Spring is an exciting time of year. It is the transition from the chilly winter months, to the ever-so-appreciated Summer days we all know, love, and look forward to. Below I’ve outlined a few of my favorite springtime products. I hope you love them as much as I do!
Mario Badescu Facial Spray with Aloe, Herbs, and Rosewater: Spritz this facial spray on after washing your face or applying your makeup for a refreshing and moisturizing cover. The smell of this is amazing—smells exactly like rose petals! Spray throughout the day to keep your skin hydrated during the dry allergy season! For only $7 a bottle at Urban Outfitters, you really can’t go wrong.
Coconut Water Mist Leave-In Treatment: Love this leave-in spray! Smells like fresh coconuts, and makes brushing through your tangled hair a breeze. I think I got this from Target, for less than $15. Perfect springtime hair essential.
Argan and Vitamin E Facial Oil: Apply one to two drops to your beauty blender before applying foundation. It helps to eliminate any facial scarring and also moisturize your skin. It’s a great anti-aging secret as well. These can sell for upwards of $50…but I got mine for literally $5 at TJ Maxx. You can also order online.
Too Faced Sweet Peach Palette: Normally I only use about 30-40% of any given palette…but I seriously love every color in this one. These tones are perfect for the spring & summer: golds, peaches, browns, greens, and purples. Easily go for a natural daytime look, or spice it up for an evening smoky eye. What makes this product even better? The shadows SMELL like peaches! Hands down one of my best purchases this year–$50 from Sephora.
Origins Out of Trouble 10 Minute Mask: If you know me at all, then you know that I’m a huge fan of origins skin products. After trying out quite a number of their skincare items, I always come back to this particular mask. Why, you ask? This mask dries nicely on my skin, and washes off leaving a soft clean feel. It seems to be medicated, so is perfect for drying out breakouts as they begin appear. I also really like Origins active charcoal mask, but this one is a serious winner. $26 from Sephora, Nordstrom, Macys, or any major department store. Smaller versions are also available for less $$$.
Hair, Skin, and Nail Gummies: You’ve probably heard of these, as they’ve been getting quite popular. These things are no joke. I can honestly tell that my hair grows faster, and my nails are getting stronger. After getting a number of gel manicures in a row, my nails were becoming thin and sensitive. I stopped getting the manicures, but still needed strengthening. These vitamins did the trick in just a few weeks. I definitely recommend these gummy vitamins. Purchase them from Target, CVS, Amazon, etc.
Spring/Summer Handbag: Now that it’s the warm season, it’s time to store your winter bags and transfer to a spring/summer one. I chose this one because the beige/white color combo will go with all other colors, making it the perfect everyday bag. The medium size is perfect for all of the necessities: wallet, sunglasses, lip glosses, on-the-go makeup products, hand lotion, etc. This Kate Spade bag retails for $360, but I got it from the outlets for $125. Not a bad price for a good quality, everyday bag!
