Carolyn Holdsworth, spa director of Salt Spa at The Reeds at Shelter Haven (Stone Harbor, NJ), shares her personal faves.

Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler: “I can’t remember when I wasn’t using this product. It’s been at least 20 years. It makes my eyes look awake and my lashes look longer. Even when I’m not wearing mascara, which is almost never, this device is a must.”

SkinCeuticals C E Ferulic: “This is the best daily serum on the market. It has changed my skin more than any product out there. It helps with discoloration, texture, and fine lines. I use it every day without fail.”

Dermalogica MultiVitamin Thermafoliant: “This has been my go-to manual exfoliant for years. Because it has super fine particles and that little bit of lactic acid, my skin’s texture is transformed after just one use.”


Blind Barber Daily Face Cleanser: “Being located in a coastal destination, I enjoy products that embrace light and fresh ingredients. This Watermint Gin cleanser clears the day away from the face and is made with juniper berry and botanical extracts. It’s perfect for all skin types, too. I love traveling with it.” 

SkinCeuticals H.A. Intensifier: “This serum leads the pack of hyaluronic acids in my opinion. The delivery system is unique, and the effects are really obvious. I can’t live without it.”
