I am so happy that spring is finally here.
With the new season comes the onslaught of new beauty products. The new makeup, skin care, body care and hair care launches are a plenty; I am thrilled to have jumped right in to spring product testing.
You may have noticed a few of my recent spring makeup reviews like the MAC Boom Boom Bloom Collection, IT Cosmetics Confidence in a Foundation and NARS Lipglosses, but I have been holding back on a lot of the new skin care launches.
It takes a lot of time to test skin care and a lot of it is just out now.
I felt it right to tell you — or tease you — with what’s out and hot in skin care for spring. I can tell you about the few things that I have tried and what’s on tap.

Here are 10 new skin care products to look for this spring.
IT Cosmetics Confidence In A Cream Rosy Tone
This new moisturizer from IT Cosmetics may look similar to the original Confidence in a Cream but in a new pink color, but it is very different from the original beside the rosy tone. Confidence In A Cream Rosy Tone is a revitalizing cream that exfoliates the skin (gently) as it is chock full of hydrating ingredients, too. Along with the skin-loving rosy tone pigments that instantly give skin a natural glow, the ingredients like peony extract and lipohydroxy acid help to stimulate surface cell renewal for a mouth youthful appearance.
I’ve only used this new moisturizer for a few weeks and my skin is LOVING it. I have been alternating this with the new Gel Lotion (below) and it is a great combination. It helps to rid skin of the dull layers that have built up over winter and awaken it while keeping things plump and hydrated.
Origins Plantscription Retinol Night Moisturizer
For nighttime, I am all about a gentle retinol, and Origins new Plantscription Retinol Night Moisturizer is the perfect nighttime addition for spring. This new moisturizer is made with pure, high-grade Retinol to help diminish the look of pores, fine lines and deliver a more even skin tone. I have also only been using this Retinol Night Moisturizer for a few weeks and so far, so good. My skin is feel so much smoother, especially on my neck where it has been feeling extra rough lately. I have not experienced any extra dryness or flakiness that I can sometimes experience with a retinol product; it seems to be quite gentle, yet effective. I can’t wait to see more results as I continue to use it. The longer you use it, the better the results, of course.

Pixi Beauty DetoxifEYE
Eye patches are great for depuffing and Pixi Beauty did a great job with these new DetoxifEYE hydrogel eye patches. They not only decrease puffiness, they leave my eyes feeling so refreshed. They are made with cucumber and gold.
Sunday Riley Captain Marvel X Good Genes Lactic Acid Treatment
Good Genes is not a new product, but the special limited edition product Captain Marvel X Good Genes is. Available for a limited time only, this superhero serum does a fantastic job of prepping skin for spring with lactic acid, which is the most gentle AHA My skin LOVES lactic acid, as it is hydrating as it exfoliates. Not only does it help to do away with excess sebum and dull, dead layers of skin, it helps stop it from forming in the first place.
SkinCeuticals Glycolic 10 Renew Overnight
This is another nighttime treatment that you WILL NOT use with the above retinol moisturizer (mixing a glycolic with a retinol is a no-no) but it works in a corrective way to reactivate cellular turnover. It is an effective active 10% free glycolic acid which is a potent free acid value plus 2% phytic acid to break up cellular cohesions. I know that this sounds like a lot of skin care mumbo jumbo, so let me break it down to say this. With just a very short time of use, this 10% overnight treatment will unglue the layers on top and right beneath the visible layers of your skin to give your skin a more even texture with a visible improvement in tone and fine lines all while making skin glow.
What I have really liked about Glycolic 10 Renew Overnight is that it works fairly quickly. I could feel the difference after the first time that I used this treatment and I could start to see the difference after less than a month of using it.
IT Cosmetics Confidence In A Gel Lotion
This unique gel lotion really surprised. My skin is very dry and I typically like a heavier moisturizer to hydrate my skin. As I have really liked a lot of the IT Cosmetics’ skin care products, I knew that I was going to have to give it a good solid try. This gel lotion is very weightless and almost feels like water as soon as I apply it to my skin. What is unique, is that it actually hydrates my skin as much as Confidence In A Cream does and has it left feeling as smooth and smooth, too. What is surprising, is that is seems to last longer.
Confidence In A Gel Lotion is formulated with glycerin to give it the slip that I am liking, plus cactus flower extract plus Tri-Smooth Water Gel Complex. If you are looking for a lightweight moisturizer that seriously hydrates the skin ALL DAY and does things primes the skin while leaving glowing and radiant for spring, try this for daytime.
Pixi Beauty Glycolic Boost
If you have a little spring fling coming up and need a glow boost, this is your ticket. This sheet mask mixes glycolic acid, ginseng and witch hazel to instantly refresh, rejuvenate and boost your glow in a short amount of time. Put them in the fridge for an extra refreshing boost.
Sunday Riley C.E.O. Glow Vitamin C + Turmeric Face Oil
I’ve been loving on face oils this winter but as we head to spring, I am not ready to give them up anytime soon. This is not your ordinary face oil either. Sure, it absorbs easily, but it is formulated with stable Vitamin C plus turmeric and evening primrose oil to soothe the skin.Skin is left bright (a them with most of these spring skin care products) hydrated and smooth.
Peter Thomas Roth Peptide21 Wrinkle Resist Serum
Putting my best face forward is always the goal, but especially as I emerge after a long, cold winter. I am looking for new ways to battle my fine lines and wrinkles and that is just what this new serum is designed to do. Formulated with a 73% complex and an astounding 21 Peptides and Neuropeptides PLUS 2 Gamma Proteins, this is a revolutionary wrinkle-fighting serum. The ingredients work to target every area of the face and neck, helping to not only visibly reduce the look of fine lines, and wrinkles but to help improve skins elasticity, radiance, tone and texture.
Derma E Advanced Peptides & Collagen Moisturizer
As with the product above, this peptide moisturizer gets to the heart of fine lines and wrinkles with its formula. And this formula is new and improved. Formulated with multi-peptides, Matrixyl® synthe’6® and Argireline ®, this revolutionary, double-action moisturizer helps to visibly soften and smooth the look of even the deepest wrinkles. It also includes plant extract Pycnogenol®, a powerful antioxidant, to help support healthy collagen.
