Collagen is needed to keep skin plump and firm. But collagen production reaches its prime in your 20s and then goes downhill from there, which is why this moisturizer is top on our list of must-haves. Developed by Face Place owners Paul Rogers and Tony Silla (one of our favorite celebrity estheticians!), this oil-free wonder cream instantly absorbs into skin for a maximum hydrating and plumping session. After just one use, you'll notice a difference.

Stone Crop Cleanser
This non-foaming gel cleanser is a hero product in our beauty world. If your face is feeling super grimy, it will gently remove the dirt, revealing an instantly fresher, brighter complexion. Stone crop, the formula's key ingredient, hydrates and removes dehydrated cells from the surface. And when paired with a Clarisonic, you'll never wash with anything else again.

A couple drops on the cheeks in the morning before your moisturizer and you'll be walking out the door with a subtle glow. Kiehl's new reviving oil instantly sinks right into skin, leaving no trace of greasiness behind. We even use it on its own throughout the day or after a gym session (on a clean face, of course!) for a quick way to quench thirsty skin. The smell is also reminiscent of a light orange scent, which makes it super refreshing. We seriously can't get enough of this miracle oil.

Between the amazing smell, consistency and prescription-like tube, this cream has become a staple in our beauty arsenal. If your skin is feeling dull and lifeless, all it takes is one application to bring it back to glowing goddess status. Ceramide capsules provide time-release moisture, so it will continue to hydrate throughout the day. While you're supposed to use it as the last step in your skincare regimen since it's a protective barrier, we sometimes slather it on solo. It's that good.

Black Tea Mask
If your skin is in need of some serious TLC, this overnight black tea mask is for you. It's chock-full of black tea ferment, black tea extract, blackberry leaf extract and lychee seed extract, which help improve elasticity and prevent damaging free radicals. It also contains peptides to firm and hyaluronic acid to lock moisture in. Not only does it smell super refreshing, but it's like getting a facial overnight while you sleep. With just one use, expect noticeably softer, radiant skin.

Thermal Spring Water
Seriously, if you've never had the luxury of spraying this Thermal Spring Water from Avène on your face, you're missing out. The famed spray contains thermal water from Saint Odile springs in France, which the brand has been using for roughly 300 years now. And while it may seem silly to purchase a can of water to spray on your face, this mineral-rich version has a proven track record of helping people with major skin issues. The travel-size version is perfect to keep in your purse for a little hydration boost or to cool down on hot summer days. It's something we can't seem to live without.
