Skin Care

Angela Caglia Rose Quartz Eye Mask

Augustinus Bader The Cream

Joanna Vargas Eden Instant Lift Mask

La Mer The Concentrate

Angela Caglia's Rose Quartz Eye Mask makes a regular ol' rose quartz facial roller look like child's play. Not only does it tap into the zen energy of crystals, but the cool stone minimizes puffiness and can even help ease sinus pressure and boost circulation.

If you've long been eyeing Augustinus Bader's beloved Rich Cream, we're here to tell you it's worth every penny. With hydrating amino acids and plumping lipids, this cream helps improve skin's texture and resilience by curbing the impact of environmental stressors. It also enhances the skin's moisture barrier so that it's perpetually dewy.

We're guessing that with self-care in focus, masking is likely at an all-time high. Because, well, what else do we have to do? Joanna Vargas's Eden Instant Lift Mask is infused with hydrating hyaluronic acid, collagen-boosting apple stem-cell extracts, and the potent antioxidant CoQ10. Together, the ingredients calm inflammation and boost moisture levels within the skin. 

No luxury shopping spree is complete without a little La Mer. Our pick is The Concentrate, an ultra-smooth serum made of sea kelp and minerals that protects skin from pollution and calms inflammation. Furthermore, the aroma of lavender, helichrysum, rosemary, and basil is totally captivating.


Giorgio Armani Beauty Luminous Silk Foundation

Charlotte Tilbury Collagen Lip Bath

RMS Beauty Amethyst Rose Luminizer

Yves Saint Laurent Beauty Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils The Curler

Georgio Armani's Luminous Silk Foundation is one of the most popular foundations of all time. Literally, 1,000 bottles of it sell daily. And if you've ever tried it yourself, you know why: It's silky, buildable, and practically weightless. It's no wonder makeup lovers keep going back time and time again. Plus, it comes in 30 shades. 

So we're not saying that Charlotte Tilbury's Collagen Lip Bath gives the exact same effect as lip fillers, but it does come pretty close. The super-shiny formula hydrates and plumps lips with line-smoothing marine collagen and moisturizing coconut oil. It's also available in three shades that complement fair, medium, and deep skin tones. 

The lilac-tinted RMS Beauty Amethyst Rose Luminizer leaves a lightweight lavender glow on skin. Void of stickiness, oiliness, or too much shimmer, it's formulated with moisturizing castor seed and coconut oils so that the glow comes from within as much as it does from atop skin.

The two-in-one brush on Yves Saint Laurent's Beauty Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils The Curler dishes out curl and volume as well as length and definition. Also, if you've been struggling with lash growth, the coconut and bamboo oils in it hydrate and nourish weak lashes.

Hair Care

Sunday II Sunday Edge Flourish Daily Nourishing Serum

Olaplex No. 7 Bonding Oil

Slip Skinny Scrunchies

T3 Single Pass X Straightening Iron

Hair serums without silicones — ones that actually do a decent job at smoothing and treating damaged hair — can be hard to find. But Sunday II Sunday has pretty much put an end to that search. The Edge Flourish Daily Nourishing Serum combines anti-fungal coconut oil, moisturizing sunflower seed oil, and safflower seed oil, with strengthening biotin to soften and support the delicate hair around your edges. The pointed tip allows you to get close to the scalp with little mess. 

If the name Olaplex rings a bell, it's probably because you've read up on how well it helps restore and prevent compromised hair. Get this: The Bonding Oil literally merges broken hair back together. You can use it as a heat protectant, post-styling glosser, or a deep-conditioning treatment when your hair feels extra dry. 

Investment pieces like a good flat iron from T3 are well worth your dollars. With heat settings up to 410 degrees, the ceramic plates on the Single Pass X Straightening Iron heat hairs evenly and gets even the coarsest of hair smooth and straight. There are also audio and visual cues, so you’ll never have guess if your flatiron is ready for use. As you style with your iron, use Slip's Skinny Scrunchies to gently section off hair without creating creases. 


Diptyque Do Son Eau De Toilette

Tom Ford Neroli Portofino Eau De Parfum

Maison Margiela Replica Beach Walk Eau de Toilette

Serge Lutens Beauté Un Bois Vanille Eau De Parfum

There are few better options for gifting both yourself and others than a Diptyque fragrance. Do Son smells of tuberose, crushed orange flower, and musk, reminiscent of a springtime garden.

Tom Ford has brilliantly mastered the world of perfume. A scent we can’t live without is Neroli Portfino Eau de Parfum, a vacation-inspired scent that transports you to the Italian Riviera. It's marked by neroli, Italian bergamot, and Sicilian lemon. Hey, if you can't physically jet-set, let this fragrance mentally take you there.

And while you're in a mental vacation mode, add Maison Margiela's Replica Beach Walk Eau de Toilette to your cart. Notes of citrus, coconut, musk, and cedar will have you thinking that it's summertime by the sea. 

A more sultry option better suited for those who prefer a wintery cabin escape is the Serge Lutens Un Bois Vanille Eau de Parfum. Leading with gourmand, woods, and almond, it leaves you feeling enveloped in the warm and toasty aroma.
