Remember when, in a three-pronged effort to destroy Regina George's life, Cady Heron and co. gave her foot cream disguised as face wash in Mean Girls? All it did was make Regina's face smell like a soft, peppermint foot, but it's still more of a skincare regimen than anything I've historically done.

The merits of dutiful skincare have been much debated, though I think it's generally accepted that "sometimes remembering to use makeup remover wipes" is an insufficient nightly routine in your mid-20s. I made it my New Year's Resolution to do better, and I'm (somewhat) on track thanks to the products you see here–plus a few office recommendations.
