My 5 Beauty Must-Have For Spring

Apr 3, 2012
Korres Wild Rose Face and Eye Serum ($48.00 CND)
This serum is formulated with wild rose oil, a natural source of vitamin C, which helps enhance skin's clarity, brightness and elasticity. It leaves my face feeling smooth and soft, and my skin looks radiant and more even-toned. I even noticed that it reduces redness as well as under-eye circles. I like the fact that a little goes a long way and that it does not contain harsh chemicals. And let's not forget the very delicate and pleasant rose scent, divine.

Lise Watier Sensational Kiss ($20.00 CND)
At first glance, this lip balm may appear like a clear lipgloss. But it's much more than that. It contains fine sugar crystals, which are designed to exfoliate the lips and remove dead skin cells. It smells very sweet, it has a wonderful taste, it's easy to carry around and it's absolutely addictive to apply. Love it!

Marcelle BB Cream ($22.50 CND)
Marcelle is the first company to have launched a Canadian-made BB cream (as in Beauty Balm). This multi-purpose product claims to offer eight benefits in one:
- Evens out skintone
- Hydration
- Anti-aging
- Skin regeneration
- Shine control
- Soothes and calms skin
- Reduce appearance of imperfection
- Adds radiance

It comes in two self-adjusting shades, it is light and creamy and it is easily blendable into your skin. I like to use this product the same way I would use a tinted moisturizer because the coverage is on the lighter side. What I like the most about this skin-enhancer cream is the fresh glow and matte finish it gives my face. A real pleasure to use every morning, I just wish it would also contain an SPF to make it an even more complete product.

L'Oréal The Balm ($8.95 CND)
This balm is somewhere between a lipgloss and a lipstick. The selection of colors is beautiful but quite on the sheer side. The texture is surprisingly rich and hydrating, it goes on smoothly, it contains an SPF 15 and provides a 2-hour staying power. I find the packaging rather elegant for a drugstore brand and I am very fond of the "Nourishing Nude" and the "Plush Plum" shades.

MAC Peaches Powder Blush ($24.00 CND)
With the color frenzy these days, I was eager to add a tad of tangerine to my make-up routine. This true peach sheertone blush has a silky texture and a matte finish. When applied lightly, it delivers a natural flush but it is easily buildable to achieve a bolder look. It's the perfect daytime blush for spring.
