Along with cold weather and darker days, comes dry skin, tired complexions, and busier, party-filled schedules. To help add a little cheer to what's often seen as a stressful time of year, ahead you'll find the best new-for-December haircare, makeup, and skincare products from Clinique, Maybelline, and more that will improve your beauty routine and, best of all, your mood.
Sol de Janeiro Coco Cabana Cream ($20-$45): Designed to lock in hydration for up to 72 hours, this coconut oil and fermented sugar blend, which comes in two sizes, quenches skin's thirst and smoothes the surface.
Clinique iD ($39 each): The new customizable line features 15 options to combine moisturizers and active concentrates in precisely-rationed packaging to help take the guesswork (not to mention endless steps) out of your routine. First, choose one of three Dramatically Different Moisturizers (Hydrating Jelly, Moisturizing Lotion +, or Oil-Control Gel) to serve as your base. Then choose your Active Cartridge Concentrate (Irritation, Pores and Uneven Texture, Uneven Skin Tone, Fatigue, or Lines and Wrinkles) based on your primary skin concern. Insert your Active Cartridge Concentrate into the moisturizer, and it will evenly dispense with every pump.
Native Candy Cane Deodorant ($12): Paraben- and aluminum-free, this clean deodorant leaves pits smelling sweet as candy (cane) with a special limited-edition scent just in time for the holidays.
John Frieda Day 2 Revival Collection ($10 each): Designed specifically to breathe life back into second-day hair, this line of dry shampoo, dry hair oil, curl reset spray, and texturizing spray are a must-have for lazy girls and busy babes alike.
Herbivore Botanicals Emerald Deep Moisture Glow Oil ($48): Formulated with cannabis sativa hemp, meadow foam seed, and borage seed oils, this omega- and linolenic acid-rich face oil packs a powerful hydration punch to deeply restore skin and promote a healthy-looking glow.
La Roche-Posay My Skin Track UV Sensor ($60): The battery-free wearable device monitors the amount of UV exposure you receive day in and day out. It also monitors pollution, pollen, and humidity information based on your location and pairs with an app for personalized tips.
House of Aenea Skincare ($70-$265): Cater to your complexion with the market's newest clean, ethically-produced, anti-aging skincare collection. Exclusive to Bergdorf Goodman, the luxury line features epigenetic cleanser, exfoliator, mask, and serum formulas — meaning they work with the genetic effects of pollution and stress in mind — to help train your DNA, promoting stronger skin cells that are more resilient to free radical damage.
SEEN Skin-Caring Shampoo ($29) and Conditioner ($26): To combat the negative side effects of some haircare products' irritating ingredients, SEEN is formulated by dermatologists to provide a noncomedogenic cleanse that boosts hair style without sacrificing skin health.
MAKE Marble Eraser ($150): This new multifunctional pebble puts a modern spin on classic gua sha stones to help erase signs of stress and aging by massaging it into skin. Made with quartz crystal-infused Naxian marble, the stone transforms traditional skincare routines into moments of healing and meditative intention.
Nécessaire ($20-$85): The brainchild of former Elle/WWD editor and Into the Gloss co-founder Nick Axelrod and long-time Estée Lauder executive Randi Christiansen, the new product line, including body wash, body lotion, and sex gel, believes that body care can be self-care.
Immaculash 360 ($35): Who wants a single mascara wand when you can get two? This dual-tipped applicator is designed to deliver a flawless flutter with one of two methods. When you click the button on the side, it helps wield the wands like chopsticks so that you can coat lashes from every angle. When the button is left untouched, you can use each wand individually to target inner corners and bottom lashes, or focus on separation and volume as a whole.
PRAI Radiant Precious Oil Drops ($44): Every hour is happy hour with this cocktail of avocado, hazelnut seed, dog rose fruit, and kukui nut oils (among others). The rich blend of botanicals replenishes and nourishes skin by strengthening the moisture barrier and keeping free radicals at bay.
Glamsquad Styling Collection ($12-$34): After over 500,000 appointments booked, the beauty service we know and love has launched their very own styling collection. The efficient, effective, reliable products (including a texturizing finishing spray, dry shampoo, and multi-tasking oil) are designed to deliver the highest quality results to help you perfect your mane with or without the squad by your side.
Murad Night Fix Enzyme Treatment ($70): Add this peptide-powered, anti-aging overnight serum to your evening skincare routine to wake up to radiant, healthier-looking skin come morning.
