A new year calls for new Fruit Babies, which is why we’re so excited to spill the news of the 2023 Fruit Babies Bestsellers Kit. Not only does it include a few of our latest drops from the past year, including the Strawberry Smooth AHA + BHA Salicylic Serum, but it also features the newest cleanser to join the Glow Recipe fam — meaning this is a great chance to try it out.
That’s the beauty of the Fruit Babies kit, too: With best-selling products in midi sizes, it gives you a chance to try out new products you may not have had a chance to test out. Not only that, but the TSA-approved sizes make it ideal for travel, too, allowing you to take a comprehensive skincare routine on the road. The products within, which are safe for all skin types, can be used both A.M. and P.M.; just pack a sunscreen to keep skin protected during the day.
With that in mind, here’s what you can find in the new Fruit Babies Bestselling Kit — and why it’s bound to level up your skincare game for 2023.
Cleanse: Avocado Ceramide Moisture Barrier Cleanser
The newest product to join the Glow Recipe family, this barrier-strengthening cleanser is powered by ceramides, which are lipids naturally found within skin’s moisture barrier and lost over time or to harsh, stripping products. Avocado Ceramide Moisture Barrier Cleanser pairs them with pre- and postbiotics, which support a balanced skin microbiome, as well as colloidal oatmeal to soothe redness caused by dehydration. You’ll also find makeup-removal agents that are so gentle, they’re used in baby washes; however, they’re still effective enough to remove even stubborn eye makeup.
Tone: Watermelon Glow PHA+BHA Pore-Tight Toner
While the Watermelon Glow PHA+BHA Pore-Tight Toner isn’t a new addition to the Fruit Babies Bestsellers Kit, it’s now included in a larger size (25 mL) — giving you even more of its hydrating, pore-clearing benefits. If you’re only familiar with the skin-stripping toner of formulas past, you’re in luck: Inspired by the Korean Aqua Peel facial, which pairs exfoliation with hydration to balance skin, it’s packed with amino acid-rich watermelon extract, bouncy cactus water, and a gentle blend of polyhydroxy and beta hydroxy acids to gently smooth and decongest skin. Plus, you’ll also find hyaluronic acid and cucumber to hydrate skin, making it great for any and all skin types.
Treat: Strawberry Smooth BHA + AHA Salicylic Serum
This 2022 launch makes clear skin not only possible, but easy: Strawberry Smooth BHA + AHA Salicylic Serum is able to address a ton of skin concerns, such as fine lines, blemishes, and dark spots, all without stressing skin out. In fact, the smoothing formula is still gentle enough to use daily.
That’s thanks in part to our 10% Clarity Acid Complex, which blends 2% salicylic acid — an oil-soluble beta hydroxy acid that’s able to sink into pores and clear them from the inside out — with mandelic acid, azelaic acid, succinic acid, and, of course, the namesake strawberry. Even better: That salicylic acid is encapsulated, which minimizes irritation at skin’s surface and delivers it directly where it needs to go. And, of course, the formula includes hyaluronic acid and allantoin (known for its soothing properties), which can help reduce dryness.
Enhance: Watermelon Glow Niacinamide Dew Drops
You might already be familiar with the Watermelon Glow Niacinamide Dew Drops, our makeup-skincare hybrid that works on two levels — offering that much more for your skin. First, you can use it as a face serum: Not only will you find the eponymous watermelon, which provides antioxidants like vitamin A, vitamin C, and lycopene, but it’s also packed with niacinamide. This wonder ingredient is a mainstay in the skincare world, and for good reason: Not only does it address a ton of skin concerns — since it serves as an antioxidant, bolsters the skin barrier, quells inflammation, minimizes the look of pores, and fades dark spots — but it does this so gently that all skin types can use it.
While you get those long-term perks, however, the lightweight emulsion offers instant benefits when used as makeup, too. It doubles as a highlighting serum for cheekbones, brow bones, and other areas of the face — leaving a dewy sheen without mica, glitter, or pearls.
Moisturize: Plum Plump Hyaluronic Cream
New to the Fruit Babies fam is Plum Plump Hyaluronic Cream, which expanded our moisturizer lineup in late 2021. This gel-cream formula packs five different weights of hyaluronic acid to hydrate multiple layers of skin, plumping it from the inside out.
It also contains three types of plums rich in antioxidants to rejuvenate skin, as well as polyglutamic acid, a type of peptide that boosts the efficacy of hyaluronic acid for lasting moisture. The moisturizer is also great for all skin types, thanks in part to the ice willowherb, which helps balance oil.
The newest Fruit Babies Bestsellers Kit is a genius way to take some of the latest and greatest products for a spin, whether you’re traveling somewhere or trying them out at home. Either way, we hope you love it as much as we do.
