“In the past, I’ve made many at-home face masks with coffee grounds and other skin-loving ingredients like olive oil or oatmeal. Instead of using leftover grounds from my daily cup, I’m leveling up with this triple-threat Turkish coffee mask that acts as a scrub, mask, and moisturizer. With coffee for exfoliation, avocado oil to reduce inflammation, and antioxidant-packed cacao to moisturize and protect, I’m predicting that my skin will be way more radiant than after using my usual DIY masks. Plus, the added ceramides and niacinamide add extra glow support—and I no longer have to wait for my coffee to brew before applying my mask.” — Stephanie Valente, Associate Editor
“I’ve always heard beauty editors and dermatologists raving about the hydrating powers of hyaluronic acid, but I’ve yet to add one to my skin-care routine. This fall, I decided I would actually, finally commit to getting my skin ready for winter by stocking up on moisturizing and skin-barrier-supporting products now—rather than waiting until the cold weather really hits and my cranky skin starts begging me for more moisture.
“The HA-Revive Hyaluronic Drops—available exclusively at Saks Fifth Avenue—are formulated to attract moisture to the skin to provide a plump, smoothing effect. Since the texture of my skin tends to become rough when it needs more hydration, I’m excited to put this product to the smooth-skin test by adding four to six drops directly to my skin or two to three drops mixed into my moisturizer.” — Erin Flynn, Senior Editor
“While I realize I have never once noticed someone else’s under eye circles, my own have always bothered me, so I’m most excited about this cream’s brightening benefits. I have sensitive skin that responds best when I use fewer products, which means I’m always on the hunt for high-quality products that are made specifically for sensitive skin. This eye cream checks both of those boxes—I know Tata Harper is trusted by plenty of beauty editors and enthusiasts out there—which is why I’ll definitely be adding it to my routine.” —Kendall Wenaas, Associate Editor
“I’ve been looking for a facial oil to add to my morning routine, and I’ve been struggling with dry skin for the last year or so—perhaps due to over-washing and double-masking—and am looking for a solution that works for someone who also has sensitive skin. I’m adding this face oil to my must-have list to help hydrate my skin with its cold-pressed seed oils and essential amino acids—in hopes it helps me get my glow back.” —Lindsay Guim, Senior Designer
“I already have my facial serums, oils, and creams, so the only thing that is truly missing from my well-rounded routine is an effective eye treatment, and any product with the word ‘matrix’ in its name has my attention. I’m hoping the Advanced Night Repair Eye Concentrate Matrix will complete my daily routine, because I struggle with puffy and dark under-eyes, and have been long-searching for a solid product to help mitigate my concerns. With the eye concentrate’s double dose of hyaluronic acid, I’ll be able to get the supportive treatment I need (and de-stress the skin around my eyes).” — Madison Bolatto, Digital Designer
“What caught my attention about this product was that it’s not only a cleansing balm and a makeup-removing oil, but it also nourishes and hydrates the skin. My skin craves extra care in the colder months, and standard cleansers never seem gentle enough, so I’m angling this balm as my golden ticket. With its all-day skin softening properties thanks to essential oils (like lavender and eucalyptus plus an elderberry oil infusion) and fatty acids, I’m hoping adding ingredients like luxurious rose and mimosa wax to the cleansing step of my skin-care routine will do the trick this fall.” — Danielle Beckford, Assistant Editor
