Top 3 Beauty Essentials For Spring

Creating a Fashion Forward Style persona revolves around creating a flawless wardrobe as well as stocking your cabinet with the right combination of fashion forward beauty products that will help complete your look.

Moisturizer

Taking care of your skin is an essential part of completing your look for spring. The winter months are hard on your skin and can drain them of the needed moisture to maintain a youthful appearance. Choose a quality moisturizer that will help replace all the moisture lost during the dry winter conditions. As you select a moisturizer look for one that will go on without feeling greasy or interfere with your fragrance selection. Also, consider the convenience factor when choosing a moisturizer. You want one that will dispense well and will go on with ease. If the bottle is too difficult to get the moisturizer out of or there is too much left in the bottle then you should another moisturizer.  I recently received a sample of Spray and Go by Vaseline from Influenster and it is actually the best moisturizer that I have tried in a long time. It meets all the criteria and dries quickly.
