Spring Bloom: 5 Beauty Picks

Spring Beauty Products ©blaastyle


I stick to a beauty routine but I am also game to try out new products.   Here are 5 picks which may be just what you are looking for this spring.



Aesop Redemption Body Scrub contains finely milled pumice and bamboo Stem to polish your skin and prepare it for hydration. The fresh aroma of the essential oils of fir and pine needles, sage leaves and clove is calming. This scrub is softer on the skin than the Geranium Leaf Body Scrub that I previously used.  So I would recommend it if you have sensitive skin.




NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencils  are conveniently shaped like a jumbo crayon but apply like a lipstick.  Though matte in finish, your lips are saturated with a rich color and a long-lasting creamy texture.  The pencil format also makes it easier to draw the lip lines.




SHISEIDO Synchro Skin Glow is a moisturizing and luminizing fluid foundation.  Your complexion takes on a healthy-looking brilliant glow. It also benefits from a SPF20 and its hydrating formula is comparable to that of a BB cream. Indeed, it feels too rich when I apply the foundation over my day cream.  I suggest you use it without a day cream.



Rituals Dao Relaxing Serum and Happy Mist   Rituals is such an appropriate name – applying them feel like a deliberate self-indulgent ceremony leading to our beauty sleep.  Massage the serum on to your temples, forehead and neck.  You will feel the calming scent of Chinese mint and the softening effect of the Chinese Yi Yi Ren herbs. To enhance the relaxing experience, spray the sweet orange and cedar fragrance of Happy Mist on your body, pillows and bed linens (in fact on almost anything and everywhere).   Then, tuck in and think of pleasant things  ….zzzzz
