Springtime Favorites!

Springtime FavoritesI tend to constantly rotate between my favorite beauty products, regardless of the season, and when I find something I love, I use it all year round.  These are a few of my favorite products this Spring, which I am sure I will be using for a very long time.

  1. I received the Perlier 8-piece shower & cream mini set from the iFabbo SHOP a few weeks ago and I have been in love with it ever since.  Perlier is an Italian skincare line sold exclusively on HSN.  The kit includes a shower gel and lotion/cream combination in the following scents: Honey, Olivarium, Shea Butter with Citrus Extract and White Almond Body Cream.  Each shower/body combination smells amazing and is extremely moisturizing.  With summer just around the corner… this kit is perfect for traveling.  If you’re not familiar with Perlier, I recommend getting the kit and trying out all the scents.  My personal favorites are the Honey and White Almond Extract!  Make sure to use coupon code iFabbo5 for $5.00’s off your next Perlier purchase on HSN.com. Happy shopping!
  2. I’ve been using the Kiehls Super Fluid UV Defense SPF 50 sunscreen for at least two years and I don’t think I’ll be switching anytime soon.  This sunscreen is ultra light, oil-free, has SPF 50 and it’s perfect for sensitive skin.  Read my full review here.
  3. Since I’m using SPF 50 on my face, it pretty much guarantees that my face will not be getting tan (or wrinkly for that matter), so a bronzer is must for me.  I love the Smashbox Bronze Lights in Suntan Matte because it gives me a hint of a natural, matte glow.  The color is very natural and buildable, so you can go as dark or as light as you’d like.
  4. I’ve been using the Guerlain Meteorites Light-Deffusing Perfecting Primer  for some time now, and I’m still very happy with it, but I’ve been wanting to try out the bareMinerals Prime Time™ Foundation Primer – Oil Control, for some time now, so I decided to go for it during my last trip to Sephora.  I love that this primer is for problem and/or oily skin, and thankfully I have not broken out.  This does a great job at creating a smooth canvas for my makeup application and keeping my foundation in place all day.  I still have a bit of shine at the end of the day, but nothing that a blotting sheet can’t fix.
  5. A toner has always been part of my beauty regiment and I’m always on the look-out for a new one that could help brighten my skin.  I’ve been dying to try some of the SK-II products for some time so I decided to start my orientation with the brand with their Whitening Source Clear Lotion.  The toner/lotion has a moisturizing and exfoliating formula that helps to clarify the skin, by removing dead cells from the skin’s surface, leaving skin clear and healthy.
  6. There’s not a better feeling in the world than finding amazing beauty products at affordable prices.  I found this NYX blush in Peach (don’t let the name fool you, the blush is a matte baby pink color) thanks to Marlena from Makeup Geek.  I’ve been looking for a nice matte pink blush for some time and this one fit the bill.  The color is very sheer and silky and simply glides on the skin… and at $5.00 it’s definitely a steal!
  7. My obsession with Korres continues with the Korres Wild Rose + Vitamin C Advanced Brightening Sleeping Facial.  The cream is described as a facial in-a-jar and address uneven skintone and dark spots while improving skin quality for a brighter, more luminous complexion.  This cream feels incredibly luxurious and smells heavenly.  I always put it on the night before an event and I wake up to brighter skin.  Click here to read about my other Korres favorite.
  8. I absolutely love Tom Ford and his makeup line is no exception.  I got this Lip Color Shine in Insidious while I was in London Heathrow a few weeks ago and I absolutely love it.  It’s a combination between a lipstick and a lip gloss.  It conditions, moisturizes, and delivers a color with lustrous shine.  With ingredients such as soja seed extract, Brazilian murumuru butter, and chamomilla flower oil, this is definitely a top of the line lipstick.  It’s a bit pricey, but worth every penny.
  9. Last but not least, my most recent obsession…  Philosykos Eau de Parfum from diptyque.  I’ve been a huge fan of diptyque candles for quite some time (Feu de Bois is my favorite) but I’ve recently discovered their perfumes from a friend and I’ve been hooked ever since.  Diptyque describes Philosykos as “wooded and racy,” perfect for summer nights.  This will definitely be my go-to perfume for the Spring and Summer.
