4 Skin Slugging Products

May 5, 2022

While it’s a rather strange (or maybe even icky) term for a beauty treatment, skin slugging has extremely effective results. Skin slugging is when you apply a very thick wax, balm, or cream to your face so it can act as a barrier to help skin stay moisturized. At its very basics you can use Vaseline, but as this skincare regimen took off in recent months, brands have taken notice and created great products that can be used to revitalize and correct our skin thanks to slugging. Here are a few great skin slugging products to try out. —Jennifer Cox

Skinfix’s Barrier+ Skin Barrier Restoring Gel Cream ($62) is a lightweight gel cream face moisturizer that is great for all skin types but is especially helpful for those who have oily or acne-prone skin. It offers long-lasting hydration as well as fantastic skin barrier repair. It helps restore, nourish, and balance your pH balance too.

Formulated to be a deeply moisturizing, wax-free perfecting balm for all skin types is the NYMPH NECTAR Superfruit Radiance Balm from Earth Harbor ($38). Not only does it help with premature skin aging, but it plumps up tired, dehydrated skin and helps to correct any damage caused by environmental factors.

The Essential Serum Balm from Kari Gran ($65) is a velvety, moisturizing face balm that nourishes dry skin with organic camellia and rosehip oils, with soothing properties thanks to organic arnica and sea buckthorn CO2. When you use this product, your skin will feel ultra-hydrated and smooth without an oily build-up of residue. It can also be used on your body.

What we love about the Super Hydrate Overnight Mask from Paula’s Choice Skincare ($28) is that you wake up to a plump, dewy, healthy-looking complexion—talk about a good morning! This mask actually resets depleted skin. With shea butter and glycerine, it replenishes stressed, overtired skin, while reishi mushroom and cloudberry reduces any redness.
