10 Spring Beauty Products You Can’t Miss
Just like you change your wardrobe each season, your bathroom cabinet also deserves a good spring cleaning. That’s why there are countless products on the market geared specifically towards the months in between the dead of winter and the heat of summer. And we’re not just talking about lighter formulas infused with SPF — the hottest spring products on the market are also inspired by the season’s blooming florals and scents. Here are some fresh beauty products to help you soak up the spring season.
1. Spring Tulips Ring Bath Bomb
The best way to truly feel the essence of the spring season? Bathe in it! These pearl bath bombs have a delicately floral scent that’s quite luxurious. Each bomb is made with a skin-softening formula, so you get some moisturizing action in while you’re sitting back and relaxing. It’s 100% vegan and loaded with natural ingredients. It’s pretty much the easiest way to turn your bathtub into a spa.
2. No. 2 Plumping Spa Set
This collection of travel-sized masks, mists, and oils from Beautycounter is just what the skin doctor ordered. Each product contains the true essence of spring: the all-time favorite flower, peony. These blooms sprout early in the season and are known for their stunning appearance and classic floral scent. The hydrating ingredients in this set are combined to restore and firm moisture-depleted skin, as well as reduce the appearance of fine lines.

3. French Neroli Rose Bath Crystals
If the look of these bottled crystals doesn’t make you want to jump into a luxurious bubble-filled bath, the ingredient list might. The mineral-rich pink Himalayan salt base is blended with antioxidant-rich red wine powder (yes, the kind you sip!) along with soothing geranium rose essential oil and real rose petals.
Fun fact: Red wine’s not only great for pairing with your meals — it’s also great for your skin. It contains resveratrol, an antioxidant found in grape seeds, which helps fight signs of aging.
4. Moroccan Magic Organic Lip Balm
One lip color that will always be in style is the fusion of red and pink — aka rose. It’s light and bright with a perfect dose of sultry. Like winter weather, the summer climate is known to dry out your pout, especially when you’re catching those UV rays at the beach or even on the street. To moisturize your lips while adding a pop of color, try this lip balm from Moroccan Magic, which is infused with organic sunflower oil, rose essential oil, and vitamin E.
5. Formula N°7 Cucumber Spritz for Face & Body
While spring weather can be somewhat unpredictable, for those days when it does soar to the 70s and 80s, a refreshing mist is the perfect pick-me-up. This one from Baiser Beauty infused with organic cold-pressed cucumber seed oil, lemongrass oil, and witch hazel, which is a pore-shrinking and cleansing agent. Basically, it’s the perfect on-the-go skin refresher. To use, simply hold the product about five to six inches from your face and just spritz. Let the product sit on your skin for a minute or so before it soaks in lightly.
6. Tata Harper Purifying Mask
Spring is the perfect time to deep clean and rid your skin of dead skin cells causing a dull, lackluster look. A deep cleansing mask will not only clean your skin, but also create a smoother, clearer base for the rest of your makeup routine. This one, by the queen of green beauty, Tata Harper, is a one-stop shop for total cleansing. It contains the probiotic lactobacillus, which cleanses the skin without stripping it of natural oils, plus brown algae, which firms and lifts the skin.
7. Jane Iredale In Touch Cream Blush
This radiant cream blush is fresh on the shelves. It just launched in April 2017 and is already getting world-wide attention for its easy application and moisturizing texture. It comes in five glowing shades, too. Though it has a soft and dewy texture, it’s cream to powder, which means it finishes without any residue. The best part is you don’t even need a mirror to apply — just take the cap off and glide the blush to the hollow area under your cheekbones.
8. Estée Edit Pore Vanishing Stick
A brand that’s constantly reinventing the wheel of beauty and skin care, Estée Lauder came out with this simple little stick that contains a dual-action formula. Since spring weather can be a mix of rain, humidity, and hotter-than-expected days, this guy really comes in handy to shrink pores and blur any imperfections — whether you’re wearing a full face of makeup or none at all. Grease, oil, and grime will be gone in an instant.
9. Essie’s Wild Nudes Collection
As if we didn’t already have a wide enough color collection from nail giant, Essie, the company just unveiled a hot new line for the spring season. Their Wild Nudes Collection features sexy shades that promise to charm the pants off just about anyone. The best part is it’s not just shades of nude — the line features brilliant pastels in blue, green, purple, brown, and grey. And, we have to admit, their names are pretty creative, too, such as “clothing optional” and “truth or bare.”
10. Jergens Natural Glow Wet Skin Moisturizer
It’s hard to string enough sunny spring days together to actually catch a tan before summer arrives — then it’s suddenly shorts season. Instead of rolling up your long pants every chance you get to catch some sun, opt for a sun-free tanning moisturizer instead. Jergen’s new offering goes on while your skin is still damp after you shower. It’s non-sticky, doesn’t have that terrible odor many tanners do, doesn’t leave behind stringy lines, and won’t rub off on your clothes.
