Spring is in the Air, Day Four: Spring Beauty Products

Today is day four of the Spring is in the Air challenge with Amber and Meghan. Today's question is:

   What are some recommendations for products you'll be using this spring as you're headed outdoors more?


I try not to use too many products at once. But sometimes, especially with all the rain in the Spring, I have to pile a million products onto my hair at once if there is going to be any chance of it staying even somewhat straight throughout the day. Here's what I use on a day to day basis, and it hasn't failed me yet:

Tigi S Factor Smoothing Lusterizer
   Up until my cousin introduced me to this product my hair was always a pain to deal with in the spring. All the humidity and daily rain showers made me look like a poodle that hadn't been taken to the groomer in months. It wan'st pretty. But, one day I was getting my hair done at my cousin's salon and she recommended this product. I just rub a blueberry sized blob through my hair before I blow dry and I'm good to go. I have walked through rain and snow for months frizz-free.

Samy Twisted Frizz Control Spray
      I found this product a few weeks ago while I was on spring break. It was part of a buy one get one free deal at Walgreens, so I figured I might as well try it out. And I'm glad I did, because it's amazing. I just use a few spritzes on my hair before I flat iron it, and it makes my hair softer and straighter than ever. It's really easy to go overboard with it though. Use more than four or five spritzes on dry hair and you run the risk of your hair looking oily.

     Garnier Nutritioniste Moisture Rescue Lightweight UV-Lotion
        I have super dry skin, and most moisturizers with sunscreen leave my skin looking greasy and sticky. But, this one is perfect. It absorbs instantly and keeps my skin soft, free of dry patches, and protected from the sun.

    Covergirl Outlast Lipstain and Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstain
   I've recently become obsessed with lipstains. For a long time I dreaded wearing lipstick, I blame it on the horrible lipstick colors that I had to wear during dance recitals/competitions when I was younger. But these lipstains are amazing! You get great color, but it feels like you aren't wearing anything on your lips, and the color stays on pretty much all day.
In the Maybelline colors, I have In The Buff, Wink of Pink, and Feelin’ Rosy.
In the Covergirl colors, I have Scarlett Pucker, Teasing Blush, and Flirty Nude.

Alba Botanicals Coconut Cream Lip Balm
This stuff is amazing. I found it at the grocery store one day while I was visiting my grandpa in Indiana, and I couldn't not buy it. I mean, it is coconut flavored, and that means I had to buy it. So, of course I ran out and then couldn't find it in Michigan. So, next time I was in Indiana I bought three tubes, just in case I couldn't find any for a while. This stuff is seriously amazing. My lips weren't chapped at all this winter, and I walked through some pretty intense wind, cold, and snow on a daily basis. I've seen other flavors at Target and Walgreens, but I've only been about to find the coconut flavor at Kroger's and online.

So, those are my recommendations for this Spring. I've used them pretty much year round this past year and I've never been disappointed by any of them. If you try any of them out, I'd love to know what you think of them!

  1. These recommendations are great, especially the first two frizz free products. I have super curly and frizzy hair, and I can't handle it. Sometimes I just throw my hands up in the air and throw it up in a bun. If I had those products I'd probably be more willing to let my hair stay down.
