Review: L’Oreal Visible Lift Blur Foundation #VLBlurfection

Ok I will admit I’m a foundation snob. I have always felt with foundation you get what you pay for and if you go cheap its going to wreck your skin or simply not work. So when I was asked to review the new L’Oréal Paris Visible Lift Blur Foundation I might have had some preconceived notions about how it would work.

After my first use I realized I was very wrong thinking you had to break the bank to get a great foundation. The word Blur might make you think heavy, silicone like foundations but this is a very lightweight foundation. It felt incredibly light on my skin and left my skin feeling hydrated and smooth.  I love how it made my pores nearly disappear and evened out my skin tone. Just a pea sized amount it enough to perfect my skin and I finish with a setting powder. A great foundation and under $15, I can’t wait to check out more from the L’Oréal Paris Blur line!

Jergens Natural Glow: My Spring Beauty Routine, Plus $500 Giveaway!

Jergens Natural Glow and She Speaks wanted to know how I change things up for my Spring Beauty Routine. I am a big believer in changing products with the season, what works in the cold of winter is not necessarily the best thing for long, warm Spring days.

One of the big changes is my mo moisturizer in cold, windy winter my skin needs extra protection from a heavier day cream. But as Spring arrives its far too heavy and can lead to breakouts and too much shine. I start using light moisturizers made for the warmer months and I really love tinted versions with SPF saves a ton of time and add a bit of gloss and mascara and I am done.

I also add highlights in the Spring to brighten up my look, and I start using color protection shampoo and conditioners to protect my new color. Add a weekly face and hair mask and I can keep my sensitive, combo skin from freaking out during the rapid weather changes of Spring in the Pacific NW.

Nothing says Spring like some fun new tops or dresses. I like to find a few fun, affordable sundresses that I can dress up with heels and accessories or throw over a swimsuit with sandals for a day by the pool. Pedicures are a must this time of year with toes that are on display in  heels, wedges  and sandals I make sure I take the time take care of my feet and keep my toes painted a bright pink or coral for Spring.

 My Spring beauty is definitely about saving time and keeping things light and easy! Do you change your routine up for Spring? What is one of the first things you purchase to get ready for the warmer weather?

Jergens makes it easier than ever to glow with the NEW Natural Glow Moisturizers that provides great color, year-round, without the sunless tanner odor.
