I know this gets said every month, but seriously..where has January gone?! January always seem to be the longest month. Winding down after Christmas and the New Year ready to see what is in store for us in 2014. January for me has been quite a crappy month for me and my family, we’ve been through a loss and it has definitely taken it’s toll. Hopefully things will be better in the month of February.
After gorging on chocolate and alcohol over December and the beginning of January, my skin has definitely taken a hit, with the added stress throughout January, my skin has been left looking pretty shitey. Dull, dry and spotty are the words to perfectly sum up my skin at the moment. So skincare has been left quite basic, as has my makeup. Here are the products that I have been reaching for in January.
Elvive Damage Care Conditioning Repair Spray link. | Since having my hair cut (post here) I was determined to take better care of my hair. This Elvive leave in conditioner has really helped give my hair a real boost. It’s really lightweight and doesn’t weigh my hair down at all. It’s also great for detangling hair, my hair used to get really tangled when it was longer, since cutting it shorter..not so much. It definitely still makes it more manageable.
Victoria Secret Pure Daydream Body Spray link | I picked this body spray up at Duty Free in Rhodes Airport and it was love at first sniff. It is described as “A bright blend of fresh pearl orchid and pink currant”. It is the perfect flirty girly scent. I carry mine around in my bag, as the size of the bottle is just perfect for using on the go.
YSL Touche Eclat Radiant Touch Highlighting Pen link | One of my favourite under eye concealers! It completely covers my dark circles and highlights just the right amount to really awaken my face. It’s also great for adding a gorgeous highlight, when applied to the side of your nose. I would 100% recommend this product! It’s worth the £25 price tag, or like me..why not pick it up at Duty Free? Save a couple of pennies 😉
MAC “Please Me” Lipstick link. | This was one of the first MAC lipsticks I picked up, and I still love it! A lovely matte pink, has perfect coverage without being cakey, which some matte lipsticks can be. Clinging to any dry patches and lines in the lips. This lipstick does not do that at all. I personally love Mac’s matte lipsticks, and this is definitely one of my favourites.
MAC Pro Longwear Blush in Stay Pretty link. | I bought this product a while and didn’t get round to using it for ages. *don’t judge, we all do it!* I finally opened it at the beginning of January and fell in love. The texture is so lightweight and silky, it applies amazingly to the skin, providing a flawless finish which looks so natural. It adds just the right amount of pink, leaving you looking naturally flushed. I’ll definitely be checking other shades out from the Pro Longwear blush range.
REN Clear Clay Calm Cleanser link. | This mask has been a life saviour!! It leaves my skin feeling amazingly soft and clean, and also helping get rid of those pesky blemishes. I apply this in the shower, at least twice a week, massage it in, leave it for 5 minutes and then wash off. I was reluctant to buy this, but after reading so many positive reviews, I figured I couldn’t go wrong. I’m so glad I picked it up, and will definitely be purchasing it again..and again..and again.
