Adir Abergel, Celebrity Hairstylist
On his wishlist: Virtue Healing Oil & Jillian Dempsey Hydrating Eye Masks
"Virtue’s Healing Oil is incredible for any hair type and texture. This oil was created with incredible technology that nourishes and repairs your hair.
Jillian Dempsey’s Hydrating Eye Mask is one of the best that I have ever used. It really helps minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles."
Dr. Caroline Robinson, Dermatologist
On her wishlist: Revision Skincare Revox 7 & SkinBetter Even Tone Correcting Serum
"I love the Revision Skincare Revox 7 serum because it has clinical levels of 7 different peptides to soften the appearance of expression lines on the face. It can be used as spot treatment for fine lines around the eyes, on the forehead, or throughout the face.
The SkinBetter Even Tone Correcting Serum is easily layered under moisturizer and SPF to specifically address the various causes of hyperpigmentation and uneven skin. It contains vitamin C, alpha-arbutin, hexylresorcinol and other tone correctors, and does not include hydroquinone or retinol, making it very tolerable. It has quickly become one of my favorite products."
Katey Denno, Celebrity Makeup Artist
On her wishlist: Kosas 10-Second Liquid Eye Shadow & ILIA Limitless Lash Mascara
"Kosas 10-Second Liquid Eye Shadows are so much fun, so easy to use, and most of them look great on most everyone. I swipe them on with my finger, smudge them out, or pat on a few layers for a more intense color payoff. I also love wearing them as just an eyeliner — smudging them into my lash line, and dragging the tail up into a bit of a bold, playful cat-eye.
I use ILIA Limitless Lash Mascara on myself every day, and it's the one I use on my clients, so I go through them super quickly. It’s at the top of my wishlist, all the time! It’s lengthening, it’s dark black, I love the brush, it’s easy to get off at night...and it’s not priced crazy expensive."
Sofie Pavitt, Esthetician & Acne Specialist
On her wishlist: Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Universal Daily Peel Pads & a Canopy Humidifier
"Dr. Dennis Gross' Alpha Beta Universal Daily Peel Pads are my favorite peel pads and my favorite product to gift to people — dads, sisters, friends, everyone will love these gently exfoliating, glow-inducing peel pads. Perfect for skincare newbies and experts alike!
Colder weather and heated appliances in the home lead to dryer air and therefore drier skin. I advise all my clients to start using a humidifier like this one once the heating is on in their homes, and it makes a huge difference."
