As a black woman, I’ve always been against self-tanning because it felt like something I didn’t need. However, I have recently tested these drops and my whole perspective has changed. The dark serum evened out my skin tone, reduced the look of my hyperpigmentation and made my skin soft. – AW
This mini microcurrent device tones, contours and lifts the skin, resulting in some truly amazing before and after images with consistent use. Key word: consistent use. I use mine every afternoon. It is a quick and pleasant moment of self-care at home. BN

Finding the perfect mascara for you is complicated, so complicated that I would rather opt for eyelash extensions. However, the new mascara from YSL makes me change my mind about my extensions. The voluminous formula glides easily over the lashes for a long, non-lumpy finish, and when it’s time to peel off in the evening, that’s no problem. – AW
Spring cleaning calls for new spring candles. There is something about my favorite perfumes being bottled in a candle that makes the aroma of my space truly special. Lost Cherry by Tom Ford is a warm scent with a pleasant cherry undertone that lasts all day. If you like the fragrance, then you will love the candle. It’s a splurge, but it’s worth it, and there’s no better time to get it than the sale. – AW
This duo is ideal for flare-ups and breakouts. Faded targets discoloration, hyperpigmentation, and breakouts with kojic acid and niacinamide. Like Butter is a 20-minute mask that soothes and hydrates with oatmeal, coloids and ceramides. —CR
