We might hail from headquarters, but we're Influensters just like you! We love to discover and test new products all the time. With winter rolling in, we're switching up some of our editors' picks to help with the adjustment. Get the scoop on what the Influenster editors cherished this November!
"I got the opportunity to test this product before it even launched (perks of the job!) and from the second I swatched it on my hand, I was hooked. The texture is unlike anything I've every felt: it's balmy and creamy at the same time. The balm practically melts into your skin, instantly mattifying. (My problematic pores might have met their match.) My combination skin needs extra moisture in winter but not too much or else I'll only add to my annoying shine problem. This product has drastically helped that problem for me. Let's just say I couldn't have run across this product at a better time."
"I was lucky enough to get this dropped on my desk one day by a fellow editor. If there’s one thing I absolutely have to touch up before leaving my apartment it’s my brows. I’m always looking for the next best pencil to get my money’s worth. This perfectly matches my hair and glides on effortlessly. It really gets into those tiny bare areas that are hard to reach. Plus, the other end of the pencil has a brush that I use to angle it out. I could go weeks without tweezing and somehow this brush can transform them into Lily Collins-esque arches! The only con: It’s so slender. I lose it all the time!"
Moroccanoil Treatment ($15)
"It's incredibly versatile—can be used for conditioning, styling, and finishing. It's infused with vitamins and is great for color-treated or damaged hair, like mine. I put it on damp hair after every wash and use it daily on the ends of my hair and to tame any flyaways. All my hairstylists have recommended it and it won Influenster's Reviewers' Choice Awards for Best Hair Treatment last year, so you know it's an awesome product!"
"I am not a mask person. Rather than relaxing me, sitting still for 30 minutes waiting for a mask to dry leaves my mind racing with all the things I could be doing instead. The fact that this mask takes three minutes flat to reach full effectiveness is reason number one why I love it. Secondly, is the fact that I have true combination skin that is only getting more extreme as I get older—an oily T-zone and dry cheeks are the sad new normal around here. This mask not only banishes visible oil but controls it for days after use while fighting breakouts. It’s also paraben and sulfate-free which are big plusses in my book. The one caution I’ll give you is that this is powerful stuff—a good and bad thing. If you have combo skin I’d recommend using it at most twice per week. Even extremely oily girls should probably do every other day."
"I am, for lack of a better word, OBSESSED. First of all, the smell is unbelievable. I would use this product for the smell alone, even if I didn't see any results. It is the IGK NYC scent and I will be purchasing all of the products in this line JUST for the smell! Second, I use it 3 times a week in lieu of shampoo and conditioner and my hair feels so moisturized and clean after. I apply in the shower, let sit for 2-3 minutes and rinse out and boom, my hair air dries so nicely with just the right amount of body! Back to the smell, a girl at the gym asked which shampoo I use, AFTER a workout. That's how good/long lasting the smell is. Hands down, new favorite hair product!"
"I could tell from the packaging this was a luxury product that does not fool around. And it certainly didn't. I have used this product every day for the past two weeks and notice a visible difference in how my skin looks, which is really all I'm looking for from a skincare product like this. I had dry skin and I haven't been having red face syndrome at all after about a week of using this product."
