This year is in full swing and I have been trying out some new and new to me beauty products for the past few months! Every year, I love finding the newest and best products on the market, whether it’s jumping on the bandwagon with a hyped celebrity product or going rogue with a couple of undiscovered or under appreciated brands! Here are my favorite 2022 beauty products that I think everyone should try out before this year comes to a close!

Juice Beauty

Revitalizing Acacia + Rose Powder Mask

2022 beauty products

This one is a collaboration with Juice Beauty x Kate Hudson. This really appealed to me as it was brand new in March and it was my birthday, so I went for it. I love the idea of a powered mask that you mix in small batches as needed with water! I love rose and Kate Hudson is cool,  so yeah, I was sold! This mask is cool, refreshing and has a light rose scent. You have to be careful to add very small amounts of water as you mix to get the right consistency. It comes with a beautiful little brush to apply it with. I love this mask to use once a week to tone, moisturize and clarify. I’m glad I bought it.

Sea Salt & Collagen Peptides Restorative Facial Serum

2022 beauty products

I love absolutely this brand! The serum is wonderful and makes your skin so so smooth! It is smooth and glides onto either dry or damp skin, which isn’t super common. I started with their cleanser and toner, and have fallen in love!

Blue Sea Kale + Marine Hyaluronic Facial Cleanser & Seaweed + Glycolic Acid Facial Toner

2022 beauty products


This brand is so good and the price point is amazing! I’m already on my 3rd bottle of the toner and 2nd bottle of the cleanser! The toner is moisturizing and does not make your face feel dry and tight, yet it feels very clean. It does not disrupt your skin’s natural balance like other toners do! The same goes for the cleanser!


Mineralist Lip Gloss

2022 beauty products

I needed 2 new glosses after running out of my beloved Carmindy Beauty ones. I was on the hunt for one bronze and one sheer true pink for my no-makeup look days, so I got the shades Adventure (a golden bronze) and Imagination (a sheer, non-shimmery) Non-shimmery is a very important detail for a no-makeup-makeup-look glossy pink. These lip glosses are shiny and most importantly not STICKY!


Blondage High Bright Shampoo for Blondes and Highlights


If you have blonde highlights or Balayage, it is time to try Redken’s new brightening shampoo and conditioner in time for spring and summer. If you’ve been using too much purple shampoo or have been getting ashy toning glosses at the salon, it’s time to ditch the muted grey and cool tones and brighten up! This shampoo/conditioner set uses the power of citric acid and vitamin C to brighten dull blondes after the first use!
