6 Skin Care Products On Our Radar This Month
The holidays are all about giving to others, but it’s important not to forget to take care of yourself too. Ahead, we’re sharing our picks of the six best skin care products—from the L’Oréal Portfolio of brands—to treat your skin to this month.
#1) CLARISONIC SKIN RENEWING PEEL TREATMENT
In conjunction with the debut of their first-ever exfoliating brush head, Clarisonic developed the Skin Renewing Peel Treatment so your skin’s tone can look its best. This exfoliating gel helps to promote skin surface cell renewal and improve upon texture with the likes of LHA, salicylic acid, and glycolic acid in tow. Your complexion will feel smoother and appear more even.
Editor’s Note: This product is formulated with alpha-hydroxy acids, which can cause skin sensitivity to light. For adequate protection, apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen before going outside and wear protective clothing.

#2) L’ORÉAL PARIS AGE PERFECT HYDRA-NUTRITION ALL-OVER BALM
Are you diligent with moisturizing your face but tend to neglect other areas of your body? Don’t worry—L’Oréal Paris has you covered. The brand’s Age Perfect Hydra-Nutrition All-Over Balm is the perfect product to ensure the skin on your neck, chest, hands, and face remains soft and supple through winter.
#3) LANCÔME ABSOLUE REVITALIZING & BRIGHTENING SOFT CREAM
Formulated with the brand’s signature Grand Rose Extracts, the Absolue Revitalizing & Brightening Soft Cream plumps the skin with moisture. Over time you’ll start to see a reduced appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as a youthful radiance.
#4) GARNIER MICELLAR CLEANSING WATER ALL-IN-1 VALUE SIZE
Is your skin consistently dried out by cleansers, no matter which one you use? Try giving micellar water a chance. Popularized by the French, this ingredient calls upon the capabilities of microscopic molecules—micelles—to trap and remove unwanted impurities, makeup, and excess sebum without drying skin out. The Garnier Micellar Cleansing All-in-1 unleashes the power of micellar technology for skin that feels deeply cleaned and refreshed—no rubbing necessary. What’s more, this already-beloved product now comes in a larger size (23.7 fluid ounces, to be exact) to share all around, or to keep entirely for yourself.
#5) LANCÔME VISIONNAIRE SKIN SOLUTIONS 0.2% RETINOL NIGHT CONCENTRATE
Retinol has been the anti-aging ingredient of the past year. As the main ingredient of the Lancome Visionnaire Skin Solutions 0.2% Retinol Night Concentrate, the formula can even out skin’s tone while targeting visible signs of aging. It’s a lower concentrate of retinol, making it suitable for beginners to build up tolerance to the ingredient. The appearance of fine lines, forehead wrinkles, crow’s feet, and even nasolabial wrinkles can all be addressed over time.
Editor’s Note: Retinol can cause users to experience light sensitivity. Please apply any retinol products solely at night, and take proper protective measures during the day by applying a broad-spectrum sunscreen, wearing protective clothing, seeking shade, and avoiding peak sun hours.
#6) ACNEFREE THERAPEUTIC SULFUR MASK
Formulated with vitamin C, copper, and sulfur, this mask can absorb excess oil on the skin’s surface and unclog pores. Its color-signal technology even allows for the mask to indicate when maximum absorption has been reached by transforming from white to blue. Simply apply an even layer to your face, let dry for approximately 10 minutes, and rinse off.
