So right about now I am channeling Coachella’s vibes and embracing my inner boho goddess. Honestly, when I am not dreaming of unicorns, pink castles, sprinkles and tiaras, I’m truly a calm, free spirited, whimsical beauty that enjoys all things, light, airy, and pretty. I love soft lip and cheek stains, skin care made in small batches, and playful hues that play up all of spring’s delights. Since spring is all about the lighter, simpler side of beauty. Here are my picks for spring including a yarrow facial toner for whimsical days romping in spring meadows!
1. RMS lip2cheek $36.00
Lip and cheek stains are soft and subtle. They offer just the right amount of color to adorn natural spring looks. The lip and cheek stains by RMS come and several different colors on our vibe lines at Caboodle this month is the RMS’s lip2 cheek in Demure a soft pink rose with a hint of mauve.
2. Axiology in Philosophy $28.00
Spring is all about natural beauty; keep coverage light and simple. Since most lip stains really play up a minimalist look, if you want a deeper yet subtle look, playing up your lip look is definitely the way to go. Caboodle loves many of the shades by Axiology but for spring we are super in love with Axiology’s lip color in Philosophy. Philosophy has pink and salmon undertones perfect for breezy days in the park.
3. Tata Harper Resurfacing Mask $58.00
While florals can be a potential nasal and skin irritant for some individuals this resurfacing mask by Tata Harper really makes the grade as both a spot treatment for the face and an all over mask. Simply apply a small amount to the skin and leave on for 20-30 minutes for the perfect spring glow.
4. DIY Yarrow Toner
With spring in full bloom you can create an astringent toner with yarrow to kill bacteria, control sebum, and reduce oil. The yarrow toner is especially good when splashed on the face after intense exercise.
Yarrow Skin Toner
2 cups boiling water
2 teaspoons dried yarrow
10 drops tea tree essential oil
5 drops eucalyptus essential oil
Add yarrow to boiling water, remove from heat and steep for 30 min. Strain and cool. Add essential oils. Store in a jar or squeeze bottle in the refrigerator for up to 1 month.
Usage: Apply to a cotton square as a toner after cleansing.

5. Fig & Honey Body Lotion by Mission Grove $10.00
So Mission Groves fig and honey body lotion is a delightful spring body lotion that boarders on sweet, green and earthy tones to really awaken your spring groove. We love it!
