April was a month of TLC when it came to our beauty routines. As we gear up for summer and all the warm adventures that await us, we've found ourselves indulging in products that really know how to nourish our skin, hair, body, and souls.

We're talking about the ultimate multi-tasking foundation that provides coverage and skin benefits. There's a luxe serum, powered by actual tomatoes, that leaves skin bright and plump. And, if you're working with hair damage, there's a solution for that, too. Bottom line? We've found something to fill every beauty need out there.

So if you're looking for something to step up your self-care moment or just want to try something new this season, we've got you covered. See below for the six beauty products we're loving this April.

Saltair Santal Bloom Nourishing Body Oil

April Beauty Editor's Picks


To Shop: $20;

I've been praying to the beauty gods for my favorite scent from Saltair to come as a body oil — and my requests have finally been answered. Santal Bloom smells like a warm, floral embrace and is made with notes of rose, jasmine, and sandalwood. The oil itself is also super-nourishing and contains ingredients like squalane, fermented saururus, and a mix of plant actives to give skin hydration. It absorbs into skin quickly, leaving it soft and radiant. Hands down, it's my new go-to body product. —Audrey Noble, beauty editor

April Beauty Editor's Picks

To Shop: $108;

I'm pregnant with my first baby, so Ellis Brooklyn — the clean fragrance line founded by beauty veteran Bee Shapiro when she was pregnant — has been in my rotation lately. I've been loving this up-front floral scent, from the in-your-face fuchsia bottle to the bright, heady mix of bergamot, gardenia, and honeysuckle notes. It's a celebration of all things feminine, and smells like I smashed my face into a freshly picked a good way. —Deanna Pai, contributing beauty editor

Byroe New York Tomato Serum

April Beauty Editor's Picks


To Shop: $150;

I’m all about nourishing skincare these days, and right now, this tomato-based serum is my go-to for instant hydration. The feel is incredibly luxurious (not that it matters from an efficacy perspective) and the tomato-red color also just makes me happy. Plus, the skin-plumping promise is very real — I find myself reaching for this when I need an instant boost. Consider this my little luxury for the month. —Madeline Hirsch, news director

Skinceuticals A.G.E. Interrupter Advanced Anti-Wrinkle Cream

April Beauty Editor's Picks

To Shop: $185;

Since retinoids and injectables are both off-limits during pregnancy, I've been on the hunt for formulas that can keep my forehead lines and crows' feet in check. Enter this update on the brand's original A.G.E. Interruptor. It targets the process of glycation in skin (which turns collagen brittle and breaks it down) to firm and smooth it in a matter of weeks. It's so good that I plan to keep it in my lineup even once I'm cleared for Botox. —D.P.

Wella Professionals Ultimate Repair Miracle Hair Rescue

April Beauty Editor's Picks


To Shop: $95;

Admittedly, I put my long hair through a lot when testing countless products and styling nonstop, so it's been in desperate need for some TLC. I cannot thank this new repair treatment enough for reviving my strands. It contains a blend of alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) and omega-9 fatty acids to treat damage from inside the hair out. Simply spritz on damp hair, style as usual, and you'll instantly find your hair look shinier and feel softer. —A.N.

Saie Glowy Super Skin Weightless Hydrobounce Serum Foundation

April Beauty Editor's Picks

Sephora / Saie

To Shop: $40;

Who doesn't love a multi-tasking product? Saie's newest foundation not only offers medium coverage to even out skin, but is also packed with skincare ingredients (like squalane and polyglutamic acid) to boost hydration and plump. The best part is its radiant finish: It gives me the dewy glow of my dreams. As someone who usually stays away from foundation, this has become a very quick fave. —A.N.
