With a change of season, comes a change in my beauty routine. Long gone are the cold winter nights, cloudy days and lack of sunlight which brought dry and dull skin. New obstacles arise, with hotter days and more time spent outside. Thankfully I am fully prepared this year. My recent trip to Japan helped a lot, as it meant I was able to stock up on some old favourites, as well as some new products I researched before/during my visit. That said, in 2019 I’ve continued to keep my beauty routine pretty varied in terms of origins & brands – with items coming from UK, Japan, Korea and France (amongst others).
I’ll be spending this spring focusing on the basics; healthy skin and hair, fresh scents and a fully prepped base with minimal make-up. So without further ado, here are my spring beauty essentials for 2019.
My Spring Beauty Essentials
- La Créme Main* by Chanel
- Lip Cream by DHC
- Star Magnolia Cologne by Jo Malone
- Soft Clay Rubber Mask by LIXIRSKIN
- Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence by COSRX
- Sound Sleep Cocoon* by Dermalogica
- Redness Relief Essence* by Dermalogica
- Biore UV Aqua Rich Watery Essence SPF 50+ PA++++ (sunscreen)
- Volumising Tonic (for hair) by Aveda
- Heel Chemistry by Deciem
I’ve always been an advocate for taking care of your skin first, and I think that’s pretty apparent with this list, as you can see I haven’t added any new make-up products to my cupboard. But I think the most obvious change from my winter beauty products, is the addition of lighter creams and stronger SPFs. It may not be groundbreaking, but it is practical, and it works.
