Drugstore Makeup Fan Favorite: Maybelline Instant Age Rewind


What it is: This concealer deposits a concentrated dose of spot-fading vitamin C that targets acne scars, sun spots and other imperfections while it camouflages.

Why we love it: “I would use this concealer for the finish alone—the fuzzy applicator stipples it on for a soft-focus look. But the fact that it actually fades the spots it covers? Genius.” —Katherine Kluznik Rentmeester, beauty and style channel editor, iVillage

To buy: Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Spot Concealer + Treatment, $9.99 at

What it is: Pink salt harvested in the Himalayas contains more than 84 minerals and elements, and it’s the secret ingredient in Dial’s incredibly nourishing, but clean-rinsing, new body wash. The innovative formula smells great, too, thanks to a delicate water lily scent.

Why we love it: “This is the most skin-softening, transformative body wash experience I've had in a really long time. For those who aren't into heavy perfumes but who have dry skin, it delivers a clean shower experience with long-lasting hydration.” —Kristin Booker, blogger, Fashion. Style. Beauty.

KIND Nuts & Spices Cashew Ginger Spice Bar


What they are: Energy bars with a sweet-and-spicy blend of ingredients that you can actually pronounce, including roasted cashews, crunchy almonds and ginger, all in one satisfying and nutritious snack. 

Why we love them:
"This is my go-to bar for days on the run and nonstop moments in the office. Honey gives it the perfect amount of sweetness with only 5 grams of sugar and nothing artificial. Just one of these bars satisfies both my sweet tooth and rumbling tummy without sacrificing taste. I’ve been enjoying Kind bars for years, long before I started working with them."  Michelle Dudash, R.D., nutritionist, blogger and author of Clean Eating for Busy Families

Cooking Tools Fan Favorite: Lodge Cast Iron Combo Cooker

 Kitchen Equipment


What it is: This amazingly affordable set combines two pieces of rugged, pre-seasoned cast iron cookware: a roomy dutch oven and a skillet/griddle that doubles as its lid.

Why we love it:
"No other cookware works as hard, cooks as evenly or lasts as long (literally, a lifetime) as cast iron, but pieces can be expensive—and clunky. This ingenious two-piece set from Lodge solves both problems. It costs just $35, and it doesn't take up much space, since the smaller skillet does double-duty as a lid!" —Dina El Nabli, health and lifestyle director, iVillage

To buy: Lodge Pre-Seasoned Cast Iron Combo Cooker, $34.99 at

Why we love it:
"My kitchen cabinets are small and crowded; there’s always an open box of spaghetti spilling noodles or random packets of snacks getting lost in the back of the cupboard. These BPA-free plastic canisters help keep dried goods like lentils, chips and cereal fresh and organized." —Erika Janes, senior editor, iVillage 

To buy:
