The Pill for Prettier Hair

Your Stretch Mark Savior

Bio-Oil ($15)

Chock-full of natural botanical extracts—think lavender, chamomile, rosemary and more—this does-it-all oil promotes the healing of everything from scars and stretch marks to dry skin (it even tames flyaways) while being supergentle and not the least bit greasy.

The Thin Lip Fix

GrandeLIPS-Hydrating Lip Plumper ($27) 

A full pout is all the rage, and this no-needle-necessary treatment gives a similar look with just a quick swipe of gloss. Feel it tingle as it plumps, leaving thin lips temporarily fuller, but it also works long-term to boost hydration and plumpness over time.
