4 Editors Share Their Real Shelfie Of Skin Care Must-Haves

Until the age of Instagram, it was borderline impossible to get a peek inside the medicine cabinets and makeup organizers of celebrities, public figures, or beauty experts, which meant their clearly-working skin care routines were kept a mystery for years. But now, famous actors, influencers and doctors alike routinely post “shelfies” of their favorite beauty products, allowing us a glimpse into their lives without ever having to leave our own house.

Unfortunately, there’s one downfall to these popular shelfie posts: They’re not always reliable when it comes to showing what people actually use day-to-day. In fact, many of these shelfies seem to be set up solely for the purpose of being aesthetically pleasing rather than showcasing the products that—while they might not have showy packaging—ultimately work better than anything else. So, we asked four of our editors for their unfiltered shelfies, showing off exactly what they keep in their medicine cabinets for easy access every day. And considering they've tried every product under the sun, it's clear that these items are the cream of the crop in order to have gained a coveted spot in their routines.
