10 Things to Add to Your Spring Beauty Line-Up




Spring is finally here in upstate New York and I am soaking in every second of sunshine possible! I have been using the 10 products below religiously to spruce up my daily skin care & beauty line-up and I can't wait to share them with you!


SKINCARE


One Love Organics Moisture Mist


This mist smells so good and is really refreshing. I use it as a toner morning & night, but it can also be used throughout the day to refresh your skin.












Beautycounter Vitamin C Serum


Ok, what's not to love about this product? First of all, the packaging is spring itself. Second of all, the product is JUST as vibrant yellow and smells like citrus. Third, it actually works. I've been using this Vitamin C Serum for the past 5 weeks and have seen a massive improvement in the overall tone and brightness of my skin. I use this after my toner in the mornings.








Beautycounter CounterSun SPF 25


In the instance I don't put Dew Skin (shown below) on in the mornings, I use SPF right after my moisturizer, especially now that we are outside 90% of the time. This SPF is super lightweight and perfect to wear after your skincare routine or under makeup. I'm definitely taking this on our trip to FL in April and plan on wearing it alllll day long.








MAKEUP


Beautycounter Dew Skin


This product is a holy grail product. I use this daily as it has SPF in it and gives my skin an even and glowy skin tone with minimal effort. It's basically a tinted moisturizer that has SPF and makes you look like your face has a tan. Hello, what's not to love???












Smith's Minted Rose Lip Balm


This lip balm is honestly a guilty pleasure. It has a heavenly, lovely rose smell that screams spring with a minty feeling when its applied to your lips. It also has a reddish/pink hue so it adds an effortless spring pop of color! I keep this in my bag and use it throughout the day.




Beautycounter Cheek Pinch

in Hibiscus


This was added to my makeup bag 2 weeks ago when I was doing my spring refresh and I have been loving it. I ADORE products that serve more than 1 purpose because when a mom is doing her makeup, anything that saves time is a PLUS. I pop it on my cheeks, down the bridge of my nose, and on my lips and I have the perfect shade of spring pink for my cheeks & lips done!








Living Libations Blushing Balm


This is the other balm that I use on my cheeks & lips. Living Libations is an awesome brand that my friend introduced me to and I have to say, their blushing balm is one of a kind. It is really easy to apply or to throw in your bag to use later. It is more of a red tone than the Hibiscus Cheek Pinch I talked about above, but I also sometimes use this on my cheeks, nose, and lips when doing my morning makeup. Love!







Beautycounter Highlighter in

Pearl Glow


Who doesn't want a little fresh spring glow? This highlight is in stick form which makes it super easy to apply and it adds that perfect little glow to your makeup. I put this on all the high points of my face - brow bones, bridge of my nose, cheek bones, cupids bow, even my jaw line.






Beautycounter Jelly Lipgloss in Orange Cream


My last makeup item that I have been reaching for over & over for spring is the Jelly in Orange Cream. This flavor of lip gloss is too good. It honestly smells (and tastes) like Orange Cream and I love the orangey red color - it reminds me of carrots & bunnies. 🥕🐰








+ EXTRA AN GOODIE


Soft Lavender Clean Deodorant


This last one might be the most spring of them all! LAVENDER deodorant -- and its CLEAN ingredients. So, when I first heard about "clean" deodorant I was skeptical, but when I tried it myself, two things stuck out.

1. It smells so good.

2. It actually WORKS all day!


This is the scent I've been using daily and it's been so nice to start my day with this lovely lavender smell.
