If We Were Trapped On A Desert Island And Could Only Choose One Beauty Product, This Is What We'd Pick

Hi there, Refinery29 reader! I'm Karina, your trusty new Beauty and Wellness Market Writer. As you may have guessed, I have a serious love affair with all things makeup, skin, and haircare, and am as such, really excited to bring you all the best sales and editor-favorite products to shop. I'm also a Virgo, love sushi, and the color green.
As part of my job, it's both an occupational perk and a daily task to test out all the new beauty products that launch on store shelves, both literal and virtual. Only a select few make it in our monthly must-haves, but what about the forever fave? Be it the oil cleanser that removes every last trace of makeup from your face, the luxe serum that makes foundation optional, or the body lotion that makes skin super soft, we've all got one: Our Friends 'lobster' beauty product, which is a reference you'll understand if you love classic sitcoms as much as I do.
To get to know my new team at R29, I asked every Beauty and Shopping editor what their one stranded-on-a-desert-island product was — kicking it off with my tried-and-true favorite first. We've tried it all, so you can rest assured that these picks are truly the best of the best. Click through to shop Refinery29's editor-approved essentials spanning makeup, hair, skin care, and more.
At Refinery29, we’re here to help you navigate this overwhelming world of stuff. All of our market picks are independently selected and curated by the editorial team. If you buy something we link to on our site, Refinery29 may earn commission.
