It’s been a gorgeous couple of months in Target’s beauty aisles. Not only are there new collections from PIXI by PetraSonia Kashuk and S.W. Basics, we’ve also launched a handful of new Target-exclusive brands, including defy & INSPIREMarlowe.Mayfair Soap Foundry and You Are Amazing! Oh, and we helped Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams get ready for the SAG Awards red carpet with the new-to-Target premium skincare brand, Embryolisse.

With Easter just around the corner, we asked members of Target’s Beauty Concierge Team—highly trained beauty enthusiasts available to answer questions in-store—to share their spring beauty staples and other hidden gems so you can pamper and polish just in time for the holiday. The most popular product? PIXI by Petra’s Glow Tonic

Take a look below for the rest of their faves:

S.W. Basics Exfoliant, Marlowe. Body Souffle, and Pixi skintreats Glow Tonic

“My favorite product right now is the S.W. Basics Exfoliator. My skin feels so smooth after using it. Some other products I'm loving are the PIXI by Petra Glow Tonic, because I love how clean and radiant it makes my skin look, and Marlowe.’s Body Soufflé. Since it’s so dry here in Denver, the more moisture, the better!”

— Randi L., Westminster, Colo.

Mizon Snail Healing Cream

 “I LOVE Mizon, especially the All-in-One Snail Repair Cream – not only for its refreshing texture, but also for its many uses. It can be used for sunburn care, as a cooling cream and as a moisturizing sleeping mask. The brand has amazing quality products that won't break the bank.”

— Kate T., Irvine, Calif.

Defy & Inspire nail polish, Mayfair bath products, Pixi by Petra skintreats

“I love the defy & INSPIRE polishes because they are non-toxic, long wearing and kid-safe. I also love the new PIXI by Petra Skintreats because they are formulated with skin-loving ingredients such as ginseng, aloe vera and lavender. Plus, the entire line has glycolic acid, which exfoliates dry winter skin and brings out a summer glow. I also love the Mayfair line because it reminds me of higher-end luxury bath items and smells amazing. Plus, it's paraben- and phthalate-free and isn't tested on animals—all for a price that can’t be beat.”

— Geneva G., Hanover, N.J.

Sonia Kashuk Knockout Beauty Special Edition Brushes, Brush holder, and makeup tray

"I always think Sonia Kashuk does a great job at keeping the Target beauty guests excited for new products. I adore her new Knock Out Beauty products—especially the brush cupbrushes and cosmetic trays—and guests are also loving the empowerment theme. Personally, it makes me feel edgy and confident about myself and my beauty routine.”

— Kirin E., Los Angeles, Calif.

Baby Foot Exfoliating foot mask

“One of my favorites is the Baby Foot Exfoliant Foot Peel. The medical-grade peel will slough off the first two top layers of your feet for up to two weeks, depending on how dry your feet are. It’s a great thing to do before summer comes, and has been a hit with guests!”

— Carla V., Tustin, Calif.

Embroylisse Lait-Creme Concentre

“I love the defy & INSPIRE nail colors because they are so different than anything else I’ve seen! PIXI by Petra Skintreats also offer something completely different in skincare. I’m also obsessed with Embryolisse—the Lait Crème Concentre has been a staple in my makeup kit forever, and to be able to share this insider secret with our guests has been so fun!”

— Darby S., Cherry Hill, N.J.

Egyptian Magic Natural SKin Cream

Egyptian Magic is yet another amazing multipurpose product. It works as a facial moisturizer, eye cream, hair conditioner and defrizzer, lip balm, and is great for nails and cuticles. It is great for all skin types and helps balance the production of facial oils, creating a healthy, unclogged appearance.” 

— Marcella M., Eastvale, Calif.

Pixi by Petra Glow Mud Cleanser, Laneige Moisture Essence, Vichy Thermal Serum

“I’m all about polished skin. I use the PIXI by Petra Glow Mud Cleanser to cleanse and purify my skin, and the PIXI by Petra Glow Tonic is also a must to exfoliate and tone. Lastly, I like to use the Laneige Essence to add a refreshing splash of hydration before I use the Vichy Aqualia Thermal Power Serum.”

— Rebecca L., Newark, Del.
