Our Team’s Top Picks for August 2020 (Beauty Within Faves)

At Beauty Within, we’re constantly trying and reviewing new products for you all to enjoy. Some don’t work so well on our skin while others we absolutely can’t get enough of — the holy grails! So we thought we’d end this month by sharing our personal favorites and the products we use on the daily. We asked each of our lovely editors/team members to show us what they’re loving so far (we have some fancy ones in here). Without further ado, here are our top beauty picks for August 2020!

Fresh Rose Deep Hydration Toner

$45 from fresh

“My skin usually gets really dry, especially around wintertime. I used to use other toners to help with the dryness. But because I wasn’t knowledgeable in skincare, they didn’t really help my skin. When I use the Fresh Rose toner, my skin isn’t dry anymore. It feels really hydrated and soft all day long! Actually it’s the toner I’ve been using for two years as my holy grail, and I’ll continue to use it. Plus, I love the rose scent!” — Tray, Graphic Designer and Lee Hong Gi Enthusiast

Bliss Clear Genius Clarifying Toner + Serum

$18 from Bliss

“It has all of Fel’s fave ingredients (cica, niacinamide, willowbark, salicylic acid). The best part is that this toner/serum doesn’t leave a residue. Because I also have oily skin, I prefer products that don’t leave an oily residue behind. This is also great since it acts as your toner, essence, and serum step. I usually use it when my skin is a little damp after cleansing. Afterwards, I just need to use a moisturizer. Best of all, it’s affordable and easy to get! I also recommended this product to Felicia, and she agrees it’s great!” — Jane, Video Editor aka Never-replies-to-her-texts

Burt’s Bees Sensitive Facial Cleanser

$9.99 from Burt’s Bees

“For someone with extremely sensitive skin, it’s really difficult for me to find anything that works for my skin. When I introduced this cleanser into my routine, it changed everything! I especially love the creamy texture and how it feels when I massage it onto my face. Plus, one tiny squeeze is all you need for it to work its ~magic~. I usually use this as part of my double cleanse with the Garnier Micellar Water. It’s been at least a year, and I haven’t used any other cleanser since! Definitely recommend for all my sensitive skin peeps! — Isabel, Beauty Editor aka baby of the group

Curology Rich Moisturizer

prices may vary from Curology

“My routine is minimalistic, so this moisturizer is what I’ve been enjoying lately. It doesn’t feel clogging to the pores, but it’s hydrating. I use this for my night routine, along with the Curology cleanser and treatment. In the mornings, I rinse with water, apply The Ordinary Buffet Serum, and the Mizon All-In-One Snail Cream.” — Amber, (More than a) Video Editor

Briogeo Scalp Revival Charcoal + Biotin Dry Shampoo

$24 from Sephora

“This is the best dry shampoo ever! I’ve used many dry shampoos in the past, but this one is by far the best for my oily scalp! When I use other dry shampoos, the volumizing effect lasts for one or two hours and my scalp gets all oily again. But for this dry shampoo, it gives hair volume that lasts all day through the next morning. The scalp doesn’t itch and leaves the hair feeling refreshed! And despite the small bottle size, a little goes a long way! Plus, it smells great!” — Claire, Video Editor and DIY Queen

Laneige Cream Skin Refiner

$33 on Beauty Within

“I just like the feeling of my skin after I use it and the fact that this product is 2-in-1. I tend to use it during my night routine and follow up with the Glow Recipe Banana Souffle Moisturizer. By the morning, my skin is hydrated, moist, and very happy when I wake up.” — Lucy, Motion Graphics Animator and Kitty-Lover

Primera Alpine Berry Water Oil-Free Gel Cream

$40 from Sephora

“Given that the weather in NYC was super humid this year, I reached for water creams and gel moisturizers to keep my oily skin in control. I came across the Primera moisturizer after watching Liah Yoo’s recommendation and decided to give the oil-free version a try. Let me tell you, it was one of the best purchases I’ve ever made. The gel cream looks like transparent jelly that dissolves into water and sinks into my skin without feeling greasy.” — Deb, Beauty Editor + Video Editor and foodie
