Dermalogica Powerbright Dark Spot Peel ($79)

This at-home peel “visibly lifts” surface hyperpigmentation, including UV-induced dark spots, post-blemish marks and melasma for a wide range of skin tones after just five uses, per the brand. In addition, it helps skin look brighter and feel softer and smoother each time you use it.

Clinique Almost Lipstick in Black Honey ($25)

Over four decades after its debut, this cult-classic “almost” lipstick has claimed the top spot as the number-one lip color in the country, according to consumer behavior advisor Circana. Its recent resurgence on TikTok and among Gen Z is a testament to its universally flattering hue and one-of-a-kind formula. Bonus: the whole Clinique brand just launched on Amazon, making it more convenient than ever to shop this legendary lipstick and more.

Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant ($66)

Dermalogica’s popularity continues with this brightening and smoothing exfoliating powder Courteney Cox, Oprah and “makeup superstar” Mikayla Nogueira swear by. (Nogueira credits it as one of five products that “transformed” her skin.) I can personally attest that it’s gentle enough to use everyday to achieve that post-facial glow at home.

Beautycounter All Bright Vitamin C Serum ($90)

The news this month that the Beautycounter brand has “wound down” their business sent shockwaves to consumers. While the brand promises to return as a “new company,” shoppers flocked to Ulta where Beautycounter products are still available—including the brand’s best-selling vitamin C serum.

MERIT Shade Slick Tinted Lip Oil ($24)

Celebrities can’t stop singing the praises of clean beauty brand MERIT, and NewBeauty readers agree it’s worth the hype. A consistent best-seller is Shade Slick, the high-shine, buildable and moisturizing lip oil made with rosehip oil, essential fatty acids, shea butter, grapeseed oils and jojoba oil. Choose between the The Classic shades or The Gelées (pictured here).

MERIT Signature Lip Lightweight Lipstick ($26)

Makeup artists are also all in on MERIT. Specifically, their Signature Lip Lightweight Lipstick, a must-try with its soothing and moisturizing sunflower seed oil, raspberry oil and papaya extract formula. The “Millennial” pink shade with a satin finish, in particular, is one of the most flattering hues.



7 / 10

Herbivore Orchid Facial Oil ($74)

A dermatologist-favorite, this clean facial oil defends against free radicals, supports natural elasticity and contains beneficial vitamins and fatty acids. It’s made with “lush, exotic floral oils” for an instant healthy and dewy glow.



8 / 10

Chanel Chance Eau Fraîche ($172)

If you’re looking for the perfect spring scent, stop here. This woody-floral fragrance is a reimagined version of the original Chance ($172) that launched in 2002. An intense “zesty freshness” is thanks to citron, jasmine and teakwood that when combined leaves behind a “whirlwind” of energy and happiness.

Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Lip Balm ($38)

The final lip product on the list comes from award show–circuit favorite beauty brand CHANEL. Margot Robbie wore this lip balm to the Golden Globes back in January for a “healthy pink flush,” according to makeup artist Pati Dubroff. (Dubroff paired it with the iconic and undeniably most popular lipstick of the Globes, 31 Le Rouge Satin Lipstick [$195] in Rouge Beige.)

Perricone MD Cold Plasma Plus+ Hand Therapy ($32)

To “turn the clock back on aging hands,” one editor recommends this treatment from Perricone MD. “This silky smooth cream visibly firms, tightens and brightens skin on the hands. It even smoothes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, improves skin elasticity and reduces signs of dark spots and discoloration with continued use,” she explains.
