It’s officially spring, and best of all, it actually feels like it.
Saturday went up to a high of 18 degrees (celsius of course), so naturally the jackets were left outside and I even busted out the flip flops (to be fair, I did go get a pedicure). Anyways, a new season means new beauty products and with summer coming up, that means this body needs to get in tiptop shape. I’ve been stepping up the fitness routine a lot lately, but skin, hair, and teeth is also super important. P&G Beauty sent over some goodies to get a headstart on spring beauty and get radiant skin and shiny tresses.
Starting in the shower, I always have a bottle of Olay body wash. Since my skin is slowly transitioning from dry and scaly to moisturized and soft, the Olay Ultra Moisture Body Wash helps speed up the process. The formula contains a lock-in moisture technology that infuses skin with moisture without leaving a coated feel, perfect for your after-show moisturizer.
Speaking of, I’ve always been a fan of Olay moisturizers and one of my favourite lines from them is the Regenerist one. I always apply a serum before my moisturizer both morning and night and the Regenerist Miracle Boost Concentrate is a lightweight emulsion that is designed for layering below the Olay Micro-Sculpting Cream to boost skin’s absorbency with hydration and improve elasticity for a lifted appearance. The Micro-Sculpting Cream is an old favourite of mine and they recently re-engineered the formula to enable skin cells to act younger and deliver visible transformative results (it’s also super hydrating and gives you younger-looking skin).
For hair, I was so excited to try out the new Herbal Essences Bio:Renew Argan Oil of Morocco shampoo and conditioner. Bio:Renew is their new formula which features a signature blend of essential antioxidants, aloe, and sea kelp that help revive lifeless hair with every wash. It also contains no parabens, gluten or colorants and this formula is safe for colour, and gives hair instant repair, shine, and frizz protection.
After the shower, I always use a few styling products, one of which is always a smoothing serum. The Herbal Essences Bio:Renew Argan Oil of Morocco-Infused Creme strengthens and repairs hair against residual winter damage and frizz. It also smells amazing (which is always a plus!). Once my hair is dry I usually curl it and rely on a hairspray that keeps the curl in check but is also movable and not sticky. The Herbal Essences Bio:Renew Flexible Hairspray contains 0% parabens, gluten, colorants, and alcohol and it’s formulated to control frizz, provide moisturized, touchable hair and all-day humidity protection (a must for those hotter spring days).
Finally, little odds and ends, deodorant is a must for everyday and although I’m not that picky when it comes to the brand (I do prefer a solid as opposed to a gel though), I do often pick my deodorant based on smell. The Secret Fresh Collection Deodorant Invisible Solid has some springtime fragrances that are formulated with a scent-enhancing technology that tracks odours and replaces them with something more pleasant. I work out a lot, so the sweat-activated technology is a must for me.
Finally, I brush my teeth every night but sometimes they need a little help when it comes to whiteness. I rely on Crest Whitestrips to add some sparkle and shine to my smile. The Crest 3D White Whitestrips Supreme Flexfit uses an advanced technology called Flexfit that allows the strips to stretch and mould to a custom fit, perfect for any smile. I remember back in the day when Crest Whitestrips first came out and I found the strips would get so soggy and start to fall off after about 20 minutes. Not these. These guys have come a long way and this particular set form to your teeth and latch on for a comfortable wear.
I’m totally digging all these new P&G Beauty products for spring, and since a lot of them are staples, I love sharing (and learning!) what new technologies they are putting in their products.
What are your staples for hair, skin, and teeth for the season?
