When it's time to update your closet for fall, do the same with your beauty products. Reach for a thicker face moisturizer and swap that tropical-scented body wash for a cozier, exfoliating formula to help fend off dry, flaky skin. This fragrance has notes of apple and vanilla that fills the shower and lingers on skin. The gentle beads slough off dead cells so legs feel silky smooth going in and out of tights.

Creating a dramatic eye no longer requires multiple products and brushes (or a ton of time and patience). Simply trace this creamy pencil along your top and bottom lash lines, and then smudge with your finger. Or, try a smoky eye by swiping the color all over your lids, into your crease, and then blending. It’s available in eight shades, but use the online guide to find the one customized for your eye color.

Meet the one product that will help your skin transition from sunny summer days to brisk fall nights without so much as a clogged pore—or flaky patch. Packed with ceramides and aloe vera, this soothing salve feels refreshingly light on skin, but delivers just as much hydration as its creamier counterparts. Not convinced? It’s also the moisturizer responsible for giving many models that dewy radiance during Fashion Week.
