Discover our picks, ahead.

EWC Brightening Ingrown Hair Serum

Editors Picks
European Wax Center

I've gotten so many Brazilian waxes in my lifetime, that at this point, I can be checking emails and responding to texts or Slacks while the esthetician does her thing. Couple that with the fact that I have a high pain tolerance, and I can easily say that the wax itself is the least of my concerns. But dealing with the ingrowns that can pop up afterward? It's gonna be a no for me, dawg. Luckily, EWC's (my favorite wax brand!) Ingrown Hair Serum immediately relieves irritation, and offers a gentle blend of vitamin C and glycolic acid in the formula to exfoliate and brighten skin over time. Whether you get a regular wax every four weeks or just once in a while, it's a must-have. — Kayla Greaves, Executive Beauty Editor

Gucci L'Obscur Lengthening Mascara

Editors Picks
Gucci/ InStyle

Somehow, despite its vintage-inspired pink-and-gold tube, I've only recently tried Gucci's mascara for the first time —and I was wrong for sleeping on it for so long. The formula offers long, fluttery lashes with a natural, clump-free finish. But you can also build it up for a dramatic clumpy look, if that's your thing. I love the flexible silicone brush for getting every single lash (even at the inner corners), and most importantly, it doesn't smudge or flake. — Erin Lukas, Beauty Editor

Triviso Frizz Smacker

Editors Picks
Triviso

I'm constantly on-the-go, but especially during the summer when my social calendar fills up and I only go home to sleep. As such, I need beauty products I can take with me to keep my face and hair looking fresh — and this flyaway serum is key. The wand is similar to that of a mascara, and it works by smoothing down frizzy flyaways to keep my hairline and slick updos under control. Plus, I love that the formula isn't sticky or greasy. It just does its jobs and lets me live my best, frizz-free life. — Pia Velasco, Senior Beauty Editor

Megababe Thigh Rescue Anti-Friction Stick

Editors Picks
Megababe

Temperatures are high, and with it, the amount of clothing I wear has shrunk. And as much as I love wearing shorts, skirts, and dresses, though, I hate how my inner thighs feel after a day of chafing. Thankfully, I can always count on Megababe's Thigh Rescue to save the day. The anti-friction stick glides onto my skin smoothly, and the transparent formula creates a silky barrier between my thighs that prevents them from rubbing together. Hot Girl Summer, here I come. — Pia

Philips Sonicare 9900 Prestige Power Toothbrush

Editors Picks
Sonicare

For as much time as we spend brushing our teeth, the majority of us still have a lot of room for improvement — myself included. Enter Philips Sonicare 9900 Prestige, which has now completely changed how I'll brush my teeth probably for the rest of my life (or at least until the next revolutionary invention comes out). The device legitimately adapts to your brushing style, changing intensity when it senses you're applying too much pressure. And a subtle pause in rhythm also lets you know when it's time to switch quadrants. You can also link your brush to the Philips Sonicare app for a personalized guide through your brushing session. As a heavy coffee drinker, (we're talking two to three cups a day) I need all the help I can get. And my teeth have never felt cleaner. — Tessa Petak, Staff Writer

Mizani Wonder Crown

Editors Picks
Mizani

Having a protective style in is both a blessing (in the sense that you don't have to go thru the motions of a full wash day) as well as a curse (thanks to product build-up!). Luckily, one of my go-to haircare brands, Mizani, offers a gorgeous solution that removes flakes — plus whatever else is on the scalp — and leaves nothing else behind. I've used it both on its own and before doing an apple cider vinegar rinse, and believe me, it gets the job done. — Kayla

Kosas Hotliner

Editors Picks
Kosas

Despite this lip liner being packed with hydrating and plumping ingredients like hyaluronic acid, konjac root, and jojoba oil, it doesn't bleed – even if you layer a gloss over it. All six shades are super pigmented and are designed to work well with a number of lipstick shades and skin tones. My go-to is Max, a warm pink beige. When wearing a clear gloss, I like to line my cupid's bow and center of my bottom lip and blend the edges with my fingertip for extra definition. — Erin
