VICTORIA S SECRET SELF-TANNING TINTED LOTION
Zoë Ruderman, Senior Style Editor: A product like this is worth checking your luggage for. Not only does it give me a natural-looking bronze (no radioactive orange glow for this girl), but it also delivers an instant tint that masks imperfections like cellulite and spider veins. Not that I, uh, have either.

YES TO CARROTS INTENSE REPAIR HAND CREAM
Andrea Lavinthal, Style Director: I’m only slightly exaggerating when I say that I wash my hands 300 times a day. The upside: I’ve stayed flu-free all winter. The downside: My hands are constantly dry and red. This thick hand cream leaves them feeling soft and smooth without any greasiness (which is key when you’re typing on a computer all day). Plus, I can’t get enough of the scent.

Alex Apatoff, Associate Editor: My skin-care philosophy: Anything that looks this pretty and smells this amazing has to be a miracle worker. And this stuff proves my theory true. I’ve found that my skin looks clearest and most radiant when I use it post-shower, even if I ration it like liquid gold. (A medium-size bottle of Visionnaire does cost over $100, after all.)

JURLIQUE SKIN BALANCING FACE OIL
Jennifer Cress, Contributor: I was nervous to put oil on my face since, well, I’ve always been told to keep it away from my pores. But I conquered my fear – and now I’m hooked. This formula absorbs instantly and leaves my skin super-hydrated. I like to apply it first thing in the morning because it creates the perfect silky, smooth canvas for my makeup.

SABON BODY SCRUB
Whitney Little, Associate Producer: I used to think of exfoliating in the winter as a no-no since I assumed it would just make my skin rawer. Then I tried this scrub. The sea salt sloughs away dead skin, but the macadamia oil softens it. And putting on lotion immediately after I use it really locks in the moisture.
