New Year, New Stash: 8 Beauty Products You Must Try In 2021


It’s safe to say that we’re all excited about 2021 for multiple reasons, with the main one being that 2020 was horrible and we’re happy to see it go. Aside from hoping that in the new year, we go back to our daily routines, we’re also stoked about the fact that the new year means new beauty launches and nothing boosts our and every other beauty lover’s mood than a cool new makeup, skin or hair launches.

There are a few that have already been released this year but due to the pandemic, most of us didn’t get a chance to try them. From new haircare products to beauty fridges and fragrance-free skincare creams, scroll down to see what products we’re waiting to try in 2021.

Must-Have Beauty Products of 2021

Hair Balm

Much like lip balms, a hair balm focuses on moisturizing your tresses while reducing frizz without leaving the scalp and strands greasy or oily. It is perfect for those who have curly or coily hair. Hair balms can solve almost any hair problem which is why in 2021, they are going to take over the beauty world.

Pillow Mist

Due to the months of quarantine, our sleep cycle is gone for a toss. If you’re trying your best to get back to your pre-pandemic sleep schedule post quarantine, then try the Body Shop French Lavender Pillow Mist. Just one spritz on the pillow and you’ll be dreaming about purple lavender fields. This spray is designed with properties that calm the mind and help you nod off faster.

Gel Sunscreen

Cetaphil is known for its skin-loving serums and creams that are actually effective in treating various skin issues. So, you know that their sunscreen is going to live up to its hype as well. If you hate the greasy feeling that most sunscreens give, this is the one to try. Cetaphil's new sunscreen has a gel-like formula that’s easy to apply, waterproof and gives both UVA and UVB protection.

Given that next year, we may get to venture out again *fingers crossed*, sunscreen is going to play a major role in our life, which is why this product should be part of your beauty bag.

Luxe Makeup & Skincare

Makeup took the back seat this year but in 2021 it is coming back with a bang. Brands like Charlotte Tilbury and Becca launched this year and if you’re looking to up your makeup game, you can pick products from their endless collection.

Mini Makeup And Skin Care Fridges

Yup, this is going to be a thing in 2021! Many beauty products need to be stored in cool places. Now, instead of storing them with your food products, you can get a mini-fridge just for your makeup and skincare products. Most of these fridges are tiny enough to fit in your bathroom or bedroom and is the perfect place to store your jade rollers and eye creams.

Fragrance-Free Skin Care

The world is slowly getting on board the non-toxic beauty route so by 2021 many brands are going to introduce fragrance-free skincare products in the beauty market. Fragrance-free skin care products like the L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Anti-Wrinkle + Firming Moisturizer Fragrance-Free is paraben, dye and fragrance-free, making it suitable for all skin types with less possibility of an allergic reaction.

Tik Tok Skincare Fave - Niacinamide

Niacinamide has recently gained popularity and it is sure to continue in 2021 as well. So, why are they suddenly gaining popularity? Well, niacinamide serums are known to address dark spots and visible signs of ageing. It also reduces acne and brightens the skin!

Guilt-Free Makeup

It's 2021 and most brands are either going down the sustainable route or the cruelty-free and vegan route. If there's one healthy switch you make this year for your skin and the little furries, let it be switching to cruelty-free products. They are not tested on animals, have less nasties in them and are much healthier for your skin.

Looks like the new year is going to be LIT. #XOXO2021
