Spring has sprung at Sephora, where glowy, hydrated skin and waterproof makeup are trending for April 2018. With warmer weather around the corner here in California, I've already shifted toward "no makeup" makeup looks and am bare-faced most days of the week. I'm focusing a lot more on skincare these days because having clean, radiant skin feels SO nice!

These new beauty products are right up my alley and I'm so excited about them! Here are some new releases I think you all will love.

This list is organized by release date. Make sure to sign up for email notifications at Sephora.com to get notified when these products launch!

Shirin's Tip: If you're new to Drunk Elephant, I highly recommend investing in their The Littles kit, which comes with 8 mini products and allows you to develop your own skincare routine. They offer approximately a 30- to 45-day supply. I tried them out for a week on camera (it's been two weeks now) and my skin has been glowing and clearing up so quickly! I'm obsessed with Drunk Elephant.
