New Year, new monthly posts! I love doing these so much, and always look forward to writing a new one at the end of each month. I’m not changing the way I write these at all, and will stick to the same format that I usually do. My favourite five products of the month. This year I’ll try not to repeat any products, but if I do alas, it just means it’s an amazing product!
- Lush The Comforter Shower Cream. (link)
This is a shower cream I received in one of the many Lush gift sets I got over Christmas and my birthday. I have a couple of bottles of these so I decided to start using one as a nice treat. It smells so delicious, and I already know I’ll be buying a huge bottle in future. It smells just like The Comforter bubble bar and is really strong. The scent lasts on the skin most of the day, which is great! When I first used this it didn’t foam up that well, but since then it has been great. This has been great to use before I start early shifts at work, as it really does wake me up. My boyfriend seems to really like this as well!
- The Body Shop Africa Ximenia & Salt Scrub. (link)
I picked up this beauty in the Boxing Day sales, and I really do love it! I can see picking this up over and over again as it is just an amazing body scrub. I actually used it on my boyfriends back whilst he had a bath to give him a massage, and he loved it. It leaves your skin feeling silky smooth, and you don’t need a lot as it’s super thick and goes a long way. Due to the ingredients it leaves a lovely smoothness behind that only a body lotion could do. I intend to keep the pot it came in too so I can try to create my own coffee scrub. I recommend this if you have dry skin like me, as this is perfect!
- Marc Jacobs Decadence EDP. (link)
This is a perfume my brother bought me for Christmas, and it was by far one of the nicest gifts I received! My brother always picks the best perfumes and this is probably the best he’s ever bought for me. I tried this out whilst I was on holiday and I loved it so much. I didn’t buy it though as I thought, “No I have enough perfume!” and it’s a good job I didn’t considering my brother bought me this before/during my holiday! I honestly can’t describe the scent as it’s such a unique one, very masculine smelling in my opinion. It reminds me of Illamasqua’s perfume to be honest! This is by far best fragrance by Marc Jacobs and I wish he would make more like this. I’ve been wearing this quite a lot throughout the month. I love it so much.
- Aromi Beauty Liquid Lipstick in shade Miss Mauve. (link)
I’ve gone a little liquid lipstick crazy recently (honestly I really have!) and this is one of my recent purchases, and also one of my favourites. I reviewed it recently, which you can check out here. This is a gorgeous mauve shade, which feels so comfortable and creamy on the lips. Due to the light shade it’s really wearable too, and one I have found myself reaching for for work when I fancy wearing something nice. If I fancy anything OTT and awesome, I’ll always go for my Jeffree Star shades, or MAC. I would love to try more Aromi Beauty lipsticks in the future. This one is just perfect, and I’m so glad I picked it up when I did as it’s currently sold out on Cocktail Cosmetics website!
- Laura Geller Matte Maker Invisible Oil Blotting Powder. (link)
This was one of my Christmas presents from my mom, and it was very much appreciated as I was in need of a new face powder. I think she knew that, which made this even nicer. I have been using this to set my The POREfessional by Benefit and it works really nicely with that to help keep my face matte for most of the day. I could probably do with taking this to work so I can powder during my break… But meh I’m too lazy for that! I just love this powder, and I recommend it as a finishing powder for sure.
So those were my favourites for January! Wow the first monthly favourites has come and gone already. I can see this year flying by already, I can’t believe it’s February now.
