Every year, skincare and cosmetic brands roll out a ton of new products and we can’t help but sometimes feel overwhelmed at them all. After all, testing out each product for skin compatibility takes time, risk, and of course money. That’s why we’re listing down the 10 best skincare products of 2018 so far.
Best Skincare Products of 2018: Recommended Favorites
We are now in the second half of the year territory and we’d like to take a moment to appreciate some new and old skincare products that have contributed to better skin among women (and men!) all over the world. These best skincare products of 2018 are highly recommended by the likes of editors from Cosmopolitan, Marie Claire, and PopSugar. Let’s begin!
1. Laneige Vitamin Brightening Cleansing Water
If you’re tired of the same old drugstore brands, head over to Sephora for this gentle micellar water recommended by PopSugar. It’s a multitasking cleansing water that removes makeup while cleansing your skin. Its secret ingredients are a mix of antioxidants from superberry extract and vitamins B and C. Produced without parabens or pthalates. Available at Sephora for $24.
2. Kiehl’s Since 1851 Cucumber Herbal Conditioning Cleanser
Perfect for summer, this amazing conditioning cleanser from Kiehl’s is trusted by editors over at Cosmopolitan for its gel-lotion formula. It’s an ultra-gentle foaming gel-lotion cleanser that softly removes dirt and other impurities from your face while conditioning the skin. The secret ingredient in this cleanser is whole cucumbers and plant-based glycerin, which packs in the moisture and doesn’t leave a dry feeling. Get this at Sephora for $24.
3. Dr. Roebucks No Worries Hydrating Face Moisturizer
If you’re at a loss when it comes to moisturizers, you’re definitely not alone. Most moisturizers today promise a plethora of skin benefits and you never really know what you’re getting. But with No Worries, it’s plain and simple, and worry-free, just as its name suggests. It’s an anti-aging moisturizer that hydrates the skin to lessen the appearance of lines and wrinkles and smoothens the skin. It’s lightweight, which means it’s perfect for summer. Even better, it’s packed with vitamin E, rosehip oil, hyaluronic acid, and macadamia oil that work together to brighten and rejuvenate tired, hydrated skin. Available at Sephora for $45.
4. Allies of Skin Promise Keeper Blemish Facial
For those who are willing to shell out extra bucks to quickly eliminate acne, here’s a tried and tested recommendation from Marie Claire. This product is a leave-on mask that you wear overnight, so it works on your skin as you sleep. It works overnight to brighten your complexion, improve your tone, and reduce blemishes, including acne. It’s powerful, calming organic Rosehip Oil combined with a host of AHAs, enzymes and Probiotics work together to fight blemishes. It also has Hyaluronic Acid and Caffeine to hydrate the skin and make it appear more plump and supple. Available at Net-A-Porter for $120.
5. NeoCutis Lumiere Bio-restorative Eye Cream With PSP
Let’s face it: our eye area is really hard to target. It’s a different type of thin skin that easily dehydrates and immediately shows changes when we lack sleep. That’s why it’s often targeted by many women especially when it comes to aging. Crows feet? No thanks! But thankfully, there’s NeoCutis Lumiere Bio-restorative Eye Cream With PSP, which is an expert-recommended product that contains PSP or Processed Skin Cell Proteins. This is a patented cosmetic ingredient which in simpler terms is a combination of nourishing proteins and polypeptides. This also contains Caffeine, Hyaluronic Acid and Bisabolol that help alleviate skin puffiness and makes it look more plump. Available at Dermstore for $97.
6. Evolve Beauty Hyaluronic Acid Serum
Sometimes, your skin just needs a tall glass of water, figuratively. That’s exactly what you’ll get with this ultra-moisturizing serum from Evolve Beauty. Containing 200 mg of hyaluronic acid, this pure, clear serum is great for hydrating normal to dry skin. It contains organic pomegranate extract and organic rosewater for maximum hydration. One of the things we love about this is that it is 99.30% natural and 24.00% organic, so you’re sure about skin safety. Available at Wolf & Badger for $42.
7. Fresh Vitamin Nectar Moisture Glow Face Cream
For all skin types, here is a recommendation from PopSugar: Fresh Vitamin Nectar Moisture Glow Face Cream. This rehydrating moisturizer is packed with a complex of vitamins C, E and B5, lemon and orange fruit extracts and revitalizing minerals that bring back your natural glow. The secret is glucosyl hesperidin, a naturally derived flavonoid from citrus fruits that makes skin glow naturally. Available at Nordstrom for $42.
8. Biossance Squalane + Probiotic Gel Moisturizer
Think of this gel moisturizer as a rebuilder, as it reduces the effects of daytime stressors. When you think of gel, you may automatically think of weight, but this moisturizer has a weightless, ultra-hydrating formula. It contains probiotics to support natural epidermal growth, the production of essential proteins and enzymes, and skin barrier function. It also contains red seaweed to revitalize stressed skin and provide protection, while ginger extract reduces redness. It also contains Swiss Garden Cress Sprouts, a source of the antioxidant called sulforaphane. Try the benefits of this probiotic gel moisturizer at Sephora for $52.
9. Pixi by Petra Glow Tonic
Recommended by Marie Claire, this brightening toner contains aloe vera, ginseng, and botanical extract for a natural glow. This highly concentrated tonic also has glycolic acid that exfoliates and purifies. Best used in the morning and evening, after cleansing your face. Follow it up with your favorite serum or moisturizer. Available at Dermstore for $29.
10. Glossier Invisible Shield
It’s undeniable how important sunscreen is in fighting aging and skin damage. So for those who have trouble wearing sunscreen or dislike the icky feeling that it brings, try Glossier Invisible Shield, which has a silky texture that instantly disappears, leaving no traces or heavy feeling on your skin. It features a clear watergel formula with active microcapsules. That’s why it’s so easy to absorb and leaves zero residue. Available at Glossier for $25.
