The Beauty World’s Best-Selling Skincare

5 top retailers on their most popular goods.

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?

 


Nordstrom

3 / 3
Laura Mercier Foundation Primer in Radiance: Cue Bey’s #Flawless. The lightweight, water-based gel primer preps the skin for foundation and makeup, leaving you a little more smooth and a little more glowy. Hot tip: Laura Mercier was the first brand to create a facial primer in 1995.

Credo: The Clean Beauty Favorites

1 / 3
Josh Rosebrook Hydrating Accelerator: The nutrient-rich priming mist hydrates skin cells, toning, tightening, and smoothing skin, lessening the appearance of wrinkles.

SPACE NK

1 / 3
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.

Net-a-Porter

1 / 3
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.

Sephora

1 / 3
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.
