For glowy, youthful-looking skin: Charlotte’s Magic Serum Crystal Elixir

This new launch from British celebrity makeup artist and beauty guru Charlotte Tilbury is another skincare-makeup hybrid we love. Formulated with plant adaptogen extracts to help retain moisture, niacinamide to improve skin tone, and Sepitonic M3 to promote smoother skin, this silky serum makes a great base for seamless makeup application and helps to reduce fine lines. The tiny, invisible-to-the-eye gold particles suspended within the serum also left our skin looking visibly glowy and youthful looking.

For a nourishing skin cleanse: Drunk Elephant E-Rase Milki Micellar Water

With micellar water being a popular choice when it comes to makeup removal, it’s no surprise clean beauty experts Drunk Elephant has hopped onto its bandwagon. Their version, a milky-textured formula, is crafted from a combination of moisturizing ceramides, plant oils, and vitamin E. With a couple of swipes from a cotton bud soaked in the micellar water, our makeup melted away with ease. Designed to work well even for sensitive skin, the remover also gently removes dirt and bacteria without stripping skin of its natural oils.

For a lightweight facial oil: Fresh Rose Deep Hydration Oil-Infused Serum

If you’re a fan of Fresh’s botanicals-infused skincare, this oil-infused serum will be right up your alley. The brand’s first such product offers a watery, lightweight texture, but with all the nourishing benefits of a facial oil. Before application, simply shake the bottle so that both water and oil combine into a serum that leaves skin deeply hydrated without a greasy finish. The water phase features rosewater and damask rose extract for skin soothing properties, while the oil phase is a blend of rose flower, camelina, rosehip, and squalene.
