Best of Spring 2011: Skincare

March 30, 2011

When the temps start to head up (please let it be soon) we all know that it means a bit more upkeep to our normal beauty routine, especially when it comes to our skin. Let’s be honest, we show more of it when the weather is nice. Here’s a look inside some of my latest favorites when it comes to taking care of my skin…

1. Benefit Cosmetics Triple Performing Facial Emulsion, $28

Benefit’s new b. right! skincare line smells like a  dream and this facial emulsion feels like pouring water into your skin. It’s super hydrating, lightweight and best of all? It’s got SPF15 which is just what you need as we head out to play in the sun more this season.

2. Tocca Pink Tulips & Green Apple Rich Body Cream, $45

I mentioned this Tocca lotion briefly a few weeks back and even since then I have fallen more in love with it. The scent is dreamy (not to mention perfect for spring as it  features tulips and green apples) and it keeps my skin feeling moisturized without a thick, goopy formula. Thanks to this lady for introducing me to it!

3. Bare Escentuals Deep Cleansing Foam, $20

Bare Escentuals, like Benefit, just also recently made their foray into the skincare realm and this cleanser is by far my favorite in the line. It’s super rich and creamy and feels a bit like a facial when used in the shower (I use once a week, most often after the gym – with this little guy – as it gets my face feeling squeaky clean).

4. Rosebud Perfume Co. Rosebud Salve, $6

I’d always seen this lip salve around, but never tried it until I moved to New York and found it was nearly impossible to beat the chapped lips I was facing at all times. This rosebud balm is a perfect mix of hydration and healing while also topping your pout with the perfect amount of shine.

5. Bliss Lemon + Sage Soapy Suds Body Wash, $18

My mom and I both love this body wash from Bliss (hence, its appearance on this list) for its awesome smell that’s both invigorating and fresh. The bottle lasts you forever and you’ll surly love using this whenever getting oh so fresh and so clean.
