It is time to streamline your beauty picks for spring and I am here to help. Here are some of my favorite beauty products and tools needed for your spring cleaning tune-up.
1. This refreshing cleanser from Miracle Skin Transformer gently cleanses the skin by removing surface oils, makeup and impurities. Miracle Skin Transformer Hydroactive Cleanser is infused with the M3 Complex, a powerful botanical antioxidant blend. The Hydroactive Cleanser works to fight free radicals. Its whipped texture transforms into a soothing foam when blended with water. I love how it makes my skin feels fresh, hydrated and smooth!
2. If you are looking for something gentle, try this light foaming gel cleanser. Christie Brinkley Complete Clarity Facial Cleansing Wash is gentle on skin, yet gives strong cleansing action. It balances the skin's moisture while also removing makeup. I found it to be very effective, yet gentle.
3. Specially formulated for combination, oily and blemish prone skin, the Le Mieux Exfoliating Cleansing Gel is a deep pore cleanser that can be used daily. Infused with the natural exfoliate, Beta Acid, this oil-free cleanser helps eliminate blemishes and inhibit new breakouts by removing excess oil and dead skin cells. Formulated with 13 botanical extracts, the Exfoliating Cleansing Gel soothes and restores balance to the skin. You can really feel this one working!
4. Infused with marine extracts including algae extract and sea lettuce extract, this cream-based cleansing lotion gently melts away makeup and surface impurities. Le Mieux Phyto-Marine Cleansing Lotion works to soothe and nourish epidermal skin layers. The unique marine-vegetal formulation also softens, moisturizes and protects skin’s fragile elasticity. So refreshing!
5. This clean-rinsing fresh-scented gel cleanser is designed to cleanse thoroughly, while removing make-up. EmerginC Pomegranate Gel Cleanser is perfect for all skin types, especially sensitive skin. The pomegranate gel cleanser can be used morning and/or night to remove excess oil. Made with fruit and plant extracts, pomegranate gel cleanser will clean skin without drying. My skin feels squeaky clean when using this cleanser.
6. Show your hair some love by replacing your shampoo and conditioner with this fruit-scented formula that thoroughly cleanses without stripping natural oils, moisture, or compromising color. Unwash Bio-Cleansing Conditioner is an innovative take on the popular “co-washing” trend offers a streamlined, chic way keep harsh detergents at bay, while improving manageability and infusing volume in one step. It smells really good!

Hairbrush Cleaner is a mini-rake that gently clears bristles of hair, dust and product buildup. Your hairbrush will last longer, and remain as fresh and effective as the first time you used it. My brush was clear of unwanted hairs in no time.
8. Calling all braid fans, this is the headwrap for you! You can feel the difference with just one touch of a Scunci Braided Head Wrap. Inspired by the design and elasticity of luxury swimwear, this accessory is infused with comfort and style. Experience the soft sheen of the braid design that brings coziness to any look. I like how it blends into my hair. The brown one almost looks like part of my hairstyle.
9. Channel your inner goddess with this sensual, deliciously scented body cleanser. Seemingly like magic, the Rituals Cosmetics Foaming Shower Gel Sensation transforms into a rich foam on contact with water. Combining the ancient ingredients of sweet almond oil and Indian rose, Yogi Flow smells absolutely divine. I use this when I need a zen moment in my shower. It is calming and soothing.
10. This luxurious bath and body wash is blended with enriching Polynesian tamanu nut oil and moisturizing white lily extract. Molton Brown Gingerlily Body Wash uses aromatic ginger and cardamom to instantly refresh tired skin. Packed with moisturizing plant extracts and powerful antioxidants, the gel formula works into a bubbly lather that boosts circulation and rids the skin of toxins. I have fallen in love with Molton Brown body washes. They are so luxurious!
11. This award-winning BB cream is enriched with Vitamin C to help create bright skin. Lumene Bright Now Vitamin C BB Cream SPF 20 is a light, moisturizing formula that helps to even out the skin’s natural tone and correct small imperfections. It also protects against the harmful rays of the sun. Your skin will have a natural, even tone. This is great for covering imperfections, while still getting that SPF protection. Swatch shown below in Medium.
12. Smashbox Be Legendary Long Wear Lip Lacquer is a new boundary-pushing formula that delivers maximum high-lacquered color with major comfort. It goes on as a lacquer, then uniquely adjusts to a stain for 8 hours of long-lasting color. This formula pushes saturated, long-wearing color to the limit by literally maxing out the amount of staining pigments. Then by mixing it with glossy-finish pearls and conditioning vitamin E, you get a velvety, lacquer-like finish that stays put without feeling tacky or drying. This really stays put and does its thang. Swatch shown below in Keepsake.
13. Don't let this one scare you. On the leading edge of acne treatment technology, the illuMask Anti-Acne Light Therapy Mask uses acne-clearing wavelengths of blue and red light. Why? The blue light kills the bacteria and the red light boosts your natural cell turnover and healing process. This will calm inflammation, clear and smooth your skin. Light therapy is a safe and effective skin care technology that uses a combination of light wavelengths to treat skin conditions including acne. I noticed improvement when I had a recent breakout with problem skin. Very easy to use and quite reasonably priced.
14. This handy set of two professional grade stainless steel tweezers with precision tips will take care of all your tweezing needs. The Slant Tip and Point Tip Tweezer Set includes one Slant Tip Tweezer, and one Point Tip Tweezer.
