Shampoos and serums and makeup remover, colorful polish and skin that feels smoother / nothing is better than beauty in spring / these are a few of my favorite things!
The temperatures are rising, the sun is shining, and lately I’ve been thinking about all my favorite beauty products for spring! So I thought now would be the perfect time to share them with you…
Spring is a time for renewal – and when it comes to revitalizing your skin, nothing beats Avalon Organics Vitamin C Renewal Cream. This lightweight product is easy to use and contains a nourishing combination of free-radical fighting antioxidants, soothing botanicals and skin-smoothing ingredients. Plus, it’s natural and smells absolutely wonderful! (It also comes in oil-free variety for sensitive complexions.) I typically use this product before bed.
My all-time favorite daily skin product is CSI Super Hyaluronic Moisturizer. Why? First of all, it’s so light and creamy – just add a few dabs to your fingertips and apply to your face and neck before putting on sunscreen and makeup. The hyaluronic acid adds an incredible amount of moisture (you’ll want to keep touching your skin – but don’t!), while protecting the skin against potential damage. Bonus: it’s free of parabens, synthetic preservatives and artificial fragrance.
If you’re still sporting winter frizz, it’s time to give your hair a little springtime TLC. Try my favorite cruelty-free combination, Giovanni Smooth as Silk Deep Moisture Shampoo and Conditioner. Each one is specially formulated to nourish damaged hair, control frizz and support softer, shinier strands. It’s also perfect for those of you out there who can’t live without your flat-iron and blow-dryer (you know who you are).
Ouch! Getting that new shade of shadow off your lids at the end of the night can be a painful experience. Give your skin a break with one of my favorite products, Beauty Without Cruelty Gentle Makeup Remover. This formula uses the power of natural botanical extracts and vegetable glycerin to gently remove your coveted cosmetics – even waterproof mascara! No irritation, no oily residue – just fresh, clean skin!
Splash of color:
Hues of green and blue are in this spring – and who doesn’t love a little sparkle? I think Barielle Shades Nail Polish in “Myrzas Meadow” is the perfect color – a cheerful green with a healthy dose of glitter! Don’t forget that springtime also means sandal season is upon us — for newly liberated toes, I recommend water-based Suncoat Girl Forever Fuschia.
