The May 2013 InStyle magazine is dedicated to "165 Best Beauty Buys" and we weren't surprised to see some of our favorite products included in the list, as well as throughout the entire issue.
St. Tropez - St. Tropez Gradual Tan Everyday Body won "Best Beauty Buy" for the Body Self-Tanner category. We love the healthy, streak-free color this nourishing body moisturizer provides. In addition to providing gradual golden color, St. Tropez Gradual Tan Everyday Body is infused with soothing aloe vera to help smooth and hydrate the skin.
Klorane - Winner of "Best Beauty Buy" for Dry Shampoo, Klorane's Gentle Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk continues to receive praise from beauty gurus everywhere. Freshen your 'do' with this easy-to-use spray, ideal for travel or post-gym sprucing. Unlike some dry shampoos, this product doesn't leave a white film on dark locks - making it perfect for everyone! Klorane's Dry Shampoo was also highlighted in the "Freak-Out Fixers!" insert as an emergency essential! Also available in Travel Size.
Ellis Faas - Featured in the "Freeze Frame" segment of "What's Now", Ellis Faas Milky Lips in L201 was used on Gwyneth Paltrow's "Pepper" character in Iron Man 3, hitting theaters this summer. The film's makeup artist, Kate Biscoe, chose this shade for Paltrow because it, " … is a true blood red that doesn't look magenta and goes on liquid." Biscoe describes Pepper's look as "classy but not glitzy." We think L201 is the perfect choice for Pepper's red hair and flawless skin.
butter LONDON - In 'Ask the Editor', buttercup-yellow shade Jasper from butter LONDON was hailed as the perfect complement to purple. Try this pairing on nails and toes to keep your mani-pedi color wheel-correct. butter LONDON's oxblood red La Moss was also used on Emily Blunt's nails for her cover shoot.
Deborah Lippmann - Deborah Lippman's opaque nude shade, Fashion, was chosen as the best nail color to complement olive or caramel skin tones. We love this taupe color on any hand or foot! And it's the perfect pick for spring's nude nail trend.
Eau Thermale Avène - Scoring "Best Beauty Buy" in the Dry Skin Mask category, Avène's Soothing Moisture Mask is a rich, creamy, non-setting mask with intensive moisturizing and soothing care, perfect for dehydrated and overstressed skin. We love that this product is hypoallergenic and minimizes redness.
bliss - Taking home the prize for "Best Beauty Buy" in the Normal Skin Mask category, bliss Triple Oxygen Instant Energizing Mask delivers Vitamin C and oxygen to the skin while detoxifying and brightening the complexion. We think this product is great for all skin types, and love the instant glow we see after using it!
Clarisonic - Included in both the Anti-Aging and Oily skin categories, Clarisonic won "Best Beauty Buy" for Exfoliator with their Clarisonic Aria product for Anti-Aging skin, as well as "Editor's Pick" for their Acne Clarifying Collection for Oily skin. The Clarisonic Aria gently massages away aging dead cells, while the Clarisonic Acne Clarifying Collection combines a specialized brush head with salicylic acid-infused cleanser to gently prod grime out of pores without irritation.
