Jan Marini Skin Research
If you know Jan Marini Skin Research, you’re familiar with the Skin Care Management System, a complete skin-care regimen that’s tailored to your skin’s needs. However, Sharlena Hassani, aesthetician and owner of Artisan of Skin LA, opened our eyes to another best-seller she says is a “big-time favorite” of all of her Beverly Hills’ clients: the Cranberry Orange Exfoliator. “It offers all three forms of exfoliation for a really deep clean,” she says. Plus, it smells like the holidays. “It’s so popular that some of my clients will buy three to hold them throughout the year.”

Ever Skincare’s mission is simple: Empower women to age with confidence and to feel like they can age well. “The skin care you used in your twenties and thirties just isn’t going to cut it in your forties and fifties as you experience the hormonal imbalances that come with menopause,” Heather Wilson, director of marketing for Ever Skincare, tells us.
Wilson describes the Daily At-Home Facial as the “cornerstone” to the brand. It includes the three products women are most often missing from their routine, which also happen to be the same products that address the three main shifts that happen to the skin as we begin to experience hormonal changes. Also a favorite, the Smooth Peptide Lip Therapy—a NewBeauty readers choice winner—offers peptides and a wash of color for a more youthful-looking pout from the inside-out.

ZO Skin Health
So much more than your average serum, Renee Pedroza, head of global marketing for ZO Skin Health, says the brand’s Illuminating AOX Serum is packed with antioxidants, helps to support and restore the skin barrier, and helps to battle “inflammaging, which is that chronic inflammation that over time leads to premature signs of aging,” Pedroza explains. Even more, the AOX Serum offers a 12-hour time release antioxidant for around-the-clock skin protection.

We stop creating elastin in our early adulthood, “so what you’ve got is what you’ve got for the rest of your life,” Leah Garcia, founder of NULASTIN, explains. Luckily, the revolutionary brand is powered by Elastaplex, “a biodesigned precursor to human elastin,” that allows the replenishment of that elastin little by little. Because the elastin root system anchors your hair in place, the result when using the brand’s Lash & Brow Serum and Scalp Treatment is thicker, healthier hair, and as Garcia notes, “less shedding.” What could be better?

Ashley Lodha, senior business development manager for Senté, tells us that the Dermal Repair Cream is the brand’s flagship product. “It carries our patented molecule, our Heparan Sulfate Analog, which makes it a multitasking hydrator,” she says. Among the long list of skin benefits the formula offers: increased hydration, lessened fine lines and wrinkles, evening out tone and texture and more.
Also on the product’s hit list: barrier repair. “Our patented molecule mimics the skin’s immune response to inflammation, which can show up as redness, uneven tone, texture, and pigmentation.”

Madilyn Caruso, GRANDE Cosmetics’ PR and influencer manager, says the brand just celebrated its 15th birthday. “We are America’s number-one lash and brow serum brand and we are now sold internationally,” she says. “Just this year, our brow launches have won nine awards, including NewBeauty’s Readers’ Choice for our GrandeBROW Serum.” Also recently launched: The GrandeBROW 2 in 1, a tinted brow gel plus brow-enhancing serum. “It has microfibers that are going to latch onto your brow hairs and instantly volumize them, but it also has our brow enhancing serum in it too.”

Mickey Williams may be a makeup artist by trade, but like every makeup expert knows, skin care is the first step of any solid beauty look. But there was an issue she encountered early on in her career: “There was never an eye cream that would work on bags and darkness, but still hydrate, so I was always layering different products,” she tells us. Until one day down the road, she was introduced to Theraderm’s Peptide Repair Eye Cream. “I can’t get any of my clients off of it. They are addicted. Most of my clients are men now, and men are notorious for being divas. They just love it.”
Created by a plastic surgeon, Theraderm’s clinical formulas work to heal and transform the skin at home. Another fan favorite: the papaya powered NuPeel, which reveals smoother, more radiant skin in minutes.

Saints & Sinners
Diana Wilson, cofounder and chief creative officer of Saints & Sinners, knows the word “hybrid” is overused. But she swears that’s exactly what her brand’s Illuminati Hair Serum is. “It was a labor of love,” she tells me as she explains the steps and formulation it took to perfect this serum. “We’ve taken a treatment oil and fused it with a smoothing serum. We have agave, prickly pear seed oil, jojoba, coconut and olive seed oils in there and it allows all hair types, colors and textures to shine.”

Thrive Causemetics may have revolutionized the way we use mascara with their best-selling tubing formula, but their Impact-FULL Smoothing Lipstick is about to change everything you know about lipstick too. Each of the 12 shades is infused with the brand’s Line-Refine Hydrating Complex, “a proprietary combination of powerful ingredients like peptides and sodium hyaluronate that deeply hydrate and plump the skin and smooth the appearance of fine lines for visibly fuller, plumper, more youthful-looking lips.” Each bullet is also formulated with ingredients like raspberry seed oil, pomegranate flower extract, sunflower, jojoba, meadowfoam and castor seed oils.

Cofounder Tim Quinn is a celebrity makeup artist by trade, but recently launched his self-care meets skin-care brand HALO 42. The new Copaiba Collection, infused with the supercharged copaiba resin from Brazil, includes a balancing and calming Body Wash, Body Elixir, Soothing Face Cleanser, and our personal favorite, an Anti-Aging Eye Oil which, in true Quinn fashion, wears beautifully under makeup.
