Our March shopping edit has all the best new beauty, fashion and lifestyle drops that we'll be snapping up this month.
March marks the time of year when we're finally coming out of our long winter hibernation and moving into brighter and *slightly* warmer times. This is the perfect time to do some spring cleaning and treat yourself to some fresh new products; whether that be new pieces for your spring capsule wardrobe based on the latest fashion trends, new beauty products for your bathroom cabinet or homeware inspired by the latest interior design trends.
These are our expert editor's favourite pieces and new launches for the start of spring...
What to buy in March: Our top picks
Why you can trust Woman & Home
1. 1L Faith In Nature Haircare
Size isn't everything... except it sort of is everything when it comes to sustainable beauty. Consuming less beats recycling more, plastic-wise. And buying jumbo-sized versions of your beauty staples is an easy way to give Mother Earth the nod and say, hey, I see you girl.
Faith in Nature is well ahead of the game with their vast offering of recyclable, refillable, and – with these new 1L shampoos and conditioners – supersize buys that'll still fit in your shower. Our favorite is zingy Grapefruit & Orange, but everything smells great and is excellent value too.
2. Oskia London Violet Water Clearing Cleanser
Spring cleaning time! With cleansers, there's a sweet spot between the ones that are a step up from a bar of soap and ones that are packed with so many expensive, high-tech ingredients it feels ridiculous to wash them down the plughole.
This happily resides in said best cleanser netherzone. It contains cleverly-judged amounts of pore-clarifying stuff like salicylic acid, rebalancing prebiotics and soothing prickly pear. It's effective but not harsh and has a generous lather that makes the minute it's on your skin feel like a treat.
3. Jo Malone London Star Magnolia Hair Mist
RRP: £40 for 30ml
You might think luxury hair perfume sounds pretty extra and to be honest, it's hard to disagree. Or at least it would be if the idea was buying a dedicated scent for your 'do plus another one of the best Jo Malone fragrances to spriz over the rest of you.
But what if we said this is more of an either-or sitation? Suddenly, with it's democratic price point, subtle floral fragrance and handbag-friendly size, this limited-edition starts to feel low-key, chic and, dare we say it – sensible? Trust us, there's a way to justify every purchase if you look hard enough.
4. Super Healthy Hair™ Seven Oil Hair Elixir
Over 160 happy customers have rated this hair oil 4.8 stars out of 5, with people praising the product for leaving hair glossy and shiny, as well as smelling great.
Formulated to help give you healthier, this oil is packed with Macadamia, Jojoba, Peach Kernel, Rosehip, Wheat Germ, Olive and Rice Oils.
5. Neal’s Yard Remedies Hyaluronic Acid Hydrating Booster
This March, Neal’s Yard Remedies have launched a brand new trio of multipurpose, high performing Skincare Boosters: Vitamin C Brightening Booster, Hyaluronic Acid Hydrating Booster and Organic Rosehip Oil.
All three Skincare Boosters feature all-natural actives in high concentrate to deliver results, even for the most sensitive skin and target three different skin concerns. Our favourite is the Hyaluronic Acid Hydrating Booster which has been formulated to target dehydrated skin as well as fine lines and wrinkles to leave skin smooth, plump and dewy.
6. WoW Brow
Finding the perfect brow gel can be a tricky task, especially if you're after something that will both hold and tint. However, Brows by Sarah has managed to nail it. Wow Brow boasts the perfect-sized brush to catch every hair without distributing too much product, whilst the subtle tint adds color without looking unnatural or blocky.
With ideal color matches for those with both fair and dark hair, it saves precious time in the morning that was previously spent filling in sparse areas with a pencil. The best part about Wow Brow is that the formula contains keratin to promote brow growth and strengthen the hair, so you're getting a treatment within your makeup routine that really does work.
7. Depuffing Undereye Gels
We love our Korean skincare products here at woman&home and this handy pot full of 20 pairs of hydrogel patches is the perfect travel companion for any long journey or late night. Featuring an 8-Hyaluronic Acid blend of dark-circle fighting Peptides, these under-eye gels are formulated to hydrate and brighten the skin under your eyes for a wide awake and fresh look.
8. Mattescreen by Supergoop!
Supergoop!’s range of unique SPF options can be worn by everyone, every single day and their latest UK launch, Mattescreen, is a pore-perfecting mineral SPF formula that is perfect for those who prefer the 'no make up' make up looks with added SPF benefits. Mattescreen glides onto the skin with a velvety, mouse-like finish and controls shine, so it’s a great option for those with oily skin.
9. Renewed Density Anti-Hair-Loss Ampoules
Loaded with Redensyl™ complex (3%) to help reduce hair loss, along with Vitamin PP (for scalp health), Larch Tree extract, Zinc and Arginine, Beauty Pie customers having be raving about the results they've seen from using these ampoules. The latest review reads: "I’m almost 55 and for many years my hair has been slowly thinning at my temples. I have used this, and my hairline is filling in. My hairdresser has even noticed all the new baby hairs growing in. It’s a great price point for such an effective product." Sign us up.
10. Dr Dennis Gross LED mask
In her Dr Dennis Gross LED mask review, one woman&home's beauty editors describes this product as one of the best red light therapy devices you can buy to use at home and one of her "all-time beauty recommendations."
"I began treatment feeling cynical (and a little bit silly) but now I'm hooked, and can't imagine my routine without it. It's undoubtedly expensive, but if you can afford to invest, the difference it will make to your skin is truly impressive." Read Rhiannon's full Dr Dennis Gross DRx SpectraLite FaceWare Pro review here.
11. Herbae par L’OCCITANE Spartium Eau de Toilette
Nothing says spring like a new floral fragrance, and this green and fresh scent has top notes of Rhubarb Leaf Accord and Grapefruit Essence and base notes including Ylang Ylang Essence and Blond Woods. A fantastic addition to your wardrobe of perfumes and the perfect springtime scent to welcome in the new season.
1. Mini Nugget Pearl Beaded Bracelet
When one of the best jewellery brands launches a new line, you know it's going straight into our baskets. Monica Vinader is tapping into one of our favourite jewellery trends with their new collection with Mother of Pearl.
This eye-catching bracelet features natural cultured freshwater pearls with a rainbow lustre that are all unique in size and shape complemented by sections cast in recycled gold vermeil—beautiful.
2. High-waist trousers with a straight-leg design
The new tailored silhouettes in the suits hitting the high-street this season are all about feeling relaxed whilst dressing up and refining your look for an occasion - whether that be an important work event or a big social occasion. We love the updated tailoring and fit on these straight leg trousers and the fact that you can buy the matching blazer to complete the look if that's your style.
3. Daisy Pleated Midi Dress
Wedding season is fast approaching and a summer full of formal events is much more enjoyable if you have your outfits planned in advance.
Knowing what to wear to a wedding can cause a wardrobe dilemma, but this summery midi dress checks all the right boxes. A great length, with a flattering cut and fit, we think you'll find yourself re-wearing this one time and again and with 15% off at the moment, what's not to love?
4. Laurie Shirt
Keep your capsule wardrobe simple and relaxed with a classic cotton poplin shirt. This new-in shirt at All Saints features traditional detail contrasted by subtle back pleats and a dipped back hem for modern styling. Team with your best pair of jeans for the ultimate smart-casual style statement.
5. Swimsuit with padded cups
Triumph have launched a brand new capsule collection with independent lifestyle brand Wildehouse, creating a collection of swimwear and beachwear that is geuinely flattering for all body types. Designed to be versatile, the collection features contemporary prints in bold colours as well as stylish monochromatic offerings to suit everyone's summer capsule wardrobe, whatever your style.
6. Sosander Denim Jacket
A denim jacket is a must for the spring months, so this Sosander version is ideal for replacing an old one or making sure you've got one in your wardrobe before the best denim jackets sell out.
The classic cut means that this will go with all of your best spring dresses and midi skirts—and with pockets it puts practicality at the forefront of its design too. You can view the full Sosander range at M&S here.
7. Cashmere roll neck jumper
With Spring finally here, we have all exhausted the bulky outerwear and heavy winter jumpers that have dominated our wardrobes for months. The new season is a chance to reinvent your dress code with lightweight, modern and classic knits.
The warm oatmeal colour of this chasmere piece makes a change from the usual white, black and grey styles and is an on-trend colour seen on the likes of the Princess of Wales. All while keeping you cosy and warm—perfection.
8. Pure Cotton Broderie Belted Midi Shirt Dress
Broderie is back so expect to see this easy-to-wear spring/summer style everywhere in the season ahead.
We love this soft white style from M&S with a flattering waist belt and spring-ready midi length. It also comes in a pastel blue shade if you want to veer away from white.
9. Blush Pink Linen Pyjama Trouser Set
We love these blush pink linen pyjamas from Piglet in Bed and while the price tag is a little difficult to justify when buying everyday nightwear for yourself, this set does make for a great 'treat yourself' moment or the perfect present.
We picked up a pair for a friend's 40th birthday gift this month and we love that you can add monogramming to the set for an extra personalised present.
10. Denim Midi Shirt Dress
Denim dresses never seem to go out of style, but short super fitted pieces aren't always what you want—especially if you're looking for dresses you can wear every day.
This piece from Sosander's collection at M&S uses relaxed denim for a more comfortable feel, while the fit and flare shape creates a flattering silhouette. One of the best midi dresses for those who want to tap into the ongoing denim trend and find a great transitional piece to add to their wardrobe this spring.
11. The Somerset Maxi Dress
The Somerset Maxi Dress was a bestselling piece from Anthropologie's summer collection last year, so much so that the brand have brought it back for 2023 with even more colourways and patterns available.
We already have this in two different designs, but we might have to add another to our collection...
12. Karlie Button Through Straight Leg Jeans
Bring some brightness to this springtime with this new style from Phase Eight. The best jeans are those you will wear time and time again, and we love this soft cropped style that will look great on a sunny spring day.
The tapered style is flattering on the legs and the mid-rise waist would make for a comfortable fit. Pair these with your best sandals and a light jacket as soon as the sun makes an appearance.
13. Plisse Pleat Blouse
Boden are currently offering up to 50% off with some irresistible offers on brilliant basics and spring staples.
We love this floral blouse with pleat detailing and a flattering neckline. Pair with your favourite pair of jeans or maxi skirt for a transitional look you can wear right through until the summer.
14. Pleated Midi Stretch Skirt
A spring investment that will give you endless outfit combinations, this stretchy midi skirt can be dressed up with heels or dressed down with a pair of your best white trainers.
Available in four different colours - black, navy, khaki and red - there's a shade to suit everyone's style.
1. Coronation Afternoon Tea at Fortnum & Mason

In celebration of the coronation of His Majesty The King, Charles III, Fortnum & Mason are launching a Coronation Afternoon Tea in early April.
Expect inventive takes on quintessential British flavours and a menu inspired by the King’s favourite ingredients and passion for the environment.
The Coronation Afternoon Tea will be served seven days a week in the timeless Diamond Jubilee Tea Salon - already one of our picks for the best afternoon teas in London.
2. Sonic+ Toothbrush in Pearl Violet
Designed, approved, voted and recommended by dentists, the Ordo's best selling sonic toothbrush is here to revolutionise your oral care routine for an effective and easy brushing experience. One of the most affordable (and the prettiest) contenders for a spot in our best electric toothbrushes guide this year.
