As the fall season slowly creeps in, we’re starting to revamp our skin care routines for the chillier weather by reaching for heavier moisturizers and stockpiling hero hydrating ingredients like hyaluronic acid and squalane. Sleeping masks are proving a leading trend for fall, too, and some of our favorite brands (hi, Sisley and Glow Recipe) have recent launches we’re already obsessed with. We’ve also been introduced to some brand-spanking-new lines entirely — ones that have already proven themselves as must-knows. Read on for the new skin care products we’ve fallen for this season.
This luxe nighttime treatment maximizes beauty sleep with 1 percent retinoid to lessen the depth of lines and wrinkles and keep skin bouncy. But thanks to squalane and allantoin, it’s super nourishing and won’t dry out skin. Plus, the relaxing lavender smell is a nice touch come bedtime — it’s the perfect way to wind down.
Eighteen B’s third product, like its first two, centers around the brand’s proprietary B-silk ingredient. Essentially, it’s a topical silk that forms an ultra-thin protective layer over the skin that works to defend against environmental damage. The rest of the formula is just as lush — ceramides and squalane work to give skin a much-needed, mega-dose of moisture.
When skin gets irritated, red or blotchy, you’ll want this new cleanser sinkside. It’s loaded with the brand’s signature probiotics, as well as soothing superheroes like colloidal oatmeal, aloe vera, and cucumber. The light milky texture is a sensorial treat that makes washing your face a totally relaxing moment.
Summer Fridays latest launch may not be a mask, but this new gelly lightweight serum keeps the glowy-out-of-office vibes going. Vitamin C is the key here — two forms combine to defend against pollution and brighten, while squalane hydrates and protects the skin.
This ultra-light eye serum smells like a spa, thanks to its high concentration of cucumber extract. It’s also adds a delightful cooling sensation when you tap the product on and around the delicate skin near the eyes. Other natural ingredients include pitaya to tighten, hydrate, and smooth, and hawkweed extract and daisy flower to brighten and even skin tone.
Glow Recipe’s beloved avocado sleep mask is leveling up with the addition of encapsulated vegan retinol. This time-release form of retinol works to stimulate cell turnover and increase collagen production overnight. The polyhydroxy acid (PHA) is still in the formula, too, and together, these two powerhouse ingredients work to tackle hyperpigmentation and leave skin clear and smooth. Matcha, konjac, chamomile, ginger, and avocado revitalize and pack a heavy antioxidant punch while oleic and linoleic acid reduce inflammation.
This balmy eye cream shields the delicate undereye skin with protective antioxidants. The hero ingredient, Japanese white peony, boosts the skin’s barrier function. As it melts in, it hydrates and blurs the look of fine lines and wrinkles, making it great for pre-makeup application.
If you’ve ever dealt with red, itchy or rashy skin, then you’ve likely discovered the healing and soothing properties of good old oats. As First Aid Beauty has always been a sensitive skin-friendly brand, it’s no surprise that the brand is harnessing the ingredient in multiple forms for its first toner. This formula uses oat milk, colloidal oatmeal, and wild oats (with hyaluronic acid and honey) to soothe and hydrate.
Turns out copper is not just a metal but a potent anti-aging ingredient, too. This blue-hued water-based serum gets its gorgeous color from pure copper tripeptide-1, a powerful antioxidant that signals skin cell regeneration. Hyaluronic acid plumps and hydrates and Australian Banksia (derived from native wildflowers) helps the hyaluronic penetrate better.
Ever bought a really expensive serum only to find it did absolutely nada for your skin? Or worse, aggravated it? Atolla wants to fix that. The newly-launched startup uses machine learning (read: really fancy data science) to create custom formulas. Your serum is based on the results of an at-home assessment in which you measure your skin’s pH, oil, and moisture levels. Even better: Because your skin is dynamic and ever-changing, your formula is, too. The company will send you a new testing kit each month and update your formula accordingly.
EvenPrime was inspired by the aesthetics of video games (yes, really) and caters primarily to Gen Z. But anyone, of any age, will enjoy this simple but not basic cleanser. It’s an elegant texture at a super accessible price (plus, you can Amazon Prime it). It transforms from a luxe balmy texture to a low-foam gel with a light-refreshing yuzu scent. Hyaluronic acid, mineral-rich deep sea water, and Pro Vitamin B5 ensure skin is hydrated and never stripped, making it an ideal product to transition from summer to fall.
Philosophy’s newest serum might be the most fun product to use — it has a roller tool built right in. The metal applicator feels cooling as it’s massaged over skin and can be used to manually sculpt the face. The formula itself is a blend of anti-aging peptides, antioxidant edelweiss flower, and kigelia africana extract, all of which work together to help skin appear tightened and lifted.
Vitamin C is a staple in any skincare diet, but some of the industry’s most-loved are also really expensive. Enter: Ghost Democracy. This new brand founded on delivering clean, active formulas at accessible price points. Their Vitamin C is a must-try — it’s a water-, silicone-, and fragrance-free formula that not only contains a whopping 18 percent Vitamin C, but buzzy bakuchiol, a plant-based retinol alternative that performs without sensitizing — to name just a few of the notable ingredients.
Velvet is an appropriate descriptor for this luxurious new overnight mask from Sisley. The formula blends new ingredients like smoothing saffron flower with known hydrating heroes like plant-based glycerin. And even though this formula is intensely nourishing, it doesn’t feel heavy at all. When you touch your face in the morning, it will feel velvety soft.
