Why crowd your bag with a bunch of products when you can just add this 3-in-1 shea butter instead? This butter is great for the skin, lips and hair. Its long list of benefits includes moisturizing dry skin, nourishing hair, protecting lips, soothing breakouts and fading stretch marks. And thankfully, this bundle lets you try all four combinations: 100 percent shea butter, all-natural shea butter, essence of lavender and essence of grapefruit.
This is not your average exfoliating tool. Inspired by the beauty rituals of Moroccan women, this skincare tool is meant to relax your body, feet and face. Known as the Mihakka, it’s handcrafted and covered in organic cotton to feel gentle on the skin. Use the flat surface for dry (or wet) exfoliation, cleansing and lymphatic drainage.
With a combination of chemical and physical exfoliation, this mask promises a brighter complexion. Its ingredients (i.e. lactic acid, kaolin clay and sugar cane) remove dead skin cells, clear pores and improve your natural glow. Apply as a daily scrub or a weekly mask and watch it become your go-to facial right at home.
This face oil aims to even your skin tone, fade blemishes and reduce the appearance of fine lines. The formula (featuring immortelle oil, carrot seed oil and squalene) is no stranger to increasing collagen, balancing oil production and smoothing the skin. Add two to three drops daily for an instant glow.
Here’s your sign to get into the Gua Sha game. The quartz stone is filled with skincare benefits to brighten, firm and tone skin. Add your go-to oil or serum and go to town on relieving tension on your face.
When “glow to go” is in the name, expect a luminous finish before you head out the door. Pick between five masks dedicated to any skincare concerns–from dryness to blemishes. Try the Dawn Face Mask that features mandelic acid to exfoliate, smooth and refresh skin. Or, the Bright Eye Hydrating Mask that hydrates and brightens the under-eye. Whatever day you’re having, just pop a mask on for 15 to 20 minutes, remove it and massage the remaining serum in for maximum coverage.
SPF with a side of shimmer? Please and thank you. This mineral-based body highlighter enhances your natural glow while keeping your skin protected from the harsh rays. Choose between “Golden Angel” (compliments light to olive skin tones) or “Bronze Goddess” (matches well with olive to dark skin tones) for a radiant finish.
This body oil combines soothing ingredients (like coconut oil, Kakadu plum and amla oil) to brighten, firm and nourish your skin. It also includes a rose-filled combination that fights against acne, maintains elasticity and overall calms irritated areas. Whether you use it as a daily moisturizer or indulge in a self-massage once a week, expect your body to be rejuvenated and restored.
This rescue serum is ready to say goodbye to dull skin. Its key ingredients–vitamin C, elderberry extract and squalane–provides an instant glow, a boost of hydration and overall smoother complexion. Plus, if you don’t want to take our word for it, Debra Messing is a big fan of the hydrating serum.
This face sunscreen is doing more than just protecting you from the sun. It also acts as a primer and color corrector, so you can wear it as a daily moisturizer or to prep your makeup look. Its soothing formula features zinc oxide, titanium dioxide, shea butter and beeswax, to name a few. Plus, it comes in two shades (Light/Medium and Medium/Dark) to compliment all skin tones.
This mask is no joke in the brightening and firming department. It’s designed to remove dead skin cells, repair damage and smooth skin’s texture. The glycolic acid, pumpkin enzymes and vitamin C mix will tone and tighten your skin in no time. So, apply a thin layer at least twice a week and let the treatment go to work.
If you’re in need of a hydrating boost, this daily cream can get the job done. The soothing formula features shea butter, cocoa butter, jojoba oil and beeswax for a smooth and plumped finish. Aside from nourishing your skin, the cream also improves elasticity and dullness.
This face mist is a great start to your day. It’s formulated with neroli oil, witch hazel and aloe vera, among other hydrating ingredients. The blend restores the skin’s pH balance, boost hydration and lock in moisture from the rest of your skincare steps. You can spritz after cleansing or use it to set your makeup for a dewy finish. You can never go wrong with a refresh every once in a while.
