The New Year is an ideal time for making resolutions and setting new goals—but also, of course, for upgrading your beauty routine. Luckily for us, Halle Berry is already delivering much-needed guidance on where to start with the best beauty picks of the year. The 56-year-old actress recently took to Instagram to share a video showing off her must-have products for 2023.
“I wanted to share some of my FAVORITE things I think every woman should have in 2023,” she wrote in the caption. “Hope these goodies bring you as much joy as they’ve brought me.”
Of course, there were plenty of beauty picks on Berry’s list—including the actress’s favorite skincare and health essentials, as well as her go-to makeup product.
When it comes to skincare, Berry says there’s one thing everyone needs to try. “If you don’t know about the Knesko masks—face mask, neck mask, lip mask—get into it,” she says. “These are the best facial masks I have found.” Knesko’s best-selling mask is the Nano Gold Repair Collagen Face Mask—also a cult favorite among celebrities—which includes ingredients such as 24K Colloidal Gold to repair skin, hyaluronic acid to hydrate, and elastin to reduce wrinkles.
And if you need the mask for a specific part of your face—as Berry mentions—Knesko also has the Nano Gold Repair Collagen Eye Mask, Lip Mask, and Neck Mask.
Olga Lorencin is a brand that Berry has sworn by for years—she’s previously touted their 3-step Red Carpet Facial in a box—but this year, the actress is especially loving their Heal the Need Recovery Face Serum. “You’re going to need this for your face in 2023—trust me,” she says. “You put this on, you wake up, and you’ve got a new face. It happens to me every morning.”
With a powerful blend of ingredients including Marula Seed Oil, Avocado Oil, and Passion Fruit Seed Oil, this restoring face serum promises to deeply hydrate and repair skin while also diminishing wrinkles, evening skin tone, and even soothe eczema-prone and redness-prone skin.
Berry didn’t forget to share her go-to hair product for silky-soft hair—the Virtue Restorative Hydrating Hair Treatment Mask with Keratin, which she calls her “favorite, favorite hair conditioner right now.” Suitable for all hair types, this hair mask is infused with keratin to repair damaged strands, while also delivering intense hydration the brand says it will “take hair from dry and damaged to silky soft in as little as three minutes.”
Plus, reviewers seem to love it, too. “I have never found such an amazing hair mask for heat-damaged and color-damaged hair,” raves one reviewer. “If you are done with having damaged, dry, frizzy hair and split ends, then this product will change your life.” The best part? It’s super affordable at under $40. “Get this recovery mask,” Berry urges. “We’ve got to care about our hair.”
