Lush Naked Shower Gel

The beauty industry isn't particularly well known for being extremely sustainable, but Lush Cosmetics is one brand that continues to push the limits of what's possible. Late last year, the brand released package-free shower gels (yes, really) dubbed Naked Shower Gels. They also have lotions and body conditions in naked form, though the gels seem most innovative. They're shaped like little bottles, have the texture of a jelly-like soap and actually really work like a shower gel. Contrary to the thought that this might act just like soap, simply run one under water, and the liquid gel will run. The brand also recently released package-free bath oils, each targeted to make you feel something different (relaxed or engergized, for example).

Drunk Elephant Protini™ Polypeptide Cream

Drunk Elephant has been hailed as the holy grail of skincare for good reason — the products deliver real results, instantly. The Protini™ Polypeptide Cream is no exception. The strengh of this potent cream comes courtesy of the 9 signal peptide complex (growth factors) that bind moisture to the skin. Pygmy waterlily stem cell extract, soybean folic acid ferment extract, red algae extract and, acetyl glutamine come together to act as a shot of protein. Use it alone or mix with your favorite serum for soothing results.


Too Faced Glow Job

If not for the Instagrammable name and aesthetic, pick up a jar of Too Faced's Glow Job Radiance Boosting Glitter Mask for its smoothing and illuminating properties. Unlike most peel-off masks, this one doesn't sting and makes you glow-y rather than red.

Maison Francis Kurkdjian Scented Hand Cream

The iconic nose Francis Kurkdjian (famous for perfumed theater performances, scented installations and bubbles too) has finally added hand cream to his collection of products. Think of it as both a way to refresh your favorite scent throughout the day, and a way to get in on the brand without spending an exorbitant amount. 

Kat Von D Basket Case Anti-Precision Eyeliner

Kat Von D's Basket Case Anti-Precision Eyeliner made waves when it was released — not only because it was a collaboration with Green Day, but because it's truly different than what's out there. Use this liner as the perfect device to create the ideal smudged, lived in liner that literally lasts all day and night.

Milk Makeup Luminous Blur Stick

Milk Makeup's new Luminous Blur Stick is genius in that it's a solid primer that illiminates skin while still having that matte quality that keeps you from feeling greasy. Think of it as a two-in-one. A few swipes on your face visibly makes pores smaller and adds a seamless base, whether you want to wear foundation or go au naturel. Available 1/18 at Sephora.
