One question we're asked all the time: What beauty products can't you live without? We're lucky enough to get out check out new launches before they hit stores (yes, one of the perks of the job -- but who's bragging?). So without further ado, we'll share some of the stuff we love right now.
(See our interview with the ageless beauty guru Christie Brinkley above).
Fresh Rose deep hydration face cream: This is, bar none, one of our favorite brands. Not only does everything smell absolutely delectable, but the products are gentle and do the job without breaking your bank. Plus, this cream screams summer.
Lancer makeup removal wipes: Kim Kardashian loves this brand. And we know why. The products are so very, very gentle. We especially love these babies, which cleanse your skin without irritating it.
Lancome ABSOLUE PREMIUM Bx eye cream: You know how you sometimes get home from work and your eyes are all tired and unhappy? This magic cream will do the trick -- it's refreshing, invigorating and oh so moisturizing.
Dior One Essential eye serum: So yes, Bella Hadid is the new face of Dior beauty. She's got pretty great skin. Having tried the One Essential line ourselves, we can attest to its efficacy. It's a one-stop shop for radiance.
L'Occitane Immortelle Divine Cream: The entire Divine collection is just that. But for those who need a little extra moisture, try this concoction. It smells -- heavenly. Actually, divine, but that might be overkill.
Drunk Elephant Lala Retro whipped cream: First off, the name is sheer genius. But beyond the moniker, this killer line is formulated without toxins, sensitizers and irritants. It takes years off your face.
Kate Somerville Goat Milk moisturizing cream: Her skin clinic is Hollywood's top beauty destination. And after you try Kate Somerville's Goat Milk creation, you'll see why.
ReVive balancing toner: This was the secret to Saoirse Ronan's dewy glow at the Tonys, giving the actress her youthful, healthy glow.
