Beauty Insider sums up some the most innovative beauty products of 2017, based on ingredients, technology and packaging.

Dragon’s Blood Lip Mask

Rodial’s Dragon’s Blood Lip Mask, part of the brand’s high-performance skin care collection that focuses on targeted treatments, is a bio-cellulose lip mask formulated to deliver moisture to lips for a fuller-looking pout. The mask contains dragon’s blood extract and hyaluronic acid that have anti-inflammatory benefits, soothes skin and provides intense hydration and plumps up lip volume. Dragon’s Blood is a bright red resin obtained from the Croton Lechleri tree, used since ancient times. Rodial’s Dragon’s Blood range also includes an eye mask, body sculpting gel, sculpting serum, and a lip collection.

Sphynx Portable Razor

The Sphynx Portable Razor is a compact, portable razor that contains a refillable water spray, a moisturizing pre-shave bar and two razor blades. Small enough to be carried in a gym bag, beach bag, in the car, or stashed in an office drawer, the razor is designed to be used in case of missed spots or for touchups between shaves. ‘Shave yourself the embarrassment,’ states Sphynx on its website, a brand that was created to sidestep the bathroom-bound beauty routine.

M.A.C Rollerwheel Liquid Liner
M.A.C’s Rollerwheel Liquid Liner is like ‘training wheels’ for liquid lining, with a groundbreaking spinning disk applicator that absorbs the perfect amount of product to create a continuous, even stroke of color along the lash line, defying even the shakiest of hands. The liner is available in a range of finishes, including matte and shiny.

DAFNI Go – Hair-styling Brush

Dafni, creators of the ‘first and original hair straightening brush,’ launched a smaller, travel-sized version in 2017. The brush, which maintains 365 degrees Fahrenheit, is reportedly safer and less damaging to hair. It includes a thermal cover and thermal bag for packing immediately after use. Dafni founder, Sharon Rabi, was featured as one of ‘Forbes 30 Under 30,’ and is sold worldwide.

Lisse Real Hydrogen Yuza Snow Ice Cooling Cream

Lisse Real Hydrogen Yuza Snow Ice Cooling Cream is an ambitious cream: one scoop cares for pores, whitens, hydrates, moisturizes, and acts as an anti-bacterial antioxidant and sebum-controller. The product contains hydrogen water and aqua micro capsules that lower the temperature of the skin and keep it moisturized. Hydrogen is the smallest atom in the universe with strong antioxidant power that neutralizes free radicals by turning them into pure water, explains the brand. The cream’s sherbet texture keeps skin soft and matte. Additional ingredients include yuza extract and natural fruit extracts.

Living Proof Perfect Hair Day In-Shower Hair Styler
Living Proof Perfect Hair Day In-Shower Hair Styler is applied in the shower and lightly rinsed, leaving behind only what is needed to create desired air-dried styles. As hair dries, it allegedly contracts, enhancing natural waves. The product features a thickening molecule (PBAE) that creates separation between strands for body, and lightweight conditioners for shine. It is suitable for both straight and wavy hair, and is silicone-free and sulfate-free.

Aquaphor Advanced Therapy Ointment Body Spray
Aquaphor, synonymous with a rich and deeply healing ointment for dry, ailing skin and especially difficult-to-heal cracked heels, is now available in spray form in an ultra-fine, cooling mist and fast-absorbing spray. With ingredients including petrolatum, mineral oil and lanolin alcohol, the spray delivers the same intense hydration as the original ointment minus the gooey texture that takes forever to absorb.

Drunk Elephant T.L.C. Sukari Babyfacial
Drunk Elephant’s TLC Sukari Babyfacial is the skin care line’s answer to an at-home facial, with 25 percent AHA and 2 percent BHA, and a blend of glycolic, tartaric, lactic, citric and salicylic acids, that aim to resurface the skin to reveal a radiant texture. Sukari Babyfacial is also made with antioxidant ingredients such as matcha tea, vitamin C-laden apple and milk thistle to calm and soothe skin.
