8 Texture-Changing Products That Are Practically Magic
Hybrid products are very in right now, as they're both innovative and timesaving. Why choose between a liquid and powder makeup when you can have both? Why cleanse with a gel and then a foam when you can do it in tandem? More importantly, why not take advantage of new and effective technology in your beauty products? We knew you'd be on board. And, don't forget, it's fun too. Keep scrolling to find the coolest shape-shifting products yet.
Bareminerals Clay Chameleon Transforming Purifying Cleanser ($22)
Try this clay-to-cream face wash for combined benefits of purifying Brazilian red clay (it helps to improve the clarity of your skin) and mineral-rich sea salts with a soft cream. It's one of beauty director Deven Hopp's favorites.
May Lindstrom Skin The Problem Solver ($90)
Sure, you've probably seen this product before, as Associate Editor Victoria has turned us all on to the obsession that is May Lindstrom. This mask is called the problem solver for a reason—it helps with everything courtesy of raw cacao, bamboo, charcoal, soil nutrients, salts, and warming spices. It also changes from powder to fizzy foam (!!) when you add water.
Nucifera The Balm ($40)
If you're looking for an all-in-one product, this is it. It's a perfect mix of coconut oil with avocado oil, mango butter, and an essential oil blend of lavender, peppermint, grapefruit, sandalwood, and frankincense. It smells incredible as you smooth the whipped balm over your skin and watch as it melts into a silky oil. I put it on every morning and every night—without fail.
L'Oréal Paris Magic Nude Liquid Powder Bare Skin Perfecting Makeup ($6)
This formula goes on like a liquid and transforms on contact—leaving a soft powder finish that is so lightweight. Truly it feels like you’re wearing nothing at all.
Peter Thomas Roth Firm Peeling Gel ($48)
If we're talking about magical products, this peeling gel takes the cake. Apply the gel, wait a minute, and start buffing it off in small circles. With the help of multiaction enzymes (pineapple, pomegranate, and keratinase), dead skin and impurities literally are swept up and rolled away before your eyes.
