Real Beauty, Real Health

From a concealer that fights blemishes to an eye cream that targets fine lines, we tested hundreds of products to find the 14 best, the healthiest ones for you. Read the rave reviews from our judges--dermatology experts Lisa Donofrio, MD, Sandy Tsao, MD, and Grace Pak, MD. Then turn to page 112 for more on why these are the year's very best.

BEST FOUNDATION

"I never imagined this white liquid could turn into a foundation," Tsao says. "But it provides excellent coverage and lasts all day."

BEST HAND PRODUCT

"You can use this as an all-over exfoliator--on your feet, elbows, even on those hard-to-treat bumps you get on your upper arms," Donofrio says.

BEST FACIAL CLEANSER

"This foamy cleanser is great if you want to pare down your skin-care routine," Pak says. "It cleanses, tones, and removes makeup all at once."

BEST CONCEALER

"Some concealers leave a mark where you apply them," Tsao says. "But this one blends perfectly, and it comes in 12 shades so you wilt easily find your match."

BEST SUNBLOCK

"You won't use a sunscreen if it's difficult or messy to apply," Pak says. "This one is quick-drying and won't drip into your eyes."

BEST MASCARA

"This clear base coat hydrates and thickens lashes," Tsao says. "Follow with a light swipe of mascara."

BEST EYE CREAM

"This product absorbs quickly," Donofrio says, "so there's no shininess around the eyes that could accentuate imperfections.

BEST SHAMPOO

"Try this once a week as a clarifying shampoo," Donofrio says. "The fruit acids help get rid of styling-product buildup."

BEST FOOT CREAM

"Apply to feet before bedtime," Pak says. "The humidity under the sheets helps skin absorb the cream."

BEST BODY LOTION

"I love the high concentration of alpha hydroxy acids--30 percent more than most body lotions," Pak says.

BEST CONDITIONER

"This is all natural: no parabens or preservatives,," Donofrio says. "And the strummer scent! I wish it could be bottled in a perfume."

BEST MOISTURIZER

"An excellent moisturizer that's best for sensitive and easily irritated skin," Pak says.

BEST STYLING PRODUCT

"YOU can't beat this product's versatility." Donofrio says. "It enhances curls and smooths flyaways."

BEST LIP CREAM

Glides on easily to help heal cracked lips," Tsao says. "You can use it alone--it's colorless--or as a base under your lipstick."
