Spring Has Sprung: Check Out These Products to Refresh & Relax

If you’re like me, I am super excited that spring is finally here! And with the warmer weather, I always like to refresh my various self-care routines with new products. Luckily, the Campus Trendsetters Spring Refresh Kit has allowed me to do just that! Want to see what new products you should purchase this season? Keep on reading!

Popsockets

We are starting off with one of my all-time favorite products; a Popsocket! When I saw these in the kit, I was so excited because I already have one on my phone now and have used them for years. Trust me, once you start using one, you simply can’t go back!

I love these for many reasons: they are great to prop up your phone for watching videos, taking crisper photos, and having a better grip on your phone with one hand.

Plus, I love how easy it is to swap the tops to change up your look! You simply push it down flat, press down, and spin it 90 degrees. Then you can pop it right off and put a new one on. It’s that easy!

With so many cute designs to choose from, like these Tie Dye Smiley Face and Heritage Rose White ones, you are bound to find something to match your phone case aesthetic. If you haven’t tried a Popsocket out for yourself yet, this is your sign to pick one up on your next Target run or on their website!

Steve Madden Reusable Face Mask

For the past year now, we have adapted to wearing masks everywhere we go. But if you are looking for some fresh prints to liven up your collection, look no further than these masks from Steve Madden! You probably know them for their iconic shoe and clothing lines, but they have stepped up to create some pretty cute masks too!

I love this one because I have been obsessed with tie-dye the past few months. It has adjustable ear bands and comes with filters to slip in for extra protection.

While the vaccines are promising, we must not let up on mask-wearing, so we might as well look cute while doing it! Give Steve Madden’s masks a try if you want to be safe and fashion-forward!

Hempz Sweet Pineapple & Honey Melon Moisturizing Herbal Hand Sanitizer

Like masks, we have also been using hand sanitizer way more than we did prior to the pandemic. I love to switch up my scents as the seasons change, which is why this Hempz Sweet Pineapple & Honey Melon Moisturizing Herbal Hand Sanitizer is amazing!

Not only does it kill 99.99% of germs with 63% ethyl alcohol while moisturizing with a blend of essential oils, but it also smells so tropical for the summer months ahead of us. Plus, it’s available in sizes from 2.25 to 8.5 ounces, so there’s a variety of options to suit your needs. Continue to stay germ-free this spring by using this hand sanitizer while you’re out and about!

Coke® with Coffee

Now if you’re like me, you might look at this next product and be a bit puzzled. I myself asked, “Wait is it Coke®? Or is it coffee?” The answer is BOTH! 

Coke® with Coffee sips like Coke®, but finishes like coffee, and comes in a wide variety of flavors; Dark Blend, Vanilla (both of which are also available in Zero Sugar), and Caramel.

This may come as a shock, but I am a college student that does not drink coffee (I know, I’m a rare breed). So I gave a can of the caramel to a coffee-loving friend of mine to do a taste test. They loved it and said it actually caught them by surprise by how tasty it was! Plus, they said they would get it again, which only further proves how good it is!

If you’re looking for a new beverage to uplift and reinvigorate mid-day, give it a try! You can find Coke® with Coffee at many grocery stores or also order it through Doordash!

BLK MKT Brand Fragrance Cards

I am a huge perfume and body spray person, so I was really excited to try out these BLK MKT Brand Fragrance Cards! BLK MKT Brand was founded by Saint Louis University undergraduate student Faith Nixon with the mission to create a sustainable and inclusive brand that represents marginalized individuals.

Using all-natural products sourced locally, they have created the first-ever line of gender-neutral fragrance balms, giving people a fragrance experience in a solid form rather than a liquid. 

Their fragrance cards however are totally different. They are similar to soap in the way that they lather up with a bit of water, giving you a clean and fresh way to apply the fragrance to your hands. But it can also be applied to your body, or be used as a shampoo or laundry detergent! The possibilities are endless! 

I love all three of the scents they included (REED, CLARKE, and INDIGO), all of which I could see myself wearing in the future. So if you have been wanting to bring more sustainable fragrance products into your life, check out BLK MKT Brand!

Bliss Makeup Melt Jelly Cleanser & Drench and Quench Cream-to-Water Hydrator

Ever since the beginning of quarantine, I have been working on my skincare routine, and Bliss is one of the many brands I have seen talked about over and over again! I have been wanting to try them out for a while now, and after using their Makeup Melt Jelly Cleanser and Drench and Quench Cream-to-Water Hydrator, I see what all the hype is about.

For starters, the cleanser doubles as both a cleanser and an eye makeup remover, which is amazing, and it is formulated with ingredients like rose water to soothe sensitive skin (which, as a sensitive skin girl, I appreciate). 

The hydrator is fabulous too! It’s super lightweight, making it great for warmer weather, while also transforming into water as you put it on. This surges the skin with all-day hydration, which is a must for a moisturizer! 

Now that I’ve tried both of these out, I want to explore more of what Bliss has to offer (perhaps some sunscreen for those sunny spring days?) But if like me, you have been seeing Bliss fawned over online, it’s no joke: their products are everything! 

Tangle Teezer: The Ultimate Detangler

I have long and thick hair, so detangling it after showering is always a pain. However, it’s been made so much easier with Tangle Teezer! I actually used their Original Hairbrush years ago and loved it, so I was thrilled to see that they have expanded to also offer The Ultimate Detangler! 

What is great about this is it detangles knots without overly pulling or hurting your scalp like traditional brushes. Plus, it can also be used in the shower to comb conditioning products into your hair (it’s been a total gamechanger for me!)

With over 50 million hairbrushes purchased worldwide, it’s no question why these brushes are so popular. If you struggle with knots and tangles like me, look no further and get one of these for yourself! You won’t regret it!

OGX Damage Remedy + Coconut Miracle Oil Hair Mask

Now, this product in combination with the one above is a dynamic duo! With my hairtype, it is super important I condition and nourish my ends from any damage. Lucky for me, the OGX Damage Remedy + Coconut Miracle Oil Hair Mask has been perfect for that!

It is blended with Coconut Oil, Vanilla Bean extract, and the essence of Tiare to send you to a tropical paradise. Additionally, it has been great to tame my frizz and has made my hair super shiny! Using the Tangle Teezer to evenly spread the mask has been great too, so I know every strand is getting the attention it needs. 

With days at the pool approaching soon, you should get a headstart on moisturizing your luscious locks with this mask to keep them strong and healthy! 

Batiste Travel Size Dry Shampoo

Last but not least, one of my absolute favorites! I’ve talked about Batiste in many of my other articles, so I’ll keep this brief, but if you don’t know already, they have the absolute best dry shampoo on the market! 

Their Travel Sized Shampoo will be an absolute essential this summer if you plan on traveling (fully vaccinated of course!)

It comes in four scents; original (clean & classic), blush (floral & flirty), bare (clean & light), and tropical (coconut & exotic). It’s also perfect to put in your purse or backpack for hair refreshes on the go! 

If you’re looking to refreshen your hair care routine, give Batiste a try! They have always been my go-to dry shampoo, so I know you’ll love them too!

I hope these products help give you the spring refresh you deserve! Go enjoy the warm weather and safely reconnect with nature!
