This season’s must-haves are just that: stuff that hasn’t left my bag since spring started. With the weather playing games on us here in New York, there have been some hybrid products I’ve kept handy in my spring bag as well. If your skin has been confused due to weather fluctuations or simply stress, I’ve got you covered. Check my past season’s posts here and here.
Hydropeptide Nimni Day Cream: There’s nothing more important than adding in products that have environmental protectors in them. That means sunscreen and other ingredients designed to mask your skin from pollutants, elements, etc. This daily face cream has been in my lineup since winter, and I can see a huge difference in the way my skin is responding to spring weather now.
Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Sleeping Mask: This stuff WORKS. I heard about it from Lauryn at The Skinny Confidential, and now I see why it’s quickly become a cult fave. I’ve been using it for 2 weeks, and my skin looks like that of an angel: glowy, even, and ready for summer.
Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask: You know I’m a sucker for a good sleeping mask. My lips are been so dry this season! I went in for a mini facial at Sephora to try some new products, and this was by far my favorite. My lips feel back to life, and ready for some spring and summer lip stains!
Glossier Exfoliating Perfector: This shit is GOLD. It’s only $24, and it honestly does the same amount of work as my super expensive Obagi skin lightener. Enough said. Take 20% off your purchase through this link too for newbies!
My Spring Bag
The Transience Swing Bag: I’ve admired these bags for a while, and when I moved to New York, I met the lovely lady behind them, who’s even sweeter! Sarah makes gorgeous yet functional designs that carry me from a long day a work to a night out with friends, never feeling like I’m in work attire. This bag is resilient enough to hold my two laptops, workout gear, and lunch. This bag is a must year round! You can even get a discount via Carbon38 with my code MGRAGG50.
Spigen Liquid Crystal Phone Case: Another Amazon Prime goodie! This case is ahh-mazing for those of you with an iPhone X. You can keep the beauty of the device showing, and it doesn’t add bulk. I bought 3 of these, as they’re under $10!
