The air is getting warmer, which can only mean two things. One, summer is almost here. Two, new beauty launches are headed our way. (Well, actually, three things because…climate change.)
But back to beauty. If April’s beauty launches already got you excited for warmer months, May’s will follow suit. It’s only been a few days but Bubble, Tower 28, ColourPop, and more brands have already unveiled some pretty exciting new products that are perfect for people with sensitive skin.
Below, check out some of the new beauty launches arriving in May 2022, and make sure to come back to this post every week as we update it with new drops. (Oh, and don’t forget to double up on the SPF now that the sun is finally shining!)
