A Beauty Minute With Alyssa Coscarelli

5 days ago by

Morning: I’m loyal to cleansing, but not to cleansers. In the morning I wash with whatever I feel my face needs; sometimes Glossier Milky Jelly, other times Clearasil’s Acne Marks Wash, or just Bioderma micellar water. I tone morning and night with Biologique Recherche classic P50 lotion, a total gamechanger and worth the splurge. Lately I’ve been loving serums and moisturizer from Skinceuticals, and I wear Glossier’s sunscreen every single day. I’ve also recently been turned on to the Nuface Mini, an at-home microcurrent device that just, well, makes you look alive. As for my hair, I use everything from The Ouai: the volumizing shampoo and conditioner, wave spray, rose oil, dry shampoo are all favorites for my everyday natural waves.

Day: During winter I like to keep Avène Thermal Spring Water spray and Glossier Balm Dot Calm in my bag, always. I also carry around my entire makeup bag, which is a light mix of drugstore and other branded products. I love Maybelline’s Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circle Concealer under the eyes, and Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer anywhere else. I also use Maybelline’s Spider Lash mascara and Benefit’s bronzer and highlighter routinely.

Night: I remove my makeup with Bioderma micellar water, then again, cleanse with either a gentle cleanser or Mario Badescu’s Glycolic Foaming Cleanser. Again, I tone with P50 and finish off with my same serum and moisturizer. If I have time, I’ll do Biologique Recherche’s Masque Vivant whenever I can. And if my face needs a little extra drink, Valmont’s Prime Renewing Pack is great to sleep in if you want to wake up with glowy skin. On any breakouts, I swear by Kate Somerville’s Eradikate.


Does it get any more effortlessly cool than Alyssa? We think not. She’s a constant source of inspiration and healthy jealousy around the Studio.
