Ahead, our top picks for June.


June 2017

"Pollution—which we have an abundance of in LA—causes skin to look gray and speckled. This serum targets the greyness (along with redness and dark spots), and I'm already noticing the brightening benefits after a few weeks. It's definitely worth the price tag." —Nicky Deam, Editorial Director

“I tried this lightweight serum for the first time recently, and have never woken up with softer skin in my life. It's hard to find a face oil that doesn't just look pretty but actually works, too, and this one has it all. It's now part of my nightly ritual—I love going to bed feeling this luxe.” —Rebecca Iloulian, Marketing Manager

“I've been struggling with random, under-the-skin cystic breakouts, which has become a huge frustration because they are painful, long-lasting and just not cute. (Also, hi, not a teenager anymore.) Renée Rouleau's Anti-Cyst Treatment has been very helpful in reducing the size of these pesky pimples. At any sign of inflammation on my skin, I dab the treatment on the affected area right away, and repeat for the next few days. The spot is a lot less red and much smaller. You just have to remember to apply right away when you see anything surfacing!" —Amy Lee, Fashion Editor

“I have been really into masks lately, so I'm always on the hunt for something that will hydrate my super-dry skin. This does the trick!” —Leah Benzie, Social Media Editor

“This water-based foundation is so light and hydrating that my skin has actually gotten better since I started wearing it. It never looks cakey, and I love how glowy it makes my skin. But the best part is since it's so creamy, you can apply it with your fingers like you would your moisturizer.” —Stephanie Montes, Beauty Director

“I love everything by this brand, but their Rose Hibiscus Face Mist is definitely my favorite. It's the perfect midday pick-me-up when my skin is feeling dry (or I'm just feeling tired). It also feels extra refreshing after a day in the sun, and cooling on my bright red skin post-workout. Clearly I use it all the time—and I just ran out, so I'll be stocking up for June!” —Lauren Black, Content Analyst

“My skin is naturally oily, and the shine really goes into full effect as the weather gets warmer. This tinted moisturizer is great in that it's lightweight, yet delivers nice coverage for my day-to-day routine. And it's mattifying, so it helps keep shine away.”—Angela Melero, Managing Editor

“Never before had I experienced a sunburn until I took a trip to the Caribbean and subsequently witnessed my exposed skin transform into a lobster that had been cooked to perfection. I’ve since become very diligent in applying sunscreen, and this one does the trick without being filmy or cakey."—Samantha McDonald, News Editor

“Two things I love: Champagne and voluminous hair. But the body and shine of my strands has been lacking since I had a Brazilian blowout a few months ago. This mist boosts roots and adds moisture and shine to my hair without weighing it down."—Laura Lajiness, Fashion Editor

“The second I saw this palette I knew I had to have it—and it did not disappoint. The bronzer is subtle, even on my super fair skin, and gives my face just a touch of warmth. And the highlighters are beyond. One is an apricot shade with a touch of gold, the other is a rose gold and I honestly can't decide which I love more. They both glide on so easily and give the perfect beachy glow.” —Allie Flinn, Associate Lifestyle Editor

"I'm addicted to sheet masks—I use them every day—and this one is extra special because it hydrates while delivering otherwise drying retinol to the skin.” —Erin Bunch, Senior Lifestyle Editor

"I got this oil fairly recently and am already noticing a pretty major difference in my skin. I put it on before bed and wake up with noticeably brighter, smoother skin. Love it." —Alyson Fishbein, Senior Manager, Social Media

“I was dying to try a gold face mask after seeing them all over Instagram and learning that they’re a fave of celebrities. I finally got my hands on one that wasn’t upwards of $300, and included treatments for the neck and décolleté as well. My skin felt firm, but not tight, after and I had such a glow. This one gets an A+ from me.”—Andrea Navarro, Associate Beauty Editor
