The Beauty World’s Best-Selling Skincare

5 top retailers on their most popular goods.

The Beauty World’s Best-Selling Skincare
Meagan Wilson

Like any naive (okay, we’ll call it hopeful) person, we like to think that great skin can last forever, that that one blemish-free week might span to two, and that your wrinkle-free 25-year-old skin won’t actually change too much before you’re 30. Enter hormones, stress, a few too many poolside hours, and that fast-approaching (foreboding) birthday, and before you know it, we’re trolling the web for miracle whips and wearing animal-emblazoned face masks that purport to boost collagen production. Yes, our S/Os were equally as confused when they walked in on that one.

The good news is, we’re all in this one together, and what better way to deal with our own skin woes than to learn from the buying methods of others? So, turning to the skincare departments of Sephora, Nordstrom, Net-a-Porter, Space NK, and Credo, we dove into their bestsellers—the tried-and-true top three products that customers just keep on coming back for. You don’t become a cult commodity for nothing, right?



La Mer The Moisturizing Soft Cream: Not for those on a beer budget. Infused with what La Mer dubs its “Miracle Broth™” (talk about swank), the seriously luxe cream moisturizes and strengthens skin, claiming to bring back its youthful glow. And by the rate it’s bought, it might just be worth that extra buck.

Credo: The Clean Beauty Favorites

Josh Rosebrook Hydrating Accelerator: The nutrient-rich priming mist hydrates skin cells, toning, tightening, and smoothing skin, lessening the appearance of wrinkles.


Sunday Riley Good Genes: Used daily or as an occasional mask, the youth elixir employs licorice to reduce hyperpigmentation and lemongrass to improve circulation, together turning back your skin’s clock.


Natura Bissé's Diamond Instant Glow: Bissé’s travel-friendly three-step “mini facelift” peels, boosts, and lifts skin, reducing the look of imperfections and refreshing the whole face while it’s at it.


Boscia Luminizing Black Mask: Using a combination of Montmorillonite Clay and botanical extracts, the detoxifying peel-off mask is as fun as it is effective, removing oil, dirt, and minimizing the appearance of pores.
