The 5 spring beauty products I'm obsessed with

Ok guys, spring is coming. I can feel it in the air. I actually wore bare legs this week for the first time in months, the sun is still out when I leave work, and the night jasmine is blooming. After what has felt like a very long, cold, wet winter, I am really happy about this. So just as I switch to lighter clothes when the weather warms up, I also change up my beauty routine in favor of more citrusy scents and lightweight formulas. Here are the five products I'm obsessed with right now.

I got this Ouai leave-in conditioner in my FabFitFun Box (use code CHERYL10 for $10 off!) and it smells so good, I'd use it even if it didn't work so well. But it does—it makes my hair shiny and frizz-free, and protects it from heat damage. Note to Ouai: please make this scent into an actual perfume, because I will gladly buy it! 

Late last year, my two-step deodorant process stopped working, and on a whim, I picked up Schmidt's natural deodorant at Target. It has literally changed my life, and at $5, it's way cheaper than the fancy stuff I was using. I actually prefer the rose and vanilla scent, but this one works just as well. 

I am a big scent junkie, and used to wear Byredo Gypsy Water however I read that Victoria Beckham wears Bal d'Afrique, so of course I had to try it—and I love it even more. This vetiver-based scent is supposed to smell like Paris in the 1920s, but to me, it just smells like springtime (and maybe a little like my much-loved, now-discontinued old favorite perfume, Angel Innocent). 

Lip gloss and I don't usually get along—my hair gets stuck in it, and it never lasts as long as I want it to. But for some reason, I bought this Fenty Beauty Gloss Bomb in Fenty Glow and as one of the many hilarious reviews on Sephora says, "all other lip glosses go home." (Seriously, read the reviews—they're amazing.) The color is like my lips, but better, and the shine is just right. 

I had heard that Lavido is the brand that actually gives Gwyneth Paltrow her glowing skin, so I was delighted to find their Aromatic Body Lotion also in my FabFitFun Box. The scent reminds me a lot of Herm├Ęs Un Jardin Sur le Nil but the texture is a bit richer and it doesn't irritate my eczema. I bet it smells even more amazing layered with the matching body wash—that's next on my list to try.

You are making me want to try all of these products! I didn't get the Lavido in my FabFitFun box, but probably because I picked something else. I did get that leave in conditioner and it is a dream and I do love how it smells!
