Shiny hair and bright skin were the trends of the red carpet season, popping up on the likes of Emma Stone, Amy Adams, and Nicole Kidman. Want to emulate the look into your own beauty arsenal? Well, you’re in luck, as the best new products on the market for spring are aimed to give you just that. Kardashian mega-stylist Jen Atkin created the world’s first—wait for it—foam dry shampoo. Sure, the foam is as light to the touch as that mousse your mother used in the ‘80s, but the real kicker is the fresh blowout-style shine it imparts. More in the gloss world is R+Co’s Trophy Shine and Texture Spray, which also gives locks the life and luster of just-came-from-the-salon style. And when it comes to skin, there’s never been a better time to serve a fresh face than now, thanks to exfoliators like Dior Hydra Life Glow Better Fresh Jelly Mask and Drunk Elephant T.L.C. Sukari Babyfacial. The two are perfect for sensitive skin and offer the joys of instant gratification after just one use. Also a must-have? Shower Clear’s chrome shower head that is designed to prevent any signs of mold. For more of the best beauty buys to take you through the season, click through.
