You’ll come for the creamy, lavender formula and stay for the major brightening benefits. We’re talking about the Violet-C Radiance Mask, which leaves skin looking absolutely brilliant. Similar to the Violet-C Serum, it also contains Japanese beautyberry, two types of vitamin C, and 10 percent AHAs to gently but effectively resurface skin. Apply a generous layer, treat yourself to a warm cup of tea for 15 to 20 minutes, and rinse off. Dullness, your time is up.
Moisturizers & Creams
Selena Gomez is a fan of the Dewy Skin Cream, so we use the Dewy Skin Cream. Ideal for dry skin, it plumps up skin with long-lasting hydration via a concoction of Japanese purple rice, an Okinawa algae blend, and hyaluronic acid. It also sits beautifully underneath makeup and makes your foundation glide on like a dream.
Dry, overwashed hands are simply no match for the Indigo Soothing Hand Cream. Its gorgeous, sky-blue formula instantly melts into skin, leaving behind soft, moisturized hands. Silk extracts, squalane, and glycerin keep moisture locked in for hours, while indigo and oatmeal mitigate redness and irritation — whether it’s caused by hand-washing or cold weather.
The Water Cream won a 2020 Readers’ Choice Award, which proves that the splurge is absolutely worth it. Not only does it hold a coveted spot on our lists of the best water-based gel moisturizers and best moisturizers for oily skin, our reviewer said the cooling, instantly absorbing formula seriously hydrates without clogging pores and helps control excess oil production.
Comprised of 80 percent squalane and Japanese lemon balm, The Serum Stick is a conveniently packaged treatment for any dry patches that form throughout the day. It also works wonderfully under makeup and smooths out any rough texture so that your foundation doesn’t cake or settle into lines.
You can’t go wrong with any of the five Silk Lipstick shades, but Kyoto Red will be especially on-point for any holiday gatherings on your calendar. Inspired by a geisha’s signature red, it imparts a bold, matte finish that doesn’t suck the moisture out of your lips. That’s because the lipstick is infused with hydrating silk and beautyberry extracts to ensure your pout stays soft all day long. The packaging and bullet itself look like works of art — earning it a well-deserved, front-row spot on your vanity.
