"The sun is shining in LA after a rainy winter, and I swear by this product every day: It's light and goes on quickly and evenly. It's hard to believe the high SPF, because you don't get that sweating-under-my-sunscreen feeling at all."
—Tom Balamaci, General Manager
- City Sunscreen Serum SPF 30, Supergoop! $42
"It's my birthday this month, so I'm sparing no expense when it comes to my beauty regimen. I'm using this serum to hydrate my skin and reduce fine lines ahead of my big day—it works!"
—Erin Nicole, Lifestyle Editor
- Anti-Aging Rapid Response Booster Gel Serum, La Prairie $310
"I've been neglecting my hair this winter, so it's pretty dry and in need of some TLC. I love this conditioning spray as a quick way to add moisture. After I towel-dry my hair, I spritz it on liberally, especially at the ends, and the next day my strands are softer and healthier-looking."
—Amy Lee, Associate Fashion Editor
- Beyond Hydrated Moisture Milk Leave-In Conditioner, Honest Beauty $20
"This works serious wonders for your eyes. Any wrinkles or puffiness noticeably disappear. It's amazing!"
—Leah Benzie, Social Media Editor
- Restorative Eye Treatment, Alastin Skincare $85
"I have a bit of a lipstick addiction, so when I discover one that's my perfect shade and affordable, to say I'm excited is an understatement. This one is softer than any lip balm, and it's a gorgeous spring hue. Do yourself a favor."
—Rebecca Iloulian, Associate Marketing Manager
- Mattelusture Lipstick in Rose Naturelle, Pixi $12
"Winter has been super-harsh on my strands, and this new oil spray has been a miracle worker. It's lightweight and tames frizz. I've been spraying it onto my damp hair after washing, then misting my ends with an extra spritz once fully styled to boost softness and shine."
—Laura Lajiness, Fashion Editor
- Aura Botanica Essense D'Eclat, Kerastase $43
"My skin tone is incredibly difficult to match, so my ears perked up when I heard about a makeup line for medium shades. This buildable foundation sealed the deal with easy application and flawless coverage. Finally—a color that makes me look more human, less Kelly Osbourne circa 2012."
—Samantha McDonald, News Editor
- Limitless Foundation, Stellar $38
"This spray is super-lightweight, smells amazing and truly works. Plus, the added SPF barrier can't hurt."
—Nicky Deam, Editorial Director
- Defense Refresh Setting Mist with Rosemary SPF 50, Supergoop! $12
"Finally, a glitter eye shadow that isn't messy (and doesn't look obnoxious). It takes seconds to apply and actually stays put, which is kind of a makeup miracle."
—Allie Flinn, Associate Lifestyle Editor
"Got dark circles? I certainly do, and this yellow concealer is the real deal. It covers every trace of a late night and brightens like none other. It's pretty heavy-duty, so I wear it with a full face of makeup."
—Stephanie Montes, Senior Beauty Editor
"I'm obsessed with the texture and slight tint this gives your lips—it's like you drank fruit punch!"
—Christian David, Art Director
- Dinoplatz Lip Balm, Too Cool For School $15
"I had a really bad breakout and needed a product to calm it overnight; I found this blemish lotion at Credo and I'm never turning back! It drew out all my impurities without drying my skin, and I haven't had another breakout since."
—Andrea Navarro, Associate Beauty Editor
- Blemish Lotion, Indie Lee $26
