This month I’ve been using lots of new products which I received for Christmas which has given me a chance to find some new favourites. I am now however on a strict one in one out system with my make up bag – I’m not sure how long this will last though as I love trying new products!
First up is the Soap & Glory Vitamin Face Wash. I have to admit, when I saw this as part of the set I got for Christmas I was sceptical! I’ve tried the cleansing milk in the past and it broke me out and made my face super itchy! I thought I’d give this a go on a whim one day before my bath and I instantly loved it! The smell is so refreshing! It really feels like it’s cleaned my face but doesn’t leave it feeling tight at all. I use this every three days or so and I haven’t had any reactions. It’s a firm new skincare favourite!
Another product from Soap & Glory which I’ve recently discovered is the ‘Speed Plump’ moisturiser. I’ve been using this every morning and not only does it wake my skin up a bit it also keeps me feeling hydrated throughout the day. I love the scent of this, it’s slightly citrusy which definitely helps to perk up my dull skin.
The L’Oréal ‘Sculpting Palette’ was a recent addition to my make up drawer. I have been searching for the perfect contour shade for months and this is definitely the best I’ve tried! It’s the first cream product I’ve tried and so far so good! It does take a while to get used to working into the skin but it does a good job once it’s worked in! It’s not too dark and doesn’t leave me looking like I’ve smeared mud along the hollows of my cheek bones!
I’ve been reaching for my Naked Basics palette more than any of my other eye palettes this month. The shades are my perfect everyday shades but are versatile enough to be amped up and provide me with the perfect evening look. The shades are so pigmented and last all day long! There’s also hardly any fall out which makes applying this fuss free and easy!
I received a Clarins lip set for Christmas and I’ve been talking about trying the ‘Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector’ for ages so couldn’t wait to try this out. I love it! I love the applicator, the scent and the texture. It is thick but not sticky and I definitely feel like it’s working! It keeps my lips hydrated and flakiness at bay for the day.
I’d love to find out what you’ve been loving in January, let me know or leave a link to your post in the comments!
