"I am a night owl by nature and I struggle with seasonal allergies. Those two factors combined mean that too often, my eyes are a little puffy when I wake up in the morning. I use this portable, liquid eye treatment to tackle puffiness and give my eyes a refreshed look. The rollerball applicator is cold on contact—super soothing for tired eyes—plus the formula contains a mega dose of caffeine which I can feel working immediately. I've repurchased this so many times—it's a drugstore must!"
—Bethany Cantor, Director of Content
"I wish I could say breakouts were a thing of the past for me, but I find myself tackling a blemish or two during the hot summer months when sweat is far too common of a breakout-culprit. This powerful yet gentle exfoliating scrub from St. Ives is my go-to for post morning-run washes. A small drop is enough to wash my whole face. The refreshing scent, the 100 percent natural exfoliants, and the salicylic acid all work together to create an enjoyable cleansing experience that calms my summer breakouts, unclogs my pores, and puts redness in its place. I've already gone through one bottle this summer!"
—Caitlin Miller, Site Editor
"I've been using this product since I first began wearing mascara. It lengthens, thickens, has a non-clumpy deposit, and delivers great color. It's such a steal. The wand is small and flat, so it makes precision simple. You can get every lash and pull them in any direction you like. Why reinvent the wheel?"
—Sam White, Content Strategist
"I love the tin! My lips actually got super sunburned early in the season and Vaseline restored them in now time! I might be addicted to it, my lips look and feel moisturizer at all times!"
—Carson Mehl, Social Media Strategist
"It’s all anybody ever talks about in the office, so I had to see what all the hype was about! I’ve found that this powder almost doubles as a foundation and setting powder. It gives me just enough coverage to keep me shine-free all day without feeling heavy. It’s the perfect amount of coverage for this hot NYC summer. Since it is just a powder, it doesn’t cover blemishes to the fullest on its own. If I’m having a bad breakout day, I’ll combine this product with another foundation. I will definitely buy it again. It’s my purse pocket’s new BFF! I take it out on the subway for last-minute touch-ups."
—Claire Rodgers, Junior Content Strategist
"I love how smoothly this goes on and how silky it makes my skin feel before applying anything else. On days when I don’t wear any foundation or BB cream, I usually just opt for this and my usual brow routine. It does the same job as high end pore minimizers for a fraction of the price!"
—Ally Zhao, Graphic Design Intern
