Ahead, our top picks for August.
Our Picks For The Best In Beauty This Month
"My skin always feels incredibly smooth and supple after using this, and I have to admit, I love the foaming sensation. It feels like something is really happening!"
—Alyson Fishbein, Senior Manager, Social Media
Oxygen Facial Flash Recovery Mask
Dr. Brandt Skincare
"My lips are always dry, no matter the season, but this scrub helps keep them soft and flake-free. Since my goal in life is to be a French girl, it helps with that, too."
—Lauren Black, Content Analyst
Rose Lip Polish
French Girl Organics
"I swear by my NuFace facial trainer, and this eye-specific attachment is a great new weapon in my ongoing fight against crow's-feet."
—Nicky Deam, Editorial Director
Trinity Ele Attachment
"I'm really bad about remembering to use a heat protectant, but this brand new cream is perfect for my unruly, thick and wavy hair. It melts into my strands making them feel super silky after styling rather than straw-like."
"I know I'm really late to the coconut oil party, but I recently became obsessed with this multi-tasking moisturizer. It smells like vacation and dries super fast without the leftover oily feel. And, fun fact, it's great for sunburns!"
—Leah Benzie, Social Media Editor
"To say I'm lusting after this palette would be an understatement."
—Kristin Mahler, Graphic Designer
Anastasia Beverly Hills
"I recently went much blonder, and this mask has been a lifesaver. It makes my fine hair super shiny and soft, and unlike most masks I've used, it doesn't weigh down my fine hair."
—Allie Flinn, Associate Lifestyle Editor
Blonde Life Brightening Masque
"Whenever I see breakouts I like to slather this on before bed. Use it diligently for a few nights and your pesky pimples will go away. Plus, it never dries out my skin."
—Amy Lee, Fashion Editor
"Best underarm wipes on the planet—they smell nice, keep me fresh for hours and the best part is they are organic."
—Christian David, Art Director
Underarm Deodorant Wipes with Coconut Milk & Essential Oils
"I've always been overly cautious with my super-sensitive, rosacea-prone skin, but our beauty editors convinced me to try this gentle exfoliating device and now I'm hooked. My complexion is so much smoother and brighter."
—Rebecca Iloulian, Marketing Manager
Dermaflash Facial Exfoliating Device
"This lightweight serum from celebrity-beloved DMH Aesthetics has the perfect mix of natural and targeted ingredients to even, brighten and plump the skin."
—Erin Nicole, Senior Lifestyle Editor
C&E Times Three Serum
"Less truly is more when it comes to skincare. Although I still felt hungover, I certainly didn't look it thanks to this mask, which instantly brightens the face."
—Samantha McDonald, News Editor
Vitamin Recovery Mask
"I've always had low iron levels, and one of the fun side effects is brittle, weak nails. I love that this formula gives me a much-needed boost of strength and nourishment so I can wear my fave summer nail shades with confidence."
—Angela Melero, Managing Editor
Nail Hardener & Conditioner
"I swear anything makes me bloat. To ease my discomfort, I've been drinking this blend of turmeric and probiotics, and I've noticed it's made my skin look more radiant."
—Andrea Navarro, Associate Beauty Editor
Debloat Food + Probiotic
The Nue Co.
"Because my skin can get temperamental when I'm traveling, I make sure to pack a mask or two. While sheet masks are simple to take on the road, mud wasn't so easy until I grabbed this one from Sephora. It's compact and has a resealable cap so you don't waste any product.”
—Stephanie Montes, Beauty Director
