Best Beauty Products 2022
Let’s start with skincare….
The Inkey List Omega Water Cream ($10.99)
This lightweight gel moisturizer combines an omega fatty acid complex, Glycerin (5%), Betaine (3%), and Niacinamide (5%) that work together to optimize long-lasting hydration and improve skin tone/texture. I love its lightweight, silky texture that feels so soothing and hydrating without any gresiness and the formula is fragrance-free. Full review here.
Kiehls Ultra Facial Overnight Mask with 10.5% Squalane ($45)
This overnight mask provides intense hydration, leaving skin supple and soft. With a balm-to-oil texture, it just melts in when you gently massage onto skin. I just LOVE how moisturizing this mask is and helps keep my dry skin flake-free, nourished and happy! It’s truly a dry winter skin savior. It can also be used as a 15-minute intense nourishing mask. Also, it’s fragrance-free.
Peach & Lily Power Cocktail Lactic Acid Repair Serum ($51)
This exfoliating serum combines 10% lactic acid with 12 natural extracts to actively resurface and repair skin. It also contains ceramides and Hyaluronic Acid complex to hydrate skin. The potent yet gentle formula helps smooth lines, soften skin texture, even skin tone and boost radiance. It’s actually a great dupe for Drunk Elephant Protini Serum
Texture-wise, this serum has a silky lightweight formula that absorbs easily and quickly. There’s no fragrance or essential oils in the formula. This is great for anyone struggling with dullness, hyperpigmentation, uneven skin tone or texture.
Axis-Y Advanced Aqua Boosting Ampoule ($14.99)
This is a hydrating serum formulated with Oligo-Hyaluronic Acid technology that reduces the molecular weight of hyaluronic acid substantially and allows it to be absorbed and reach 10 layers deep into the skin.
Plus, it contains 6 natural ingredients including Centella Asiatica and Madecassoside that soothe irritated skin, and strengthen the skin barrier. It has a silky, lightweight fragrance-free formula that absorbs quickly without a tacky or sticky feel. I love how it provides long-lasting hydration without any heaviness.
Facetory Cloud Velvet Restoring Sleeping Mask ($17.95)
This sleeping mask is packed with ceramides, peptides and probiotics to fortify skin barrier, replenish moisture and improve skin tone & texture. It has a beautiful gel cream texture that just glides on the skin and provides a healthy dose of hydration without a heavy/greasy feel. Also, it’s fragrance-free. Also available at Amazon.com
Biossance Squalane + Omega Repair Deep Hydration Moisturizer ($60)
This is a rich, decadent cream that deeply nourishes, strengthens skin’s moisture barrier and smooths rough texture for dewy, healthy-looking skin. The fragrance-free formula contains ceramides and omega fatty acids, plus Hyaluronic Acid and Squalane to plump and deeply hydrate. It leaves skin radiant with a natural glow without being greasy or shiny.
Solara Suncare Daily Defense Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30 ($25)
Infused with soothing aloe, antioxidant rich green tea and skin barrier supportive Lactobacillus ferment, this is a lightweight mineral sunscreen with Zinc Oxide (19%) for broad-spectrum UVA/UVB protection.
It has an elegant lightweight lotion texture that applies smoothly and quickly melts in with a natural matte finish…no shine or greasiness at all. It doesn’t feel tacky and blends in completely, there’s absolutely NO white cast. It’s oil-free, won’t clog pores and a great option for those with sensitive and acne-prone skin.
Fleur & Bee One Lip Wonder Lip Treatment ($24)
Infused with peptides, plant stem cells, coconut oil and vitamin E, this lip treatment gets to work on dry, chapped lips to instantly hydrate and nourish. It has a buttery-soft formula that feels so good applying and leaves my lips feeling smooth, soft and hydrated with a slightly glossy finish.
IT Cosmetics CC+ Nude Glow SPF 40 ($44)
This is my new holy grail foundation! It is a buildable medium coverage hydrating skin tint with a healthy glow finish. It also contains 2% Niacinamide, green tea extract and Hyaluronic Acid, plus SPF 40 is an added bonus!
I love how lightweight the formula is and feels moisturizing but not at all heavy or greasy. It blends easily with fingers and gives me the perfect medium coverage that looks natural and skin-like! The finish isn’t overly dewy but just perfect to make my complexion look healthy and glowing.
Urban Decay Cosmetics Vice Lip Bond Glossy Liquid Lipstick ($25)
This is a long-lasting liquid lipstick with a glossy finish and highly pigmented color that stays put. The formula is transfer-proof, smudge-proof, and food + water resistant.
The formula feels a bit sticky on the lips but not too tacky and isn’t drying at all. It’s lightweight, comfortable to wear and super long wearing! I love the shade PDA, a deep rose that’s absolutely gorgeous! Check out the swatches here
Valentino Beauty Eye2cheek Blush and Eyeshadow
This is a 2-in-1 cream-to-powder blush and eyeshadow that creates a radiant color finish. It has an amazing color payoff and a little goes a long way! I have the shade Rosso Valentino 05 (red coral rose with light reflecting pearls) It’s so beautiful and the color is very long-lasting.
DIBS Beauty Status Stick ($36)
This oversized highlighting stick for face and body illuminates your favorite features from cheeks, brow bones, Cupid’s bow, collarbones, décolletage to arms and legs. Go straight from the stick, and use your fingers to blend.
It can be applied before foundation for a subtle sheen, or on top for a luminous glow. The buttery formula blends beautifully right on the skin. And I love that it contains nourishing skincare-level ingredients like Shea Butter, Avocado Oil, Jojoba Oil, Niacinamide and Mango Seed Butter.
