♡ January Favorites

February 02, 2013

It seems that the older I get, the faster time seems to move. I know everybody says it, but this month really has gone quickly, I can't believe it's February already!

Ridiculously fast ticking clocks aside, January has been a fantastic month for product discoveries and re-discoveries. I would love to say that the healthy eating resolutions have gone just as well, but there was simply too much left over chocolate to get through...

1. Bioderma Crealine H2O
After hearing almost a million rave reviews about this stuff, I decided my life wouldn't quite be complete until I gave it a go. This little potion has worked absolute wonders for me since it arrived on my doorstep. I no longer dread having to take my makeup off at night as it makes the task so much easier and quicker. Most importantly however, this doesn't irritate my super sensitive skin or eyes at all... pretty amazing stuff really. 

 2. Revlon Lip Butter in Pink Truffle
With all the cold weather and snow this month my lips have been pretty dry throughout the day so this lip butter has been perfect. It leaves a lovely wash of colour without gradually drying my lips out. I'm also in love with the colour, Pink Truffle is kind of a 'my lips but better' shade for me so it's just about the easiest thing to wear - especially when i'm in a rush!

 3. Nuxe Rève de Miel
I simply can't say enough good things about this lip balm. It really is the best balm I've ever tried. Ready my full review here.

4. Mac Mineralize Skinfinish in Soft and Gentle
I go through phases where I either love or hate highlighting, but this month I rediscovered this buried at the bottom of my make up stash and just couldn't get enough. I brush some of this onto my cheekbones for a gorgeous touch of shimmer without being too glittery. It also wears quite well throughout the day as even after I touch up with some powder, a subtle sheen is still noticeable.

 5. CoverGirl Lash Blast Volume Mascara
I loved this so much I've used up the whole tub. Full review here

As it has been such a cold and snowy month, I've also been addicted to snuggling up with my hot water bottle and a cup of tea. As much as i'm looking forward to spring and summer, I do enjoy the 'cosyness' of winter nights by the fire...

 Hope you have all had a lovely month.
