When it comes to how much your skin is affected by weather, fall temperatures are as close to perfect as you can get. It’s not too hot or humid like the summer, but it’s also not yet cold and drying out there. Still, that doesn’t mean you should ignore your skin – now is the time it needs to recover from the extra sunshine and heat it had over the last few months, and it also needs to prepare for the cold winter months. It’s the perfect time to restore and protect!
Since fall is like a new beginning for everyone, there are lots of new skincare products out there that promise to do everything from help get rid of acne to making your skin smooth and silky. There are so many things that finding what’s right for you can be really hard! So, I tested out a bunch of new options from some of our favorite brands. There’s something for everyone at every price range. Get ready to shop, because here are 28 new skincare products every girl needs for fall:
1. Bath and Body Works Pumpkin Spice Lotion
Fall’s biggest scent is obviously pumpkin spice, and since lotion is so important for cooler weather, it makes sense to get your fill in lotion form. Bath and Body Works is offering this delicious Cinnamon Pumpkin Lotion, which makes your skin so soft and also smells good that it will literally make you hungry.
Bath and Body Works Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin Lotion, $12.50, Bath and Body Works
2. Yes To Brightening Peel
Summer keeps your skin glowing, but fall doesn’t really have that perk. So, fake a glow with a brightening peel like this one from Yes To Carrots. The grapefruit scent is so refreshing, which is why I recommend using it in the morning to wake yourself up.
Yes To Pore Perfection Brightening Peel, $15.99, Yes To Carrots
3. Peter Thomas Roth Acne-Clear Dots
Peter Thomas Roth is a pricey brand, but they have really amazing products. If you struggle with sensitive skin, it may be worth the splurge! These acne-clear dots are amazing if you get pimples that pop up once in a while. Place one of these tiny little dots on the blemish, wait at least 8 hours, and then take it off.
Peter Thomas Roth Acne-Clear Invisible Dots, $30, Sephora
4. Promise Organic Coconut Milk Facial Cleanser
I love facial washes that smell good, and this one definitely does. I have the cleanser made with papaya, and it makes my face smell like a tropical island, which is always nice. This is also really hydrating and cleansing without being irritating. You always need a good face wash, and this is a great, affordable option.
Promise Organic Nourishing Coconut Milk Facial Cleanser, $7.99, CVS
5. Soul Sunday Unicorn Oil
Honestly, the thing that first attracted me to this was that it’s called unicorn oil. That alone makes me love the product. But this is a great item to have even without the perfect name. It’s an aromatherapy oil that you can apply to your temples, pulse points, or third eye for stress and tension relief. It sounds weird, but it’s actually so soothing to use when you’ve had a long day.
Soul Sunday Unicorn Oil, $18, Urban Outfitters
6. Neutrogena Cleansing Oil
I predict that as the next few months go by, you’ll see more and more cleansing oils out there. This super gentle oil works as a facial cleanser and makeup remover. It will leave you feeling so clean and refreshed. And Neutrogena is so great for acne-prone skin, so don’t be afraid to try it.
Neutrogena Ultra Light Cleansing Gel, $8.99, Ulta
7. Nail Roll-On Wax
Dudes are definitely not the only humans who have to deal with facial hair. Whether you want to get rid of the hair on your upper lip or you want to touch up your brows, this roll-on wax is a great choice. The applicator makes it so easy to use, and it’s less painful than going to the wax place.
Nair Ultimate Roll-On Wax, $10.25, Amazon
8. The Body Shop Spa Of The World Sea Salt Scrub
I am so in love with this stuff, guys. It’s from The Body Shop’s new Spa Of Life line, which offers so many luxurious and wonderful products that I wish I could write about all of them. This Dead Sea Salt Scrub is incredibly exfoliating without being too harsh. It’s perfect for fixing rough skin after summer, and making skin smooth through the cold. Use this, then apply a nice lotion for the softest skin ever. This is available in the UK store right now and is hitting the US in a few weeks!
The Body Shop Spa of The World Dead Sea Salt Scrub, The Body Shop UK
9. eos Shaving Cream
If you like to remove body hair by shaving, than I’m sure you like to have a nice shaving cream. I love eos’s shaving cream. It’s so moisturizing and it smells really good instead of smelling like, well, shaving cream.
EOS Shaving Cream in Vanilla Bliss, $3.49, Drugstore.com
10. Tarte Eye Makeup Remover Wipes
Eye makeup remover should be a beauty staple in your bathroom. You should never go to sleep with makeup on! Sometimes wipes are easier to use when you’re feeling lazy. I love these from Tarte. Not only is the packaging really cute, but they also remove makeup easily and don’t leave behind a gross residue.
Tarte Fresh Eyes Maracuja Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover Wipes, $12, Tarte
11. HydroPeptide Spot Correction
Anyone who suffers from acne knows that annoying zits can appear on your face at the worst time. This spot correction treatment is a little pricey, but it also honestly works. If you have stubborn pimples, this is worth it.
HydroPeptide Spot Correction, $38, Nordstrom
12. Soul Sunday Rice Wash
The natural, vegan ingredients in this facial cleanser are perfect for super sensitive skin. It makes a wonderful cleanser, and the glass bottle with the simple design is also just really nice to look at.
Soul Sunday RiceWash Gentle Facial Cleanser, $28, Urban Outfitters
13. Rodial Upper Arm Sculpt
I’m really insecure about my upper arms, and so I love this Rodial stuff. While you won’t be showing off your arms as much as you did in the summer, they’re still there! This firming lotion tightens skin and is really awesome to use if you’re self-conscious about that part of your body.
Rodial Superfit Arm Sculpt, Rodial
14. Skin Laundry Foaming Facial Wash
This cleanser is perfect for acne-prone skin. It’s oil free and includes ingredients and antioxidants that help clear up and prevent acne. The foaming action makes washing your face fun.
Skin Laundry Clarifying Medicated Foaming Facial Wash, $30, Skin Laundry
15. The Body Shop Oils Of Life Revitalising Gel Cream/Moisturizer
Moisturizing your skin is so important no matter what time of the year it is. This cream from The Body Shop’s new Oils Of Life line is made with three seed oils to keep skin hydrated and glowing. It feels amazing and is a must-have for cold, drying weather.
The Body Shop Oils Of Life Intensely Revitalising Gel Cream/Moisturizer, $34, The Body Shop
16. Masque Bar Anti-Blemish Mask
I love mud masks because they look awesome on your face (half the fun of a mask, to be honest) and they really do work. This one by Masque Bar was made with acne in mind. It controls oil, soothes irritated skin, and leaves your face looking clear and smooth. Plus, the packet makes this great for travel.
Masque Bar Anti-Blemish Mud Mask, $9.99, Target
17. Rodial Dragon’s Blood Cleansing Water
Who wouldn’t want a product called Dragon’s Blood? This cleaning water is meant to be applied with a cotton pad to take makeup off your face – it’s not a cleanser. Makeup removal is so important, and this is a great option.
Rodial Dragons Blood Cleansing Water, Rodial
18. Lumene Shine Control Gel
This cream smells like oranges and is so refreshing. It also moisturizes skin, minimizes the appearance of pores, and brightens up your face, while leaving it with a nice matte finish. It’s amazing.
Lumene Bright Now Vitamin C Shine Control, $19.99, Ulta
19. Jurlique Cleanser
This is actually one of my favorite cleansers. I know it’s expensive, but when you find a cleanser that works for your skin, it can be worth the money! This one is so gentle and leaves my skin feeling clean without feeling totally stripped of everything. It foams up, feels nice, and isn’t drying at all.
Jurlique Refining Foaming Cleanser, $55, Jurlique
20. Indie Lee Toner
I had never tried toner before using this, and this one made me question everything. Toner is applied after cleansing and usually before moisturizing. It tightens your skin and helps it look amazing. This one is gentle enough to use all the time.
Indie Lee COQ-10 Toner, $32, Indie Lee
21. Honest Beauty Powder Cleanser
Jessica Alba’s The Honest Company just launched their brand new beauty line, and it is spectacular. One of my favorite things was this powder cleanser, which is so unique. It’s a little packet of powder (it reminds me of sugar packets) that you mix with water and then use to wash your face. It really works, and it’s so great for traveling!
Honest Beauty Refreshingly Clean Powder Cleanser, $22, Honest Beauty
22. eos Hand Lotion
Cool weather can make your skin feel dry and scaley. I can’t go anywhere without hand lotion, and this is one of my favorites. It’s small and so easy to carry around. The smell is nice without being overpowering, and it leaves hands feeling soft and not sticky.
EOS Hand Lotion in Fresh Flowers, $1.69, Drugstore.com
23. Fresh Rose Mask
This mask is a definite splurge, which isn’t for everyone. But if you want to buy a pricey mask, make it this one. Made with real rose petals, this mask is incredibly hydrating. Nothing else makes my skin feel as soft as this mask does. And the special edition bottle is so beautiful!
Fresh Rose Face Mask Special Edition, $62, Fresh
24. Nourish Organic Deodorant Cream
Just because it’s not that hot anymore doesn’t mean you can forget about deodorant! If you’re looking for a more natural option, this is the one to go for. It’s organic, but it still works so great. The lavender mint scent is also perfect.
Nourish Organic Deodorant Cream in Lavender Mint, $7.99, Drugstore.com
25. Foreo Luna
This silicone facial brush was made for girls who have sensitive skin that gives them a lot of trouble. It is super deep cleansing that also reduces aging (something you don’t want to think about but actually should). It’s expensive, but if you’re really invested in your skincare, you should absolutely try it out.
Foreo Luna, $199.00, Sephora
26. DDF Sulfur Mask
Sometimes you just really need a good face mask. This one was made for acne treatment. It gets rid of excess oil while clearing blemishes and pores.
DDF Sulfur Therapeutic Mask For Acne, $45, Ulta
27. Acure Argan Oil Towelettes
I love having body and face towelettes on hand for the days I need to freshen up but don’t have time to take a shower. These argan oil wipes are unscented, which is great if you just want to clean up a bit and feel more refreshed.
Acure Organics Argan Oil Cleansing Towelettes, $6.29, Target
28. Fresh Sugar Lemon Lotion
I can’t stress the importance of moisturizing enough! You need a good lotion for the colder months, and you can’t get much better than this one. It smells incredibly and is so soothing and makes skin so soft. I’m obsessed with it.
Fresh Sugar Lemon Body Lotion, $22.50, Sephora
