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 highlight the products that our editors can’t and won’t stop talking about. Below, see their top picks for the month of December 2021!
Versed Press Restart Gentle Retinol Serum
“I’ve been on somewhat of a retinol kick lately. From eye creams to lotions, it seems like every skincare product that I’ve been using lately contains the buzzy skin-saving ingredient. At the moment, I’ve been loving this super gentle serum from Versed. Since incorporating it into my nighttime skincare routine, I’ve seen a crazy difference in not only the way my skin looks but also feels. My pores are less noticeable, my skin looks smoother (and feels soft to the touch), and my complexion is so glowy! I highly recommend this product to any newbie retinol users, especially since it’s totally safe to use this daily.” — Camille Nzengung, hair features editor
Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel
“Hydro Boost Water Gel has been the best new addition to my skincare routine. The winter season has dried me out, and this has been the only product to keep my skin feeling hydrated and smooth all day.”— Brittny Pierre, social media editor
Kate Somerville Exfolikate Intensive Pore Exfoliating Treatment
“It’s one of the best exfoliators I have used. It makes my face so soft and glowy. I use it when I feel like I need to give my skin a fresh start. It can be a lot for sensitive skin, so I usually leave it on for a minute instead of two.” — Emily Albrent, creative producer
Gucci Mascara L’Obscur
“After the first application on my lashes, I fell in love. L’Obscur gives my lashes volume and length with a natural look. Plus, there’s never any clumps or smudging.”— B.P.
