Surprise — March is here! Even though it may not seem like it, signs of spring are also on the horizon. But before we move full steam ahead and leave winter's dreary, freezing days behind, let's review the best
February 2019 beauty launches that happened this month. While January's new products were all about hitting refresh on your beauty routine, February seems to be focused on keeping those good skin care habits in check, while also ensuring that you are making time to pamper yourself.
Brands are encouraging you to make time for self care. There's a new luxurious CBD body oil from Lord Jones and a relaxing bath tonic from celebrity nail artist Mazz Hanna. Malibu's OSEA released a dry brush that the company claims will help you get rid of the toxins in your body, while Revlon launched a new crystal-inspired collection to mimic a rose quartz or citrine's luminous glow.
If you aren't a huge believer in the latest wellness trends, there's still plenty of newness to get excited about. Tatcha launched a dewy moisturizer that Kim Kardashian's makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic is a fan of and Glossier created a buzzy makeup remover that promises to easily wipe away the most stubborn of waterproof mascaras and eyeliners.
Here are Bustle's picks from everything that came out in February for what you need to add to your makeup, skin care, and hair routine right now.
Mario Dedivanovic, shimmer-free, dewy skin is in and that's the exact complexion Tatcha's new moisturizer aims to achieve. The Dewy Skin Cream hydrates and locks in your skin's moisture with its Japanese purple rice and botanical extract ingredients, while imparting an instant glow.
Lord Jones High CBD Formula Body Oil
This is not your ordinary body oil. Not only is it extremely hydrating, thanks to its organic avocado, jojoba, and safflower oils, but it is laced with CBD that could help help relieve tension in your body. It features a rollerball applicator so you can easily apply it onto your skin. Fun fact: You can use CBD oil on your feet, just like
Melissa McCarthy did on her toes when she hit the red carpet at the Oscars to combat pain from high heels. Genius.
MAZZ HANNA Effervescent Bath Tonic with Citrine Infusion
Emma Roberts is already a huge fan of this ultra relaxing bath tonic made by
celebrity nail stylist and certified crystal healer Mazz Hanna. Its made with lavender and frankincense essential oils and is enhanced with CBD and citrine, all of which Hanna claims will work together to melt away your stress and eliminate negative energy. Who doesn't need a little (a lot) of all that?

Sigma Beauty launched an entire brow collection filled with pomades, powders, pencils, and my personal favorite, brow gels.

L’Oréal Paris Unlimited Mascara
L'Oreal is calling its newest mascara game-changing, thanks to a tapered brush that bends at two different angles, allowing for ultra-precise application. The formula shouldn't be overlooked either — it's creamy, but won't clump, and can volumize, lengthen, and define your lashes.
Mary Kay® Illuminating Drops
Mary Kay released three pigment-packed Illuminating Drops in shades that are supposed to be reminiscent of "the desert glow" (aka that sun-kissed radiance you get from spending a day outdoors). Mix it into to your foundation for an overall glow or use it as a highlighter to illuminate your cheekbones or your cupid's bow.
La Prairie Platinum Rare Cellular Life Lotion
I know, I know — a $600 facial lotion is
a lot. But La Prairie promises that this new launch, which took the Swiss skin care brand two years to develop and perfect, will repair your skin and fight off signs of wrinkles, dullness, and loss of firmness in a way that no other product can. They have been innovating skin care since 1931, so you can definitely believe that they know what they're doing. If you can't afford the entire bottle, but want to give the product a try, the brand offers samples of its goods at La Prairie counters in department stores that carry them.
Earlier this month, Kosas revealed the first launch from its Kosasport collection — a lip balm made with hyaluronic acid and mint to seal in moisture, protect your lips against environmental damage, and stimulate your senses to be more focused and motivated. It's the perfect complement for your next run or spin class, plus it'll make your post-workout selfies that much cuter with your hydrated, rosy pout.
Orcé “Come Closer” Foundation
Orcé is a new brand from Taiwanese Yu-Chen Shih aimed at providing the perfect foundation for Asian complexions.

There are six different shades, ranging from the lightest shade for fair skin with neutral yellow undertones to the deepest shade for deep skin with neutral golden undertones.
Revlon Crystal Aura Lipstick
There's no denying that crystals are having a moment, which is likely what spurred Revlon to launch an entire Crystal Aura collection. All of the products are inspired by the luminosity and radiance of crystals, including the lipstick, which features a unique, crystal-like bullet and delivers a light-reflecting finish.
