The Best Exfoliating Mask: Glamglow YouthMud Tinglexfoliate Treatment

For a deep-down clean, nothing leaves skin glowing like this green tea and clay mask.

The Best Long-Lasting Nail polish: CND VINYLUX

This nail polish system (use two coats of color and one coat of the Weekly Top Coat) allows polish to maintain its shine and color for seven days. No base coat is required—the 62 chip-free shades adhere directly to the nail and are removed with acetone. The more the topcoat is exposed to natural light, the more durable it becomes. $10, cnd.com

The Best New Skin Serum: Lancôme DreamTone

This serum, which faintly smells of roses, gives a luminous glow while evening out skin tone with algae extract, lyphohydroxy acid and a hydroquinone derivative. The three formulas (fair, medium and dark) each hone in on a common skin issue: fair corrects redness; medium fights sallowness in olive tones; and dark lightens discoloration from acne. $98, lancome-usa.com
6 / 7
The Best New Moisturizer: Vaseline Spray & Go Moisturizer

No need to wait for your body lotion to dry before getting dressed. This aerosol-based lotion sprays out a light stream of product—you can even hold the can upside down to get to hard-to-reach spots—that absorbs quickly and easily. $8, target.com

“We love that the lightweight 
formula is still powerful enough 
to give long-lasting moisture 
to dry and rough spots.”
