• Best of UO Beauty 2017

    We rounded up our cream of the crop beauty items of 2017 from skincare, makeup, fragrance, and bath & body. Trust us, none of these items will disappoint.

    Best of Skincare

    Stay fresh-faced in 2018 with these skincare picks. 2017 was all about easy, effortless beauty and we're hoping to carry those good vibes with us into 2018.

    Top picks:

    1. Mario Badescu Facial Spray in rose and aloe. Rose is the OG refreshing spray but the newest aloe is just as amazing for hydrating skin.
    2. Valjean Labs Facial Serums. Inexpensive and effective. For $15, you get 2 full oz. of serum!
    3. Mario Badescu Drying Lotion. This weird little potion has been around for years and it's still our go-to when we need to dry out a stubborn pimple overnight.
    4. TONYMOLY I'm Real Mask Sheet. Stock up on these. They're all cooling and hydrating, perfect to throw on after a shower or right before bed.

    Best of Makeup

    Less is more except when it comes to makeup. 2017 was the year of iridescent highlighters, holographic smudge sticks, and big pops of color. Below are a few products we'll be taking with us into 2018.

    1. ABH Glow Kit. The ultimate highlighter palette.
    2. Milk Makeup Holographic Stick. Use for shining, shimmering pops of color.
    3. Milk Makeup Blur Stick. Primer in stick form. Easy to use and great for travel.
    4. Nudestix. We love Nudestix for its versatility. Almost any product can be used in multiple ways and all their pencils are very blendable.
    5. ABH Brow Wiz. A fine line for drawing on hairs and incredible staying power. Worth the price.
    6. beautyblender. If you don't have a beautyblender yet, please treat yourself to one in the new year. You do want flawless foundation, right? Just trust us.
    7. Touch In Sol No Poreblem Primer. Minimizes pores and smoothes skin, making foundation application a breeze. Don't trust us? Check out the reviews.

    Best of Fragrance

    Like to pick up a new fragrance every so often without breaking the bank? Here are a few of our favorites.

    1. Gourmand Fragrance. At $18, these are way cheaper than most perfumes out there, making them fun to mix and match.
    2. Adorn Fragrance. Same with Adorn! At $24, you're not going to break the bank, and there's a wide variety of scents to choose from. 

    Best of Bath & Body

    Finally, don't forget to pamper your body the same way you take care of your face. Stay hydrated, people. Here are a few of our bathtime essentials below.

    1. Gourmand Shimmering Body Oil. Smells amazing (like coconuts or a day at the beach) and gives skin a subtle sheen.
    2. Petal Perfume Oil. Smells like roses and hydrates nicely.
    3. Evolution Salt Co. Crystal Massage Stone. A totally cute massage stone! Simple and effective.
    4. Slip Silk Eye Mask. Get the best sleep of your life with this silk eye mask that's gentle on the skin.
