Favorite Beauty Products Forever Seen TODAY
Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion
Eggenberger says this moisturizer is a skincare icon — apparently a bottle is sold every five seconds. The lotion is packed with hyaluronic acid and provides up to eight hours of hydration to give your skin a youthful glow, the brand says.
This single-blade razor is a “tried and trusted” favorite for men’s shaving, says Eggenberger. Available in a pack of 12, the brand says each razor blade is designed for a soothing, comfortable shave and won’t cause bumps or nicks.
“If this product was compared to sports, it would be Michael Jordan of the ’90s Chicago Bulls,” says Eggenberger.
Launched in 1939, Eggenberger notes that this brand has been extremely well received. Whether you’re hiking in the great outdoors or just enjoying your day, the brand claims this high-strength formula will provide odor-free protection for up to 24 hours.
Dandruff happens to many of us, and this shampoo is the go-to choice for many people when their scalp starts to itch and flake. According to the company, this formula provides up to 72 hours of scalp protection and is designed to reduce redness, dryness and itching.
Maybelline Great Lash Mascara
This cult mascara has been around since 1971, and Eggenberger says she loves the formula that doubles lashes and the spiral spoolie because it glides on lashes easily. According to the brand, this formula is hypoallergenic, making it perfect for contact wearers.
“If her name doesn’t make you blush, a swirl of this peachy pink powder on your cheeks definitely will,” says Eggenberger. Another beauty favourite, this award-winning blush is meant to be silky smooth and deliver a natural, buildable shade. Moreover, the brand claims that it is suitable for all skin tones.
More fall beauty products, according to Bahar Takhtehchian
Lifestyle Specialist Bahar Takhtechian previously stopped by at the 3rd hour of TODAY to share her favorite fall beauty essentials for women and men. From hair cream to smooth and repair your locks to moisturizing anti-puffiness eye stick, your skin and hair will thank you through the seasons.
Takhtehchian said less is more when it comes to fall face makeup. She loves this light complexion stick, which is a mix between foundation and concealer. You can use it to brighten your eyes, shape your face, or hide blemishes, she says.
Getting back into a routine can be tiring. The brand claims that this rolling stick will depuff your eyes and make you “feel like you’ve had eight hours of sleep.” Infused with aloe and caffeine, the brand also mentions that it’s easy to use by gently rolling under your eyes throughout the day.
Takhtehchian said it’s important to keep your skin soft and smooth during the colder months, which is why she loves this body wash that contains fruit-derived alpha hydroxy acids and salicylic acid to gently exfoliate the skin. She said it also helps clear skin congestion, ingrown hairs and bumps.
This 3-in-1 oil will keep her feeling smooth all through fall and beyond. According to the brand, this lightweight formula is made with castor seed oil and argan oil. Use it to deeply condition facial hair, hair and skin. The brand says you can even apply it over tattoos to make them more vibrant.
For a professional-looking blowout, Takhtehchin loves this hair cream that’s supposed to smooth hair, provide heat protection, and even repair your strands. Depending on the brand, it can be used on all hair textures and is best used on damp hair.
According to the brand, this beard straightening brush will transform even the “most unruly mass of facial hair” into a polished beard. Featuring three heat settings, this ionic tool can heat up to 400 degrees and will leave your beard frizz-free.
More Fall Beauty Products
Exfoliation is essential to remove dead skin cells. Exfoliating twice a week can help your skin absorb other products like moisturizers and serums, Eggenberger said. This scrub is also formulated with vegan ingredients such as bamboo extract and jojoba oil beads which are said to cleanse and polish the skin.
Doll 10 Perfect Pout Ultra Restorative Night Therapy
Chapped lips are coming, so it will be helpful to keep them hydrated before the cold fronts hit. Eggenberger shared that since our lips don’t produce their own moisture, you’ll first see signs of aging on your pout. Think of this formula as ‘therapy’ for your lips: it exfoliates, conditions and nourishes them, so you can enjoy their supple, healthy feeling.
This rich lotion is packed with herbal extracts like chamomile and rosemary that help hydrate skin, the brand says. It’s a protective cream that a TODAY editor never leaves home without, and the ingredients are also dermatologist-approved.
GrandeFANATIC Ventilating and Curling Mascara
This mascara promises to deliver results you can see long after you take it off at the end of the day. It’s infused with a biotin peptide to help lashes stay put and look healthier and stronger over time, the brand says.
Cote Toxin Free Nail Polish
Once you’ve locked in your fall nail inspiration, it’s time to choose a bold color that will make a statement this season. Eggenberge noted that Cote polishes come in a variety of colors you can pull off this fall, and they’re also said to be free of major toxins, chip-resistant, and provide long-lasting shine.
If summer has taken a toll on your hair, a nourishing mask like this can help bring it back to life. According to the brand, it deeply conditions strands to reverse damage from heat styling, chemicals and more, leaving you with shinier, stronger hair.
