Products I Love: My Top 5 Spring Beauty Essentials

As the humidity starts to rise in Nashville, I am reminded it's time to switch up my beauty products. I've been trying a few new products along with my tried and true favorites to see how they work as the temperatures heat up. So far so good.

To say I am obsessed with the Omorovicza Complexion Perfector BB Cream and Reviving Eye Cream is an understatement. All of the Omorovicza products are magic. Now that I'm using the BB cream and eye cream regularly, there is no way I can ever go back to anything else. The BB cream is light and the perfect shade of pale for me. The tiniest amount gives me the coverage I like. Even with the humidity and heat, this cream keeps my skin glowing, not greasy. The reviving eye cream is light and moisturizing, and it helps with puffy eyes and dark spots. It also has just the right amount of tack, so my concealer stays put over top of it. In Nashville, you can find Omorovicza exclusively at Private Edition.

To tame my curly hair and fight frizz, Bumble & Bumble is my go-to. I've used the Tonic Lotion for years and it's one of my favorite products. I don't wash my hair every day and tonic lotion helps refresh my curls. I just started using Bumble's Spray de Mode. I'm normally not a fan of aerosol hair spray, but a little of this goes a long way. It's not sticky and just a few sprays keep my curls intact. I get my Bumble products from Green Pea Salon or Private Edition.

I've been intrigued by dry oils and had heard great things about Caudalie's Divine Oil, so I decided to try it. This oil is pretty amazing. It's super moisturizing without being greasy. I am obsessed with the clean floral scent, and not only can you use it in place of body lotion, you can use it on your face and in your hair. Get. This. Oil. Now. In Nashville, I found my Divine Oil at Woo Skincare and Cosmetics.

I can never have enough lip balms. I have trouble with some balms because they dry my lips out instead of moisturizing them. When I find one I like, I stick with it. By Terry's Baume de Rose is perfectly creamy, extra moisturizing and it has a fresh rose scent. It's difficult to find good lip balms that also have SPF in them, so with SPF 15, this balm gets an all-around A-plus from me. In Nashville, you can find By Terry at Private Edition.

I've got more products to share with you, so stay tuned for more of my favorites.
