Skincare can be tricky, especially when there’s always a new product lining Sephora’s shelves. Not to mention, all the tubs of moisturizer, bottles of serums, and tubes of cleanser look the same after a while.
“You can get into these situations where you want to buy a ton of products, but if your skin is in a good place — if it’s healthy and glowing — you don’t want to overdo your skincare,” Libby Rhee, MD, a board-certified dermatologist in NYC, told The Post. “It’s good to switch up your products about every two months or so, but sometimes if a product is working for you, you roll with it.”
To keep you on-trend with the latest products Sephora has to offer, we rounded up the retailer’s newest skincare bestsellers this January.

Enter the skincare brand that’s making awesome strides in the industry, The Ordinary, namely for its potions of pure ingredients. This water-free serum is formulated with salicylic acid to help combat the effects of acne and blemishes, while also gently exfoliating the skin.
I had the pleasure of trying Biossance‘s Squalane + Copper Peptide Rapid Plumping Serum and, let me tell you, it’s like hydration in a bottle. It contains a trio of hyaluronic acid, polyglutamic acid (PGA) and sugarcane squalane that helps lock in moisture to reverse the effects of dull skin.
Say goodbye to abrasive glow-promising products that irritate your skin and leave an Oompa-Loompa orange cast. Isle of Paradise, made famous for its Self-Tanning Drops, recently launched its Self-Tan Body Serum.
It’s infused with hyaluronic acid to hydrate the skin, along with avocado and grapefruit oils to brighten and boost the skin, many thanks to vitamins A and C.
Kopari‘s products feel like the entire marine ecosystem is migrating from the ocean directly into the palm of your hand. The brand’s body wash is vegan, includes aloe, coconut water and sea kelp, and is especially geared toward dry skin types.
As one of Sephora’s well-treasured skincare formulas packaged in luxe glass bottles, Youth to the People continues to impress — especially with the new Triple Peptide + Cactus Hydrating + Firming Oasis Serum.
Not only does the product double as a face and eye serum (which your pocket will thank you for) but it’s designed to plump the skin to maintain a youthful radiance.
It’s winter, which means one thing and one thing only — it’s time to whip out the body butters. Josie Maran‘s new Intensive Daily Repair Body Butter isn’t only for dry skin, but it’s equally as great for redness, thanks to ingredients like argan oil and medical-grade colloidal oatmeal.
Mario Badescu is one of Sephora’s more affordable brands, but it doesn’t compromise quality. Its new Brightening Eye Serum is less than $25, vegan and designed to help with dark circles and spots, fine lines and wrinkles.
Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare answered our skincare prayers and released its Advanced Retinol + Ferulic Intense Wrinkle Cream, which is already a fan-favorite on Instagram. The hydrating formula, with anti-aging in mind, impressively works on many skin types, too.
Supergoop! isn’t just known for its bestselling face sunscreen. Its newly launched Daily Dose Hydra Ceramide Boost is a skin nourisher worth adding to your cart, especially because its vegan and contains hyaluronic acid — a dreamboat for dry skin.
Truth be told, Laneige‘s products — from its decadent Lip Sleeping Mask to its Hypoallergenic Cica Sleeping Mask — are some of our favorites in the skincare industry.
The brand’s new Sleeping Mask with Squalane is a powerhouse for dry skin, thanks to the formula that features squalane and a probiotics blend.
Tatcha is coveted brand in the industry, so when we had word that the brand released a new exfoliating treatment, that was enough to add it to our wishlists.
Plus, its skin-fortifying ingredients, like niacinamide and fruit AHAs, make it great for an array of skin types, dull skin and those looking to mitigate pores.
Farmacy is one of the most natural-feeling skincare lines I’ve ever tried (just try the brand’s Clean Bee Ultra Gentle Facial Cleanser and Honey-Halo Ultra-Hydrating Ceramide Moisturizer for proof).
The new 10% Niacinamide Night Mask — which is said to “visibly improve skin texture” and “support the skin’s moisture barrier” — is next on my must-try list.
