Golde Clean Greens Face Mask

“I love this mask for so many reasons: it’s simple, straightforward (and organic!) ingredient list, the fact that it makes my skin feel fresh every time I use it. My face always feels like it got a new life after I rinse it off—plus, I have eczema, and I’ve never had a problem with irritation. In fact, it calms a lot of the redness! On top of that, the color of the mask is so pretty, I can’t help but snap a photo when I wear it.” — Dale Chong, Senior Fashion Commerce Editor

“I use this contour stick every day. I love that it’s a functional two-in-one product and yet the quality of both parts are still amazing. The contour side is rich and creamy and blends well with my skin with the help of a beauty blender (it’s pretty pigmented, so a little goes a long way). And the highlighter gives a sheer golden glow that I just tap onto my cheeks, brow, and nose with my fingers. I’m obsessed.” — Erica Gonzales, Senior Culture Editor

“This year for our birthdays, my friend and I exchanged a registry of sorts, i.e. a list of things we’d actually want for a gift so the other person wasn’t left scrambling to find something. At the top of mine? Hanahana Beauty Shea Body Butter. These whipped, rich butters are the perfect tonic for my dry winter skin, and the company’s handcrafted small batches make each product feel like a luxury experience.” — Madison Feller, Senior Writer

“Whether I’m going out with not a single trace of makeup on or I have a full face on, this lip oil makes the look. All the shades are incredible but Excellence has my heart. I have one at home and one at the office so I can re-apply no matter my situation. It’s glossy, hydrating, and it stays on.” — Tatjana Freund, Beauty Commerce Writer

“I’ve pretty much done everything to my hair in the past year, from getting a relaxer to coloring my hair to wearing protective styles. Considering how often I manipulate my hair, you’d think I’d dread seeing how it looks on wash day, but it’s quite the opposite—and it’s all because of this deep conditioning treatment from Adwoa Beauty. My hair feels buttery smooth and healthier after using this product, which is formulated with an insanely hydrating oil and shea butter blend, especially when I use my heated bonnet to allow the creamy mixture to permeate deep into my shafts.” — Nerisha Penrose, Beauty Commerce Editor

“Black Girl Sunscreen stays on empty in my household. It’s my go-to for sun protection that does its job without leaving an annoying white cast behind. Plus, it doubles as a moisturizer and can replace your favorite primer. What’s not to love?” — Carine Lavache, Senior Social Media Editor

“I’m Trini and a total Carnival girl, so any time I can add pigment to my eyes, I do it. Juvia’s Place Culture Palette helps me achieve some of my favorite, colorful eye looks. Like this neon floating eye (also featuring about-face) makeup artist Deney Adam created for me at the Ulta Beauty salon during NYFW. I’m also wearing Black Girl Sunscreen (fun fact: it makes a great primer!), Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r Foundation, and Mented Cosmetics Bronzer. I’m all about a Black-owned beat!” — Danielle James, Digital Beauty Director
