    1. SkinCeuticals Triple Lipid Restore

    Investment: $128 
    Why We Love It: 
    “SkinCeuticals Triple Lipid Restore is hands-down my favorite investment beauty product. I love the creamy texture and how it keeps my skin feeling and looking hydrated throughout the day. After using this product, I immediately noticed a visible radiance and glow. It has become my go-to moisturizer and the one skin care product that I can’t live without.”—Cyndi, President

    2. Harry Josh® Pro Tools Pro Dryer 2000

    Investment: $249
    Why We Love It: 
    “As a mom, I’m always in a hurry to go from one place to another, so I don’t always have enough time to style (or even dry) my hair in the morning. The Pro Dryer takes way less time to dry my hair. Plus, the ion setting leaves my hair looking sleek and glossy—not frizzy and static-y at all—unlike those hairdryers from the drugstore or hotel. Less drying time also means that my hair isn’t exposed to that much heat, which causes less damage!”—Gracee, Content Manager

    3. iS Clinical Active Serum

    Investment: $135
    Why We Love It: 
    “Prior to working here, I only invested in makeup and used the standard makeup wipe and moisturizer as the extent of my skin care routine (I know—try not to judge too harshly). Now, I have my holy grail products and the one I replenish as soon as it nears empty is the Active Serum by iS Clinical. I have dry and dehydrated skin with a bit of hyperpigmentation so this product helps to brighten up dark spots and makes my skin look radiant overall. Once you try it, you won’t look back.”—Joann, Copywriter

  4. 4. Bellatorra Cellular Repair Night Cream

    Investment: $385

    Why We Love It: 

    “My splurge-worthy product is definitely the Cellular Repair Night Cream by Bellatora. Considering the steep price point, I don’t use it every day—I actually use it sparingly. But when I do, I definitely notice a difference in the way my skin looks and feels. Anytime my skin is feeling especially dry or distressed I like to apply a little bit of this rich cream on my face and will wake up to a visibly brighter and restored complexion. Lately, I’ve been noticing some pesky lines to start forming on my neck and this cream has definitely helped to soften the appearance of [them].”—Lauren, Art Director

  5. 5. RevitaLash V'Lumine Lash Serum

    Investment: $85
    Why We Love It: 
    “After I had my first baby I noticed that my lashes were not as full as they were before. I really didn’t want to start getting lash extensions since that requires a lot of maintenance so I decided to give RevitaLash’s V’Lumine Lash Serum a try. I’ve been using this consistently for the past couple of months and I can say that this has changed the appearance of my lashes for the better. I definitely noticed a difference in the length of my lashes and now all I need is a little mascara to up the glam factor. You really don’t need to use a lot to see results so that in and of itself makes it worth the price.”—Amber, Buyer

  6. 6. Luzern Laboratories Force de Vie Nuit

    Investment: $200
    Why We Love It: 
    “This night cream smells like sweet citrus, feels like butter and seriously transforms your skin overnight. This was my first experience using a product with retinol, so I was a little hesitant to try it. Instead of waking up to red, irritated, dry skin, I saw smoother, brighter skin after just one use. Every time I use this, I never have to wear makeup the next day because my skin looks and feels that good.”—Kaitlin, Content & SEO Analyst

    7. SkinCeuticals Discoloration Defense

    Investment: $98
    Why We Love It: 
    “SkinCeuticals Discoloration Defense has been a game changer for me when I was experiencing some breakouts. I have hyperpigmentation from my stressed skin and within one week of using this product I noticed a significant difference in the appearance of my dark spots. I never want to go without it now!”—Allysa, Merchandising Director

  8. 8. FOREO LUNA™ 2 for Sensitive Skin

    Investment: $199

    Why We Love It: 

    “I’ve always been a fan of cleansing brushes because they make my skin look and feel smoother than if I use my hands alone. But what I like most about this cleansing brush is that I only have to charge it once every six to seven months (my Clarisonic had to be charged once every few days!). The brush head is also permanent and bacteria-resistant, so no need to buy replacement brushes every three months.”—Helen, Affiliate Marketing Manager

    Buy now with Dermstore

    9. ilike Organic Skin Care Complex Moisturizer

    Investment: $94
    Why We Love It: 
    “I fell in love with the Hyaluronic Time Erase Complex Moisturizer after using a sample size. It’s up there at $94 for a face moisturizer, but compared to other prestige brand HA moisturizers, it’s pretty comparable in price. Where this wins for me is in the texture and results. I loved it so much I bought one for my mom and sister immediately! My sister said, “It feels like silk” going on. She nailed that description—it feels very luxurious, light and deeply moisturizing at the same time. It makes my skin feel soft and helps give a teensy bit of dewy glow. Whenever I’m running low, I will move other parts of my monthly budget so that I can buy this again!”—Kat, Marketing Director

  10. 10. PCA Skin Weightless Protection Broad Spectrum SPF 45

    Investment: $49
    Why We Love It: 
    “I have sensitive skin so it’s always been a struggle for me to find a good sunscreen that doesn’t make me break out. Luckily, PCA Skin’s Weightless Protection Broad Spectrum SPF 45 does just that! I love the lightweight, whipped texture and how I can wear this under my makeup. A little goes a long way with this product so you are really getting the most bang for your buck.”—Andie, Buyer

    Buy now with Dermstore

    11. slip Queen Pure Silk Pillowcase

    Investment: $79
    Why We Love It: 
    “I know, $80 for one piece of pillowcase can be a stretch. But silk pillowcases cause less friction and don’t suck moisture out of your skin and hair like a regular cotton pillowcase, which means less wrinkles and frizz. If you have sensitive skin that’s prone to acne, rosacea or eczema, you’ll find this more comfortable to sleep on because the material will feel softer against your skin. Also, these pillowcases are pretty durable. If you wash them carefully, [they] will last you quite a long time.”—Mel, Graphic Designer

    12. Sunday Riley U.F.O. Ultra-Clarifying Acne Treatment Face Oil

    Investment: $80
    Why We Love It: 
    “After meeting with the brand, I learned a pro tip of combining skin care with makeup. I like to mix one or two drops of this serum into my foundation and it has truly changed my makeup application for the better. After incorporating this step, I noticed a difference in my complexion which looks more even, but most all this has really helped to reduce redness and future breakouts. I like to think that this product actually saves me money since I don’t have to use a primer anymore!”—Annie, Beauty Editor
