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.
