spring beauty picks at Ulta.

Full disclosure: I received complimentary samples of Cristophe Hair Care hair products to review. This is a PR collaboration, but all opinions and product picks are my own. Thank you for supporting the brands that support Cornflake Dreams.

Spring starts tomorrow (YAH!) -- and it's a great time to refresh your beauty products. I typically use Bumble and Bumble hair products but sometimes I like to switch it up and try something new. Since this winter has been brutal on my skin and hair I decided to try a new hydrating line of hair products. Ulta introduced me to Cristophe professional hair products (which now sell in stores) and they sent me a few samples to try. I tried the hydrating shampoo and conditioner and I loved it! It made my hair soft and shiny and it felt more hydrated (bonus: it's also 1/2 the price of my normal products). I also tried the volumizing spray tonic which I liked but the pump stuck a little bit making it somewhat difficult to use. I also love Hempz original herbal body moisturizer for dry skin. I started using this in high school and ten years later (eeks!) I still use it because it smells sooo good. Another good option for dry skin is the body shop almond hand & nail cream and I always have a Nivea lip balm in my purse. For Spring manis + pedis I love the Essie resort 4pc collectionOPI glitzerlan, Essie fashion playground (mint)   and OPI Italian love affair nail polishes.

What beauty products are you loving this Spring?

  1. Sadly, I am a creature of comfort and haven't tried any new products except for those for my new hair color (which I like so far), but I'm interested to try the Christophe line...might need to make a visit to Ulta this week.

  4. Essie is always my favorite go to polish. I love the John Freida dream curls for that beach wavy hair when the weather starts heating up and I ditch the hair dryer! xoxo

  5. I love beauty round-up posts! I haven't tried many new products lately, because I'm trying a short period of no-buys (wish me luck!).
    You said you always carry Nivea lip balm in your purse. Mee too, as we transition into warm weather I change the balm with gloss, but always carry one in my purse . Currently I use Nivea's Natural Volume Gloss – it has slightly pink colour and a bit of silky shimmer, but looks so natural on the lips. In my opinion the volume look comes from hydratation and appearance, because I don't feel any burning or tingling, like other lip plumpers have.
