As this year draws to a close, it’s a good time to visit a few of the 2017 skin care trends. Many of the trends originate with indie beauty companies (like Apothekari) and while some may seem a bit out there to begin with, many gain traction and become mainstream after some time. Here are five that stood out this year:

  1. Masking. Google reported that wearing a face mask was the biggest skin care trend of 2017. Whether a sheet mask or a peel off mask, you’ll likely have seen many an Instagram blooger posting selfies of treatments incorporating ingredients like charcoal and turmeric.
  2. Cleaner, Greener Options. People are taking more note of what goes on their skin and 2017 saw a continued rise in the search for green options, including those of the vegan variety. According to Google, searches for vegan skin-care products have risen by a whopping 83 percent within the last year in the U.S.
  3. Ayurvedic Beauty is Becoming Mainstream. While the K-beauty trend is not going away anytime soon, we started to see brands and treatments incorporating Middle Eastern and South Asia wisdom with ingredients like turmeric. Beauty chocolates incorporating spices like cardamom and rose and inspired by Ayurveda also hit the aisles.
  4. Crystal, Celestial, and Otherworldly Skin Care. The New York Times dubbed 2017 as “The Great Crystal Boom”, a trend that focuses all things lunar cycle, solar powered, and crystal-loving being infused into skin care products.
  5. Men Are Taking Note of Skin Care. More men are becoming interested in their skin and companies are responding by offering more unisex products that appeal to both sexes. As well, there has been a growth in brands catering just to men.

Love, love, love!

I've only been using this serum for a couple of weeks and the difference in my skin is already noticeable. I have very sensitive skin and didn't have any irritation. I was able to use it daily from day 1. Love this product! It's going to be a staple in my arsenal from now on.

Works good but..

I have been using this deodorant for a couple weeks now and it works very well to keep door at bay. However it dries sticky and when I sweat it gets even more sticky. I will keep using fur a while to see if I can get past the sticky feeling, but not sure if I can. It’s too bad because it really does work.

Terrible Rash

This worked for a few weeks and I started getting a painful red rash under my arms. I was about to purchase a set of 4 and I’m glad that I didn’t. I reached out to the company to inquire about what could have caused this as they claim to have products that don’t cause rashes. Of course no one ever replied. Will not purchase again

It works!

Happy to finally found a natural deodorant that actually works- worth every penny. Excited to try more scents, especially the lavender when it is back in stock.

My new fave

This cream is my new fave. It's moisturizing without being greasy and absorbs well. The scent is crisp and clean without being overpowering. My husband and son have started using it and love it too! Might need another one to keep by the kitchen sink.
