January Favourites!


I love favourites posts, just because you're writing about products that have been thoroughly tried and tested and therefore have a lot more to say about them. However I usually end up lusting after hundreds of products that I don't own and therefore have to go out and buy... Not my fault.

Soap&Glory Sugar Crush Body Buttercream
Technically I'm not supposed to even use this let alone feature it in a favourites as it belongs to my mum, but with it's beautiful packaging, it would be rude not to at least try it. They smell is just so delightful, and it actually moisturises and keeps my body feeling moisturised for a long time! It's got a nice whipped formula so it feels so light on the skin, and doesn't leave me feeling all tacky and horrible. Good enough to eat I'd say!

Bioderma
I can't even believe I've been sucked in to the hype. I hate to say it (Well, I don't really) but it's just so good. It literally feels like you are putting water on your face, unlike some that leave an oily residue behind. It magically breaks down and removes all of my makeup with a few swipes. Genius!

Benefit Porefessional
When I first tried this I just didn't get it. I didn't understand what everyone was talking about in saying that 'It was the best thing ever' and 'It was a miracle worker'. I think that was partially due to the fact I hadn't really ever used a primer before and therefore wasn't even sure what it should be doing. I mean it's called 'PORE'fessional for a reason... But, I mean when I actually look at my pores after using this underneath my makeup there is honestly such a huge difference. It just took me a while to realise. My skin feel so smooth when I use this which also means my foundation goes on so much better and easier. I'm not sure that it makes my makeup last any longer but it's still amazing!

NARS Laguna Bronzer
I may have mentioned this in a favourites before but this is just a life changer. This perfect blend of brown but not too muddy and golden but not orange has made me want to buy so many more Nars products. I'm not sure if that's a god thing or a bad thing considering now I've started I won't be able to stop. Nonetheless, it's thoroughly worth the hype!

Dolce and Gabanna Light Blue
Again I'm not sure if I've featured this in a post before or not but I don't want to go on about it too much as there is just so much to say I'd be here for days. It's a beautiful all year round scent I'd say. Incredibly fresh but so feminine at the same time. Dolce and Gabbana never fail to make a delicious perfume. 

L'oreal Super Liner
Instead of picking up plain black like I assumed I would, I accidentally picked up 'Black Crystals' which is still black but has really tiny subtle crystals in and surprisingly, I really like it! They aren't extremely noticeable which I love but then they add a really nice feminine touch and make me feel all glamorous. A nice surprise!

Real Techniques Expert Face Brush
For years I've used MAC's 187 brush, which is amazing don't get me wrong and leaves a really natural finish, but by the time I'm finished I end up with more hair on my face than what's in the brush. Considering I haven't used one brush from Real Techniques and not loved it I thought I ought to change my routine a little bit. It's the perfect size to buff in foundation and blends really well! 

Carmex
Not the most glamorous lip balm out there, but it certainly works. It has a very distinctive smell, a bit minty and extremely fresh. It absorbs really nicely into the lips and is an instant relief when my lips feel dry or chapped, and also makes them feel really plumped! It's probably one of those 'love it or hate it' products and I definitely love it.


My apologies that this favourites post is packed full of cult beauty favourites that you've most likely heard a billion people talk about, however they really are all amazing and I recommend each and every item mentioned to you all!

What has been your favourites this month? Have you tried anything new?

Have a great day!
