14 Best Powders

When it comes to face makeup, most of us will go to amazing lengths in order to find that perfect product. That one foundation, powder or concealer that completely hides spots, minimizes lines and creates an overall flawless finish. (Does one such product even exist?!) We will spend a ton of cash -- maybe not on one product, but on the hundreds we've tested in a lifetime -- read reviews until we're dizzy and, of course, allow makeup artist after makeup artist to convince us that their product is the best. That's a lot of work for a category of makeup that shouldn't really get noticed, right? Well, in order to put an end to this madness and to hopefully save you a few bucks, we thought we'd share a list of the top-rated face powders according to our readers.   See powders

12 Best Eye Creams

If you're one of the many women who think eye creams are just another way for the cosmetic industry to get you to buy more skin care products, dermatologist Kenneth Beer, MD, PA, says you should reconsider. The skin around your eye is the thinnest layer of skin on your entire body, and therefore the most sensitive, he says. So using a cream made specifically for your eyes is crucial, especially as you age.   See eye creams

Every once in a while it's necessary to treat yourself, whether it's indulging in the chocolate-encrusted doughnut you cut out of your diet months ago or spending a luxurious day at the spa. Yet when we pamper ourselves, a hair treatment isn't always top of mind. We often forget about our poor hair, which we subject to heat styling, hair dye and other chemical-laden products.   See products

Editors' Pick: 12 Best Foundations

Finding the best foundation can feel a bit like winning the lottery. More so than any other beauty product, foundation can make or break your entire look -- and the trial and error process to find the right formula can be arduous. Got oily skin?

20 Best Soaps

Soap was probably the first beauty item you were ever introduced to. But what defines the soap of the new millennium?

Whether we like it or not, sunscreen is a must for all of us. And according to Heidi Waldorf, M.D., of Waldorf Dermatology & Laser Associates in Nanuet, NY, we need "an SPF of at least 15 daily." For prolonged sun exposure (anything more than the incidental exposure you might get from driving or working near a window), she recommends an SPF of 30 above with a water-resistant formula. She also suggests choosing a sunscreen containing titanium dioxide, zinc oxide, avobenzone or mexoryl as its active ingredient.   See sunscreens
