La Prairie 3-Minute Peel
"Look: I do not have time for masks on masks on masks, waiting 15 minutes for this one then 20 minutes for that one. I have 3 minutes, and I'd prefer to answer e-mails while it's going to work. I love this peel — which, PS, employs AHAs, BHAs, and Salicylic Acid, so it’s good for anti-aging and acne — because you can instantly feel it go to work. When you take it off, you’ll notice that any products afterwards feel like they’ll immediately absorb into the skin. It's magic."
Tatcha Overnight Memory Serum Concentrate
"A lot of overnight products can be heavy and rich, but my skin usually can't handle that kind of moisture intake — I literally will wake up with zits by morning. This serum formula from Tatcha, on the other hand, has more of a gel texture, so it absorbs instantly into the skin without feeling heavy. I use the little golden spoon and apply one scoop to my neck and décolletage, and one to my face, then massage it in until my skin is dry."
Chantecaille Retinol Intense+
"After I turned 25, I decided to get as real as possible about retinol…without going to the dermatologist. Chantecaille’s formula is super gentle — it hydrates like any cream moisturizer — but you'll wake up with noticeably more luminous skin."
Herbivore Botanicals Lapis Balancing Facial Oil
"I use a good three drops of this stuff on my face after I’m done with my nighttime routine to ensure that I am well moisturized before bed. I want to wake up glowy and dewy, and nothing quite does the trick like a luxurious oil — especially one that actually calms the skin with ingredients like blue tansy, blue chamomile, and jojoba oil."
