COSMEDIX 2021 Recap: Skinimalism Skincare Favorites to Bring Into 2022

As we head into 2022, the skincare philosophy of “skinimalism”—embracing a simpler, cleaner approach towards beauty—continues to reign supreme among the press, clients and celebs alike. Whether it’s making the switch to multi-tasking skincare products, fostering a skincare routine with gentler ingredients or lightening the load in our makeup bags, skinimalism is all about taking a few steps back and letting skin breathe. To help guide you along your way to an intentional skincare routine in 2022, we’re highlighting all the releases from the past year that can help you showcase a more radiant, healthier-looking complexion.

1. I-Complex | Advanced Eye Gel AM

A daytime under eye treatment? Yes, please. Spa-exclusive I-Complex is an Advanced Eye Gel that utilizes Bakuchiol (a superstar plant-based Retinol alternative) to help smooth the look of wrinkles, brighten the appearance of the under eyes and deeply hydrate skin. Expect a smooth finish that goes seamlessly under makeup!

2. Alt-A | Daily Rejuvenating Moisturizer

Truly fit for a skinimalist skincare routine, this multi-tasking moisturizer helps revive the look of lackluster skin while also helping to improve the look of fine lines and wrinkles. Featuring age-defying Silk Tree Bark Extract, gentle Bakuchiol and Ectoin for protection from environmental stressors, this spa-exclusive Daily Rejuvenating Moisturizer deeply hydrates the complexion for a brighter, more radiant appearance.

3. Bakuchiol Complete | Plant-Based Retinol Alternative Serum

Bakuchiol is a trending skincare ingredient that’s not going anywhere anytime soon, thanks to its breakthrough properties as a gentle, plant-based alternative to Retinol. Bakuchiol Complete is an uber-moisturizing serum that’s infused with Squalene, Jojoba Seed Oil and Moringa Oil to help restore hydration and balance to dry skin.

4. Skin Thirst | Moisturizing Hyaluronic Acid Cream

Hyaluronic Acid has true staying power within the skincare industry, and Skin Thirst is perfect proof as to why. This lush, gel moisturizer acts like a tiny sponge for skin, helping to lock in hydration, soothe and mattify the look of the complexion. Witch Hazel and mattifying skincare ingredients gently condition the complexion, helping to blur the appearance of pores and protect the skin from environmental stressors. This daily moisturizer is great for use under makeup or as part of your evening skincare routine.

5. Harmonize | Microbiome Boosting Moisturizer AM/PM

Your skin is home to trillions of microorganisms—you’re literally their whole world. But have no fear, Harmonize is here to help restore a healthy microbiome, leaving skin more balanced and smoother-looking with daily use. Formulated with an age-defying skincare blend of fruit and plant extracts, along with a skin-conditioning probiotic, this Microbiome Boosting Moisturizer helps strengthen skin’s natural moisture barrier and protect the complexion from environmental stressors for a hydrated, radiant look!

6. Resync | Revitalizing Night Cream

We love Resync because it deeply hydrates the complexion overnight, helping to revitalize the appearance of a dull complexion even as you sleep. It features skin-loving superstars like South Korean Lespedeza and Kakadu Plum to hydrate and rejuvenate the skin’s appearance after being exposed to environmental stressors, like blue light. This helps decrease the look of skin fatigue for optimal skincare product performance throughout the day. Now that’s what we call multi-tasking.

7. Bio-Cellulose | Radiant & Rejuvenating Mask Set

For a glowing look that just might have you foregoing makeup, we introduce Bio-Cellulose. This Radiant & Rejuvenating Mask Set includes two Damask Rose Infused Sheet Masks and two Vitamin C-Infused Sheet Masks—each infused with age-defying ingredients, like Vitamin C and Rose Water, to help replenish moisture and smooth the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles for a more revitalized and radiant-looking complexion.

8. Crystal Cleanse | Hydrating Liquid Crystal Cleansing Cream

Formulated with the same fan-favorite Liquid Crystal Technology as loved in Opti Crystal and Lumi Crystal, Crystal Cleanse is the perfect way to step up your cleansing routine. This Hydrating Liquid Crystal Cleansing Cream deeply hydrates the complexion and washes away dirt, oil and makeup without stripping skin of much-needed moisture. Prickly Pear Extract and Coconut Oil help soften the look of skin for a more refreshed and refined-looking complexion—continuing to add a dose of daily moisture to skin even after rinse-off.

9. Brilliancy | Vitamin C Brightening Face Oil AM/PM

Brighten up with Brilliancy, the Vitamin C Brightening Face Oil that deeply hydrates the complexion and soothes skin with Elderberry Fruit Extract and age-defying plant-based ingredients. This pampering serum instantly gives your skin a fresh burst of hydration and visibly helps brighten skin’s appearance with each use.

10. PHA Hydration Peel | Refining Exfoliator

Get the post-facial glow at home with PHA Hydration Peel! This spa-like peel treatment gently exfoliates away dull, dead skin to help illuminate the appearance of your complexion. Gentle enough for all skin types, this Refining Exfoliator helps soften, smooth and brighten the appearance of skin for a more even-looking complexion.
