“Like most women these days, I’m always pressed for time which means my morning showers are a rushed affair. In the rare event that I get to relax and take a longer shower, the first thing I do is spend some time exfoliating. It’s so satisfying to really clean up and soften skin and this scrub from Tree Hut is my all-time favorite. Tree Hut scrubs are so wallet-friendly it’s ridiculous. At just under $7 you get a huge tub and some of the best-smelling bath product ever. The coconut lime scent is my jam right now, but I’m also partial to their coffee scrub. I love how this formula exfoliates and rinses clean—no tacky residue!"

"This summer was really rough on my feet. Between training for the New York City Marathon and trekking through the Greek countryside for two weeks, my poor dogs saw a lot of wear. I couldn't have made it through the summer without these blister patches. They're incredibly comfortable and adjust to your feet so easily. I put them on and practically forget they're there! And they last forever. I have worn one patch for several days without it budging or rubbing. I seriously swear by these and keep them in my purse at all times—just in case. They're a must for anyone who is prone to blisters or even enjoys less than comfortable shoes. (Cough, heels, cough!)"

"We shot a video with Sarah Creal, creator of The Estée Edit, and she said this was her favorite product from the line. After hearing her talk about it and watching her put the product on her hand, I knew I had to try it. I love how easily this product glides on your eye and water line. Having two colors in one applicator makes it convenient and a space saver. Don't even get me started on the color payout—INCREDIBLE! My only warning: Don't leave this product in your car on a hot day or even in the bathroom if you're taking a long, steamy shower. The formula melts easily and you'll have to bid adieu to your favorite eye liner."
—Samantha White, Video Strategist
"Lucky me, this was a gift from a fellow editor on the team! She knows I’m a lipstick addict. This fall weather keeps convincing me to reach for a dark lipstick in the morning. But the deep hues sitting on my vanity are almost too harsh for a daytime look, so I’ve been softening it with this gloss. I love this red hue for fall, but I'm also obsessed with the clear shade. It lightens the dark tint and adds a glow of shimmer, too! My only complaint is that it does wear off after the morning coffee. But then I have an excuse to reapply!"
—Claire Rodgers, Junior Editor
