Base Coat/Top Coat
-

EDITORS' PICK

Flora 1761 Essential Primer

All of Flora 1761's products are 8-free, which is an especially nice trait in a base coat (it's the first layer on your nails, after all). This quick-drying primer has an easy-to-work with thin texture and it creates such a smooth surface for your polish.

READERS' CHOICE

Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

I have never used a top coat as wonderful as this and it does exactly what it says. It's fast-drying and it keeps colors vivid. I can go for a week without any chipping or fading.

HONORABLE MENTIONS

EDITORS' PICK HONORABLE MENTION

OPI Infinite Shine Gloss

Have a hankering for super shiny nails? This new formulation of the classic fave adds gloss to spare and helps keep your mani safe to boot.

READERS' CHOICE HONORABLE MENTION

OPI Drip Dry Lacquer Drying Drops

I love this product! It makes my nails dry super fast and doesn't mess up the color or finish on my nails at all. You don't need very much for each application so this product goes pretty far.

Body Moisturizer
-

EDITORS' PICK

Nivea Oil Infused Lotion

This lotion is truly the best of both worlds: The creamy, hydrating texture gets an extra jolt of skin-conditioning moisture, thanks to the oil.

READERS' CHOICE

Jergens Ultra Healing Extra Dry Skin Moisturizer

What I love about this lotion is that it goes on smoothly and it doesn't leave your skin feeling greasy or oily. It absorbs very quickly and leaves your skin feeling soft and moisturized.

HONORABLE MENTIONS

EDITORS' PICK HONORABLE MENTION

Glossier Body Hero Daily Perfecting Cream

Ultra-rich and decadently hydrating, this lotion definitely lives up to the hype. You'll also notice some subtle shimmer that nicely boosts your glow. And, of course, Glossier hit it out of the park with the chic minimalist packaging.

READERS' CHOICE HONORABLE MENTION

Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream

I'm happy to try new moisturizers but I always end up returning to Cetaphil cream. My skin is exceptionally dry and nothing soothes and protects like this cream.

Body Wash
-

EDITORS' PICK

Love Beauty and Planet Murumuru Butter & Rose Body Wash

Thanks to its luxurious rose scent and its even more luxurious creamy lather, you'd never guess this baby came from the drugstore aisle. What a winner, especially for dry skin.

READERS' CHOICE

Bath & Body Works Aromatherapy Body Wash & Foam Bath

These are very nice. The scents are very complex and well scented but without being overwhelming. They are also quite moisturizing!

HONORABLE MENTIONS

EDITORS' PICK HONORABLE MENTION

Too Cool for School Coconut Milky Oil Shower Moisturizing Body Wash

Too Cool for School is always true to its name and that's definitely the case with this moisturizing body wash. The coconut scent will transport you straight to the islands and the gentle light lather cleanses without overstripping your skin.

READERS' CHOICE HONORABLE MENTION

Philosophy Pure Grace Shampoo, Bath & Shower Gel

If you're looking for that classic pure soap scent, then this is a great product for you. It smells clean and crisp and a little goes a long way to create a luxurious foaming experience in the shower.

Deodorant

Secret deodorant has gotten an adorable, portable makeover. Tiny, on-the-go deodorant pods are perfect for tossing in your bag and applying whenever you need a little extra freshness.

READERS' CHOICE

Secret Fresh Invisible Solid

This deodorant works very well for me; it keeps me feeling dry all day even if it's super hot and humid out and it gives a nice, subtle scent. I don't apply a lot and it still works. It also doesn't leave any marks on my dark clothing, which is a nice plus.

HONORABLE MENTIONS

EDITORS' PICK HONORABLE MENTION

Schmidt's Charcoal + Magnesium Mineral Enriched Natural Deodorant

Everyone could use a good natural deodorant in their corner and this one's more than capable of getting the job done. The activated charcoal in the formula purifies and absorbs moisture, keeping you smelling fresh all day long.

READERS' CHOICE HONORABLE MENTION

Dove Sheer Fresh Invisible Dry Spray Antiperspirant

True to its claims, this deodorant does not leave white residue (I even tested it by spraying it directly on a black shirt). If you're a fan of Dove's other Dry Spray iterations, this is a no-brainer.

Fragrance

I've used the Schick Quattro ever since it came out in stores. I love the fine wires over the blades, which keep me from cutting or nicking myself. This razor is gentle, smooth and gets every hair.

The classic Venus razor gets a luxurious update with a metal handle that has a pleasant heft to it. It's got everything you love about the regular Venus, plus a space age-sleek new look.

READERS' CHOICE HONORABLE MENTION

Bic Soleil Shine Disposable Razor

These razors are great for the money. You get 5 blades and a few shaves out of each of them. My legs came out smooth and hair-free and my knees were free of the dreaded nicks I so often get.

Hand Lotion
-

EDITORS' PICK

Claus Porto Hand Cream

The luxuriously complex fragrances and photogenic packaging makes this hand cream the perfect gift — but you might be tempted to hoard it all for yourself. The texture is creamy and hydrating yet pleasantly light and it absorbs right away without leaving you with greasy paws.

With a perfectly shaped brush that's just the right amount of firm and a pigmented formula that's full-coverage in one swipe, this nail polish is just about foolproof. You'll have salon-worthy nails in a manner of minutes and, yes, it lives up to its "Insta-Dri" name.

READERS' CHOICE

READERS' CHOICE

Soap & Glory Flake Away Body Polish

This scrub really does away with flakes! It's quite grainy and sloughs off dry skin very well. The smell is heavenly too.

HONORABLE MENTIONS

EDITORS' PICK HONORABLE MENTION

Harper + Ari Exfoliating Sugar Cubes

It doesn't get any cuter than these suger cubes, but don't be fooled: they actually work. The sugar acts as a gentle exfoliant and the shea butter base conditions like you wouldn't believe, so they soften your skin in more ways than one. Plus, the novelty factor is real, officially making this the perfect gift for your hard-to-shop-for friends.

READERS' CHOICE HONORABLE MENTION

The Body Shop Shea Body Scrub

This is the perfect body scrub! It has great scrubbing and exfoliating power but also lots of skin-softening shea butter, so you don't even need to moisturize afterwards — though it doesn't leave your skin greasy, just very soft.

Self-Tanner

Coola Organic Sunless Tan Dry Oil Mist

For the most natural sunless tan, try this easy-to-spray dry oil tanner and rub in. It fades gradually, is hydrating and doesn't leave any hint of streaks.

READERS' CHOICE

This is hands down the best value self-tanner. There is no overwhelming smell, I love the color, the tint to guide and how quickly it dries.

HONORABLE MENTIONS

Feels great going on and soaks into the skin very well. Smells good before and after use, which is rare. Gives a good color all around.

Soap

This bar soap has all the fixings: It lathers like a dream, it conditions as it cleanses and it smells amazing. Its hefty size also makes it a pretty good deal.
