From INNBeauty Project to Tower 28 Beauty: 16 of the Best New Skincare Products Launching in May

Serums, sunscreens and more.
New skincare May 2022

Summer is fast approaching, and May’s new skincare products are here to help get our complexions ready for warmer weather. That means sunscreen, of course—and there are several new arrivals you need to know about—but that’s not all.

There’s also a new retinol treatment that should be on your radar. It targets all kinds of skin concerns (from wrinkles to pores) but in a gentle way, without irritation. Plus I’m excited for the new serum version of one of my favourite face mists. It’s made with only a few ingredients, and fights both bacteria and inflammation.

Ready to see my top picks from the latest launches? Read on.
