If you have combination or oily skin, consider picking up EviDenS’s Blemish Out Concentrate to rebalance your skin’s sebum production levels. It’s enriched with a botanical blend that fights inflammation, diminishes redness, tightens pores, and prevents new blemishes from forming. Infused with the brand’s signature Jardin de Grasse scent, you’re basically getting an aromatherapy facial while fighting those acne flare-ups.

Don’t let the pink bottle of Narciso Rodriguez’s New Eau Néroli Ambrée fool you. It may look cute, but the stuff inside is seductively intoxicating. The combination of orange blossom, frangipani, and soft amber accord creates a scent that’s feminine but warm and vibrant. The woody and amber notes may recall the autumn season, but the hints of citrus remind us of the warmth of the sun.

YSL Beauty’s Pure Shots Night Reboot Serum harnesses the benefits of the moonlight cactus, a plant native to Morocco that the brand has cultivated at its own Ourika Gardens in Morocco. Just like the plant’s resilience in extreme climates, the serum nourishes skin with active ingredients that protect it from the harsh pollution of the city. The best part? It activates its exfoliating properties and protects skin from oxidative stress during your beauty sleep.

More than just an elixir in a bottle, this limited release designed by French artist Alex et Marine will brighten up your vanity table as much as your complexion.
