Spring is finally in the air and I could not be happier!! Flowers + trees are finally in bloom and I just want to lay in the sunshine streaming through our windows! There is just something about Spring that brings such a bright + happy feeling. There are always so many cute new patterns + colors that start showing up all over in stores in both fashion + beauty. I love refreshing my typical beauty routine with a few new additions when Spring rolls around. So today I’m sharing with you the 7 beauty items ( some tried + true, some fun + new) that I’m loving for Spring!
I’ve told you guys 1000 times before that I absolutely love Tula. Their Purifying Cleanser is no exception and one of my very favorite items from their line. My face feels so clean and refreshed, but it doesn’t leave you with that tight dry desert face feeling after using it, like a lot of other face washes. It is full of probiotics to help nourish your skin. It is a higher price point than your average face wash, but you barely have to use any to wash your whole face and I promise it is the cleanest it will ever feel!
FACE CREAM : If I could shout from the rooftops about one beauty product it would without a doubt be this one. This Hydrating Day + Night Cream from Tula is without a doubt my very favorite item in my whole beauty routine. Living in Utah, especially going through the winter, your skin can get SO DRY. I love that I can use a tiny bit of this moisturizing cream and it instantly transforms the look and feel of my skin. It is not too heavy feeling either. You never have that greasy shine that a lot of hydrating creams do, just a nice clean glow. Like the face wash it is full of probiotics + is like a super food for your face! If you were to invest in any one product for your beauty routine, this should hands down be the one.
LIP SCRUB : This lip scrub is a new find for me and I am already in LOVE! I’ve always loved a good lip scrub. Who doesn’t love silky smooth lips?! All of the scrubs I’ve tried in the past have to be wiped off after using them. But with this one, you put it on just like a lipstick and can wear it all day because the little exfoliators disappear. Once they are gone it just leaves a soft rose tint to your lips and they feel amazing! And the smell! Oh my gosh you’ll die. I want to buy it for every single one of my girlfriends!
PREP + PRIME : When it comes to tried + true products for your lips, this is mine. I kind of feel like it is my secret weapon to wearing lipstick. It feels just like a chapstick, and you apply it the same. It smooths and preps your lip (just like the name says) for your favorite lip color!
LIPSTICK : I have been a Mac lipstick addict for years and years. It is always my lipstick of choice. I feel like the pigment is perfect and love the creamy texture. I get asked all the time what my every day lipstick is and it is always Mac Angel, but I love this new shade to add to my line up too!
NAIL POLISH : I don’t know about you, but having my nails painted is a must for me. For some reason I feel like it makes me feel more put together and ready to take on the day. With a busy schedule, I don’t always have time to head in to the nail salon, so I love having the option of good polishes that will last for at home use.
MAKEUP WIPES : I’m not sure about you, but traveling or not, makeup remover wipes are a MUST. I use them every single night before I wash my face to take off my makeup. I’ve tried a couple of brands and I always go back to these. I especially love them for traveling!
Also think any of these would make for some great Mother’s Day gifts!! I have given my sisters and mom at least half of these at some point. haha.
