What are some of the best beauty products to have this spring summer 2015? There are some fabulous new beauty products out this spring summer 2015 that you’ll be overwhelmed with choices. I’ve narrowed it down for you!
Spring Summer 2015 Beauty Products to Have
I have been using Dermalogica skin smoothing cream for a while, thanks to my make-up artist and skin care specialist sister-in-law. It’s a wonderful, medium-weight moisturizer that helps balance combination/dry skin. I have dry, sensitive skin in the winter but do suffer from breakouts in the t-zone. It may be a little too heavy for my skin during the summer, so I’ll switch to the Antioxidant Hydramist, another favourite.
The skin soothing cream has lecithin and aloe gel which moisturize, extracts of mallow, Cucumber and Arnica which soothe and hydrate the skin and antioxidant Grape Seed Extract plus vitamins C and E which help shield skin from environmental assaults. With all of these wonderful ingredients, there are no artificial fragrances and colours.
The Dermalogica Multivitamin power serum is an age-fighting serum containing micro encapsulated vitamins A, C and E to help increase skin recovery, decrease fine lines and age spots while defending against skin aging. Boost elasticity levels with a skin-strengthening protein peptide that overrides biochemical triggers that lead to skin aging.
If you’re looking for a therapeutic balm for your lips, the Climate Control Lip Treatment is it! It helps damaged skin recover from the elements and provides a barrier from weather extremeties. It glides on smoothly and keeps your lips moist for hours. Find the full line at Dermalogica.ca.
Elizabeth Arden Sunkissed Pearls Line
Who wouldn’t want a sunkissed look, especially with the weather we have… take me to the tropics! This limited edition Sunkissed Pearls line by Elizabeth Arden is beautifully packaged for one… and the colours are beautiful.
The Sunkissed Pearls Lip Gloss Trio ($29.00) comes in three mouth-watering shades and give lips long-wearing, beautiful colour and shine. In pink, coral, and berry hues, these glosses finish any summer beauty look while softening and conditioning the lips to deliver a fuller looking pout.
They have mango and shea butters, which are natural emollients that help lock in moisture to protect and soothe lips, and Maxi-Lip which helps support natural collagen for plumper, fuller looking lips.
The Pearls Bronzer and Highlighter ($48.00) bronzer and highlighter are a perfect bronzing and highlighting duo in golden neutrals and soft pink hues. The compact includes two bronzing shades and one highlighting shade which are formulated with skin perfecting ingredients to protect and illuminate skin. Sunkissed Pearls Bronzer and Highlighter is packaged in a pearl white compact with a window and includes a metallic silver half-moon brush for easy application.
The makeup contains vitamin E and argan oil, helping skin feel soft and moisturized – not dried out The microlight minerals act as optical diffusers that work to scatter light and soften the look of fine lines and wrinkles. It comes in a Warm Pearl (Light/Medium) shade. You can use the bronzer and highlighter together for a bronzed look, or separately – the darker shade to contour and the lighter shade to enhance, and the shimmer as a highlighter. So pretty!

Wella Professionals Elements Line
Wella Professionals Elements has introduced their first “free-of” hair care system free of sulfates, parabens and artificial colourants. The line includes four luxurious products, namely a Renewing Shampoo, Daily Renewing Conditioner, Reconstructing Mask and Leave In Conditioning Spray.
The line smells wonderful – the fragrance has top notes of green basil, green basil, water lily, star fruit and mandarin. The shampoo doesn’t lather because it’s sulfate-free but that’s alright, it cleans and rinses well. The reconstructing mask moisturizes your hair, especially if you suffer from dry ends. I love the Leave In Conditioning Spray which is helpful on days you don’t wash your hair, because let’s face it, I don’t wash mine every day! It gives you hair a lift on the in-between days.
Wella Professionals Elements is now available in professional salons across North America. Products can be purchased at professional salons across North America. For more information, visit Wella.com.
Nioxin Diamax Advanced Thickeing Xtrafusion Treatment
I’ve heard a lot about Nioxin as it’s the #1 stylist choice for thin-looking hair. If you have thin or limp hair, this will definitely make your hair feel and look smoother and fuller. The HTX formula has 25% more concentration of the key ingredients that help to thicken and strengthen your hair, without it feeling sticky. I need to see how well my hair fares in heat and humid conditions as it’s supposed to help compared to other treatments!
The three key ingredients in the HTX formula are niacinamide, panthenol and caffeine. The intensive leave-in treatment boosts hair diameter, coating each strand to visibly thicken existing hair with a combination of three key ingredients to make a noticeable difference in fullness immediately.

Klorane Gentle Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk
And for those days you don’t have time wash their hair every day? Klorane Gentle Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk is an easy-to-use dry shampoo which can be sprayed onto your hair and brushed out to remove impurities and restore volume. In two minutes, your hair is refreshed and revitalized.
Hair begins to look dull, lifeless, and in need of a wash when there is too much oil in your hair – hair follicles produce oil to protect and lubricate the hair But too much oil weighs the hair down. When you spray Klorane Gentle Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk on your hair, the powder absorbs excess oil. As you brush it out it removes the oil, leaving hair clean and refreshed – which is great in between washes.
This non-colouring dry shampoo formula is especially designed for darker hair. If applied correctly, Klorane leaves no residue and can be used on all hair types and shades.
