Those looking to up their retinoid game will appreciate that this serum contains an impressive 6.5 percent blend of retinoids and retinoid-like botanicals for smoother, clearer skin. And those botanicals (namely hawaiian white honey, bisabolol, ginger, and prickly pear cactus) don’t just deliver wrinkle fighting benefits; they also help reduce the appearance of the redness, flaking, and other less-than-pretty side effects that can often accompany such a potent retinoid. So much so, that it didn’t even irritate our super sensitive skin.

We highly doubted anything could rival the Hourglass Vanish Seamless Finish Foundation Stick…but then this newbie came around. Not only does it somehow strike the unicorn-like balance of being totally light in texture while still being a full coverage formula, it also features unique coated pigments that deliver said full coverage with just a half pump of product. Couple that with waterproof, fade-proof, 24-hour wear, and an extensive range of 32 shades and you’ve got yourself one ace of base.
