The amount of products Who What Wear's beauty editors Erin Jahns and Courtney Higgs try on a weekly basis is is quite impressive, and they present product recommendations in ways that are easy to understand and honest. When it comes to beauty products, without first-person recommendations, what do we even have? A list of ingredients, packaging, and marketing verbiage. So like most of us, I really rely on those recommendations when weighing whether or not to make a purchase.
As a fashion editor who dabbles in beauty content, I'm not a beauty expert, but I'm pretty well-informed on what the best and latest products are. But that doesn't mean I get the chance to try all of them (no matter how tempted I am to just add every new arrival on Sephora to my cart on a regular basis). So I take what Erin and Courtney (who pretty much have tried everything) say to heart. Keep scrolling to shop 19 products I was convinced to buy after seeing their recommendations over and over on Who What Wear, and am so glad I did.
After years of spending too much money on expensive hair oils, I took Erin's advice and tried Verb Ghost Oil. I'll never look back because besides being affordable, it smooths my hair and adds shine without the least bit of greasiness.
I'm a bit skeptical about trying new sunscreens, as I've been loyal to the same one for years, but Tatcha's SPF if the best I've ever tried, hands down. It applies so smoothly and never feels greasy in the least. Since it's pricey, I save it for just my face.
When I don't have gels, my nail polish lasts for two days if I'm lucky, so I'm constantly on the hunt for products that'll extend it. After reading Erin's praise of Olive & June's topcoat over and over, I gave it a try. I can confirm that it does the impossible: extends the life of my manicure by a few days.
Matte lipsticks can be a little intimidating, but not this one. It's actually moisturizing and easy to apply in addition to being the perfect shade of rosy nude. No wonder it's a cult favorite.
My skin is pretty sensitive, so I keep peels to a minimum, but when I do want something powerful when my skin is looking dull, it's Erin's favorite that I reach for. My skin can get pretty splotchy, but it does as promised and calms any redness while shrinking pores and banishing dry skin cells.
One of Tatcha's newest products, the liquid version of its legendary Silk Canvas Primer has made me a primer convert. I apply it after sunscreen and before makeup and it makes my skin look flawless.
There are honestly so many Kosas products that could've made it on this list, but I chose this one because it actually makes me want to wear lip gloss again. The natural, subtle glow it gives my lips is far from the goopy gloss I wore in high school.
I use so many Drunk Elephant products, but this is the one that has the most immediate effect on my skin. You would think I just got a facial and slept a full eight hours the night before.
I actually use this as more of a bronzer and highlighter than I do a contour kit, and it works beautifully. I apply it with a light touch to the high points of my face and it gives the prettiest sun-kissed glow.
After my favorite lip balm was discontinued, I went searching for a replacement, and Erin's advice led me to this one. I apply it every night before bed and wake up with the softest lips without all of the stickiness of some lip balms.
Makeup remover isn't something that I like to spend a lot of money on, and thanks to this legendary Bioderma one, I don't have to. It even removes stubborn eye makeup and looks chic in my medicine cabinet.
I've tried so many foundations over the years, it makes my head spin, but this is the one I'm sticking with. The feeling of heavy products on my skin drives me crazy. This one is nice and thin yet provides beautiful coverage when I want something more than what my tinted moisturizer provides.
