11 Products to Add to Your Skincare Stash This Fall
It’s a brand new month, which means that new products are making their way onto store websites and shelves and into our medicine cabinets. These are the products Skincare.com’s editors can’t live without this October.

For me, a dream skincare mist is one that hydrates my skin without giving my complexion excess shine. This super luxe option from YSL Beauty strikes just that balance, thanks to hyaluronic acid, jojoba oil and pomegranate extract which work to plump and hydrate the skin. I love spritzing this all over the face before makeup for a refreshing start to my beauty routine.
When the seasons change, my skin gets particularly dry and eczema-prone. To help combat this, I’ve been relying on this luscious in-shower moisturizer that leaves the skin feeling hydrated, supple and soft post-shower. It smells like sweet lavender, and always keeps me from feeling stripped and flaky.

Sometimes my complexion gets a little stressed resulting in some redness. Having this pink tone corrector on hand to neutralize my complexion is exactly what my skin needed. It’s different from other tone correctors in that it doesn’t initially show up pink, but when rubbed in, tone correcting micro-pearls form a corrective halo of light that revive my face.
I love skincare, but the packaging can sometimes skew serious, so the fun, pink aesthetic of this overnight lip mask really caught my eye. The shimmery formula keeps lips looking and feeling supple thanks to nourishing jojoba oil and moisturizing shea butter. Because this is a hybrid balm, you can also dab a little on during the day to rejuvenate lips.

This gentle cream cleanser suits my dry, sensitive skin perfectly. I love that it’s able to remove most of my makeup without leaving my skin feeling tight and dry after I finish washing it off. The non-comedogenic, fragrance-free formula contains amino acids to hydrate as it cleanses.
I’ve always been afraid that toners will strip my skin, but after using this lactic acid-infused formula every day for multiple days in a row, I’ve noticed zero flakiness or irritation. I like it apply it to my face with a cotton pad on days that I wear foundation and watch all the extra makeup and grime my cleanser couldn’t quite trap get swept away

I must admit I’m a sheet mask hoarder — but for good reason! I stay stocked up so I can bring a variety to girls nights-in with my friends, but this new mask from Garnier is one I’ll be keeping for myself. Infused with hyaluronic acid and watermelon extract, it transforms my skin from dry and dull to plumpled, smoothed and hydrated in just five minutes. It’s super handy to have on hand for mornings when I need a last-minute boost before meetings.
Like clockwork, my skin starts to freak out every year as the seasons transition from summer to fall — but this year I stayed one step ahead by incorporating this rich yet lightweight moisturizer into my routine. It’s formulated with a unique combination of manuka honey, cica, peptides and collagen to intensely moisturize, firm and soothe. By the time late September rolls around my nose starts to get flakey, but since I’ve used this moisturizer my skin has stayed smooth, hydrated and happy.

If you know me, then you know I’m a huge fan of glycolic acid. The powerhouse alpha-hydroxy-acid exfoliates the skin to improve uneven texture and target large pores, both of which are major skincare concerns of mine. This two-in-one formula combines the benefits of an exfoliating peel with a caring blend of botanical oils for baby-soft skin that looks (and feels!) like you paid for an expensive facial.

When it comes to skin concerns, dark circles are a big one for me. I have hollowness under my eyes making it difficult to conceal blue and purple tones, so anything that claims to add even a bit of brightness to the area is right up my alley. Not only does this eye cream contain blurring pigments that really do create a slightly Photoshopped effect on the under eyes, but I notice that the area looks a bit brighter and feels hydrated for hours after applying it.
I’ve been dealing with stubborn hormonal acne in my chin area and have been looking for a new cleanser with actives like salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide to give my skin a deep clean and target breakouts. When I heard about this new cleanser formulated with salicylic acid to address acne, it immediately became the first beauty product I’ll be adding to cart this month. Plus, cleansers from the brand have paired beautifully with my skin in the past, so I have a feeling this will be a new go-to for me.
