Oh my goodness! January is what seems like the longest month of the year! That’s why I really love taking some time to myself during the month to relax, pamper myself and unwind a little bit.
For me, winter months are about being cosy, warm and having a little bit of luxury in your life. Winter is the time when we indulge a bit more, and that’s exactly what is reflected in my January monthly favourites.
1. Your Good Skin Comforting Gel Cleanser
At £1.99 this is a complete steal! This is without a doubt the most unbelievable cleanser I have ever used. It removes all of my makeup, and yet leaves my skin silky smooth and perfectly clean. It nourishes your skin while it takes off stubborn makeup, and it has cleared up all of my spots, and left me with clean and clear skin.
2. Charlotte Tilbury Magic Eye Rescue
Underneath my eyes is usually an awful area. They are wrinkled, dehydrated and a general nuisance, and so for Christmas I decided to splurge and treat myself to this little gem. This has a wonderful cooling feeling upon application, and has made my under-eye area as young and youthful as it was before exams existed!
3. L’Oréal Age Perfect Foundation
From these products, I think it’s safe to assume that I have dry skin! However, I find that I need to do more than skincare to maintain a perfectly nourished complexion. This foundation has a gel-like consistence will a medium to full coverage. It leaves the most wonderful and dewy look to the skin, and it lasts about eight hours without needing powdered or freshened up.
4. Rimmel Insta Contour Stick
This little gem blends beautifully on the skin and leaves me looking sculpted and perfectly bronzed. The highlight side of this isn’t amazing, but it is pretty good. I would use this not only for contour, but also for eye makeup looks. If I pop the contour shade in the crease and blend it out, it leaves a stunning bronzy eye look behind. The only downside to this product is the lack of shades. The shades usually run quite warm-toned which isn’t the best for someone as pale as me, and the dark shade isn’t that dark either. I usually use the shade medium.
5. Bondi Sands Gradual Tanning Foam
Even in the summer months I am still pale and pasty, so I’m sure you can imagine how pale I look during the winter! That’s how I found this tan, and it’s one of the only fake tans that makes me look bronzed and not orange. One application makes me about one foundation shade darker, which is all I am asking for!
