Out with the old and in with the new is my current spring beauty MO. Our clocks have officially sprung forward, spring trends are forthcoming, and I'm beyond antsy to swap out my winter skincare regimen for the formulas that will give me the bright, dewy, clear skin of my dreams this season. As a beauty editor, I'm always checking the pulse on the most coveted, shoppable skincare finds, and my cart is currently brimming with a gleaming mixture of old and (hopefully) new favorites. 

I'm going to give you a sneak peek into the top 30 products I have my heart set on for spring, but that's not all! Our like-minded friends over at Violet Grey (the most divine beauty retailer of all time) have the same spring-cleaning, out-with-the-old-in-with-the-new mindset that we do right now, and today through March 15, it's offering 20% off selected brands. (Augustinus Bader! Nécessaire! Dr. Barbara Sturm!)

Simply enter the code SPRINGCLEANING at checkout, and your discount will be applied. Below, I'm sharing 30 beauty products on my must-hoard list for spring. If you only feel like splurging on one item, I've included the 20% off sale price, but if you plan to really take advantage of this mega shopping event and load your cart with all things (as I have), you won't see your 20% deal until checkout. And with that, go shop!

Erin has been writing a mix of beauty and wellness content for Who What Wear for over four years. Prior to that, she spent two and half years writing for Byrdie. She now calls Santa Monica home but grew up in Minnetonka, Minnesota, and studied writing, rhetoric, and communication at University of Wisconsin, La Crosse. She studied abroad in Galway, Ireland, and spent a summer in L.A. interning with the Byrdie and Who What Wear family. After graduating from UW, she spent one year in San Francisco, where she worked as a writer for Pottery Barn Kids and PBteen before moving down to L.A. to begin her career as a beauty editor. She considers her day-to-day beauty aesthetic very low-maintenance and relies on staples like clear brow serum (from Kimiko!), Lawless's Lip Plumping Mask in Cherry Vanilla, and an eyelash curler. For special occasions or days when she's taking more meetings or has an event, she'll wear anything and everything from Charlotte Tilbury (the foundations are game-changing), some shimmer on her lids (Stila and Róen do it best), and a few coats of the best mascara-type product on earth, Surratt's Noir Lash Tint.
