How to Curate the Ultimate Fall Beauty Lineup, According to an Astrologer

I'll be honest. I'd never really considered incorporating astrology into my beauty routine in any way until I chatted with astrologer Susan Miller. With celebrity fans including Emma Roberts, Jennifer Aniston, and Jessica Alba, and a wildly popular monthly zodiac predictions website, Astrology Zone, under her belt, I trust her guidance wholeheartedly. Luckily for us, Miller has partnered with Brandshare to release an astrology-based beauty box, which was created with people's individual signs and elements in mind.Naturally, because I'm a beauty- (and astrology-) obsessed editor, I had a few questions for Miller about her process. I definitely had to know how she goes about selecting products for water, earth, fire, and air signs. That way, I could relay the information and keep it in the b...

This $20 Jelly-Like Serum Gave Me Plump and Bouncy Skin

Photo: Versed This serum contains a mix of super hydrating ingredients, including hyaluronic acid, polyglutamic acid, and snow mushroom extract. By now, we're probably all familiar with hyaluronic acid. It's a powerful humectant, which means it attracts (and holds) water in the skin, replenishing cell hydration. While very different than hyaluronic acid, polyglutamic acid serves a similar functi...

I've Been a Beauty Writer for Years—This Magical Primer Is the Best I've Used

Sunscreen and primers have become two of the most important parts of my beauty routine. I’ve become an ardent SPF user for obvious "protecting my skin against damage and cancer" reasons. And primer is always key for helping foundation go on smoother and look flawless—even more so when you have large pores and skin that's 40 years old like mine. I can’t stand it when my foundation seeps into my pores and settles into my lines. No, thank you. Lately, I’ve been seeing more and more products that are a combination of SPF and primer, and if I can take a step away from my routine, I’ll happily welcome it! This is why I was so excited to get my hands on Saint Jane Beauty's Luxury Sun Ritual Pore Smoothing SPF 30 ($38). Saint Jane is a brand that I’ve been a fan of since its debut in 2019. The Hyd...

Summer Fridays' New SPF Just Might Be the Brand's Best Product Launch Yet

At this point, I add anything new from Summer Fridays to my cart almost immediately. No questions asked. I've already confessed my undying love for the brand's Overtime Mask ($46) and Heavenly Sixteen Face Oil ($55), but today I want to chat about the brand's latest offering—its new SPF. I know, I'm sure you're already overwhelmed by the amount of sunscreen content on the internet telling you which one to buy. It feels like every summer, there are ten million new options to choose from. But let me tell you exactly who this sunscreen is for. If you like being protected from the sun, but dislike slathering on a white, heavy substance in addition to your skincare, then this one is for you. Summer Fridays is offering a new kind of SPF. One with a milky, serum-like texture that melts into your ...

The 15 Best Drugstore Face Sunscreens of 2022

Photo: @kaitlyn_mclintock When it comes to sunscreen, there are two universal truths. The first is that it's intrinsic to any skincare routine. (Please, please, please practice safe sun, people!) The second is that you don't have to pay an exorbitant amount of money to get a quality formula. After all, effective doesn't mean expensive. That goes for face sunscreen too. Just because it comes from...
