Last year was chock-full of new skincare products and trends, some of which lived up to the hype, and some of which didn’t get the hype they deserved! Between the rise of CBD and the fall of charcoal masks, there were some skincare gems that didn’t make it into the spotlight—until now! Read on to see which skincare products, brands, and rituals deserved more buzz than they got.
Biossance is a purveyor of clean beauty, best known for their sugar-cane-derived squalane oil. This year alone, they launched a handful of new products including the Squalane + Vitamin C Rose Oil, the Squalane + Rose Vegan Lip Balm, and the Squalane + Marine Algae Eye Cream. On top of that, they started a clean beauty education initiative called the Clean Academy with Queer Eye’s Jonathan Van Ness to help educate the public on clean beauty standards! Talk about deserving the limelight!
This hydrating eye cream with Marine Algae Complex is my favorite. I love the texture of this eye cream it absorbs well not greasy. My skin under eyes feels hydrated for a long time. I will definitely recommend this amazing eye cream to everyone. I’m very impressed with this lightweight serum. I’ve been using this daily morning and night and will continue to use this. I love how my face feels so much softer and smoother.
CeraVe is a tried and true classic that constantly gets overlooked! At some point in your life, CeraVe was probably recommended to you by a friend or a dermatologist, and for good reason. CeraVe the brand was created by dermatologists and utilizes essential ceramides, fatty acids, and other lipids to help the skin repair itself, layer by layer. It’s great for all skin types and has received the most Seal of Acceptance awards from the National Eczema Association than any other brand.
I decided to try this because I was a fan of CeraVe’s other face washes and I heard good things about this one. I’ve gone through probably 5 bottles of this! I can say that it immediately became a staple in my collection! With the addition of ceramides, it is moisturizing enough for my skin yet does not make me oily which is very important for me. It layers beautifully with other products and I’ve never had a problem with it pilling. I’ll probably never go to another daily moisturizer just because I know I can trust this! Plus it is fragrance-free making it amazing for sensitive skin.
The Inkey List
The Inkey List is a newer brand that was founded on the premise of making beauty easier. All that ingredient jargon and marketing promises can make it hard to decide what to really get, but The Inkey List wants to cut through all of that and make it easier for consumers through transparency and education of ingredients.
This mask leaves my face refreshed. I love that cold, minty feeling. The texture is a typical moist clay texture. It does not dry hard and is white in color. I love this mask. I would recommend it for deep pore cleansing.
Volition Apple Cider Vinegar Peel Pads
If you haven’t heard about Volition Beauty, now is a great time to get familiar. Volition is a crowd-sourced clean beauty brand that works with it’s customers to create new products. Cool, right?! It starts off by a customer sending in an innovative idea, then, Volition builds out the formula, and then anyone can weigh in and vote on which product they want to come to life! The winning product gets made and sold on their website and other retailers.
I love this product, because it has great ingredients, including acv, lemon and orange extracts(fruit ahas), Witch Hazel(removes dirt and oil, minimizes pores), and glycolic acid(aha). Super clean ingredients! While the smell may be a bit strong(it’s vinegar, what did you expect), it doesn’t linger at all!
