Hold onto your umbrellas, it's officially spring. After spending most of the winter indoors, this much-needed break from cold weather has us dancing in the rain—not literally, but you get the point. With a change in season, comes a change in our beauty routines (hello, SPF!), so what better time to check out the best new products on the beauty horizon? Ahead, we’ve put together a comprehensive list of our favorite hair, skin, makeup, fragrance, and wellness releases this April.
Codex's Radiance Mist ($63) contains AHAs for gentle exfoliation, and their Brightening Serum ($95) contains Hibiscus to smooth lines. They're the newest additions to their Antü collection, made with a proprietary blend of hyaluronic acid and Patagonian Maqui, Matico, and Murtilla, to boost your glow and calm inflammation. The Antü line is a Byrdie favorite, and won a 2021 Eco Beauty Award for Best Night Cream.
Verb is the latest hair care company to introduce a cleaner alternative to nourishing your tresses. On April 27, the popular brand will be releasing its first 100% natural/clean must-have, Moringa + Jojoba Treatment Oil ($18).
Formulated with three simple ingredients—moringa oil, jojoba oil, and vitamin E—the treatment oil promises to hydrate, smooth, and mitigate signs of damage on the hair shaft.
Created under its Waste-Not Sourcing Initiative, Circumference recently launched its Daily Regenerative Gel Cleanser ($48) that gently removes impurities from your skin while replacing it with the healing benefits of compounds, antioxidants, and bioactive from olive and grape leaf extracts. The results? Skin that’s beautifully radiant.
We can finally enjoy carbonated drinks without wreaking havoc on our bodies! Infused with apple cider vinegar, Poppi’s Classic Cola ($30/12 pack) offers all the amazing digestive health benefits you’d expect from the ingredient, but with the added bonus of plant-based sweeteners and lots of bubbles.
Create a soothing atmosphere with the Saje Aroma Rise ($92). Besides the benefits of a diffuser—including improving sleeping, breathing, and air quality—this limited-edition diffuser provides the perfect mood for unwinding after a long day.
The arrival of spring and summer means we're reaching for sunscreen more than ever. To keep your skin protected, Sunday Riley recently released an innovative Light Hearted Broad Spectrum SPF 30 ($35) that combines the advantages of chemical sunscreens while doing away with undesirable ingredients and unattractive white residue.
Say hello to radiant skin with KORA Organic's Turmeric Glow Moisturizer ($58). The nourishing and ultra-hydrating moisturizer directly targets hyperpigmentation, dullness, fine lines, and wrinkles. We especially love the addition of licorice extract and rosehip oil to keep our skin bright and healthy.
Looking to treat yourself this month? Let us introduce you to the niLuu Vegan Silk Mini Kimono Robe ($580). Perfect for your next self-care Sunday, the luxe garment not only looks good, but it also serves as an anti-aging accessory thanks to the protective qualities of vegan silk.
Who knows, the stylish kimono may even become your favorite look for those impromptu Zoom calls.
Kjaer Weis has done it again. The brand's new Matte, Naturally Liquid Lipstick ($30) is a weightless and long-wear lipstick that promises to keep your lips hydrated all day thanks to the addition of cold-pressed sunflower, jojoba, castor seed oils, shea butter, and hyaluronic acid.
When it comes to removing your daily glam, a cleansing routine, unfortunately, doesn’t automatically guarantee flawless results. To address this problem, Cover FX designed its one-step Future Perfect Water-Optional Cleanser ($32) featuring naturally-derived ingredients—which include grapefruit, cucumber, chamomile extracts, and vitamin E— to gently dissolve makeup and wash away impurities.
Colleen Rothschild Beauty
The last thing we want to stress about is our skin health. With that being said, you bet that news of a beauty product that protects against environmental stressors had us rejoicing.
Colleen Rothschild Beauty recently launched its Black Tourmaline Face Primer ($44) that prepares and primes skin for smooth makeup application and acts as a protective shield against pollutants thanks to black gemstone powder. The face primer is also enriched with black truffle, which minimizes the presence of pores and wrinkles.
Petite 'n Pretty

Featuring the brand’s coveted cleanser and moisturizer, the Get Up and Glow Travel Skincare Set ($20) is just what you need to remove dirt and grease from your face. It also revitalizes your skin with lightweight moisture.
With so much going on in the world, it hasn't been easy to restore a semblance of normalcy to our bedtime routine. However, catching up on our beauty slumber is a lot simpler with Sleep Well Gummies ($47).
Promising to restore your sleeping habits, Pachamama created a special formula featuring a unique blend of CBN, CBD, melatonin, and elderberry extract for a good night’s sleep with an extra boost of immunity.
Our latest lip product obsession is MINERALIST Lip Gloss-Balm ($20). This bareMinerals must-have rethinks how we achieve our kissable pout by using sustainably sourced fruit oils to guarantee softer and more hydrated lips after one week of use. We can't think of a better excuse to try it.
Eight Saints Skincare
We're all about getting the most out of our self-care routine, which is why Island Time Body Spray Lotion ($29) by Eight Saints Skincare excites us. Requiring less than 30-seconds for application, the spray lotion is specially crafted with natural ingredients—including coconut oil, jojoba oil, and vitamin E— to easily penetrate the skin for 24-hour moisture and anti-aging benefits.
NYX Professional Makeup
Masks have altered how we express ourselves through makeup. As we all work together to stop the spread of COVID-19, more beauty experts are getting creative with eye-catching shadows and liners.
In keeping with the times, NYX Professional Makeup has just released a waterproof semi-permanent liner with 36-hour wear and an ultra-fine, flexible brush tip. We'd be remiss if we didn't mention that Epic Wear Metallic Liquid Liner ($10) is available in six shiny, hyper-metallic reflective shades that don’t crack, bleed or fade!
On April 13, StackedSkincare’s wildly popular Cryotherapy Ice Roller ($75) is getting a facelift (pun intended). The new egg-shaped rolling barrel soothes hard-to-reach spots, while the stainless steel design helps decrease swelling and general discomfort.
LAKE & SKYE

Herbivore's newest addition to the Pink Cloud line is made with Tremella mushroom, a superfood and hyaluronic acid alternative that can hold up to 500 times its weight in water. The Cloud Jelly Serum ($48) targets dryness and dullness, with active ingredients like vegan collagen and strawberry extract.
Common Heir brings us the first plastic-free Vitamin C experience. Their biodegradable capsules are OECD 301F-certified, which means that they'll break down naturally and quickly. What's more, neither the plant-based packaging nor the product inside will harm the ocean. The formula also uses Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate (THD)—a gentler Vitamin C derivative than L-ascorbic acid—to give even the most sensitive a healthy glow.
The Silk Labs
It's time to make the switch from harsh hair elastics to soft silk. With the new Matcha Silk Scrunchie ($10) from The Silk Labs, you can easily reduce friction that leads to damaged split ends. What's more, the Toronto-based business promises to plant one tree for every $100 spent in honor of Earth Day on April 22.
