January was a bit of a bizarre month. It was cold, busy, windy and gray. If I have to be completely honest, I would say that in January I was not ready to experiment with anything new, but preferred to use products that are in my comfort zone and have been used for quite a while (at least most of them). All I needed this month was comfort, sleep and warmth. So I am dividing my faves in three parts – body, face and scents. Here we go…
My body faves are all very comforting (yes, that would be the theme).
Soap and Glory Whipped Clean – it is a shower butter, that is rich, creamy, fantastically foaming and it smells like heaven on earth!
Ziaja – Natural Olive oil body lotion – this has been my body lotion of choice for about two or three months, and I do love it. It is a bit liquidy but still very rich, and I love the way my skin feels when I use it.
Ziaja Kids Shampoo and Shower Gel – Holy, moly, cookies and cream! This smells amazing! It smells like childhood and sweets. I have only used it as a showergel, and not as a shampoo, but it lathers well and the whole bathroom smells like cookies and cream after that. The boy loves it as well, so it shall be repurchased!
Weleda Skin Food – during winter months my hands resemble desert. Dry, cracked and uncomfortable – this is magic! Asbolutely love it.
Bio-oil – Have been using Bio Oil for a scar on my arm and the scar has faded a bit. I am going to write a post about it soon. But lately I have been using it on my face as well and it is pretty nice!
Too Faced Chocolate Bar – it is pretty much in every post, but I am a bit addicted – it has all I need for my make up, it is easy to blend and smells divine when you open the packaging. I am loving the mattes and two of the deep purples- Cherry Cordial and Black Forest Truffle. The only thing that I am a bit bummed out is that it creases on me, and it is not the most long lasting ever. But the colors are so amazing that I can settle with a primer for that.
Avene Couvrance Brow Pencil – it is my first brow pencil ever, and I have been a fan this month. I love that it has a little brush at the end that I use to smudge and comb through my brows.
NYX Butter Lip Gloss in Creme Brulée – again a product that is so loved and so within my comfort zone. I have been loving the formula that is not sticky at all, but still lasts a long time. And it does smell like candy!
Korres Mandarin lip butter stick – so very well loved, this has been a saviour in the windy winter days. It has been in my coat pocket since the beginning of winter and you can see that even the writing on the packaging has rubbed off. So much love!
Avon Premiere Luxe Gold Blush – It is spring in a bottle. It smells like roses and peaches and jasmin, but has a hint of pepper and pachouli. Definitely one of the most me-scents there is.
Nivea dry comfort deo roll on – this has been a replacement of my unattainable in Bulgaria Secret deodorant. I have tried three of the roll-on series and I can report that I have no complaints! Does not last 48 hours for sure on me, but gets me through the day.
These are my favourites this months. Have you tried any of them? Do you have any recommendations that I should try next month? Keep me posted!
