One of the best things about my job is, obviously, the beauty products. Yes, I sometimes get frustrated with them for a multitude of reasons, but show me a loving relationship without a little up and down, and I wouldn't believe it was real! You can always rely on new beauty releases to send a buzz through the beauty industry. With its constant evolution and innovation, the beauty industry is an exciting place. Things like new formulations, new technologies and new ingredients all keep beauty consumers forever on their toes. Even new packaging can be enough to warrant a fancy dinner event or celebrity-promo circuit.

So with the new season comes an inevitable host of new beauty releases. Not all are born equal, of course, but it is very apt timing considering I'm about to schedule my annual spring beauty-bag clean-out, and my routine could do with some exciting—effective—new additions. It’s been a while since we could fully indulge in the thrill that comes with spring beauty releases, with lockdown restrictions having scuppered many plans for the past two years, but this year, we're lockdown-free, and to commemorate the occasion, the beauty industry has gone BIG. From advanced technology to first-of-their-kind formulas, here are 14 new beauty products that should be on your radar for spring 2022.

1. T3 Airebrush Duo

The biggest hair trend of the season, that I-just-got-a-blow-dry-by-an-incredible-hairdresser look, is here to stay. The sad reality is that regular blow-dries at the hairdressers quickly become an expensive luxury. Instead, I would like to introduce you to the T3 Airebrush Duo. The T3 hot airbrush gives the best at-home blow-dry. The tool is engineered with T3 IonFlow technology to deliver an ion-enriched airstream and boasts digitally controlled heat for a shiny, polished, frizz-free finish. Plus, it comes with an interchangeable brush design to suit your different hair needs and 15 heat and speed combinations for every hair type and texture.

2. Lazartigue Exfoliate Scalp Scrub

Scalpcare is where it’s at this season, and this vegan, jelly-textured scalp scrub works overtime. It is formulated with vegetable jojoba beads to remove impurities and fruit acids to act as a gentle exfoliating peel. Start your washday with an exfoliation to restore the scalp's optimal balance for healthier hair. 

3. Bobbi Brown Skin Corrector Stick

Everyone who knows a thing or two about beauty knows that the Bobbi Brown corrector concealers are the industry's top guns. The only downfall is the inconvenient packaging—that is until now! Bobbi Brown has launched its much-beloved concealer formula in a handy stick. For the slickest concealer application, and with a formula you can’t beat, make sure this offering is on your list.

4. CeraVe Hydrating Foaming Oil Cleanser

After what felt like years of hearing people in the U.S. rave about this foaming oil cleanser, it has finally landed in the UK. And I can confirm that it’s definitely worth the hype. Enriched with essential ceramides to help support the skin’s protective barrier and prevent transepidermal water loss, it’s unlike any oil cleanser you’ve used before. 

5. The Ordinary Hair Care Natural Moisturising Factors and HA

Stop what you’re doing. Renowned skincare brand The Ordinary has expanded its haircare range, and it was well worth the wait. Bringing all the benefits of skincare to hair, this formula contains two hero ingredients—hyaluronic acid and natural moisturising factors—to strengthen and combat dryness and damage to the moisture barrier.

6. Ren Clean Skincare Evercalm Barrier Support Elixir

The concept of barrier repair is very much having a moment in beauty, and rightly so. With a little too much experimentation with a number of products, our skin barriers are no doubt a little worse for wear. Created with nine unique bio-activities and a blend of seven oils to aid repair and strengthen, if there is one thing you do for your skin barrier this spring, let it be applying this elixir.

Available from 30 March 2022.

7. Jo Malone London Sea Daffodil Cologne

What’s spring without a new fragrance? Ditch your heavier notes for something a little lighter, fresher and cleaner. Created to replicate the fresh sea air of South Italy, this is spring in a bottle or at least springtime in Southern Italy. Unlike your typical floral scent, this offering is your perfect transitional fragrance. White sea daffodils, vetiver and ylang-ylang create an air of lightness and crispiness, which are beautifully balanced by base notes of deep vanilla and sandalwood.

8. Rose Inc Skin Enhance Tinted Serum

Is there anything that Rosie Huntington-Whiteley can't do? The latest release from her brand Rose Inc combines the powers of makeup and skincare to create a product that will get you through spring. Essentially, it's a luminous tinted serum—part moisturiser to offer hydration and part skin tint to offer the most glorious radiant coverage.

9. Pacifica Wake Up Beautiful Retinoid Eye Cream

Whether or not you need an eye cream is one of the biggest debates in the beauty industry. If you're on team eye cream, vegan brand Pacifica has developed a supercharged formula packed with a trio of hero ingredients, including retinoid, melatonin and mushroom to help liven up the eye area. You're bound to love it.

Available from 18 March 2022. 

10. Pai Resurrection Girl Hydrating Mask

Keep your skin in check with the new Pai Resurrection Girl Hydrating Mask. Not only is the mask a dream to use, but the ultra-cool gel-like formula also works to revive dull, dry and irritated skin. It is powered by ingredients from the resurrection plant, nature’s best-kept secret for intense hydration and keeping dryness at bay.

11. Réduit Boost

Réduit has come to revolutionise your skincare game. This clever gadget gives you high-grade skincare action and also offers a customised routine matched to your skin's needs. It works with your skincare products and pushes product right into the deeper levels of the skin. Apply your product as normal, and use the device to massage in for more effective absorption. It's designed with waveform technology to allow your products to absorb deeper, faster and without waste for a more effective skincare routine. 

12. Neom Super Shower Power Shampoo and Conditioner

Who doesn't love a shampoo-and-conditioner duo? Buying them together makes things a lot simpler, and I'm all about the easy route. Neom has branched into haircare to release its Super Shower Power Shampoo and Conditioner. If you’re a fan of the brand's minty and much-loved Super Shower Power Body Cleanser, you will adore this duo. Sharing the same iconic scent of spearmint, rosemary and eucalyptus essential oils as the body cleanser, this duo will make sure washing your hair never feels like a chore ever again.

Available from 28 March 2022. 

13. Jones Road Miracle Balm in Flushed 

Meet your new spring blush—a gorgeous sheer, luminous wash of warm-toned pink. Apply with fingers for that gorgeous flush. It's super sheer and lightweight, meaning there's no chance of overdoing it—more is more in this case.

14. Bed of Nails Acupressure Strap

Covered with 1848 plastic nails, the Bed of Nails Acupressure Strap is an incredible tool for releasing tension and relaxation. Don't be frightened off by the nails; they’re not as sharp as they look! This handy tool has been designed so that you can strap it around your aching areas to help ease tension, release endorphins and stimulate oxytocin to help you stay calm and relaxed. I’d say it's a pretty good spring investment.

15. Mirror Water Buff Body Exfoliator 

Gone are the days of your basic harsh body scrubs—indulge in this gorgeous gel-like formula. Formulated with refining salts and shea nut powder, the varying textures of the main scrub components ensure a more efficient all-over body exfoliation for summer-ready skin. It is also infused with notes of vetiver, cedarwood, Canadian black spruce and bergamot for an at-home-spa feel.
