13 New March Beauty Products That Will Help You Get Ready for Spring
This winter has left my skin dull and flaky. My hair is dry and full of static, and all of the cold, gray days have left me seriously uninspired in the makeup department.
And yes, I know, we're in the homestretch of spring, but I'm going to keep complaining about winter until the season is officially over. In the meantime, I look at March as my post-winter recovery month, because I know all of my favorite beauty brands' new launches will help me get my skin, hair, and makeup ready for the longer, sunnier times ahead. And you know, get me to shut up about how it's still cold out.
With so many new products hitting the shelves this month, the struggle is figuring out which skincare, haircare, and makeup launches are worth spending your hard-earned cash on. That's why I've done the work for you by cherry-picking the best ones to add to your various online carts.
A few examples? RMS Beauty's Beauty Body Oil, a luxurious, nourishing oil inspired by the clean beauty brand's cult-favorite skincare product. Another great pick is True Botanicals' detoxing, yet hydrating face mask, plus Urban Decay's latest eyeshadow palette stacked with 10 of the brightest shades I've ever seen.
Ahead, the 13 best new beauty products to buy this month.
VIDEO: What Every Beginner Needs to Have in Their Makeup Kit
Tatcha The Liquid Silk Canvas: Featherweight Protective Primer
The easiest way to get silky soft skin, is using a product that actually contains silk proteins in it. Enter the liquid version of Tatcha's cult-favorite Silk Canvas primer. Along with the proteins, this oil-free formula contains botanical extracts. Together, these ingredients prevent pores from getting clogged and smooths over fine lines and wrinkles so that makeup goes on evenly. Celebrity makeup artist, Daniel Martin (he partnered with the brand for this launch) recommends using the primer to set your makeup because it will lock your look in place, plus absorb any excess oil without drying out your skin.
Nécessaire The Deodorant
There's never been more natural deodorant options out there, but not all of them are created equal. That being said, Nécessaire's aluminum-free stick is worth a try. Instead of baking soda, it's formulated with silica, zinc, and koalin clay to keep your underarms dry, while a blend of lactic and mandelic acids keep odor under contro. Plus, the brand's signature eucalyptus scent keeps you smelling fresh. And like the rest of Nécessaire's products, the deodorant's packaging is ridiculously good looking.
Shiseido Ultimate Sun Protector Lotion SPF 50+ Sunscreen
While most sunscreens need to be applied after swimming or getting sweaty, Shiseido's SPF actually starts to work better. The weightless, invisible lotion is formulated with a special technology that creates a stronger, more effective barrier against UV/UVA when skin gets hot or soaked from the pool. The SPF 50 lotion is also free of oxybenzone and octinoxate, and complies with Hawaii sunscreen regulations.
Urban Decay Wired Pressed Pigment Eyeshadow Palette
Nude eyeshadow for spring? Tired. Bold eye makeup? Wired. Like the name of this palette suggests, it's stocked with the brightest, boldest colors with shimmery and satin-matte finishes. Wear any of the shadows solo, or layer with the white shade to tone them down.
Rooted Rituals Ginger Root + Mint Pre-Shampoo Root Rinse
Let's get the facts straight: a good hair day starts at your roots. The key to healthy roots isn't just washing your hair with shampoo, but also treating your scalp so your skin is clear of excess oil and buildup. That's where this pre-shampoo spray comes in. Infused with ginger and mint, it cleans, strengthens, and soothes the scalp, so shampoo can come in and clean up the rest of the mess.
Marc Jacobs Beauty Glow Away Bronzing Coconut Body Stick
For those of us who do not emit a radiant glow like J.Lo, a shimmery body bronzer can help. Available in three shades, Marc Jacobs Beauty's waterproof bronzer illuminates and smooths skin. It's infused with five forms of coconut to keep skin extra hydrated, plus you'll smell like you've just took some PTO somewhere tropical.
Naturopathica Chlorophyll & Salicylic Acid Spot Treatment
A spot treatment might get that zit on your chin to shrink a little bit faster, but not all of them treat that dark spot that's still kicking around after it's gone. On top of acne-fighting salicylic acid, Naturopathica's treatment contains chlorophyll, which works to minimize the look of scars.
Ouai Shampoo for Fine Hair
Ouai's latest launch is a revamp of their shampoos. The collection includes three new-and-improved formulas catered to each hair type: fine, medium, and thick. For fine, flat hair, biotin, keratin, and chia seed oil work to reduce frizz, tame flyaways, and of course, add a ton of body. The shampoo is gluten-free, phthalate-free, paraben-free, and color-safe. All three shampoos have Ouai's Mercer Street scent, a fan-favorite blend of Italian lemon, Turkish rose, lily, iris, and white musk.
RMS Beauty Beauty Body Oil
If you wish you could slather from head-to-toe in your favorite skincare product, RMS Beauty is making your dreams a reality — at least, for anyone who's a fan of the clean beauty brand's cult-favorite Beauty Oil. The Body Oil is a mix of nourishing, hydrating oils like jojoba, coconut, and buriti that leaves skin soft and glowy.
Bumble and bumble Pret-a-Powder Post Workout Dry Shampoo Mist
Specifically made for sweaty hair (summer is coming!), this quick-dry mist refreshes hair and contains UV filters for sun protection.
True Botanicals Pacific Glacial Clay Detoxifying Mask
Love how squeaky clean your skin feels after a good clay mask, but hate how so many of them dry you out? Then this True Botanicals mask deserves a spot in your medicine cabinet. Along with detoxifying glacial oceanic clay and bamboo charcoal, the formula contains MSM, a collagen building block that hydrates and reduces inflammation, which can cause premature signs of aging.
Moroccanoil Smooth Styling Ceramic Heated Brush
Instead of struggling with a paddle brush and a blow dryer, use a heated brush instead. The cool ceramic tip bristles heat quickly to minimize heat exposure, while the heated beveled edges make it easy to work on areas close to the root.
Supergoop! Glowscreen Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 40
On top of a glowy, not greasy finish, Supergoop!'s hydrating, SPF 40 sunscreen doubles as a makeup primer. Bonus: Thanks to cocoa peptides, the formula also shields skin from the blue light emitted from your iPhone and computer.
