The Best Skincare Brands To Shop In 2022
There’s nothing more satisfying as finding a product that you truly love. As your skin begins looking plumper, clearer, and all around more vibrant and glowy. With thousands of trending options, it can sometimes be hard to work out which products are actually worth the splurge. So, to save you time and effort, we have curated the essential products to try first from our favourite brands.
Estēe Lauder is a skincare pioneer. Advanced Night Repair launched in 1982—and has since become a staple in our beauty cabinets. In fact, it's credited as the first-ever serum, the first product to use skin-plumping hyaluronic acid, and the first product to recognise and repair the link between DNA-damaged skin and agieng skin.
Nobody does glowy, bright skin quite like Ole Henriksen. The hero product, Truth Serum, rely on active ingredients like vitamin C and collagen to lift dark spots and plump skin. Results are often instant and only get better over time.
Drunk Elephant is a skincare powerhouse that combines natural ingredients with products that deliver results. The Sukari Babyfacial chemical peel is a must-have for anyone with acne-prone skin, dark spots, or fine lines.
If glowy, dewy skin is what you're after—then Japanese-and-American brand Tatcha is for you. Inspired by the beauty secrets of geishas, Tatcha's line of cleansers, creams, and serums is centered around three ingredients: green tea, rice, and algae. The line is gentle enough for sensitive skin and pregnancy, natural, and effective. We love their dewy products, especially their celebrity coveted Dewy Skin Cream.
Caudalie is a French skincare brand that relies on grape extracts from the regions of Bordeaux, Champagne, and Burgundy. Red wine drinkers already know this to be true: grapes are high in antioxidants and compounds resveratrol and polyphenols, which give the entire line its unique and effective anti-agieng philosophy.
Clinique's pale yellow moisturiser is instantly recognisable and is touted as one of the best skincare products of all time. The brand prides itself in not just creating effective and accessible products for all skin types, but also in making sure those products are easy to use as part of an entire skin-perfecting routine.
Peter Thomas Roth
There are few brands that cover a wide range of skincare concerns as successfully as Peter Thomas Roth. From acne to anti-agieng, you’d be hard-pressed to find a product that won’t work for your skin. And for anyone looking to quench dry skin, look no further than the aptly named “Water Drench” hyaluronic acid line.
With over 140 years creating skincare, this Japanese brand, have hundreds of products that have become hits with beauty enthusiasts all over the world. It's hard to choose a favourite, but if you're going to splurge on just one product from the brand, try the Pure Retinol Express Smoothing Eye Masks are a must.
Dermalogica was founded in 1986 by an aesthetician who couldn't find effective products made without common irritants that might clog pores. Today, it’s one of the most recommended brands by skin professionals. There are products for every skin type or concern, like Special Cleansing Gel, which gently cleanses without compromising the skin's barrier.
French brand Clarins has creams, serums, self-tanners, and makeup for every age, skin type, and texture. But when we think Clarins, Double Serum comes to mind, which houses two anti-aging plant extracts separately in one tube. This makes the active ingredients more effective in theory and practice—bottles of the skin-firming formula have been flying off the shelves for years.
What do Oprah Winfrey, Liv Tyler, Jennifer Aniston, Charlize Theron, Ashley Judd, Heidi Klum, Kylie Jenner, and Brad Pitt all have in common?
Mario Badescu skincare, which has been around for over 50 years but continues to find loyal fans. The facial sprays are a cult favorite, but anyone who experiences breakouts should try the Drying Lotion. A single dot (applied with a cotton swab) will make an angry spot shrink dramatically.
