14 Best Facial Masks

It's hard to deny the satisfying experience of a spa treatment. The feeling of pampering yourself and giving your skin some much needed TLC. The pleasure of relaxation and allowing your mind, body and soul the chance to escape from reality -- for a few minutes, at least. Massages, hot tubs and aromatic meditation rooms all rank high on the self-indulgence scale, but spoiling yourself with a full-blown beauty treatment takes the cake. And one of the best ways to treat your skin (while still enjoying a little time off) is with face masks.   read more

14 Best Lipsticks

We kiss with them, we sip with them, we angle them with finesse to create coy little smiles -- they're one of the sexiest parts of the body, and paired with the right gloss, balm, stick or stain, can make an onlooker weak at the knees.   See the products

10 Best Eczema Treatments Under $14

Anyone who suffers from eczema knows how tricky it is to find a product that will provide more than just temporary relief. When your dry, itchy skin keeps you up and scratching all night, it's time to take some action.

15 Best Classic Beauty Products

We call them classic beauty products for a reason. They've been around for ages and have become staples in our makeup bags and bathroom cabinets. You know the beauty products we're talking about -- the ones your mother (or even grandmother) used that eventually (against your strongest will) became your favorites.   See products

9 Best Self-Tanners

The last thing you want to hear in your head after slathering on a self-tanner is that Oompa-Loompa song. We've all been duped by too-orange self-tanners, no? Nothing's worse than trying to do the right thing by avoiding the sun and arduously applying a lotion, cream, foam, gel or spray to your body, only to wind up with dark elbows and streaky legs.   See products

12 Best Products for Curly Hair

Those of us with curly hair know it can be both a blessing and a curse. When it behaves, nothing's better than having a head full of perfect ringlets or waves that cascade over your shoulders. But when it's acting ornery or piqued -- look out. Thirsty, frizzy, stressed-out curls are never pretty. And when we try to wrestle those same misbehaving curls into submission, it only makes things worse. (Because, really, the only thing that looks worse than fried curls are fried curls that have been further fried in an attempt to make them behave.)   Best curl products

13 Best Summer Hair Care Products -- and the 2 Worst

Summer is an invitation for a more lackadaisical approach to hair. (Hallelujah!) It means letting bangs grow out, letting hair air-dry, getting beachy waves from actually going to the beach and covering up unwashed summer hair with floppy hats. But with the season also comes certain summer hair hazards, like chlorine, UV rays, salt water and humidity -- all of which can lead to pool-hair, fried scalps and frizzy, dried-out, damaged strands.   See products

10 Best Blushes -- and the 4 Worst

If there's one product in your makeup bag that can immediately brighten your complexion, it's blush. In fact, most makeup artists will tell you that your face makeup isn't complete until you've dusted a rosy glow across your cheeks. And then, presto change-o: What once was tired, sallow-looking skin is healthy and radiant.   See blushes

16 Best Toners and Astringents

Everyone likes a good debate, right? Coffee lovers argue with tea aficionados on what's a better source of caffeine; children fight over the virtues of chocolate versus vanilla ice cream; and in this office, we have lively discussions (alright, they're fights) about toners: Do they play a critical role in a skin care regimen or are they an unnecessary step in the cleanse-tone-moisturize process?   See products

Discover which brands and formulas received the most upward facing thumbs -- you just might discover your new foundation fix.   Best foundations

14 Best Color Protecting Shampoos

Want your money to wash down the drain right along with your freshly done, beautiful hair color? We thought not. It makes no sense to spend a fortune on coloring your hair at a salon only to use hair care products that strip the color at home. So stocking up on proper hair care products post-treatment is an absolute must. Typically, your hairstylist will suggest that you use a color-safe shampoo and conditioner after you get all-over color or highlights to maintain the hue and prevent fading color. However, they might also try to sucker you into buying hair care products that are too pricey -- and ones you're not sure you'll even like.   See products

12 Best Sunscreens for Your Face

Not to rain on your summer parade, but here are a few facts that should wake you up from your margarita-and-sun-induced coma, forcing you to take a big whiff of sunscreen: The incidence of melanoma (a deadly form of skin cancer) isn't going anywhere -- an estimated 73,870 new cases of invasive melanoma will be diagnosed in the US in 2015. If that doesn't scare you, this will: 80 percent of the aging that dermatologists see is due to excess sun exposure, since it can break down the collagen and elastin in your skin and cause more wrinkles.   See products

For soft, manageable, beautiful hair, it's important to choose the best leave-in conditioner for your hair type. A good leave-in conditioner can help detangle strands, reduce fly-aways, tame frizz and keep curls soft and smooth; one that's too heavy can weigh it down or leave it looking greasy.   see products

Are you familiar with microdermabrasion? Here's the deal: Microdermabrasion uses physical exfoliation to slough away the top layer of skin to give it a healthy glow and help increase cell turnover.
