Summer is just around the corner and it’s time to get serious about your beauty regime. Right on schedule, we have put together a list of some products we loved and tested out during the month of April to help you relax and refresh for all those forthcoming summertime parties.
Leaves of Trees Lavender Tangerine Deodorant
We’re big fans of natural deodorant since antiperspirant has all kinds of bad stuff packed into it that unnaturally stops your body from sweating. Not only are we huge fans of local beauty brand Leaves of Trees, we recently discovered their delicious smelling Lavender Tangerine Deodorant which instead of a roll on, comes packaged in a tube to be applied once in the morning like a cream to last all day. Nobody likes to smell, but unlike other natural deodorant, Leaves of Trees actually works to mask the smell of sweat without stopping your body from perspiring. Find select Leaves of Trees products at Pink Tartan or shop there entire product range online.
Ojon Rare Blend Oil Rejuvenating Therapy
Keeping your hair fresh during seasonal changes is of the upmost importance. The Ojon Rare Benld Oil offers revitalization and protection for damaged or fragile hair. This will assist in increasing shine and reducing that horrible frizz that pops up from time to time. This product is formulated without parabens or sulphates which is always a bonus.
NARS x Christopher Kane Illuminating Multiple in Violet Atom
This soft pinky purple multiple is one of the coolest new products in the NARS x Christopher Kane collaborative capsule collection. It shows up almost glistening white with a touch of pink and a subtle hint of purple, adding a delicate shimmer to wherever you choose to shine the spotlight on your cheeks, lips, or even eyes. We love this product for the warmer days of the month!
Bumble and bumble Surf Foam Wash Shampoo
Nobody likes limp hair! Textured hair has made its mark on the runways this year, and continues to become my most favourite way to style hair. The surf foam wash shampoo helps to achieve texture and wave by washing away any impurities while keeping hair smooth to the touch. Pick up your Bumble and Bumble Surf Foam Wash at your local Sephora.
Make Up For Ever Smoky Stretch Lengthening & Defining Mascara
Mascara’s are always a game of hit or miss. Most have established a favourite brand, that they almost fear to stray from. I was like this; completely addicted to Maybelline until I was lucky enough to attend the MUFE Spring Preview and discovered the Smoky Stretch Lash. This mascara is beyond phenomanal, and designed to grip lashes from the base through to the tip, lengthening and separating simultaneously. Not only does this product work but it is opthamologist tested as well. Bonus!
SEPHORA COLLECTION Colorful Shadow & Liner in Violet
Feeling a little deprived of daring lip colours? Did you know that makeup for your eyes like liners and shadows can also be used on your lips (they often go through more rigorous testing than lip products!)? These Sephora Collection Colorful Shadows & Liners are not only waterproof, they also come in over 30 colors. We can’t wait to rock this violet shade all festival season for that perfect long-lasting high pigment.
Fresh Sugar Rose Extreme Lip Treatment SPF 15
Easing into poppier spring summer colours is a synch with Fresh’s new limited edition Sugar Rose Extreme Lip Treatment. It’s the same formula as the cult classic lip treatment we know so well, with the addition of rose oil for added hydration. It also comes packaged like a lipstick in a gorgeous metal floral printed tube and is free from Parabens, Sulfates, Phthalates and is also SPF 15!
Tata Harper Aromatic Irritability Treatment
The Spring months are usually busy ones. Dealing with the daily grind and preparing for the Summer months ahead can cause some unwanted stress. Ergo, Tata Harper’s Aromatic Irritability Treatment. Created with a blend of Roman Chamomile to soothe, Bergamot’s fresh floral and lemon scent to cheer, and Patchouli to stabilize the mind. This product will immediately aid in decreasing irritability and help you to enter complete relaxation mode. Tata Harper Products are available online at www.tataharper.com.
Sigma’s The Brilliant and Spellbinding Eyeshadow Palette
The Brilliant and Spellbinding Eye Shadow palette is by far one of the most exquisite palettes available for Spring and Summer 2015. The palette includes twelve bronze-shimmer shades in matte and frost to achieve that perfect beachy glow. This palette is available at sigmabeauty.com.
