I know, I know: this price tag is a pretty penny. However, I’ve waxed poetic about how much this mask is worth it, and I’ll say it again. Sleeping masks are tricky.

iS Clinical dermstore.com
Celebrity esthetician Shani Darden examined my acne-prone skin and suggested I start using IS Clinical’s active serum asap. One does as Darden says (and the rest of the world, who swears by this product), and in just under two weeks I noticed a prominent difference in my pesky dark spots and less and less surprise breakouts.

This No-Fuss Moisturizer
Dr Roebuck’s sephora.com
Bells-and-whistles skincare is cool and all, but sometimes you don’t need a moisturizer that does your taxes and calls your grandma.

It moisturizes with hyaluronic acid, rosehip, and macadamia oil, and it absorbs almost immediately, so you never feel sticky.
This Easy Peasy Self-Tanner
Isle of Paradise sephora.com
It is a truth universally acknowledged that all sunless-tanning products are messy, smelly, and patchy. Except for these drops. Not only are they fresh-smelling and easy to apply (just mix a few drops in with a palmful of lotion), but their tinted hues double as color-correctors, canceling out unwanted undertones for a natural-looking glow. Pick pink for fair skin, green for medium skin, and violet for dark skin.
This Beauty Sleep Miracle Worker
Allies of Skin dermstore.com

And this little number from Drunk Elephant contains a gentle, yet effective, 15-percent concentration of the good stuff.
This Repairing Moisturizer
Squalane (not to be confused with squalene, a skincare ingredient derived from sharks that can cause you to break out) is an insanely moisturizing molecule that exists in your own body, but in small quantities. Biossance found a way to derive it from sugarcane, making it pore-friendly, incredibly soothing, and—when mixed with a bunch of probiotics, like in this lightweight gel moisturizer—a total skin-repairing powerhouse.
This Firming Night Cream
No matter how much abuse your skin has endured in your lifetime (we know you slept in your makeup last week, and we’re still not okay with it), it’ll feel pretty much new again after you slather on this cream for a few nights.

This Redness-Reducing Moisturizer
Dr. Jart+ sephora.com
