37 Editor-Approved Beauty Products For Spring 2022Sam Manns_Unsplash

Here at AEDIT, our motto is simple: Change of season, change of skincare and hair care, and makeup, and whatever other routines you would like to update. Long winter nights are behind us (yay!), but spring’s longer days don’t necessarily translate to consistent weather conditions. That alone can throw a monkey wrench into your beauty regimen because it can be hard to know what you’re trying to treat.

Depending on where you live, March may not be going out like a lamb. April showers, meanwhile, are often accompanied by cool, damp temps – and the dry, dull skin that can accompany them. By the time we reach May flowers, you’ll likely have your sights firmly set on a pre-summer glow-up.

So, whether you are trying to brighten a dull complexion, repair damaged hair, or freshen up your makeup kit, the market is full of innovative new moisturizers, masks, mascaras, and more. Keep reading for our editor-approved spring 2022 beauty picks!

Saint Jane Sacred Sleep Overnight Repair


Make the most of your beauty sleep with this potent P.M. moisturizer. Research shows that combining retinol with cannabidiol (CBD) can help mitigate the irritation and sensitization caused by retinol, which is why this formula pairs 0.5 percent retinol with a bouquet-worthy blend of flowers – including calming CBD and cannabigerol (CBG), soothing violet, antioxidant-rich elderberry, and detoxifying lavender. The result? A visibly plumper, smoother, and more toned complexion by morning. $70, saintjanebeauty.com

Youthforia Pregame Primer


Prior to launching this multitasking primer that will make a believer out of anyone who doesn’t value the prep step, Youthforia founder Fiona Chan continued her tradition of test driving new formulas by sleeping in them for months at a time to prove that it’s possible to formulate makeup that is good for the skin. The bio-based, silicone-free primer acts as a shield that protects skin from pollutants and irritating ingredients in makeup – while also ensuring your color cosmetics stay in place all day. $38, youthforia.co

Sio Cryo Fill


Whether you are due for a filler touch up or are looking for a needle-free alternative, this targeted treatment instantly ‘fills’ expression lines and folds. Exopolysaccharides boost moisture levels, while a hexapeptide locks them in for an instant plumping effect. But that’s not all. Amino acids, camellia japonica flower, and vitamin C join forces to brighten and revive, while purified oat extract soothes skin. The result? A visibly rejuvenated countenance. Reapply throughout the day to maintain results. $75, siobeauty.com

Kintsugi Awakening Mist Scalp Tonic


Co-founded by Beverly Hills-based board certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon John Layke, DO, the entire line is focused on healthy, shiny hair. In addition to conditioning and volumizing fine, limp locks, the scalp mist features a compound called Redensyl that has been shown to outperform minoxidil when it comes to improving hair density and fullness. $58, kintsugihair.com

27 Rosiers x Miss Fame Extra/Ordinaire Skin Illuminator Full Spectrum Collection


What happens when you combine the skin-boosting benefits of vitamin C and plant-based collagen with the most ethereal iridescent pigments?

RuPaul's Drag Race star Miss Fame teamed with the brand to create the three universally flattering gold, pink, and bronze hues. $88, credobeauty.com

Womaness Plump It Up Retinol Face Serum


The line specifically designed to address the skin, sleep, and sexual health concerns women face during menopause just introduced its inaugural retinol product.

Wear alone or with foundation – the options are endless. $32, jilliandempsey.com

Cyspera Intensive System


A more potent take on the dermatologist-approved pigmentation-fading system, this three-step kit works synergistically to improve skin tone and texture without hydroquinone.

The system is available without a prescription in dermatology offices nationwide. $265, us.cyspera.com

Peter Thomas Roth Pro Strength Stretch Mark Cream


Most stretch mark creams work by adding moisture to the affected area(s), but it’s often a temporary fix. This is different. The so-called Regu-Stretch complex includes seaweed and peptides to treat the root cause of visible stretch marks, while polyphenol-rich Regestril helps prevent future striae. Meanwhile, lactic acid, shea and cocoa butters, avocado oil, and ceramides work to improve skin tone and texture. In consumer testing, participants reported seeing improvement after just four weeks of targeted use. $58, sephora.com

ByRoe Golden Carrot Overnight Relief Mask
