Serums, moisturizers, cleansers, bronzers, lipsticks—you name it and we’ve tested it. While we can easily stop purchasing products altogether and live on samples alone, there are a handful of staples that we buy over and over again—aka our Holy Grails. Interested in what beauty products are worth the investment? We asked the many skincare-obsessed Editorialist staffers—all with amazing skin—to share the best products on their top shelf.
We disclose the vitamin C that doesn’t aggravate rosacea, a cleanser that makes pores nearly obsolete (gasp!), and a pimple patch that erases blemishes overnight. But if you’re more into gritty exfoliating cleansers, whipped-cream-esque CBD moisturizers, or resurfacing toners that rival dermatological lasers, we have those in spades, too. Our team has thoughts—here’s what they have to say.
