January Favourites

I actually cannot believe we are at the end of January, normally I really hate the month of January. It always goes really slow, pay day seems a hundred years away after being paid early for Christmas, no one has any money, I never have any plans but this year has been a little different. I have been busy pretty much every weekend with seeing friends and getting out and about. I have also been trying to be really good this month with food and I have lost 5 pounds so far this month which is massive for me!  

My favourites this month are a little scattered but seem to suit the time of year quite well. First up is this ELF cream blush and bronzer in shade St Lucia, I absolutely adore this product. It is so buttery soft and blends like a dream. The blush shade is a lovely warm coral colour which is perfect for this time of year and the bronzer is a medium brown shade that is great for contouring. This product is just absolutely incredible, I can't tell you how much I love it and for a price tag of only £3.75 it is a must for any ladies makeup bag. 

For Christmas my sister bought me a little travel size set of Sarah Chapman products and within it was this Overnight Facial which is like a serum and oil in one. I have heard so much about Sarah Chapman in the past couple of months and seen really great reviews on this individual product so I was really excited to try it. This has absolutely transformed my dry skin, I apply in the evening after cleansing and toning and it leaves my skin with such an amazing glow. I will be doing a full review on this product soon.

French Connection Body Lotion, this is another product which I received for Christmas. It came in a set with a shower gel and a body spray encased in a lovely toiletry bag. The smell of this lotion is just so lovely. I can't quite put my finger on what the scent actually is as it's not fruity or floral. It's more like a amber/woody smell which I just adore. The lotion sinks in really quickly and leaves the skin feeling super moisturised which is great for this time of year. Continuing with the skincare theme I have also been loving the Clarins Exfoliating Scrub, this scrub leaves your skin feeling so incredibly soft and has a lovely floral scent to it. 

I have recently rediscovered this Soap & Glory Mascara, it was one of my favourites a couple of months back but it seemed to go to the bottom of the pile when something new came along but I found it the other week in my drawer and decided to give it another go and rediscovered why I loved it so much. It doesn't clump and separates lashes perfectly giving a full effect. Plus the packaging is just lovely, I'm a sucker for anything shiny. 

And lastly, I have been loving this Revlon Brow product for the past couple of months. It is dual ended with a pencil on one end and a gel on the other. I find it's just so easy to work with and gives a natural full finish. 

So they're my favourites from this month. What have yours been?
