January Favourites

Some old favourites along with a couple of newcomers! I have spoken so much about MAC Studio Sculpt and Benefits Watts Up so I won't go on about them too much! The MAC foundation is amazing coverage with great lasting power and the highlighter gives a gorgeous glow that can be built up for a more dramatic highlight or used subtly for the daytime. Sticking with make-up, I've been loving the Bobbi Brown corrector, I wake up at 5am everyday for work so I always have dark circles under my eyes and this covers them up so well. It doesn't crease or look cakey and really helps me to look a lot more awake than I feel!

Onto skincare and body; first up is my beloved Xen-Tan. I have really got back into tanning, I'm trying to keep in up at least once a week. Even though this is called Dark Lotion Absolute Luxe, it isn't actually thaaat dark, it looks really natural but if you do it twice a week you can build it up to a darker colour which is what I'm aiming for at the moment. Another body(?) product is the L'Occitane Fleur Cherie perfume, I am rubbish at describing scents so I'm just going to put what it says on the website 'parkling, floral fragrance with a soft woody trail', who really knows what that means so go give it a sniff in a shop! But hurry cause it's limited edition! 

Finally in my favourites this month is the Origins Ginzing Moisturiser. I'm really bad at trying new skincare as I always convince myself I'll react badly to it and it will break me out, even though I don't have particularly sensitive skin -hypochondriac! But I'm so glad I gave this a go, it is such a lovely moisturiser. Firstly it smells gorgeous but also it hydrates the skin so well without being overly thick. It claims to be energy boosting which is definitely what I need with all these early mornings!

  4. I've been wanting to test out the Origins moisturiser again, but my skin is in a bit of a bad way at the moment so I'm worried the moisture factor just won't be there. Lovely picks this month though ! x
