I’m not a huge fan of applying body cream or oil, but it’s a must when the weather gets cooler and drier. After I shower, I’d slather on a generous amount of Fenty Skin’s body cream, massaging the product into my skin to wind down after a long day. Packed with essential oils, the whipped, creamy formula gives my body a healthy and moisturized glow. – YeEun Kim, Editor
Characterized by its compact and chubby packaging, the Merit Flush Balm — a creamy cheek tint — begs to be worn as a blush or used for soft contouring. The shade “Beverly Hills” gives the cheeks a light wash of peachy pink, while the warm “Terracotta” adds a subtle bronze to my medium skin tone with a beautiful, natural finish. – Teresa Lam, Features Editor
Having to still wear face masks, I haven’t had the need to wear any of my bold lipsticks, and have turned to tinted lip balms and lip glosses as an alternative. Rare Beauty’s Stay Vulnerable Glossy Lip Balm has the perfect, moisturizing formula, thanks to its botanical blend of lotus, gardenia and white water lily. I use the shade ”Nearly Neutral,” a soft neutral pink ideal for everyday wear. – Pauline De Leon, Associate Editor
