The moment we tore open the packaging of One’s new facial paper masks, we were immediately transported to college—freshman year, to be exact. It was the nineties, mall beauty emporiums like Bath & Body Works ruled, and in our dorm, a few smells were a constant presence: ramen being one, and the scent of cucumber melon bath products being the other. The latter boasted a clean, sweet aroma that actually smelled nothing like real cucumber, but that we loved nonetheless—and still can’t get enough of. The latest beauty offering from the eco- and wallet-friendly drugstore brand known for its unfussy formulations and plastic-free packaging is a slightly grown-up version of this original fragrance in mask form. One’s cucumber aloe mask is a deeply hydrating treat and is perfectly fashioned for travel. There is one con: Those of us with wider faces and, apparently, oversized peepers could do with a bit more material on the sides and larger eye holes. But we’re willing to overlook this issue since each time we pat one onto our freakishly large face, we are reminded of our carefree, cup-o-noodle-eating youth, when well-hydrated skin was a given.
The euro may be used in 22 countries, but when Uslu Airlines’ Feride Uslu thinks universal currency, it’s the dollar she envisions. The popular Berlin-based cosmetics company she founded has created a nail polish inspired by the greenback. Packaged with a single bill that’s been stamped with the words “world,” “love,” and “money,” the minty green lacquer is called One to convey the notion of singularity between all three concepts—the hope being that One won’t just inspire mani/pedi fans, but a unified world currency as well. (Hey, a girl can dream.) So, why the American currency? “It’s the most known and recognized globally, no explanation needed anywhere,” Uslu says. “It’s the perfect size to fit in every wallet—and it makes the most tip-able currency. T-I-P are three letters we also care about!”
