Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Freeze
As its name implies, this Anastasia Beverly Hills product will freeze your brow hairs in place, not allowing them to budge or stray all day long, but without the stiff feel that often comes with other feathered brow products. The styling wax has a unique texture, somewhere between a gel and pomade, that allows it to provide extreme hold for hours. “It’s not tacky,” one reviewer shares. “It doesn’t make me feel my eyebrows on my face. But most importantly, it doesn’t flake and look like I have eyebrow dandruff, like most of the heavy-duty brow gels. It’s an all-around great product.”
Supergoop! Unseen Sunscreen
Find that most sunscreens leave a white cast behind? Try this innovative clear gel formula from Supergoop!, which acts as a makeup primer, too, imparting a velvety finish. The broad-spectrum SPF 40 not only protects from both UVA and UVB rays, but also blue light emitted from phones and computers. “It leaves absolutely no trace on the skin and is really comfortable to wear, one reviewer writes. “I love that it smooths out my skin texture and provides a slight glow, so it’s great as a primer as well. Definitely recommend getting this, it’s worth the hype.”
Editor’s Testing Note: This is the sunscreen for people who hate sunscreen. It has no scent, doesn’t feel “goopy” and it is completely transparent. I’ve even gotten my ever-picky boyfriend to start wearing it while we’re at the beach or playing soccer.
iS Clinical Cleansing Complex
Have you checked out Amazon’s Professional Beauty section? The well-curated and certified authentic category highlights professional, often dermatologist-created brands that traditionally could only be found in dermatology offices and spas. Among the selection, you’ll find a variety of brands that pros rely on, like iS Clinical, Glytone, Obagi and more.
Speaking of really well done, this iS Clinical cleansing gel is a dream for any and all skin types. It simply cleanses the skin effectively, without stripping the natural barrier and drying out essential oils, which is a task many cleansers cannot accomplish. One reviewer notes that a little goes a long way with this cleanser, so it will last much longer than you expect. “It doesn’t dry out my skin but has that clean feeling that makes you feel so fresh,” the reviewer writes. “My face has never felt so amazing and I don’t think I’ll ever use another face wash again.”
Obagi Hydrate Facial Moisturizer
While we’re on the topic of Amazon’s Professional Beauty section, check out Obagi. The dermatologist-created brand has been around for decades. Thankfully, the Hydrate Facial Moisturizer is becoming popular because it’s glorious. It’s lightweight yet super hydrating and is a universal fit for almost all skin types. “I love this moisturizer,” one reviewer writes. “It goes on velvety and absorbs beautifully. I’ve been using this with the Obagi system for 11 years now. I’m 66 and people tell me my skin looks great.” (The reviewer included a picture with her review and can confirm she’s glowing.)
Tatcha The Dewy Skin Cream
Tatcha is a celebration of Japanese beauty, and this bestselling Dewy Skin Cream is a celebration for your skin. It’s one of the softest, most hydrating and universally beloved moisturizers you’ll ever try. The rich, antioxidant-packed formula is ideal for anyone and everyone, but particularly those with drier skin or in harsh, colder weather. “I’ve tried so many other face moisturizers and this is by far the best ever,” one reviewer says. “It’s worth the price.”
Editor’s Testing Note: One member of the WWD Shop team swears by Tatcha’s Dewy Skin Cream as a lightweight solution to hydrate dry skin without that super heavy cream feeling.
