Long lashes, luscious lips, smooth skin. Whatever you're craving, it can be tough to find a product that does the trick.
Wouldn't it be great if someone smudged, slathered and styled for you? Here we'll show you the best of the best in new hair, skin and cosmetic products.
Whether it's a night on the town or a day at work, finding the right beauty product can be a job in itself!
So, how do you choose from what's hitting store shelves without having a makeup meltdown? SELF magazine asked readers to test more than 1,000 new hair, skin, and cosmetic products and rate them based on things like texture, color and ease of use. Prices ranged from $3 for a product to $120 for a product.
Helping you put your best face forward, a cleanser left testers feeling healthy and hydrated. Clark's Marine Cream floated to the top of the moisturizer category.
And if you're looking to peel away dry, damaged skin "prescriptives won for the best at-home peel," says Elaine d'Farley. "The company says that it's as strong as a glycolic peel that you can get at the doctor's office, and people really felt like that was true."
Readers also raved about the Best Body Scrub by Origins. Even the jar was a hit.
And the winning bubble bath by Sephora left this tester feeling "bubbly," says Michelle Addimando.
"The bubbles stay the entire bath instead of, kind of, withering down. And it made your body feel very soft afterward."
In the makeup category, Redpoint's Chubby Concealer Wand brushed aside the competition. Top it off with the winning powder blush, a mineral miracle from Jane Iredale.
Finally, save some water and the environment by spraying Ojon's dry shampoo. It's this year's newest hair hit.
"You put it in your hair and it helps sop up the oil on your scalp so that your hair looks clean," d'Farley says.
