Here, our top picks for February.


"I’ve been using this elixir at night for 3 weeks and I’m totally obsessed."

— Rachel Zoe, Editor-in-Chief

"I've been getting lazy on my skincare routine lately, and it shows. My shameful neglect in combination with the winter chill has made my skin feel dry and look dull. This cocktail of vitamins and antioxidants brought my complexion back to life after just one application. I loved it so much, I even slathered it on my dry cuticles and ends of my hair."

—Stephanie Montes, Senior Beauty Editor

"I'm always on the hunt for new nail polish colors. OPI's just-launched Hello Kitty line has a bunch of festive colors, including a few bubblegum pinks that are made for summer—but will also add a cheerful vibe to any black and gray winter wardrobe."

—Shannon Nash, Jewelry & Accessories Editor

"My skin has been all over the place this month (breakouts, dry patches, flakiness) and this deep-cleansing mask's calming effect has alleviated my skin's irritations. Also, there's a tingly, cooling sensation when it's on that's really relaxing."

Laura Lajiness, New York Editor

"At this stage of winter there is not enough bronzer in the world to revive my pallid complexion. Instead of turning myself a shade of orange, I've been adding a drop of this luminizer to my tinted moisturizer to look less like a corpse."

Nicky Deam, Editorial Director

"I've always been enamored by the '70s, so you can imagine my excitement when I heard Marisa Berenson launched a beauty line fueled by organic prickly pear extract. I quickly snagged the face oil for a luxurious winter treat. From the shiny gold bottle to the earthy scent, it feels decadent and leaves my skin hydrated and glowing. Call it the gypset placebo effect, but whatever it is, I'm hooked."

—Jaclyn Decell, Social Media Manager

"As a big proponent of dry shampoo, I've tried a lot of different kinds—and all I ask is that they actually do what they promise, which is effectively soak up oil (and thus allow me to avoid washing my hair until it's absolutely necessary). Unwash Dry Cleanser is the latest discovery that fits my criteria—it keeps me from looking like a greaseball and builds texture in between washes."

—Kristi Mikesky, Features Editor
