Of the hundreds of products that were sent to us for reviewing, the ones below are most worthy of your attention (and the contents of your wallet).

Some launches are timely enough to address spring-induced seasonal concerns, like SPF for more hours in the sun (Eleven by Venus Williams Game Set Match SPF 50 Body Lotion, $38) and strand-smoothing serums for impending humidity (Dae 3-in-1 Styling Cream, $26).) Others are new essentials, timeless classics that deserve a spot in your beauty routine in any season, like Pat McGrath's highly-anticipated hydrating serum, Rose 001: The Essence ($86), and Exa's impressive High Fidelity Color Corrector ($27).
