Best New Beauty Products


Don’t you just love science? Every year it gets a little easier and less time consuming to have gorgeous, shiny bouncy hair; clear, glowing skin, a flawless, long-lasting mani and more. Here are a few of the best new beauty products you’ll find on drugstore shelves or at your favorite beauty supply store.

1. Help for Thinning Hair

Pantene AgeDefy

The new Age Defy Collection from Pantene has been collecting accolades left and right. Why? The products are formulated with caffeine, niacinamide and panthenol to help your hair look 10 years younger. How? The star of the line, Pantene AgeDefy Advanced Thickening Treatment helps to plump up individual strands to increase the diameter of each hair. It’s the equivalent as if 6,500 strands were added to your head!

Also in the collection are AgeDefy Shampoo and Conditioner. When the three products are used together, you’ll not only see thicker hair, but you’ll have stronger hair, fewer split ends, less frizz, tamed grays, brighter color, and more hydrated hair.

2. Ombré Hair Color at Home

If you color your hair yourself and have wanted to experiment with ombré locks, you no longer have to wait around six months for your roots to grow out! With new L’Oréal Paris Féria Wild Ombré kit you can easily create the gradated look in just one step. The kit comes with a small, stiff plastic brush that you can use to brush on the hair color exactly where you want it, be it a subtle effect just on the ends or a more dramatic V-shape application that goes up a few inches.

Tip: If your hair is shorter, hold the brush vertically for more precise application. If your hair is longer, hold it horizontally.

The L’Oréal Paris Féria Wild Ombré comes in three shade ranges: For light to medium blonde hair; for dark blonde to light brown hair; for medium to dark brown hair.

3. At-Home Gel Nail Kits

Sephora by OPI Gel Nail Kit

If you love the look of a salon manicure but don’t have the time, energy or money to hit the salon on a weekly basis, consider investing in an at-home kit like the Sephora by OPI Gel Shine at-home nail kit. It comes with everything you need to create a long-lasting manicure (up to two weeks!), including the gel polish and LED light to cure it.

4. Quick, Flawless Skin

Olay CC Cream

You’ve heard about BB Creams, but what about a CC cream? It takes the traditional beauty balm cream up a notch with the addition of color and correction. The new Olay Total Effects Tone Correcting CC Cream is a lightly tinted formula with UV protection that also provides long lasting benefits. Its key ingredients include essential glucosamine complex, which helps reduce the appearance of brown spots over time, and niacinamide that hydrates and softens skin.

The new Olay Total Effects Tone Correcting CC Cream is available in three shades, fair to light, light to medium and medium to dark.

5. A Peel That’s Gentle Enough for Every Day

Bliss Incredi-peel

Peels are amazing in that they reveal softer, brighter, clearer skin nearly instantaneously. But even though they work quickly—some in under 10 minutes—it’s easy to forget how amazing they are when you don’t always have time to work them into your beauty routine. That’s where the Bliss That’s Incredi-Peel comes in. The peels contain glycolic acid to retexturize and witch hazel and licorice extract to calm skin. What makes the pads “incredi-peel” is the patented time-release technology that creates an over-night facial. This means you get great results with none if the irritation. They’re gentle enough for daily use, even on sensitive skin.
