January: The month of new beginnings. Resolutions are made (and subsequently broken—but that’s for later), resolves are strengthened, and hopes are high. What will 2017 bring? It’s hard to say—2016 was proof that there’s no use in trying to predict, well, anything—but one thing we know we can count on for sure this month is a whole new crop of beauty products to brighten our spirits and change our beauty routines for the better. Ahead, you’ll find exciting new launches from Tom Ford, Urban Decay, and more of your favorite brands. Go ahead, put those Christmas gift cards to use. We fully approve.

10 Beauty Products Launching in January You're Going to Love
J.One Black Jelly Pack ($47)
We’ve already waxed poetic about the skin-smoothing, pore-banishing properties of J.One’s original Jelly Pack, and this sister version sounds just as promising. Made with black cumin seed, truffle, black currant, blackberry, and more midnight-hued ingredients, this repairing treatment is meant to be used as an overnight mask and is meant to be especially life-changing for oily skin types.
Tatcha The Essence ($95)
The day has come—Tatcha has finally released an essence. Thicker than most on the market, it’s filled with hydrating ingredients that flood your skin with moisture and increase the potency of any serums or products you choose to use after. This is a winter skincare must.
Purpletale Plot Twist Restorative Cream ($35)
This isn’t your average moisturizer. For starters, it bounces. New kid Korean beauty brand Purpletale sought to create a moisturizer that would hydrate without clogging pores, and this light, memory foam-like formula is just that. The bouncy texture melts quickly and easily into your skin, making it perfect as the final step before foundation.
Urban Decay Optical Illusion Complexion Primer ($34)
Be still our hearts—Urban Decay is launching an entirely new line of primers this January. The five different formulas all target a different skincare concern—from Bright & Tight, which hydrates and brightens tired, aging skin, to Optical Illusion, which is basically that skin-smoothing Snapchat filter IRL—and all of them will make your skin look photo-ready in a flash.
The Body Shop Drops of Youth Youth Liquid Peel ($25)
It’s safe to say we’re obsessed with gommage peels—a traditional exfoliator’s gentler, more satisfying sister. Apply a thin layer of this version from The Body Shop to your face and massage it in for 20 seconds—your dead skin cells will bunch up in little balls. Gross, but so satisfying.
Charlotte Tilbury Quick N Easy Kit in Naturally Glowing ($75)
Do you have five minutes? That’s all you need to create a full-face of makeup with these on-the-go sets from Charlotte Tilbury. Whether you’re more Naturally Glowing or Red Carpet Party, each of these carefully-curated kits contain all you need to pull off your desired look in less time than it usually takes for you to pick an Instagram filter.
111Skin Cryo Activating Hydra Gel ($220)
Intrigued by the whole cryotherapy trend but not quite ready to expose your body to sub-zero temps? Dip your toe in with 111Skin’s Cryo-inspired line instead. The new waterless moisturizer sinks deep into the skin and is made with lotus extract, beet extract, and hydrating spheres that plump up your skin on contact.
