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!

Madison Reed Nourishing Color-Enhancing Shampoo & Conditioner System

When Sade soulfully crooned about a “Smooth Operator”, she may have been referring to these frizz-fighting hair essentials. This duo instantly refines your ‘do and keeps flyaways at bay. Bonus: It seals in color and protects strands against shade-altering UV rays.

Whether your brows are fine and wispy or Groucho Marx-esque, this sleek-ifying kit is for you. It comes with five Brow Stencils, a sheer Brow Wax Cream, a Brow Powder Duo, and an Angled Brush to take your arches from lame to luscious.

derma e® Evenly Radiant® Brightening Serum

To every other boastful serum that eventually let us down, we make like Tyra Banks and curse: “I was rooting for you, we were all rooting for you!” Luckily, derma e® has stepped in to offer our serum-weary skin this knockout treatment. The vitamin-packed formula actually brightens, hydrates, and evens skin tone without any greasy or sticky residue. Plus, it’s 100% vegan, cruelty-free, paraben-free, sulfate-free, mineral oil-free, lanolin-free, gluten free, and GMO-free.

Miracle Skin Transformer Miracle Revival Mud

Need a complexion refresh? Slather on this mud-based mask, which removes impurities without stripping your skin. Containing bioactive silt from European spring-fed lakes, it stimulates collagen production to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Gilchrist & Soames Spa Therapy Body Lotion

There are plenty of ways to recreate a luxe spa experience at home. Chief among them? Investing in spa-quality elixirs. Our go-to option is this calming lotion from London-based brand Gilchrist & Soames. Marine extracts hydrate and pamper skin, while exotic Japanese sea fennel quells environmental damage. And best of all, the formula contains absolutely no phthalates, mineral oils, parabens, or petrol-derived ingredients.

Benefit Big Easy

Revise all preconceived notions about BB creams. Benefit’s new “bigger than BB” formula, Big Easy, is out to redefine the category. A true medium-coverage tinted formula, it not only evens out skin, but it also controls oil, protects with SPF 35, and self-adjusts to match your unique tone. Impressed? Us too.
