Who Has Time to Hang Out in Sephora for Hours on End?

Beauty Products

Not us. Running our high-octane careers and lives, we have little time to play with makeup (even though we want to!)

Enter curated skin care. A celeb or beauty editor hand-picks your skin care and makeup, giving you a taste of the latest and greatest. And it's delivered right to your door. So you can play with new lipstick shades at home, when you want to.

A few of our faves:

  • For deals on bath and beauty products such as Mason Pearson, Guerlain and Fresh—that are recommended by celeb-curators such as make-up artist Carmindy and fashion designer Donna Karan—check out AhaLife.
  • Want to sample a little of everything? The beauty editors at Birchbox will select four to five deluxe-sized samples and deliver them to you once a month, for $10.
  • Even your guy can get in on it: Get Fresh Kit offers premium samples of shaving cream to moisturizer to cologne for a monthly subscription fee, starting at $20 per month. (Plus, he’ll get expert tips and tutorials on how to actually use the products!)

Skin deep. How do you invest in yourself?
