Editors’ beauty picks: Our faves right now


We consider ourselves natural beauty connoisseurs, having tried and tested it all.

So while we love to profile the 5 Beauty Obsessions of wellness mavens, we thought we’d dish on the end-of-summer skin-care and makeup staples we’re using right now.

Here’s a glimpse at the beauty products Well+Good writers and founders are currently obsessed with.



Get Started

Kahina Argan Oil ($36-$82)

All the hot yoga classes I take really dry out my hair. This helps put some of the moisture back in. —Rosa Levitan, social media associate and writer



W3ll People Universalist Multi-Use Stick ($33)

I’m notoriously lazy about makeup, but I know I can swipe this bronzing stick (I like Peachy Pink Bronze) on my cheeks, eyelids, and lips, and pass for someone who looks like she spends way more time on it. —Melisse Gelula, co-founder


Suki Exfoliating Foaming Facial Wash ($32.95)

I’ve always loved multi-taskers, and I really got addicted to this one over the summer. I still use a mild cleanser, then follow with this product, which I leave on for a few minutes so that it acts as a gentle peel.—Alexia Brue, co-founder


OCC Lip Tar ($14.50)

Long lasting (like, all day), intense (you only need a tiny dab!) lip color without the chemicals. Shades range from office-friendly nudes/neutrals to the brightest reds, pinks, and purples you’ve ever seen. One downside: they do dry out your lips. —Lisa Elaine Held, senior staff writer


Conduit by Spa Ritual ($12)

I love these clean, vegan nail polishes, and this bronzy-gold shade is fun and sophisticated at the same time. It’s perfect for end of summer, start of fall. —Jenna Holt, intern and writer



Block Island Organic Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30+ ($34)

I’m super fair and spend a lot of time outside year-round, so I use sunscreen everyday. Twice a day? Melisse recently turned me on to this new one, and I really like it. —Ann Abel, contributor, fitness and travel


Clarisonic ($165)

I couldn’t live without this gadget. I got my first one in 2008 and have been using it pretty much every day since. It’s the best thing for softening and evening out my skin and, facials aside, it’s the only thing I’ve found to help get rid of blackheads and reduce pore size. —Sharon Feiereisen, contributor, beauty and lifestyle


Rahua Leave-in Finishing Crème ($45)

I have tried pretty much every hair-nourisher out there, and I get so many compliments on my thick, out-of-control hair when I use this leave-in conditioner. —Melisse Gelula, co-founder


H. Wood Lip Scrub ($20)

I’m absolutely in love with this sugar lip scrub. It makes my lips so soft and shiny! I never knew I needed such a product, and now I can’t live without it. —Jenna Holt, intern and writer




Red Flower Bioactive Berry White Peat Exfoliant ($61.95)

It does double-duty for face and body and is even gentle enough for my particular skin. —Ann Abel, contributor, fitness and travel







RMS Living Luminizer ($38)

I use this everyday—with or without a lot of other products—and I get anxious when I can’t find it in my handbag. So I just ordered two more. —Alexia Brue, co-founder



Sprout All-Natural Citrus Lip Balm ($5)

It’s like high-brow, handcrafted Burt’s Bees, with a zesty finish. I love how moisturizing it is, that it’s handmade in Brooklyn, and what a clean ingredient list it has.—Lisa Elaine Held, senior staff writer






Tatcha Aburatorigami Japanese Blotting Papers ($12)

Between work, spin class, and summer in New York, my makeup doesn’t stand a chance. These get rid of extra sweat and oil without messing up my makeup, and the packaging is so elegant I almost don’t want to use them!—Rosa Levitan, social media associate and writer
