With new resolutions and fresh starts, there are many reasons to look forward to January. But as a skincare enthusiast, I’m particularly excited for all the NEW drugstore skincare products making their debut in 2018!
Today I’ve got the scoop on all the latest & greatest drugstore skincare launches for 2018 and frankly, there are so many cool new products hitting the shelves right now, it was hard to narrow it down!
From an instant glow-boosting mask to a lazy-girl self-tanner with skincare benefits and compact cleansing sticks (and everything in between), here are 27 brand new drugstore skincare products that are well worth getting your hands on!
This new intensive anti-ager not only fights wrinkles but also helps repair and strengthen the skin barrier. Inspired by ancient chinese medicine, it’s formulated with Pro-retinol and Centella Asiatica (Tiger Grass). Legend has it that tigers rolled against this unique herb to help their skin recover from battles!
2. Pixi Rose Tonic ($15)
Naturally soothing and rich in hydrating nutrients, this alcohol-free rose based toner helps to tone and minimize redness while calming skin. It rehydrates, refreshes and gently removes any impurities.
This indulgent, gel-like scrub is made of 3 pure sugars (white, blonde and brown) and enhanced with real Kiwi seeds to deeply yet gently exfoliate and unclog pores. And it has a refreshing kiwi fruit scent!
L’Oreal Pure Sugar Scrub lineup includes 2 more options to deliver specific skin benefits. Smooth & Glow offers a slightly coarser exfoliation to visibly smooth and perk up dull skin while Nourish & Soften makes dry skin feel soft and supple. Choose your favorite, or experiment with all three!
These mess-free cleansing sticks couldn’t be more convenient! Just rub over your wet skin, and massage into a lather before rinsing. Each of the three formulas (hydrating, detoxifying, and glow-enhancing) are made with a creamy coconut oil base. Plus, their compact size makes them great for travel.
5. ELF Primer Sheet Mask ($2)
Primer + sheet mask in one? Count me curious! Elf’s latest sheet-mask offering not only promises to minimize the appearance of pores, and brighten skin, but also prep skin for makeup application. Infused with Vitamin C and Hyaluronic Acid, it seems like a nice option for using before a special occasion for radiant looking skin!
This facial mist lightly hydrates leaving skin feeling soothed & refreshed…great for whenever your skin needs a quick boost of refreshment! Made without parabens, dyes, silicones, the formula is suitable for sensitive skin.
Formulated with coffee to energize and coconut for moisture, this on-the-go cleansing stick washes away dirt and grime quickly while also exfoliating for instant smoothness. Apply generously onto wet skin and massage with hands to create a milky lather, that cleanses gently without leaving skin dried out.
8. ELF Sunkissed Booster Drops ($10)
These lightweight sunless tanner drops make it easy to get your glow on even in winter! Infused with Vitamin E and Argan Oil to keep skin hydrated, these concentrated drops can be used alone or added into any foundation, liquid, or cream for a buildable sun-kissed glow.
9. Dove DermaSeries Replenishing Face Cream SPF 15 ($10.99)
Combining AminoSilk complex with a high level of moisturizers, this new face cream by Dove is clinically proven to nourish and soothe extremely dry skin. The formula is fragrance-free and also has SPF 15, offering essential UV protection.
And for those pesky dry spots that need heavy-hitting hydration — like elbows, knees, heels — the new Dove Dermaseries dry skin relief balm does the trick. The thick consistency locks in mega-moisture, without feeling greasy. Plus, the fragrance-free formula is suitable even for eczema prone skin.
10. L’Oreal Paris Pure-Clay Mask Clarify & Smooth ($9.49)
The latest addition to L’Oreal’s range of clay-mud masks, this creamy bright yellow mask is designed for rough, uneven skin. It’s formulated with 3 Pure Clays: Kaolin Clay, Montmorillonite Clay and Moroccan Lava Clay and enhanced with Yuzu Lemon extract to exfoliate and draw out impurities, dirt, and pollution.
11. Burt’s Bees Overnight Intensive Lip Treatment ($8.99)
Formulated to intensely hydrate your lips while you sleep, this 100% natural formula is packed with ceramides, natural emollients and oils. Plus, thanks to those ceramides, you get a little fine line-repairing action! Apply generously before bedtime and wake up to soft and supple lips!
Formulated specially for normal to oily skin, this new face lotion moisturizes with a matte finish. The formula is infused with Ceramides 1,3 and 6-II to help repair skin’s protective barrier and lock in moisture all day.
Formulated with the goodness of Vitamin C and grapefruit, this creamy mask stick is designed to perk up dull, lackluster skin quickly, even when you’re on-the-go. Just swipe the formula on dry or wet skin and get glowing skin in 5 minutes!
14. RoC Retinol Correxion Max Daily Hydration Creme ($21.50)
Retinol is one of the best anti-aging ingredients, but it can be very drying. Formulated with hyaluronic acid, this new retinol cream reduces wrinkles while also adding line-plumping moisture to leave skin deeply hydrated for 24 hours. And the oil-free formula won’t clog your pores.
This one-step gentle cleanser is formulated to remove your toughest makeup, even waterproof mascara without any harsh rubbing. It also effectively removes trapped dirt and excess oil without leaving behind any greasy residue. Fragrance free and suitable for sensitive skin.
Designed for oily to combination skin, this new face wash gently foams to remove makeup, oil and impurities leaving skin perfectly cleansed and refreshed. It rinses clean with no harsh rubbing or over-drying. The fragrance-free formula is suitable even for sensitive skin types.
Formulated with three essential ceramides, this new micellar water packs a one-two hydrating cleansing punch in one easy step. Not only it cleanses and removes makeup but also leaves your skin feeling soft and well hydrated.
Here’s my CeraVe Hydrating Micellar Water review and how it compares to the new SheaMoisture Daily Hydration micellar water.
18. Bioré Baking Soda Acne Cleansing Foam ($6.49)
Thick and frothy, this foam cleanser contains baking soda to deep-clean pores, plus salicylic acid to treat and control breakouts. And thanks to the airy formula, it leaves your face feeling clean and soft, not stripped. Ideal for combination skin.
19. Differin Daily Deep Cleanser Sensitive Skin Formula ($11.99)
This new deep cleanser for acne-prone skin contains 5% benzoyl peroxide, which is just as effective as the maximum-strength 10%, but is less likely to cause irritation and redness. If your skin gets dry or irritated with regular benzoyl peroxide-spiked washes, this is a must try!
Formulated with Royal Jelly, essential amino acids and Vitamins A & E to nourish, this quick-absorbing gel keeps skin well-hydrated with a healthy glow. The light gel texture is perfect for normal to combination skin. Formulated without parabens, phthalates, or petrolatum.
21. St. Ives Glowing Sheet Mask Apricot ($2.49)
Love St. Ives Apricot scrub? Now the brand has introduced a glow-boosting apricot extract infused sheet mask too! There’s also a new Nourish and Soothe Oatmeal Sheet Mask to comfort dry skin. Made with 100% natural cotton, these sheet masks help revive skin for a fresh glow!
With a luxurious blend of 100% coconut oil, coconut milk and exotic Acacia Senegal, this 2-in-1 primer + moisturizer delivers an instant glow as it prepares skin for smooth makeup application. This definitely seems like a great drugstore primer for dry skin!
23. Burt’s Bees Micellar Cleansing Water ($11.99)
Formulated with Australian White Cypress oil and honey extract, this hydrating micellar water (99.5% natural) gently removes makeup, pore-clogging dirt and oil while nourishing your skin. It’s gentle enough for all skin types and contains no fragrance, parabens, or phthalates.
Burt’s Bees has also introduced new Micellar Cleansing Towelettes ($5.99, 30 count) infused with the goodness of micellar water to gently remove lingering makeup, dirt and oil. The hydrating wipes are also eco-friendly, made from repurposed cotton.
24. Pond’s Hydrating Sheet Masks ($2.50)
Pond’s cold cream is a cult favorite and for good reason! And now the brand is introducing two new hydrating sheet masks – Hydrate + Glow and Hydrate + Firm Sheet Mask — each formulated with super soft eucalyptus-derived fiber sheets.
Hydrate + Glow brightens up dry skin with an exfoliating cocktail of papaya extract, plus nourishing vitamins B3 and E for a dewy fresh glow, while Hydrate + Firm is jam-packed with heavy-hitting hydrators (hyaluronic acid, collagen, and agave extract) to moisturize and plump-up skin.
This lightweight, non-greasy face lotion not only protects against harmful UVA/UVB rays but also helps fight smoke and pollution that can lead to early skin aging. The formula is infused with vitamins and powerful anti-aging ingredients, as well as moringa seed and green tea extracts.
An affordable indulgence, this new shower foam comes in 3 luxe scents that instantly awaken your senses! Press the pump to release an airy, foaming lather, which leaves skin feeling clean and smooth.
27. Yes to Cucumber Exfoliating Cleansing Balm ($10.99)
This rich cucumber-oil infused balm with natural exfoliating beads melts on contact, transforming into a milky lather that gently removes makeup while leaving skin smooth and hydrated. The soft exfoliating pad makes application and cleansing even more soothing.
And for dry skin, there’s the new Yes To Coconut Oil Cleansing Balm that helps to remove makeup (even the most stubborn) and leaves skin deliciously clean and moisturized! It comes attached with a reusable coconut-infused natural sponge for a gentle cleanse.
