EDITORS' PICKJergens Wet Skin Moisturizer
This is the ultimate body lotion for people who hate applying body lotion. After you shower, apply it to damp skin, and it instantly absorbs. There’s no need to rinse; just gently towel off as usual -- and your skin will feel baby-soft all day.
HONORABLE MENTIONL'Occitane Almond Velvet Body Serum
This lightweight body serum does so much more than moisturize. It contains vitamin C to brighten skin, and it smells like the most delicious almond dessert. Plus, it sinks in instantly and can be layered under a heavier cream.
EDITORS' PICKErasa XEP-30 Extreme Line Lifting and Rejuvenation Concentrate
This is the closest to Botox in a bottle we’ve ever seen. It’s smoothing and illuminating, and it fills in lines both immediately and over time. The key ingredient is a neuropeptide derived from cone-snail venom, which really works, as wacky as it sounds.
HONORABLE MENTIONCover FX Custom Infusion Drops
These drops allow you to customize your current skin care routine. Add them to your favorite moisturizer, and it becomes more calming, hydrating, brightening or wrinkle-smoothing. They’re so lightweight you won’t even notice anything different.
EDITORS' PICKTresemmé Beauty-Full Volume Reverse Wash System
This innovative shampoo and conditioner system was designed to be used conditioner first. Hair is transformed from meh to smooth and silky like butta'. It's able to achieve maximum volume and bounce, because using the shampoo second ensures that the conditioner doesn't weigh hair down.
HONORABLE MENTIONKevin Murphy Re.Store Repairing Cleansing Treatment
This stuff is everything. It leaves hair impossibly soft, silky and bouncy, and doesn't weigh it down. It actually feels like it's strengthening your hair, as opposed to just coating it with moisturizers.
