There were lots of innovative makeup products launched in 2015, but this was the year that skin care showed that it can be just as interesting as makeup. It was the year that Korean beauty took over and made everyone obsessed with sheet masks. More and more beauty gadgets launched, and the formulas of some of our old favorites like micellar water just kept getting better. We told you our favorite makeup products of 2015, now we have narrowed it down to the skin care products that get our seal of approval.
These are our picks for the best skin care products of 2015:
Jillian Lucas: Garnier Skin Micellar Cleansing Water, $13.15
Jillian was initially unsure about micellar cleansing waters, but she tried one and she is now a convert. She explains, “I was skeptical about ‘water’ cleansers but Liz’s review made me rethink them. This has been a life saver. It takes off all my makeup and tones my skin all at once, without having to worry about an oily reside like a lot of makeup wipes have.”
Heather Cichowski: Foreo LUNA Cleansing for Sensitive/Normal Skin, $199
These are lots of interesting beauty gadgets, but this one has been a favorite of mine since I reviewed it. I tested it back in May, and I have used it every single night since then, and I have yet to need to charge it again. It’s great for cleansing your skin without irritating it. You can adjust the speed of the vibrations for a customized cleanse. Another huge plus is there is no need for replacement brush heads thanks to the silicone design.
Kristyn Filip: Too Cool For School Egg Cream Sheet Mask, $6
Kristyn is a big man of sheet masks, like pretty much everyone else. She says, “SHEET MASKS! I’m sure they were invented prior to 2015, but they came into my life this year, and I am so obsessed with them. My favorite is Too Cool For School’s Egg Cream Mask.”
Elizabeth Licata: Paula’s Choice Resist C15 Super Booster, $48
Vitamin C came into Liz’s life this year and she cannot get enough of it. She states, “I don’t think I tried a new-to-the-world product this year, but for a new-to-me product, it was probably a vitamin C serum. I might be hallucinating, but I think it’s made a real difference.”
