I can't wait for spring to finally be here; it's been a very long winter here in New England. While the season won't officially be here for about two weeks, I have been testing some new spring beauty products that you are going to want to know about. Out of everything that I have been testing, there have been some true standouts that have made it into my everyday beauty routine. Take a look at my must have beauty products for spring.
Simple Skincare Cleansing Micellar Water
This is a totally unique cleansing product that will change the way you cleanse your skin. It contains the perfect blend of multi-vitamins and other skin loving ingredients suspended in what only can be described as water. I apply it to a cotton pad, soaking it, and wipe it on my face as I would a toner. It removes every bit of makeup, dirt and oils from my face with no additional rinsing needed. Skin is left soft, smooth, extremely clean (as in it removes EVERY bit of makeup from the skin) and hydrated.

Kérastase Fix Fabulous Extra Strong Hold Hairspray
Spring hair styles deserve to be held and my long bob is no exception. What makes this hairspray unique is that this one is non-aerosol, yet it almost sprays like one. It is not your ordinary pump hairspray. I am very impressed. It helps to set hair in place, especially when I am pulling hair back, or winding it behind one ear, wearing it up, etc.

Murad Rapid Collagen Infusion for Lips
A serum for lips? Yes! And you'll be addicted to it like I am once you start using it. I am using this as a lip primer everyday and I have noticed that my lip lines are smoothing out. This serum is fast-acting and designed to improve smoothness and texture by plumping the fine lines and wrinkles of the lips and around the mouth. It does this and leaves the lips hydrated at the same time.

Clinique Beyond Perfecting Foundation + Concealer
If you crave long-lasting, full coverage foundation that breathes, you need to check out this new foundation. What makes this one really unique is that this foundation adjusts to your skin whether it has oiliness or dry patches -- it's really different. I sometimes get oily around my nose but am super dry everywhere else and this foundation seems to know that. It applies with a HUGE doe foot applicator; dot it all over for lighter coverage or swipe it for more full coverage. It comes in 20 wearable shades.

Meaningful Beauty Ultra Lifting and Filling Treatment
This new dual-action serum lifts, fills and plumps skin as it gently fills in fine lines and wrinkles. I've been adding this into my morning and nighttime routine and I am definitely seeing a difference. The formula is infused with a rare, exclusive orchid extract that helps to support the healthy collagen and elastin production that is inside the skin so that it will help to restore the skin’s youthful appearance both instantly and over time.

pixi LipLift Max
This glossy lip plumper is a line filler and super hydrating lip gloss that is my new go-to on top of lipstick. It has a volume enhancing formula with a cooling sensation to firm and plump the lips. It comes in one clear, pearly shade (it looks pink in the tube, but goes on clear) that doesn't interfere with my favorite lip shades.

IT Cosmetics Hello Lashes Extensions
Just when I think I have found my favorite mascaras, I try another one and fall in love. This one is my latest favorite for weekends and nighttime, because honestly, it is almost too much for everyday. Yes, this mascara gives me lashes that wow. It features a 6-in-1 formula with a melted-fiber technology. That is a blackest black melted nylon fibers that are infused into the volumizing formula that make my lashes super long and thick. The brush is easy to work the formula into the lashes and the ball detailer it great to add extra length into the inner and outer corners to really open up the eyes.

Michael Todd Eye Eraser
I'm always looking for the best in anti-aging technology and this device fits the bill. This is a unique tool that helps to deliver your eye treatment products deeper into your skin using sonic, ionic and thermal technology. It's so cool. I dot on my eye cream as usual and then press the Eye Eraser on the area and it automatically turns on. I like how I feel the gentle sonic action and slight warmth as my cream or treatment is absorbed into skin. It can be used on other areas of the face as well.
