New Skincare Releases – What is worth buying?

You know what the hardest part of a low-buy is? You actually can’t just go out and just buy all the things that tickle you’re fancy.

Okay, I should have known that before I declared my Low-Buy 2019 on the blog, and obviously I DID know that, but I didn’t know just how hard it would be! I developed a habit of keeping up with new releases over the last year, a great thing for a beauty blogger, but not exactly great for a low-buy beauty blogger.

 

New Skincare Releases January 2019
New Skincare Releases January 2019

 

So I had to find a creative way to deal with shopping restrictions, preferably while creating new content, because that is the ultimate goal, isn’t it?

Here you go – I present you a new series: “New Skincare Releases – What is worth buying?”.

I won´t commit to a time frame though, just do them whenever I feel I have enough stuff to talk about. This time I kind of misjudged,  so before you press play on the video, get yourself a cup of tea.

Or two.

It is a long one.

 

And here are the products I talk about

First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair BarriAir Cream 30$ for 1.5 oz here

What the brand says:

“A light as air face moisturizer that helps strengthen the skin barrier, balance and provide adaptable hydration for combination, normal and dry skin types.

Ultra Repair BarriAIR Cream contains lipids that bio-mimic the natural composition of the skin barrier, helping to fortify it and maintain it´s healthy state. Triple weight Hyaluronic Acid, a powerful humectant, helps draw external moisture into skin while adaptive hydration technology aids in stimulating the skin´s ability to replenish its internal moisture reserves as needed. Colloidal Oatmeal and antioxidant rich Vitamin E help calm, soothe and condition skin for an allover healthy, glowing complexion. “

 

Important ingredients

  • Ceramides to repair the skins barrier
  • Linoleic Acid to repair skins barrier, great for acneic skin
  • Three different weights of Hyaluronic acid as humectant for different levels of penetration/also Glycerin to help against that sticky feeling
  • Colloidal Oatmeal, which is basically very finely milled oats to hydrate through starches and beta-glucanes as well as anti-inflammatory ingredients and vitamins
  • Licorice Root Extract for brightening
  • Fermented ingredients for antioxidants

 

Who do I think it is suited to?

Acne prone and irritated skin, I think it would be suitable even for oily skin as it doesn´t contain many heavy occlusive in the ingredient list, but I´d have to feel the texture to judge that.

One that I can see working on myself in winter and maybe even in summer as a night cream.

 

Will I purchase?

Not at the moment, but eventually later this year when I am out of my current creams.

 

Kiehls Cannabis Sativa Seed Oil Herbal Concentrate 49$ for 30 ml here

What the brand says:

“Inspired by Kiehl’s apothecary heritage, our calmative facial oil is uniquely formulated for problem skin including skin prone to blemishes, visible redness and discomfort. Formulated with 100% naturally derived* ingredients, including Hemp-Derived Cannabis Sativa Seed Oil and Green Oregano Oil, this lightweight non-comedogenic facial oil helps calm the feeling of stressed skin.”

Helps reduce skin redness, calms and balances hydration, helps strengthen the skins barrier.

 

Important ingredients

  • Cannabis Sativa Seed Oil – THE new ingredient apparently, and no, it will not make you fly, it does not contain CBD. It has a high amount of essential fatty acids, which is great for anti-inflammatory action as well as antioxidant benefits. It is also a lightweight oil, which makes it great for oily skins
  • Green Oregano Oil – It is said to have certain antiviral and antifungal activities, but nothing more than just “said to” claims
  • Vitamin E
  • Other plant oils for fatty acids and linoleic acid
  • Fragrance as part of essential oils which can be irritating (Citral, Citronellol, Geraniol, Linalool, Limonene)

 

Who do I think it is suited to?

Irritated, probably acneic skin types. Oily skins as it seems to be a lightweight blend.

 

Will I purchase?

No. I love my face oils, but I think I will stick to Rosehip and Jojoba Oil blends that work great for my skin and  contain amazing nutrients as well. (This is my current favorite)

 

Ole Henriksen Glow2OH Dark Spot Toner 28$ here

What the brand says

“This potent toner, supercharged with a high concentration of AHAs (glycolic and lactic acids) and witch hazel water, reduces the look of dark spots in as little as 7 days. It also targets fine lines and wrinkles, and smoothes texture. But this powerhouse has a soft side, too. Infused with sandalwood, chamomile and licorice extracts, it’s gentle enough for daily use. Tone post-cleansing for a skin-smoothing boost, and you’ll be perfectly prepped for serum and moisturizer. Plus, with its addictive lemon sugar scent and “it’s working!” tingle, you’ll be hooked from the very first swipe. Reveal a transformed, refined and youthful-looking Ole Glow®!”

 

Important ingredients

  • Glycolic Acid, Lactic Acid, Phytic Acid: AHAs to chemically exfoliate, combat texture and brighten
  • Witch Hazel Water: astringent, makes pores looks smaller
  • Licorice Root Extract: Brightening
  • Fragrance: middle of the ingredient list
  • Alcohol: middle of the ingredient list
  • Linalool, Limonene, Citral: part of essential oils, potentially irritant

 

Who do I think it is suited to?

Hyperpigmentation and skin texture without oilyness or breakouts. Probably better suited to mature skins. I´d be careful if my skin was sensitive though, and using it daily could be a bit much.

 

Will I purchase?

No. I need a BHA in my routine and don’t use AHAs that often, so for the few times a month I want one I will stick to my tried and trusted (and very gentle) pixi Glow Tonic (Review).

 

Murad 4-in-1 Multi-Cleanse 36$ for 5fl.oz here

What the brand says

“A gel-to-oil, makeup-removing cleanser that nourishes with prebiotics to balance skin’s microbiome for healthier-looking skin. This 4-in-1, non-drying formula features an ultra-cleansing peptide to melt makeup, dirt and excess oil, while moisturizing emollients deeply hydrate.”

Premise behind the line is that we destroy our skins microbiom by overcleansing and kill helpful bacteria. Prebiotics offer nourishment for the good bacteria, supporting it for healthier, happier skin.

 

Important ingredients

  • Hemisqualane: emollient, apparently good as breaking down makeup
  • Cyclic peptide: Cleansing peptide that claims to be 300 times more efficient than other surfactants. 300 times more effective claims are a pet peeve of mine, like, how do you measure that? But I haven´t heard anything about that cyclic peptide yet, so I will refrain from further comments before I did more research In the end clean is clean.
  • Prebiotic powder: The selling point of the whole line, meant to nourish the good bacteria on the skin to strengthen and improve the skins microbiom
  • Hyaluronic Acid and other humectants like Xytilol, Urea, amino acids
  • Squalane: emollient

 

Who I think it is suited to?

If you are concerned about your microbiome because of irritated or acneic skin, it is worth trying. If a cleanser is the best way to go or if you should get another product with prebiotics is up to personal preference. I love trying different cleansers, so this one goes on the purchase list. It isn’t available in Germany yet though.

 

Will I purchase?

I love trying different cleansers, so this one goes on the purchase list. It isn’t available in Germany yet though, which gives me time to finish up others I already have open first.

 

Murad Prebiotic 3-in-1 Multi Mist 32$ for 3.4 fl.oz here

What the brand says

“A peptide-rich, hydrating mist that replenishes with prebiotics to balance skin’s microbiome for healthier-looking skin. This 3-in-1 formula features hydrating sugars to moisturize and refresh skin, while a yeast peptide helps lock in hydration. A multi-tasking biopolymer complex primes and sets makeup.”

 

Important ingredients

  • Prebiotic hydrating sugars: promote growth of beneficial bacteria
  • Yeast peptide: humectant
  • Butylene/Pentylene Glycol: Humectants, penetration enhancers
  • Niacinamide: hydrating, soothing, combats hyperpigmentation
  • Zinc: anti-inflammatory, helps with oil control
  • Caffeine: to depuff and tighten
  • Several humectants

 

Who do I think it is suited to

Me! Even without the prebiotics which, again, are the selling point, this would be a very nice face mist combining hydration, niacinamide and zinc for my oily, mature and blemish prone skin. A must try for me once it is available.

 

Will I purchase?

For sure! As soon as its is available in Germany that is, so far it is US only.

 

 

Neutrogena Hydro Boost City Shield Facial Gel Mist 23$ for 3.3 fl.oz here

What the brand says

“Instantly replenish the look of pollution-stressed skin with Neutrogena® Hydro Boost City Shield® Facial Gel Mist.

This lightweight, non-comedogenic facial gel mist contains hyaluronic acid, antioxidants, and botanical extracts that replenish, refresh and hydrate skin on-the-go. It’s also formulated to protect from harmful environmental aggressors while you’re out and about, keeping your skin looking and feeling healthy throughout the day.”

 

Important ingredients

  • Gellan Gum: hydrocolloid that forms “fluid gel” textures
  • Niacinamide: hydrating, soothing, helps against hyperpigmentation
  • Butylene/Propylene Glycol: humectants, penetration enhancer
  • Zinc: anti-inflammatory, oil control
  • Humectants
  • Plant antioxidants
  • Panthenol
  • Aloe vera
  • Alcohol (3rdingredient)
  • Fragrance

 

Who do I think it is suited to

More oily skin types rather than dry skins, for me rather a summer product. I can´t quite get my head around the liquid gel thing, so I would really like to try it simply for that reason.

 

Will I purchase?

Probably, mostly because I want to try the “liquid gel spray” thing – it is the novelty rather than the ingredients that gets me here. It does have a nice blend of ingredients too though, so once it is available in Germany I will try and get my hands on it.

Now please tell me – is this something that you are interested in? And are there any other releases that made it onto your radar?
The list is obviously not complete, and the picks are very much tailored to my personal taste – there is just so much new stuff every month it would be a full time job to keep up.
