So its the first favourites of the year! I always love reading about everyones January faves because theres loads of new exciting things that people have been using from Christmas! Mine includes a few Christmas presents but also some old rediscoveries and some new buys.
Oskia renaissance cleansing gel £28
I mentioned in my new year makeup resolutions post about trying some more premium skincare and one thing ive been using this past month is this Oskia renaissance cleansing gel. This costs £28 from Space NK which is the most expensive cleanser I have ever had but I kept hearing so many good things that I had to try it. I take off the bulk of my makeup first with some micellar water then go in with this afterwards. It literally melts off any remaining makeup, smells lovely and leaves your skin feeling soft, clean and glowy.
Urban Decay lipstick in 'rush' £15.50
This is the first lipstick from Urban Decay that ive had and I am so impressed that I really want to try more. This is a gorgeous mauve-pink shade with a creamy finish. It stays on my lips for ages and is actually really moisturising which is perfect for my dry lips. I love wearing this with my fave Mac lip pencil; Soar.
Smashbox primer water £20
This is a product that gets raved about so much but I put off getting it for so long! 'But its just water' I kept thinking to myself! I finally decided to ask for this as a gift for Christmas and honestly im in love. After moisturising I literally drench my dehydrated skin in this and wait for it to dry. I feel like it really prepares my skin for makeup application and makes my skin look more dewy. I love to spray it on after my makeup aswell to stop things looking cakey and to further hydrate my skin.
Makeup Academy highlighter in pink shimmer £3
Ive had his highlighter for so long, probably about a year but never really paid attention to it. This past month ive been using it loads and its now one of my fave highlighters. This costs £3 from Superdrug which is obviously a complete bargain and I love that has a pink tone to it as I dont have anything else like it in my collection. I either use this on its own with my fave Zoeva bamboo highlight brush or spritz my brush with my Smashbox primer water (above) for a seriously intense glow.
Urban Decay naked concealer £17.50
After hearing every youtuber and blogger rave about this I finally decided to purchase. I got this a few months ago and have used it almost every day since. The coverage is amazing yet it isnt cakey for undereye use, which is what I got it for. I got the shade light neutral which is the perfect shade to lighten and brighten under my eyes.
Lush I love juicy shampoo £5.75
I have very fine flat hair which gets greasy quickly. I spotted this in Lush about a month ago and noticed that it said it was good for product build up, which I have due to using dry shampoo everyday! This has a gorgeous fruity mango smell and leaves my hair feeling super clean and soft.
Laura Mercier almond coconut milk body creme £49 for set of 6
I have wanted a Laura Mercier body cream for literally years but couldnt jusify spending £45 on one myself when I literally have a draw full of other body creams and lotions! I noticed the christmas gift set of 6 mini ones in Space NK and decided straight away they were going on my Christmas list. With 6 to choose from I can decide which scents I like the most and they look so cute lined up on my shelf! This almond coconut milk one is by far my favourite one and I will for sure be purchasing the full size. I love the smell of almond and this smells exactly like my favourite body butter from The Body Shop which has sadly been discontinued *cries*
