It’s no secret that life these days is pretty dull. Between lockdowns, stay-at-home orders, stores closing, etc., we’re all in search of ways to bring even a little bit of joy into our lives. If you ask me, one way that I impart a bit of joy into my day is by completing my skincare & beauty routine. Even if the only place I’m going is the mailbox, I’ll feel confident, put together, and balanced. Something as small as washing your face and doing your makeup has the power to put you in the right mindset for the day and while it’s certainly not a cure-all, I can’t recommend it enough, especially during these wild lockdown days here in TO. If you’re in need of a few new products to get you through, keep reading for some of the spring’s hottest and newest beauty launches.
Goop has done it again! This lotion is super lightweight but packs a major punch. In addition to being clean (a brand must), it leaves a stunning glow and skin looks and feels silky-soft, fresh, and radiant. If that’s not enough, you’ll instantly be enchanted by its delicate citrus and vetiver scent. It applies beautifully under makeup but also works perfectly in evening skincare routines as well.
Struggling with dark spots? Not any more thanks to Dermalogica’s newest addition. This superpowered serum works within days to help diminish dark spots thanks to special light-diffusing technology. You’ll notice the appearance of uneven pigmentation will have faded after just one use and will continue working wonders over time. The addition of Niacinamide and Hexylresorcinol work to fade dark spots while Shiitake Mushrooms that are rich in beta-glucans brighten skin.
Want fluffy supermodel-worthy brows? Who doesn’t! Now it’s easier than ever to achieve the brows of your dreams thanks to beauty pro Charlotte Tilbury. Charlotte’s Supermodel Brow Kit comes with everything you need to get a natural-looking brow with just a few flicks of the wrist. You’ll start by filling in with the eyebrow pencil of your choice, then go in with the micro precision tinted brow gel and then you’ll set it with the clear brow gel so your brows stay in place.
Last month Glossier blessed us with a chic new toiletry bag and now you can start filling it. The brand has just released their Cleanser Concentrate which is a clarifying facial wash that exfoliates and re-energizes the skin in just 60 seconds. In addition to being cruelty-free and vegan, this cleanser comes in a stunning glass bottle that’s recyclable.
Looking for a gorgeous glow that supermodel Miranda Kerr would approve of? All you need is her brand new Kora Organics Turmeric Glow Moisturizer. Likened to a pot of gold, this moisturizer promises a lit-from-within luminous look thanks to a custom blend of liposomes—turmeric, licorice, and noni fruit, as well as fermented probiotics and an array of oils. This baby is also refillable so you can feel good about repurchasing and helping to minimize waste.
After a drying winter, it’s time for a dose of hydration. The new Sol de Janeiro Bom Dia Bright Cream delivers not only major moisturizing power but also fruit AHAs and Vitamin C that reveals visibly brighter smoother skin. This cream is infused with rich notes of black amber plum and vanilla woods and that combined with its rich feel will make it one of the most-used items on your vanity.
Even if you’re barely leaving the house, sometimes our complexions just need a bit of help. Enter this brand new skin tint from Fenty Beauty that feels as light as air and comes in a whopping 25 shades. It’s already breaking the internet and selling out super fast and for good reason. Its transfer-resistant formula means you can wear it under your mask without smudging and it quickly and visibly evens out your complexion with a blurred effect.
Want to get an early-summer glow? Say hello to your new BFF.
