Let Your Spring Style Bloom with a New Personal Care Routine

Post sponsored by Mirum. Opinions are 100% my own.

I am counting down the days until spring is here. I cannot wait until all the flowers bloom and warmer weather is surrounding me; it’s just a few short weeks away!

I am already starting to get my personal care routine in-check with a new batch of Unilever must-haves from Albertsons/Safeway. There’s no better time to stock up because right now you can earn rewards and prizes on your purchases to get yourself ready for spring! I’m talking head-to-toe during the Take A New Look Rewards program.

Right now, when you shop at Albertsons, you can choose a $10 reward when you spend $30 on participating Unilever items AND enter for a chance to win personal care products, too!  I’ve got ALL the details on exactly how to get your rewards, the first 1,000 giveaway and sweepstakes below.

First, I want to share my must-have Unilever products that I am using to get myself prepped head-to-toe for spring.

Starting at my head, my hair, I have been incorporating the TRESemme Botanique Sulfate Free Hair Line into my routine. Because I color my hair, using a sulfate-free formula is very important to me. TRESemme  Botanique is a collection completely free from parabens and dyes, to help reveal hair’s natural beauty.

Not only do I LOVE the scent of the Botanique Nourish & Replenish with Coconut Milk & Aloe Vera Shampoo and Conditioner, but I am liking what this duo is doing to my hair. My hair feels more hydrated; it is left silky soft with a lot of shine and I feel like it is more manageable since I switched from the shampoo that I had been using.

Next up, on my face I have been cleansing with Simple Water Boost Micellar Facial Gel Wash.

I have talked about my love for Simple Skin Care often, but I have recently started using a few products from the Water Boost line to get my skin ready for spring. My skin has been so dehydrated from winter, so this lineup of products is perfect. They are lightweight AND hydrating; the formulas help to reverse the five signs of dehydration.

Simple Water Boost Micellar Facial Gel Wash has been a great addition to my routine as it not only removes all left-over makeup that wipes may miss, but the gentle power of micellar cleanser bubbles are super effective are getting rid of oil and dirt without over-drying my skin.

Speaking of dehydrated skin, my entire body has been super dry, so I needed to add in an exfoliating product to use on my body. I turned to one of my longtime favorite brands, Dove for this. I had been curious about the Dove Exfoliating Body Polish and I was excited to see what it could do for this dull skin.

I chose the Dove Exfoliating Body Polish with Crushed Macadamia & Rice Milk and I am obsessed. This exfoliating scrub is whipped, rich and fragrant — it gets the job done. Not only are dead skin cells buffed away, but skin is left extra soft and smooth because Dove Body Polish is made with Dove’s unique ¼ moisturizing cream. I am using it every other day right in the shower.

Finally, I needed to seal in my soft skin, and for that I selected Love Beauty and Planet Coconut Water & Mimosa Flower Body Lotion. I have wanted to try the Love Beauty and Planet ever since I saw it at Albertsons.

Love Beauty and Planet was created to make you more beautiful and give a little love to our planet. How great is that? Their approach is a holistic one, encompassing the entire product life cycle and beyond.

There were a few body lotions to choose from and I really like the scent I picked. It’s very hydrating and quite refreshing. The lotion sinks into my skin fast and leaves it soft all day.

My new routine has me feeling refreshed and ready for spring. Now onto the rewards!
