last month felt like it was approximately 75 days long, April was over in the blink of an eye. That said, the month didn't go by too quickly for us to try new products in quarantine — and, in the process, discover the standouts that provided us with a daily dose of beauty self-care. As we continue to practice safe distancing measures amidst a global pandemic, indulging in some mood-boosting beauty treats — like the editor-approved ones ahead — could be considered money well spent. From a complexion-calming serum to a radiant cream bronzer that's substituting our daily dose of vitamin D, here are the best beauty products our editors loved in April. At Refinery29, we’re here to help you navigate this overwhelming world of stuff. All of our market picks are independently selected and curated by the editorial team. The product details reflect the price and availability at the time of publication. If you buy something we link to on our site, Refinery29 may earn commission. Kitsch x Justine Marjan XL Rhinestone Chain Bobby Pin Set "Hair accessories have quickly become my go-to Zoom look — they're fast, easy, and make you look instantly put together, even if you haven't washed your hair in six days (hi, me). These are my favorite new clips because the slight curve makes them super flattering and comfortable to wear all day, and the chain-link design couldn't be chicer. I love styling one above each brow in a center-parted schoolgirl style, or stacking them both on one side." — Cat Quinn, beauty director Kitsch x Justine Marjan XL Rhinestone Chain Bobby Pin Set, $, available at Sephora In Common Magic Myst Universal Elixir "There's really no other way to describe this mist: It's true, it's magic. It detangles my hair, makes for the sleekest and smoothest (but non-greasy) blowouts, and smooths out flyaways when my hair is dry. I use it most days, for everything from a voluminous blowout to a chic low bun." — Quinn In Common Magic Myst Universal Elixir, $, available at In Common Zoya Gelie-Cure Foundation Travel Kit + Mini LED "Technically this kit is meant for travel (which I'm not doing), but the compact packaging also makes it perfect to tuck into my bedside table for nighttime manicures — which have become my favorite quarantine activity while I relax in bed and watch Little Fires Everywhere. The little pink bag holds everything you need for a full manicure: orangewood stick, cuticle serum, base and top coat, and a curing light. I've been doing a clear manicure that makes me feel a bit more put together, and the gel soaks off in minutes with no scraping when you need a re-up." — Quinn Zoya Gelie-Cure Foundation Travel kit + Mini LED, $, available at Zoya Roen Beauty 11:11 Eyeshadow Palette "Oddly enough, I’ve actually been wearing more eye makeup in quarantine than I ever have out in the real world, probably because it’s a lot easier to keep it looking sharp for back-to-back Zoom calls on the couch than a full commute and nine-hour workday. The four ridiculously shimmery shadows in this palette are everything for meetings, happy hours, and beyond — they’re an instant look and genuinely flattering on my sallow indoor-kid skin." — Rachel Krause, deputy beauty director ROEN BEAUTY 11:11 Eyeshadow Palette, $, available at Sephora Kate Somerville DeliKate Recovery Serum "I don’t know how much I believe in stress-induced inflammation as the root cause of all human suffering, but it is definitely the cause of my skin’s general irritability right now. (Or one of the causes, at least — all that frozen cauliflower pizza-eating and red wine-drinking isn’t happening in a vacuum.) This soothing serum has been my go-to as an instant salve for any redness or flare-ups. Featuring calming cucumber seed oil and loads of strengthening ceramides, it’s the perfect lightweight layer for putting angry skin in its place." — Krause Kate Somerville DeliKate Recovery Serum, $, available at Kate Somerville Fable & Mane HoliRoots Pre-wash Hair Treatment Oil "I’ve done more hair and scalp treatments in the past three weeks than I have in the past three years, and I’m not sure if it’s because of the self-isolation or the fact that I’m extremely into this oil. The directions recommend leaving it in for at least five minutes and up to overnight; I’m not embarrassed to admit that I’ve let my parched ends and itchy roots marinate in the stuff for a full 48 hours. When I finally shampoo, the result is always shinier, lusher, healthier-looking hair — and the warm, addictive floral scent certainly doesn’t hurt." — Krause Fable & Mane HoliRoots Pre-wash Hair Treatment Oil, $, available at Sephora Thr33 CBD Infused Muscle Relief Cream "Like many people in self-isolation, I have been burning off (some) stress and anxiety with YouTube and Zoom workouts in my living room. Daily push-ups and squats, paired with working on my laptop for nine hours per day, has my body feeling some sort of way (read: sore and full of cricks), so this CBD cream has been a lifesaver. The minty scent is soothing but not overly medicinal, and it helps to melt away the tension in my neck, back, and hips. For the record, I have tried a lot of mentholated sport balms throughout my life, but this one is not like the rest; it doesn't burn the skin or smack your bunker buddy in the face with an overpowering scent. Think of it as Bengay's younger, sophisticated cousin." — Lexy Lebsack, senior beauty editor & host Thr33 CBD Infused Muscle Relief Cream, $, available at Thr33 No Mo-Unibrow "I spent the first few weeks of self-isolation masking and getting my nails in shape, and as I approach week eight in quarantine, my routine has moved onto foot peels, hair gloss, and eyebrow maintenance. These strips aren't new, but they've been so handy I can't help but shout them out. One small strip restored the wild patch of hair above my eyes formerly known as my eyebrows back into two distinct arches in less than 10 seconds." — Lebsack No Mo-Stache No Mo-Unibrow, $, available at Sephora Farmacy Daily Greens Oil-Free Gel Moisturizer "I've made it my mission in life (or as far as my day job goes) to not leave any stone unturned when it comes to trying out gel moisturizer. My oily skin absolutely swears by the stuff, and unlike heavier formulations, gels don't make me feel or look greasy by 9:59 am. Farmacy's new formula was actually inspired by the popular Green Clean cleansing balm, and shares a couple ingredients to boot, like papaya and moringa extracts. The result: a juicy, quenching hydrator that calms skin and keeps shine at bay." — Karina Hoshikawa, beauty & wellness market writer Farmacy Daily Greens Oil-Free Gel Moisturizer, $, available at Sephora Olive & June The Studio Box "I've been experimenting with fun, feel-happy nail art on my Instagram lately. While I'm by no means a pro, doing my nails is something that's truthfully brought me a lot of joy — especially when I'm feeling down. After balancing my phone on a series of McGyver contraptions to film time-lapse videos of my DIY mani, I took it as a sign when I received Olive & June's modern manicure kit, which includes a handy slot to cradle your phone while you film mini works of art on your nails. It's a major upgrade from the Pringles can I'd been using before." — Hoshikawa Olive & June The Studio Box, $, available at Olive & June GlamGlow SuperMud Clearing Treatment "With more time on my hands, I've rediscovered how much my skin loves a good clarifying mask, and GlamGlow's classic kaolin formula is one I'll always go back to. Within minutes of leaving it on, I can see deeply satisfying dots of excess oil coming to the surface, and my skin feels brighter and clearer immediately after rinsing clean. Stress breakouts don't stand a chance." — Hoshikawa GlamGlow SuperMud Clearing Treatment, $, available at Verishop tarte Hydrocealer Concealer & Blending Sponge "As I embrace the work-from-home lifestyle, it's important for me to have the right coverage products that hide that I just got out of bed 10 minutes ago, but also aren't too heavy for, well, just being at home. This brand-new concealer promises medium coverage that's brightening and hydrating, and it delivers, opening up my eyes while completing my at-home dewy look for every Zoom call." — Thatiana Diaz, senior beauty writer Tarte Hydrocealer Concealer & Blending Sponge, $, available at QVC La Mer The Renewal Body Oil Balm "Before you give me a side-eye for the price of this body balm, hear me out: I hate to get attached to products with high price tags, but it was hard not to fall in love with this formula. The best way to describe the oil-balm is as if you're wrapping your body in the most luxurious silk bedding, so consider it a worthy investment. Layering this on a few nights a week feels like a sensorial indulgence — and that's very much appreciated during these times." — Diaz La Mer The Renewal Body Oil Balm, $, available at Sephora Tower 28 Bronzino Illuminating Cream Bronzer "If you know me, then you know I can't live without my Tower 28 Beach Please Luminous Tinted Balm — it's my everyday blush that feels so good on my skin and leaves it with the perfect flush. That's why, when the brand announced it was launching a cream bronzer counterpart, I was more than ready to give it a try. Unsurprisingly, this bronzer leaves me with a glowy, dimensional sheen that doesn't look chalky or overly shimmery." — Diaz Tower 28 Bronzino Illuminating Cream Bronzer, $, available at Tower 28 Oribe Gold Lust Oil "The key to this hair and body oil — like most oil formulas, I’ve found — is to use it sparingly. To avoid crossing the razor-thin line between shine and greasiness, I release a teeny-tiny drop from the pipette, rub it between my hands, brush my palms through my dry, limp split ends, and voilà: My hair looks and smells super healthy, despite the fact that I needed a haircut approximately eight weeks ago and a shampoo yesterday." — Megan Decker, beauty writer Oribe Gold Lust Hair Oil, $, available at Verishop Tournesol SunPop Tanning Towelettes Medium "I love the efficiency of single-use tanning towels, especially when I’m traveling — which I technically am right now, quarantining at my childhood home in Maine hundreds of miles from my NYC apartment where I have a medicine cabinet full of fake tanners. These towelettes come saturated with a clear gradual-tanning formula, so all I have to do is unfold the damp cloth and rub all over my body until it’s dry, no mitt or precise circular rubbing motion necessary. This formula dries quickly so I can hop into bed right away, and I wake up the next day with a subtle glow and no visible streaks. Plus, there’s no weird DHA smell, and the wipes are biodegradable, so I feel better about using two or three per week as a pick-me-up." — Decker Tournesol SunPop Tanning Towelettes Medium 5-Count, $, available at Tournesol Dove Beauty Moisture Locking Leave In Conditioner "Quarantine has left me unenergized and unmotivated to do anything to my hair, so I’ve been laying off the hot tools and letting my natural curls do their thing. I’ve incorporated this curl cream into my routine, which simply involves raking some of this leave-in through my damp curls and letting them air dry. The results are always defined coils that don’t frizz or flake by the end of the day." — Aimee Simeon, beauty writer Dove Beauty Moisture Locking Leave In Conditioner, $, available at Target Like what you see?
