Did you spring ahead this week?  The weekend seemed to go by so fast, but it was nice that it was lighter longer.  It was 70 degrees today and I loved it!  So looking forward to spring and summer this year!

Below are some fun picks for hair care, sun care and makeup to help you spring ahead in style!

Brighten up your hair this spring with fun temporary colors! Two I have recently tried are:

Soft and shimmering makeup is perfect right now!  It will definitely help chase the winter away.

Hard Candy Glow All The Way Ombre Blush ($7 USD) — Add warmth and luminosity to your cheeks with Hard Candy Baked Blush. It will give your complexion a soft glow. I like that it applies softly, but can be build to a brighter flush!

Hard Candy Face & Body Luminizer, Doll Face Pink ($8 USD) — Get glowing and show off your glamorous side, using Hard Candy Luminizer, Doll Face Pink. This luxurious body and face luminizer illuminates all skin tones with a pearlescent glow. Shimmery and pigmented, the Glow All The Way Hard Candy Luminizer gives your skin lasting, radiant shine.  A little goes a long way to give your face a glow and can also be used on the shoulders and décolleté for a fun evening look!

The Hard Candy Plumping Serum Volumizing Lip Gloss ($6 USD) — will give a glamorous appearance to your lips, creating the most desired pouting look. The lip plumper lip gloss features an attractive shimmer that will automatically make your lips look fuller. The lip gloss is ideally suited for those who like sheer colors. I don’t see a lot of plumping with this, but it does give shimmer and shine and has a nice minty taste to it.

SwimSpray ($15 for 4 oz) –SwimSpray uses a patent-pending vitamin C technology to immediately neutralize the chlorine on your body – eliminating the residual chlorine that can damage and irritate your hair and skin.

Product Round-Up — My Fave Beauty Things Week of August 25th!

My last week of August was hot and exhausting, so glad it’s the long weekend! I have been trying products sent to me for review that are great for the end of summer.

This week I have been enjoying a yummy scented body wash, a night skin treatment, two amazing eye shadow brushes, spray to remove chlorine from hair, tinted brow gel and healthy wheat grass tablets (I am trying to get healthier).

Neutrogena Rainbath  Renewing Shower and Bath Gel - Pear and Green Tea
Neutrogena Rainbath Renewing Shower and Bath Gel – Pear and Green Tea

Neutrogena Rainbath® Renewing Pear & Green Tea Shower and Bath Gel ($8.49 USD) — softens and conditions skin without a heavy leave-behind residue. With its unique fragrance blend of pear and green tea, Rainbath® works to renew the look of your skin as the rich, moisturizing lather rinses clean. Your skin is left in better condition feeling softer, smoother and truly renewed.

What I think:  I love all of the Neutrogena Rainbath washes, and this is one of my favorite scents.  It’s fresh and sweet-scented, and my skin is clean and very soft after washing.  I love using it as bubble bath.

Available at drugstores and mass market retailers near you.  You can learn more and purchase at http://www.neutrogena.com.

Miracle Skin Transformer Triple Active Night Cream
Miracle Skin Transformer Triple Active Night Cream

Miracle Skin Transformer Triple Active Night Cream ($68.00 USD) — This multi-purpose cream combines the beauty benefits of three different creams, exfoliating skin, moisturizing and fighting daily environmental aggressors at once. It also helps combat signs of aging and dull-looking skin, leaving behind a more radiant and youthful appearance with regular use.

What I think: I have been using this every night for about a week.  When I apply it, it leaves sinks right into my skin, without leaving it greasy.  In the morning, my skin is so soft and smooth.  And very glowy!  This is a good product if your skin is dry and dull.

Available at http://www.hsn.com.

MUA Pro All Over Shadow Brush($10 USD) and MUA Pro Crease Brush ($10 USD) — The shadow brush has full and rounded natural fiber brush for a perfectly even wash of color from lid to brow bone. Superior shape and tapered bristles glide shadow over a large area, creating a flawlessly even distribution of pigment in one easy sweep. Perfect for an all-over wash of shadow, highlighting the brow bone or tucking color into the eye crease.   The crease brush is the perfect size to apply a darker shade just into the crease.

What I think:  Both of these brushes are now my favorite eye shadow brushes.  The all over shadow brush works well from brow bone down to lashes and the crease brush is amazing!  Gives just the right amount of pigment for my crease.  Love!  They are both made very well and are gorgeous!

SwimSpray Chlorine Removal Spray

SwimSpray Chlorine Removal Spray (4 oz $15, on sale for $11.95 USD at Amazon) — an all-natural solution that completely eliminates chlorine from hair and skin with a new vitamin C technology that neutralizes all lingering chlorine other swimmer-specific hair and skincare products leave behind without using additional chemicals to do so.

What I think:  This is such as smart idea.  You rinse your hair, apply SwimSpray, then shampoo.  It cleans all of the chlorine and chemicals out of your hair and leaves it clean and soft.
