15 New Beauty Products That'll Make You Look Forward to Spring
We're finally in the homestretch.
With most of the winter behind us, it's feels reasonable to actually get excited about spring now.
The days are getting longer, brighter, and of course, slightly warmer, and beauty brands are feeling it, too. At least, I think they are based on the new launches that are dropping this month.
With many of us still choosing sweats over real pants, Gucci's seasonal jewel-tone eyeliners will standout on Zoom calls. Peace Out's first cleanser is powered by ingredients for acne-prone skin, which will inevitably come in handy when dealing with maskne. And Philosophy's one-step cleanser is perfect for those nights when you're just too exhausted to double cleanse after being inside all day.
Ahead, we've done the cherry-picking for you and rounded up the 15 best new beauty products launching in March 2021.

Davines Heart of Glass Intense Treatment
Platinum blonde hair often gets called out for being delicate, but the reality is that all shades of blonde hair, both natural and dyed, is prone to breakage and fading.

The Intense Treatment is a strengthening rinse-off mask that's applied to damp, clean hair once a week (or more if hair is severely damaged).
