GLOSSYBOX is a jewel that stands out among the many beauty-subscription services making the rounds. What better way to experience the thrill of getting mail every month than by receiving a pink box packed with trial-sized versions of luxury and niche cosmetics? The assortment is full of items you actually want to use, from brands like OPI, Redken, and La Prairie, and it includes a descripton cards with tips and tricks on how to use each product. The box is cute enough to leave out and store unsightly items.

The winter months call for a special kind of treatment to our skin. The Hyaluronic Marine Hydrating Modeling Mask from Dr. Dennis Gross is a much-needed step to add to your skincare regimen during this driest of seasons. Used in professional spa procedures, the mask comes in two packets, each filled with a gel and a powder. When the two are mixed together, they create a unique texture to aid in hydration, radiance, and give skin-plumping results. I love feeling like I am doing a science experiment when combining the two. My skin sucks up every bit of moisture and still feels dewy the next morning. Judy Graham of Pink on Palmer turned me on to this 1-2 mask. She says her customers swear by it in the colder months, “delivering relief to tired, lifeless, and flaky skin.” $46
