January is such a meh month. Lets face it, Christmas and New Year are over, and being at University means that I have my exams all month (grim). In order to cheer myself up (and distract myself from revision) I’ve been trying new products and taking some real time to take care of myself. My top five products for January are:
I was given this cleanser as a sample, but look how cute it is!! It's perfect travel size – and is lasting me so long. I use this cleanser in the morning, as it is really light, so I don’t know how it would do taking off my makeup at night. The scent is so fresh and lovely, but is quite pungent, so be aware of that before you buy it!
Origins Drink up Intensive Face Mask
This is so lovely. The smell, the feel, the results –ahhhhhh I love it. Whilst writing this I got too excited about it so went and whacked it on. This mask is meant to be left on overnight, so I apply this at the end of a pamper evening and let it dry before I sleep. To start with, it smells amazing – so fruity you could almost eat it. When you apply the mask, it feels so hydrating – and you can definitely see the brightening results in the morning!
Coastal Scents Revealed Palette
I bought this palette right before I came back to uni and it has been used daily ever since. It has so many colours, and I still have colours yet to try. I hate to say I have neglected all other eye shadows since this came along – actually I don’t hate to say it at all, I love this palette!
My boyfriend’s lovely parents treated me to a pair of these after I had major slipper envy when we went skiing last year. They are lined with sheep wool, and coloured pink – the best. I have lived in these during revision - my favourite footwear.
Rimmel Stay Matte Foundation
My step-sister told me about this foundation on Christmas Day, whilst sorting my eyebrows which were in a dreadful state. Her skin looked so perfect and as I love foundations anyway I decided that I needed it. The colour I bought is unfortunately a little (lot) dark for me – I was being rather ambitious when buying it – but as for a staying/mattifying foundation I don’t think I’ve found one that is better. The texture is very thick – I describe it as my face paint – but for those full coverage days it is pretty darn good.
