“I’ve been obsessed with the Rhode's Peptide Lip Treatment since Hailey Bieber launched her brand, but it's become a staple in my routine in the colder weather. I love how it feels cushiony and ultra-nourishing while doubling as a super shiny lip gloss.” — Catherine Santino, beauty news writer, TZR

“My hands dry out easily, even more so now that it's wintertime. I like to use hydrating and buttery-rich hand creams, so right now my favorite is this Josie Maran formula.” —Marina Liao, senior fashion news editor, TZR

“I was recently introduced to Kosas Revealer Concealer and I'm forever converted. It's an incredibly creamy, hydrating formula and visibly brightens my whole face. It also does not crease, even after a full day of wear.” — Rebecca Iloulian, newsletter revenue and marketing director, BDG

"I dread the winter (especially the havoc it wreaks on my skin), so I apply a combination of humectants and occlusives throughout the day, starting with this rose water spray. It opens up my pores and allows my skin to absorb serum like a refreshing drink of water." — Kathy Lee, editor-in-chief, TZR

"This is the perfect balm-lipstick hybrid from French makeup artist Violette, and I’m obsessed. It has a unique, sheer, waxy matte formula, so it gives lips a just-bitten look. I’ve been using shade Sucette as my go-to winter lip color for a berry flush.” — Faith Xue, executive beauty director, BDG

Universal Triple Action Daily Peel
“A gentle facial peel sounds like an oxymoron, but these single-dose pads by BeautyStat are efficacious without being too harsh on my sensitive skin. The exfoliating acids slough away dead skin cells for a smoother, brighter complexion — without irritation.” — Erin Lukas, deputy beauty editor, TZR

“In times of stress (i.e. the entire holiday season), a transportive fragrance is key. This ELOREA scent is so aptly named — the rich, inviting notes of creamy woods, vanilla, and roses really are heavenly, and more than a little calming to breathe in all day.” — Amanda Ross, beauty editor, TZR
“I had the opportunity to spend the week exploring the British Virgin Islands by boat and with all the beach hopping and ocean dips, I needed to keep my hair routine minimal. This one-and-done texturizing spray was a lifesaver for keeping my curls in check!” —Angela Melero, executive editor, TZR

“I almost never wear a full face of makeup, but with the holidays coming up I wanted to up my game. Tarte’s Face Tape foundation goes on really smoothly, doesn’t feel at all cake-y, and lasts literally all day. Plus, a little bit goes a long way.” —Kathryn Kattalia, director of content strategy, BDG

“I’m not a lipstick person, but secretly want to be. This buildable color lets me try that identity on without fully committing. The pink shade is particularly worth trying: It looks intimidating, but brightens the face without feeling like a full-on look.” — Alison Syrett, deputy fashion editor, TZR
