The beginning of a new year always implies a moment of personal reflection on the past year… In the world of dermocosmetics there is also room for reflection! Every year, brands reinvent themselves, discover new ingredients and launch new products to provide an increasingly effective response to each one of us skin concerns. Just keep reading and get to know, brand by brand, the best new skincare products launched in 2020.
In a universe as big (and fascinating, allow us the comment) as the dermocosmetics one, the launch of new products can be overwhelming for those who are already lost in the infinity of options that exist in the market. In order to make this “puzzle” a little easier, we reflected on the 2020 launches and selected those that most excited us in terms of efficiency and innovation.
If you have seen a new product and want to know if it would be a good option for your skincare routine or if you simply want to be aware of the latest news in the world of dermocosmetics, you can count on us.
2020 was an intense year for Caudalie. In addition to having completely reformulated one of its most important lines, the Resveratrol Lift line, Caudalie launched two new products that deserve the spotlight.
Caudalie Vinoperfect dark spot correcting moisturizer came to complete the Vinoperfect family and fill a need that has long been lacking in this line. A moisturizing day care that continues the anti-dark spots action of the Vinoperfect serum and night cream. Enriched with Viniferin and Niacinamide, this moisturizer is effective in correcting and preventing all types of dark spots (age spots, sun spots, acne scars, brown spots and pregnancy cloth). In addition, it acts as an immediate enhancer of the skin tone that gives instant luminosity and evens out the complexion.
But Caudalie news are not exclusive to the face ranges. Caudalie also innovated in body care with the launch of Vinosculpt. A body cream with lifting and firming action for the most “problematic” areas of the body: arms, chest, abdominal area and buttocks. Thinking of these areas where the sagging of the skin is more noticeable, Caudalie has developed a true SPA experience. In a very light “whipped cream” texture and with an aroma of fresh and botanical notes. This cream envelops the skin in a feeling of comfort and hydration, essential in the skin’s elasticity. The best news? A formula so natural that it is suitable even for pregnant women!
This is just a blog article. But if it were an Oscar ceremony, we are sure that La Roche-Posay would win the golden statue in the “Best Serums 2020” category. Two star launches, super innovative, in a brand already so complete. Well done!
Formulated with pure Retinol and Retinol palmitate, Retinol B3 serum is the effective and safe anti-aging solution for sensitive skin and for skin that is starting to use retinol. Thanks to its renewing, smoothing and moisturizing action, this serum treats signs of skin photoaging. Such as deep wrinkles and uneven skin tone and texture. Until now, sensitive skins lived in a dilemma. On the one hand, as a result of their fragility, they were experiencing premature skin aging. However, they often could not resort to the use of effective anti-aging ingredients, such as retinol, as they are too sensitive. With this new serum, La Roche-Posay has made the benefits of retinol accessible to all skin types. All the benefits without the skin subject itself to some unwanted effects, such as redness, peeling or irritation. A launch that went directly to our top favorites!
Acne on adult skin is a reality that became even more present in 2020 with the daily use of individual protection masks. The Effaclar ultra concentrated serum, by La Roche-Posay, was designed for the needs of adult oily skin prone to imperfections. Therefore, it is not limited to eliminating imperfections, reducing open pores and regulating sebum production. Also acting on signs of age, such as fine lines and wrinkles. This 2-in-1 action is possible thanks to the formulation with 6 acids: Salicylic Acid, LHA, Glycolic Acid, Hepes, Citric Acid and Phytic Acid. We must not forget, however, that La Roche-Posay is the brand par excellence for sensitive skin. In this sense, this care is also formulated with Niacinamide and Vichy Thermal Water. To reinforce the skin barrier and combat skin irritation and discomfort.
With this serum, adult skins prone to acne no longer have to choose between an anti-aging action and a purifying action. This launch was accompanied by a new Effaclar cleansing gel: the Micropeeling purifying gel. Indicated for severe imperfections and pigmentation marks, either on the face or body. This new Effaclar cleansing care intensively purifies the skin, unclogs pores and removes excess sebum. This is the answer that skins with severe acne on the face and body were looking for.
Once again Nuxe reinvents itself in a new interpretation of its two cult products. As a consequence, it wins us over again and guarantees a place in the best new skincare products launched in 2020.
Prodigieux Absolu de Parfum is inspired by the mythical fragrance of the Prodigieux perfume and the cult texture of the Huile Prodigieuse to create a new prodigious experience. Twice as concentrated as an Eau de Parfum, the 30ml Prodigieux Absolu de Parfum are enough to wrap the skin in a mantle and sensuality for a long time. As a result, an intense fragrance and an innovative localized application system. The perfect motto for a refined experience.
2020 was a year full of new launches to Vichy. Hydration, anti-aging, specific care for mature skins, anti-dark spots… New products were introduced and all of them addressed to different skin issues, problems and needs. For us, these are the best new skincare products launched in 2020 by Vichy.
To say that the Mineral 89 booster is one of Vichy’s most wanted and appreciated products doesn’t surprise anyone. Now imagine all the benefits of Mineral 89 in a tissue mask that provides immediate results… Spectacular, right? Tired, stressed and dehydrated skin, your solution is here! A single-use mask that takes just 10 minutes to do its magic. Which is like saying: moisturize, plump, soften and revitalize the skin. In addition, it comes in an innovative 2-compartment system. That allows us to have total power over the quality of the mask. Count to 3: mix, apply, glowing skin.
The game changer in the anti-aging gestures:
With a record concentration of 1.5% Hyaluronic Acid of double molecular weight, the Liftactiv H.A. Epidermic Filler serum is an effective filling, lifting, anti-aging and non-invasive anti-wrinkle solution. A true game changer in anti-aging care, as it guarantees maximum concentration, maximum effectiveness and maximum tolerance. The only anti-aging care that works in the same way, in efficacy and safety, both on the face and on the eye contour. As if all of these points were not positive enough, HA Epidermic Filler manages to restore 100% of the daily epidermal loss of Hyaluronic Acid. In 6 weeks, less wrinkles, less fine lines, more tone.
Formulated with fortifying calcium, beeswax and shea butter. Neovadiol Rose Platinium night cream has all the essential ingredients to restore firmness and elasticity to more mature skin. A moisturizing care that acts during the night so that aged skin wakes up with vitality, comfort and a natural and healthy pink tone. What about the pillow marks when you wake up? They don’t exist anymore! More than a global anti-aging action, Neovadiol Rose Platinium is concerned with restoring comfort, youthfulness and well-being to mature post-menopausal skin.
We dare to say that this was “The” launch of the brand in 2020 and there is no one who doesn’t want to get their hands on it. So, directly to our best new skincare products launched in 2020 list: the limited edition of the SteamPod 3.0.
In a deep and elegant black, this limited edition is inspired by the icon of elegance and luxury Karl Lagerfeld, Chanel’s creative director. So, the third generation of steam stylers has a thinner and lighter design, an integrated watertank and constant steam flow. From smooth to wavy, it allows a simpler, faster, more effective and less damaging hair styling. “Elegance is an attitude”. And SteamPod x Karl Lagerfeld brings together both attitude and elegance in an increasingly effective steam styler.
Tonic lotions returned in 2020 to claim their rightful place in skin care routines. Recognizing the importance of this step in the skincare routine, Collistar launched the Glycolic Acid Peeling Lotion.
Developed for skins with dark spots, enlarged pores and lack of luminosity, this lotion is formulated with an exfoliating complex that includes glycolic acid, lactobionic acid, mandelic acid and gluconic acid. As a result, it reduces the appearance of fine lines and dark spots, improves the texture of the skin, evens out the complexion, minimizes open pores and micro-imperfections and enhances cell renewal. It also works as a skin preparer, as it makes it more receptive to the treatments that follow. The only negative point? It is not suitable for sensitive, reactive or red skin.
Lift HD is the signature of Collistar’s pioneering global anti-aging solution consisting of 3 specialties: face and neck cream; eye and lip contour; and night cream-mask. With an immediate non-surgical tensor effect, Lift HD restores the volume and contours of the face, while visibly reducing wrinkles in size and depth. A line of exceptional effectiveness and with immediate effect, thanks to its formulation with Tens-Activ, which gives an instant tensor effect. And also with the Lift HD complex, an exclusive anti-aging ingredient that stimulates the synthesis of collagen and elastin and reinforces the fibroblast production.
The Korean brand maintains the innovative spirit and continues to launch products and new lines of success. So it was inevitable for Erborian to be part of our best new skincare products launched in 2020. We cannot deny that facial masks have been one of Erborian’s big bets. And we couldn’t fail to leave a small note of appreciation for the launch of the Milk & Peel “new skin” effect mask and the revitalizing Yuza mask. But the year 2020 brought two launches that immediately jumped into our must-have list.
Ginseng Royal Supreme Gold Mask is Erborian’s first peel-off mask that has added a moment of glamour to anti-aging routines. With immediate tightening and illuminating action, this mask provides a precious rejuvenating action to the skin, acting on the signs of age. Red Ginseng Complex and Licorice Root Extract are the basis of this exceptional formula with immediate results in the firmness and luminosity of the skin. 15 minutes and the skin changes!
And what is, for us, the most bold launch of the year: the Red Pepper line! That’s right, a line of 2 products in which the star ingredient is nothing less than Red Pepper. And what is the reason for choosing this ingredient so unusual? Red peppers are known to be rich in vitamins C and E, minerals and carotenoids, excellent antioxidants and amazing skin brightening boosters! In the form of gel-cream or mask, the results are undeniable: an unparalleled boost of energy and luminosity for the skin. And yes, we can guarantee that it is a very gentle formula for the skin!
Mesoestetic is one of the most renowned brands of dermocosmetics. And it is also the brand that most proves to us how essential it is to innovate, revolutionize and think outside the box. Even when success is already guaranteed. Whether by reformulating products that are already a success or by launching new innovative products, Mesoestetic never disappoints.
In order for its cleansing care to be in accordance with the needs and aggressions to which the skin is subjected these days, Mesoestetic completely reformulated its cleansing line and even arranged a space for a long-awaited super launch. The purpose of this reformulation? Completely transform the skin cleansing moment so that it goes far beyond the cleansing action itself. For this, all new formulations have the combination of two innovative actives: Lactobacillus Ferment and Urban D-tox. The first one enhances the cutaneous barrier function and keeps it in optimal condition; while the second one removes the contaminating particles deposited on the skin and reduces oxidative stress that accelerates skin aging.
Are you ready to meet the new Mesoestetic cleansing range?
- Hydracream Fusion, for dry and sensitive skins. Apply this cream-oil as a mask and the skin is smooth as silk.
- Brightening Foam, for combination, dull and with dark spots skins. A cleansing foam, formulated with glycolic acid and lactic acid. Evens out skin tone, while improving its texture, quality and luminosity.
- Purifying Mousse, for oily skins prone to acne. With chlorhexidine, salicylic acid and lactic acid, this is the product that has undergone the smallest changes. So, the texture remains the same and the formula has now the two new actives with bioequilibrant and anti-contamination function.
- Hydratonic Mist, for all skin types. A tonic moisturizing and skin-enhancing lotion. But now in a misty version for easy application, which eliminates the friction of cotton pads.
- and, finally, the new Micellar Biphasic, also for all skin types. An effective make-up remover, suitable for eyes and lips, which does not cause skin irritation.
And if the reformulation in the cleansing line left us jaw-dropping, this launch proved to us, even more, that in the world of dermocosmetics there are no taboos, nor are limits imposed on what we can do to feel more comfortable in our own skin. Dermamelan Intimate is an intimate depigmenting gel to lighten darkened areas of the genital, perianal, groin and inner thigh areas. Roll out the red carpet! Because whenever dermocosmetics breaks down barriers, the moment must be of celebration.
So, now that you are aware of the best new skincare products launched in 2020, you can improve your routine and surrender to the effectiveness of these new launches.
