La Roche-Posay Toleriane Double Repair Moisturizer UV
The good-for-your-skin bacteria promote a healthy microbiome, a.k.a. the micro-organisms that live on top of the skin, and are responsible for a strong skin barrier.
To put it in simpler terms, a healthy microbiome equals a healthy skin barrier equals healthy skin. This moisturizer delivers all that as well as your daily dose of sun protection, all in a fast-absorbing, non-greasy formula.
Becca First Light Priming Filter
Becca continues to nail the luminous/glowy/gorgeous skin game, and their latest launch is no exception. The purple-hued primer (don’t worry, it goes on sheer) brightens, evens out imperfections, and makes your complexion look, in one word, amazing.
It has enough of a skin-perfecting effect that you can totally skip makeup, though like any good primer, it also prolongs the wear of any products you layer on top.

The fresh rose scent and pretty pink color would be reason enough to use it, but this skin-saver isn’t just about appearances. As hydrating as a balm—though not quite as heavy—it maintains the balance of your skin’s hydrolipidic layer, a protective film made up of sweat, sebum, and water.
First Aid Beauty Hello FAB 3 in 1 Superfruit Color Correcting Cushion
Happily, in this compact all the corrective tints are swirled together in one handy cushion: green to neutralize redness, pink to even skin tone, and purple to brighten. And it’s not just about pretty pigments; added superfruit extracts (dragon fruit, blueberry) improve tone and soothe irritation.
L’Oréal Paris Extraordinary Clay Pre-Shampoo Mask
There are clay masks a-plenty for your face, so why not for your hair? Ideal for anyone with oily roots (hand-raising emoji goes here), massage this onto your scalp and leave on for five minutes before showering to let three different clays absorb any trace of excess oil.
When rinsed out, roots are refreshed and ends are visibly softer. It may just be the thing that finally lets you go a day without shampooing.
Shiseido Synchro Skin Glow Luminizing Fluid Foundation SPF 20
A foundation that knows your skin better than you do? Yes, please. Thanks to special “sensing technology,” this foundation gets majorly in sync with your complexion, adjusting throughout the day as oil levels in your skin change to maintain a consistently gorgeous glow.
The lightweight formula also delivers a heavy-hit of hydration (eight hours-worth, to be exact), with glycerin and hyaluronic acid.
PCA Skin Dual Action Redness Relief
An instant fix for stressed out skin, you can practically hear your complexion sigh with relief when you slather on this soothing gel.
Ingredients like niacinamide and bisabolol (from chamomile) calm redness and inflammation, while ceramides strengthen the skin barrier to prevent future irritation. Try it after any kind of skin treatment—peel, laser, overly aggressive facial—or anytime your face just needs a little extra TLC.
Ouai Dry Shampoo Foam
Our #girlcrush Jen Atkin has done it again. This time by totally revolutionizing dry shampoo. Forget powders and sprays, this formula is a full-on foam (you could easily mistake it for a mousse).
It takes a second to get used to the feeling of applying a dry shampoo that’s not, well, dry, but all you have to do is massage it through your roots until it disappears, taking all traces of oil and grime with it. And if you ever OD on another styler, a squirt of this will remove any excess so that you can start over without having to wash your hair.
