Welcome to the first day of our month-long Latina Editor Beauty Road Test! Each editor has chosen a few beauty products and tools to put to the test, and will be writing about her results here. We’re trying everything from eye creams to self-tanners to at-home keratin straightening treatments, so check back often! And if there’s a product you’ve been curious about, let us know—we’ll be happy to give it a go for you.

If you are going to read only one novel this summer, choose one that allows you to explore your own life and its fragility. In Say Her Name (Grove Press; $24, out now), author Francisco Goldman takes us into the most intimate aspects of the love he shared with his late wife Aura Estrada. After she died in a bodysurfing accident while vacationing in Mexico, this Brooklyn-based writer creates the most poignant and heartfelt novel about a mourning widower who narrates Aura’s life and how she transformed his.
