The Beauty Products To See Me Through Spring

Sunday, 2 May 2021

 


Spring is a-springing, and now that £1 bunches of daffodils are gracing our supermarkets and I only need to wear my big coat every other day, I'm starting to switch up my beauty routines in readiness for the warmer weather. 

My beauty routines have changed a fair bit since last spring, so I thought I would share a little bit of my up-to-date favourites and tell you all about the products that are going to see me through the coming season!


The Body Shop Body Yogurts

I first tried the body yogurts last summer and they are a GAME. CHANGER. They're a lightweight body moisturiser, perfect for the spring and summer months when I'm getting my legs out a bit more regularly! They absorb almost instantly, so I love using them in the morning when I can pop it on and get dressed without having to wait for the product to sink in. They leave skin feeling super-hydrated, and they smell ah-ma-zing! My favourites are the Almond Milk one, and the Mango one, especially for the morning because it smells so zingy and refreshing!

St. Tropez Purity Tanning Mist

Now that the sun is starting to come out a bit more regularly, I've found myself craving a summer glow to accompany my midi dresses. St. Tropez has been my favourite self-tan for a good few years now, and the Purity Mist is just so easy to use, especially for someone like me who is RUBBISH at getting it even and patch-free. The glow is subtle and natural-looking, which I love because I don't risk looking orange! It isn't the cheapest self-tan on the market, but I've tried more budget-friendly options and I just haven't loved them as much, so I always return to St. Tropez!

Revlon ColorStay Foundation

I'm all about a full-coverage foundation in the winter and a BB Cream in the summer, but I've struggled to find something in-between for the in-between months. But the Revlon ColorStay foundation has become a firm favourite of mine which I'll definitely be using all the way through Spring. I use the version designed for normal/dry skin as I love a dewy finish, and the coverage of the ColorStay foundation is lightweight but easily buildable for days where I feel I need a little bit more. But it doesn't sit heavy on my face or cling to dry patches. And it lasts all day, which is no mean feat when you're sitting in an office for 10 hours a day with the air-con on full blast!

Urban Decay Naked Cherry Palette

This is hands-down my favourite spring palette ever! Once the sun starts shining a bit more regularly I want to play around with colour in my make-up, and I love creating pretty, girly looks with the Naked Cherry palette. The range of shades in the palette, from soft mattes to deep cherry shades to the stunning shimmers mean I can put together completely different looks depending on my mood, and I find myself reaching for it most days!

[PR PRODUCT] Dermalogica Prisma Protect

Far and away my FAVOURITE Spring/Summer moisturiser, and I will repurchase it over and over again. It has SPF 30, which is essential all year round but especially when the sun comes out a bit more, and it's lightweight but also moisturising enough that my dry skin doesn't feel parched halfway through the day. And the GLOW it gives is just incredible! I pop it on and my skin not only feels super-soft, but also looks radiant and ready for my make-up.

The Body Shop Vitamin C Sheet Masks

I'm all about a glowy complexion in the spring, so Vitamin C is a must-have ingredient in my skincare routine. Sheet masks tend to be a once-in-a-while treat, especially for when my skin needs a little bit of a pick-me-up, and The Body Shop does my favourite sheet masks. They're completely bio-degradable, which makes me feel less guilty about sheet masks not being the most environmentally-friendly, but after 10 minutes with a Vitamin C mask on my skin looks more plump, radiant and glowing. Perfect for before make up, and to give your skin a little boost before heading out.
