The Inkey List has only been around for a mere 16 months, and yet with its loyal Instagram following and expansive product range, you’d have thought it had been with us for a whole lot longer. The brand has become famous for its super affordable single ingredient-led skincare, and in particular its hyaluronic acid, which you can buy for a mere £5.99. It’s also great at releasing new, exciting product drops, which come often thanks to its tiny 12 week long idea-shelf production time.
Its latest drop is just as exciting as the ones that have come before, and features a number of unique formulas we’ve not really seen in skincare yet. The range consists of six new products, the most notable of which has to be the Apple Cider Vinegar Acid Peel, which – as its name suggests – utilities apple cider vinegar and proves it’s not just great for the gut.
Also in the range is a retinol eye cream and a super handy cleansing balm that comes in hygienic tube packaging. All the new additions launch in February on Cult Beauty, and here’s what you can expect:
