What’s the Cut Shop team buying?

As obsessive testers, we’ve rounded up all our favorites so you don’t get overwhelmed. From an everything tinted sunscreen to a glossy but nonsticky highlighter balm and even a “your skin but better” concealer, here’s a definitive guide to the best of the clean beauty store’s products.

The Cut team has raved about this all-in-one sunscreen-tint-serum since it launched earlier this year. The tint brightens skin over time while protecting it from UV rays, leaving you with a dewy, glowing finish.

Another unanimous favorite from the Cut Shop team is this Kosas concealer. This creamy concealer melts into the skin for a natural dewy finish and buildable coverage, and it includes hydrating ingredients to brighten dull, dry skin. But don’t take my word for it — the best testimony for how good this concealer is is the rave reviews it’s gotten from everyone I’ve recommended it to.

We love this lip jelly that has all the shine of a gloss without the sticky feel. The semi-sheer gloss comes in seven shades, perfect for pairing with Tower28’s multiuse liner.

Senior shopping editor Bianca Nieves recommends this blush. It’s so good you can sleep in it. Seriously, that was the whole premise behind the blush created by Youthforia founder Fiona Co Chan. As with those color-changing lipsticks, we love how this nourishing blush oil adjusts to your body’s pH for a uniquely flattering blush shade.

Another fave from Nieves, this miracle balm lives up to its name. The multiuse balm adds the perfect amount of dewy tint under or over your foundation for a moisturizing glow or fresh-faced flush, depending on your shade.

If you want a gloss that’s also good for your lips, consider junior writer Asia Milia Ware’s favorites from Kosas. Not only is this set a good deal, but it’s also the perfect combo of shimmers and nudes for wearing alone or layering over lipsticks and liners.

Best Credo Friends & Family skin-care deals

If you’re prone to overdoing your skin-care routine and damaging your skin barrier, this is the solution. This cleanser gently and effectively cleanses without stripping already sensitive skin.

If you like the cleanser, you’ll love the moisturizer. Beauty director at large Maya Allen cites this as one of her favorites. The fragrance- and irritant-free moisturizer helps repair even the most damaged skin barrier.

Another fave from Allen to add to your cart ASAP is this brow gel that nourishes your brows and keeps them in place. Get the full, laminated look with biodegradable plant-based fibers and hydrating ingredients including hyaluronic acid.

Behold another gentle cleansing option. Klur’s gel cleanser washes away dirt while leaving your skin feeling super soft and moisturized. While this is ideal for all skin types, including my combination skin, we’ve found it works really well for sensitive skin.

This is one of my favorite eye creams because it actually works. With a natural yellow tint, this hydrating cream blurs and brightens dark circles, while the hydrating formula cools to help depuff the undereye area.

The hype behind this body oil is well deserved. Osea’s best-selling product is good for all skin types and helps firm, soften, and nourish skin to keep your skin moisturized.

This quick and gentle peel from Alpyn Beauty is another of Ware’s favorites. In just five minutes, the blend of naturally derived acids and bamboo powder brightens and smoothes skin for glowing results.

Another Cut fave. We love it so much we’ve dedicated a whole post to this skin savior. The soothing spray is an all-in-one fix for a number of skin-care concerns from sunburns to eczema flare-ups and breakouts. The star ingredient hypochlorous acid, which occurs naturally in the body, soothes inflammation, and helps repair skin.

Best Credo Friends & Family hair deals

Prewash treatments can often be a chore, but this one feels more like a treat. With a light vanilla scent and a blend of oils, this hair and scalp mask helps soothe dry, congested scalps for healthier and softer hair for all hair types.

Nieves also counts this best-selling styling gel as a favorite. This high-hold, high-shine gel using pequi oil for nonsticky hold. It’s ideal for all hair types to define your curls or pull back your hair into a slick ponytail.

The easiest way to deal with ingrown hairs and dry skin is this daily use treatment, which you can apply directly to affected skin. The blend of oils, including jojoba and chamomile, helps soothe and soften skin.

If it seems as if your fragrances never last, consider this moisturizing dry-oil perfume. Spritz the blend of apricot-kernel and grape-seed oils on your pressure points and enjoy the long-lasting notes of orange blossom, vanilla woods, and amber.
