Underscored editors’ favorite products of November 2021

In November, we were introduced to a plethora of products from skin care essentials to Advent calendars. Some were forgettable, while others left a lasting impression. Because we’re committed to spotlighting the best products out there, we’ve decided to curate roundups of our favorite products we try each month.

So, what were those products we loved in November? Keep reading to check out the products we tested and couldn’t get enough of, or look back at our October favorites too.


Beats Fit Pro

The Beats Fit Pro are the AirPods that I’ve been waiting for Apple to make. These buds offer all of the AirPods Pro’s key features — including active noise cancellation and a Transparency mode — within a design that’s more secure and comfortable. And unlike the AirPods, the Fit Pro actually offer a few color options, including the gorgeous Stone Purple variation I’ve been rocking. Did I mention they’re $50 cheaper? I haven’t put the Fit Pro down since they first arrived at my door, and after jumping between the AirPods Pro and various Jabra options over the past year, my quest to find the perfect earbuds just might be over. — Mike Andronico, senior tech writer

Solo Stove Bonfire + Stand in Elemental Color Series

I got a first look at Solo Stove’s new Elemental Color Series. This is the first time the brand has offered a color coating on any of its products. The deep blue hue of this Water-colored Bonfire Solo Stove blends seamlessly into the backyard! The Elemental Color Bonfire stoves are estimated to start shipping on Nov. 29. — Rosanne Salvatore, deputy editor

211201155839 underscored ed picks great jones dutch baby


Great Jones Dutch Baby

I’ve had Great Jones bakeware for about a year now and absolutely love the way they bake and the way they look. So when Great Jones recently unveiled its 3.5-quart mini Dutch oven, I just had to try it. I cooked a squash soup in it the other day for a Friendsgiving, and not only was it a breeze to cook in, but it was truly the showstopper in our potluck-style spread. — Kai Burkhardt, associate editor

Madewell The Perfect Vintage Jean: Instacozy Edition ($135;

211201155411 underscored ed picks madewell jeans


Madewell The Perfect Vintage Jean: Instacozy Edition

I was already a major devotee of Madewell jeans, but the brand’s new Instacozy line is my new go-to for colder weather. The denim is woven with wool for a bit of added warmth — which I absolutely need now that temps are dropping in New York — and this Perfect Vintage high-rise, straight-leg style is almost too cool. — Chelsea Stone, commerce editor

211201160022 underscored editors picks harrys


Harry’s Nourishing Skin Care Essentials

Now that I’m in my 30s, I’ve been thinking more about how to take care of my skin, and as a die-hard fan of everything Harry’s makes, I was thrilled when the brand debuted its new face care line a few months ago. In addition to the brand’s Freshening Face Toner ($8;, I’ve been using its Nourishing Skin Care Essentials bundle every day and night — which includes Daily Face Lotion, Hydrating Night Lotion and Brightening Eye Cream — and my skin has never felt better. I typically hate adding new to-dos to my daily routine, but I genuinely look forward to mornings and nights now when I get to apply my toner and lotions. — Daniel Toy, copy editor

211201154925 underscored editor picks rituals advent calendar


Rituals Advent Calendar

I had a blast setting up my Rituals Advent calendar, complete with twinkle lights and 24 beauty products. I can’t wait to open a new package every day in December and be treated to mini candles and bath and body favorites. — Rosanne Salvatore, deputy editor

Madewell Matte Travel Candle, Après Ski ($10;

211201155553 underscored editors picks apres ski candle


Madewell Matte Travel Candle, Après Ski

I didn’t really know that travel candles were a thing; I just burn this little guy in my house. But, wow, it smells incredible. If you’re looking for the perfect winter scent to fill your home with — think: cinnamon with orange and spearmint sprigs — this is it. — Chelsea Stone, commerce editor

Wander Beauty Baggage Claim Eye Masks ($25;

underscored ed picks wander beauty baggage claim eye masks


Wander Beauty Baggage Claim Eye Masks

Ever since I’ve been introduced to Wander Beauty’s cult-favorite under-eye masks, they’ve become an essential part of my skin care routine. The gold foil masks, which are just as pretty as they are effective, visibly brighten, hydrate and reduce puffiness and even fine lines — almost instantly. They’re suitable for all skin types, and in my opinion, they’re the most perfect holiday stocking stuffer. (Hint, hint!) — Stephanie Griffin, social media strategist

Summer Fridays Soft Vanilla Candle ($27, originally 36;

211201155342 underscored editor picks summer fridays candle


Summer Fridays Soft Vanilla Candle

I am candle-obsessed to the point where I probably have 35-plus candles in my apartment at any given time, so when I tell you that this is my favorite candle of all time, it’s saying a lot. I am always a fan of warm, vanilla scents, but this soft vanilla candle from Summer Fridays simply smells better than any candle I’ve ever owned. It is comforting and vanilla-y without being overpowering or cloying, and the second I started burning it I knew I was in love. — Hayley Saltzman, head of social

underscored ed pick herbal zen aromatherapy shower bombs


Herbal Zen Shower Steamers

Feeling a little extra holiday stress this year? Start your day with an Herbal Zen shower steamer to get that extra boost of essential oils and calm every day this December. I was pleasantly surprised to find the scent of these steamers to be both subtle and relaxing. The variety pack comes with different flavors depending on your mood, from energy-boosting scents to morning citrus mint. — Rosanne Salvatore, deputy editor

211201155729 underscored editor picks awe inspired layering necklaces


Awe Inspired, The Perfect Necklace Layering Set

If you’re looking for a beautiful gift that also gives back, I cannot say enough good things about the pieces from Awe Inspired. The jewelry brand contributes 20% of all proceeds to charity partners, and there are so many versatile pieces that you’ll likely find something for everyone’s taste. I am a big fan of this layering set, which takes the guesswork out of trying to artfully layer necklaces by showing you exactly how to do it. I love the different textures of these pieces together — they’re simple enough for daily wear but trendy enough to be interesting. — Hayley Saltzman, head of social

211201155803 underscored editor picks wild one carrier


Beis Regulation Pet Carry-On

My dog hates being put in a carrying case, which makes life difficult when it’s time to travel to see family. When we put him in this carry-on by Beis, however, he seemed a lot more comfortable than usual, and he actually lay down during a recent train ride to my parents’ house without whining. Not only is this bag TSA approved and compliant with airline regulations, it comes with a super-soft plush pad on the bottom to keep your pet comfortable. It’s also just a really attractive carrying case, and the beige color is incredibly stylish. — Kristin Magaldi, associate editor

211201160244 underscored ed picks travel bag


State Travel Pouch Set

If you’re reading this, this is your sign to upgrade your travel accessories! I recently replaced my 10-plus-year-old Vera Bradley travel pouch — which was ripped beyond repair — with this travel pouch set from State, and now I am even more excited to travel over the holidays. The set features three zip-around pouches and comes in three different sizes: small, medium and large. The satin material is absolutely gorgeous IRL and each one will undoubtedly keep all of my products — from jewelry to skin care — organized *and* looking cute. — Stephanie Griffin, social media strategist

211201160400 underscored ed picks lovesac


Lovesac Footsac Blanket

They did it. Lovesac has solved the seemingly impossible problem of cold feet peeking out from under a throw blanket. This innovative Footsac has a built-in pocket at the bottom that you can slide your feet into to keep them toasty and wrapped up in cozy blankety warmth. All hail Footsac. — Chelsea Stone, commerce editor

211201160159 underscored editor picks lesse cleanser


Lesse Refining Cleanser

I’ve been using this refining cleanser from Lesse for almost a month now, and I’ve noticed that it has made my skin softer and brighter. I’m not normally a fan of physical exfoliants, but this cleanser’s gentle scrubbing sensation has won me over. It has a light, pleasant scent and texture, and it leaves me feeling refreshed after every use. I’ve noticed that my skin feels better after use, and while the tube looks small, I’ve learned quickly that a little cleanser goes a long way. I’ll definitely continue using this as we head into the dryer winter months, and hoping that it helps prevent the usual flaky skin I experience every year. — Hayley Saltzman, head of social

211201160438 underscored editor picks beyond scrunchie silk


Beyond Scrunchie Silk Scrunchies

This silk scrunchie and the matching pillowcase are the only products that stop my hair from breaking and the pillow prevents bedhead in the morning. They also come in matching sets so they’re just cute! — Hannah Lauson, TikTok strategist

211201154905 underscored editor picks yina sheet mask


Yina Divine Bio-Cellulose Mask

As the season changes, so does my skin, and that means I need to take the extra TLC and change up my products to make sure my skin stays moisturized in this chilly climate. I can say that this mask by Yina has become one of my fall go-to products. I feel like I’m at the spa when I place the mask on my face, and the results are undeniable. My skin feels plump and soft. I layer my moisturizer on top and my skin stays hydrated and glowing the entire day. — Sarai Thompson, social media coordinator

Colorful Standard Merino Wool Hat ($50;

211201154851 underscored ed picks colorful standard beanie steph


Colorful Standard Merino Wool Hat

If you’re going to invest in new pieces for your winter wardrobe this year, make this one of them. The Colorful Standard Merino Wool Hat is made from 100% recycled extra-fine merino wool and has kept me extra warm and cozy on even the coldest of days this fall. Not to mention, the beanie is soft to the touch, and the ivory color looks super chic with everything. Get ready to receive a BUNCH of compliments! — Stephanie Griffin, social media strategist

211201155538 underscored ed picks athleta jacket


Athleta Whisper Featherless Jacket

Athleta is one of my go-tos for activewear, and it turns out the brand’s new Whisper Collection works just as hard to keep you toasty as its sports bras and leggings do to boost your workouts. This jacket uses lightweight 3M Recycled Thinsulate insulation that’s down-free but still super warm, has a handy interior pocket for your valuables and features an ultra-flattering high-low hem. Throw it on for errands around town, and you’re good to go. — Chelsea Stone, commerce editor

211201155100 underscored ed picks matching lc pajamas steph


LC Lauren Conrad Jammies for Your Families Warmest Wishes Pajama Collection

Every single Christmas I try to convince my family to wear matching holiday pajamas, and after years of rejection, I’ve finally convinced them. But since I can’t wait until the holiday — I’m that person who’s already put up the tree before Thanksgiving — I’ve been wearing my set nonstop. It’s extremely comfy yet cool, and the collection even comes with a cute matching outfit for your pet too! ​​— Stephanie Griffin, social media strategist

Curie in a Candle ($32;

211201160503 underscored editor picks curie candle


Curie in a Candle

If you’re a fan of the Curie brand like I am, then you’ll understand that this product is the ultimate treat. The Grapefruit Cassis is one of the brand’s signature scents that I can’t get enough of, and now, every morning, I light the candle and fill my room with this amazing aroma. It’s subtle and awakens my senses. A perfect way to get my day started. — Sarai Thompson, social media coordinator
