It’s a brand new month, which means that new products are making their way onto store websites and shelves and into our medicine cabinets. These are the products Skincare.com’s editors can’t live without this November.

CeraVe Skin Renewing Eye Cream

This sensitive skin-friendly, multitasking eye cream is formulated with ceramides, niacinamide and hyaluronic acid (three of my all-time favorite skincare ingredients) to deeply moisturize the delicate area under the eyes, as well as help reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and dark circles. It’s even infused with caffeine to help address puffiness. It has a lightweight consistency, making it ideal for layering under concealer, too. 

Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Must Haves Holiday Skincare Set 

This holiday skincare set includes two full-size products from the cult-favorite Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery line — the Midnight Recovery Concentrate and the Midnight Recovery Omega-Rich Cloud Cream. My suggestion is to pair it with a silk pillowcase and some cute pajamas for the perfect beauty sleep-themed gift this holiday season.

L'Oreal Paris Sublime Bronze Facial Tanning Drops

Not only does wintertime call for major hydration when it comes to my skin, it also calls for a little help in the glow department. To brace my skin for winter, I love to opt for a facial self-tanner to help me ward away dullness. These drops from L’Oréal Paris are my absolute favorite: they give me a healthy, natural radiance and also majorly hydrate my dry areas with hyaluronic acid. I can’t go a winter without these, and I don’t think you’ll be able to either!

Starface Hydrocolloid Black Stars

I’m always a huge fan of hydrocolloid patches when I have breakouts — they help to calm and soothe inflamed pimples with ease. This new black edition of the beloved Starface acne patches not only help get this job done, they also look super cute whether you’re wearing them out and about or to bed!

Youth to the People Superberry Hydrate + Glow Dream Oil

When the weather starts to cool down, oils become an indispensable part of my routine. I love using this lightweight formula as the final step of my nighttime skincare routine because it locks in moisture and gives my dry, sensitive skin a radiant glow. It’s rich with antioxidants and fatty acids, which help make my skin feel soft and smooth.

Osmosis Beauty Superfood Lip Oil

In addition to facial oils, I love a good lip oil. I reapply this one constantly because of the refreshing peppermint scent and the easy-to-use doe-foot applicator. I appreciate that this formula is on the thicker side, similar to a gloss, because it makes it last longer and doesn’t feel oily on my lips. I use the clear shade, so I can swipe it over bare lips or any of my favorite lip colors.

L’Oréal Revitalift 12% Pure Vitamin C + E + Salicylic Acid Serum

Combating early signs of aging has become one of my skincare goals this year, and this serum works to do just that. It helps to even out your skin tone and minimize the appearance of pores and fine lines. I like that it’s hydrating without feeling too greasy, which is one of my serum pet peeves.



Trishna, Assistant Editor

Lancôme Absolue Rose 80 Toner

With rose water and salicylic acid, this toner is my holy grail skincare product for this month (and, I expect, many months to follow). The formula is silky and soothing, and after using it for just a few days, I noticed softer, smoother and glowier skin.
