Embrace Spring!

Congratulations, readers, you’ve made it!  March 20th marks the first day of Spring 2011.  Embrace the new season with Beauty of a Site!

1. Wear Green.

The most prominent sign of the new season is the hints of green popping up all over the country.  Whether for your favorite St. Patty’s day party or just for celebrating the season, green celebrates new growth and new chances.  It’s an essential part of your wardrobe!

Try OPI’s Don’t Mess with OPI, from the Texas Collection, Zoya’s Gemma, or China Glaze’s Starboard from Anchor’s Away, for a chic green hue.

2. Welcome Florals.

More than any other season, Spring has its very own smell. Even before the flowers start blooming, get rid of winter’s musty smell with fresh florals of your own!

Fragrances of Spring

Choose Kai’s Room and Linen spray for hawaiian-inspired freshness, or this lily-scented candle from Aunt Sadie!

3. Bring on the sun!

Warmer weather, short sleeves and flip flops are not far off.  Prepare your skin for the challenge: scrub up, moisturize and bring on the bronze!

Product Review: Juara Candlenut Body Creme

Juara Candlenut Body CremeFor the month of September, Beauty of a Site is partnering with Juara to offer ALL of their incredible skincare products at 15% off- all month long, on any sized order!

In honor of those momentous occasion, I wanted to try out one of their most popular products: The Candlenut Body Creme.

First impressions: Hello tropical. It’s not an overpowering tanning oil-infused tropical smell, but a soft, calm, relaxing nutty smell (reminiscent of coconut). I hate overpowering fragrances, and this formula featured the perfect balance.

Consistency: As a body creme, the product is definitely thick and creamy, but not in any way heavy. The moisturizer almost feels whipped; light enough to soak in, but thick enough to nourish the skin.

Result: Skin feels silky, not sticky, but deeply moisturized. The scent lingers slightly, which has a surprisingly powerful calming effect! I actually used the product on recently sunburnt skin, and was amazed by how soothing the creme was! It isn’t necessarily designed for healing, but it was so moisturizing that I felt serious improvement.

Usage: Because of the creme’s thick consistency, a little goes a LONG way! I used a .17 oz sample and was able to apply the creme liberally on both my arms and legs.  Success!

I highly suggest giving this body creme a try, particularly at such a great price!  Click here to check it out!
