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.
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.
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.
