Springtime Beauty


With spring warming things up right around the corner, it’s time to look at the season’s hottest beauty products.

For unruly tresses that seem almost unmanageable, Rowenta has introduced the Versa Style Iron, a five-in-one compact iron that does the work of a flat iron, roller set ad three curling irons. It heats up in less than 30 seconds and will give you glamorous locks in just a few seconds. Our hair was transformed from frizzy to fab with the iron’s even ionic heat distribution, which won’t break hair.

To get your hair in healthier condition, try Ouidad’s Curl Recovery Melt Down Extreme Repair Mask, which is designed to nourish the hair while preventing breakage. Its unique formula includes Mafura Butter and Kalahari Melon Seed Oil to coat the hair shaft. The result? Our dry, brittle hair was transformed into manageable smooth tresses.

Another great hydrating product is the OGX Luxurious Moroccan Argan Crème Sheer Opulence Masque. This super luxe formula smoothes the outer layer of the hair cuticle for soft, shiny locks. We love how soft and hydrated our hair felt after just one use.

If you want to leave your hair curly, try KMS California moisture repair line of products. Right now, we are loving the Moistrepair Revival Crème, a leave-in conditioning treatment that restores the hair’s natural moisture. Say goodbye to dry brittle hair. Your new look will have beautiful curls that are manageable.

With the springtime comes new scents and The Body Shop knows that all too well, which is why they have introduced the special edition blueberry collection. We love cleaning our skin with the body scrub and bath sponge with adorable blueberry face before nourishing our skin with the beautifully scented rich body butter.

When it comes to cleansing your skin, we use the Blue/Black Berry Enzyme Mask by Ole Henriksen. The luxe scented mask not only smells great but works to hydrate skin with sodium hyaluronate and lavender. Use just a couple of times a week after cleansing and your skin will feel smoother, rejuvenated and refreshed.

To give your eyes a quick refresh after a bad night’s sleep, try G.M. Collin’s anti-aging instant radiance eye patch. In just 20 minutes, the patches dramatically reduce the appearance of fine lines, puffiness and fatigue. The soothing eye patches provide instant relief to tired eyes.

Before heading to bed, be sure to protect your skin with Restorsea’s restoring night cream. While you sleep, this intense product works to hydrate the skin and reduce fine lines. The cream includes a natural enzyme released during the baby salmon hatching process to hydrate the skin as well as Vitamin C to reduce age spots.

Finish off your new refreshed look with Susan Posnick’s ColorEssential lip color. Right now, we are loving the Marrakesh nude color, a lightly tinted bronze that gives just the right amount of color to our pale winter skin. The lip color comes in a compact case with a magnetic closure to keep the cap secure. Each is formulated with olive oil, Vitamins A and E for hydration, pomegranate for protection and panacress, a South African plant with antioxidants to reduce the appearance of fine lines.

With your new look comes a new scent. We love Perry Ellis’ America perfume, which contains light scents of floral, including magnolia, daylily, and lilac. You can almost envision a July 4th summer day at the beach with scents of fresh ocean air. Not only does offer designer name fragrances but they also have an entire collection of skincare, hair care, makeup and aromatherapy products at reduced prices.
