Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair, $110.

"ANR may be pricey, but it's definitely worth it." - Talia.

"I've seen really fantastic reviews for this *everywhere*, so I was beyond excited to try it. I've been slathering it on my face for a couple of months now (I use it morning and night), and I can honestly say I've noticed a really positive difference in my skin. It's brighter. More hydrated. Healthier. Fewer breakouts. Definitely worth it, in my opinion.." - Erin

Weleda Skin Food, $15.95.

"This helps with my dry cuticles so, so, so much! My partner uses it on his face in the winter, too. I find it a bit too thick for that, but at least its multi-use! " - Leah.
