With spring finally upon us—and the deadline for spring-cleaning steadily approaching—it only makes sense to clean out that dopp kit of yours too, which is, by this point, likely full of nearly empty, rich creams made for cold weather and dry skin. This spring, clean out that toiletry case (or bathroom shelf up) and restock with this season’s most innovative, luxurious, and utilitarian products.
The beauty industry has never been more innovative, thanks in large part to the cutting-edge techniques and formulations coming out of places like South Korea and Scandinavia. (Interested in Scandinavian beauty? Read here.) Masks of any kind—more on that, here— have never been more popular. Natural beauty is becoming more, well, natural, and there have been implementations to regulate the many dubious ingredients that lie in many of our most beloved products. People want to know what’s going on their faces, into their lips, and which ingredient in mascara is making their eyes red and itchy. Beauty aficionados around the world are become not only more obsessed, but more informed about the many new products we find ourselves intrigued by each day.
These days, every beauty brand—from little to larger-than-life—is trying to keep up with the latest, seemingly never endless trends in beauty. What’s hot this season? We’ve got 3D brow palettes (and semi-permanent tinted brow gel), oil-based lip tints (in mini cocktail shakers, nonetheless), eye tapping devices, and even essence for your hair. Masks, serums, and moisturizers continue to rule the skincare world, so don’t worry—we’ve got a few game-changing formulas of the classics, too. Scroll on for our ultimate round up of the must-have beauty products this spring (and for all the men reading this, we've even got a few for you).
