Benzac Intensive Spot Treatment
"The gel sinks in fast and goes deep to kill bacteria without overly drying," says dermatologistJessica Wu, MD.
Brightening Hydrogel Mask
Vitamins and peptides deliver instant radiance. "Itâ€™s like a quickie for skin!" jokes Ilana Blitzer, Health's beauty director.
SPF for face
Skinceuticals Physical Matte UV Defense SPF 50
A physical block with a barely-there feel? "I'm impressed," Dr. Wu says. "It left my skin velvety." The mattifying tint doubles as foundation.
One side has silicone bristles to amp up your cleanse; the other has a massage pad. "The pulses mimic office devices I use to tighten skin," says dermatologist Francesca Fusco, MD.
Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta MediSpa Peel
An impressive 15 acids improve texture and tone. Raves Dr. Fusco, "You'd think it was made from the Fountain of Youth."
Burtâ€™s Bees Renewal Firming Day Lotion with SPF
The featherweight formula gives serious hydration plus potent anti-agers, Dr. Wu says.
Garnier Ultra-Lift Miracle Sleeping Cream
Found: a nongreasy rejuvenator. "When I awoke," reports beauty blogger Alexis Wolfer, "it looked like I had spent a week relaxing at a spa."
Vichy Liftactiv Supreme
It firms right away (adenosine pulls skin taut), our testers say, and over time (rhamnose stimulates collagen).
Simple Skincare Micellar Cleansing Water
This dissolves dirt and makeup and is incredibly soothing. "Bonus: no rinsing!" Blitzer says.
SK-II Power Brightening Specialist
The lightener's licorice and oat improve dark spots in weeks. "And it repairs damage that can lead to new spots," Dr. Fusco says. Win-win.
SkinMedica GlyPro Antioxidant Serum
This serum speeds up cell turnover. "One drop a day helps reduce signs of aging," Dr. Fusco notes.
Clarins Total Eye Concentrate
A one-two punch that softens lines and depuffs, Dr. Wu says.
Prevage Neck and DÃ©colletÃ© Firm & Repair Cream
"Like a good push-up bra," Blitzer points out, "this concentrate will give skin a little lift."
Wolfer is a fan: â€œMy skin felt so clean and got brighter in weeks.â€
