Fresh Spring Beauty & Skincare Products

Spring is the perfect time to rethink your beauty products, it's a great time to try and test out new products.

Spring brings out lighter colours, so shed those heavy auburn and red tones and opt for lighter shades of pink, floral scents to bask in to lift your mood and lay to rest those sandalwood fragrances and reach for those lighter creams.

If any brand can convince me to invest in their beauty products, then the gods at & Other Stories have spoken to me. There beauty and skincare products are nice light and won't break your the bank. I purchased two products whilst only going in for a new top, but low on hand cream and the beauty counter right by the till, (great add-on selling) it would have been rude to of not perused. A sucker for good packaging and a hint of pink, a little dollop, and massage into hands of the Miami Muse hand lotion is totally uplifting and invigorating, it's a delicate light scent of pink pepper, cotton candy, and musk and romantic refreshing light cream for Spring and I just knew this was the cream I needed this Spring. I also purchased the body mist in Miami Muse great size perfect to pop into my handbag and both items costing me less than £10 I certainly left with a spring in my step, and soft supple hands and smelling like a spring dream. 

I have always been a fan of Glossier, the packaging and branding also, but never tried any of their products, so when I found out last year they were launching FINALLY in the U.K. And a pop up store to celebrate, which unfortunately and annoyingly I had to miss due to work commitments, I finally got round to ordering a few little products. The first product I tried was the cloud paint, in the shade Haze it was love at first apply, granted with my heavy hands I squeezed out a tad too much I know that this super lightweight liquid blusher is going to last. Regrettably, Glossier are not sold in stores, but I was able to find the shade I was after this Spring with the models on site of different colouring and how it looks applied makes it easy for you to choose. 

Rodial Skincare Dragon’s Blood Velvet Cream I first used last year winter which I was sent with my MINTD Box, but now I have recently repurchased and use as my day cream. Rich enough for me to use on its own without an oil underneath and light enough for all-day use, especially as my days of late have been starting at 5am and does not leave the skin feeling cloggy and heavy, but glides on like water and leaves the skin hydrated. Perfect for anyone who has dry to combination skin. 

The smell of Decelor's Aurabsolu Intense For Eyes is simply divine, not only just smells heavenly it works wonders too. This under eye brightening cream works wonders, especially for those who suffer from dark circles or had a sleepless night. the perfect under eye brightener to lift your face in time for Spring. 

Now whilst this may not be a beauty or skincare product, I adore H&M's affordable candle scents. This scent, Wild Flower is a little nostalgic for me as it reminds and takes me back to the Lavender fields with Leanora, chasing her through the fields.
