Nothing puts a damper on date night like a big old zit. But with Skin Authority’s Clear Skin Kit, breakouts are just a bump in the road to romance.

Pucker Up, $21

We’re amorous of Armour Beauty’s paraben free, plant based lip-glosses, created by rocker and model mama Theo Kogan. Try her Nina shade for a perfectly pretty pout.

Right Time, Right Face, $54.95

What separates FutureDerm’s Retinol Cream from the pampering pack? It’s the first non-prescription, time released formula that’s gentle and effective for almost all skin types. Plus, it’ll battle unwanted creases, smooth mottled skin, and build firmness. If you’re not convinced, there’s a 30-day money-back guarantee!

Sinfully Rich, $18.50

Long, hot showers may feel like a luxurious antidote to the winter chill, but forgetting to hydrate your skin after-the-fact is a recipe for disaster. Now, with Skinn’s Sweet & Smooth Body Polish, locking in natural moisture is as simple as slather. This sweet treat softens and exfoliates to reveal radiant results.

Fine Lines, $65

Calling all sun worshipers! There’s nothing like a fierce tan to give you that bronzed glow. Too bad it leaves your skin dry and damaged. Enter L’Opera’s all-in-one concentrate serum, Blanchissante, which reduces the appearance of age spots, wrinkles, and acne. You’ll love the skin you’re in.

Heart & Sole, $9.95

Resuscitate fatigued feet and legs with NIP + FAB’s Stiletto Fix—a power-packed balm that refreshes with cooling peppermint, moisturizes and revives with glycerin, and instantly soothes with allantoin.

Pretty Peepers, $62

Look no further. Eye Wondrous Serum from Tilth Beauty decreases the appearance of wrinkles and frown lines, leaving you luminous. Fortified with peptides and retinol, your crow’s feet will fly south, well, indefinitely.

Nail it!, $8

With Zoya’s smokin’ hot Valentina polish—bright metallic Venetian red with smooth pink and gold metallic shimmer—you’ll have your fingers (and toes) on the pulse of high fashion this winter season. After all, the best things do come in small packages.

Prime Time, $27.95

Wait! Don’t powder your nose or dust on the blush just yet. At least not before prepping with DeVita’s Prime Corrective—a lightweight, non-greasy makeup primer that enhances skins luminosity and creates a barrier to ensure your makeup will last throughout the day. The secret? Its Diamond Core Powder technology refracts light rather than absorbing it.

Save Room for Desert, $59

Meet Mudpot—a 100% organic mask made from the Black Rock Desert, which draws toxins from the skin leaving pores tight and clean. Added bonus: it’s packaged in a plantable box with imbedded wildflowers!

Got Milk?, $50

It’s not your mama’s Calgon, but it will take you away. Osmia’s Organic Milk Bath contains buttermilk powder, organic oats, and baking soda combined with organic and wild-harvested essential oils certain to relax and revive you.


Under Recovery, $88

Launched last year, My is the first cosmetics company to introduce Pili—a superior, restorative oil, indigenous to the Philippines—to the U.S. skin care market. Their Skin Recovery Formula—a best seller—is a lightweight treatment that brightens, firms, and soothes, leaving your skin with a dewy hue.

New Age, $99.95

On a scale from one to ten, we’ll take Eleven, ElevenSkin that is. Created from nutrient-rich “seatanicals” that grow abundantly in warm ocean waters, their Anti-aging System is the best defense against skin damage and a stellar resource for skin repair. Dramatically improve your tone and texture in no time.
