I love experimenting with new beauty and skincare products, but there are some staples I find myself returning to again and again. For example, I can’t count how many times I’ve re-purchased my favorite Bobbi Brown mascara or Fresh lip balms after using every last bit! Along with my year-round staples, I rotate a handful of products from one season to the next, varying them as the needs of my skin and hair change. I’m always curious to learn what beauty products other people swear by, so I asked our team to share their favorites, specifically from the past month. Let us know what yours are too, or if you give any of these products a try!
“I rotate between just a few face masks, since I have a hard time finding options that don’t make me break out. One of my staples is the Summer Fridays Overtime Mask, which uses clean ingredients like pumpkin and apricot seed powder to exfoliate skin and leave it glowing. I reach for this mask weekly year-round, but especially love using it in the fall because of the pumpkin, which makes it smell heavenly.” – Lisa
“I started using Erborian BB Creme in Clair about a year ago and I have been hooked ever since. I wear this lightweight combination of moisturizer, sunscreen, and cover-up daily—a little goes a long way. On the days when I don’t want to wear a full face of makeup, I simply apply this, mascara, and Fresh lip balm, and I’m out the door.” – Margaret
“I am a huge fan of Ilia’s clean ingredients and thoughtfully made products that perform just as well, and often even better, than conventional products. My newest love is the Multi-Stick, which I use as blush and lip color. I have always been a little bit wary of cream blush, but after testing this one, I will never go back! I find that the cream blends right into my moisturizer or foundation, creating a naturally flushed look. I apply this directly onto my cheeks using the stick and then blend it into my foundation with a damp Beauty Blender. I also add a little bit to my lips for the perfect amount of everyday lip color. I use the shade “At Last,” but I’ve been eyeing “A Fine Romance” and “Lady Bird” for fall.” – Annika
“My current favorite beauty product has been part of my daily routine for a few months now. Lancome’s Skin Feels Good Tinted Moisturizer gives the perfect amount of coverage and natural glow. It absorbs into the skin like a moisturizer, highlights all of the right places, conceals every blemish, and gives my skin the perfect amount of color.” – Alexandra
“I have been using the Replenishing Night Cream by goop by Juice Beauty lately and love it. I generally find a lot of night creams to be too thick and heavy on my skin, making them uncomfortable. This cream provides just the right amount of moisture while still letting my skin breathe. The best part is that you only need to use a tiny amount, which makes the jar last a really long time!” – Colleen
Vitamin C Serum
“I moved to Charleston last May and I noticed a difference in my skin right away. After living in Seattle and seeing very little sun for most of the year, I knew I had to get serious about my skin regimen and fast. One of my favorite products is Vitamin C Serum from SkinCeuticals. I saw a difference in fine lines and wrinkles, skin elasticity, and sun damage almost immediately. I use Vitamin C Serum every morning, combined with a few other products for the best results.” – Paige
