As social distancing practices have forced us (for good reason!) to limit our contact with the outside world, restocking our beauty cabinets has become a particularly complicated undertaking. For now, brick and mortar retailers have closed their doors, trips to the drugstore can be stress-inducing, and the package-receiving process is less than perfect. That’s why jumbo-sized beauty products are really having their moment to shine.
To help you limit the number of hauls you need to do to keep your hair and skin happy (and the number of deliveries coming to your doorstep), we rounded up 10 big-boy beauty products. All of them are currently available at Sephora, and will get you through these next few weeks feeling as much like yourself as possible. Self-care and staying at home go hand-in-hand, after all.
Nearly half of our editorial team swears by this gentle cleanser, and it’s the perfect pick for all skin types to use morning and night. You only need a little bit to produce a healthy lather, which means this massive bottle should last for a solid few months.
Even though you’re spending far less time outside than usual, it’s still important to apply sunscreen every day to defend against blue light and the UV coming in through your windows. This hydrating chemical formula goes on clear, provides full-spectrum protection, and calms skin with ingredients like red algae and frankincense.
Derms and editors can’t get enough of these chemical exfoliating peel pads, which are considered as some of the best of the best on the market. The jumbo size comes with 60 treatments, and considering you only need to use them three days a week (or less depending on your skin type), you won’t have to replace them until at least the end of the summer.
If you’re anything like me, because of all the time you’re spending indoors, your skin might feel particularly dry right now. This J-beauty essence, which should be applied after your cleanser and before your serums, can help with hydration, and boosts the permeability of everything you put on after it.
Skipping out on hair washes is more acceptable than ever—in fact, stylists encourage steering clear of shampoo as a way to keep your hair healthy between cuts. This dry shampoo is continually ranked as an editor fave, because it cleans and covers a greasy scalp from your coworkers on Zoom.
On days when you do decide to wash your hair, stylists suggest using something hydrating to combat damage and replenish hair’s moisture. This duo has got ingredients like argan oil and amino proteins to nourish and strengthen strands.
Speaking of argan oil, the Moroccan-staple offers a number of different beauty-benefits from soothing skin to adding shine to hair. You’ll want to slather this pure version of the stuff on from head to toe.
Your daily (ok, weekly) shower will feel like a full-blown spa experience, thanks to this do-it-all shampoo and body wash, which actually smells like someone bottled up heaven and added a nice lather. Use it everywhere, but be warned you might want to spend the entire rest of the day sniffing your skin.
Give your skin the luxury treatment after every shower (however often you may be taking them) with this liter-sized bottle of Kiehls’ iconic lotion. Thanks to cocoa butter and squalane, dry skin will slurp the formula right up.
If your skin is freaking out right now (even with the help of the best-of-the-best value beauty products), derms say this could be why. And these concealers will help you look wide awake on all of those Monday morning Zoom calls.
