After what feels like the longest, coldest winter ever, there’s finally an end in sight: March is upon us, bringing with it the official start of spring — and a slew of new beauty products, too. You’re bound to want to scoop up every new release across skincare, makeup, hair care, and more for the new season… but “spring” and “cluttered beauty collection” don’t exactly go together. So take this opportunity to get a head start on spring cleaning, and store your winter faves — like heavy moisturizers and dark, moody lipsticks — to make room for these 31 new beauty products for March 2019.
The month’s most buzz-worthy skincare launches involve clean ingredients that deliver scientifically-proven results, giving “spring cleaning” a whole new meaning. For example, the just-released Squalane and Tea Tree Detox Mask from Biossance simultaneously hydrates and balances oily skin with a combination of naturally-derived squalane and tea tree oils, and Krave Beauty Great Barrier Relief Serum relies on tamanu oil to heal compromised skin barriers — making it the perfect post-winter product.
For makeup and manis, expect bright, floral-inspired shades to replace winter's neutrals. MAC’s forthcoming Boom Boom Bloom Collection (launching Mar. 4) calls to mind cherry blossoms in bloom with pretty pink and peach palettes, while Essie's spring 2019 collection will have your nails covered in pastel shades of rose and lilac.
Finally, it’s time to retire that ear-warming beanie and let your hair take center stage again. Slather on Kinky-Curly’s latest, Seriously Smooth Swift Set Lotion, to lock in some much-needed moisture, then spritz with OUAI’s new rose-scented oil spray for shine.
Ahead, 31 beauty buys for March — one for every day of the month, naturally — that deserve a spot in your spring routine.
Squalane and Tea Tree Detox Mask
Biossance pairs its star ingredient, squalane oil, with deep-cleaning tea tree oil for a mask that absorbs buildup without leaving skin stripped.
Power Calm Hydrating Gel Cleanser
Peach & Lily
K-beauty brand Peach & Lily is changing the cleansing game with Power Calm, a blend of sulfate-free cleansing agents (coco-glucoside and tea-cocoyl glutamate) to tackle the day's oil, dirt, and grime in the gentlest way; and calming ingredients like chamomile and centella asiatica (aka, tiger grass) to preserve the skin's moisture levels.
Great Barrier Relief
The barrier-protecting theme continues with Great Barrier Relief, a calming serum from Krave Beauty. It helps heal compromised skin, irritated by cold winter weather or overzealous exfoliation, with regenerative tamanu oil and gentle-but-brigthening niacinamide.
After Acid Serum
Chances are, you already have an exfoliating acid (or five) in your skincare collection. This month, add the After Acid Serum from brand-new brand Bejbiskin to your routine. It contains fatty acids (from flax seed oil and chia seed oil) alongside plumping ceramides and peptides to restore skin's balance post-exfoliation.
Cosmic Glow Oil
Nothing says spring like this vibrant shade of green, right? It comes from a combination of golden botanical oils, like camellia and chamomile, mixed with calming blue tansy essential oil — a mixture that makes for an out-of-this-world glow.
Watermelon Glow Ultra-Fine Mist
If you're obsessed with Glow Recipe's cult-favorite Watermelon Mask (and who isn't?), here's some good news: It now comes in a mist version that you can use any time, anywhere to give your skin a hit of hydrating watermelon extract and hyaluronic acid.
Quinoa + Baobab - Sculpting & Strengthening Mascara
Everybody's favorite healthy grain makes its way into your beauty routine this month care of this clean, quinoa-spiked mascara. The substance serves to thicken, condition, *and* strengthen lashes.
Hydro Grip Primer
Available on Mar. 8, the latest product in Milk Makeup's CBD-infused range is a primer that promises to keep skin hydrated and makeup in place, thanks to the power of hemp-derived cannabis seed extract.
Boom Boom Bloom Lipstick
Retire winter's brownish-nude lipstick in favor of an in-your-face floral shade, like Tsk Tsk from MAC's forthcoming Boom Boom Bloom collection, available online on Mar. 4.
Proof Is In The Pudding Eyeshadow Palette
Go-with-everything neutrals enhanced by subtle sparkle? Yes, please. Shades like Rice Pudding, Butterscotch’d, and Spiced Caramel make this the perfect palette for spring.
Out Of The Blue Vanity Blush Palette
This blush is more than just pretty — it actually helps protect your skin from damaging blue light with an infusion of Xanthophyll, a sunscreen-esque ingredient that blocks the blue light energy emitted from your phone and laptop screens.
Lip Lacquer Luxe
Not all great lipsticks come in bullet form. In fact, the doe-tip applicator of Tom Ford’s new Lip Lacquer Luxe makes for more precise application, whether you decide to go matte or high-shine (there are 10 shades of each finish).
Seriously Smooth Swift Set Lotion
The brand recommends using Seriously Smooth Swift Lotion to create twist outs and Bantu knots — the hydrating blend of argan oil and jojoba oil adds moisture *and* keeps curls and coils in place.
Weightless Volumizing Conditioner
This just-launched conditioner is nothing short of a hair care miracle: It adds intense hydration (thanks to aloe and sunflower extracts) but doesn't weigh hair down. The result? Healthy, high-volume strands.
Hair & Body Shine Mist
The latest in OUAI's dual-action lineup is Hair & Body Shine Mist, an aerosol spray formulated with diamond powder, amaranth oil, and squalane oil to give hair (and body) subtle shimmer — so you can "shine like glass from your hair to your ass," as the brand says.
Roses In Bloom 1" Flat Iron
Why settle for a plain black straightening iron when you can have one covered in roses? The latest from CHI makes the tedious process of heat styling *that* much more bearable.
Gemstone Color Shampoo
R+Co x Coveteur
Upgrade your shower with this new collab from R+Co and Coveteur: The brand's classic formulas, like the Gemstone Color Shampoo, are reinvented with #shelfie-worthy packaging.
Beauty Bottle Multivitamin
Launching later this month, Movita's Beauty Bottle supplement supports healthy hair, skin, and nails with a feast of food-grade ingredients, like hemp seed (to plump) and turmeric (to reduce inflammation).
Citrine Infusion Effervescent Bath Tonic
Ready for the most relaxing bath *ever*? Mazz Hanna's new Bath Tonic includes 150 mg of organic CBD, lavender essential oil, and an infusion of citrine crystal to boost the healing vibes.
Agent Nateur's luxurious, holistic approach to body care evolves with Shave Oil, out Mar. 1. Expect a silky feel and a to-die-for scent.
Triple Action Hand Cream
Why should your face have all the fun? Treat your hands to this luxe new cream from Zelens, made with a healthy dose of Omega-3 and -6 fatty acids and brightening niacinamide to fight signs of aging.
Gucci Guilty Pour Femme Body Lotion
The sexy, floral scent of Gucci Guilty gets a seasonal makeover with Gucci Guilty Pour Femme, featuring a new oriental floral top note for added richness. Rendered in body lotion form, the blend of rose, violet, lilac, and patchouli lingers all day.
Hit "refresh" on Sephora.com on Mar. 21 — that's when Pinrose's latest scent, Mystical Mist, is launching... and you don't want to miss it. The fragrance is downright magical thanks to a mid-note of rose mixed with base notes of oak and patchouli.
Dark Waves Fragrance Gel
R+Co expands into perfumery with the Dark Waves Fragrance Gel, a romantic scent that can be applied to pulse points (or raked through your hair) for a hit of the hair care brand's signature fragrance.
Byredo colognes are famous for their odd-yet-intriguing names (examples: Bibliotheque and Elevator Music). But the brand's latest release, a reissue of a 2016 limited edition, simply goes by Unnamed... maybe because the scent profile of pink pepper and gin speaks for itself.
Nettle & Wild Achillea Cologne
Jo Malone London
Jo Malone London's spring offering, the Wild Flowers & Weeds collection, breathes new life into previously-ignored botanical notes — like nettle (a little tangy) and wild achillea (light and musky).
Floral Eau de Toilette
This ultra-feminine fragrance from Jimmy Choo just *smells* like spring. It features a blend of mandarin oil, magnolia, and blond wood and has a bright, energizing vibe.
Essie's spring 2019 range of pastels was introduced by none other than Lady Gaga at the Oscars in late February. The singer and actress sported the pinkish-nude Stirring Secrets on her nails — and now, it's available to the public.
Lazy Daze Butter Creme Polish
Is Dermelect's Lazy Daze Butter Creme the perfect almost-neutral to transition your mani from winter to spring? Yes. Yes, it is.
How Does Your Zen Garden Grow?
OPI's latest shade range is inspired by Tokyo. The best of the bunch is How Does Your Zen Garden Grow?, a light grass green polish that feels equal parts feminine and fashion-forward.
Sea Salt Pedi Pebble
A blend of hydrating shea butter and exfoliating sea salt makes Ulta's newest arrival a must-have for at-home pedicures.
