A match made in skin-care heaven, Kosas pairs their innovative Plump + Juicy Vegan Collagen Spray-On Serum with The Skinny Confidential’s Hot Mess Ice Roller for the ultimate dose of complexion TLC. Spray the peptide-infused serum onto clean skin to hydrate, then follow with the ice roller to sculpt, de-puff and soothe.
A celebrity favorite, these sleek, non-sticky, never-slippery under-eye masks get to work quickly to noticeably de-puff tired eyes. For even more magic, store them in the fridge.
For younger, firmer, bouncier-looking skin, there’s nothing like this before-bed cream from London-born Elemis. Its rich yet sinks-right-in formula comforts dry skin and ushers in a serious glow come morning.
Ideal for prepping skin ahead of a special occasion or for the ultimate at-home facial, these top-rated sheet masks are drenched with sodium hyaluronate (derived from hyaluronic acid) to noticeably plump up the look of fine lines and deliver a fresh-from-the spa glow in minutes.
Slip Silk Pillowcase ($89)
We can’t think of a skin-care devotee who wouldn’t appreciate a silk pillowcase like this one. Not only do silk pillowcases boost your routine by not absorbing your skin-care products like cotton ones do, their smooth, no-tug surface also help prevent the formation of lines and wrinkles.

Framboos, B-Hydra, Protini Cream, Wonderwild, Beste, Babyfacial and A-Gloei.

SkinCeuticals CE Ferulic ($169)

The perfect form-meets-function find, these just-add-water, one-inch coins transform into a 10×10 inch cleansing cloth that can be used to remove makeup or offer gentle exfoliation. Once you’re done, toss the hygienic coin out and sleep easy—it’s biodegradable and home compostable.

The only thing better than one Tatcha moisturizer is four.
