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!)
Bubble Day Dream Vitamin C + Niacinamide Serum
Almost two after its launch, Bubble is back with a new product. Introducing: the Day Dream Vitamin C + Niacinamide Serum. Described by the brand as a “tone and texture serum,” this product is light-weight and non-sticky serum and, as you might have guessed from its name, combines both Vitamin C and Niacinamide. The combination of these two ingredients is innovative in a serum and has been formulated with young skin in mind so it’s perfect for skin care newbies — like all Bubble products!
Tower 28 SOS Intensive Rescue Serum
Tower 28 enthusiast, this calls for a celebration. If you love the brand’s SOS Daily Rescue Spray (ICYMI: the brand dropped a Jumbo version last month), then you’ll love this product. Essentially, Tower 28 has launched a serum version of the spray featuring a concentrated dose of stable hypochlorous acid. The lightweight, water-based serum is pH-balancing and will aid fight both redness and irritation while helping heal your skin. Since it’s fragrance-free, it’s perfect for sensitive skin and those dealing with acne, rosacea, and eczema.
