We’re officially halfway through the year, and July’s batch of new skincare products couldn't have come at a better time. With restrictions easing up and everyone ready to resume their social lives, our skincare routines could probably use a reboot, too.

- A niacinamide-based moisturizer and serum to control oil while lightly hydrating
- A non-irritating salicylic acid toner that targets breakouts and calms your skin
- A luxe aloe vera gel that soothes and hydrates from head to toe
- An Ayurveda-inspired exfoliating mask with AHAs and enzymes
Read on for all the products worth adding to your wish list.

The Best New Skincare Products of July 2021
Best New Moisturizer: Selfless by Hyram Niacinamide & Maracujá Daily Support Moisturizer
Last month, we covered the first Selfless by Hyram product, a retinol serum, and now there are four more. Selfless by Hyram Niacinamide & Maracujá Daily Support Moisturizer is a lightweight gel-cream moisturizer for normal to oily skin. Not only is it silicone-free and fragrance-free, it’s made with 5% niacinamide to reduce excess oil, minimize pores and strengthen your skin barrier. The 1% maracuja (passion fruit) oil helps soothe and lock in moisture.
Best New Toner: Peach Slices Acne Exfoliating Toner
Peach Slices Acne Exfoliating Toner is a 2% salicylic acid toner to clear and prevent breakouts and balance oil production. Unlike most acne treatments, it’s gentle enough for sensitive skin and is free of alcohol, fragrance and silicone. It also has Centella Asiatica (cica) and allatonin to reduce irritation and redness.
Best New Moisturizer: Dr. Barbara Sturm Aloe Vera Gel
Dr. Barbara Sturm Aloe Vera Gel is a lightweight, soothing and cooling gel moisturizer that you can use on both your face and body. It boasts 90% organic aloe vera juice, plus glycerin, purslane and provitamin B5 (panthenol). You can apply it after sun exposure or hair removal, or even as your go-to all-over hydrator.
Best New Face Mask: Ranavat Flawless Veil Resurfacing Saffron Masque
Ranavat Flawless Veil Resurfacing Saffron Masque is a calming, cooling face mask that gently exfoliates, softens and brightens your skin. Inspired by ancient Ayurvedic rituals, the ingredients include fruit-derived AHAs, papaya enzymes, saffron strands and mango pulp. It has a jelly-like texture, is safe for all skin types, and treatments take just five minutes, once or twice per week.
