As a beauty editor, I’ve seen and tested more than my fair share of revolutionary beauty products that promise far-reaching results. Before you slag me off as being hateful and jaded, know that I actually do like most of the products I try out but there are some that stand (far) above the rest. However, don’t just take my word for it — these beauty and skincare products are tried and true faves of folks around the world and are definitely worth the hype.
Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream
They don’t call it magic for nothing! This wonderous face cream from Charlotte Tilbury is beyond worth the hype. The award-winning product was created to help the models at Fashion Week revive their tired skin and it became so popular, CT had to bottle it. The formula works effortlessly to not only hydrate and plump the skin, but also brightens the skin, evens skin tone and protects from blue lights, and more. If there’s one face cream you buy, you’ll want it to be this one!
Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask
If chapped lips have got you down, then don’t waste another minute without the Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask. Available in different scents, this thick and rich lip balm feels amazing on the lips and hydrates them unlike anything I’ve ever experienced. While it’s best applied before bed so you can wake up with soft, kissable lips, I like to apply it throughout the day for even extra hydration.
Armani Beauty Luminous Silk Perfect Glow Flawless Oil-Free Foundation
Believe me, I love a full face of makeup but that doesn’t necessarily mean I want it to look like I have a full face on. Natural-looking, even skin is the vibe we’re after this summer and the foundation to help you achieve it is the Luminous Silk Foundation by the iconic Armani Beauty. The foundation comes in a wide assortment of shades and it leaves a stunning, glowy finish. It’s no wonder that it’s a fave of beauty bloggers everywhere.
Christophe Robin Purifying Scalp Scrub
It’s a known fact that we shouldn’t be washing our hair too often so if you, like me, wash yours just two days a week, then it’s likely you need some extra help getting it clean. Enter this scalp scrub from Christophe Robin. It may sound weird to apply what feels like a body scrub to your scalp but trust me — the exfoliation will give you the cleanest feeling hair and scalp you’ve ever experienced. A little goes a long way and it truly works wonders.
Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Extra Strength Daily Peel
If you’ve read my beauty articles before, then you are probably aware that I mention these Dr. Dennis Gross Peel Pads basically all the time but it’s because they work so freaking well. Since facials at the spa have been put on hold due to COVID, these peel pads have been saving the skin of many thanks to the blend of seven acids that slough off dead skin, help reduce fine lines, prevent wrinkles, and reveal brighter and more even-looking skin. I use them every single day and the results are almost too good to be true.
Le Labo Santal 33
While there are many choices when it comes to fragrances, one that’s super popular and is showing no signs of slowing down is Santal 33 by Le Labo. The warm and woodsy scent is intoxicatingly beautiful and just wafts so softly into the room and has the power to make your head turn. Its price point might make you shed a single tear but it lasts for hours on the skin so just one quick spritz will be more than enough to make an impact.
Fresh Soy Face Cleanser
If you’re in search of a cleanser with a can-do, do-it-all attitude, then the Fresh Soy Cleanser should be at the top of your shopping list. The best-selling cleanser foams into a gorgeous texture and once rinsed off, leaves the skin feeling clean, refreshed, and never tight or dry. Plus the cool cucumber scent is everything we want this summer!
Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant
Thought exfoliators couldn’t used daily? Well, most can’t but the iconic Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant can because it’s so gentle but don’t mistake it for being puny. Simply shake out some of the powder, mix with water and apply in circular motions to the whole face and down your neck. You can customize the strength with the amount of water you use so if you’re in the mood for a good scrub use less water or more for a more gentle polish.
Tata Harper Resurfacing Mask
At first glance, you might wince at the price of this Tata Harper Resurfacing Mask but I implore you to trust me and give it a try. The gorgeous jar will look amazing on your vanity, what’ll look better are the stellar results. Folks everywhere rave about how radiant and bright the skin looks even after just one use. If you have skin on the sensitive side, then give the brand’s new Radiance Mask a try which is specially formulated for sensitive and reactive skin but promises similar results.
Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner
Emotions are very much running high this year but one thing that shouldn’t be running is your eyeliner. This liquid liner from Stila has been a fave of many for years as its formula stays put, doesn’t smudge, and is easy AF to apply.
