The year of the Rabbit starts January 22, 2023! This means that now is the perfect time to find a lucky gift to celebrate the Lunar New Year, and to deliver some good luck to your loved ones.

As I mention every year, ReVive is my favorite skin care line, therefore, this lucky Lunar New Year version of their fabulous eye mask is the perfect gift for the skin care aficionado on your list. Of course, Shiseido is equally fabulous, so why not indulge in both!

I love this yummy candy bento box as a gift idea. It is perfect for someone with a sweet tooth, or when you aren’t quite sure what to get! The handbag fan on your list will love this practical and lucky red camera bag. It is a daily bag that someone, maybe even you, will love!

Scented body lotion for spring 2022

scented body lotion for spring

Scented body location for spring 2022 from top left: honey vanilla body butter / sugar coconut body melt (love this one!) / Tahitian Manoi body butter (my current favorite!) / sugar coconut body butter / creme brulee body cream (another favorite of mine!) / sugar lemon body lotion /

Do you love fragrances as much as I do? Of course you do! One of the fun ways to wear fragrance, without using perfume, if through scented body lotion. In addition to fun scents, body lotion of great for keeping our skin hydrated and also to help slow down the aging process. Love that!

As you can tell from the scents I have chosen to feature, I love a good gourmand. When temperatures heat up, I gravitate towards coconut and citrus scents. So, while a good vanilla is my go-to during the cooler months, I switch things up and reach for coconut or citrus scents in warmer temperatures. That being said, I am currently addicted to Colleen Rothschild’s Tahitian Manoi. It’s slightly tropical, slightly sweet, and very smooth. I am not really sure how to describe it except to say-LOVE! So, if you are looking for a new scent, try Tahitian Manoi!

These are also my go-to brands when it comes to body cream. Laura Mercier, Lalicious, Colleen Rothschild, and Fresh offer non-greasy, non-drying, very, moisturizing body care products. If you are looking for a great cream, but a different scent than what I am featuring, these are the best brands for body care, in my opinion.

Spring 2022 beauty must-haves

Spring 2022 beauty must haves from top left: neck cream / face cream / eye cream / hand cream / concealer / foundation powder / Moroccanoil / shampoo / (conditioner not pictured) /

The weather is changing, and all this wind is drying out my skin! It’s time to make sure we all have our skin care and hair care in order for the new season. Plus, now that we are putting away our masks, we need to make sure our skin looks good when we leave the house!

My standby skincare routine from Revive is must-have for spring 2022. I have been using this neck cream since I was 28, and I love it. I also love this face cream which has SPF; a must-have in any face cream we use. Also, this eye cream is fabulous.

I don’t know about you, but my hands get very dry. This hand cream is perfect for combating my dry skin as the weather changes. I keep a tube in my room, and one at my desk. I highly recommend it!

Now that we are all leaving the house maskless, we need to cover up those imperfections! This concealer is a favorite of mine as it is lightweight and conceals any spots I need to hide. As you know, I am huge fan of this foundation powder. It acts as foundation, and as a setting powder; so it’s apply and go! I love a fast routine in the morning. It also has SPF, love that!

My hair gets dry when the seasons change, so my hair stylist recently recommended this shampoo. I love it! I have been using it for roughly three months now and I notice a huge difference in my hair. It’s a little pricey, but worth every penny. I’m hooked!
