From newer launches to old reliables.
And just like that, summer has come to a close.
But just because the warmest season of the year is over doesn't mean we've given up on having a smooth, glowing complexion from head-to-toe (that, of course, we're protecting with SPF) and shiny hair.
Here, we rounded up our hand-picked faves from September so you can enjoy them for the remainder of fall, too.
Discover our best-kept beauty secrets, below.
Beekman 1802 Bloom Cream Daily Moisturizer
To shop: $54; beekman1802.com
I’ve always had acne-prone skin, and have struggled to find a thick moisturizer that doesn’t break me out — until I discovered Beekman 1802's Bloom Cream. Maybe it's the probiotic-rich formula that my skin's microbiome loves, or perhaps it's the moisturizing sunflower seed oil, the calming aloe extract, or another of the multiple skin-yummy ingredients. Whatever it is, now I don't have to sacrifice a clear complexion for a moisturized one — I can have my cake and eat it too. — Pia Velasco, Senior Beauty Editor
Giorgio Armani Neo Nude True-to-Skin Natural Glow Foundation
To shop: $44; giorgioarmanibeauty.com
Hands down, I have never received more compliments on my skin than when I'm wearing this foundation. It cancels out redness and evens out most of my dark spots, yet it still looks like my skin – just a lot glowier thanks to moisturizing ingredients hyaluronic acid and glycerin. Better yet, the formula truly feels like you're wearing nothing at all and doesn't oxidize or melt off mid day. — Erin Lukas, Beauty Editor
Light Water Skin Nutrition Replenishing Cream
To shop: $48; lightwaterskin.com
With COVID finally losing its main character energy (fingers crossed and knock on wood), travel's definitely been back on the forefront. And on nearly every trip I've taken since the spring, I've brought Light Water with me. Each easy-to-pack pouch contains a perfect portion of the brand's Replenishing Cream, which works overtime as you sleep to help firm and rejuvenate the skin. And with a blend of ceramides, ferulic acid, antioxidants, and more, it's easy to see why it gets the job done. I wake up looking refreshed every time — no matter how jet-lagged I may be. — Kayla Greaves, Executive Beauty Editor
True Botanicals Skin Barrier Sun Shield SPF 30
To shop: $65; truebotanicals.com
Many facial chemical sunscreens make me break out, which leaves me with mineral formulas. While physical sunscreens have definitely evolved over the years, many of the options are still chalky and feel thick under makeup. This True Botanicals SPF has quickly become my go-to facial sunscreen because it has a second-skin finish that doesn't leave a white cast and layers nicely under makeup without any piling. — Erin
Dove Hair Therapy 7-in-1 Miracle Mist
To shop: $8; target.com
Dove is one of the few brands I trust to create products that can be used across numerous hair textures, and the 7-in-1 Miracle Mist is no exception. While I've used the product before, I recently got reintroduced to it during a press trip with Unilever (Dove's parent company). Celebrity hairstylist Ursula Stephen spritzed the product on my hair before giving me an epic blowout, and my hair was incredibly soft and smooth, with tons of movement. I'll definitely be adding this leave-in conditioner to my at-home haircare regimen. — Kayla
Paula's Choice Skin-Smoothing Retinol Body Treatment
To shop: $29; paulaschoice.com
I've always taken care of my skin from head-to-toe — after all, the skin doesn't stop at the bottom of your face or neck. And while there are a handful of body butters and lotions I constantly have on rotation, I do love a more lightweight formula, too. This body serum is that and more. It absorbs really quickly, spreads really well, and it's niacinamide-rich formula targets any hyperpigmentation and flakes I may experience post-shave and as the season changes. — Pia
