If we had a million dollars, we’d bet it on the fact that the one thing the beauty world is obsessed with right now is products that target signs of aging. Seriously, from fine line-fighting creams to dark spot-reducing masks, the market is just about overflowing with insanely good beauty products that fight off the wonderful, super-fun signs of aging. And even though Sephora, the undeniable Mecca of outrageously cool new releases, packs the most impressive, sought-after selection, it’s damn hard to weave through the store and find them all on your monthly (see: daily) trips to the mall.
If you’re looking to build a skincare routine that combats fine lines, wrinkles, and dark spots, it’s time to add some products to your lineup that actually delivers results. We’re talking about smooth skin that looks like you shaved a few years off instantly. What should you look for? Seek out formulas that have ingredients like hyaluronic acid, retinol, and vitamin C. And since we spend way too much of our day stalking Sephora’s newest arrivals, we decided to do some digging for you. We combed Sephora’s massive (we’re talking huge) skincare section to find the eight best, top-rated formulas. Spoiler alert: They’re insane, and we’re literally kicking ourselves for all the money we’re about to spend. Shop all eight products ahead, including shopper-loved picks from Sunday Riley, Drunk Elephant, and more!

Summer Fridays Midnight Ritual Retinol Renewal Serum
If you’re looking to combat signs of aging, make sure you have retinol in your skincare lineup. Retinol is a potent ingredient that does it all — from diminishing lines to calming acne — it doesn’t get much better. Luckily, if you’re shopping for a retinol product, this one from Summer Fridays just launched at Sephora.
The Midnight Ritual Retinol Renewal Serum is crafted with vegan retinyl linoleate that fades discoloration, lines, and enlarged pores. The serum also has niacinamide and hyaluronic acid, which team up to lock moisture into the skin, leaving it looking dewy and fresh.
Algenist Genius Liquid Collagen Serum
Dermatologists say that adding collagen to your skincare routine can help enhance your complexion. This serum from Algenist helps re-boot the skin’s firmness. It makes skin firm again, thanks to the included collagen that’s in the formula. The serum also includes a patented alguronic acid, which smooths the look of lines and wrinkles, and leaves the skin plump.
Peter Thomas Roth Water Drench Hyaluronic Cloud Rich Barrier Moisturizer
Shoppers say this cream from Peter Thomas Roth “beats every other cream, hands down!” The moisturizer combats dry skin that can exacerbate signs of aging by strengthening the skin’s barrier with its rich and nourishing composition.
One reviewer said: “I am so pleasantly surprised by this moisturizer! This is the most hydrating cream I have ever tried, and I have tried a lot. I don’t even know what’s in this that makes it work so well, but the second I opened it, I tried it on the top of my hand. My cracked, dry skin immediately got hydrated, the lines disappeared, and the difference between the patch of skin I used it on and the skin next to it was wild!”
Drunk Elephant T.L.C. Framboos Glycolic Resurfacing Night Serum
This night serum is exactly what skin experiencing lines, wrinkles, and dull skin needs. It has a unique blend of alpha hydroxy acids (AHA), salicylic acid, and raspberry fruit extract that resurfaces, unclogs, and exfoliates the skin. The result? A complexion that looks revived and hydrated.
Caudalie Premier Cru Skin Barrier Rich Moisturizer
Caudalie is known for its French-inspired products that use “extracts from the grape and grapevine.” The new Premier Cru Skin Barrier Rich Moisturizer uses the same tried and true formulas that treat multiple skin issues. The rich cream promises to fade eight signs of aging, including lines, wrinkles, dark spots, and redness, to name a few. The cream actually delivers on its promise thanks to bio-ceramides, shea butter, and hyaluronic acid.
Sunday Riley Juno Antioxidant + Superfood Face Oil
Don’t let the words face oil scare you. Most associate oil with a product that clogs pores and causes breakouts. But that’s not the case with Sunday Riley’s superfood face oil. Thanks to an antioxidant-packed combination of blueberry seed, cranberry seed, and broccoli seed oil, your skin is left with a nourished feeling and a smooth, bright appearance.
Farmacy Filing Good Hyaluronic Acid Plumping Serum
If your skin needs some plumping action, make sure to have this serum on hand. The hyaluronic acid serum has, you guessed it, hyaluronic acid, which is responsible for holding up to 1000 times its weight in moisture, meaning all of that hydration is locked in the skin. And even though the serum deeply hydrates, it still maintains a lightweight texture.
Biossance Squalane + Marine Algae Firming & Lifting Eye Cream
Don’t forget to add an eye cream to your skincare routine. Even though there are plenty on the market, few can beat this one from Biosssance. The eye cream uses marine algae peptide complex to help erases fine lines and wrinkles. It also includes squalane for an extra dose of hydration.
