Budget Beauty: Nivea Touch of Renewal

As spring blooms it's important to start getting your skin warm weather ready.  I've officially pulled out all my sundresses and tucked away my heavy winter sweaters, so now it's time to get my skin in gear.

Nivea Touch of Renewal

Nivea's Touch of Renewal Lathering Body Scrub is the perfect drugstore buy to scrub and cleanse away that winter skin and let your summer skin shine.  You can even use it as part of your daily shower routine.

The thing I love about this product the most is how incredibly gentle it is- I use it mainly on the shoulders and chest area because of it's fine exfoliation and a main ingredient is Vitamin E, which is great for anti-aging and smoothing the skin.  Sometimes we forget how important it is to have a chest/ neck beauty regimen, that part of the body shows aging quickly!!

As far as scent goes, it's a very clean and light scent...nothing overpowering or too fragrance-y.

Body scrubs can be expensive, but Nivea Touch of Renewal does an amazing job at the perfect price point of about $6!

Anthropologie Home Mini-Haul

When I was home for Easter weekend I had the pleasure of going shopping with my Mom, which of course meant stopping by our local Anthropologie- it's just the best store on this planet.  

While I loveeee the clothing in Anthro, my main addiction is the kitchen/ dining section.  I've been growing an amazing collection of pieces (hehe, thanks Mom!) and I was able to add some more, from the sale section (!!!), while home that weekend.

Not sure what's still available in store and/or online, but it's worth checking out! 

First, I needed a new spoon rest because my dog jumped up on the stove and broke the super cute Pier 1 spoon rest I had...he's so dangerous sometimes.  This Jardin Des Plantes ($8) one caught my eye- I love the white and blue, so French.

I love all stemware, I've started a pretty decent Anthro collection, so these gorgeous minty-green Cumulus Collection Champagne Flutes ($14) made their way into my basket.  They're just so summery looking and pretty!! 

Side plates are fun, right?  When I have people over I always find myself needing pretty dishes to display appetizers on.  The Attingham Side Plate ($14) is simple and delivers a nice pop of color to the table.

Lastly, I purchased the Flowerpatch Measuring Cup ($24) for a friend.  Not only is it useful since it's, well, a measuring cup, but it's also a nice piece to display.  Even if you don't want to use it as a measuring cup it'd be great as a small vase. 

I am an admitted #AnthroAddict, and I don't care who knows.

Thursday's Fab Five

Thursday's Fab Five

Okay so I'm a new ipsy member, this is only my third Glam Bag.  I've been loving the products, and even have an April one already featured in this Fab Five.  However, this month the Boho Chic makeup bag in which the products came in caught my eye the most.  I think it's perfectly summery, I love the colors!  If you're interested in trying ipsy sign up here!  

I'm obsessed with the name of this polish, and wish it was really happening every time I look down at my nails.  This is from my April ipsy Glam Bag!  It reminds me of some Essie colors I have, but of course when I line them up next to one another it looks completely different.  I'm in total summer mode, so this color was right up my ally for this week.

This is a product from my January Birchbox- I used it each day during spring break as my cleanser while I was in Mexico!  I typically use both a makeup remover and a cleanser, but I did not want to pack much/ knew I wouldn't be wearing a ton of makeup on the beach.  Key West Aloe did the job just fine, never irritated my sun kissed skin, and wasn't drying in the least bit.  It was the perfect cleanser to use while in the sun so much, the aloe was calming, and overall I felt super fresh after using it!

My bestie got me these almost too fitting cocktail napkins for Christmas- they say, "Ta-da! Now let's have a cocktail!"  They're hilarious and extremely accurate for my life.  As I see their quantity beginning to dwindle on my coffee table I knew I had to add them into my favorites for this week.  I love to display cocktail napkins, it's decorative for my coffee table, and if it's a funny napkin, it's obviously just that much better.

You should always have a nail board in your bag, you never know what crazy things can happen in this world, causing a nail to break.  So, since it's clearly a necessity, you might as well make it a super pretty nail file!

Ole Henriksen Perfect Truth CC Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 30

I'm a huge Ole Henriksen fan, my obsession with their The Clean Truth Cleansing Cloths is unreal.  I'm so jealous of Sephora because their employee's use a massive ridiculously jumbo pack of them at the Sephora Beauty Studio, but it's not for sale. ugh.

Anyway, I'm equally obsessed with the Ole Henriksen Perfect Truth CC Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 30.

Ole Henriksen Perfect Truth CC Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 30

CC Creams are the best, and I have a few I rotate in and out of my morning routine.  It's so easy to throw it on before work- it gives me minimum coverage which I want, but does an excellent job at covering my redness, which is a constant battle.

I love the Ole Henrikson Perfect Truth CC Cream because it's so incredibly lightweight, and it smells amazing...just like all of the other Truth line products.  My skin looks bright, even, and dewy after I apply it, and it pretty much stays put during the day.  It's also perfect for layering without looking clumpy or too dark.

This CC Cream also has a real melting feel to it, which I love because it blends so well. Any little imperfections I have are covered, and I really don't need to use much concealer at all, unless of course I've been up all night watching Entourage/ planning lessons...no big deal.

I do use a setting powder (Mac Prep + Prime) on certain parts of my face after just to make sure I stay matte in those areas since I have such a long and mostly crazy day.

I highly recommend this and all Ole Henriksen Perfect Truth products, check them out next time you're in Sephora!
