*I received these products for review*
Spring in your step, spring forward, spring cleaning-I’m cool with spring. This year, I got started a bit early with my spring clean and am 80% ‘done’ (just 2 more closets to tidy up and those are going to be doozies!). Spring is also a great time to make some changes to your beauty routine. Check out the products below-these are some great additions to my spring regime!
Herbal Essences Repair argan oil of morocco shampoo & conditioner
Raise your hand if you wish they would bring back the Herbal Essence commercials of the 90’s-I KNOW you all know what I mean (but in case you don’t, check out one of the original commercials here). I never completely fell ‘out’ of love with this line-the ‘naked’ shampoo is a great clarifying shampoo that I slip in 2 times a month. I tend to use salon professional shampoos & conditioners, but I did try this one and it is quite nice. It is incredibly hydrating, and leaves my strands feeling nourished. I find myself wanting to touch my hair more after using these. The scent is beautiful-it’s what I would term an ‘exotic floral’
Fun fact: The shampoo & conditioner are made in a plant that matches electricity with renewable wind credits.
Olay ultra moisture shea butter body wash
I love body washes that have that ‘extra’ hydration component. The ‘lock in moisture’ technology infuses skin with moisture without leaving it feeling greasy. Spring is the perfect time to incorporate a product like this into your routine-your skin is still trying to recover from the dry, bitter winter temperatures. I still apply a lotion post shower but find that adding a hydrating body wash helps keep me flake free all day.

Crest 3D White Supreme flexfit whitestrips
I’m all about the pearly whites year round but when I want to wear my spring lipsticks, having my teeth be their best shade of white is important. Dental bleaching kits from the dentist are great-but they cost big $$$$. These Crest whitestrips do the trick and are easy to apply.

And there you have it. I’d love to hear about your ‘spring cleaning’ routine (in regards to beauty).
