18 Holy-Grail Skin-Care Products People Can’t Live Without

When it comes to my personal stash of products (or hoard depending on whom you ask), ones for skin-care are definitely the kind I invest in the most. Don’t get me wrong, I love buying makeup, but my face is my canvas, so I put extra thought—and some extra dollars—into the products I use on my skin. It’s the stuff you don’t see that are the real staples of my beauty routine.

I asked 20 men and women to share the tried-and-true skin-care products that are the secret heavyweights in their everyday routines. From top brands like Clarins and Neutrogena, to cult favorites including The Ordinary and Glossier, these are the items they absolutely can’t live without.
