A love of discovering new products is one of the defining parts of every Influenster. And this editor is no different. I'm lucky enough to spend my days at Influenster HQ (now at home!) learning all I can about the latest products and trends to share with the Influenster community. 

The latest products to catch my eye deserve a spot on any splurge list this summer because each one is more decadent than the next. And while I love a good drugstore buy, now more than ever I'm enjoying saving up and paring down my product collection. These three products can help me accomplish just that.

Savor Beauty Chamomile Moisture Mask, $52 at savorbeauty.com

Like many these days, I've been suffering from "maskne" a.k.a. breakouts caused by wearing a face mask. My go-to for treating my breakouts has caused me to up my use of spot treatments, which can be overly drying. So when I discovered Savor's new Chamomile Moisture Mask, I was excited to get some relief from overly drying and intense treatments. This gel features uber hydrating hyaluronic acid, redness-reducing chamomile, and anti-inflammatory calendula. In addition, there's cucumber and plantago leaf to top off the cooling mask. After just one use, the gentle peel left my wrecked skin just a little happier and soothed, which is just the small win I needed.

Serumkind Yellomello Drop, $46 at serumkind.com


Beyond my breakouts, my skin is suffering from typically summer woes, the primary one being large pores. The latest serum from the wonderfully simple serum-based skincare brand is the pore-refining and clearing Yellomello Drop serum. This vibrant serum targets pores head on thanks to 89 percent of the potent Marmelo Leaf Extract that's rich in both antioxidants and astringent ingredients. Just a few drops of this naturally yellow cocktail boasts more sebum control for my oily summer skin. 

Pat McGrath Labs Mothership VIII Artistry Eyeshadow Palette - Divine Rose II Collection, $125 at sephora.com

I'm not typically one for a full-face of makeup, and especially during quarantine. But the second I spotted Pat McGrath Labs Mothership VIII Artistry Eyeshadow Palette - Divine Rose II Collection, I knew I was hooked. This special edition palette features 10 ultra opulent shadows that just demand to be worn. With glitter, matte, chrome, and shimmer options, these shadows have every bit a high fashion feel, as they should—it is Pat McGrath after all. On top of that, the color scheme boasts a rich selection of futuristic garden hues like ranging from light roses to rich burgundies and sunny golds. I could look at this palette for hours, but beyond that, I plan on wearing it to all of my Zoom meetings from here on out.

PopSockets PopGrip Burt's Bees Lips Cell Phone Grip & Stand, $19 at target.com

PopSockets PopGrip Burt's Bees Lips Cell Phone Grip & Stand

Like many Influensters, I've long been a Burt's Bees Lip Balm fan. And now that I've spent the last few months inside with my AC blasting, I've found that I've needed to stay hydrated more than ever. One way I'm doing that is by feverishly applying my beloved Beeswax Lip Balm. Now, I think I've found my solution to my obsession thanks to this genius cross over with PopSockets and Burt's. The flip-top of the handy PopSockets PopGrip reveals a pan of my classic balm so I can take it anywhere I go this summer. For less than $20, you get two pans of balm and a PopGrip to make hydration oh-so easy.
