Here at RZHQ, we love trying new beauty products—and it’s not lost on us that we’re lucky to have access to the latest and greatest from tried-and-true brands, as well as emerging lines. But what good would it be if we kept our of-the-moment faves to ourselves? Each month, we share our current obsessions in hopes that you’ll love them just as much as we do. Ahead, our top picks for December.
Editors' Picks For Best Beauty Products: December 2017
Rose Jam Shower Gel
"This body wash smells and feels absolutely luxurious, because it is. The ingredients can only be sourced in limited quantities and it's only available in the full-size bottles during the holiday season, so I try to stock up on it for the entire year before it sells out. It makes a fabulous gift, too!"
—Lauren Black, Content Analyst
IGK 1995 2-in-1 Shampoo and Texturizer
"Whatever is in this product has saved me from many a bad hair day, which happens more than usual during finicky New York City fall and winter weather. I'd use it for every shampoo, but I'm on a ramen noodle budget thanks to heavy Christmas shopping, so I occasionally swap it with another IGK set (shout-out to 30,000 Feet)—and now you know the secret to my good hair days."
—Samantha McDonald, News Editor
"I finally started using heat protectant and am obsessed with this mist by Ouai. It gives my strands a super-shiny finish without weighing them down."
—Laura Lajiness, Senior Fashion Editor
m-61 PowerGlow Peel
"My skin always looks a bit dull and dry while traveling, but these peels bring it back to life after multiple flights! I now swear by them year-round."
—Alyson Fishbein, Senior Manager, Social Media
Hanacure The All-In-One Facial Starter
Barneys New York
"I plan to use this New Year's Eve and New Year's Day to make it look like 2018 never happened."
—Erin Bunch, Lifestyle Contributor
Rodin Luxe Lipstick
"I'm usually not one for wearing a bold red lip during the day, but this creamy lipstick feels so good on that I've changed my ways."
—Marisa Runyon, Director of TV & Digital Video
IT Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC Cream
"This lightweight CC cream gives my face a flawless, even-toned finish while deeply moisturizing my skin. It's a game changer."
—Rebecca Iloulian, Marketing Manager, Partnerships & CRM
Shu Uemura Texture Wave – Dry Texturizing Spray
Barneys New York
"I've been rocking a bob for the past year, and I've come to rely heavily on texturizing spray to give my hair that lived-in, tousled look that's all over Pinterest right now. I love this formula because it doesn't leave my hair feeling stiff, sticky or weighed down (I have a lot of hair, so the lighter it feels, the better!). I literally just run a few strands through a curling iron, spritz, fluff and go."
—Angela Melero, Managing Editor
RMS Beauty Luminizer Quad
"I'm obsessed with this palette and how dewy it makes me look. The creamy shades melt right into my skin and never look glittery. It just gives my cheekbones that extra something."
—Stephanie Montes, Beauty Director
BY TERRY Baume de Rose
"The most luxurious lip balm ever. It feels amazing on, the consistency isn't sticky and it leaves your lips pillowy and soft. The rose scent is lovely and not potent."
—Amy Lee, Fashion Editor
KKW Crystal Gardenia
"I am in no way surprised that Kim Kardashian's new fragrance, Crystal Gardenia, smells as airy and floral as it does. I'm literally obsessed and wear it every single day."
—Andrea Navarro, Associate Beauty Editor
Mothership II: Sublime Palette
Pat McGrath Labs
"This would be a major splurge, but I'd love nothing more than to slather these luscious shades all across my eyelids."
—Kristin Mahler, Graphic Designer
Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer
"I bit the bullet and bought the Dyson blow-dryer. It's amazing and my hair already feels less damaged."
—Nicky Deam, Editorial Director
