Our favorite skincare products and where to get them

Get the dish on the products our Internet-savvy team swears by.

Kiehl's ultra facial moisturizer sunscreen

Kiehls

Use this daily to protect your skin from UV and UVB rays — it's a staple for our editor-in-chief, Kelly Waggoner. "Huge fan of Kiehl's Ultra Facial Moisturizer SPF 30 (and anything Kiehl's generally). If I ever leave my house again, I'll get back to using Murad's Oil and Pore Control Mattifier in SPF 45," says Waggoner.

Biossance squalane oil

Biossance squalane oil

Your skin makes squalane naturally, but it starts to slow down after you turn 20. "I hopped on the squalane train because I was dealing with really dry skin. I slather it on before bed and wake up to skin that's still moisturized — a rarity during Minnesota winters, " says Amy Stoltenberg, writer at finder.

Jade Roller

Jade roller

My favorite skincare product is actually this beauty tool: a jade roller," says Cheryl Wagemann, finder's shopping editor. "Aside from sitting pretty on my bathroom vanity, it reduces puffiness when late nights turn into early mornings. I like to pop mine in the freezer for 10 minutes before using it and then roll over my jawline, cheeks and under eye area to look well-rested.

Pro tip — jade rollers work wonderfully in tandem with face oil.

la roche possay

La Roche-Posay Effaclar Deep Cleansing Foaming Cream Cleanser

Looking for a face wash that'll shrunk your pores without drying out your skin? Our shopping writer, Thea Glassman, suggests La Roche-Posay Effaclar Deep Cleansing Foaming Cream Cleanser. "It's really lightweight, gentle and non-irritating, which is super helpful when you have acne-prone skin. My skin has definitely been much less oily since I've started using it," says Glassman.

Palmers skin therapy face oil and cocoa buttermassage lotion

Palmers Skin Therapy Face Oil and Cocoa Butter Massage Lotion

Famous for its coco butter formula, Palmers offers many products under $10 and is stocked at most drug stores. Our client services coordinator, Tina Gao, raves about it. "Its products are unscented, all natural, super hydrating and lightweight. I'm comparing this against Khiels (which also has great products but started to irritate my skin). The massage lotion is meant to be stretch mark cream but I've been using this for years now as lotion for my face.

Avene Eau Thermale Gel Cleanser and Thermal Spring Water Cooling Spray

Avene Eau Thermale Gel Cleanser and Thermal Spring Water Cooling Spray

If you're all about maintaining that natural ph balance on your face, you'll love this cleanser. It's free of soap, and won't strip your skin of natural oils, but also has sebo-regulating monolaurin to cool down overproductive glands. It's perfect for acne-prone and sensitive skin," says our Melanie Huddart, our copy editor who adopted these products into her routine after moving from Canada to the Dominican Republic.
