, dewy skin that looks just as good without any makeup needed.
A roll-on skincare product is always convenient, but this ingrown hair tonic is that and so much more. It’s infused with salicylic acid, glycolic acid and niacinamide to soothe shaving irritation, prevent razor bumps and ingrown hairs. Because of how easy it is to apply, I can see it easily becoming one of the only ingrown hair products I’ll ever reach for — it’s that good!

One of many small joys is opening my mirrored vanity to see the shiny gold tub of Lancôme’s Absolue Soft Cream glistening at all angles, so you know I have to brag about this limited edition launch. The brand teamed up with Parisian artist Giselle Balbar known for her intricate work layering paper designs. She translated her art into this design featuring Lancôme’s signature rose insignia representative of the exclusive blend of Grand Rose Extracts inside.
Kosi helps repair damage on a cellular level to diminish hyperpigmentation and dullness, while restoring vibrancy to skin tone — aka exactly the mask I need this time of year when my skin starts looking stressed. I adore a good combo of active ingredients and natural ones in my skincare and its multi-functional profile hits the mark: AHA, BHA, PHA, peach kernel oil, jojoba seed oil, glycerin, antioxidant blend and so much more. I feel ready to put my best face forward this spring starting with this mask.

Never in my adult life did I think I would use bar soap on my face, but here we are. This moisturizing pick from Kiehl’s makes my dry, sensitive skin feel super clean without stripping it of its natural oils. While I’m still not giving up my liquid cleanser for good, I love reaching for this on days my skin is particularly red, irritated and sensitive. It’s also a great way to cut down on waste — I love the fact that it has zero plastic, is formulated with less water than a liquid and is made from 99% biodegradable materials.

For the longest time I was under the assumption that toners dried out the skin and were really only necessary for those with acne-prone skin. But this hydrating toner washed away all my preconceived notions. The milky formula features acacia honey, sweet almond oil and hyaluronic acid and provides an instant burst of hydration to my skin. I can feel a major difference in how my other products absorb when I use it, and my complexion has been brighter and bouncier since I introduced it to my routine. Don’t sleep on toners, people!
Skin flare-ups have been near-constant for me this winter — simply stepping outside into the cold, dry air has made my skin freak out on multiple occasions. This cream has been my savior. The clean formula is full of calming ingredients like niacinamide, shea butter, hyaluronic acid and its star ingredient: CBD. My skin instantly feels calmer when I apply this pillowy cream and since I started using it I’ve seen a significant difference in how my skin reacts to the cold weather. I can’t get enough.

After dealing with a bout of bad breakouts recently, my skin has needed some major TLC. To get my out-of-control skin back in order, I turned to this new innovation from SkinCeuticals. This lightweight moisturizer has become my holy grail product for a number of reasons, but mostly for the fact that it single-handedly saved my skin. Formulated with unsung skincare heroes like azelaic acid, alpha arbutin and a botanical blend, this moisturizer corrects redness (which I had a lot of), minimizes the look of pores and works to brighten and smooth the skin. As if it couldn’t get any better, this elixir reduces pore-clogging oil, which, in turn, helps prevent future blemishes from forming, breaking the breakout cycle for good.
