Not everyone seems to like January. I LOVE it. We started a new year, got some bargains in the sales,I celebrated my 18th birthday and my blog turned one! Here are a selection of beauty products I've enjoyed using this month.
Liz Earle Energising Body Lotion £17.00
When I first saw this i thought 'energising' was a weird verb for a moisturiser. It claims to firm and tone the skin whilst improving it's elasticity. It has improved the appearance of my skin, but It hasn't really toned it. I think this is more suited for older skin but it's a lovely light body lotion.
Ahava Mineral Foot Cream £13.50
I like Ahava products, and my feet have been so dry lately. This product has been a life saver this month.
Tanatomical 'because only bacon should be streaky' Natural Tanning Cream £6.50
Possibly the best fake tan name ever?! This is my new favourite fake tan, I've tested quite a lot of different brands out & currently in the middle of writing a mahoosive post on fake tan. This one smells really nice and more importantly looks natural!
Lulu & Boo Organics Rosehip Face Lifting Serum (LINK!) £28.00Lulu & Boo is an award-winning organic skincare company. I love using oils on my face, I have normal to combination skin. I've been trying this product for a while now and I really love it. It's quite expensive but it lasts ages, I've had it for a couple of months and don't think I've touched 1/4 of it yet? The packaging says use 6 drops, then massage it into your skin from the neck upwards. The scent is delicious, it kinda reminds me of liquorice. I do feel more relaxed when the oil is applied and my skin looks clearer and feels softer in the morning. This serum is 100% raw and orgainic, it's also suitable for vegans & vegarations - yay!
MAC Pro Longwear £22.50
I've had such a love hate realtionship with this foundation. It one of my first MAC purchases and I really wanted to get it right. When I first tried it, it left my skin feeling dry & looking matte; not happy as it was 22.50! But it's grown on me. The coverage is quite full but has a nice natural finish. Still not sure it's worth the price tag!
So...? Kiss me £1.79
Body Sprays are so handy for keeping in my handbag/locker. It's nice to freshen up throughout the day. This one from So...? Is an absolute bargain and smell delish.
Nougat London Pampering Body Scrub £18.00*
Completely obsessed with Body Scrubs at the mo. I loved the Burt's Bees sugar scrub featured in my last favourites; but I'm the sort of person that doesn't often re purchase the same products again and again. I suffer from red patches on my upper arms, not sure what the technical name is for it but I know a lot of people have the same thing! Exfoliating a few times a week helps to keep the skin on my arms clear. I also use this on any dry bits like my elbows as it's really moisturising!
Lashaholic 07 £7.99
If i'm going out somewhere nice I like to pop on a pair of false eyelashes. It can be difficult finding a pair that suit your eye shape. At first I had trouble with getting this to look right, so I cut them in half and just used the outer corners. Helps to elongate eyes. These lashes are really light weight and 100% handmade.
Next month I'm going to do a 'Worst Products of the Month' sort of post - spice things up a bit! What beauty product have you been enjoying this year so far?
