dry skin? We don’t know her.
Late fall and early winter is a dreamland for refreshment lovers. Not only do we delve into our stockpile of “winter” creams and lotions, but emails and messages from brands announcing the release of tempting thick creams and lightweight gels crowd our feeds and inboxes, tempting us to grow our collection of hydrating champs.
With each moisturizer promising the ultimate in hydration, and with new skincare brands launching monthly, it’s becoming a little more difficult than it used to be to decipher which launches are worth our coins. Below, we highlight the four best moisturizers recently launched to make it easier for you to decide which one best suits your skin concerns.
Let’s get into it!
Aquiwell Licorice Essential Balancing Cream
Best for: hyperpigmentation
Acwell fans are sure to be delighted with the latest addition to the fan-favorite licorice drink line. Launched in late December, this silky cream delivers hydration with a gentle, soothing blend of glycerin, cica, and mugwort, which also makes it a great remedy for winter irritation.
Much like its licorice line siblings, Licorice pH Balancing Essential Cream really shines when it comes to its hyperpigmentation benefits. With 60% licorice root water and licorice root extract, this cream targets melanin production so acne scars, dark spots and hyperpigmentation fade with consistent use! Did we mention that its formula also contains the brightening niacinamide?
This moisturizer is a great choice for anyone looking to even and brighten their complexion during the cold winter months!
Then I met you Rich Skin Renewal Cream
Best for: anti-aging
If she had the launch of I Met You, you know it would be good. *The jeong-based skincare line spends years on its formulas, which are often innovative and in their own entire lane (*ahem* the texture is similar to a living cleansing balm sherbet).
Launched just before Thanksgiving, Renewing Rich Beauty Cream follows the then-I Met You tradition of purposeful, effective skincare with highly thoughtful formulations. Pursuing a three-dimensional hydration approach, this hydrating cream dream contains a blend of emollients, emollients and occlusives to fully nourish the skin.
However, it’s the product’s focus on Quad Ginseng Complex that truly makes this cream a step above the rest when it comes to anti-aging. Steamed and dried 9 times, this complex delivers free radical-fighting antioxidants that visibly improve the appearance of lines, boost moisture and enhance elasticity.
Neogen Dermalogy Cica Snail Repair Cream
Best for: Allergies
The snail is a staple in the Korean beauty world. The ingredient works well with all skin types and is pretty much a one-stop shop – it hydrates, gently exfoliates, fights aging, brightens and calms. Therefore, it only makes sense that skincare enthusiasts would want to have it in their moisturizer.
Neogen’s newest hydrating cream, Dermalogy Cica Repair Snail Cream pairs 88% of snail mucin with cica, a healing and soothing mainstay. In this formula, the hydrating properties of snail mucin really shine through, helping the skin to hold onto moisture and promoting a healthier barrier!
I’m from Vitamin Tree Water Gel Cream
Best for: acne
Hydrating moisturizers don’t always need to be luxuriously thick – I’m From Vitamin Tree Water Gel Cream is a great example of that!
Cooling jelly cream highlights the antioxidant and hydrating properties of hippo rhamnoides fruit extract and sea buckthorn berry extract. One of Kourtney Kardashian’s favorite ingredients, sea buckthorn berries are a great source of Vitamin C, Vitamin B, and Vitamin E, which means they really work to protect the skin from free radical damage.
This gel cream is a great choice for those looking for a little cooling protection!
