New Magnificence Obsessions for Might


New beauty obsessions for May

A magical skin serum, an irresistible lip gloss meets balm and a heavenly moisturizer with roses have a moment in the beauty department this month. On top of that, here’s the rest of what Goop beauty editors Jean, Megan, and Brianna can’t get enough of from this May.

“It’s rare that I fall in love with a line. In this case, I fell in love with the beautiful two-phase face oil, then the essence (it takes off makeup and treats your skin), then the face and eye balm. Is it the result? The exquisite textures? The fragrances (especially the incredible oil)? The fact that it’s made from hand-picked botanicals from a gorgeous Sicilian hill? The chic, minimalist packaging? I’m telling you it’s all and you can’t go wrong with this gorgeous full size set. “

“I’ve already looked through most of my jar of this daffodil-colored turmeric cream because it’s so good. It looks and feels like thick lemon pudding – so moisturizing and rich that it feels like it instantly tightens my skin. And I imagine the golden yellow tones of turmeric counteract the redness in my skin. So it’s one of those amazing moisturizers that really makes your skin look and feel better. One of the first things I did when I got to Goop was learn how to make a turmeric latte. I’ve moved on to turmeric tonics and now I feel like a golden circle is closed. ”

Everything makeup artist Gucci Westman does is cool, but this new balm-pigment-gloss hybrid is just rich and satisfyingly creamy and subtle, sexy shiny. The pigments are the result of Westman’s years of working with people’s skin: whatever shade you choose, I guarantee it will look good on you. There’s something about the colors and the translucent but opaque texture that makes every single hue sing. A narrow window is cut into the sleek black tube so you can see the paint – especially useful when you get all six shades. ”

“I keep this on my bedside table and wipe the creamy, extra strong balm before going to bed and wake up with soft, smooth, never cracked, always happy lips. The balm feels like the smoothest, pillow-richest substance imaginable, and it looks like milk punch. Before that, you needed a strong smelling, oddly colored, industrial strength ointment to get the results this gives. It also lasts forever and of course looks adorable in its little white pot. “

“Give me everything made with turmeric and I’ll be happy. This gorgeous soap is no exception. In a steamy shower it foams up into a heavenly cloud-like foam, smells of summer time – the subtle mixture of bergamot, geranium and ginger reminds me of that soft evening air – and makes my skin plump and moist. The blend of antioxidant turmeric, emollient shea butter, coconut and castor oils, and exfoliating rose tone detoxifies and nourishes at the same time, and is gentle enough to use on my face (it also clears). I love the lack of plastic and the easy washability with a nice soap. ”

“Glowing and casual and subtly perfecting in a way that I don’t often associate with powders, this new shade flatters my skin tone and leaves the most beautiful, relaxed, sun-warmed glow. Made from nutritious cocoa, mango seeds, and cupuaçu butter, it’s matte – but in a subtle way to make you look easy to care for put together. ”

“I apply this flawlessly shrinking gel to my problem areas and sometimes smooth it all over my face before bed when I’ve really broken out. It dissolves invisibly and is therefore ideally layered under skin care or makeup during the day. The blend of willow bark (a natural source of salicylic acid), green tea extract, and ginger water exfoliates and helps control oil. I am constantly dealing with blemishes – some weeks are more taxing than others – so I live for this simple gel. “

“Absolute magic: I pour half a pipette out to tighten, fill and soothe my skin in the morning and in the evening. It is designed to strengthen the skin against premature lines and physical signs of aging. It consists of chebula – an Ayurvedic fruit known for its antioxidant properties – and a radiation-promoting blend of elder, ginger and echinacea. I massage it onto damp skin that has just been washed and then layer face oil over it. The silky consistency feels so good and luxurious, the healthy looking shine it leaves is incredible, and the results over time are even more amazing. I also love the slightly herbal, refreshing scent. “

“This thick, velvety balm is the ultimate cream when your skin needs full moisture. It’s so rich, but it melts right into my skin and leaves that great, calming feeling (it also smells faintly like the roses it was made with). I also like to use it as a night cream – I wake up with absolutely silky-soft, moist skin. ”

“I treat my skin every other week with this super nourishing sheet mask. It’s especially good when my skin feels particularly dry. It’s made from prebiotics, marine collagen, seaweed, edelweiss extract, and hyaluronic acid – more nutrients than most salon facials. So when you take the mask off, your skin stays smooth and moisturized. If I do it on a lazy Sunday afternoon while taking a warm, relaxing bath, it feels like a day at the spa. ”

“The makeup brushes end all makeup brushes! These are the same ones makeup artist Gucci Westman wears on her backstage set to fashion shows, red carpets, and photo shoots. You get every brush you could ever need: two for eyeshadow, a baby mixer, a blender, a lip, a foundation and a powder. I especially love her blender brush because it’s perfectly angled for smoothing highlighters and bronzers to keep my cheekbones looking shaped and defined. Each model is handcrafted by Japan’s oldest brush manufacturer from cruelty-free nylon fibers and hardwood – sustainable birch – for the slim, black-lacquered handles. What I love most is the way they blend: you get a much more flattering, natural look even by using the same makeup that you always have. They are so plush and the bristles feel absolutely amazing on the skin. ”

“I have very sensitive skin that tends to redden. For as long as I can remember, dermatologists have been recommending using the same (very simple, not clean) drug store detergent. Now Tata Harper has come up with a new line – a cleanser, moisturizer and mask – especially for reactive skin like mine. It’s not just about leaving out ingredients that can irritate sensitive skin (for example, there are no essential oils, soy, nut derivatives, gluten, or hot scrubs). It’s also about sourcing powerful botanicals that benefit sensitive skin, like passion fruit seed oil to fight free radicals, jojoba ester to moisturize, and antioxidant marigold flowers to soothe. I love all three products, but the milky microfoam cleaner is my favorite: it’s so gentle and yet removes all traces of make-up – even the most stubborn mascara – and makes my skin silky soft and completely refreshed. And the light green glass bottle looks stunning on my bathroom counter. “
