We write about hundreds of products a week. Here, in our version of the Sunday circular, we’ve plucked out some of our favorites — expert-recommended essentials, life-changing stuff you didn’t know you needed, newly launched gizmos, and the very good deals we uncovered while trolling through the vast online-shopping universe this past week, including a vitamin-C serum made for melanated skin, a do-it-all garment for the leggings averse, and a toothbrush made for tweens.
A vitamin-C serum made for melanated skin
In her guide to the clothing, skin care, makeup, and home décor you can buy if you want to “shop melanated,” contributor Elisa Johnson told us about this Vitamin-C serum formulated for melanin-rich skin that she uses to help brighten and prevent hyperpigmentation and dark spots. “Buttah Skin was created by Dorion Renaud, whose flawless skin I have long admired,” Johnson writes. “I apply this to my face, and any other areas with dark spots, every morning before topping the skin with moisturizer. In addition to its namesake brightening ingredient, this serum’s formula includes collagen-boosting vitamin A, oil-balancing ferulic acid, and hydrating glycerin and hyaluronic acid. It not only helps to give me a smoother, more even complexion, but also hydrates and revitalizes, leaving my skin feeling softer and looking more nourished.”
