Spring Forward | The Most Forward Thinking Beauty Products for Spring
Spring is all about new beginnings and this makes it an exciting time to revamp our beauty routines! Researched by yours truly, I have sourced the most luxurious and innovative beauty products that are moving the industry forward and amping up our Spring beauty routines.
As a Perfume Expert, there’s no better place to start than with choosing a new perfume! Changing your scent is a great way to set the mood for the upcoming season and who better to help us create a perfectly scented ambiance than famed perfumer & designer Clive Christian. Launching the Private Collection of Luxury Perfumes for Him & Her Clive Christian takes scent to a whole new level!
Be prepared for a magical scent journey!
With the belief that making perfume is an art, Clive Christian uses the highest quality, and sometimes RARE, ingredients to create fragrances that transcend time and space. The Private Collection stimulates the olfactory system and memory, using scent as a way of transporting the wearer to a different time or place.
Each of the 5 fragrances for women and 5 for men, spell out the name C.L.I.V.E and represent a specific place or memory that’s special to the perfumer. For example, the fragrance “C” evokes the wild beauty of the Scottish landscape where Clive was born; or “V” which is inspired by his eldest daughter.
Once we’ve set the tone for the new season, it’s time to take care of some “house cleaning”.
Time to revamp your Spring clean with Jane Iredale’s innovative Magic Mitt!
Made from a new generation micro-fibers thinner than a human hair, these tiny fibres when combined with water are able to break the surface tension of the oils that bond makeup to the skin.
All you need is water to remove ALL of your makeup, even mascara and NO HARSH CLEANSERS NEEDED!
Now that’s forward thinking beauty!
Hair Care has also had a bit of a revolution by the cult favourite brand Living Proof. They are known for combining leading edge science with our practical needs to create hair care products that are “proven” to work!
Take their Living Proff Full Thickening Cream which is powered by their patented Thickening Molecule (PBAE), which creates thickening dots between hair strands so it feels like you have thicker hair. And it lasts 5x longer than regular thickening products on the market.
Who said science was boring?!
Another brand that focuses on the science behind their products is Perricone MD.
“Science is the currency of ideas at Perricone MD. All our ideas start with a scientific hypothesis about how we can improve the health and beauty of the skin.”
If you haven’t heard of their No Foundation Foundation, then now’s a good time as this Spring in particular we are seeing a trend towards “clean beauty” and more natural fresh looks.
Perricone MD’s No Foundation Foundation is a ”forward thinking” idea on how makeup and skincare can come together in one. An anti-aging serum harnessing the power of ALPHA LIPOIC ACID and Vitamin C esters, to minimize the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and enlarged pores over time. Plus it gives you a natural colour with a blurring effect on imperfections.
Who can argue with makeup that ACTUALLY makes your skin better every time you wear it?!
Now if Dr. Brandt’s MAGNETIGHT Age-Defier Mask DOES’NT sound like skincare of the future then I don’t know what would!
“Comprised of micro-magnetic particles that act as a force field to repel signs of aging”
Iron magnetic particles draw out toxins. Lavender soothes and Black tourmaline, a powerful mystic stone known as one of nature’s most energizing minerals, neutralizes negative energy and boost positivity.
After about 10min you sweep the provided magnet over your skin, literally attracting the materials to it and removing the mask from the face rendering skin radiant!
From your face to the rest of your body, nothing makes our body more radiant than a having a bit of a glow! As the temperatures start rising so will the amount of hours of sunlight. So why not take advantage of every ray you can with a whole new outlook on sun protection by Institute Esthederm.
Would it surprise you if I said that you can have all the sun protection you need without an SPF?
Well, it’s true! Enter the forward thinking Institute Esthederm’s Adaptasun Body Lotion
Institute Esthederm creates a luxury suncare line that believes in the power and beneficial effects of the sun while STILL protecting your skin from the harmful rays! Basically, they’ve managed to develop a product that lets all the GOOD STUFF IN and keeps all the BAD STUFF OUT!
Their patented Global Cellular Protection technology, optimizes cell protection and prevents photo-ageing and cellular damage, while also activating the skin’s natural tanning process!
Now, no list on innovation would be complete without a beauty gadget and it was hard to pick just one!
Science and beauty have totally come together over the past few years to bring us everything from skin clearing lightwaves to ultra sonic hairdryers, but none are more future forward than Nuface’s NuBODY Skin Toning device.
The 1st FDA-cleared at-home micro-current body toning device that visibly helps tone skin, firm skin, and smooth away the look of dimples. Perfect timing to get our body bikini ready for Summer.
Originally, micro-current technology was used in medical arenas for treating patients recovering from injury or stroke where their facial muscles were drooping or weakened. But now, this same technology is available to the mass market and can be used to “exercise” your muscles to achieve a more toned appearance.
Whether it’s out-of-the-box ingredients, forward thinking applications, or scientific tools; the future of beauty looks bright!
So Spring forward with the rest of us and jump on the bandwagon and try one of these forward thinking products.
