The #ProductEmpties We Loved to the Last Drop
From new finds to longtime favorites, these are beauty products that our editors use until the bitter end (of the tube)
During my tenure as a beauty editor, I've had facialists and dermatologists criticize my exfoliating routine as both overkill and insufficient -- regardless of how much I was actually scrubbing at the time. It left me confused and annoyed, and I mostly gave up physical exfoliants, opting for acids instead.
Then, I met Gwyneth Paltrow (queue the choir of angels singing -- or devils laughing, depending on your position on one of the most polarizing women in Hollywood) who uses her Goop by Juice Beauty Exfoliating Instant Facial, $125, daily. Of all the products in her Goop line, it's the one she was most enthusiastic about, and, naturally, the one I was most excited to try.
And it didn't disappoint -- it's a dream of a scrub. With a combination of supertiny, plant-based beads and acids like glycolic, lactic and salicylic, it leaves skin baby soft and glowing but never red (it also contains B5 to calm). Plus, it's natural and free of parabens, phthalates, dyes and fragrances.
This scrub has seamlessly become part of my morning routine: I use it in the shower after cleansing -- my makeup has never looked better. In the words of GP: It's all easy. --Dawn Davis
