Let me start this by acknowledging that I am no beauty blogger. I’ve been using the majority of my makeup brands and products since high school, but lately I’ve enjoyed experimenting with a few new things! I’ve come to really love a few products, and I’m also giving one of them away for free!
Smile Brilliant: I’ve been using these teeth whitening kit for a little over a year, and it’s really changed my smile. I usually ramp up my whitening during the springtime because I love the way white teeth look with a tan, and I’m definitely trying to make my smile look its best for our upcoming engagement photos! You can see my whitening before and after photos and a full review here.

Jade Roller: you’ve likely seen these pretty contraptions all over your Instagram feed this season. I partnered with TwentyPrime to review my own and I have to say I love it. I like to keep mine in the fridge and roll it over my face either over a face mask or while moisturizing. It feels amazing on your face at the end of the day and also helps with reducing puffiness. I have really bad allergies and this has definitely help deflate some of the puffiness that comes with them in the spring!
John Frieda Lightening Spray: fun fact, I’ve never actually dyed my hair before. I’ve been using this “adult version of Sun In” since my roomie in college turned me on it and I love the natural highlights it gives me! I just spray on damp hair prior to blow drying for instant lightening, or spritz in my hair before going to the pool.
IT Brow Pencil: alright, this isn’t seasonal, but this brow powder is so good I had to include it. The power is light and isn’t too intense, and I love the spoolie that’s on the other end — perfect for helping shape your brows. It only comes in one color, but you can make it work for any hair coloring!
Seche Dry Fast Top Coat: my nails take a beating in the spring and summer due to open toe shoes and going in the pool, but this top coat is amazing. At $10, it seems a little pricey, but it’s so worth it. It helps my nail polish last for up to 5 days! It also gives them a really nice shine.
