Spring Beauty Cleaning
Ah, spring. The season of renewal, freshness and rejuvenation. More exciting than cleaning out the attic, we’ve rounded up our favourite super cleansing beauty products to give ourselves a little spring cleaning and emerge fresh as a daisy (or a camellia, which blooms in spring and happens to be both mine and Ms. Coco Chanel’s favourite flower alike).
Arm & Hammer Truly Radiant Manual Toothbrush & Truly Radiant Rejuvenating Toothpaste
Start with your mouth! Gleaming, white teeth are the picture of health, and they are easily achieved by pairing Arm & Hammer’s Truly Radiant Manual Toothbrush with their Truly Radiant Rejuvenating Toothpaste. Not only does the toothpaste boast an improved taste and has a supremely smooth, never grainy texture, it visibly whitens in less than a week. Used with the Truly Radiant Manual Toothbrush, which is the only manual toothbrush of its kind to feature a rotating head, you’ll get an extra deep clean and sparkling pearly whites without the bulk of an electronic toothbrush.
Josie Maran Argan Exfoliating Cleansing Powder
Scrub away winter dullness and face spring with a supremely cleansed, renewed complexion. An effective, non-irritating and glow-inducing deep clean, Josie Maran has graciously graced our faces with our new favourite exfoliator in a genius powder formula. When poured into wet palms, this magic potion turns into a luxuriously creamy paste that can be used to polish skin and lips. Created with crushed Argan shells and rice powder, this scrub is gentle yet super effective and feels absolutely amazing to use. Throw in the fact it packs a potent natural punch of antioxidants and skin soothing and clearing ingredients and we’re thrilled to say this will be a year-round must have.
Clarisonic Aria & Velvet Body Brush
When it comes to cleansing brushes, the Clarisonic still reigns supreme. The most advanced of the bunch, the Aria, boasts a customizable 3 speed cleansing experience for polished, perfect skin. It removes six times more makeup and sweeps away twice as much dirt and oil than manually cleaning, which results in gorgeously smooth texture and diminished pores. Gently buffing away flaky, dead skin, the Clarisonic Aria also creates the perfect canvas for better absorption of moisturizer and skincare products, leaving skin plump and radiant. The results are as amazing as the brush feels when buffing skin, making your usual routine feel like a spa-like experience.
This little wonder brush doesn’t stop at your face: in fact, there are a few varieties of brushes for the body. Supremely soft bristles smooth skin thanks to their ultra long, tapered filaments. Flexible and extra cushy, the Luxe Body Brush Head creates a beautiful foaming lather for an ultra clean, soft result.
Fresh Umbrian Clay Purifying Treatment Bar
The only thing that comes from Italy’s region of Umbria that I love more than the lush, gorgeously delicious wine is Fresh’s Umbrian Clay Purifying Treatment Bar. When skin on the face or body needs a truly deep cleaning without abrasive beads or a 20 minute mask, this is the bar I reach for time and time again. Simply wet your face and/or body and the bar, and apply directly to skin. The bar exfoliates skin on contact and creates a mask that can be rinsed off immediately or left on for five minutes. The unique formula boasts a super high mineral content that neutralizes acidity on the skin,which purifies, detoxifies and clarifies the complexion. After rinsing, skin is smooth, clear and clean.
Inspired Soap Works Limited Lemon Loofah Bar
Is there anything more pedicure appropriate than a good ol’ scrub and a fresh citrus scent? We think not. Combining the best of both, this slice of soap boasts a deliciously fresh and uplifting Italian Lemon essential oil-spiked base, surrounding a scrub-happy loofah. Simply wet the bar and go to town on heels, toes and pads for a smoothing massage-like cleansing.
Alterna Exfoliating Scalp Facial
Really give your head a good, deep spring cleaning (and weekly after that) by indulging in Alterna’s Exfoliating Scalp Facial treatment to exfoliate and cleanse away product buildup. First of all, this stuff feels absolutely incredible and truly soothes, cleanses and moisturized for the healthiest scalp possible. The formula features tiny, exfoliating microbeads that are distributed with a unique brush-like applicator. Massaged into small sections in a circular motion, this is the most relaxing and enjoyable way to rebalance and really cleanse your scalp for a completely comfortable result.
Did you know you can have combination hair, just like skin? When your scalp is oily and your lengths are dry, a highly specialized formula is just what the doctor ordered. Please both scalp and hair with Kérastase PARIS’ perfectly balanced and specifically formulated Spécifique Bain Divalent. Designed to cleanse and balance oily scalps (or anyone who needs a really good cleaning from product buildup) while selectively nourishing sensitized ends, this is one of the most clever and effective beauty products we’ve ever had the pleasure of experiencing, leaving us feeling spring clean and nourished!
