Redken’s Time Reset Youth Revitalizer was one of our favorite hair products this year because it helped keep our hair young. This new treatment strengthens the hair fiber while repairing weakened areas. It also has Intra-Cylane, a high-tech complex that fills in gaps in the hair shaft and visibly plumps fine strands.

Named after popular breeds of loyal pooches, these long-wearing shadows from Bare Escentuals really know how to heel. We like that along with their stay-put factor, they also feature a lightweight, easy-to-blend texture that makes application a walk in the (dog) park.

We love HerCut Styling Catalysts because they pick up where our stylist left off! Based on the concept that there are five main types of haircuts–the bob, the pixie, the shag, the blunt cut and long layers–the line uses so-called styling catalysts that have polymers and ions to help your hair make the most of its cut by controlling how it moves.

The crafty scientists at Olay have incorporated the anti-aging technology from their facial skin care line Total Effects (a cult favorite among beauty editors) into a super rich body wash. We love the new Olay Total Effects 7-in1 Advanced Anti-Aging Body Wash because it encapsulates the age-fighting ingredients, releasing them over time so they continue to benefit your body long after you’ve stepped out of the shower.
