Shopping: The Best Beauty Balms
The latest go-to product for jet-setters: beauty balm. An Asian skin-care secret for years, the combination anti-aging concealer, moisturizer, and sunscreen adapts to almost any skin type. And it’s finally stateside, thanks to South Korea’s Dr. Jart, whose Premium variety ($39) is said to promote collagen production. Dior got into the game with Hydra Life BB Crème ($56), which blends a mattifying powder with hydrating plant extracts. Clinique’s oil-absorbing Age Defense formula ($37) uses light-reflecting pigments for a healthy glow. Lab Series even created one for men ($38.50). They don’t call it the Swiss Army knife of skin care for nothing.
