WWD named its eight game changers today—beauty products from the first quarter of 2011 that stand out from the rest of the new product pack. Have you tried any of these products? What do you think?

1. Veripur, $5.99 to $10.99, available this February, at Walgreens: a hand sanitizer-slash-moisturizer that claims to work for four hours. No more dry Purell hands!

2. Josie Maran Argan Matchmaker Serum Foundation (photo, left), $42 at Sephora: an Argan Oil-infused makeup that automatically adjusts to match your skintone.

3. Kerastase Chroma Sensitive hair cleanser, $42, available this February at salons: a low-foam sulfate- paraben- silicone-free hair cleanser that's three parts condition to one part suds—and created specifically to use the first few days after a hair color treatment.

4. Neutrogena Wet Skin Sunblock, $10.99 at a sweat-proof and swim-proof sunblock that can be applied directly to wet skin.

5. Bumble and Bumble Texture hair(un)dressing creme, $26, available this March in salons: a gel-meets-cream that creates the much-coveted hard-to-achieve bedhead look.

6. Revlon CustomEyes mascara (photo, right), $7.49 at Target: comes with an omg adjustable wand that can be altered with a dial to create volume and length.

7. Almay Wake-up Hydrating Makeup, $12.99 at a powder foundation that hydrates and moisturizes throughout the day.

8. RickyCare KeratinPlus and No-Frizz hair brushes and combs, $9.99 to $15.99 at brushes and combs infused with olive oil and keratin to prevent frizzing and add shine.
