While many of us are enjoying some indulgent beauty products for the holidays, we’re looking forward to some of the drugstore/mass-market releases coming in 2018.

Olay will introduce its Cleansing Infusion Hydrating Glow Facial Cleansers in two varieties, Deep Sea Kelp and Aloe Extract and Micropolishing Crushed Ginger and Citrus Extract ($9.99), and its Regenerist Whip creams, designed to act as a “cloud cream” ($38.99).  St. Ives debuts three waterless cleansing sticks in Matcha Green Tea and Ginger, Cactus Water and Hibiscus, and Apricot and Manuka Honey ($7.99).
