The beauty of, well, beauty products is that they only demand a short-term commitment. No matter the product—be it a shampoo, serum, eye cream or foundation—eventually, it will run out. The plus side? It’s the perfect opportunity to try something new.

What’s that saying? There’s really no time like the present… or something like that. Surely, we can’t be the only ones who feel like a brand new person after spritzing on a new scent or applying a swipe of lipstick? 

Welcome to What’s New Now—our monthly round-up of the latest and greatest products to hit the shelves. Whether you’re searching for a few hints to drop, a gift for your best girlfriend or just want to try something that you haven’t before, you will find everything you need right here.
