Welcome to Sh*t We Stole from the Beauty Closet, a new video series where Cosmo’s beauty team hangs out in their ~huge~ beauty closet, spilling all of the tea on the best products of the season. Episode three is allllll about skincare, and the team breaks down seven products they can’t get enough of. Keep in mind they get sent literal tons of samples each day to test and try (tough life, right?), so when the beauty team says something is good—it’s really good.
Sit back and watch beauty director Carly Cardellino and senior beauty editors Lauren Balsamo and Chloe Metzger give you all the tips you need to get your skin together before winter hits (’cause cold air is, like, not fun on your skin). Whether you’re looking to invest in a zit-zapping cream or you’re in the market for dewy skin, you’ll love all seven products the team scooped up this week.
This installment of Sh*t We Stole is also packed with every skincare definition you’ve always been too scared to ask—think: zinc, SPF, retinol, and treatment cleansers. Which, um, hi, I never knew until now if I should actually be using a retinol or not. Spoiler: According to the beauty team, I most definitely should.
So, pull out your pen and notebook and start watching ASAP. You’ll discover the best goodies for straight-up good-looking skin and learn what our editors call the retinol 1-2-3 rule. And, hey—don’t forget to tune in next time for episode four of Sh*t We Stole.
