Spring is here! Well, weather wise, almost. And that means your skincare routine is shifting to better suit your needs! We want to reveal brighter, luminous skin to match our bright spring moods! As you're looking to transition your skincare, you ought to consider Burt's Bees Brightening Line. For brighter, more even toned skin, this line uses a "unique formulation of White Daisy Extract, known to regulate skin’s melanin production, combined with a multi-fruit complex." Sounds perfect for skin right? And the White Daisy and refreshing scent will get you in the right frame of mind for Spring. 

I have been using three products from this line: Burt's Bees Brightening Refining Tonic, Burt's Bees Brightening Even-tone Moisturizing Cream, and Burt's Bees Brightening Eye Treatment

Burts Bees 3.25.14

After using my daily cleanser, I then apply the Burt's Bees Brightening Refining Tonic (98.9% natural). This tonic, like most toners, removes excess dirt and makeup left on your skin even after cleansing. This tonic also helps improve surface dullness of your skin for a brighter, more even toned complexion. If you're hesitant to shift some of the products in your skincare routine, this refining tonic is a great way to add in brightening benefits with one simple step. 

If you're in the market for a new spring moisturizer, Burt's Bees Brightening Even-tone Moisturizing Cream (99.0% natural) is worth a try. After using your toner, apply this moisturizer to help even your skin tone and help diminish the appearance of dark spots and discoloration. I like that this moisturizer has a light luminous finish which instantly brightens my complexion. It also has a very refreshing fragrance. This product is definitely moisturizing and takes a few minutes to absorb completely. I prefer to use it as a night cream, which works very well for my skin.

Smashbox Eye Brightening Mascara 6.18We all want photo ready eyes, right? Bright, bold, clear, and noticeable! But with all the different types of mascaras out there, it can be overwhelming to know what type will suit your eyes. Curling, lengthening, volumzing, waterproof, etc...how does a girl choose?? Well, hopefully I can give you a little insight on a great mascara and help ease the selection process.

Smashbox’s Photo Op Eye Brightening Mascara is my new go-to mascara. This is a 3-in-1 mascara that curls, lifts, and brightens giving you that wide-eyed look you love! It has a blend of mica, titanium, and blue pigments to enhance the whites of your eyes and brighten to create that open-eyed effect. This mascara hit a number of marks for me, as I said, it’s my new go-to! I cannot stand mascara that smudges, flakes, clumps, or is too stubborn to take off at the end of a long day/night. But this Smashbox mascara was a much-needed relief from my mascara woes. It goes on clean (no clumps or flakes), really lengthens my lashes, and is long wearing but still comes off easily with makeup remover. It separated my lashes nicely, without clumping them together, and my lashes lifted up well for that wide-eyed look. A great tip from Smashbox: Always apply to the top AND bottom lashes for a totally wide-eyed look. This really made a difference for me, so keep it in mind!

At $20.00 Smashbox Photo Op Eye Brightening Mascara will continue to be a staple in my makeup bag!

But if you're looking for a good save option, check out CoverGirl Exact EyeLights Mascara designed to bring out the color of your eyes with clump free lashes. I usually like CoverGirl's mascaras so this would be a good one to try! You can find CoverGirl Exact Eyelights Mascara for $8.17 on Amazon

Cleansing is my single most important beauty ritual. No matter how exhausted I am at the end of the day, I always take time to wash off my makeup, the sweat from the gym or the grunginess of the day.  I have used countless cleansers with varying results. Soap & Glory’s Soap & Clarity 3 in 1 Daily Detox Vitamin C Facial Wash is surely up there as one of my favorites. This wash is full of Vitamin C, which has been used for centuries for its many health benefits.

Soap and Glory facesoap clarity certified fabulous 6.3.13It's been centuries since British sailors discovered the key to avoiding scurvy: vitamin C. Vitamin C plays a vital role in maintaining the health of your skin. Those sailors and others who couldn't get fresh fruits and vegetables suffered bleeding under the skin, ulcers and joint weakness. That's because vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, is key to the production of collagen, a protein that aids in the growth of cells and blood vessels and gives skin its firmness and strength. Vitamin C also helps create scar tissue and ligaments, and it helps your skin repair itself. Vitamin C’s skin-health benefits are largely attributed to its benefits in supporting healthy collagen. Collagen works hand-in-hand with elastin to support the skin. Basically, it supplies the framework that provides form, firmness, and strength to the skin, while elastin is what gives skin its flexibility.

Modern medicine has come to realize why these herbal remedies were so trusted by ancient civilizations. When topically applied, vitamin C provides a skin-rejuvenating effect by improving collagen synthesis in the skin that slows down with aging, as well as limiting skin damage from free radicals. I believe the Vitamin C in this product helps contribute to its effectiveness.

This face wash is described as “A high-tech, gentle non-drying foaming facial wash, formulated with complexion-friendly, easy-rinse surfactants and special SUPERFRUIT™ PLUM skin brightening complex.” I used this wash for the first time in the shower. It has a very clean and fresh fragrance. I immediately loved the little scrubby bits suspended in the light green gel like formula. I love a wash that combines exfoliate properties, scrubbing always makes my skin feel clean. It was defiantly an “easy rinse” cleanser as it washed away nicely. What stands out most with this product was how clean my face felt after cleansing, without leaving my face tight and dry. I tend to have a shiny forehead, but noticed this was remedied after using this wash. I would truly recommend this product to those who have problem skin, oily skin, or for those who wear makeup and need a really thorough cleanser.
