Beauty 411: Top Beauty Must-Haves for Spring

1. Ocean Salt

Price: $19.95 – $34.95 : Buy

Please excuse me while I yell this: THIS IS MY FAVORITE SCRUB, EVER. Okay, now that I’ve gotten that out of the way… let me just say, this is my favorite scrub, ever.

Washing with Ocean Salt is like taking your face on a trip to the seaside for an invigorating splash in the water. They mix in fresh avocado and coconut to hydrate thirsty skin, while the antibacterial effects of lime and vodka is ideal for blocked pores, blackheads or blemishes. The minerals in sea salt soften as it scrubs away dirt and blockages.

So yes, that’s vodka, sea salt, lime, avocado and coconut. While you might consider it a little bit pricy, believe me when I say this product goes a LONG way. It will last you a while and you will be amazed at the results. I speak from experience on this.

How to use

Splash water on your face and apply about a teaspoonful of scrub using an upward, circular motion to exfoliate and refresh the skin. Rinse thoroughly with clean water and pat dry. Ocean Salt can also be used on other parts of the body including chest, back, arms and legs.

2. Mint Julips

Price: $8.95 : Buy

Smooth, soft lips… always. Mint Julips is packed full of fresh peppermint and sweet castor sugar. Peppermint is responsible for that tingly feeling’ you get after brushing your teeth or using lip balm, so Lush thought it would make a perfect addition to our lip scrub! Plus, it makes Mint Julips tastes like a big, creamy bowl of mint chocolate chip ice cream.

For a flawless pout: Scrub Mint Julips over your lips (be sure to lick off the excess) and then apply your favorite lip color.

and that is why Mint Julips landed in at #2 on our “must-haves” list for spring.

3. Honey Trap

Price: $6.95 : Buy

After a little Mint Julips action, I love to follow up with Honey Trap. Honey Trap is filled with toning sweet orange and cooling peppermint to soothe dry, chapped lips. Rich honey moisturizes and melted white chocolate is part of that delectable flavor.

4. Karma Solid

Price: $10.95 : Buy

Last month, I clearly confessed that Karma is one of my favorite Lush scents. It’s no surprise either. With the combinations of Pine, Sweet Orange, Patchouli and Lemongrass, it’s hard to go wrong with a scent like that.

Take Karma with you wherever you go, dab it on your wrists, run it through your hair, you really can’t go wrong.

5. Dermalogica – Antioxidant Hydramist

Price: $38.00 : Buy

A refreshing antioxidant shield with flash-firming properties to improve skin texture, fight environmental assault and intensely hydrate alipoid, dehydrated skin. Contains no artificial fragrance or color.

After cleansing, spritz directly onto face and neck, avoiding the eyes. Also ideal as a refreshing spritz over make-up throughout the day.

We hope you enjoyed today’s Beauty 411 post! Stay tuned for next time.
