15 Celebratory Spring Beauty Buys (Because Winter is FINALLY Over)
After months of complaining about cold temps and never-ending rain, spring is finally, joyously here. There are birds in the sky, an influx of baby animal videos on YouTube, and denim cut-offs in store. In short, this season is already shaping up to be everything we've been looking forward to. While spring cleaning is something we bet Mari Kondo would recommend, we're ignoring the junk room in favour of our beauty bags. As we begin the journey into warmer weather we're sprucing up our beauty regimes, and giving everything from shampoo to sunscreen a makeover. You too? You'll be pleased to note that September has brought with it a whole host of covetable new beauty products—buys so delightful they'll help you forget you were ever in hibernation. From the most luxe facial glitter we've seen to your new favourite cleansing cloths, keep scrolling for this month's best new launches.
The most delightful shade of cornflower blue, this luxe polish is inspired by the always stylish, forever cool denim jacket. Think of it as a spring neutral—you'll be surprised at how seamlessly it blends with just about your entire wardrobe.
This product launches on September 11.
Smashbox Colour Correcting Stick in Look Less Tired Dark and Light ($34)
Despite the obvious benefits, I've never been big into colour correcting...until now. These brightening sticks are simple to use, easy to blend, and visibly erase under-eye bags. Even better, there's a shade for both fair-medium and medium-deep skin tones so everyone can get amongst.
La Prairie Skin Caviar Essence-in-Lotion ($300)
Containing a potent ingredient called "caviar water" obtained via steam distillation, this luxe essence represents the brand's most powerful anti-ageing technology to date. The complexion-perfecting infusion you've been missing, it helps to firm and refine skin without weighing it down.
African Botanics Baobab Clay Oxygenating Cleanser ($89)
Possibly the lushest clay face wash you'll ever use, it's not drying or irritating in the slightest. Packed with good stuff like antioxidant-rich green rooibos tea, it nourishes and softens while it cleanses.
This product launches on September 27.
Clarisonic Mia Fit ($315)
If you're already acquainted with the refining benefits of Clarisonic's cleansing devices, you're bound to love the brand's new launch as much as I do. Perfectly palm-sized, it has two settings (one of which is extra gentle) for a custom cleanse, and is able to be charged via USB. (Handy.)
Zoeva Concealer Spectrum Palette ($39)
It might be labelled a concealer palette but this collection of skin-perfecting creams can also be used to contour, highlight and tweak the shade of your liquid foundation for a perfect colour match. We'd say pretty much makes it a must-have.
This product launches on September 12.
Comfort Zone Tranquility Blend ($109)
The first time I smelled this oil blend I asked if it came in a perfume, it's that good. An aromatic mix of orange blossom, cedar wood and palmarose, it has anti-stress effects that promote a sense of calm. Dab on your wrists or temples when you need to regroup.
