Welcome to the month of March, beautiful. I am so excited to step into the fresh energy of Spring! I love Spring not only because of the gorgeous weather we get here in Arizona, but also because it symbolizes renewal and new beginnings. It’s truly a time of rejuvenation and coming back into ourselves, stepping out and stepping up in new ways. I’ve been feeling very inspired lately, and I’m sure it’s a combination of many things, but the change of seasons does have a profound impact on us which is why I wanted to share this elevated energy with you all! March is the perfect time to revitalize our vanities and do some mini (or major) beauty upgrades to align with this new energy.
I’m excited to announce that the infamous Beautology Cryo Toning Tools are back in stock! After their launch here at Citrine, they literally flew off the shelves and we have finally been able to restock! These tools give you that perfect morning rehab. They are specifically designed to stimulate the lymphatic system to relieve puffiness and help contour, tone and lift. The cold therapy works to stimulate microcirculation in the skin, increase collagen production and help with vascular constriction, which shrinks the pores and gives the appearance of a glass-like complexion. The cold temperature is going to reduce inflammation and repair the skin at a cellular level. I love to use these as a part of my skin prep for a photoshoot, date night or any special occasion.
This has been a key piece to my new, everyday, no makeup-makeup routine, for those days when I just want to get out the door while still looking polished and fresh. It’s that ideal combination of a pigmented-coverage product (a sheer to light wash of coverage) and nourishing skincare ingredients, so you’re getting makeup and skincare benefits all infused in one. It gives an all-over tint, blurs imperfections and keeps my skin feeling supple. I personally have been using the Kosas Glow I.V. as a base and layering this on top for that extra glowy look.
For those of you who used May Lindstrom’s Honey Mud, this product is the perfect swap. Honey is one of those incredible ingredients that touts so many benefits. It’s both antibacterial and antifungal, a lush hydrator and just all around magical. Packed with raw Hawaiian honey, this product infuses your skin with sweet moisture, all while gently exfoliating. Leahlani knows how to get tropical & fresh with their ingredients and Honey Love does not disappoint. It’s full of maqui berry, an antioxidant-rich superfood, hibiscus for collagen production, and clays to stimulate circulation & detoxify. I love this for anyone struggling with breakouts or dullness, it really refines and polishes the skin. It actually tastes good too!
What I love about the new complexion products that have been coming out, is that they are very multipurpose and focused on not only perfecting the skin tone and adding coverage, but also infusing the skin with a beautiful dose of ingredients that nourish and hydrate for that total skincare-meets-makeup situation. This glow-enhancing product from Kosas is formulated with antioxidants for protection, vitamin D to prevent water loss and strengthen the skin barrier, and glutathione (another antioxidant) that helps to increase cellular turnover and stimulate collagen.
My go-to complexion lately has been doing a quick mask and skincare prep (see my morning skincare ritual here) before going in with the Glow I.V., followed up with a layer of the Jane HydroPure Tinted Serum. It gives a beautiful finish for when I want to run errands or take my daughter, Willow, to the park. Easy, glowy and feels super nourishing.
I use the shade Spark, which is a light champagne color, that gives me a warm glow on my fair complexion. If you need a suggestion on what shade would be best for you, don’t hesitate to send us a DM or register for one of our free, 15 minute consultations here.
This hydrating and lifting product feels like more than a mask to me… it acts as both a treatment and serum. This is my go-to product that I reach for when I’m looking to really plump & amplify hydration in my skin. I really love to use this on days when I know I have a photoshoot to just really give my skin a boost. Botanical hyaluronic acid gives the skin a true plumping effect and helps to fill in fine lines. It’s super rich, fresh & has a luxurious silky texture. It also smells divine with jasmine and iris. I recommend this to anyone looking to deeply hydrate and get that supple feeling back into their skin.
