Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Niacinamide Dew Drops
Dr. Jart Cicapair Tiger Grass Color Correcting Treatment
If there was ever a skin-care product worthy of a life in front of the camera, it’s the incredibly aesthetic Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Niacinamide Dew Drops ($34). Lucky for us, the benefits don't end at the blush-pink bottle. Our favorite way to use this highlighting serum is as a final step under our makeup. The lightweight gel soaks in fast and doesn’t mess with the rest of our skin care, yet it creates the prettiest dewy glow that makes everything we apply after look better.
Yes, this hybrid treatment is the same color as that box of Doublemint at the bottom of your bag, but no, it won’t turn your skin green. What the Dr. Jart+ Cicapair Tiger Grass Color Correcting Treatment ($52) will do is cancel out any redness while protecting your skin from UV damage and environmental aggressors, leaving behind an even-toned complexion that looks like you just stepped out of a facial — like magic.
Paula's Choice Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant
After just one use of the Paula's
Choice Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant ($30) before bed, we woke up with smoother, brighter skin, no cap. That’s because a potent dose of salicylic acid (this liquid exfoliator contains two percent of the stuff) works on both a surface level, sloughing off dead cells, and a deeper level, going into pores to keep them clear from the inside out.
Social Media Star's Pick
The Ordinary Mandelic Acid 10% + HA
"The Ordinary is an extremely popular brand on TikTok because of its accessibility and affordable price point, and one of my favorites is the Mandelic Acid 10% + HA ($7). It's a gentle AHA exfoliant that helps smooth texture, reduce breakouts, and actually lighten hyperpigmentation. It's great for those with darker complexions and sensitive skin."
CeraVe Hydrating Facial Cleanser
A longtime staple that’s seen a serious boom on TikTok is CeraVe. The next gen is loving its widely tolerated and affordable nature. One of the products we can get behind is the CeraVe Hydrating Facial Cleanser ($11). This ultragentle, milky gel cleanser rids your skin of dirt and oil without removing any of the beneficial stuff or messing with your protective microbiome.
