2018 was a year full of great products — from innovative beauty tools and brand new face mask formulas to hydrating lotions and soothing cleansers, there is so much to love! We’ve rounded up 10 of our favorite products that we tried in 2018 to bring you the best of the best. Here are Spa Week’s favorite products of 2018:


Elemis Peptide4 Thousand Flower Mask $45



We try a lot of face masks here at Spa Week and there are tons of great options for different skin concerns out there. Elemis’s newest addition is a step above the rest. This rejuvenating and revitalizing mask minimizes the appearance of pores, smoothes, brightens, and revitalizes dull skin all while gently exfoliating. This is definitely our choice for mask of the year, and it’s one that everyone should try in 2019.


StackedSkincare Microneedling Tool 2.0 $125



Beauty Tools got a serious upgrade in 2018 and along with them, we’ve upgraded our skincare routine! Our serums are all so much more effective when we use StackedSkincare’s microneedling tool. Using stainless steel needles to gently micro-exfoliate, this product is the way to make all of your other products work even better than they already do. It creates smoother, plumper, firmer-looking skin, all while helping your products penetrate deeper into the skin.


Sol de Janeiro Coco Cabana Cream $45



As the weather outside gets colder, our skin gets drier and drier. Sol de Janeiro’s magical moisture magnet gives your skin the deepest level of hydration. It’s full of great ingredients like coconut and sugar. 2018 has been all about treating your body just as well as your face, and this is the product to transform dry skin into the softest, most luscious version of itself.


Sunday Riley Ceramic Slip Cleanser $35



In 2018, Sunday Riley adjusted their cleanser formula to make it better than ever. This deeply cleansing cleanser is also perfect for sensitive skin – it’s soothing and calming while also drawing out impurities from the deepest layers of your skin. This gel cleanser also delivers hydration and leaves your skin with a natural glow– without any redness or irritation!


/skin regimen/ Enzymatic Powder $45



Exfoliation had its moment in 2018, with tons of companies offering new products– everything from cleansing brushes to exfoliating powders and scrubs. Skin Regimen’s newest product transforms from a powder into a foam when mixed with water to deeply exfoliate – removing dead cells and leaving your with a brighter, smoother complexion. We love the ingredients in this product, chlorella and papaya enzymes, and this gentle exfoliation is great for all skin types – except for the especially sensitive.


First Aid Beauty Skin Rescue Acne Clearing Pads with White Clay $30



We all know the way a big zit can ruin your otherwise flawless skin. The convenient pads eliminate pimples while preventing more breakouts in the future. With ingredients like Kaolin Clay, Tea Tree Oil, and Willow Bark, these pads gently exfoliate, clear acne, brighten skin, and unclog pores. These multitasking, quick-working pads are the perfect flash treatment of 2018.


Urban Skin RX VitalEyez + C Serum $48



Vitamin C is the ingredient of 2018 (and every year, if we’re being honest.) This powerhouse vitamin brightens, hydrates, and firms skin. This treatment is perfect for anyone with dark circles, fine lines, and wrinkles around the eye area. If you didn’t get enough sleep in 2018, this is the product you need.


Slip Large SlipSilk Scrunchies $39



You’ve probably heard of the transformation that comes with Slip silk pillowcases, but their scrunchies are the latest addition to their Slip’s line of anti-aging silk products and we can’t get enough of them. These hair ties prevent damage to hair and eliminate kinks. They’re the perfect addition to your daily routine.


IGK Hair Foamo Holographic Hair Foam $22



Add some fun to your life with this shade-shifting, holographic glitter foam that transforms your hair as it moves in the light. We love this fun product from IGK, it’s the perfect accessory to any look and a great way to upgrade your style. This product is a unique touch that washes out easily with shampoo.


Glow Recipe Avocado Melt Sleeping Mask $45



From the brand that brought you the cult-favorite watermelon mask, comes a brand new mask with your favorite hydrating  ingredient: avocado! This mask includes avocado, manuka honey, PHA, and kaolin clay. Working while you sleep, the mask delivers deep hydration, pulls impurities from skin, provides a gentle exfoliation, and delivers antioxidants and soothing properties to your skin.
