Simply put, it’s our job to find the best beauty products out there for you. From the
newest serum to the hottest lipstick color to the dry shampoo that will change your life, we will find it, test it, and let you know what we think. We’re not complaining. It’s a pretty fun gig, and we’ll volunteer to be beauty guinea pigs any day.
But one of the cool things to come out of this is finding out what products
you’re loving and buying. It helps us figure out what you want to learn more about and what you’re into so we can bring even more personalized recs to you.
Because we share a lot of our favorites with you every single day, we recognize it might be hard to keep up. So we’ve decided to put together a handy weekly list of what we love and what you love—consider this a CliffsNotes, one-stop-shop of what’s really trending and worth adding to your cart at this very moment.
This week, I’m sharing the products that keep my skin hydrated and smooth from head to toe. Plus, you’ll find some recs from our editors and readers. Do you have a product that we missed? We’d love to know. Send us a
My skin is prone to dryness, so a lot of toners can dry my skin out. This one does the opposite because it’s formulated specifically for dry, eczema-prone skin. It contains hyaluronic acid, vitamins C and E, and borage-seed oil to target dehydration and the signs of aging.
I keep this product in my everyday cleanser rotation. I love that it has exfoliating properties to slough off dead skin and smooth and that I really don’t have to use an extra exfoliator most days.
Versed’s face oil was my first foray into the world of face oils, and I’m forever grateful and loyal to it. Whenever my skin is super parched, I like to apply this after washing my face so it sinks it quickly. Then, I apply a moisturizer for extra hydration.
Just about every dermatologist I’ve ever interviewed has told me about the importance of including a retinol in your routine. It promotes cell turnover and growth and can help smooth fine lines and wrinkles. This one from Kate Somerville is gentle and moisturizing enough for me to use it daily.
I will always recommend this hydrating and plumping serum to anyone with dry skin. The gel consistency is weightless and cooling. I just say “aah” every time I apply it. It does a great job of soothing and smoothing parched skin.
Again, this is another formula I will recommend until the end of time. It’s another gel product that I’m pretty much obsessed with. It feels so light and refreshing, and it’s pretty much heaven if you apply it to skin that is super angry and irritated.
When I need more exfoliation, I turn to this treatment from Kate Somerville. It’s both a chemical and mechanical exfoliant with lactic acid, salicylic acid, and silica. It doesn’t leave your skin dried out, either. It’s infused with soothing aloe vera, honey, and vitamin E.
I like to use a face mask at least once a week to keep my skin smooth and ward off any dryness. This overnight mask pretty much does everything I want it to—hydrates, plumps, and brightens. Ingredients include vitamin C, superberries, squalane, and hyaluronic acid.
You can’t forget about your lips! Applying this lip mask once or twice a week ensures that my lips stay silky smooth.
And if you need a little bit more help with getting rid of flaky skin on your lips, a scrub will come in handy. This one from Fresh gets the job done. Plus, it has nourishing and natural ingredients like brown-sugar crystals, shea butter, and jojoba oil.
The skin around my eyes can get so dry and flaky, too, so I like to use this Creamy Eye Treatment for the under-eye area. Not only does it moisturize, but it also brightens dark circles and de-puffs.
To make sure my skin stays soft and smooth, I need to have a deeply moisturizing cream in my skincare routine. This one from Tatcha is not too thick or greasy and does a good job of hydrating and plumping the skin.
I was introduced to these peel packettes by my fellow Who What Wear editors, and I now owe them for this amazing discovery. The two-step system exfoliates and smooths the skin while also reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and enlarged pores. What more can you ask for? You can use these daily, but I like to use them a few times a week.
Jergens’s body lotion is a total classic, and it’s a fixture in my bathroom vanity. It leaves my skin moisturized and softer. I really can’t complain about this affordable product.
This body polish is so luxe. It has pink clay to detoxify the skin, Moroccan rose to fight any damage, and coconut oil proteins to refresh the skin. I love that it works for sensitive skin, too.
I like to apply an exfoliating body lotion to my skin once in a while when I don’t want to use a body scrub. This one contains 17.5% glycolic acid to even texture and leave the skin glowy.
When I want silky and glowy skin, I apply Mutha’s body oil. I like to include it in my prep routine when I’m getting ready for a night out. It makes me feel and look so good. It’s also pretty awesome that it’s made with botanical ingredients.
This luxurious and decadent cream is on my wish list. The fast-absorbing cream softens and conditions the skin while restoring its elasticity. Plus, its scent just sounds absolutely delicious—it has notes of vanilla, salted caramel, and pistachio.
Fur’s Silk Scrub is my usual body exfoliator. I use it about two to three times a week. It contains jojoba as a mechanical exfoliant, so it’s gentle and doesn’t irritate the skin. It’s also got chemical exfoliants such as glycolic and lactic acids.
A lot of Who What Wear editors are fans of Nécessaire’s body lotion—and for good reason. It’s fast absorbing and is just packed with nourishing ingredients like niacinamide; vitamins A, B3, C, and E; omegas 3 and 9; and antioxidants. For my sensitive-skin types, you’ll be happy to know it’s fragrance-free. Next, This Holy-Grail Ingredient Targets Acne, Rosacea, Fine Lines, and Wrinkles
