  • Lisa Shin

    Best Cleansing Wipes

    Burt's Bees Travel-Size Facial Cleansing Towelettes with White Tea Extract ($6 for 10 towelettes, drugstores). Voters praised these wipes for "removing every last bit of even long-wearing makeup and sweat" while leaving skin "smooth." $

  • Lisa Shin

    Best Palette

    Lorac Unzipped Palette ($40, Sephora stores). Packed with 10 eye shadows — mattes and shimmers — and a budge-proof primer, this makeup palette is "light enough to tote to my exercise classes," a tester said.

    Runner up:

    Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette ($50, Sephora stores)

  • Lisa Shin

    Best Makeup Multitasker

    Estée Lauder Daywear Anti-Oxidant BB Creme SPF 35 ($38, esteelauder.com). A "just-right amount of coverage" made this cream, which is a combo of foundation, moisturizer, antioxidant serum, and brightener, a one-step — and no-brainer — winner.

    Too Faced Tinted Beauty Balm Multi Benefit Skincare Makeup ($32, Ulta stores)

     
  • Lisa Shin

    Best Dry Shampoo

    Matrix Design Pulse Clean Remix Dry Shampoo ($15, matrix.com for salons). Keep your dirty hair a secret with this residue-free spray that, according to one user, "lifts oil from hair after a run, gives subtle volume, and has a citrusy scent."

    L'Oréal Professional Fresh Dust Dry Shampoo ($19, lpsalons.com for salons)

  • Lisa Shin

  • Lisa Shin

    Best Portable Fragrance

    Diptyque Eau Rose Roll-On Fragrance ($48, diptyqueparis.com). Not your grandmother's rose perfume, this juice is blended with tangy black currant and warm cedar notes. It's "sweet, not overpowering," one reader said.

    Runner up:

    Burberry Body EDP Purse Spray ($68, department stores)

  • Lisa Shin

    Best Body Mist

    Apotheke M After Bath Tonic in Coconut Jasmine ($9, Target stores). Refresh your body after a hard workout with a spritz of this soft, sweet fragrance that testers said "relaxes you" and "lasts for hours." $
