Jackie’s Beauty Buys: 15 Products I’m Excited About for Spring

Between my dedication to the latest skincare and haircare innovations (I'm down to try anything new) and my overflowing makeup cabinet (seriously, my collection takes up half my bedroom), you could say that I'm a bit of a beauty junkie—and I'm ready to spill what I've learned. In my Beauty Buys column, I'm highlighting all the products on my radar, plus my tried-and-tested favorites that are truly worth the hype. In this edition, I've got 15 products I'm eyeing for spring to bring a glimmer of excitement into my quarantine routine.

Peace Out Dullness Brightening Peel Pads

Peace Out Skincare is known for trailblazing products that fly off the shelves, and the brand’s new brightening peel pads are no exception. Thanks to a powerful combo of AHAs, BHAs, and PHAs, my skin is looking smoother and more luminous after just a few uses.

Birchbox ARROW Color Enhancing Lip Balm

Last month, beauty subscription service Birchbox re-launched its in-house label, ARROW. The first item I can’t wait to try is the Color Enhancing Lip Balm, which reacts to the pH level of your skin to create a unique shade that complements your natural color.

Atolla Personalized Serum

I’ve been using Atolla for a few months now, and I’m convinced it’s a miracle-worker. The personalized serum is completely customized to your skin and preferences—you take an at-home skin test to gauge your levels of oil and moisture, and you can choose between different serum textures, too.

Raincry Regenerating Shampoo

In the spirit of 4/20, I had to include a CBD product in my spring roundup, and this one from Raincry is truly incredible. The shampoo (which has a coordinating conditioner and leave-in treatment) rejuvenates the scalp and protects against breakage, leading to stronger, healthier strands that look noticeably more vibrant.

Purlisse Matcha Green Tea Antioxidant Sheet Masks

As I’ve been stuck at home in quarantine, I’ve been plowing through my stash of sheet masks. Some of my favorites have been these matcha green tea ones from Asian skincare brand Purlisse. They’re packed with antioxidants and feel so moisturizing on my skin.

Supergoop! Glow Screen Sunscreen/Primer

The latest from Supergoop! acts as a three-in-one: it primes skin for makeup, prevents sun damage with SPF 40, and protects the skin from blue light. It has a light tint and glowy finish, so I actually like wearing it without anything on top for foundation-free days.

Kosas Revealer Concealer

It’s not too often that I’ll give a product “best-ever” status, but this is officially the best concealer I’ve ever used. It’s fuller-coverage than what I was using before, which makes it great for hiding breakouts, but it’s not too thick to use under the eyes, too. It’s also full of ingredients that help the skin: caffeine to brighten undereyes, arnica to calm blemishes, peptides to plump, and hyaluronic acid to hydrate.

Tower 28 SOS Save.Our.Skin Daily Rescue Facial Spray

This facial spray is unlike any other that I’ve come across. Its unique ingredient is hypochlorous acid, which fights bad bacteria to keep your skin fresh and healthy. Grab the mini to stash in your carry-on for a mid-flight refresh (once we can travel again).

E.l.f. Bite-Size Eyeshadows

I’m always experimenting with playful eyeshadow looks, and e.l.f. makes it so easy with their new bite-sized palettes. Priced cheaper than a cup of coffee, there’s no reason not to try out these cuties. Pro tip: pair ‘em with the brand’s Putty Eye Primer to make the look last.

Dr. Barbara Sturm Night Serum

Any newness from cult-favorite Dr. Barbara Sturm immediately jumps to the top of my to-try list. This serum, uniquely developed to work with the skin’s nightly regeneration phase, includes Cotton Thistle Extract to stimulate collagen and Senna Alata Extract to repair UV damage.

Fitish CBD Hair Plumping Serum

Last time I got a blowout, my hairstylist used a few spritzes of this CBD plumping serum on my roots, and I was thrilled with how it turned out—voluminous and soft. Tons of reviewers say it’s helped their hair grow longer and stronger as well.

Subi Beauty Perfect Pimple Patch

I’ve tried nearly every brand of pimple patch since the item has soared to popularity, and my new favorite is Subi. Almost every pimple patch product on the market uses hydrocolloid, which makes them all relatively similar, but I’ve found that Subi’s adhere and peel off better than all the others.

I’m always on the lookout for inventive hairstyling tools, and this one from Moroccanoil seems like a must-try. It combines a flat iron and a paddle brush so you can smooth your hair in one simple step.

Pseudo Labs PHreckles Kit

We may all be confined to our homes these days, but we can at least pretend we’re spending long hours under the sun by painting on some faux freckles. Psuedo Labs’ PHreckles come in three natural shades, blend in effortlessly with any complexion, and wash off easily with cleanser. I just tried them out myself and was surprised by how much I loved the look—I’ll definitely keep them on my top shelf!
