2020 was quite the year for skincare with so many new launches and formula upgrades. Everyone got serious about their skincare last year, so I thought it would be helpful to pick out my best skincare products for 2021, to set us all up for the year ahead.

This post includes the best cleansers, exfoliators, eye creams, serums, face creams & moisturisers, facial oils and SPF for face. It’s all here!

Best Skincare Products for 2021 – Cleansers

This is one of my favourite skincare categories. I love a good cleanse!! I have a range of budgets here.

Sisley Triple Oil Balm Makeup Remover & Cleanser – Luxury Option

As far as I am concerned, there is nothing more luxurious in skincare than a really indulgent balm cleanser and this is the most indulgent one I have ever used. It is beautiful.

Sisley Triple Oil Balm Makeup Remover & Cleanser - one of Best Skincare Products in the cleansing category for 2021
Best Skincare Products for 2021 – Sisley Triple Oil Balm Makeup Remover & Cleanser

This balm uses a true skincare formula and it’s as much about nourishing the skin as it is about cleansing. There’s Shea, Babassu and Macadamia oils and Mango Butter to nourish and protect the skin barrier, whilst the oils effortlessly lift away makeup and impurities.

I love the transformative texture of this cleanser. It turns into silky, lightweight oil texture upon application and a super soft milky emulsion when you add water. It rinses away really easily and leaves my skin smooth, hydrated and super clean. It’s such a dream. The downside is that it’s pretty pricey but a little goes a long way if you need a way to justify it! I still have hardly made a dent in it.

DHC Deep Cleansing Oil – Affordable Option

This isn’t a new product by any means (I have been using it for years) but the Japanese DHC brand made a big effort last year to become more visible in the UK skincare market with its launch at Superdrug*.

Best Skincare Products for 2021 DHC Cleansing Oil
Best Skincare Products for 2021 – DHC Cleansing Oil

This cleansing oil is an absolute classic with a simple ingredients list and powerful cleansing action. If you like unfragranced products or have very sensitive skin, this one is for you. It is effective for all types of makeup and deep cleans without leaving any residue on the skin. It basically does what it says on the tin and leaves skin clean, soft and hydrated.

Elemis Pro-Collagen Energising Cleanser – Light Option

I loved this new cleanser from Elemis from the very first time I used it, and every day since, the love has grown. It is one of the best gel cleansers I have ever used.

Elemis Pro Collagen Energising Gel Cleanser - best cleanser 2021
Best Skincare Products 2021 – Elemis Pro Collagen Energising Gel Cleanser

It’s super gentle, delivers a thorough cleanse, is great on its own, as a morning cleanse, or part two of a double cleanse. It’s just fab.

It has a unique gel texture that transforms into a light, creamy lather, but what’s really special is its gentle acid complex of Succinic, Lactic and Ferulic acids. They work on inflammation, enlarged pores, congestion, hyperpigmentation, and lines and wrinkles. Importantly, the ferulic provides a healthy dose of antioxidant protection.

Elemis’ hero Padina Pavonica works to improve hydration. I love the smell and the feel of this on my skin. It is super reviving for your morning cleanse too, and the aroma is perfect for lifting your spirits. It leaves my skin looking fresh, bright and glowy, and it feels softer and smoother to the touch.

CeraVe Hydrating Cream-to-Foam Cleanser – Budget Option

This is the newest cleanser from cult high street skincare brand CeraVe and it’s absolutely lovely.

Cerave Cream to Foam Cleanser - Best Skincare 2021
Best Skincare Products 2021 – Cerave Cream to Foam Cleanser

If you have skin issues such as dermatitis, acne or eczema, this brand is definitely one to check out. This cleanser is designed to deliver the benefits of a double cleanse in one easy step. It works to gently removes oil, dirt, and makeup and uses a combination of ceramides, hyaluronic acid, and gentle, amino-acid based surfactants.

Massaged over wet skin, it creates a lovely creamy lather and feels very gentle. This makes a lovely hydrating and skin softening second cleanse in the evening, or a super gentle first cleanse of the day.

Best Skincare Products for 2021 – Exfoliators

Right here are my best picks of the non-abrasive exfoliators – my favourite kind for glowing skin.

Kiehl’s Daily Refining Milk Peel Toner – instant gratification option

I love this toner so much! It is genuinely one of my favourite launches from Kiehl’s ever. I am big on Kiehl’s so that is really saying something!

Best Beauty Products for 2021 - Kiehl's Daily Refining Milk Peel Toner
Best Skincare Products for 2021 – Kiehl’s Daily Refining Milk Peel Toner

This is such a satisfying product that delivers instant results. If you are working towards ‘glass skin’, you need to check this out. It is all about a super gentle hit of exfoliation, with a major hit of hydration, and it literally makes you glow.

The peel uses a dual-phase formula of Lipo-Hydroxy Acid (a derivative of Salicylic acid) plus Almond Milk and 23% Emollients. You shake it up and together they work to unclogs pores and lift dead skin cells off the surface of the skin, while leaving a gorgeously glowing moisturised finish. This has been a major hit with readers and has worked really well in combination with the Kiehl’s Sativa Seed Cannabis Oil for those with spot prone skin.

NudeSkin 5% Citrus Fruit & Glycolic Glow Toner – the newcomer option

Nudestix launched their first ever skincare collection in 2020, and this is the most active product in the range, and also my favourite.

 Nudestix 5% Citrus Fruit & Glycolic Glow Toner - best exfoliators 2021
Best Skincare Products for 2021 – Nudestix 5% Citrus Fruit & Glycolic Glow Toner

It is designed to brighten and tone, and also promote anti-ageing action. If you love your skin to reflect light and really shine (in a good way) this is the one!

It contains a blend of Glycolic and Citrus Fruit Acids to clarify and brighten, while Hyaluronic Acid plumps and smooths. It’s another one that delivers instant results and I love it before a hydrating mist and serum for ultra glow.

You can buy soon it at:

Drunk Elephant Babyfacial – the big buzz option

The amazing news is that Babyfacial has finally launched in the UK! No more hankering after US trips to get your hands on this skincare icon anymore!!

Drunk Elephant Babyfacial - best exfoliator 2021
Best Skincare Products for 2021 – Drunk Elephant Babyfacial

This a professional quality exfoliating mask that contains a powferful 25% AHA/2% BHA blend with glycolic, tartaric, lactic, citric, and salicylic acids. It also includes chickpea flour, pumpkin ferment plus a soothing antioxidant blend of matcha tea, milk thistle, and apple, which are antioxidant and also gently exfoliating.

There’s also Cactus Extract to calm, Virgin Marula Oil to nourish, Niacinamide (vitamin B3) to work on lines, tone and texture, improve signs of ageing (fine lines, wrinkles, loss of firmness) and Sodium Hyaluronate Crosspolymer (low weight HA alternative) for enhanced hydration. Plus loads more!

Kate Somerville ExfoliKate Intensive – the classic option

This is somewhat of an icon when it comes to exfoliating, and Kate says this is the next best thing to a facial in her clinic!

Kate Somerville ExfoliKate Intensive - best exfoliator 2021
Best Skincare Products for 2021 – Kate Somerville ExfoliKate Intensive

It offers both a physical and chemical exfoliation. Physical exfoliation lifts dead skin cells, and the chemical exfoliation gently dissolves dead skin. The formula clears pores and improves skin texture with a combination of AHA Lactic Acid and BHA Salicylic Acid plus Papaya, Pumpkin, Pineapple Enzymes.

A good dose of Aloe Vera, Honey and Vitamin E  work to soothe and soften skin while Vitamin A and C help to neutralise free radicals and defend against environmental aggressors.

It’s a super quick treatment, it only needs two minutes, and after I use it, all my products sink in beautifully.

Best Skincare Products for 2021 – Eye Creams

I am real believer in having a separate product for your eye care and discovered some very firm favourites in 2020.

Aurelia Brightening Eye Serum – the Probiotic Option

This is a brand new launch from Aurelia and absolutely brilliant. It has been formulated to hydrate, smooth and brighten the delicate eye area.

Aurelia Brightening Eye Serum - best eye cream 2021
Best Skincare Products for 2021 – Aurelia Brightening Eye Serum

It uses probiotics to to calm inflammation and promote collagen production, while Arnica lightens darkness – genius! I’ve always used Arnica on bruises but love how this has been harnessed for eye care.

It really works to illuminate, and the probiotics in the formula also boost collagen to shrink the depth of wrinkles. Plus it’s like a drink of water for the skin.

You can buy it at:

Murad Vita-C Eyes Dark Circle Corrector – the instant effect option

This was another major discovery of 2020 and I know loads of you absolutely loved it too!

Murad Vita C Eyes Dark Circle Corrector - best eye cream 2021
Best Skincare Products for 2021 – Murad Vita C Eyes

Vita-C Eyes is one of those instantly pleasing products because it brightens immediately. This is the result of light-reflecting micro-minerals, but don’t be deterred by this cosmetic element – when it comes to effective skincare and actives, Murad is always very serious.

It uses Gold-Stabilised Vitamin C, which a potent vitamin C that offers enhanced antioxidant protection and increased stability. This is more bio-available and means the skin can absorb practically the full dose of vitamin C with minimal waste of the active ingredient.

This one is fab for brightening and also very hydrating.

Sisley Black Rose Eye Contour Fluid – the lifting option

I love Sisley’s Black Rose range and this eye wand is no disappointment.

Sisley Black Rose Eye Contour Fluid - Best eye cream 2021
Best Skincare Products for 2021 – Sisley Black Rose Eye Contour Fluid

I absolutely love the texture of this serum. It is super lightweight yet intensely hydrating and comfortable. It melts into the skin with a very nourishing feel, yet the consistency is fresh and lightweight like a gel.

The formula uses micropearls to instantly illuminate the eye area and I absolutely love the effect this delivers. Sisley Black Rose Eye Contour Fluid smooths, depuffs, plumps and brightens the area and create the most perfect base for makeup. The ceramic applicator is perfection. I don’t usually care much for things like that, but this is almost addictive because it feels so cooling and sculpting.

It is expensive but everyone I know who has tried it has loved it so far. I save this for daytime use.

La Mer The Eye Concentrate – the super luxe option

Having already been a fan of The Concentrate for face by La Mer, The Eye Concentrate has been a welcome addition to my routine and I love to use this one at night.

Best Eye Creams 2021 - La Mer The Eye Concentrate
Best Skincare Products for 2021 – La Mer The Eye Concentrate

This is an iconic formula but it recently had an upgrade which is always good news. When I first started using it, I wasn’t using the applicator it came with, but having received a bit of advice from La Mer’s education manager on a zoom call, I have incorporated the tool into my regime and now love it even more.

It is excellent for dark circles and also depuffing (especially when used with the applicator). The cream also delivers a serious hit of hydration that is super long lasting. When I use this at night, I wake up with a rested-looking hydrated eye area.

You can buy it at:

I have recently gone extra luxe and have added in The Lifting Eye Serum underneath which I have been loving for firming and a smoother appearance on my eyelids (I really worry about the crepes!).

Best Skincare Products for 2021 – Serums

We all need a good serum in our routines and I tested out a lot last year. These are my favourites.

Strivectin Super C Retinol – the anti-aging option

This is a serum that contains two of my favourite ingredients, Vitamin C AND Retinol. I used it to the very last drop without any sensitivity or reaction to this special combination of active ingredients.

Strivectin Super C Retinol best serum 2021
Best Skincare Products for 2021 – Strivectin Super C Retinol

The vit c is really brightening, the retinol is super smoothing and the formula gives my skin a brilliant and immediate hydration boost. What’s extra special about this is a unique Niacinamide technology – NIA-114 – which builds and protects the skin’s all important barrier. It ensures there’s no irritation or inflammation and helps maintain the skin and allow it to take advantage of the active ingredients with no downtime. It’s excellent.

You can buy it at:

La Mer The Concentrate – the luxe barrier builder

This icon from La Mer got an upgrade this year and now has added pollution protection.

La Mer The Concentrate - best serum 2021
Best Skincare Products 2021 – La Mer The Concentrate

I always want this in my life because the second I have a skin issue, like redness, soreness or an eczema flare up , I use this and it fixes it. It simply works wonders for me.

It is the most amazing barrier strengthening serum, however, I mainly save it for any localised skin problems. I also use a light layer all over if my skin is feeling sensitive due to environmental factors or if an active or facial treatment has caused any kind of reaction. It soothes and calms extremely quickly.

When I have spoken about The Concentrate on social, lots of people have shared stories about how they rely on it for their Eczema, and if they have a burn, and many see it as a bit of a miracle worker.

It is available at:

Aurelia CBD Super Serum + Probiotics – the glow booster

If you love hydrated glow, you will love this serum!

Aurelia CBD Super Serum + Probiotics - best serum 2021
Best Skincare Products for 2021 – Aurelia CBD Super Serum + Probiotics

This formula has a unique blend of hyaluronic acid, CBD and probiotics and is brilliant if you want even and calm looking skin with improved texture and a good dose of glow.

Aurelia’s CBD ingredient is really special because they use pure CBD crystals instead of CBD oil. The CBD is isolated and purified from the female hemp plant, forming crystals, superior to simply using CBD oil which often contains impurities and can be very diluted.

The CBD and probiotic blend is suspended in hyaluronic acid for a massive boost of hydration.

It is available at:

Read the full Aurelia CBD Super Serum + Probiotics review.

Kiehl’s Vital Skin Strengthening Serum – calming option

The serum contains Adaptogens and they are huge in skincare right now. Adaptogens are clever herbs help with the absorption of nutrients and utilisation of oxygen and help the body adapt to what it needs. They are particularly useful in antiaging formulas.

Kiehl's Vital Skin Strengthening Serum - best serum 2021
Best Skincare Products 2021 – Kiehl’s Vital Skin Strengthening Serum

The texture of this serum is so beautiful. It is instantly quenching and soothing and is great for strengthening the skin barrier and promoting resilience, suppleness and plumpness. I love it because you can fit it into any regime and be sure that it won’t clash with any other active ingredients.

It sits really well under under other serums, oils or moisturisers and is just such a pleasure to use.

It is available at:

Best Skincare Products for 2021 – Face Creams

I love a good moisturiser and often find creams the most satisfying part of my routine.

Caudalie Resveratrol Lift Firming Cashmere Cream – lifting option

This cream is lovely in every way – from the texture, to how it makes my skin look and feel and also the packaging.

Caudalie Resveratrol Lift Firming Cashmere Cream - best face cream 2021
Best Skincare Products 2021 – Caudalie Resveratrol Lift Firming Cashmere Cream

This is a great one for putting the bounce back in your skin and boosting that youthful plumpness. The clinical trials Caudalie have done on this are seriously impressive, and the formula has been proven to double the skin’s Hyaluronic Acid and increase collagen production five times. That’s incredible! Plus it has 97% natural ingredients and new green packaging that’s 100% recyclable, as well as really pretty.

It’s a brilliant day cream for anyone worrying about loss of firmness, and it gives a brilliant glow. In fact, the more you work it in, the more glowy it gets.

It is available at:

Kate Somerville DeliKate Recovery Cream – SOS option

This is one of my favourite launches of the year and anyone that loves a super nourishing, gentle cream that gives a major glow will fall in love with this.

Kate Somerville DeliKate Recovery Cream - best skincare products - face cream 2021
Best Skincare Products 2021 – Kate Somerville DeliKate Recovery Cream

If your skin is needing a bit of TLC or it is dry, this is for you. Kate created the DeliKate range for use in her clinic to calm post-peel skin or treat inflamed skin conditions. She says, “It’s a game changer for putting out the fire and calming irritation.”

There is nothing in this that could irritate any skin condition (except maybe cystic acne in which case I’d steer clear) and has the most stunning semi-balmy texture that makes skin look and feel calm and glossy in the best way imaginable. Even if you didn’t have sensitive skin, this cream would be up your street if you love a juicy-looking glow.

It is available at:

Check out the full Kate Somerville DeliKate Recovery Cream review.

FILORGA Lift-Structure Radiance – zoom ready option

This is a major discovery! A hybrid of serious anti-ageing skincare with instant skin perfecting – absolutely perfect for any zoom meetings.

Filorga Lift Structure Radiance - Best face cream skincare products 2021
Best Skincare Productss 2021 – Filorga Lift Structure Radiance

This new formula combines something called Plasmatic Lifting Factors which lift and firm skin in as little as 7 days and also Chroma Youth 3T which instantly smooths out and perfects the skin with a rosy radiant finish. It’s like makeup, but it’s not makeup, it is serious anti-aging skincare.

The formula boosts collagen and Hyaluronic Acid to re-volumise and firm the skin over time and also makes skin look more perfect straight away. Sometimes I use this with a bit of concealer and I am zoom-ready.

It is available at:

Murad Retinol Youth Renewal Night Cream – easy retinol option

If you want to get into retinol, this is an amazing way to start.

Murad Retinol Youth Renewal Night Cream - best night cream 2021
Best Skincare Products 2021 – Murad Retinol Youth Renewal Night Cream

It is buttery and creamy and everything you want in a gentle night cream except it has Dr Murad’s incredible Tri-Active Retinol formula. This is a super effective trio of different types of retinols buffered by gentle hydrating ingredients that make sure you don’t get the dreaded retinol flake.

I remember the first time I ever used this cream, I noticed my skin looked better the very next day.

You can buy it at:

Best Skincare Products for 2021 – Face Oils

Face oils are one of my favourite beauty products and I absolutely love using them.

Augustinus Bader The Face Oil – one step option

I really am I fan of this oil. It has such a beautiful texture.

Augustinus Bader The Face Oil - best skincare products face oil 2021
Best Skincare Products for 2021 – Augustinus Bader The Face Oil

The beauty of this oil is that it has been formulated to be used alone and isn’t technically an add-in product like many other oils. If I want to be basic – and I mean basic in the loosest of terms because this is Augustinus Bader we are talking about here – I just cleanse my face and use this oil.

It’s a one and done and delivers fabulously hydrated, nourished, glowing skin making it one of the simplest and best skincare products launched last year.

It sinks in so beautifully and doesn’t leave the shine that lots of oils do, just a gorgeous healthy glow.

It is available at:

Votary Super Seed Facial Oil – all round skin health option

Another favourite all rounder is this beautiful oil, the Super Seed Facial Oil from British brand Votary.

Votary Super Seed Facial Oil - best face oil 2021
Best Skincare Products for 2021 – Votary Super Seed Facial Oil

It has a blend of 22 super seed oils and includes everything from chia to broccoli to pumpkin to melon to raspberry. It is cold-pressed and blended in the UK in small, fresh batches, so you always know you are getting something super potent.

It’s a beautiful oil for dry, dehydrated or sensitive skin (or absolutely any skin type to be honest) as it’s so light yet it gives the skin a gorgeous glow while it comforts. Love it.

It is available at:

Kiehl’s Cannabis Sativa Seed Oil Herbal Concentrate – purifying option

I touched briefly on this earlier because this oil is amazing for problem skin types and breakouts, and I have heard great things from people with acne prone skin using this in combination with the Kiehl’s Milk Peel mentioned above.

Kiehl’s Cannabis Sativa Seed Oil Herbal Concentrate - best face oil 2021
Best Skincare Products for 2021 – Kiehl’s Cannabis Sativa Seed Oil Herbal Concentrate

It has a really simple ingredients list that comprises Cannabis Sativa Seed Oil derived from cold-pressed Hemp Seeds which helps to improve the skin’s barrier, reduce visible redness, and relieve discomfort. There’s also Green Oregano Oil for its antioxidant and antiseptic soothing properties. It is great for purifying problem skin.

I love it for when my skin is feeling a bit sensitive, or I just want a super light oil to add into my routine for extra glow. It’s so nice to use and delivers calm and nourished skin.

It is available at:

La Mer The Renewal Oil – light as air option

To cheer myself up last year, I went back to one of my favourite beauty products of all time, the Renewal Oil from La Mer. I finished a whole bottle and have cracked open another.

La Mer Renewal Oil - best face oil skincare products for 2021
Best Skincare Products for 2021 – La Mer The Renewal Oil

I first discovered this beautiful oil back in 2016 and have been through quite a few bottles since. I absolutely adore it. The La Mer Renewal Oil has the most sublime texture. It is light as an essence with the nourishing power of the finest oil and it is such a multi-tasker.

It is so calming, soothing, hydrating, smoothing and firming, and it even tackles the patches of eczema I sometimes get on my hairline. It’s the ultimate glow-giver and it’s amazing on the tops of cheekbones or lightly pressed all over the face to bring your makeup back to life.

It is available at:

Best Skincare Products for 2021 – SPF for Face

I use a sunscreen all year round. I tend to use an SPF 50 during the summer months and then a 30 during the winter (unless I have used a treatment that makes skin more vulnerable to UV, then it’s 50 all the way). 

Murad City Skin Age Defense Broad Spectrum SPF 50 – high protection option

This is an excellent high protection facial SPF that doesn’t leave a white caste.

Best SkincareMurad City Skin Age Defense SPF50 - Best Face SPF Skincare Product 2021
Best Skincare Products for 2021 – Murad City Skin Age Defense SPF50

It is a 100% mineral sunscreen that works to protect from UVA, UVB, infrared radiation, blue light from electronic devices, and pollution. There’s also a dose of Vitamin C for glow and a colour corrector to even out skin tone, deliver radiance and ensure that the finish is invisible.

On top of this we have a blend of Argon Oil, Comfrey Extract, and Vitamin E. It’s really love to use and makes me feel confident I am fully protected.

It is available at:

Elizabeth Arden Great 8 SPF 35 –  the super light feel option

Arden’s Great 8 is absolutely perfect because it delivers SPF 35 protection in a light, moisturising formula that sits beautifully under makeup.

It is packed with skincare ingredients and protects against the effects of sunlight, blue light, infrared and pollution. It also hydrates, purifies, brightens and balances.

Sarah Chapman Skinesis Eye Insurance SPF30 – the eye option

I absolutely love this eye SPF because it’s super nourishing, has loads of anti-ageing in it, and it makes everything look instantly better.

BesSarah Chapman Eye Insurance SPF30 best SPF for face skincare product 2021
Best Skincare Products for 2021 – Sarah Chapman Eye Insurance SPF30

The texture is gorgeous. It melts into the skin, instantly smoothing, hydrating and plumping, and just makes everything look a lot more even. The tint element, as with the Skin Insurance, is very well executed.

It has enough coverage and glow to brighten, and perfect, without it looking like you are wearing makeup at all. You just look more awake, brighter and fresher and that delicate eye area is protected. Plus it’s really easy to top up over makeup.

It is available at:

Fenty Skin Hydra Vizor Invisible Moisturizer SPF 30

This is the newest addition to my SPF skincare arsenal and I love it, which I really didn’t expect to. This is Rihanna’s Fenty Skin Moisturiser which comes with an SPF30.

Fenty Skin Hydra Vizor Invisible Moisturizer SPF 30 - best SPF for face skincare products 2021
Best Skincare Products for 2021 – Fenty Skin Hydra Vizor Invisible Moisturizer SPF 30

It has a lovely light formula that blends into the skin easily and gives a gorgeous glow.

Light-as-air, all-day hydration meets universal SPF30 protection. It has a soft pink tint that works on all skin tones and it works to brighten and make pores, texture and lines less noticeable instantly and over time.

I love it under my makeup and it layers really well over all my skincare. It’s a good one! Also it’s refillable!

It is available at:

Best Skincare Products for 2021 – Lip Care

I have been using more balms and less lipstick this year, and I am pretty sure I’m not alone with all the masks we have been wearing. These are my favourite new launches.

Charlotte Tilbury Magic Lip Oil

I absolutely love the soft shine this formula gives to the lips. It feels instantly soothing and hydrating and makes my lips look juicy without being ‘over-the-top’ shiny.

Charlotte Tilbury Magic Lip Oil - best lip balm skincare product 2021

Plus it smells gorgeous – I think it’s like a very slight hint of caramel. They have just introduced tinted shades too which are super pretty.

Summer Fridays Lip Butter Balm

This one is up there with my favourite balms ever and it makes my lips look as good as they feel.

Best Skincare Products 2021 – Summer Fridays Lip Balm

The texture is beautiful and the thick butter starts to melt as soon as it comes into contact with the skin creating the most gorgeous glide and high shine. It has a blend of butters and seed oils that provide instant comfort. I love the packaging too.

It is available:

  1. Hi, Ree! Love your blog and IG. Do you know why the Kiehl’s Daily Refining Milk Peel Toner doesn’t appear to be available in the US? It sounds like the Dr. Jart+ DERMACLEAR™ MICRO MILK PEEL, which I’ve had in my cart many times at Sephora, but couldn’t pull the trigger on. I just checked and that Dr. Jart+ milk peel has now disappeared from Sephora US’s website. Apparently, 2021 doesn’t want me to have clear, glassy skin! Ha!
