New Spring Beauty

Did anyone else sing this post title to the tune of Bubba Sparxx's 'Ms. New Booty'? No? Just me? Fine! Regardless, I'm super excited about some new products (available at none other than the fabulous Meijer) that I'm adding to my beauty arsenal and can't wait to tell you about them!

Have I ever told you how much I hate waking up early for work each morning? When I'm too lazy to wash my face before work, this magic potion, AKA Garnier Micellar Water, gently wipes away dirt and oil prior to my makeup application - and it's ah-mazing! Bonus: it can even be used as a makeup remover!


Now onto the fun stuff! Spring is nearing and that means it's time for a light glow. If you're not like Jaime and have the luxury of going on multiple beach vacations in a short period of time (I'm not bitter at all!), Jergens Natural Glow gradual tanning lotion gives subtle color and also has firming benefits! Did you say firming? Yes, please! I also recommend using Jergens Color Primer (see in shower below) which is a wonderful-smelling body scrub that gets rid of dry skin and preps your skin for gradual and/or sunless tanning products.

Two amazing products that are new to me: Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer and Argan Wear Lip Oil. The bronzer has a creamy, lightweight feel and gives a beautiful sun-kissed glow while the lip oil feels amazing, it's shiny and moisturizing and has a bit of a plumping, tingle action. Love, love, love!


Now onto the hair. When Meijer let us in on a little secret about TRESemme's Beauty-full Volume Reverse System, I knew I wanted to give it a try! We've all used those conditioners that weigh our hair down and leave it looking greasy and lifeless. With this system, you use the conditioner FIRST to add moisture and then cleanse with the shampoo. How cool is that?!


They also have a variety of great products in this line, including a volume maximizer to put on before drying your hair, as well as an awesome hairspray and mousse. I gave it a try and well, you can see how amazing my hair looks below (insert winking emoji here). It had volume and was super smooth - I didn't even have to straighten it the next day!


Now get your booty to Meijer for some new beauty - look at me, tying in that song again, ha! What new drugstore beauty buys are you loving right now?? We'd love recommendations! In the meantime, check out Meijer Style for more fun style and beauty tips!

  1. The Garnier Micellar water is the BEST! I put it in my February favorites video :) And I've heard about the reverse volume system! My fine hair definitely needs the volume, and yours looks gorgeous in the photo. I'll give it a try! Ps, I didn't have Miss New Booty in my head until you mentioned it and now I CAN'T STOP SINGING IT!
