Goodbye, winter and hello, spring (which also means an enthusiastic hello to glowing skin, popping nude lip glosses, colorful manicures, and much more). Whether you're looking for a new body butter that'll give you ultra-smooth moisturized skin or a vegan-friendly nail lacquer for your next mani, OMN has you covered with our favorite, spring beauty products.
LaPierre Cosmetics - Nail Lacquer
There's no such thing as a spring slay if your mani and pedi aren't on point. With
LaPierre Cosmetics' line of vibrantly-hued nail lacquers, you'll have the added comfort
of knowing that their vegan lacquers are free of the five harmful chemicals commonly found in most polishes. Among those chemicals are formaldehyde resin, ethyl tosylamide, and dibutyl phthalate (DBP).
LaPierre's latest line of lacquers, the Greekos collection, features an assortment of enticing colors. There's the vixen-ready "Psychopomp's Pumps," the spring-friendly "Mnemosyme," and more.
The Wellness Apothecary - Calming Blend Bath Salts
There's no better way to unwind from a hard day then with a long, warm bath. For an even more relaxing bath experience, add a hearty scoop of The Wellness Apothecary's Calming Blend Bath Salts to your bath. In addition to various salts, the blend is also comprised of oats and coconut milk powder for maximum de-stressing power.
Purely Bias - Kokum Bliss
In the quest for buttery smooth skin, you've likely plowed your way through jars of shea
butter and bottles of oils, but there's a good chance you've never heard of kokum butter. Kokum butter is a vegetable butter that derives from the Garcinia tree. And one Atlanta-based beauty brand is using this lesser known butter to make sumptuous body butters that are perfect for moisturized, glowing skin.
Made using kokum butter, Purely Bias' Kokum Bliss Healthy Hair + Body Butter is a non-greasy butter that still boasts the ability "to soften, hydrate, and restore skin's elasticity." Kokum Bliss is available in a variety of indulgent scents, including My Mango, Honeysuckle Dew, and Buttercreamy.
Duchess Cosmetics - "Girlboss" Lip Gloss
Soft pink and nude hues are always a good choice once the weather starts to warm up. For a lip gloss that combines the two shades, opt for Duchess Cosmetics' "Girlboss" lip gloss. "Girlboss" is described as a "high definition gloss that glides on sheer while adding a hint of vibrant color to your lips." In addition to being worn alone, it can be layered over your favorite lipstick for added pop.
Folie Apothecary - Palo Santo + Peru Balsam All Purpose Mist
There aren't many beauty products that can be utilized in as many ways as Folie Apothecary's Palo Santo + Peru Balsam All Purpose Mist can. This warmly-scented mist can be sprayed onto the face to minimize skin pores and can even be sprayed onto linen to give it a quick refresh. Here at OMN, we prefer to use it as a mid-day refresher when your skin needs a quick pick-me-up on those dry, spring days.
SunKiss Organics - Mocha Coffee Scrub
It's no secret that exfoliation is key when it comes to smooth skin. For a heavy dose of both exfoliation and hydration, there's the Mocha Coffee Scrub from SunKiss Organics. The scrub's combination of organic coffee, organic coconut oil, and other all-natural goodies are ideal for glowing skin. And as an added bonus. the entire line of products from the Harlem-based SunKiss Organics are eco-friendly and cruelty free.
Violet Botanical Skincare - Body Oil
Body oil is a great choice for those wanting both moisture and fantastic sheen, this spring. Violet Botanical Skincare offers not one, but two different scents with their line of body oils: Queen Of Flowers and Egyptian. Each body oil is non-greasy, fast-absorbing, and will leave you with glowing skin.
