It seems like every day there’s something new and groundbreaking when it comes to your skincare products. And the latest doesn’t disappoint: charcoal! What’s so great about it? It opens up pores and helps get rid of excess oils (read: good-bye acne!). Don’t worry. You don’t need to give yourself a facial at your next barbecue; the beauty world has done the work for you by bottling it up and adding it to their products. Here are three to try.

I'm just going to say it: Most complimentary hotel shampoos and conditioners suck. Well, okay, if you’re staying somewhere ultra luxe and glamorous, I'm sure you get some pricy name brand bottles in the bathroom. But most of the times I use the free stuff and it feels like I’m washing my hair with liquid detergent.

Fresh has some of the purest, most enchanting fragrances around. Their ingredients are concentrated, and often rare (hence the higher price points). That’s why we at Latina are absolutely giddy about their new Petite Parfums, a collection of plane-friendly one-ounce glass bottles of some of their popular scents. Not only can they move easily through Customs but the price ($32 each, fresh.com) makes them a much easier purchase.

Recently I was told my face looked healthy, flushed and so well rested. This is a compliment I can't recall hearing in my whole life. (Usually I hear how tired, run-down and pale I look.) I suspected I knew what it was that prompted this comment, so the next day I tickled my cheeks with another helping of La Prairie Cellular Radiance Cream Blush in Peach Glow. I swear, I got two "You look pretty"-comments and one: "You look really good today." It has to be this blush—this incredibly blendable, easy-to-wear anti-aging cream with gorgeous color kick.

For the most part, having dark under-eye circles is a hereditary issue. But that doesn't mean we have to take it lying down! This three-step concealer is by far one of the best I have tried. If you have a few minutes to invest in the process, it will deliver professional results. Seriously.

I like a good lick of pistachio ice cream once in a while. But I was shocked to learn how much I love the Laura Mercier Crème de Pistache line of body products. This particular pistachio scent is so delicious you’ll be tempted to lick the pale green Souffle Body Crème ($55, lauramercier.com) right out of the jar. At once light, sweet and oh-so-unique, it'll be one decadent zero-calorie treat in which you can indulge.
