Use of cosmetic items getting family in panic (8)
I believe the answer is:
Here is my best explanation:
'use of cosmetic items' is the definition.
'family in panic' is the wordplay.
'family' becomes 'kin' ('kin' can be a synonym of 'family').
'in' indicates putting letters inside.
'panic' becomes 'scare' ('scare' can be a synonym of 'panic').
'kin' going into 'scare' is 'SKINCARE'.
'getting' acts as a link.
