Spring has finally begun! I don’t know about you guys but I have been desperately waiting for spring to start (especially after the winter weather in New York)! I have summed up five of my top picks for spring skincare. After winter, you want to look for products that can help you transition into spring temperatures. I tend to use a lot of masks during spring to get that glowy look on my skin! In no particular order, here are my picks!

1./ The Cleanser

In the winter I try to limit the use of harsh skin products to a minimum because my skin is already quite sensitive and dry with the cold weather. So any cleanser or make up remover I use, has to be a gentle one. Transitioning into spring, I like the Clinique Cleansing Balm. There is something about a balm that just feels luxurious on the skin. The balm melts into an oily substance when applied on a washed face. It is the perfect gentle make up remover and it leaves the skin feeling soft and smooth as well!

Spring Beauty Kiehl's Renewing Cream Manuga Honey

2./ The Cream

On your beauty vanity this spring, you must have the Kiehl’s Pure Vitality Renewing Cream. This cream has an instant hydration when you apply it on your skin. Texture-wise it feels like a soft butter but it absorbs into your skin like a water-based moisturizer. It smoothes the skin and gets you ready for your spring look! The cream is made with Manuka honey from New Zealand. Kiehl’s products usually aren’t scented but this product does have a subtle sweetness to it.

3./ The Peel

After one disastrous experience with a peeling product in the past, I have always been kind of reserved about peels. But I decided to try the Lancôme Visionnaire Crescendo after reading raving reviews. The peel is an over-night face peel that exfoliates the skin (while you’re asleep, so imagine how much time you’re saving) and it’s supposed to be used in two cycles, using the product from the two opposite ends for two weeks. After the first day, your skin feels super smooth! And as you continue the regimen, your skin starts to smooth out pores and harsh definitions on your face. And it gives you a more even complexion. I bought my friend one for her birthday – she keeps joking I bought her a new skin!

Spring Skincare Glamglow Dreamduo

4./ The Night Cream

I fell in love with Glamglow last year when I first started using their masks back in September. The dream duo has been my companion this winter but I think it will be perfect for spring as well. The Glamglow Dreamduo Overnight Treatment is a double product consisting of a serum (in a pearly color) and a seal (thicker moisturizer). I recommend applying the Dreamduo at the end, after you’ve used your cleansers, toners and peels. It moisturizes and makes your skin feel plump and rosy the next morning!

5./ The Face Wash

With face wash, I like to go back and forth, switching between different products. On days I am using a soft cleanser, I will use a stronger face wash – and vice versa. This is my first time trying out the brand Perricone MD so I didn’t know what to expect. The face wash if a cleansing foam so it does feel a bit softer than my regular face wash products. But it’s perfect because I’m using more peels, masks and renewing formulas in the spring, so you want to balance that out with softer products! It cleanses thoroughly without drying out the skin.
