My Beauty Faves Week of March 30-April 5, 2015 Part 1

Spring sure is here now — and Easter is tomorrow!  We have been having alternating rainy and sunny days.  It is crazy, but it is Spring in Kansas City!

This week I am loving a hydrating hair mask, fragrant body wash, affordable moisturizer, fun spring scents and spring green makeup.

Aviva Keratin Renewal Masque

Aviva Keratin Renewal Masque ($39.95 USD, 7 oz) — Lost that lustrous feeling? Everyone’s hair can use a boost from time to time. Infused with keratin and essential nutrients, this reconstructive hair masque repairs damage and restores elasticity while protecting from the drying effects of UV rays. Aviva’s lightweight formula will leave hair noticeably more hydrated and healthy looking with a smooth and shiny finishSuitable for all hair types. Color and heat safe and it’s a UV Protectant, Paraben-free, Sodium Chloride-free

What I think:  This is a perfect product to make hair very soft!  My hair is dry after the cold winter and the masque helped hydrate and restore it.  I think it will also be good on frizzy hair that I get during the humid summer.  I like that it has natural ingredients, too!

Caress Forever Collection

Caress Forever Collection Body Wash — The Caress Forever Collection is the world’s first body wash with Fragrance Touch Technology. The breakthrough technology of Caress Fragrance Release Pearls™ releases bursts of perfume with every touch of your skin. The collection combines sensual floral notes to create a fine fragrance for up to 12 hours. The body wash comes in two fragrances, Love Forever and Adore Forever.

Love Forever

Top Note: Mandarin Orange and Peach                                                              Heart Note: Scarlet Red Rose, Peony and Freesia                                                 Base Note: Sandalwood and Vanilla Musk

Adore Forever

Top Note: Raspberry and Cassis                                                                        Heart Note: Angel Face Rose and Muguet                                                            Base Note: Amber, Honey and Vanilla

What I think: Both scents of these are so nice!  I think that Love Forever is a little sweeter and Adore Forever is a little sexier.  The only thing is that I don’t really smell the fragrance on my skin very long after my shower. Other than that, this is a fragrant body wash and it leaves my skin soft and moisturized!

Purchase at mass market retailers near you.

All under $10, these delightful fragrances are great for day time, date night, a quick-pick-me-up, and are even great to stow in your gym bag for a quick post-workout spritz. Please see below for more information on scent offerings.

The scents I have tried are Japanese Cherry Blossom, Sweet Berry Fantasy, Vanilla, Pink Sweet Pea and Twilight Mist.

What I think:  These are so much fun to spritz on!  They are fun scents that can be layered together.  I like combining a sultry scent like the Vanilla or Twilight Mist with The Sweet Berry Fantasy or Pink Sweet Pea.

Available at WalMart and drugstores near you.

As it is finally getting green in Kansas City, I am loving green hues for eye makeup:

Add a pop of color to lids with VMV Hypoallergenics Two True Hues in Shaken & Stirred ($40 USD).  Infused with virgin coconut oil, these gorgeous green shades provide superior hydration to lids with serious staying power. Available at vmvhypoallergenics.com.

Transform eyes with Maybelline New York Eye Studio Color Tattoo 24HR Cream Gel Shadow in Edgy Emerald ($7.99 USD). This long-lasting, creaseless cream-gel shadow will stay on all day.   Smooth onto lids for an instant dramatic eye that everyone will notice.  Purchase at mass market retailers.

Line lids with Rouge Bunny Rouge Feline Gaze Eye Kohl in Selene ($25 USD) for a smoldering eye look with intense color.  This creamy pencil liner glides smoothly over the lids and leaves a luxurious satin finish. Available at RougeBunnyRouge.com.

What I think:  All three of these products stay on all day.  If you just want a pop of green, the eyeliner is perfect.  Or go for drama with one of the eye shadows!
