Beauty: What's New This Spring?

Aside from new fashion trends for this season, there is also tons of new make up and beauty stuffs filling the shelf's in my bathroom at the moment!

Here's some of the stuff I have bought and tried out and some new ones to look out for!

1) Loreal Extraordinary Clay shampoo & dry shampoo

The latest line up to Loreals hair range is the Extraordinary clay range, with a shampoo, conditioner, hair mask and dry shampoo. 

Promising to banish the most annoying of all hair types of which is one I  have, washing hair definitely can't go over more than every other day as the oilyness starts to set in..ewww. The clay collection seems to be a dream come true. 

I excitedly bought this to try out along with the dry shampoo to see what results I would have, unfortunately,for me, I found they actually made my oily hair issues worse! 

I have tried using the shampoo by using it away from my roots, knowing that shampoo build up can make hair heavy and greasy. Having tried for about 3 weeks now but have gone back to my old faithful Loreal Elvive (weak, limp, lifeless) shampoo! booo!

If you are wondering if it is literally like clay, don't worry it isn't! it still looks like any other shampoo apart from it has a pretty light blue colour. 

I have also got the clay mask hair stuff but have been put off trying it as I've had a negative experience with the shampoo. 

The dry shampoo spray on the other hand is great! It removes oil and makes your hair feel healthier, shinier and like you have just washed it, just as good, if not better then my usual Redken spray! It has a really lovely scent too - top marks for that one but would not recommend the shampoo I'm afraid!. 

2. Garnier Skin Care 

I am a recent convert to Garnier having not got on well with many of their other products which I found over scented for my sensitive skin which would then irritate it. 

I since saw a few ads for micellar water and thought at first it was like paying for a bottle of water, but then after seeing a couple of other bloggers rate this one I went in to Boots and bought a bottle. 

I have had this one a little while now limitedly as it its a spring release but it is prob now a new feature in my make up routine I will try and stick to. I have tried before with make up removing routines and am the ultimate lazy girl when it comes to removing my make up. 

With micellar water it clenses and gives your face a nice fresh feel - more so than you would get from just using water and as there is no perfume it doesn't irritate my skin as face wipes do or make my skin oily.   

My other pick is a tester I got in my London Fashion Week bag - Garniers latest offering -  The Garnier Moisture Bomb. I have been really impressed with this little one and used it  whilst I had my awful flu bug the other week and it definitely helped keep my skin hydrated and made me feel alot better after applying as my skin around my nose from blowing it so much, got really really dry!. 

3. New Make up from Maybelline, Bourjois & Loreal

I have also updated my spring make up as well!

 I bought the new dream blender from Maybelline (remember dream mat mousse?!) well this is a new style of foundation sponge that they have now released since LFW. 

Its an interesting design compared to standard make up sponges which I think is really clever, it has a pointed tip which allows you to reach those annoying tiny corners around your eyes, mouth and nose. Its also edge free which makes it super easy for make up nubes like me to apply make up and blend foundation in. What's more, it has a handle so no messy fingers! If I had to say something I dislike it would be that it has an odd smell (I know that sounds really weird!) but it does even once its out the packaging. hoping this will go away though after giving it a clean - its still top marks for this one anyway! 

To match my new blending sponge I also picked up a new baby skin primer which can be used under make up. there are three types in the range including the Pore Eraser, and the Instant Fatigue Blur Primers in cool rose (pictured above) and apricot. The baby skin range is another new fave of mine as I have been using Maybellines Dr Rescue for my sore lips during winter so though I'd try another product in the range. I really like the primer and love how it goes on effortlessly under make up and leaves my skin feeling flawless. 

I also have picked up the Loreal True Match Concealer as it's something I never usually buy (no reason but just never have) to try and get in the habit of using it to make me look more awake in the mornings! I wanna try out the True Match foundation and Infallible foundation both by Loreal as have heard good things about both of these with even comparisons being made to NARS foundation! Am waiting for mine to run out before I pick one of these up though! 

Lastly, I also bought a new lippy as I have felt a little lost without my lippy recently with my matte lippys making my cold winter lips feel even more cracked! This one is from Bourjois and has a lovely shiny look without stickyness or looking too eveningwear like, and is available in a range of plum shades (my faves!) 

4. Protect and strengthen hair with protein spray

This was also a gift in my LFW bag but I can definitely say I'll be getting another bottle. its makes my hair feel so soft after washing and after blasting with a hair dryer. My hairdresser also has commented that it feels stronger and not nagged about a hair cut since.. hmm! 

I will be looking at other products to try in the Label M range for sure. Unfortunately these are not available on the high street but you can get them on look fantastic .With prices between £3.95 and £17.50 I don't think the prices are too bad. 

5. Favourite Spring Scents

Lastly, I try to always get a spring/summer scent that makes me feel good. I finally managed to get my hands on the Prada Candy perfume and is still my fave since it first came out a year or so ago! Its a spring/summery scent though so I do tend to swap it for something else in the winter but for the next few months Prada Candy is where its at!
