CHANEL LE CRAYON LÈVRES LONGWEAR LIP PENCIL

They say: A “sen­so­rial” for­mula from the French brand that of­fers semi-matte colour that can last all day. The pencil lip prod­uct comes with a Chanel sharp­ener and a mini brush tip on one end for smooth­ing and blend­ing.

We say: These lip pen­cils de­liver on the prom­ise of long-last­ing wear. Our tester was im­pressed with how pig­mented the lip prod­ucts went on, and how well they stayed in place through­out the day. Even with reg­u­lar snacks and sips while work­ing from home.

MONAT BE BAL­ANCED FOAMY CLEANSER

They say: A face cleanser that re­moves oils while con­di­tion­ing with 24 hours of hy­dra­tion. Ideal for nor­mal and com­bi­na­tion skin types, the prod­uct “gen­tly cleanses im­pu­ri­ties and en­vi­ron­men­tal el­e­ments while soft­en­ing and com­fort­ing skin.”

We say: This thick, creamy cleanser leaves skin feel­ing soft and smooth, with­out feel­ing stripped. A lit­tle dol­lop goes a long way. Our tester used this as part of her dou­ble-cleans­ing rou­tine and was pleased with how it washed away the day’s dirt and im­pu­ri­ties.

CODAGE HAND CREAM

They say: A lux­u­ri­ous hand cream from the French brand Codage Paris that fea­tures antarc­tic gly­co­pro­tein and or­ganic shea but­ter along with aloe vera and niaci­namide to nour­ish, mois­tur­ize and pro­vide “anti-ag­ing” ben­e­fits.

We say: This hand cream has a light, pleas­ant scent and a thick con­sis­tency. With­out leav­ing a greasy residue, the for­mula pro­vides an in­stant hit of hy­dra­tion that soothed our tester’s fre­quently washed and san­i­tized hands.
