Hey guys! I know it’s cold outside, but with warmer weather right around the corner, I wanted to give you all a taste of my top ten favorite products for spring so you can all be prepared to strut into the new season looking and feeling your very best!
Here they are in no particular order (I love them all equally!!!).
Laura Mercier Bonne Mine Healthy Glow for Face and Cheeks: I absolutely love this palette! The colors are beautiful and natural, giving you a natural flush and glow into your face. When swatched onto my skin, the colors came out much brighter. The bronzer was great as a contour – so apply this underneath the cheekbones, nape of the neck, just along the jaw line and the temples of your forehead. My favorites were definitely the glow veils; they looked great as a highlighter for the inner corners of my eyes, just above the cupids bow of my lip, along the cheekbones and brow bones. Side note: I also used both cheek veils as lipstick because they are quite matte with no shimmer, so it gives your lips a natural pouty color. Also don’t be afraid to blend with your fingers as it melts the product and makes it easier to work with. Recommendations: I would recommend this palette for anyone, it’s easy to use and the colors will resonate well on both light and dark skin (as it is a highlighter). I – for one – love cream blushers and highlighter. All-in-all, this was a great buy.
Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance Serum: This satiny serum is a remarkable formula for smoother, brighter-looking skin. Vinoperfect boosts the complexion’s radiance and appearance. Your skin is moisturized and your complexion looks even, luminous and beautifully radiant. Benefits: Enhances radiance, tone and clarity. Recommended for: All skin types. For those of you who are sensitive also, the formula is paraben-free!
CeraVe Moisturizing Cream: CeraVe was developed by dermatologists and uses a patented formulation that provides a protective barrier on the skin’s surface. This special formulation, called Multivesicular Emulsion, ensures the moisturizer will be time-released throughout the day for complete hydration. CeraVe also uses Ceramides which help the skin to retain water. This is especially good for those with extremely dry skin or skin that dries out half way through the day. One application will last the entire day. CevaVe Moisturizing Cream is fragrance-free, so it’s great for those who are sensitive to fragrance in their skin care products. This product is an all over body moisturizer; you can use it on your face as well as the rest of your body. I know that many of you may shudder at the idea of putting the same cream on your face and your body, but you’ll have to trust me and try it – you won’t be disappointed.
The Body Shop Vitamin C Energizing Face Spritz: This amazing spray helps maintain normal cellular turnover & builds collagen. It contains L-ascorbic acid, which is essential for cross-linking collagen molecules, lightens and brightens skin, reduces inflammation, decreases transepidermal water loss and boosts your skin’s ability to protect itself from the sun. Wear Vitamin C Energizing Face Spritz every day for a more youthful and glowing complexion. Tip: Keep this in the fridge! The cool sensation on a hot day is incredible! (more…)
