1. Seventh Generation Chamomile Sensitive Care Lotion
"I'm a big fan of Seventh Generation's eco-friendly line of cleaning supplies, so I was stoked to hear the brand was launching its own personal-care line. This lovely lotion smells of lavender and has a 95% plant-based formula, so you can feel good about slathering it on your skin from top to toe."
$7.99, available at Soap.com
2. Chanel Les Twin-Sets de Chanel
"It used to be that matching your nail color to your lipstick was considered a bit boring and stuffy, but thanks to an infusion of new, hip shades, this retro trend is seeing a serious revival. I love Chanel's Twin-Sets, specifically the pretty pink Infidèle — it's pink without being too precious. I think it's a little silly that they're sold separately instead of as a set, but the colors are so lovely, I'm willing to overlook it. Just be sure to jump on it fast — these are limited-edition launches and one shade combo has already sold out."
Lipstick, $26 and Vernis, $32.50; available at Chanel.
3. Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer Crème Compact
"I love Laura Mercier's famed Tinted Moisturizer, so when I heard she was launching a compact version of it, I absolutely flipped. It's gives you the same dewy, flawless, lightweight finish we all know and love, but now in a handy-dandy compact that's easy to throw in your bag and even easier to apply."
$45, available at Nordstrom.
4. Lather Vitamin C Peptide Renewal
"After a summer spent in the sun — okay, more like sitting beneath the a shade, with a hat on, while covered in SPF 95, but still — my skin is looking a little lackluster. The copy on the box for this product promised to pep up tired skin, so I gave it a shot and it did just that. Bursting with vitamin C, which is delivered to the skin in bursts throughout the day, thanks to a nifty, high-tech delivery system, my skin looked brighter and smoother almost instantaneously."
$58, available at Lather.
5. Sephora Collection Urban Luxe All Over Powder
"A good bronzer is essential to maintaining your glow, especially as the days are getting shorter and we lose that extra time in the sun. I love this shimmering, multi-tonal one from Sephora, partly because it gives me that bronze flush I love, and partly because the animal print on the powder is just so cool looking."
$14, available at Sephora.
6. Coolway Flatiron System
"In the summer, I don't use heat-styling tools — I just twist my hair and let it air-dry into waves. But, once the temperature and humidity drop, I suddenly become obsessed with flat-ironed hair. I love the glossy, sleek look, especially when paired with a wide-brimmed felt hat — so '70s chic. Sadly, most irons fry my thin strands, which is why I was psyched for this new iron from Coolway. While most of these tools need to be at 300 degrees or above to straighten, Coolway uses new technology that uses water to transfer heat, measuring the level of moisture in the hair and adjusting the heat setting, meaning it can straighter using heat below 299 degrees, so your strands don't sizzle. It's a little involved, because you have to use the spray that comes with it in order for the iron to actually work, but if it means silky smooth, straight hair, I'm okay with a little extra effort."
$149.95, available at Coolway.
