Spring Into Action Spring 2015 Beauty Must Haves




After digging out of yet another snowfall, we are officially so over WINTER 2015! And speaking of “officially,” Spring 2015 begins tomorrow, March 20th … of course you’d never know it with today’s weather! Chapped lips, watering eyes, skin that feels like a crocodile … enough already! We are completely ready to leave the winter behind, but the same cannot be said for our lips, nails, skin … you get the picture. So kicking into high-gear Team TME went on an expedition to find the go-to, must-have beauty products that will get you ready for the warmer weather ahead … and do so in style.

Hair Care: Rejuvenating our locks after the cold and brutal winter, and managing our hair, can be quite the endeavor. We found Davines’ MOMO collection and Redken’s Frizz to be the perfect products for getting our hair back into shape and for maintaining it throughout the often frizz producing weather of Spring and Summer.



  • Davines MOMO Shampoo ($25) and Conditioner ($29) are ideal for dry or dehydrated hair. Formulated with Cartucciaru Melon from Paceco, the collection leaves hair smelling delicious and offers up amazing hydration without weighing hair down. Major bonus – Davines is a cruelty free, organic and sustainable brand that belongs to 1% Forthe Planet!
  • To maintain those lovely locks, Redken Frizz Dismiss collection offers the first-ever Frizz Protection Factor (FPF) with 4 levels of smoothing and humidity protection for all hair types -- from fine to coarse. Frizz Dismiss offers heat and humidity protection with a sulfate-free, sodium chloride-free cleansing system. The Redken Frizz Dismiss collection ranges from $18-$25 and includes all of the haircare items that you will need to weather the weather! 


Skin Care: Look … we all know that your skin is nowhere near ready for those beautiful shoulder-to-pins revealing ensembles.



  • For an all over body rejuvenation, we pick Daily Concepts MY Zen Konjac Sponge ($18), which is 100% natural and comes in three selections -- Charcoal, Pure and Turmeric, and Daily Concepts is a vegan brand! Use your new Daily Concepts Sponge with Sebamed’s Spa Shower ($14.95) for a relaxing, skin-loving shower experience. Sebamed Spa Shower is soap and alkali-free, perfect for sensitive skin, and smells absolutely delicious.
  • Out of the shower, our pick is L’Occitane’s NEW Almond Velvet Youthful Body Serum ($52) and Almond Velvet Youthful Body Balm ($60). These ultra-concentrated formulas combine a powerful complex of natural almond ingredients infused with 2% Vitamin C, helping to get your winter skin ready for a sexy spring!
  • Of course you can’t ignore your face! For a relatively instant Spring prep, Green Apple Peel Nightly Brightening Pads ($45) by Juice Beauty smooth and tone while reducing the appearance of dark spots. Apple Peel Nightly Brightening Pads are eco-friendly and made of bamboo, which are saturated with antioxidant-rich organic fruit acids to brighten your skin. L’Occitane’s Divine Immortelle 28Day Renewal Program ($130) is a real “must-have” product to help rejuvenate winter skin and prepare for spring. This luxurious skincare treatment adapts to the skin’s natural renewal cycle to help regenerate tired, over-worked skin!

Now that you have your hair, body, and face all prepped you need the hot products for Spring 2015! Oh, and these will take you through Summer 2015 too!

Cosmetics: Out with old, in with the new and we’ve found a few new products that you should check out this season. Speaking of out with the old, now is a perfect time to discard that old makeup!



  • NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 30 ($43 - available in 11 shades and travel size) is an oil-free formula that provides buildable coverage with the sun protection you need.
  • Gabriel Cosmetics ZuZu Luxe La Sirena Palette ($45) is a fantasy palette of ocean blues and playful pinks creating an ethereal look perfect for this season. Also from Gabriel Cosmetics is The Beach Beauty Collection, which Team TME is calling a total must-have for Spring/Summer 2015! The Beach Beauty Palette ($27.50) is a collection of four ultra-wearable earth tone eye shadows featuring Pantone’s Color of the Year, Marsala! Multi Pot in Conch ($18.35 – Limited Edition) can be used on eyes, lips, and cheeks. Bonus: Gabriel Cosmetics is a cruelty-free brand!
  • Stila Cosmetics, another cruelty-free brand, has lunched two amazing brow products! Courtesy of “it” girl Cara Delevingne, “boy brows” are in. But, you gotta keep ‘em tame and pretty. Stila Stay All Day Brow Gel ($34) comes in five shades and a dual-ended brush that lets you contour and define your brows. If you’re more of a pencil person, the Stay All Day Brow Pencil ($21) has a micro-point for a precise application.
  • For a super pretty pout, we found a super interesting brand … Vintage by Jessica Liebeskind. Velvet Lip Crayon in Vintage Rose ($22 – includes sharpener) is a perfect hue for spring. This matte color can be worn alone or punched up with Jessica’s Sparkling Lipgloss ($21). Vintage Sparkling Lipgloss in Papaya gives lips a beautiful glittery glow in a super on-trend hue.

Nails: No look is complete without a little lacquer on your paws. Meow!



  • Team TME looked at a lot of lacquer for our Spring 2015 Must Haves. When we found Londontown, we stopped looking. After all, when you find a brand so deliciously good why bother looking anywhere else? The Londontown Nail Lakur Spring 2015 Collection ($16 – each), which includes eight cream colors and four matching glitters, offers sophisticated hues that are on-trend, luxurious, highly pigmented and 5-free!
