There is no stoping the skin care market from innovating, pandemic or no pandemic. According to Business of Fashion, skin care is the fastest growing and biggest category in beauty, with 30 percent shares of the global market in 2019. This will grow further this year, as makeup or color cosmetics decrease in sales as wearing masks and face shields continue to be the norm.

Here are our top skin care products that were recently launched:

Guerlain Abeille Royale Eye Repair Serum

This eye repair serum promises to brighten dark circles. Formulated with black bee honey and royal jelly, this pricey eye treatment comes with a nifty 22-karat gold tip applicator. A product that combines the powerful healing effects that with application lifts and tones the area. It stimulates the healing process at every layer of the skin that firms and makes the eye contour area more visibly luminous.

Platinum Rare Haute-Rejuvenation Protocol

This is one the most expensive skin care products that we know of with an almost $2,000 price tag. This potion revatilises and helps support the unique ability of skin to regenerate itself. Dr. Paul Niehans, the late Swiss surgeon who was one of the pioneers of cellular technology, had a vision to create La Praire’s Platinum Rare Haute-Rejuvenation Protocol as an intensive treatment. This would visibly reawaken the skin, helping compensate for the loss and degradation that come with age. It produced astonishing results demonstrated by clinical studies brought about by its unique formula.

Clinique Smart Night Clinical MD Multi-Dimensional Repair Treatment Retinol

Hyaluronic acid combined with squalane boost the skin’s hyrdation while you sleep. This repair treatment flattens out fine lines with the inherent powers of retinol. Retinol at .3 percent sinks into the skin to help speed up cell turnover that visibly reduces fine lines and wrinkles. As a result, the skin’s tone looks more even, radiant, and pores look minimized.

Elemis Ultra Smart Pro-Collagen Night Genius

This brand, albeit not available in the Philippines has gained much popularity amongst skin care connoisseurs. It smoothens fine lines and helps iron out wrinkles overnight. It has desert algae and hyaluronic acid to keep skin feeling super hydrated and soft. This revolutionary product leaves skin feeling strengthened, tightened, and more resilient. The decadent cream improves skin firmness and elasticity, making it much smoother.

Dermalogica Neck Fit Contour Serum

This product is filled with firming ingredients to give you a tight, line-free neck. We often just focus on our facial skin, but we need to also take care of our neck skin as we age. The ingredient list includes rye seed extract, which smoothens the skin, and resurrection plant to strengthen the area. It is  applied with the built-in roller bar that also gives a cooling effect.

Chanel Le Lift Lotion

I’ve always been a fan of Chanel’s Le Lift line. The Le Lift Lotion has recently been reformulated to deliver even higher performance. So what’s changed? The lotion now features a magnetic water complex that attracts, binds, and retains water molecules with the skin for long lasting hydration. The star ingredient of this lotion is the botanical Alfalfa concentrate, which is rich in minerals, and amino acids that offer antioxidant and anti-aging benefits. Moreover, it stimulates collagen.
