It may feel like an extra step, but applying an eye cream at night can lessen the need to pile on a ton of concealer come morning. We love @kiehls Midnight Recovery Eye treatment because it depuffs, minimizes fine lines, and hydrates the undereye area—all while you’re catching those precious
We first got to know @glamglow for all of their amazing masks we reach for when our skin needs a little extra TLC—but did you know they have awesome cleansers, too!? The brand’s SUPERCLEANSE Clearing Cream-to-Foam Cleanser washes away all of the oil and grime sitting deep in your pores (yuck) with detoxifying charcoal, exfoliating AHAs, and mattifying Mediterranean clay.
Hey guys! It's @loreleio here taking you inside my (new!) bathroom cabinet. While I truly love everything in here, I definitely have a few products that are absolute must-haves. The @theouai dry shampoo foam is my morning savior—it keeps my hair looking fresh when I don't have time to wash it. I'm also very into everything from @herbivorebotanicals. The brand's natural ingredients plus the minimalist packaging is very much my aesthetic— I especially love their Rose Hibiscus Face Mist. You can also see my dry brush at the top of my shelfie—I'm really trying to dry brush more consistently because I know it's so good for me, but I don't have the routine down just yet. Maybe this post will be the push I need to remember to do it every morning. Would love to know what your favorites are!
“I love the look of a matte lipstick, but hate the dry, cracking feeling that comes with a lot of formulas out there. This transforming top coat from @smashboxcosmetics allows me to achieve that look without any discomfort. I apply a generous layer over my favorite cream lipstick and it instantly changes the finish from cream to shine-free. I was hooked after the first time I tried it.” —@sophiaguglietta, Senior Merchant Associate, Makeup & Nail
“I’ve been hooked on this magical cream since the moment I tried it. There are so many different ways to use it (night cream, makeup remover), but my favorite way is slathering it on as a moisturizer/makeup primer hybrid. It honestly does it all—deeply hydrates, sinks in fast (key for busy mornings), and it makes my combination skin even and smooth. Plus, it has a subtle, refreshing scent, and I feel super fancy knowing it’s a French beauty staple and celebrity fave!” — @lexibriden, Senior Web Production Associate
Here's a trick: Find yourself a cleanser that makes washing your makeup off after a long day a calming ritual . We love how @maccosmetics Cleanse Off Oil gets the job done with nourishing oils to remove makeup, dirt, and oil without clogging pores. Apply it to a dry face, massage (ahh), then rinse to reveal seriously soft, clean skin! What’s your favorite cleanser to use at the end of the day?

“ @davinesnorthamerica OI All in One Milk is one of my favorite products to use in my haircare routine. It's part detangler, part UV protectant, and part leave-in conditioner, so I know I'm going to get many benefits with just a few sprays. Unlike some leave-in products, it's super lightweight and doesn't weigh down my fine hair. I also love its fresh citrusy smell! I use a few sprays on my towel-dried hair and either air-dry or blow-dry—it works great either way.” — @elliederes, Senior Merchant Associate, Hair & Fragrance

Hey guys! It’s Bridget (@xxbll) from the B Team giving you a look at what products are currently in rotation in my bathroom beauty cabinet. There's a mix of new favorites— like the @theouai Leave In Conditioner that I got in last month's box—and old favorites like @sundayriley Saturn Sulfur Acne Treatment Mask. What's one product you're loving this month? Tell us down below!
"When it comes to experimenting with eye makeup, I take a less-is-more approach. That's why I love this easy-to-use shadow from @loveofcolorbeauty that adds a subtle amount of shine to my lids for any daytime or nighttime look. The water-based formula glides right over my eyelids with no smudging or creasing—just one swipe brightens my entire look!” – @ash_mck6, Senior Associate, Public Relations

As a female lawyer Courtney advocates for women to stand strong in their beliefs and to refrain from second-guessing themselves ("our male counterparts don't, so why should we?!"). To get the ball rolling, Courtney: What’s your best advice for all of the aspiring lawyers out there?
"I have fine, color-treated hair which I heat style often, so adding moisture is essential for keeping my hair in tip-top shape. That’s where the @OUAI Rose Hair and Body Oil comes into my routine. It smells great and keeps my strands smooth and moisturized for a sleek style. After straightening my hair, I run a small amount through my mid-lengths to ends." – @clairemhampson, Merchant Associate, Hair & Fragrance

“While researching gender parity in the workplace, I read about how one of the main reasons there's less female leadership is because of a lack of confidence in their self-worth." To help shine a light on this issue, we collaborated with director and producer Valerie Schenkman to create a video that captures what confidence means to women (and girls!) and how it impacts their sense of self-worth.
