15 beauty brands you should try in 2022

It’s a new year, and what better way to celebrate it than new skin-care products to up your beauty game? For those of you who have been on the lookout for new brands to add to your daily routine, I’m excited to put a few new ones on your radar. 

In my opinion, beauty isn’t only about how useful it is, but how enjoyable it is as well. The skin-care products on this list not only work to refresh, cleanse, hydrate and lock in moisture, they’re also a joy to use, and add to your at-home care experience. 

Take time in 2022 to pamper yourself more, and start by going through this list of beauty brands, because there’s something for everyone in a variety of prices, from the inexpensive to the opulent and everything in between.

Peach & Lily

The Korean skin-care brand Peach & Lily has become one of my favorite brands, because of its no-fuss approach to skin care. I tried the Glass Skin Discovery Kit, which has four steps to a skin-care routine: cleansing, toning, refining and moisturizing. If you’re looking for a kit that doesn’t dry your skin out when you wash it, but also adds needed hydration to it, this is it. All of the products have the right consistency, and a little goes a long way. If I had to choose one item of the bunch that I loved the most it would be the Matcha Pudding antioxidant cream, because the semithick cream melts right on your skin and locks in moisture.

Peach & Lily

Peach Slices’ Snail Rescue is another Korean beauty brand that is simply wonderful. I found that after using the Snail Rescue Trio, my flare-ups calmed down significantly. The wash-off mask was definitely the most fun product to use of the bunch, because of its gelatinous consistency. It also softened my skin and kept it hydrated as well. I am not new to snail mucin or K-beauty, so when I saw what this brand was about, I knew I would like it. The addition of licorice (which targets dark spots) is great as well.

Ulta Beauty

There aren’t many beauty brands that surprise me, but this is definitely one of them. I tried five products: GlamGlow Supermud clearing treatment, GlamGlow Thirstymud hydrating treatment, GlamGlow Brighteyes, GlamGlow Glowstarter and GlamGlow Brightmud. All of these products lifted my skin from the dull, drab look you get after a long flight, to a brighter, dare I say it, glowing face. The two products that really stood out were the Brightmud and the Glowstarter. The Brightmud had great exfoliating strength. It covered my face well and it had a nice refreshing feeling as it quickly dried. Once I took it off my face, I felt and saw brighter skin. I followed it up with the Glowstarter, which not only locked in moisture, but highlighted my skin with a nice shimmer to it. Of the two, I’d try the Glowstarter on for size.


This is a new brand based in Japan that you haven’t heard of, but should look into if you’re looking for skin care that cleans your skin effectively. This brand is likely best for people who don’t have dry skin. I do, so it worked a little too well! No worries though, I decided to follow it up with the Regena Cleansing oil and my skin immediately felt softer. Of the two, I’d go for the cleansing oil, but if you know you have oily skin, the cleanser will fix that in no time.


The Dewy Cleanse + Hydrate is a nice set for normal to dry skin types who want to try Japanese skin care. It’s formulated with ingredients like fermented rice that increases collagen, improves skin damage and reduces skin irritation. The Rice wash had a nice thick consistency and washed right off, leaving my skin clean, but it didn’t feel squeaky clean, which is how I like it. The Dewy skin cream was a great follow-up as a night cream as well. If you have a lot of inflammation and dry skin, you might want to check this system out.
