The Top Must-Have Beauty Essentials from the W&D Team

The Beauty Essentials from the W&D Team – Wit & Delight

One of my favorite questions to ask my girlfriends is “If you had to choose one product in your makeup bag, and only one, which would be your favorite?” Although it might sound like a fairly simple question, choosing just one item from the hundreds that overflow your bathroom makeup drawer is no easy feat. On the hunt for some new beauty recs, I recently surveyed the W&D team to see what moisturizer, mascara, cleanser or masque they simply could not live without. I’ve compiled the results and sprinkled in a few of my personal favs, too. Now it’s your turn to share… what’s your favorite go-to beauty product these days? We’re always looking for new products and treatments to gab about.


“I spent a few years experimenting with various primers trying to find one I loved but never had any luck until trying Onomie’s Powerful Priming Serum. Made using natural ingredients, it feels much more lightweight than the others and keeps my makeup looking fresh all day long” – Paige

Mario Badescu Drying Lotion is the answer to 99% of my skin problems.” – Judith

“Lately, I’ve been hooked on Aveda’s Phomollient Styling Foam for adding volume and shine to my hair. It works great on days when I don’t have time to blow-dry, too.” – Kate

“After just one use of the Keep Young & Beautiful Instant Firming Shot by REN, I could tell a difference in my skin; instantly feeling smoother, tighter and firmer.” – Bridget

I apply Osmia Organic’s all-natural Spot Treatment to blemishes before going to bed, and they all nearly disappear by the time I wake up.” – Stefani

“Mario Badescu’s oil-free Seaweed Night Cream works wonders.” – Bridgette

“While I brush my teeth and get ready in the morning, I like to put on the 24K Gold Pure Luxury Lift & Firm Hydra-Gel Eye Patches. They work wonders on reducing any swelling and jumpstarting your skin.” – Judith

“I enjoy anything Tata Harper, but lately I’m into their new Clarifying Cleanser which leaves me feeling very clean!” – Stefani

“L’Oreal Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara this is my go-to mascara.” – Bridget

“Bio-Oil Specialist Skincare is great for moisturizing and removing makeup.” – Judith

“No question, Cle De Peau Beauté Concealer is the best concealer I’ve ever used. Period.” – Kate

“I love using Vichy Mineral 89 Hyaluronic Acid Serum Moisturizer Daily Skin Booster as a base under moisturizer or simply alone. It’s great for hydrating and brightening when my skin is feeling dull from stress, lack of sleep, etc.” – Amber

“I’ve used the Marc Jacobs Beauty Perfection Powder for a while now, and I absolutely love how it’s a matte finish.” – Paige

“For an instant glow plus a subtle spark, I highly recommend the Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick. They’re always coming out with new variations, too!” – Kate

“An overnight masque so good, they named it the Wedding Masque.” – Bridgette

“I recently bought the Nars Laguna Bronzer and I love it.” – Stefani

“I am in love with this Carrot Seed Oil from Naturopathica, it left my skin feeling amazing after one use.” – Kate

    Thank you for the recommendations. The seaweed night cream sounds intriguing. Might go see for myself, hope I can get it where I live! 😀

    I’m all about finding skincare products that cleanse and hydrate my skin. Currently a fan of Son & Park’s Beauty Water and Sunday Riley’s Clay Cleanser. On the makeup front, I try to keep it low key. But came across Hourglass’s Arch Brow Gel and am hooked. My favorite mascara is Chanel’s Dimensions (a combo of length and volume).
