Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Glotion

First, glycolic and lactic acid gently exfoliate; next, caffeine tightens and hyaluronic acid hydrates; then willow-bark extract creates a smooth canvas for tanning agent DHA. More requests? We didn’t think so.

Sarah Potempa Beachwaver S1

Spinning electronic devices near the hair sounds like trouble, no? That’s what you might think until you try this self-rotating barrel. Hair smoothly wraps around the ceramic wand, making defined curls or loose waves. Two speeds, an adjustable temperature gauge, and arrows to control direction eliminate burns and impatience.

WINNER 2015

Rita Hazan Weekly Remedy

Hair always looks happiest the day it gets colored, mostly because stylists break out the big-gun conditioners to minimize the damage of dyes. This duo—a cuticle-opening blend, allowing for deeper penetration of hydrators, followed by amoisturizing rice protein—replicates that same effect,only at home on a weekly basis.

Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Daily Glow Moisture

This slow-developing self-tanner is as helpful to skin as real tans are harmful. With glycolic acid, moisture-sealing phospholipids, and pore-clearing willow bark extract in the mix, it’s no wonder Dr. Gross nicknamed it "Glotion."

Murad Invisiblur Perfecting Shield SPF 30 PA+++

Some sunscreens claim to be invisible, but, well ... they’re not. Murad is so confident about its claim that the formula actually comes in a transparent vial. But sunscreen is just the start. Peptides encourage collagen production, while black currant and rosemary improve overall texture.

Serge Normant Dream Big Instant Volumizing Spray

Like a push-up bra for lackluster strands, this translucent blend of polymers and white lupine protein lifts, plumps, and perks. Even better, unlike most volumizers that have to go on sopping strands, this one is meant for dry ones.

Remington 3-in-1 Styler

The cords of your flatiron, curler, and dryer shouldn’t resemble Clark Griswold’s Christmas lights. This multitasker can help you declutter. Two detachable sleeves—one rounded, one studded with spikes—transform this straightener into a curler and a volumizer. But here’s the thing: All three functions actually work, meaning you can be Gisele one day and Ariana Grande the next.

Fresh Sugar Rosé Tinted Lip Treatment SPF15

This best-selling balm (available in eight shades) might be the sweetest treat of the company's beloved Sugar collection.

Made with real sugar (which helps to retain moisture, FYI), it tastes delicious, naturally.
