SPRING INTO ACTION
The products we’re coveting now.
1. Travelling? Consider Clarins SOS Hydra Refreshing Hydration Mask ($34) your express route to dewy skin without the need for clumsy sheet-masking. The gel-cream absorbs without a trace, and you won’t be left with a pile of empty beauty packaging. 2. Acne products are hardly ever described as luxurious, but we feel comfortable applying the term to Swiss Line Force Vitale Aqua-Pure Clarifying Serum ($142), an effective combo of exfoliating acids and anti-inflammatories. 3. Canadian designer Erdem Moralioglu is partnering with long-time Fashion Week collaborator NARS Cosmetics for his first-ever beauty collection. The velvety-matte NARS x Erdem Night Garden Eyeshadow Palette
($62) is a standout—as is the floral packaging. 4. NeoStrata has relaunched its top-selling AquaYouth Filling Anti-Wrinkle Cream ($49) with double the hyaluronic acid plus top-of-the-line anti-wrinkle peptide Matrixyl 3000. Slather it on with abandon. 5. A spritz of Aerin Hibiscus Palm Eau de Parfum Spray ($138 for 50 mL) is the next best thing to spending a week in Tulum. BYO guac. 6. Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Nail + Cuticle Serum ($10) gives your nails the same hydrated look as a cuticle oil without any of the actual oil. Excellent for daytime use when you’re worried about staining your new silk blouse or the file you have to hand-deliver. 7. Family-run beauty company Chantecaille is celebrating its 20th anniversary by bringing back six nearly-too-pretty-to-use Philanthropy Cheek Shades ($54 each); each one is embossed with an animal, like the monarch butterfly, and a portion of the proceeds from sales will go toward its conservation.
