Yes to Tomatoes Clear Skin Spot Stick, $10

Think defusing a breakout is mission: impossible? Think again! After a quick roll of this zit zapper, our tester "noticed improvement right away," she says. That's because the corrector is rich in lycopene (an antioxidant from tomatoes that protects skin from pore cloggers) and tea tree oil, a natural bacteria killer. The savviest part: The soothing roller ball keeps dirt and oil from not-so-clean fingers away from already-clogged skin so the solution can do its job better.

Maybelline New York Volum' Express One by One Mascara, $8

Our tester was skeptical about this lash lifter at first, but it became a gotta-have as soon as she tried it. "The brush looks like a tiny football, which is weird, but the long and short bristles coat every lash without clumps. Amazing!" she says.

It's treatment on one end, concealer on the other. Our tester sums it up better than we can: "Love, love, love—I fell in love! The first thing my mother said when she saw me after using it was 'Oh, my gosh, your skin looks so clear.'" Thanks, Mom!




Best Shatter Nail Polish:

Shatter by OPI, $9

Since it came out this year, shatter polish (you know, that funky top coat of color that looks like broken glass) has made a major impact on manis. This formula, which isn't too thick or too thin, "adds a cool texture over any polish, so your color options are endless," one tester says. Try turquoise over your favorite green polish for a subtle ocean vibe, or layer white crackle over metallic gold for snakeskins. Our fave? Channel a sunset with an orange base and red crackle.

Best Nail Polish:

Sally Hansen Smooth and Perfect Color + Care, $6

This pretty polish actually fills ridges and nicks; its formula's color "looks professional," our tester says. But it also allows more oxygen to come in contact with the nails than regular polish, so ridges are evened while you rock one of the eight spring-friendly hues.




Best Top Coat:

Essie No Chips Ahead Chip Free Top Coat, $8

When we heard this finishing touch could keep polish from chipping for 10 days, we didn't buy it. But our testers proved us wrong: "I've never had a top coat work so well! For the first time ever, I changed my polish because I was bored, not because my mani was chipped. The top coat lasted longer than any other I've tried." Impressive!



Best Gradual-Glow Lotion With SPF:

Jergens Natural Glow & Protect, $9

This new twist on the SELF fave now has SPF 20 sunscreen built in, so you can build color while you block UV rays. "It's like I get rewarded for using sunscreen," a previously pasty reader says.





Best All-Around Shampoo:

Trump’s company, the Trump Organization, does regular business with foreign governments, presenting them with an opportunity to launder unconstitutional gifts to the president. Although Trump announced at a press conference prior to his inauguration that he would take some steps to insulate himself from his company, Norm Eisen, former chief ethics counsel to President Obama and Richard Painter, who held the same job under President George W. Bush, released a statement saying that these steps are insufficient.

It was a shocking turn of events for an area popular with American and other foreign tourists, which until now had largely been spared from the bloody drug wars wracking other parts of Mexico.

    • AT&T is losing cellphone customers, fast

      AT&T is steaming ahead at full speed with its plan to merge with media company Time Warner. That's probably a good thing for the company's bottom line, as the wireless business is losing customers at speed. According to an analyst note from Cowen and Company Equity Research, seen by  Fierce Wireless , AT&T is leading other carriers in customers departing every quarter. "“When asking postpaid subscribers that have been with their carrier (less than) two years which carrier did they previously have, the top answer for current Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon respondents was ‘previously AT&T,’ whereas in previous surveys it’s been more mixed," the note reportedly said. That makes sense when you look at AT&T's numbers. The company lost 268,000 subscribers during Q3 2016, and a Wells Fargo analyst predicted  that the company lost another 220,000 in the fourth quarter. AT&T claims the subscriber losses are due to a new, more focused retentions system, whereby they focus more on lucrative customers, and allow those on cheaper plans to defect to other cell carriers. That's what you'd expect a company that's slowly fading to say, but it does also make a small amount of sense given AT&T's recent direction. It's focusing more on high-value customers who buy cable, TV and wireless service in a bundle, or those who at least subscribe to DirecTV Now. The strategy adopted by T-Mobile , which is probably stealing most of AT&T's customers, is nearly the complete opposite. For T-Mobile, it's all about selling the single semi-unlimited data plan it now offers and getting multiple lines onto one account. Time is going to tell which strategy ultimately makes more money, but history is more in favor of T-Mobile's direction here. The economics of wireless leans in favor of the more customers, the better. The additional cost of letting one more customer use your giant national infrastructure is low, so the more customers you have, the easier it is to grow your network -- and the data shows that the one thing people really care about is good service.
