March is an exciting time for beauty, and not just because Ulta's 21 Days of Beauty Sale is kicking off next week. It's not even because some truly exciting hair, makeup, and skincare products have hit Amazon's virtual shelves (more on that in a minute). To us, March is an exciting time for beauty because it's one of those transitional months in which one season imperceptibly melds into another. This is, after all, the month that's best known for the old saying "In like a lion, out like a lamb." What starts out as a blustery and cold continuation of winter will leave with warm winds and spring blooms.
That means, in the realm of beauty, we treat it like a free-for-all—we can stay in tune with the preceding months and opt for dark and moody colors or we can metaphorically spring ahead to play with bright pastel shades. One day we can fall back on old and comforting wintry styles, the next we can experiment with new products and trends.
This duality is reflected in Amazon's new beauty selection. New products have just dropped: Some are hydrating skincare products that are perfect for curing dry winter skin, others are bright makeup products made to make their users look ahead to spring and summer. Keep scrolling to see each exciting new Amazon beauty product we're shopping in March.
One of the first skincare products listed on Amazon's new releases page is this vegan and cruelty-free vitamin C serum from the brand Mad Hippie. Aside from the brightening and antioxidant-offering vitamin, it also contains konjac root, hyaluronic acid, and ferulic acid, all of which work together to tighten, smooth, and brighten the skin.
Moroccanoil's dry shampoo is lightweight and silky, so it doesn't leave that white residue behind (which, by the way, is the bane of our existence). It does everything a dry shampoo is supposed to do ( refresh the hair, soak up excess oil, and provide some volume, too).
If you're looking for a new brow pencil, try this one which was just stocked on Amazon. It's one of our all-time favorites, thanks to the slim, retractable packaging and the range of taupe-y shades that look incredibly natural in our brows.
This leave-in conditioner is formulated with keratin protein to support the hair's strength and length. Use it right out of the shower to detangle and prep your hair for heat styling (its heat protectants will keep your strands protected from breakage and split ends).
Anyone who has an ounce of blonde in their hair (even if it's just a couple of highlights here and there), know how quickly it can turn brassy. It happens from exposure to sunlight, certain hair products, and hard water. This purple toning shampoo removes unwanted orange tones to reveal the bright and icy blonde underneath.
It's no secret that charcoal is a buzzy beauty ingredient as of late, especially when it comes to oral care, since it boasts serious whitening powers. Crest's new toothpaste uses the dark gray ingredient to whiten surface stains, while fluoride maintains enamel strength.
We love a good drugstore beauty buy. This Neutrogena serum belongs to the brand's Hydro Boost line, which uses hyaluronic acid as its star ingredient. Apply it before moisturizer to give the skin a power shot of hydration (and smoothness, thanks to vitamin E).
This Japanese toner-lotion hybrid uses sake (Japanese rice wine) to hydrate, soothe, smooth, and brighten the skin all at once. Simply deposit a pump or two into the palm of your hand, press your hands together, then press it gently into your skin. Customers say it works wonders, one writing that her skin's condition improved drastically since using it.
Remember how we were talking all about seasonal transitions, particularly in regards to winter and spring? This eyeshadow palette is the perfect encapsulation of that. Its bevy of dark and moody jewel tones are punctuated with light pops of yellow, peach, and lavender.
This lip serum helps to increase lip volume, moisture, and smoothness, thanks to a synthetic neuropeptide that mimics an enzyme found in snake venom (yes, really). Use it on aging, thin, or dull lips to see a visible improvement in fine lines and plumpness.
If you're like us, you crave makeup wipes for removing stubborn eye makeup, yet leave it to a cleansing balm or oil to get the rest of your base makeup off. If that's the case, we recommend trying out these makeup removing pads, which are made specifically for the eye area. They remove even waterproof makeup while smoothing the skin's texture with vitamin B5 and E.
L'Oréal's concealer is full-coverage and matte, so it's perfect for anyone with acne-prone and/or oily skin (because, let's be honest, some of those low-coverage radiant concealer just don't cut it sometimes). It's also waterproof, which is something you don't see too often in a concealer. Consider this your new heavy duty base makeup product.
