We’ve introduced retinol as one of the trendiest ingredients to try this year — although we all know that the retinol hype has been going strong for years. Anti-aging is always in! The elusive fountain of youth remains to be found, but the beauty industry is *committed*. Good news is, it seems like we’re getting closer every year with more advanced youth-enhancing and age-rewinding solutions launching every season. If you’ve been looking for what’s new and spicy in the anti-aging department, we’ve got the scoop from paradise. Here are the newest and best anti-aging skincare products to shop at Sephora, fresh off the shelves from 2021!
1. IT Cosmetics Hello Results Wrinkle-Reducing Daily Retinol Serum-in-Cream, S$100
For: Everyday anti-aging care.
A potent double shot! IT Cosmetics’ Hello Results Wrinkle-Reducing Daily Retinol Serum-In-Cream is an anti-aging serum and soothing cream in one, featuring a powerful blend of free and encapsulated retinol. The expert formula boosts skin firmness, reduces fine lines and pigmentation, while supporting healthy skin barrier function with added Niacinamide, Vitamin B5 and Vitamin E. This is also one of IT Cosmetics’ most advanced solutions to date. In fact, the serum-in-cream was co-developed with a board of dermatologists and plastic surgeons — for the most dramatic results yet.
2. Ole Henriksen Dewtopia™ 20% Acid Night Treatment, S$78
For: Powerful overnight retexturizing.
Leave it to this miracle night-time retexturizing serum to do all heavy lifting for a major skin reboot overnight. Ole Henriken’s Dewtopia Acid Night Treatment packs an exceptionally powerful punch with its 20% acid blend (featuring 10% AHAs and 10% PHAs) to chemically exfoliate your skin as you sleep. Think a smoother, brighter and plumper visage the morning after! That said, this is definitely a heavy duty acid treatment. So remember to introduce it slowly into your skincare routine if you’re new to skin acids.
3. BYBI Eye Plump Overnight Eye Cream, S$49
For: A straightforward anti-aging eye cream that works.
If you gravitate towards uncomplicated and highly effective skincare, BYBI’s Eye Plump Overnight Eye Cream cuts straight to the chase. The nourishing overnight eye treatment is supercharged with Bakuchiol, Hyaluronic Acid and Broccoli Seed Oil to replenish and regenerate the delicate eye area. Bakuchiol is really the star of the show here — it is the hero plant-based alternative to retinol. If you cannot tolerate retinol (or want to steer clear of potential side effects), BYBI’s Eye Plump will be an excellent alternative anti-aging eye treatment.

On a personal note, sunscreen launches always give me butterflies, you can never have enough SPF! Sunscreen is also one of the best anti-aging skincare products you should own. Dr Dennis Gross’s new All-Physical Lightweight Wrinkle Defense sunscreen dream features broad spectrum SPF protection against UVA/UVB rays, environmental aggressors, as well as premature photo-aging. It is a chock full of anti-aging goodness: antioxidant-rich Bearberry, Sea Buckthorn, Lingonberry and Ferulic Acid. The invisible, non-greasy formula also doubles up as a makeup primer for all skin tones.
