FaceTory’s Lip Sleeping Mask contains jojoba seed oil and shea butter to soften and soothe, but the hero ingredient in this product is strawberry fruit extract — an antioxidant-rich superstar that also increases radiance. If the color of your lips tends to blend in with your complexion (we’ve been there), this provides a natural flush similar to that of a very subtle lip tint.
Clothes won’t be stained by Sol de Janeiro’s Glowing Body Oil, a transfer-resistant formula that leaves behind a luminous, visibly radiant complexion. Suitable for both the face and body, this oil is streak-free, blendable, and non-sticky, plus, the travel-size bottle makes it the perfect addition to vacation skin-care routines. Although, if we’re being honest, we intend on using this year-round to make us feel as if we’re sunbathing in Italy…and not typing away in our apartments.
Touchland’s Glow Mist Hand Sanitizer banishes bad bacteria with just a quick spritz but, unlike most hand sanitizers on the market, it’s also packed with skin-loving ingredients such as rosewater, aloe vera, and radish root ferment to provide hydration and antimicrobial protection. Plus, slim packaging makes this 2022 Best of Beauty Award winner easy to store in even the tiniest of clutches.
Cosrx’s Snail Mucin Repair Cream is a lightweight, gel-like formula that tackles skincare concerns ranging from rosacea to acne. The hero ingredient fueling this product? Snail mucin. As previously explained by Sejal Shah, MD, a board-certified dermatologist based in New York City, “snail mucin is a complex mix of peptides, glycosaminoglycans, hyaluronic acid, antioxidants, and metal ions (such as zinc, copper, iron, and manganese).” If they struggle with hyperpigmentation or dryness, this multi-solution product is an effective gift they’ll surely use to the last drop.
