Spring is almost here, which means it is time to freshen up your hair and skin care products! Every new season, I like to go through my collection and discard any expired products or products that I no longer need or use.
I tend to let my long hair air dry. I usually wrap my hair in a microfiber towel for a few minutes which seems to decrease drying time. I am so thrilled to try the Aquis Waffle Luxe Hair Towel to dry my hair. I love the length of the towel, however the width could be a big wider. I only need to wear the towel for a few minutes! With the Aquis Waffle Luxe Hair Towel, I wash on a low cycle, cold water and allow to air dry. I don’t find the need to wash the towel after every use either.
I rarely have the time or energy to style my hair. However, when I do, I do like to curl it or put it up in a pony tail. The Scunci Hollywood Half-Up is a great idea to give yourself a nice up-do at home!
Having long hair, I like to add volume. When I curl my hair, I also like to add volume to my roots! The Infiniti PRO by Conair Ultimate Root Booster Large Round Brush is perfect for just that. I can boost my roots and my curls!
When Spring comes around, skincare is just as important. My face does not need a heavy moisturizer anymore. I stick with a cleanser, serum and moisturizer. I also like to keep my look fresh throughout the day.
I start my day with cleansing and then moisturizing my face. The MALIN+GOETZ Recovery Treatment Oil is gentle on my face and absorbs quickly. I then follow with the DDF Advanced Firming Cream which is not heavy or thick at all. Surprisingly, the cream absorbs in just a few minutes. I apply both the oil and cream on my face, neck and decollete in the morning and evening. I added both products to my skincare regime with no issues. Both products work fine under my makeup as well.
I have heard of the latest makeup craze of using a silicone makeup applicator because it offers less wasted product. I had to give it a try. I had high hopes! Would the silicone makeup applicator be a game changer?
After attempting to use the The Makeup Drop only a few times, I am disappointed by the results. The first time I tried using the applicator was with my pressed powder foundation. There were no instructions, so I tried apply my makeup without adding water and I quickly found out that didn’t work. I ended up reaching for a regular makeup brush to apply my pressed powder foundation.
The second time I attempted to use The Makeup Drop was with my liquid products that include: Primer, CC Cream and Foundation. First, it felt odd applying my primer with the silicone applicator. After a bit, my primer started to flake up on my face! I then tried the CC Cream and Foundation.
What a mess.
My makeup didn’t even set into my skin, it just sat there on the surface, so my liquid products just make my face look wet. I’m sticking with my makeup brushes.
I like to freshen my look throughout the day. I like using Lumene Sisu Defend & Replenish Antioxidant Mist as it smells divine! I only use a few sprays on my face and neck and it dries quickly. I can also use a few sprays on my arms. I use the Lumene Sisu Defend & Replenish Antioxidant Mist over makeup, throughout the day and even at night. It sprays with a fine mist and does not leave my skin feeling sticky at all. It feels refreshing! It is travel friendly (TSA friendly) and I can easily keep it in my handbag when we are out and about.
