A lot of you have been asking about my skincare routine… With all this talk of beauty and the pandemic, I asked Bidtellectuals: Did you discover a new beauty or skincare product this quarantine? Or have a go-to product to keep you feeling great for working from home? A must-have? These are their favorite products, newly discovered or otherwise, that keep feeling their very best. Check them out and let us know if you discover a new fave!

L’Oréal Root Cover-Up

“I have not been able to get my roots done as much as I would like. And let’s face it, the stress of working from home, online school and everything is increasing those pesky sprouts of gray hair. I went through a few high-end sprays but found L’Oréal’s works the best and is most affordable.”

Missy Steiner, VP of Marketing


“One of my favs. Even the husband can see a difference once I wash my face.”

– Heba Bata, Senior Sta Accountant

Cucumber Witch Hazel Toner

This stuff is AMAZING. Keeps the skin feeling cool, clean, and moisturized. The cucumber scent is v soothing. P.S. Ditch the single-use cotton rounds. Apply with a reusable cotton round and save the environment!

– Ashley Ashley Gennarelli, Senior Strategic Account Manager

Lifeline Skin Care Recovery Night Moisture Serum

I love this product because of how great it is for my skin. It is literally my botox in a box!!! You have to use it for 3 months before you see the difference, but I promise that all my peeps who I shared it with – LOVEIT!!!

– Lisa Friedman, Director of Sales, East

PRISM 20% AHA + 5% BHA Exfoliating Glow Facial

“I love this!”

– Terah Bocchi, SVP of Sales

SUNDAY RILEY Luna Retinol Sleeping Night Oil

“I discovered this sleep oil during the sale. I love it! After just one week of use, two people commented on how great my skin looked. It doesn’t go on greasy, which I like, and makes my skin look brighter and smoother in the AM.”

Ashley Mickelwaite, Senior Strategic Account Manager

Peter Thomas Roth Pumpkin Enzyme Mask EnzymaticDermal Resurfacer

“Great for a dull day and you need a pick me up.”

– Heba Bata, Senior Sta Accountant

Estée Lauder Double Wear Radiant Concealer

“This is my FAVORITE concealer and the best for that “no makeup” (clearskin) look. Easily covers up redness and under-eye circles when I’m tired. Perfect for a quick touch up before a Zoom call!”

– Charlotte Otremba, Sr. Manager of Communications and Marketing

Honest Mascara

“One of the perks of COVID and having to WFH is that I don’t have to wear makeup every day…but a must-have beauty product for me is my HonestMascara. I have tried so many different brands/price points and this $16mascara works better than any of them! I have short lashes, and this product definitely boosts lash length. A must-have in your makeup bag!”

– Lysa Vincent, Senior Strategic Account Manager

Ring Light

Do not (go on video) Slack on (without) this. Do you have Zoom burnout? I literally could be the only one at Bidtellect using Snapcam filters to boost my skin etc. BUT, ok, this mini Ring light clips on to your computer or phone and it TOTALLY MAKES A DIFFERENCE. (PS. Don’t forget to “Touch up my appearance” in Zoom preferences).

– Missy Steiner, VP of Marketing

Care by Design CBD Topical

MY BACK HURTS. Ok, well it used to hurt SO MUCH working from home. I have had moved around my house – from the kitchen stools to the couch, to a desk, nothing helped. My friend told me about this topical cream and literally, instantly my back started to feel so good.

– Missy Steiner, VP of Marketing

Sonia Kashuk Rose Quartz Roller

Pop this in the fridge for a bit and roll away. It’s great for reducing inflammation and feels amazing. Really effective and calming.

– Carissa Parrish, Director of Sales, East

Mei Apothecary Jade Gua Sha Facial Massage Tool

“If you don’t know how to use a gua sha tool, follow @noyskincare onInstagram. Enjoy your natural facelift and massage!”

– Carissa Parrish, Director of Sales, East

Hopefully, some of these beauty, skincare, makeup, or self-care items struck your fancy! Treat yourself. You deserve it.
