Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye Supercharged Complex Synchronized Recovery
Estee Lauder finally expanded its cult-classic Advanced Night Repair collection. The newcomer to the anti-aging game? This eye cream, which reduces puffiness, as well as the visible damage of lack of sleep and UV, pollution, and blue light exposure.
Ren Evercalm Overnight Recovery Balm
This new nighttime balm is all about strengthening the skin's barrier — this reduces the chances of dryness and irritation that comes along with a lack of moisture.
Murad Revitalixir Recovery Serum
Unfortunately, we live in a pretty stressed society, and that effects show up on our faces. This new serum from Murad works with a blend of smoothing, plumping, and moisturizing ingredients to reduce the appearance of stress-induced symptoms, like lines, puffiness, and dark circles.
Naturally Serious Lip Service 3-In-1 Lip Serum
First and foremost, this lip serum provides moisture to the lips, which in turn plumps and prevents chapped skin. It's other benefit, though, is that it's packed with six antioxidants to protect this thin, delicate skin from environmental agressors.
Dr. Brandt Skincare Radiance Resurfacing Foam
Inspired by dermaplaning, an in-office treatment where dead skin and peach fuzz are sloughed off the surface of the skin, this cream-to-foam mask smooths with powerful (yet gentle) AHAs. After about 60 seconds, you take a no-blade tool and glide it over the skin in an upwards motion. This removes the product and any dead skin, dirt, and debris that's been removed. The last step? Massage in any leftover product and you're set.
Goop G.Tox Glacial Marine Clay Body Cleanser
Make your showers a little bit cleaner this fall with this Gwyneth Paltrow-approved body cleanser. It's made with minerals and oils to cleanse, nourish, and hydrate the skin on your arms and legs.
Summer Fridays Overtime Mask
Based on this mask's superstar ingredient, pumpkin isn't going anywhere this fall, so go ahead and order that #PSL. This clarifying mask uses the power of pumpkin to provide an exfoliating, brightening effect to the skin.
Dr. Dennis Gross DRx SpotLite Blemish Reducer
The future of acne-fighting has arrived. Instead of formulating yet another topical spot treatment, Dr. Dennis Gross tried another approach. He created a handheld FDA-cleared LED device that works to heal pimples, using bacteria-fighting blue light and inflammation-reducing red light. All you have to do is hold the device over clean skin for three minutes — the device will beep and shut-off on its own.
Biore Baking Soda Cleansing Micellar Water Facial Cleanser
Sometimes micellar water just doesn't have enough cleansing power for those with acne-prone or combination skin. Enter: Biore Baking Soda Cleansing Micellar Water Facial Cleanser. It's infused with baking soda, known to provide a deeper clean and provide gentle exfoliation. Saturate a cotton pad and wipe it over your face to remove makeup and excess oil.
Wander Beauty Glow Ahead Face Oil
Finally — Wander Beauty developed a moisturizing and firming face oil that's relatively spill-proof, so you can go ahead and throw it in your bag without having an anxiety attack. The facial oil is actually packaged in a squeezable tube, rather than a traditional bottle. It's also lightweight, so it absorbs fast and layers well with foundation.
Yes to Cucumbers Calming Mask Removing Wipes
You can usually take off a face mask with a warm wash cloth, but what do you do if you haven't touched the laundry in two weeks? Bust out one of these new mask-removing face wipes from Yes To. They're designed with a thicker fabric, which is sturdy enough to wipe away the sloppiest, gloppiest mask out there.
Isdinceutics Melatonik 3-in-1 Night Serum
We all know about the sleep benefits of melatonin, but now it's apparently pretty damn good for your skin, too. Isdin developed a topical melatonin product that works while you sleep. The special ingredient stimulates your skin's natural defenses, making it more prepared to prevent damage and fight off free radicals the next day. It's also combined with a plant-based ingredient called bakuchiol, which has wrinkle-shrinking, retinol-like properties.
Elemis Peptide4 Thousand Flower Mask
This is the mask to buy this fall. It's packed with antioxidants and feels like velvet on your face. The fluffy mousse-like consistency soothes and softens your skin, while providing a milk exfoliation. Bonus: It easily wipes away with a warm cloth.
