The 17 Best Beauty Products Fashionista Editors Tried in October

This month, we were all about mood-boosting finds.

Each month, Fashionista editors try a *lot* of beauty products. And while not every formula we test is a winner, we're constantly unearthing new favorites. Here, we've rounded up our latest hair, skin, fragrance, wellness and makeup discoveries — whether fresh-to-market drops or merely recent additions to our personal routines.

Every month, team Fashionista's favorite beauty and wellness finds are quite indicative of how we spent our time and our mental states. October was all about mood-boosting — and who can blame us? Over the last four weeks, we loaded up on stress-calming ingestibles, soothing additions to our skin care routines, nostalgic lip glosses and happiness-inducing candles. We were also really into protecting our skin from seasonal changes, whether coping with West Coast (outdoor) heat and dryness or East Coast (indoor) heat and dryness.

Since you could perhaps be in need of a bit of mood-boosting and skin-protecting yourself, allow us to share our favorite finds, won't you? Click through the gallery below to see (and shop!) Fashionista editors' most beloved skin care, hair, makeup, fragrance and wellness discoveries from October.

<p><strong>Klur Gentle Matter Daily Moisture Cleanser, $22, <a href="https://klur.co/products/gentle-matter" rel="nofollow noopener" target="_blank" data-ylk="slk:available here" class="link rapid-noclick-resp">available here</a>: </strong>"It takes a <em>lot</em> for me to get excited about a cleanser — they're barely on your skin for a minute! — but this beautifully light and gentle gel cleanser had me hooked after just a couple of uses. It doesn't get foamy or sudsy, but it sort of melts into skin as you massage it in, dissolving makeup and daily grime, but leaving natural moisture behind. Unlike balm or oil cleansers, though, it also rinses away easily and quickly. My face feels refreshed and hydrated after I use it in a way almost no other face wash has ever accomplished." —Stephanie Saltzman, Beauty Director<br> </p>

Innovative, sustainable, effective — and Instagrammable." —Steph Saltzman, Beauty Director </p>
