Just when you didn’t think winter would end the days start to become longer, the temperatures start to rise and the flowers start to bloom – it’s finally springtime! It is time to shake up your beauty routine for spring by breaking out the pastels and preparing to get dull, dry winter skin ready for the warm weather months. We’ve tested out some of the newest all natural, eco-friendly beauty products and wanted to share with you some of our favorites to help you look and feel your best from head to toe this spring.
Honest Co. Organic Lip Balm
The Honest Company, started by Jessica Alba and Christopher Gavigan, is a healthy lifestyle brand with natural products that actually work and are safe for the whole family. We love their new Organic Lip Balm trio in Purely Simple, Lavender Mist and Sweet Orange Vanilla assortments. These lip balms are great for everyday use and are made with natural ingredients like organic jojoba, olive, sunflower and coconut oils that hydrate and protect, and shea butter and aloe leaf extract to moisturize and condition. Wear the lip balm under your favorite lipstick or wear it on its own! The assortment of three lip balms is $9.95 and available at www.honest.com.

DeVita’s new Moisture TINTS is an all-natural, paraben free and vegan option to one of the most popular trends in the beauty isle – the BB Cream. It’s a tinted moisturizer and SPF 15 all in one and the combination of enlightening pigments and sheer color helps to balance out skin tone to provide natural coverage. It’s one product that will speed up your beauty routine in the morning to help you get out the door faster! Available in light, medium and dark for $31.95 each at www.devitaskincare.com.
Priti NYC Sherbet Nail Polish Kit
I love the new Sherbet Nail Polish Kit from Priti NYC! These pastel colors are perfect for spring and include a yellow (“Mermaid Rose”), peach (“Remember Me Rose”), lavender (“Belle Courtisane”) and light blue (“Happy Wanderer”). These luxury nail polishes are fast drying and long lasting — everything you want from your nail polish while also being eco-friendly, non-toxic, vegan.

LUSH Rose Queen Bath Bomb
If you haven’t been to a LUSH store yet, you are missing out! The store is filled with natural, handmade natural bath and body products that smell delicious. Our favorite for springtime is their Rose Queen Bath Bomb. This bath bomb is all that’s needed for a truly relaxing soak in the tub that will help moisturize your tired winter. The Rose Queen Bath Bomb explodes with a rose fragrance once you drop it into your bath and is filled with petals. Rose absolute, golden needle lily petals, apple blossom and honey suckle are just a few of the ingredients. Pick up a bath bomb from www.LushUSA.com for $5.25.
Tarte Cheek Stain
Get a natural blush this spring with Tarte Cosmetic’s Cheek Stain, which comes in either a cream or gel based stain. Made with natural ingredients like acai berry extract, goji berry extra and acerola – to name a few – Tarte Cheek Stain is paraben free with no synthetic fragrances. We love the Tipsy color, which you can apply using your fingers, sponge or directly from the tube. Available for $30 at www.tarte.com.
