From trending ingredients like (you guessed it!) anti-inflammatory CBD and skin-loving mushrooms to biodegradable packaging and upcycled ingredients, the latest skin care launches will leave you glowing. And while some products may seem more basic than others, trust us when we say that they do more for the skin than meets the eye. Scroll through our latest list of things to slather on.
It’s hard to pick just one from Holifrog’s stellar debut of four cleansers. And while, generally speaking, you could call Superior the most basic of the bunch, in this case, that’s a compliment. Your standard gel cleanser can be kinda drying, but not this one. It’s leveled way up with the addition of omega fatty acids, probiotics, and antioxidants, and uses none of the harsh soaps or sudsing agents some cleansers use. As a result, skin doesn’t feel the slight bit tight or dry post-rinse.
This clarifying toner blends cleansing, antibacterial colloidal silver with salicylic acid and niacinamide. Niacinamide (which is having a deserved moment) is a super multitasker that helps control oil production and even skin tone. Salicylic acid works beneath the skin’s surface to help de-gunk pores. Of course, the brand’s signature healing concentrate, developed around Hungary’s mineral-rich spa water, is in there, too.
This hydrating overnight mask is powered by the types of superfoods you’re generally encouraged to work into your diet. Turns out, they’re great for your skin, too. There’s reishi mushroom (an ingredient showing up in tons of our favorite new launches right now) and cloudberry which work together with a special sensitivity-inhibiting peptide to help combat redness. Antioxidant-rich shea butter and glycerin replenish skin’s moisture.
The brainchild of cosmetic chemist Ron Robinson, Beautystat’s second launch is a hydrating gel cream full of good stuff. It includes probiotics, reishi mushroom extract, ceramides, and hyaluronic acid, all of which help tighten, firm, plump, and soothe skin.
It wouldn’t be a 2019 skincare roundup without some CBD, and this month we’re loving Beboe’s luxe new moisturizer. With niacinamide to improve pores and even out skin tone, brightening Vitamin C, and plumping peptides, the 250 mg anti-inflammatory CBD is almost just the cherry on top.
To prevent used coffee grounds from going to landfills, British brand Upcircle (newly curated at Credo) repurposes them, giving them second life in lush, affordable skin care products so you can help the planet while you care for your complexion. The gentle face scrub is made with top-notch Arabica coffee grounds blended with soothing chamomile, vitamin-rich jojoba oil, and nourishing shea butter. When it’s rinsed off, skin is left baby’s butt smooth, and super hydrated, not raw or over-exfoliated.
This new moisturizer’s ingredients reads much like that of a delicious smoothie, and thanks to all these natural ingredients, it’s high in skin-protecting antioxidants from pomegranate, acai berry, acerola fruit, and algae. There’s also vitamin C, smoothing peptides, and AHAs for some gentle resurfacing. The result? A healthy, youthful glow.
Add this newcomer brand to your must-know list. Founder Tina Chow Rudolph combined ancient Chinese wisdom with high vibrational alchemy (crystal-collectors, this one’s for you) to craft her collection. We’re loving the serum which uses the brand’s signature “G-team,” a blend of antiseptic, blemish-fighting ginger, collagen-boosting and anti-inflammatory ginseng, and hydrating goji berry. The superhero ingredients don’t stop there, though — there’s also aloe, niacinamide, kelp, and reishi for a true multitasker. This serum soothes, hydrates, and promote cell regeneration. And back to the crystals, if you’re into that kind of thing: It’s infused with amethyst essence, said to heal and purify.
The hero ingredient here is 2-percent brightenyl, a patented ingredient four times more powerful a brightener than vitamin C. Together with hyaluronic acid, and the cooling metal applicator, this eye cream works well under makeup — or on its own— to awaken the eye area.
Removing a full face of makeup on the fly has never been so easy — or eco-friendly. These 100-percent biodegradable capsules contain a hydrating cleansing oil rich in essential omega fatty acids that melts makeup and grime away but leaves skin nourished.
Co-founders and siblings Madison and Matthew Ruggieri have three mens’ grooming companies under their belt — experiences that opened their eyes to the all-too-real pink tax. Their newest venture, Onekind, was founded in part to address gender pricing disparities in the beauty industry. Enter: This affordable retinol and peptide serum that brightens, firms, and smoothes skin and uses birch bark extract and vitamin E to keep irritation at bay.
In products worthy of an ‘everyday’ label, there are a few select ingredients we look for. Luckily, this CBD-infused serum delivers on most of them. In addition to 200 mg of anti-inflammatory CBD, there’s also hyaluronic acid and vitamin C. Calm, hydrated, bright skin right this way.
