JANUARY FAVOURITES 2014!


Hello lovelies! The first month of the year is well and truly over and we are now into the month of loveee [Oooh la la]. January was a good month to me. It was the beginning of a new year, fresh start and new goals. Buh bye January, February..please be good! Okay, last month I haven't try anything new. In actual fact, I didn't go shopping at all in January [..a round of applauds please]-That is a record for me. The items that I'm about to share with you all are the things that stood out for me and that I had been reaching for a lot. So, my first favourite item of January is...

Skincare

BIODERMA Crealine H20 Solution

Yes, it is everyone's cult favourite Bioderma solution. I believe I bought this baby just before January and I fell in love [actually not me..my skin did]. I love how gentle it is on my skin. It gets rid of any makeup or dirt that might still be left on my skin, after I've cleansed my face. It doesn't break me out or make me have any bad reaction to it whatsoever. I know that there's another version of this, that is catered for oily/combination skin people like me. I might try that one out once I've used this up and see if there's a major difference between the two. The only down side to this product, is the expensive price tag. This little baby bottle cost me $20AUD, whereas the full size bottle is $50AUD. I will probably repurchase it when there's a sale going on. I've also heard that there's a dupe for this, which is the Loreal Micellar solution. It would be amazing if it is, so I can save a bit of $$. Overall, been really lovin' the Bioderma.

THE BODY SHOP Mango Body Butter

Mmmmmm...is all I can say about this body butter. No seriously, this stuff smells so amazing and delicious. Mango is one of my favourite fruit and clearly, I like smelling like it too. Mango and summer is just the perfect combo. I like to apply this right after I come out of the shower [if I'm going out somewhere], so the product really absorbed into my skin. It's thick and it's creamy but it's so moisturizing for the body and leave it feeling smooth. There are array of different flavours/scents you can get. You should probably get your hands on one if you haven't already.☺

Makeup

NYX Blush in Mocha 

I've used this blush nearly everyday for the month of January. I absolutely LOVE it! I love how this blush is  matte- so there isn't any shimmers or glitter in it yet it still provide a nice healthy glow. This makes your cheeks look very natural [like you have been running around in the snow..]. It has a nice dusty, rosy pink color, which I think really compliments girls like me who has olive, tanned skin tone. A little goes the longest way with this product. It is very pigmented and if you use too much, you'll end up looking like a clown. Yikes! Very affordable for such an amazing product, really can't fault this.

MAJOLICA MAJORCA Lash Gorgeous Wing Neo Mascara

I did a full review on this mascara a while back so I won't go into detail here. [Check out the review HERE ] To sum it up quickly, I really like using this when I'm doing a very natural makeup look. It lengthens my lashes very well and doesn't clumped up. Great mascara for layering and everyday wear.

Hair care 

MACADAMIA Deep Repair Masque 

This product is my hair's best friend. It makes my dry, yucky hair into beautiful glossy hair that could potentially be on a hair commercial. I use this once a week and it just makes a huge difference to my hair. After rinsing this out of my hair, it leaves it feeling silky and soft. It really hydrate my hair and make them look more healthier. It smells ahhmazing too [why wouldn't you want to whip your hair back and forth after using this product]! It is on the more pricier side but it is well worth the splurge. 

Random

HEALTHY CARE Australia Vitamin C

Okay..this is pretty random but whateves. This is why it is in my random category haha. My father dearest bought me this in the beginning of January and I just have been taking it daily. If you listened in health class at school, you will know that Vitamin C is very good for your health. They have been a few days where I felt a bit under the weather and after taking Vitamin C, I was cured. It just helps boost my immune system and it's a great antioxidant also, among other great benefits from Vitamin C. If it's difficult for you to swallow tablets, you can find ones that are chewable like mine. Apart from Vitamin C, I also take spirulina and fish oil daily. All these supplements make me a happy camper and feelin goood.

Music
THE SUMMER SET

I was introduced to this band by my friend and I'm so glad she did. They are amazing! The first song I listened by The Summer Set was Boomerang and I loved it. It's such a fun and catchy song that just make you want to stand up and have a boogie. I've probably listened to this song for more than a hundred times on repeat and still counting... Some of my favorite songs are; Lightning In A Bottle, 7 Days and Mannequin. Definitely check out their music! 

That's it for my January favourites. Let me know what YOU loved in the month of January!

    1. I'm so proud of myself haha. I bet the cocoa one smells divine too. I haven't try other products from Macadamia apart from the masque but I definitely will. I'm already starting to see a difference, when in doubt, take a Vitamin C haha.
