As beauty editors, we’re always discovering and trying out fun, new products. While not every hair oil, lipstick, or serum becomes a favorite, the ones that do definitely deserved to be shared with our fellow hair and beauty lovers (i.e. YOU!).
Each month, we’ll be highlighting the products that our editors can’t and won’t stop talking about. Below, see their top picks for the month of August.
Odele Smoothing Shampoo & Conditioner
“I went on vacation this month and needed a travel-size shampoo and conditioner. When browsing the aisles at Target, I came across Odele’s Smoothing Shampoo and Conditioner. I’ve only heard good things about Odele, so I was excited to try them out. And boy, was I impressed! Not only were the mini bottles the perfect size for traveling, but they left me with shiny, soft hair that held up even in the humid air. I will definitely be getting the full sized bottles!” — Emily Lentz, beauty features editor.
“For days when I’m too lazy to whip out one of my eyeshadow palettes and I’m in desperate need of some color on my lids, I always reach for my trusty Glossier Lidstar. Just a swipe of this easy-to-use cream shadow on my lids and a little blending in with my fingers and I’m left with the most stunning shimmering glow. And, if the sheer look isn’t your thing, you can totally build up the shadow for a fun pop of color. I’m partial to the color “Slip”— a super pretty and shimmery baby pink, but honestly I don’t think you can go wrong with any of their eight gorgeous shades. I definitely plan on adding some more colors to my collection!” — Camille Nzengung, hair features editor
Shop: Glossier Lidstar, $18.00
Clairol Professional Shimmer Lights Plex Treatment
“I decided to blonde myself this summer just like all the famous guys in your feed. To get the lift I wanted, I gambled on Clairol Professional’s new Shimmer Lights Plex Lightener, which was actually great. What really impressed me though was their Plex Treatment. Used right after, it claims to “reconstruct bonds.” I gotta tell you, it was deep-conditioning as hell and felt incredible on the scalp. Do yourself a favor and buy a few when you blonde next.” — Jeffrey Lunnen, VP digital content
Versed Day Dissolve Cleansing Balm
“If you’re looking for a product to thoroughly remove makeup, cleanse skin, and leave you with a soft complexion, look no further than Versed’s Day Dissolve Cleansing Balm. It’s truly been a lifesaver for me the last couple of months as I’ve been wearing makeup more often. Not to mention, the balm smells refreshing, doesn’t leave behind any residue and works perfectly as the first step for double cleansing.” — E.L.
