Now that Spring is officially under way I am doing my annual Spring cleaning. I go through my makeup collecting and toss any old products and add new colors and products to transition my look to Spring. Here are a few of my new favorite items that have me ready for Spring.

This was my first experience with the Eclos line and I am really impressed. The Eclos anti-aging Daily HydraPrimer feels like a dream on my skin. Just a drop and I can cover my whole face and it feels so lightweight but still moisturizes my face. My skin feels and looks great when I am using this and I love that they included a SPF 30.

Hair:

Alterna Haircare is excited to introduce new additions to the Caviar Anti-Aging family! The line expanded to include four NEW caviar-infused beauty wonders that target extremely damaged hair .

Say hello to beautiful hair. My hair was none to happy when I decided to go red then back to blonde all mixed with the winter elements of being in the snow, sun and rain. After two weeks use my hair is feeling and looking great. The dryness has disappeared and I have little to no breakage when I brush. And overall the looks and feel of my hair is shinier and has a bounce to it. The product is a bit spendy but I need only a tiny bit to work through my hair so it will last quite a while.

I love this hair mask, one use and you can see dramatic results. I like to apply it then comb through and leave on my hair for about 25 minutes. Once I have rinsed it out my hair is so soft and bouncy and any dry ends are gone. The little silver protein beads feels so cool and once they pop and release the protein they just rinse right out with the mask treatment.
