Spring Beauty Favorites


There’s something about spring that always makes me want to start fresh. I got a new haircut, have added in some awesome new clothing pieces, and lastly, I had to change up my beauty routine by trying out a few new products. Here are some of my favorite products I’ve used this season!

Vanity Planet Spin Brush, ℅ — I’m pretty obsessed with this spin brush. It comes with three different brush heads, one for cleansing, one for exfoliating and a pumice stone. Yes ladies, you can use this to cleanse, exfoliate and remove dead skin. I noticed that my skin became a little clearer within a week. This is a super powerful tool that I’ve made a part of my regular beauty routine. Want to try out this spin brush for yourself? Use the code “ATSPIN” for a whopping 70% discount! 

Sole Serum, ℅ — Ok, so this isn’t exactly a “beauty” product, but it’s something I cannot get enough of at the moment. I have a love/hate relationship with heels. I love the way they look, but I can’t stand being in most of the heels I own for more than a couple of hours. This product is a complete godsend. It actually makes being in heels bearable and its perfect for all of the weddings, graduations and other dressy events I’ll be attending this season. Do yourself a favor and save your feet by picking up a bottle!


Living Proof Blowout Styling Finishing Spray, ℅ — I have to let you in on a little secret: I’ve still never gotten a blowout. However, I love using this product to touch up my hair the day after I curl it to keep my waves in place. This product is also a great heat protectant and conditions my hair pretty well. Exactly what the doc ordered for my dry locks!

Mischo Beauty Lacquer of Love, ℅ — I can’t resist a good nail polish, but I love that this company is D.C. based and 100% of the proceeds from this particular shade will benefit the Washington, DC Women’s Business Center — an organization that empowers women. It’s always rewarding to support a small business that gives back to the community!

Beauty For Real, bronzer, lip cream, aerie beauty

Beauty For Real Dual Compact Cheek Highlighter/Bronzer and Lip Cream, ℅ — I have to admit, I’m not super adventurous when it comes to the world of makeup. I go to the MAC Counter about 4 times a year and just do a massive haul. However, when Beauty For Real reached out to me to try some of their products, I was definitely intrigued! Beauty For Real has also partnered with Aerie to create their first beauty line.

Two things I love to rock during the spring and summer? A good bronzer and a lip color with a punch. I adore the lip cream; it is incredibly smooth and leaves my lips very soft. It’s also just as long lasting as the department store makeup brands I’ve grown accustom to. I see myself using this bronzer daily this summer as well; it adds just the right amount of shimmer. Want to try some of these products for yourself? Use the code “ALICIA15” for 15% off your purchase!

    I love trying new products too. I’ve never heard of sole serum but I’m obsessed with face serums so maybe I’d like it! (:

  9. I have been wondering about Living Proof products! My hair is dry so I try not to wash more than necessary and anything that’ll extend a blowout is welcome in my book…

    I’ll have to try out Sole Serum. I never wear heels due to my feet always killing me after wearing them even for a short period of time.

    I’ve never heard of sole serum but anything that’ll help me wear heels comfortably for longer than a couple of hours is worth trying!
