Beauty: Spring 2017 favorites

Phew! I did my best to pull all of my favorite beauty products of the past few months and let me tell you, it was no small feat. I probably forgot a ton, since I have tried so many amazing new products recently, but these are the ones who made the list this time around. 

Tangle Teezer - I can't believe how long it took me to try one of these cockroach-shaped hairbrushes. The hype is real, peeps. It is amazing and the whole family loves it. 

Vichy Mineral 89 Booster - I have been using this for about a month on my whole face, including my eyelids and lips (yes, you can!) and it locks the moisture in without making the skin feel heavy or greasy, which is what we want in the summertime. 

Benefit Hoola Lite Bronzer - This warm toned, easy to blend, buttery bronzer for lighter skin tones is perfect for everyday. 

Estée Lauder Bronze Goddess Whipped Body Creme - This body moisturizer is deliciously scented (the iconic Bronze Goddess scent is my all-time favorite Summer scent) and so incredibly luxurious, I actually prefer it to the actual perfume. The scent lingers on for hours, leaves your skin soft and moisturized but never sticky. I will repurchase this forever!

St.Tropez Gradual Tan Plus Luminous Veil & St. Tropez Gradual Tan Plus Sculpt and Glow - These gradual self-tanners for the face and body are absolutely amazing. They are easy to apply, blend, leave a natural yet noticeable color and don't streak (but yes, they make me smell like a wet dog - all gradual self tanners do. Is it just me?). The body lotion also promises to tone and hydrate - what more could you want?

Sun Bum coconut lip balm with SPF30 - Lip balms with a UV protection are not easy to find, especially not ones that smell as good as this one! I am partial to the coconut scent, as well as the affordable price. 

Sally Hansen Salon Manicure Nail Polish in Peach of Cake - Creamy, opaque, easy to apply with a wide brush and the perfect peachy coral shade!

L'Oréal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise mascara - I love drugstore mascaras but hadn't found a new one I loved in the past 2-3 years, until now! This one doesn't only feature a pretty chrome pink tube, it also has a fantastic brush that grabs every single lash. Just make sure you wiggle it really well at the bottom of your lash line the first few times you use it - it's the kind of formula that gets better with time haha!

Caudalie Beauty Elixir - This has been my one (fairly useless) beauty indulgence for years now, but I recently asked my best friend to bring me a new bottle back from Paris and it brought back so many memories (and yes, I know, it's available at Sephora).

Klorane Dry Shampoo with Nettle extract - I picked this up randomly and guys - this is the best dry shampoo ever! I have used Batiste (meh), Herbal Essences (okay), Dove (the scent is too strong) , Tresemme (horrible) and even the oat version by Klorane, but this one is life-changing. It is a little bit pricier but it is so worth it! You only need a small amount, it actually does absorb oil and makes your hair look voluminous without leaving a residue. I'm in love! 

Vichy Idéal Soleil Sport Ultra-Light Refreshing Lotion SPF60 - I try to be good about sunscreen, but I have to admit I hate the pasty, sticky white feeling of the residue it leaves on my hands and body (or on my son, for that matter!). But this one doesn't have it! It is light, fresh, a little runny which makes it easy to apply on a wiggly toddler, and has SPF60 which makes it even better. 

Have you tried any new products recently?
