    26 Things For Anyone Welcoming Warmer Weather With Open Arms

    If you're ready to say goodbye to frosty winds and shivers, this post is for you.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI โ€” prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. An affordable and effective Etude House sunscreen with SPF 50 and a light airy finish that'll protect your skin without making it feel heavy or greasy (the fault of many sunscreens ๐Ÿ˜”). Because warmer weather means more sun so I hope you'll be using sunscreen lots!

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This is the best face sunscreen I have ever tried. I have oily, acne-prone skin and I hate wearing sunscreen because it would always break me out. I decided to give this one a try and let me tell you it is a godsend. It has a nice watery, milky texture, matte finish, and feels so light. It definitely didn't make my skin oily or greasy feeling. I did notice that this sunscreen clings to the dry patches on my skin; it makes them a bit noticeable, but it doesn't bother me too much. I would rather have my skin protected from the sun. Don't even think too hard about buying this face sunscreen, just buy it. It'll be the best one you have ever used." โ€”Suri

    Get it from Amazon for $13.

    2. An underarm scrub for clean, bright, and pretty armpits (can armpits be pretty??) so you can wear your tank tops and sleeveless dresses with confidence. This uses coconut, charcoal, apricot seed powder, and green tea leaf to soften and brighten. Though it's marketed for transitioning to natural deodorant, you can use it regardless for clean, nonsmelly underarms!

    Amazon

    This is paraben-, sulfate-, aluminum- and mineral oil-free. It's also vegan and cruelty-free and made with recycled material.

    Promising review: "This product is marketed for those transitioning from regular deodorant to natural. I use it every time I shower. This stuff is soo great! The scrub is not harsh and makes my skin soft and the charcoal lightens any darkness and purifies. The light smell of coconut is delicious! Not overpowering at all. Would absolutely recommend whether transitioning or not. It's perfect for everyday use." โ€”MiKu82215

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    3. An epilator to remove both thick and fine hair at the root so you can show off skin and go for several weeks without reaching for a razor. It has massage rollers and two speed settings for customizable comfort!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "It hurts but it works :) I haven't shaved my legs in months and used to have to every three to four days. I've seen the best results on my armpits; I used to shave them every other day but since I epilated two weeks ago, I've seen no hair growth and no hair shadow. Way more convenient than waxing, too, because you can target individual shorter hairs as they grow in rather than waiting for everything to grow back a certain length. Also IDK if this is true, but my grandma told me that after she used an epilator for five-ish years she pretty much stopped growing hair. It also hurts less every time you do it, so don't get discouraged by the very painful first session." โ€”k3upikachu

    Get it from Amazon for $39.94.

    4. A set of ice pop molds for satisfying your sweet tooth whenever you want! This'll bring the spirit of the season to your home and your taste buds.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    This popsicle tray comes with 50 popsicle sticks and 50 popsicle bags and even a little recipe booklet!

    Promising review: "EXCELLENT! love the shape of the pop. Cute and vintage-looking. Easy to unmold. No need to run under warm water. Just let sit in counter for a few minutes and it slides out with ease. Pop right into the plastic storage bags that came with it. The bags are great! I ordered more sticks and bags on Amazon. Nice that it makes 10 pops at a time. Stands up great on its own. I put it on a one-quarter-sized cookie sheet and placed it in the freezer." โ€”gina deriso

    Get it from Amazon for $21.99.

    5. A gorgeous cotton maxi dress that'll make you feel like you should be in a Jane Austen novel or that you should be frolicking in a meadow somewhere. It's got all the cottagecore vibes, which is a perf aesthetic for warm weather!

    Simple Retro

    Get it from Simple Retro for $69.99 (available in sizes XSโ€“XL).

    6. A Fenty Beauty Body Luminizer for that sun-soaked island glow all spring and summer long โ€” even if you've never even been to an island! Your body gets a lovely glistening sheen; basically, this is highlighter but for your bod!

    7. An A'pieu blush to give your cheeks a vivid ~juicy~ color that wakes up your face and leaves a natural dewy finish. It's time for dreamy spring-like skin!

    One of the best things about K-beauty is the range of affordable and quality blushes TBH.

    Get it from YesStyle for $7.79 (available in 10 colors).

    8. An Etude House lip tint that'll hydrate your lips with soapberry extract and tint completely, leaving you with bright fruity color fit for the sun. Plus, that ice cream packaging!

    Amazon

    I use this for everyday looks when I don't feel like wearing something heavy like lipstick. The color payoff is great and it doesn't fade easily, either. When it does start fading, the stain makes it look natural. The orange/peach one is my fave!

    Promising review: "It smells so good, feels good on the lips, leaves a great color stain, cute packaging, and doesn't cling to dry spots on the lips. Overall, very happy with this product. I would recommend and would repurchase." โ€”Jaylinn

    Get it from Amazon for $5.23+ (available in five colors).

    9. A pack of oil-blotting sheets made with natural bamboo charcoal to whisk away the oil on your entire face anytime, anywhere, any day. When you're out enjoying warm weather, oily skin can be a nuisance. No worries โ€” these sheets are soft, don't disturb makeup, and come with 100 in a pack so they last forever. Just blot and you'll be good as new.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    These have been my go-to oil blotters for years now. I love them and I think nothing else works quite as well! They're effective and make you look fresh again in seconds. I can't get enough and always buy two or three together for fear of not having any as backup when I run out!

    Get it from Amazon for $6.95 (available also in green tea).

    10. A bottle of MustKetch, which โ€” you guessed it โ€” is a delicious combo of mustard and ketchup. Spice up your fries, burgers, hot dogs, eggs, and all other summery foods you'd use those sauces on. Will you ever go back to plain ol' ketchup? Probs not.

    Promising review: "Wow! I donโ€™t know how this hasnโ€™t been thought of before. Combining mustard and ketchup is genius and the additional accents for flavor are amazing! Itโ€™s hard to pick which flavor of the combo pack I like the most and normally I just end up rotating through all three!" โ€”Zachary

    11. A bright, juicy, fruity floor cushion to spruce up your room decor, add some freshness, and get extra seating room to boot!

    12. A pair of high-waisted flowy wide-leg pants since nowadays, the last thing you wanna do is squeeze yourself into super tight jeans that won't let your legs breathe. These are flowy, add variety to your look (which tbh has just been black leggings), and are perfect for that breezy look!

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "These pants are so comfortable and chic! I love that they are wide-legged and flowy. They give you the same breezy feeling that you get with a maxi skirt. The material is super soft and the perfect weight for warm weather pants. The belted ties are just the right length and add a very feminine touch. The pant legs are very wide. I cannot wait for warmer weather to get here so I can wear this outfit!" โ€”Brittany Williams

    Get it from Amazon for $25.99+ (available in sizes 4โ€“10 and nine colors).

    13. A four-piece spring-themed nail polish kit so you can finally perfect your at-home mani skills โ€” you know, the thing you said you were going to do when quarantine started. This'll help you and your nails truly appreciate the pretty blossoms and blooming flowers before summer comes!

    Two of my coworkers, Elizabeth Lilly and Heather Braga, have these glasses and absolutely love them! The glasses have UV400 protection and come with a soft carrying case!

    Promising review: "For $10, I DEF recommend these. I love fun sunglasses and I love that these are a cheaper alternative to the YSL version. I think Iโ€™ll be getting another pair for upcoming festivals!" โ€”Audrey

    Get it from Amazon for $10.91 (available in 16 colors and in multipacks).

    15. An all-natural Sichuan chili sauce that'll give your food that hot, spicy flavor all your meals are missing because warmer weather = bolder flavor. Heck, put it on ice cream โ€” who's judging? Go bold or go home!

    FYI, this is included in Prime Wardrobe so you can give it a trial run if you're a member!

    Promising review: "Found this dress through a BuzzFeed article and couldn't resist the white sunflowers. The material is stretchy and just fits your body so well. I didn't have any problems with it being see through. The length is cute, the buttons are fake so they stay uniform all the way down, and it's stretchy across the back of the bodice so bigger-chested women would love this. My mom and I have completely different body types and the large fits us both amazingly! Definitely going to try to order as many prints as I can!" โ€”Courtney Clark

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in sizes Sโ€“XXL and 35 colors/patterns).

    17. A breezy and breathable tank top perf for your warm weather workouts โ€” you'll look dressed for the sun but be at ease at the same time!

    18. A pack of Schick dermaplaning razors to take care of peach fuzz, upper lip hair, chin hair, and any other stray hairs that annoy you. Reviewers say shaving peach fuzz also helps makeup apply more evenly so those spring/summer makeup looks will be๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ‘Œ.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This is the best face razor I have ever used. It took my hair off so easily. Extremely good quality. I am a licensed cosmetologist and do makeup on clients, and I feel like it makes my skin look flawless after I put my foundation on. I love these and will continue to purchase. Price is also good for the quality of the product." โ€”Megan

    "I am a licensed esthetician who performs dermaplanning services weekly on clients using medical grade blades. I got these for myself at home since Iโ€™ve always been a fan of Tinkle razors and hate peach fuzz. The amount of dead skin that is removed with these along with the peach fuzz is up there with my medical grade dermaplanning blades. Just be careful because they are sharp. Great for a quick touchup but definitely doesnโ€™t replace a professional treatment." โ€”Carli

    Get a pack of three from Amazon for $4.99.

    19. These textured platform sandals that'll add some major oomph to your sunny fits!

    Get them from Free People for $98 (available in sizes 6โ€“11 and in four colors).

    20. A watermelon slicer because it'll make having your fave summer snack a breeze. The slicer is so easy to use all your friends will ask you where you got it.

    The tool, which cuts cubes quickly and easily
    amazon.com

    It comes with a melon baller.

    Promising review: "This tool is so handy! I hate cutting watermelon and this is so fast and easy to use and easy to wash. I cut a watermelon in less than five minutes. It cuts yellow watermelon, too!!! The included baller is great for the small leftover, hard-to-reach places." โ€”Andrea

    Get it from Amazon for $11.27.

    21. A reusable exfoliating Japanese towel to upgrade your shower experience and truly take care of your skin so you can show it off more this season. These really scrub that dead skin off your bod (reviewers with eczema swear by it!) to unveil clean, super soft skin. Reviewers love how it's easy to reach your back with this too!

    amazon.com

    You can use this daily or weekly depending on how you feel about its abrasiveness.

    Promising review: "This is a holy grail to my sensitive skin and germaphobic personality! It does take time to get used to due to its rough feel, but once you start to use it daily, it's hard to use anything else! Nothing else gives me such a clean feeling on my skin during my showers. I use to have very bad skin conditions all over my body: eczema, body acne, dry patches, and dark spots. This helped clear basically everything, and now I'm more confident in showing my skin in public than I have ever been. It soaks up very nicely, and you can feel all of the dirt that's on your skin from day-to-day activities getting scrubbed off. The long length is great for reaching in hard to reach spots, such as your back. Since it's extremely rough, I would advise against using it on your face." โ€”Jay G.

    Get a three-pack from Amazon for $12.14+ (available in five colors).

    22. A pack of food spikes for indoor plants because you know what? You just don't have the green thumb for it.

    the spikes
    Amazon

    Each pack comes with 48 spikes.

    Promising review: "I have several houseplants that had stopped flowering, so I put a few of these spikes in the pot (there are directions on the back of package for quantity), and approximately a month after using these spikes, my peace lily had three flowers on it, and my African violets plants all got several blooms on them! This worked wonders for my plants that don't flower also! I noticed that my ivy and cactus plants started growing faster, and they became more green and healthy-looking. I am very happy with this product, and I will buy it again." โ€”Elizabeth

    Get a pack of 24 for $2.78 (available in three pack amounts).

    23. A bucket hat to shield your noggin from the sun but also take those warm weather looks from cool to COOL.

    24. A bug bite suction tool that'll provide almost instant relief from itchiness and remove insect venom, saliva, and other irritants left by a bite. No chemicals needed! You'll finally be able to step out for some sun without fear of returning with a million mosquito bites.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    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. 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 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!" โ€”Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $9.95.

    25. A nonstick electric George Foreman grill โ€“ it's especially perfect for apartments and small spaces because that shouldn't stop you from fulfilling your burger cravings on a perf sunny afternoon!

    Promising review: "I just recently moved into an apartment that does not allow charcoal grills! The first time I used this was inside. I barbecued my chicken wings; that was the true test, and they turned out FANTASTIC! Moist, grill marks, and very tasty. Next I grilled hamburgers...PERFECT! The juiciest burgers ever. I am hooked and impressed. It is very easy to assemble, and to clean. I use mine primarily on my countertop and it DOES NOT get the inside of the house all smoky." โ€”PG Girl

    Get it from Amazon for $109.99+ (available in two colors).

    26. A microwave s'mores maker because you can recreate the joy of camping and the magic of a summer campfire right in your kitchen. Yum!
