First Looks Friday: The Most Exciting Beauty Products to Hit Our Desks This Week

Welcome to First Looks Friday, a new weekly beauty series that will highlight the newest, coolest, must-see products that hit our desks this week. Even though we do our best to include and post about the latest and greatest in the world of beauty, we're flooded with so many cool formulas that we're physically unable to feature every single one within our scheduled lineup of stories. But now, we can change that! Consider this your one-stop-shop weekly beauty debriefing of everything cool happening in the product industry. Though we haven't tested these products long-term, you'll get a quick description of the labels that caught our eye and the formulas we can't wait to stow in our bags and take home with us. Keep scrolling for this week's beauty haul.   The CosRx Pimple Patch Set  It's like the K-beauty geniuses at CosRx somehow knew I had the worst PMS-induced breakout this week. The brand sent us a host of its best-selling skin goodies (including the cult-loved snail mucin line which even celebrity facialists get behind), but we're most excited about these handy pimple-busting patches. Each patch features a hydrocolloid dressing that absorbs oil while simultaneously extracting impurities and protecting the affected area from further.

Now, the brand has officially launched a lightweight oil-free iteration every beauty editor is clamoring to get their hands on.

Normally, I'm insanely picky, but I've been loving every scent that seems to cross my desk. That said, this new launch from Acqua di Parma is one to truly behold. The first day I sprayed it in the office it caused actual chaos. (In the best, compliment- and question-heavy way possible.) It's a floral citrusy number enriched with notes of bergamot, yellow mandarin, pink pepper, sakura, jasmine sambac, and musk.
