January Favourites

Thoroughout January, I've found myself falling back in love with the Clarins Gentle Exfoliator Brightening Toner which removes any impurities and dead skin cells and helps reveal soft, smooth and brighter looking skin all in one sweep. I reserve this for the evenings as that is when I like to really spend my time doing my skincare routine and I like to ensure that I go over my skin a few times with this to get the full effect. The only other skincare product that I've been loving throughout January is the La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo+ which I now mainly use every other morning to avoid my skin getting used to it. It's a blemish busting cream which helps heal extisting breakouts as well as prevent any new ones as well as helping to combat redness, minimise blackheads, reduces red marks and scarring as well as helping with any oil. I find that a little goes a long way with this so it's definitely good value for money.

A repeated apperance from NARS Laguna Bronzer definitely means that it's now love as it would now appear that I've overcome my breaking out issue after a few days of using which now means that I can wear it all week long! It's the perfect bronzer to contour with as it's not quite matte so it has a slight sheen to it which looks beautiful when the light hits the cheeks. I love this so much now that I've turned my back on my beloved NYC Smooth Skin Bronzer in Sunny! The only brush that I've been using with the Laguna Bronzer is the Real Techniques Expert Face Brush which is the ideal shape to contour with. It gets right into the hollows of my cheeks and blends it out beautifully so that no harsh lines are left - I urge everybody to try this brush to contour with as you won't regret it! The last product that I've been loving throughout January is the Maybelline Colour Elixir in Petal Pusher which hasn't been featured on the blog until now! This is literally the perfect lipgloss to add a slight wash of colour and gloss without feeling sticky or tacky on the lips. I never used to be a lipgloss fan until now so I'm determined to try more from the lineup.
