We’re barely a week into 2021, and there are already a couple dozen new skincare products hitting store shelves that we NEED to talk about.
As usual, I’ve cherry-picked only the best—so either we got lucky with so many great formulas this month, or beauty companies are getting smarter about creating what we really want to use. I’m talking about:
- A multi-purpose highlighting serum with brightening niacinamide and a glowy finish
- Two next-gen vitamin C serums to target dullness and discolourations
- Anti-aging eye treatments with retinol, peptides and ceramides
- Multiple gel moisturizers for oil-free and silicone-free hydration
- And lots more!
Here’s your update on all the skincare worth adding to your wish list right now.

The Best New Skincare Products of January 2021
Best New Niacinamide Serum: Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Niacinamide Dew Drops
Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Niacinamide Dew Drops is an innovative cross between a serum and a highlighter. As a serum, it brightens and hydrates with niacinamide, watermelon extract and hyaluronic acid. But you can also use it as an illuminating primer or highlighter (or mix it with foundation) to create an instant dewy glow. It has a gel texture, is free of silicones, and contains less than 1% synthetic fragrance.
Best New Vitamin C Serum: Youth To The People 15% Vitamin C + Clean Caffeine Energy Serum
Youth To The People 15% Vitamin C + Clean Caffeine Energy Serum is a fragrance-free and silicone-free serum with brightening and firming benefits. The 15% vitamin C is comprised of three potent yet non-irritating derivatives: ethyl ascorbic acid, tetrahhexydecyl ascorbate and magnesium ascorbyl phosphate. There’s also caffeine to reduce puffiness, and glycerin, squalane and hyaluronic acid for light hydration.
