Table of Contents

A good skincare routine is a lot more than just serums, moisturizers, eye creams and sunscreens. While those make up the foundation of a healthy regimen, it’s all the extras that can help you reach complexion perfection. Think lip treatments that pamper your pucker, masks that target every skincare need, toners and essences to prep your skin for the products that follow, exfoliants that reveal a clearer and brighter complexion and cleansers that purify, to name a few. This list of the best skincare launches of 2023 offers all of those options and so much more.

Sisley Paris Supremÿa at Night Anti-Aging Fluid

Cutting-edge science is responsible for this cream-serum hybrid that works with the skin’s natural aging process to turn back the clock with Sisley’s Fundamental Regeneration Complex. Working overnight to repair a loss of firmness and radiance and to smooth lines with plant-based ingredients, it helps skin detox and recover from daily damage. $940, sisley-paris.com

Shani Darden Signature Nourishing Facial Mask

As one of Hollywood’s most in demand estheticians, you know Shani Darden products deliver. That’s certainly the case for her latest launch, a clay-based mask that soaks up excess oil and unclogs pores without stripping skin. It features glycerin and squalane to hydrate, colloidal oatmeal to soothe, kaolin and bentonite clay to zap impurities and a trio of teas—white, green and chamomile—to minimize irritation. $58, sephora.com

An oxygen facial in a bottle, your skin will feel instantly refreshed with just a spritz or two. Clinically proven to double hydration levels in an hour, skin also feels firmer and plumper. The essence-in-mist formula gives a gorgeous glow as well as protection from environmental aggressors thanks to hyaluronic acid and niacinamide. $47, charlottetilbury.com

Riki Miracle LED Acne Patch

You probably know Riki Loves Riki for its influencer-loved mirrors, but now they’re expanding into at-home skincare devices with the very first FDA-cleared Miracle LED Patch. It utilizes blue and red light, at 415nm and 630nm wavelengths, respectively, with six LED bulbs to quickly and gently heal pimples. The biodegradable silicone patch is reusable and also helps prevent future breakouts. $125, rikilovesriki.com

Bubble Morning Rays Brightening Eye Cream

Dark circles, puffiness and dry, tired eyes don’t stand a chance against this brightening eye cream that features vitamin C, turmeric extract and peptides.

The formula is completed with Rosapeptide, Dior Prestige’s signature peptide complex with 99 potent molecules. $800, dior.com

SkinCeuticals A.G.E. Advanced Eye 

Glycation is responsible for several signs of aging, including wrinkles, laxity, crepiness and dullness. The natural process occurs when excess sugars in the body bind to structural proteins, such as collagen, and form damaging byproducts, which are known as advanced glycation end-products (A.G.E.s). This eye cream works to prevent collagen glycation by improving collagen matrix integrity and reversing the negative effects. $116, skinceuticals.com

Bloomeffects Royal Tulip Vitamin C Facial Oil

To deliver the famous brightening effects of vitamin C, it contains 20% active THD Ascorbate, a very stable form that tackles hyperpigmentation without irritation.

It has a similar effect by forming an invisible “liquid patch” over the pimple, working to reduce pimple color in two hours, size in 24 hours and post-acne marks in four weeks. By creating a breathable seal around the breakout, it also protects the sensitive spot from dirt, oil and makeup to speed up the healing process—and prevent picking! The medicated formula includes 2% salicylic acid, 4% niacinamide and 0.2% licorice root. $30, kiehls.com

Drunk Elephant B-Goldi Bright Drops
