Top 5 Beauty Picks This Spring

1. Dior Addict Lip Glow

Ladies, if you have been scouring for a lip product that hydrates your lips and gives color, you’re definitely looking at the right place. Being a fickle person, this is probably one of the few lip products that I have used till the end of the stick, and repurchased! While most lip balms hydrate your lips, it does not give color and you end up taking that extra step to apply your favorite lipstick. On the other hand, I have never been a fan of most lip gloss as they tend to give that I-just-ate-fried-chicken-and-I-forgot-to-wipe-my-mouth oily look.

The Dior Addict Lip Glow is the perfect balance between a lip balm and a lip gloss. It not only hydrates your lips and provides additional SPF benefits, it also adds a slight color to your lips. What is cool about the Dior Addict Lip Glow is that it creates a special shade that varies from person to person as it reacts with the chemistry of your lips. This results in a subtle color that enhances your natural lip color, all while moisturizing and protecting your lips! This must-have product is definitely perfect for everyday use, or for that special dinner date when you’re going for a natural make up look.

2. Morrocan Oil

Have you wondered how many Hollywood actresses get their long, silky hair? We’ll let you in on the secret: Moroccan Oil Hair Treatment. From Katy Perry to Rachel Bilson, Hollywood celebrities have been using this hair treatment to help create that long sleek hairdo. Named one of the top hair products by InStyle magazine, this argan oil-infused hair treatment will tame any frizzy mane into soft sleek head-turning hair.

The Moroccan Oil is light and does not wear your hair down with the greasiness that some hair treatments do. It also has a scent that is similar to the classic white floral hand lotion, with a tint of muskiness that makes you want to smell your hair all day! All you need is a dime-sized amount, rub it to your freshly washed hair paying special attention the ends and voila! you’ll be on your way to shampoo commercial-worthy hair.


​3. Twistband

For us ladies with long hair, hair ties are a necessity in our handbags, on our desks, our wrists,  etc. Those little hair ties are used on a hot day, before meals or just when we feel like pulling our hair back for various reasons. However, traditional hair ties does not solve our #longhairproblems. Hair ties cause those unsightly dents in our hair when we take it off, or they are a pain in the head as they tug on our scalp. So what do us girls with #longhairproblems do? Either tie up our hair for the whole day, or suck it up and leave our hair down on a hot, sweltering day. Argh! Well ladies, Twistband might just be our savior! Made of an elastic fabric material, Twistbands let us be fickle and decide when we want to tie up our hair without those ugly dents. It comes in a variety of styles and patterns to suit everyone from toddlers to busy moms. When you feel like wearing your hair down, twistbands look oh-so-chic on your wrists too! No more digging into your handbag looking for a hair tie. #longhairproblems? Solved!

4. Oscar Blandi Pronto Invisible Volumizing Dry Shampoo Spray

Dry shampoo is for busy girls on the go. I am sure all of us have experienced mornings when we have just no time to shampoo and style our hair, yet our hair is in such a mess. Dry shampoo instantly cleanses hair without water in a matter of minutes, and adds a volumizing boost to your limp hair. It’s filled with ingredients such as starch help absorb oil in your hair and vitamins to protect your hair. Of course, I would never recommend getting rid of your regular shampoo.

I particularly like the Oscar Blandi Pronto Invisible Volumizing Dry Shampoo as unlike most of its competitors, it does not like leave any residue when sprayed and instantly does what it says! After shaking well, spray product on your scalp and hair, focusing on the roots. Use your hand to shake out the excess product, and style as per usual. You will have hair that looks and feels like its freshly shampooed, all within a matter of minutes (or even seconds)!


5. Laneige Water Sleeping Pack_EX

Korean beauty products seem to be all the rage nowadays and what’s a beauty review without a Korean beauty product? For all you Korean drama and k-pop fans, I am sure you’ve always wondered how those Korean actresses achieve their flawless complexion. Could be the air they breathe? Or the water they drink?

The Laneige Water Sleeping Pack_EX has graced Elle’s Beauty IT List and was also named one of the Best Beauty Buys from Women’s Weekly. En route to South Korea recently, it was also featured in the inflight shopping catalogue. An article even claimed many hospital interns swear by this product. With that being said, I headed straight to the first Laneige beauty counter I saw in Seoul and made the purchase.

This product is great! It’s filled with a plethora of skin-purifying ingredients that moisturizes and improves your skin texture during nighttime, when your skin usually regenerates. Lather on an appropriate amount on your face and feel it being absorbed as you sleep comfortably for the night. Rinse it off the next morning and feel a baby-like suppleness on your skin.
