But while CES is best-known for big product launches, there are also tons of accessory manufacturers showing off their newest products. We roamed the halls at CES 2018, looking for the best mobile accessories. Here’s a few of our favorites.

From L’Oréal’s wearable that can track UV exposure to Foreo’s high-tech facial masks, beauty tech was a huge trend as CES 2018. However, the Neutrogena Skin360 was the most exciting beauty accessory we saw this year. The Neutrogena Skin360 attaches to your phone to analyze your skin. The Skin360 can keep track of pore size, skin moisture, and skin quality. With the Skin360, you can easily track how small changes, such as drinking more water, have an effect on your skin.  The Neutrogena Skin360 should be available in stores this summer and will be priced at $50.
