Hydrocolloid pimple patches have taken over the internet in recent years — and Starface has found a way to make treating your zits cute AF. Beloved by Gen Z consumers and recommended by TikTok derms, Starface's Hydro-Stars shield pimples from bacteria while absorbing fluid and reducing inflammation. The reusable case holds 32 patches, which you can purchase on a one-time basis or get as a monthly subscription.

Brujita Skincare

Esthetician Leah Guerrero's all-natural skin care brand celebrates "the misfits that the natural beauty market left behind" and uses ingredients you can actually pronounce and recognize for a holistic beauty experience. Handmade in Los Angeles, Brujita Skincare's Essential Kit is a great place to dive into the brand's extensive line of products. Think of it as a sampler kit of the Brujita basics: One cleanser, one hydrosol and one Hechizo Facial Serum.

Luna Mini 3


Foreo facial cleansing massagers are a key part of countless skin care routine videos on TikTok. The Swedish company has different tools for different skin types — and while skin care influencer @caressmd cites the Foreo Luna 2 as a key player in transforming her skin from irritated and acne-prone to something resembling a glazed donut — we like the Luna Mini 3 because it's pocket-sized, relatively more affordable and convenient. The massager features a dual-cleansing surface and 12 adjustable intensities for a deep cleanse.

Freck Beauty's Freck OG

Faux freckles have been a huge beauty trend in recent years — people have even gone so far to get them tattooed on their face by permanent makeup artists — so when Freck Beauty released Freck OG, which the brand says is the first-ever freckle cosmetic, it hit with a bang. Freck OG's formula and applicator are buildable and precise, resulting in the most natural-looking fake freckles you could hope for.
