Wednesday Selects

Monday seems more ancient than the Backstreet Boys' debut album yet the weekend is light-years away. To help you beat the mid-week blues, we’re spotlighting the beauty goods that are helping us get through the week with our skin, style, and sanity intact. Happy hump day!

ORIGINS Smarty Plants™ CC SPF 20 Skin Complexion Corrector

As further proof that we are already living in a sci-fi version of the future, the nature technicians over at ORIGINS have designed a plant-based CC cream with technologically enhanced powers. Not only does it hydrate skin and conceal imperfections, but it also guards against environmental toxins that no city-dweller can escape.

POP Beauty Pouty Pop Crayon Kit

Beyond bringing back fond memories of our grade school days, this collection of crayon-shaped lip balms makes experimenting with new colors as easy as ABC. Each of the six shades included in the kit has a long-lasting formula and gentle plumping ingredients. Bonus: this twist-up crayon requires no sharpening whatsoever.

Dr. Jart+ Premium Firming Sleeping Mask

While You Were Sleeping is a romantic comedy about a woman who pretends to be engaged to a dude in coma—a plot line which seemed a lot less insane when we first watched it. Funnily enough, it’s also how this firming face mask works. Simply apply two to three pumps onto your face before hitting the hay. Overnight, the supercharged gel-like formula expedites cell turnover and detoxifies pores.

Folle de Joie Hand Cream

When we want Joie’s signature fragrance Folle de Joie, which means “crazy with joy,” to linger just a little bit longer we rely on this lushly-scented hand cream, which features notes of Italian mandarin, South American petitgrain, and lively touches of cognac. In other words, it’s kind of like an aromatherapy-powered spa treatment in a bottle.

Beauty Protector Protect & Detangle

Fact: this ace detangler has garnered a staggering 14,000 (mostly glowing) reviews in the Birchbox Shop. Beauty Protector’s leave-in mist protects our follicles from heat and sun damage, detangles (duh!), minimizes frizz, and adds shine. Happily, it accomplishes all this through a weightless, non-greasy formula that leaves behind an airy floral scent.

For The Makers Flora Charm Bracelet

Rick Ross may have missed the memo, but the days of in-your-face bling are O-V-E-R. To stay on trend, slip on this delicate charm bracelet from For the Makers. It adds the right amount of pizzazz to any ensemble—without looking like you just robbed Jacob the Jeweler. Just follow this tutorial for step-by-step instructions on attaching beads, charms, and whatever else strikes your fancy.
