BABOR Spa Méditerranée Feet Smoothing Balm

When you’re between salon appointments or time to DIY, maintain your feet for warm weather exposure with this extract-rich formula from BABOR. The Spa Méditerranée Feet Smoothing Balm helps treat feet between pedicures and keeps them conditioned to prevent chapped or cracked skin. Echinacea extract helps to regenerate skin on the soles, and farnesol neutralizes any odors.

It can also be used on other areas of the body prone to dryness like hands, knees, and elbows. Keeping your feet conditioned shouldn’t feel like a chore, and this luxury product, which also serves as an antibacterial, will make you feel pampered while you use it.

Earth Therapeutics Pumice Stick and Cracked Heel Repair

Some of us have more work to do than others when our tippy toes emerge from hibernation. For those of you who regularly proclaim “woe is me!” upon seeing (not to mention feeling... ouch) dry, even cracked skin on feet, Earth Therapeutics is here for you. Treat yourself to an at-home salon pedicure treatment and treat your feet to the care they deserve with the Cracked Heel Repair.

Apply it daily to heels and dry patches to target problem skin with antiseptic tea tree oil and shea butter, a combination for a powerful, natural emollient to heal and subsequently protect skin. Buff away dead skin with the Pumice Stick and voila! You'll be sandal-ready in no time.

$3.49, Natural Pumice Stick $9.99, Cracked Heel Repair Both available at earththerapeutics.com

MANE TEEZE Hair Perfume

Admittedly, “hair perfume” may sound a little weird at first. But a couple spritzes of Mane Teeze by T&M Hair Perfume and we’re hooked. Containing a higher concentrate than average perfumes, these hair perfumes are formulated especially for the hair, providing noticeable scent for up to 12 hours and even helping to extend the life of a blow dry.

Whether you drop this in your gym bag to freshen up post-workout or turn to it as your trusty go-to to cover up scents in your hair from cooking or a night out on the town, a couple sprays (our favorite scent is Social Butterfly - a soft vanilla fragrance with a light aroma of tropical coconut) will leave you feeling immediately refreshed.

$35.00 at maneteeze.com and available at U.S. and Canada blo Blow Dry Bar locations

Maybelline New York Color Sensational Vivids Lipstick

Bright and vivid colors help define the trends of spring, and lipstick is no exception. New for spring 2013, Maybelline has added to its popular Color Sensational Lipcolor line with the new selection of vivid, high pigment lipsticks. We recommend applying a modest coat of lip balm prior to application for extra moisture.

Among the 10 super-saturated shades available from Hot Plum to Electric Orange, our personal favorite is Shocking Coral. And the best part: it took us through from breakfast, to lunch, and beyond! Long lasting color indeed.

$7.49 suggested retail price, available at Target, Ulta, and more

Laura Geller BB Cream SPF 21

Although BB creams have been available in the U.S. for some time now, the hype around them still continues. Introducing Laura Geller BB Cream- a super skin multitasker that is especially great as warm weather approaches and we try to give skin the room to breathe (bye bye, pore-clogging foundation). The formula is more liquid in consistency than some of the BB Creams we have tested, and the application is pretty effortless - a pea sized amount is enough to more-than-adequately cover problem areas and leave the skin looking natural and radiant (thanks to Ginkgo Biloba Leaf Extract, which stimulates blood flow).

This BB cream boasts 6 daily beauty needs including its function as a complexion brightener, moisturizer, and more. Available in four shades: Fair, Light, Medium, and Deep. Makeup artist Laura Geller deems it her favorite “girl on the go” product.

NEW for Spring 2013! $34.00 at Ulta store locations and Ulta.com

Maybelline Eye Studio Master Duo Glossy Liquid Liner

Maybelline’s hot-for-spring offerings continue with its new Eye Studio Master Duo Glossy Liquid Liner. For girls on the go, this product is a perfect combo of function (it dries quickly and stays put all day with no fuss) and fashion (the shades are daring and the liner is designed to create both thick and thin lines).

Color remains glossy and not dull as the day goes on, and our favorite shade of the moment is Glossy Teal, which really brightens eyes.

$7.99 suggested retail price, available at Ulta, , and more

ARROJO Curl Definer

Humidity and frizz are unwelcome visitors that make their arrival as the weather warms up. But have no fear! The newest addition to the ARROJO family of Curl products, the Curl Definer is specially formulated to banish frizz and elevate curls for naturally wavy and curly hair types. The gel formula features Kiwi Fruit Extract and Matricaria Flower Extract, which together leave curls feeling soft, bouncy, and structurally intact.

$19.00 (150 mL) at ARROJO
