Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex II
Best Serum: For all skintypes, Estee Lauder's moisturizing nightly serum will not only reverse the damage caused by environmental stressors, but will visibly limit and repair any signs of aging.
Philosophy Resurface The Microdelivery Dual-Phase Peel
Best Facial Peel: This is a dual-phase microdelivery peel that resurfaces and then replenishes. Before you worry that a peel means it will wreck havoc on your skin, this is more of an exfoliating process that will unclog pores and leave skin velvety soft with regular (but not too much!) use.
Dr. Brandt Microdermabrasion Skin Exfoliant
Best Exfoliator: Skip a pricey trip to the dermatologists office for a microdermabrasion treatment and give Dr. Brandt's at-home alternative a whirl—no equipment necessary. Use it just once a week (or more, but never more than three times a week) for a noticeable improvement in texture and brightness.
Clarins Toning Lotion with Chamomile
Best Toner: We love this toning lotion because it's formulated without alcohol—an ingredient that's often included but ends up drying skin out. Use it between cleansing and moisturizing to soothe, calm and soften your skin.
Bite Beauty Agave Lip Mask
Best Lip Treatment: Bite Beauty's lip mask is made from natural ingredients and is so good that even those with psoriasis have said it's helped them find relief. One coat will keep your lips moisturized for hours, and it's especially nice as an overnight lip mask.
Peter Thomas Roth Therapeutic Sulfur Masque Acne Treatment Masque
Best Face Mask: If you struggle with blemishes, Peter Thomas Roth's mask will attack the source of breakouts thanks to its 10% sulfur formulation. Pro-tip: You can also use this as a spot treatment method for even the worst of cystic acne.
DHC Deep Cleansing Oil
Best Cleanser: This cleansing oil is DHC's most popular product worldwide. Why? It removes grime but leaves your skin soft to the touch rather than stripping it of your natural nourishing, moisturizing properties like so many other harsh cleansers. It's a whiz at removing makeup too.
Shiseido Benefiance WrinkleResist24 Intensive Eye Contour Cream
Best Eye Cream: Shiseido does it all with this eye cream, targeting "five types of visible eye area wrinkles," i.e., crow's feet, corner creases, under eye wrinkles, lid creases and vertical wrinkles. It's immensely hydrating and excellent for those with severely dry or sensitive skin.
Origins High Potency Night-A-Mins Mineral-Enriched Renewal Cream
Best Night Cream: Finally, a clear winner for those with combination skin. Kiss dullness and uneven texture goodbye and benefit from vitamins C and E. Bonus? It smells like a dream as you're falling asleep.
No7 Protect & Perfect Intense Day Cream SPF 15
Best Day Moisturizer: All good skin starts with preventative measures and a regular helping of SPF. No7 goes on smoothly and will also soften the appearance of lines while it keeps future wrinkles at bay with SPF 15. Just don't forget to reapply!
