A Spring Beauty Round Up

I feel like I've been anticipating the start of Spring for weeks (even months) now, so now the weather is slowly, but surely starting to warm up I've start to reshuffle my beauty and makeup routines. Although we're not even half way through April yet, I wanted to share my top Spring beauty picks with you today focusing on skincare, body care and hair care.

I'm so glad that the Herbivore Coco Rose Body Scrub has been a hit as I had high hopes and it hasn't disappointed. I was expecting it to rid my body of any dry patches I've got from being bundled under layers of clothes throughout Winter, but I didn't expect it to actually leave a lovely nourishing layer of oil on the skin which doesn't just sit on top, but sinks in too! It's a dream to work with and if you use this a few hours before your tan, it looks flawless. 

Talking of tan, I've been trying a new one, the Isle of Paradise Self Tanning Water and at first, I've got to admit I wasn't sure. There's no guide to it which means it wouldn't be great for beginners, but once you've used it once and now how it works then it's honestly amazing. The colour is a gorgeous sun kissed bronze and even though I got the dark one it doesn't look unnatural. I've got to talk about how long lasting it is too - wow I've never known a tan to stay in tact for a week without any flaking and how slightly evenly fading. Definitely one to check out if you're a regular fake tanner. 

Part of my wanted to save the Soap and Glory Smoothie Star Bodycream* for the Autumn when I first sniffed it because it smells so delicious and comforting, but I couldn't resist delving in and now it's a firm favourite. It's lightweight and sinks in ultra-quickly which is perfect for the warmer months when you quickly want to leave the house, but it's still moisturising without causing breakouts which is what some formulas do to me. 

Fun fact, I've actually never owned the Fresh Soy Face Cleanser* in a full size, but over the years I've had a dozen or so generous samples that slowly made me fall in love with it. When the cleanser arrived in a parcel from World Duty Free I was so happy as I finally got to use it after being without it for over a year. It's a simple one that does the job perfectly, removing makeup and making my skin feel smooth too. 

I have to give a quick mention to the IGK Jet Lag Dry Shampoo for saving my hair multiple times over the past couple of weeks when I needed to add some volume to my limp hair and when my middle parting looked a little too greasy. It's expensive for a dry shampoo, but it works wonders without adding too much "grit" to your hair, plus it gets better as the days goes on - even still reaping the benefits the following day.
