Beauty Board Spring 2013: Brighten Up, Nourish, and Repair!

By  March 01, 2013

Glam Beauty Board is back and this time we’re bringing you our favorite products for spring! Warm weather is almost here so it’s time to brighten up with fabulously fresh makeup (and our new favorite scent). We’ll also show you the best products for nourishing and repairing dreaded winter damage to your skin, hair and nails. Read on for our reviews!

1. Benefit Fine-One-One, $30
Nothing says fresh spring beauty quite like a fantastic cheek and lip stain. This pink champagne, sheer watermelon and soft coral blend creates a flush that pops on any skin tone.
2. Maybelline Rocket Mascara, $6
Effortless volume in an instant? Yes, please! We loved how this mascara didn’t clump and gave our lashes instant va-va-voom volume. The supersonic brush and fast glide formula gave us instantly flirty lashes.
3. Burt’s Bees Lip Gloss in Rosy Dawn, $9
If you’re a fan of Burt’s Bees chapsticks, get ready to be a Burt’s Bees gloss fanatic. This 100% natural pearly pink lip gloss gave us gorgeous shine without stickiness.
4. Kenzo Amour I Love You Fragrance, $57
This is hands-down our new favorite spring perfume, and soon to be our signature scent. It’s fresh and fruity without being overpowering, and the scent lasts all day.

1. Biolage ExquisiteOil Replenishing Treatment, $20
If your hair is like ours (seriously thirsty after a dry winter) then your locks will love you for this weightless oil. Use it when your hair is damp after the shower to control frizz all day and give your coif some serious shine.
2. Alessandro Nail Cream, $25
This is a product we didn’t even know we needed until we tried it and now we’ll never give it up. This luxurious cream softens nail beds so you can avoid dry and peeling skin around your cuticles.
3. EOS Ultra Moisturizing Shave Cream, $5
If you’re still using soap to shave, stop in the name of dry skin! This shave gel made from aloe, shea butter, and oat extract is so nourishing, you might even forgo lotion after your shower.
4. Gillette + Olay Razors in Sugarberry, $11
Speaking of shaving, this is hands-down our favorite razor, and a must-have for spring legs. Gillette’s five-blade technology exfoliates skin while the delish sugarberry-scented Olay moisture bars lock in moisture.

1. First Aid Beauty Ultra Skin Repair Cream, $28
Thirsty skin, rejoice! This skin protectant will revitalize dry skin in a snap. If your skin is particularly sensitive to dyes and perfumes, this a fantastic lotion for you. It relieves minor irritations and itching, and it’s also safe for your face!
2. Philosophy Miracle Worker Eye Cream with HPR, $65
There’s no way we could imagine our daily skincare routine without this eye cream. We’ve been using it day and night for about two weeks now and those pesky fine line under our eyes? Almost non-existant. Yeah, it’s that good.
3. Olay CC Cream – Total Effects Tone Correcting Moisturizer with SPF, $25
Moisture, SPF coverage, AND it fights to correct aging? Forget BB creams, CC creams are our new favorite. If you’re looking for a light to medium coverage tinted moisturizer, this is a must try.
