Eos Shave Cream
This rich cream not only allows for a smooth shave on all skin types, Dr. Fusco says, but also adds a subtle sheen.
Neutrogena Cool Dry Sport Sunscreen Spray
Thick sunscreens can leave your skin feeling slimy. Not this one: It dries in an invisible mesh pattern so pores can breathe easily, Dr. Wu explains.
Gillette Venus Swirl
"The head pivots in all directions and glides right over danger zones, like ankles and knees," Dr. Wu says. "It delivers a really close shave without creating too much pressure.â€
Oral B SmartSeries with Bluetooth 4.0 Connectivity
Sync it with your smartphone to track brushing habits. "I love how it warned me when I brushed too hard,"
Dove Dry Spray
Scoring high in protection against sweat and BO, this mighty mist won't give out on you. "The freshness lasts," Dr. Fusco confirms.
Crest Pro-Health HD
This two-step toothpaste is worth the extra effort: "My teeth felt cleaner and my smile got brighter," Wolfer gushes.
Halle Berry Wild Essence
"This mix of girly florals, sultry musk and heady wood notes is the new sexy," Blitzer says.
Yes to Coconut Milk Bar
"The lather is thick, leaving skin superclean and soft," Dr. Wu says. Also sweet: "My bathroom smelled like coconut cream pie!"
Jergens Natural Glow Instant Sun Sunless Tanning Mousse
The express formula gives you what Blitzer calls a "very convincing vacation tan" in as little as an hour. "It's great for those last-minute 'I'm so pale!' freak-outs."
Lancer The Method: Body Polish
Whatâ€™s so special about this body-smoothing scrub? It's self-warming, and it feels good. "I've never used a scrub that felt so much like a massage," Wolfer says.
Olay Fresh Outlast Body Wash
This mild cleanser stands out in a sea of body washes because it quickly whisks away grime without stripping your skin of its natural oils, Dr. Fusco explains. Gotta love that.
