Launch List: The Best Body Care Launching in January

Must read

Hundreds of products come across our desks every month, but not all of them deliver on their claims or live up to the hype. (Not everything that goes viral on TikTok is a miracle worker.) This is our exclusive curation of the best-in-class body-care products receiving rave reviews from our team and hitting shelves right now.

1 / 5

JLo Beauty Tighten + Tease Ultimate Body Serum ($60)

We’ll have whatever JLo is using—she makes 53 look like 25—including this new exfoliating body serum loaded with alphahydroxy acids (lactic and glycolic), firming peptides, niacinamide, fermented olive oil, and bentonite clay to smooth and brighten skin. Use it on your arms, legs and/or chest when you get out of the shower and you’ll feel the difference. I also love that it’s free of synthetic fragrance.

In a clinical study, 100 percent of participants demonstrated a measured increase in hydration immediately after applying the serum, and after four weeks of use, 89 percent demonstrated a measured increase in the appearance of brightness.

Native Candy Shop Collection ($9–$13)

This one is for all my fellow sweet tooths out there: Native has a new limited-edition collection inspired by candy, so you can now also get your sugar fix in the shower. There are four different scents: fruity Gummy Bear, Sweet Cinnamon Hearts (a nostalgic blend of nutty spices with a candy coating), tart Sour Berry Rope (a citrusy twist on mixed berry), and creamy Strawberry & Vanilla Taffy.

All scents are available as a Body Wash and Deodorant, though some have different deo options, whether it’s a sensitive formula, travel-size or plastic-free alternative. Gummy Bear also comes in Shampoo and Conditioner.

Nakery Beauty Intensive Repair Treatment Eczema Relief Soothing Treatment Wash ($32)

Packed with 2-percent colloidal oatmeal (the go-to ingredient for eczema sufferers), aloe and niacinamide, this steroid- and sulfate-free, calming cleanser can be used on both the face and body to reduce redness, dry skin, rosacea and itchy irritation from eczema.

“A team of dermatologists told me their eczema patients can’t cleanse with a soap, they can’t use sulfates, they can’t use fragrance—and this is the solution,” says brand founder Liz Folce. “Many people I spoke to in my focus group have eczema on their hands and face, so I wanted to make a wash that cleanses without stripping the skin, takes off makeup and contains ingredients that help with eczema. It provides instant and long-term relief for inflammation, redness, and even the most sensitive skin types. I also wanted people to have that lather experience. You can use it on your scalp, too—it’s amazing.”

Sol de Janeiro Bum Bum Firmeza Body Oil ($52)

If you love the brand’s cult-classic Bum Bum Cream, you must try this silky, deliciously scented oil. Infused with a proprietary blend of stimulating Brazilian guaraná, muirapuma and jaboticaba, as well as circulation-boosting micro algae, it works to visibly firm skin (like the cream). Brazilian olive oil makes up the nongreasy base and also gives the skin a pretty glow.

In a blind consumer testing study, after one use, 94 percent of participants said their skin was left feeling deeply hydrated all day, 98 percent reported optimal absorption into their skin, and 97 percent said their skin was instantly nourished. After two weeks of use, 99 percent saw a significant improvement in dry, ashy skin.

5 / 5

Perricone MD High Potency Hyaluronic Intensive Body Therapy ($49)

Body care has been steadily rising into the spotlight over the past couple years, and 2023 is going to be even bigger for the category. Built on the idea that we should be using skin-care ingredients from the neck down, this fragrance-free, nongreasy cream takes the concept to the next level. Formulated with four types of hyaluronic acid, as well as two “natural building blocks” of the ingredient, it deeply hydrates for a smoother and plumper-looking skin.

DMAE and brown algae extract provide firming benefits, which makes this cream ideal for those with a crepey skin texture (something Perricone MD is really good at addressing). Over time, skin becomes softer and more even in tone, too.
