January 2012 Favourites


Clarisonic Classic, Urban Decay Naked Palette, Soap & Glory The Righteous Butter, Ciaté My Fair Lady, Figs & Rouge Coco Vanilla

Urban Decay Naked Palette. I was lucky enough to get this for Christmas and haven't touched another eyeshadow since. I was worried that this palette would be too cool toned for me as I know other people have found but it's perfect and there's enough different colours in there for a thousand looks.

Soap & Glory The Righteous Butter. As brilliant a moisturiser as this is, it's the smell more than anything that's made me use it everyday this month. I think I've had this tub since last Christmas (which is a little gross I know!) but I've only recently started using it after treating myself to a little bottle of Miss Dior Cherie at the end of December and realising they smell the same! The perfect body butter/fragrance combination.

Figs & Rouge Coco Vanilla Lip Balm. I got a Figs & Rouge lip balm in a beauty box a while back and although I really liked it, I wasn't crazy about the smell. I think it was geranium or something flowery? This Coco Vanilla version smells amazing though tastes just as good too! I usually have about five different lip balms knocking about in the bottom of my bag, but this is the one I've been reaching for the most this month.

Ciaté My Fair Lady. I don't think I've ever worn the same nail varnish twice in a row, more than likely owing to the fact that I have over a million, but recently I've been loving wearing this nude colour and nothing else. It just feels really clean and simple.

Clarisonic Classic. I actually got this nearly a year ago for my birthday and I've had a bit of an on off relationship with it. Being the lazy person that I am, I never seem to find the time to do use this every morning and night when I could easily splash my face with water and a bit of cleanser and be out the door a lot faster and in bed for longer! Recently though, seeing the buzz around the Clarisonic grow and grow I've really wanted to start use it properly again, not just once or twice a week. For the last month I've managed to use this every night and every other morning and there really has been an amazing difference in my skin. I did have that awful 1-2 week purging phase where I didn't want to leave the house, but now it's so smooth and I've gotten rid of a lot of those little under the skin pimples that are the bane of my life. It is pricey, but so so worth it if you're willing to persist! A lot of people have been getting the Mia recently which is a little less, but just as good I'm sure!
