    1. A highly-rated air purifier to trap all of the dust, pollen, and pet dander that's swirling around in your home and give your nose a chance to breathe for once.,

    Promising review: "I have carpets in my house and horrible allergies! I love my cat but I’d wake up so stuffed up before I got this. Now i feel like I can breathe a lot better and I get to have my sweet kitty sleep in my room! Getting rid of my cat wasn’t an option so this was the best purchase I’ve ever made. I’m constantly disinfecting my carpets and vacuuming and doing all I can to try to prevent my allergies but with this, I’ve been able to get great sleep and I wake up able to breathe! As far as the sound, honestly I don’t hear it at night because I have a fan going as well but during the day it’s just a small hum(like a fan on low) and that’s on the highest setting. So there are no complaints at all here." —Shelby B

    Get it from Amazon for $40.79+ (available in two colors).

    2. A pair of waterproof high-tops if you absolutely despise the bulky look and feel of normal rain boots. They look just like normal sneakers but will still keep your feet dry during those dreaded April showers.

    Reviewers wearing pink and yellow waterproof high-top sneakers

    Promising review: "I bought these shoes for a trip to Alaska where I knew that it would be rainy and wet. They were perfect. My feet stayed dry and when they got dirty I was just able to wipe them clean ... I've even worn them to football games where sometimes people spill beverages and my shoes were able to stay dry and again I just had to wipe them clean. Plus they look cute." —Yvonne R.

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in sizes 5-11 and 23 colors/styles).

    3. An insect repellent with a special blend of all-natural ingredients like witch hazel and lavender to stop your arm from becoming an all-you-can-eat buffet for mosquitoes.

    Promising review: "My husband applies this just before working at the golf course in this soggy spring, and it’s keeping the bugs away. We are so pleased to find a natural solution!" —Jill

    Rooted Earth is a small Etsy shop based in Casco, Maine that specializes in small batch skin care made with herbs grown on the owners' farm.

    Get it from Rooted Earth on Etsy for $9.99+ (available in three sizes).

    4. The wildly popular Bug Bite Thing, which uses the simple power of suction to alleviate post-bite itching and swelling. It works on everything from mosquito bites to bee stings, so you'll probably want this in your pocket at all times.

    Promising review: "I cannot stress to you enough how much better this simple little tool has made my quality of life during summer in Ohio. It rains a lot. There are a lot of mosquitoes. Omg so many mosquitoes. I have horrific allergic reactions to mosquito bites. We're talking bumps swelling to the width of softballs within minutes of the bite. This tool doesn't make those bumps go away, but it stops the itch IMMEDIATELY.

    I was a huge skeptic; how could a little suction cure this agonizingly itchy allergic reaction? I'll be honest. I still really don't know how it does, but it provides instant relief that no pill, cream, or injection ever has ever achieved for me. If you live anywhere where insect bites are common, you need to own one of these!" —Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $9.95 (available in two colors).

    5. A set of blackout curtains with cute star-shaped cutouts to transform the pesky spring sun into a starry night sky. Here's to uninterrupted beauty sleep!


    Promising review: "I love these curtains. As an adult who has them in her bedroom, I can say the star cutouts are awesome. Aside from being fun, these curtains let in just the right amount of light. Obviously, they're not blackout curtains, which is what I want for my bedroom. It allows the room to gently brighten as the sun rises.

    When the sun is out at full strength, enough light gets through to bathe the room in a very soft and gentle glow of light. That means the entire room is in shadow, but not so dark you bump into things." —Mari

    Get a set of two panels from Amazon for $24.99+ (available in seven sizes and seven colors).

    6. A pack of shower steamers, which are basically like bath bombs for those of us without a tub. Throw it on your shower floor and let the 100% eucalyptus essential oil clear your sinuses and make you feel like you're at a serene spa away from spring weather.

    Bag of shower steamers by Relax Away Essentials

    Promising review: "These shower steamers are amazing! The scent is so strong and really helps clear sinuses. I will definitely be placing another order!" —Ashley

    Relax Away Essentials is a small Etsy shop based in St. Louis, Missouri.

    Get a bag of six from Relax Away Essentials on Etsy for $10.

    7. Or a popular pouch filled with eucalyptus leaves if you want an even more natural experience. You can tie it to the shower head or your tub's faucet and let the steam release all that eucalyptus goodness to relieve some of those allergy-induced headaches.

    Eucalyptus Blooms/Etsy

    Promising review: "This might have been the best smelling package I have received. The eucalyptus was so fragrant right out of the package. I tied it around my shower head and, wow! The smell was amazing! Highly recommend." —Ines J.

    Eucalyptus Blooms is a small Etsy shop based in Charlotte, North Carolina.

    Get a pack of three from Eucalyptus Blooms on Etsy for $15.99 (also available in a pack of five).

    8. A sinus rinse bottle to clear your nasal passages of any irritants that might be making your allergies even worse. Simply hold it up to your nasal passage and let the stream flow from one nostril to the other to flush out all the gunk.


    The bottle comes with 30 nasal wash salt packets so you can get to flushing right away!

    Promising review: "Love the design of this. Very practical and easy to use/clean. If you haven't used a Neti pot before, the first time is a lot like getting dunked in a swimming pool. You have to learn to relax your nasal passage and become accustomed to the water flowing from one nostril into your sinuses then out the other nostril. It is all gravity fed, so obviously lean your head heavily to reduce the amount that ends up flowing into your mouth.

    By your second attempt, this becomes easy. After a week of using this, I noticed my ear canals clearer even. The first use left my nose clean and clear. Seriously, if you are suffering with congestion/allergens, try this (or another neti pot) out. It is simple logic. Flush your entire nasal path, reduce allergens. Nothing fancy, just cleaning your pipes." —Matthew M.

    Get it from Amazon for $13.95.

    9. Or a nasal inhaler with peppermint, eucalyptus, and lavender essential oils to help clear congestion and relive any sinus headaches all that annoying pollen is causing.


    Promising review: "Whoa! This thing clears up your sinuses immediately with the very first whiff. Smell is strong, but pleasant. Perfect for someone muddling through allergies! I had tried other nasal sprays before, but never came across anything that clears up my sinuses this quickly!" —Adit J

    Get a pack of three from Amazon for $13.95.

    10. A genius windproof umbrella that not only folds in upside down for easier storage, but also has a helpful C-shaped handle you can slide your wrist through to keep both of your hands free.,

    Promising review: "I live in Ohio, where spring is just a constant barrage of cold rain and wind. This umbrella is incredibly helpful for dealing with these conditions and I am so happy that I decided to buy it. It opens and closes easily, it's lightweight, and the design on the inside makes me hate everything just a little bit less." —A. Schoonover

    Get it from Amazon for $21.99+ (available in 23 patterns).

    11. A pack of mosquito wipes that are so much easier to travel with than a can of bug spray. You can directly wipe these bad boys onto any exposed skin and watch as those mosquitos fly away in pure disgust.

    Model applying Cutter All Family wipes

    Promising review: "I’m that person who always gets eaten alive by mosquitoes. It’s been such a problem that I normally use heavy sprays like Deeps Woods OFF. I got really tired of how greasy and stinky these sprays were. So I tried these wipes and LOVE them. They have a pleasant scent and are not greasy at all. I went outside at 7:15 a.m. on a muggy overcast but warm morning to do yard work– prime conditions for skeeters – and am pleased to say I got ZERO bites!" —lthornton79

    Get a pack of 15 from Amazon for $4.18.

    12. This face and body sunscreen that is SO convenient to swipe on when you have to begrudgingly step outside and face the spring sun. It personally kept my ghostly pale skin completely burn-free on a pre-pandemic Disney World trip!

    Reviewer photo of Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Face and Body Stick

    My skin burns at the mere thought of the sun, so reapplying is essential when I am outdoors for long periods of time. Unfortunately I hate applying liquid sunscreen — it's greasy, a pain to rub in, and usually smells awful. I decided to try this during a 2019 trip to Disney World, and I was blown away by how much I fell in love with it. It's so simple to reapply (just swipe a few times and you're good to go), never felt oily, absorbed super quickly, and it smells much nicer than usual SPF products. I came home from my three day trip with absolutely zero burns thanks to this SPF stick!

    Get it from Amazon for $8.95.

    13. A facial sunscreen that's super powerful thanks to the SPF 100, but feels instantly dry to the touch so it won't make your skin feel greasy and heavy during a warm spring day.

    Model holding bottle of Neutrogena dry-touch sunscreen

    Promising review: "I always wear sunscreen (rain or shine) but I hate wearing it on my face bc it always feels kinda greasy and heavy. NOT THIS ONE. This one is actually very light and it doesn't leave my face feeling super greasy and sticky. Once it dries, it feels pretty light, which is perfect for my oily skin." —Ruch

    Get it from Amazon for $8.97+ (available in three SPF levels).

    14. A foot file for anyone who simply hates spring because their feet are never ready for sandal weather. This grater will grind away at calluses and have your heels and toes looking silky smooth in no time.

    Promising review: "OMG, these should be standard issue to every human. I’ve bought them all, the cheap foot files, the expensive ones, the Ped Egg and even a foot file from that direct sales nail wrap company. None of those remotely compare to this one. I thought I was reduced to course heels forever; no more! With just one use my heels are fabulous! The callouses this thing removed was absolutely disgusting, but i couldn’t be happier. You won’t be disappointed!!" —JMart

    Get it from Amazon for $8.95.

    15. An all-natural deodorant for those of us who start sweating at the mere mention of spring. These aluminum-free formulas will banish bacteria and keep you smelling as fresh as the spring daisies you hate.


    Promising review: "Listen here, I’ve been searching for a deodorant for a long time. I have overactive armpit sweat glands. I was on the hunt for deodorant that wasn’t toxic and actually worked. Almost every deodorant that I would use would work for maybe the first hour and would smell really great. But sometimes I wear this deodorant two days in a row without showering and I can’t smell any B.O. from myself at all!!! I’m a stay at home mom/ homeschool mom of five. So I’m very busy and sometimes I literally don’t have time to shower. I LOVE this deodorant!" —Alison P.

    Deep Well Botanicals is a small Etsy shop based in Overland Park, Kansas.

    Get it from Deep Well Botanicals on Etsy for $3.25+ (available in two sizes and 14 scents).

    16. A lotion designed specifically for wet skin so you can quickly moisturize before you even reach for a towel. It's seriously a game-changer for anyone who gets itchy skin due to allergies.


    I 👏LOVE 👏THIS 👏STUFF. No, I don't think you understand, I'm obsessed. So my skin is naturally pretty dry, and my allergies tend to make it even more itchy and irritated in the spring. Unfortunately, I hate body lotion. I know I need it, but I despise the greasy and sticky feeling most of them leave behind. I randomly stumbled upon this on Amazon and was immediately intrigued by the fact that you apply it to wet skin and lightly towel-dry afterwards.

    It takes a few uses to get over the strange sensation of applying lotion directly to wet skin, but once you do, it's a game-changer. Once you rub it on and then lightly pat dry, it feels like the lotion has immediately absorbed and leaves you with a soft but lightweight level of moisture that's perfect for the warmer months. It's honestly pure magic and has become a permanent staple in my post-shower routine.

    Get it from Amazon for $10.39 (available in two formulas and various multipacks).

    17. A lightweight rain jacket you can roll up into a portable little pouch so you can take it with you basically anywhere. Spring weather is always unpredictable — but you'll be prepared!,

    Promising review: "Took a week-long backpacking trip to Idaho & this jacket was awesome!!! Kept me dry , the fit is great & it’s really lightweight & comes in its own little condensed package for easy storage while hiking!" —Marlyn

    Get it from Amazon for $26.99+ (available in sizes S-2XL and 16 colors).

    18. A natural herbal salve to help you "ditch the itch" when those meddling mosquitoes go to town on your ankles. The mix of wildcrafted plantain, lavender, and chamomile will soothe your skin and make you forget those bites even exist.

    Promising review: "Bugs love me, and this stuff gives me the best relief. Sometimes I go hours and hours without remembering itchy bug bites." —Tiffany

    Rooted Earth is a small Etsy shop based in Casco, Maine

    Get it from RootedEarth on Etsy for $8.99+ (available in four sizes).

    19. A super quiet dehumidifier that'll capture all the excess moisture in the air that's making you feel all uncomfortable and sweaty.,

    Promising review: "Must have if you don’t like sweating all the time like me. I live in Houston, Texas. One of the most humid places on earth. At least that's what it feels like outside mostly all late spring and summer days. This dehumidifier is a lifesaver for me. Fans are great, but until you can collect the water in the air, it feels much hotter than it really is. This unit is small and portable like other units on the market, which is great to move from room to room. It has just two buttons and making it a very simple operation. One is to turn it on and off. Other is to run on the light. Light can be set to rotate between colors or a fixed color of your choice, which is great if you have color theme for a particular room you will be using in. I use mine in my garage since I have no air conditioning there. Allows me to work on my projects without getting sweaty." —Giril E

    Get it from Amazon for $44.96.

    20. A set of cooling sheets made of a breathable moisture-wicking bamboo fabric so you stay nice and cool even though the temperatures are starting to rise.

    Reviewer photo of navy sheets on bed

    Promising review: "I absolutely freaking LOVE these sheets. I really just bought these on a whim because I was so tired of waking up in a puddle of sweat every night. Plus, they were super affordable for king sized sheets. Lo and behold, THESE ARE MY FAVORITE SHEETS EVER!!!! I will be buying more in the future. The bamboo material is so soft and smooth, but they're even cooler than my high thread count Egyptian cotton sheets which makes a GIANT difference for me when I'm trying to sleep. We have a stupid hot memory foam mattress (something else we need to rectify), but these sheets make the best of the situation and really help me stay comfortable at night. You can't go wrong with the price, but even if these were expensive, I'd still buy a bunch more sets because the quality is outstanding!" —Luckyeights86

    Get a set from Amazon for $26.95+ (available in seven sizes and 42 colors).

    21. A cooling pillow made with supportive gel memory foam so you can stop tossing and turning all night while your body gets used to the temperature changes outside.


    Promising review: "Fantastic pillow. The perfect balance between support and softness. I usually dread new pillows as I always have to break them in for a few weeks to get a good night's sleep. This is the first pillow I ever tried new and got the best sleep in a long time. I didn't wake during the night to shift my pillow or to change sides. I normally sweat on my pillow and this pillow was completely dry. The gel in the foam really does work at cooling. Highly recommended." —Zainab N. Nawaz

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99+ (available in three sizes).

    22. Or a silk pillowcase that will stay cool all night and keep your hair looking smooth and flawless even when the humidity rises.

    Zimasilk silk pillowcase in the shade light plum

    Promising review: "I'm very happy with this silk pillow cover. I needed to get one because I have long hair and sleep with it in a loose bun on top of my head. I was noticing quite a bit of breakage of the hair on the back of my head at the nape of my neck. Since I started using a silk pillowcase the breakage has pretty much stopped. It's very comfortable and stays cool throughout the night." —jennifersculpts

    Get it from Amazon for $25.99+ (available in six sizes and 37 colors).

    23. A hair minimizing body cream to help reduce the amount of time in between shaving — because nobody has time for that right now.

    Promising review: "After just about three weeks I noticed that the hair on my legs had considerably slowed down growing. I normally shave my legs every day but now I can go a few days without shaving. Great smell and keeps your skin super soft too!! I love it so much I’m on my second container of it!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $7.45.

    24. A leave-in conditioning spray with coconut and argan oil that'll take your hair from matted, stringy, and tangled to smooth, wavy, and shiny. If your hair starts getting out of control around this time of the year, this will get it back in shape.

    Model showing before-and-after results of using Briogeo Farewell Frizz Rosarco Milk Leave In Conditioning Spray

    Promising review: "I got this in my Ipsy glam bag a few years ago and was mad when I ran out. I randomly saw this the other day and remembered how much I had loved it previously. This product is amazing!! My hair feels like pure silk! It’s sooo soft and smooth after using this. I’ve used so many other products, expensive ones, and nothing works as well as this! I highly recommend this!" —Melissa C

    Briogeo is a Black-owned, woman-owned business specializing in hair care.

    Get it from Amazon for $20.

    25. A stretchy "freezer dress" with moisture-wicking fabric, temperature-regulating technology, and UPF 30 sun protection, making it perfect for anyone who overheats the second they step outside.


    Promising review: "This dress is SO comfy! Looks great as a casual dress and just as great as any 'dressy' dress. I love the feel of the material. Even on a hot day, it is very comfortable and doesn't stick to you." —Zuumn

    Get it from Amazon for $14.19+ (available in sizes XS-2XL and 47 colors).

    26. A pair of leggings from Uniqlo with Airism fabric that's designed to feel ❄️ cool ❄️ to the touch, proving you don't have to give up leggings once winter is over. It also features protection from UV rays, so it's basically like wearable sunscreen for your legs.


    Promising review: "These leggings are super soft and do not collect dog hair! I have a husky and it’s hard to find soft leggings that won’t collect her hair! Will be buying more!" —Jenna

    Get it from Uniqlo for $19.90 (originally $29.90, available in sizes XXS-XXL and eight colors).

    27. A quiet little desk fan for those moments when the sun is beaming through your window and you just need to cool off. Or if you just need to get your Mariah Carey on and have a hair-blowing-in-the-wind moment.

    Reviewer photo of fan placed on desk

    Promising review: "This fan is a perfect size for my desk, yet delivers powerful cooling air. Love the color, and it's very quiet! As you can see from the pictures, it doesn't take up much room." —BeckieBea

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99.

    28. A pair of Skechers with a breathable mesh upper if you're looking for something easy to slip on, but you simply aren't ready to switch over to sandals.,

    Promising review: "These are the most fabulously comfortable shoes I've ever worn. I've been wearing tennis-style type shoes 90% of the time for decades now because of need for comfort. I can walk miles in these (four or five anyway) or stand for a longer time in them than anything else I've ever found. Plus, I think they look pretty good — especially for comfort shoes." —Carole C.

    Get it from Amazon for $29.95+ (available in sizes 5-13 and 22 colors).

    29. A set of patches you can slap right over any pimples that emerge if your skin freaks out every time the seasons change.

    Pack of NanoLuaShop Pimple Patches in various shapes and colors

    Promising review: "WOW, I honestly didn't think pimple patches could work so well. I've used other cutesy brand ones in the past and they've done an ok job but these are *chefs kiss.* For real, I tried them on both an old maskne zit and a freshly budding maskne zit and both were nearly flattened and completely gone when I took the patches off 4+ hours later." —Alana M.

    NanoLuaShop is a small Etsy shop based in Phoenix, Arizona.

    Get a pack of 12 from NanoLuaShop on Etsy for $7.19+ (originally $7.99, available in four colors).

    30. And a lightweight clarifying serum to help stop breakouts and clogged pores in their tracks, whether they're caused from stress or all that excess oil you're producing now that warm weather is finally here.
