So the first month of 2016 has flown by to say the least, and before I knew it, it was time for a favourites post for all you lovely humans - so here we are. I decided against doing a 2015 favourite products because honestly there was so many products I tried and fell in love with, you guys would be reading for months, or at least until 2017. For my favourites posts this year, I am going to be picking 5 products that I have loved the most for that month, so the posts are relatively short and sweet, but I am going to be bringing back my product of the week posts as well, so there will be lots of content in these up coming months. Anyways, these are the products I have been loving for the month of January.
Neutrogena Rapid Clear Daily Scrub
One of my favourite Youtubers Thataylaa, has always raved about the Neutrogena Rapid Clear line, and for the past few months my face has been having a moment of weakness and breaking out everywhere... So it was time to bring out the big guns, and I have to say this scrub is amazing. I have been using it in the mornings and I honestly think that it has been helping my skin out a lot. My breakouts have subsided, and my skin is starting to look a lot better. I think this product is going to become one of my holy grails.
The Body Shop Tea Tree Face Mask
So there is another one from Thataylaa, I have had this mask for a while now but I recently started using it again... I can never seem to find the time to do face masks, I'm not sure why but it always seems like so much effort (who agrees?) Anyways, I am reintegrating face masks into my skincare because man do they ever make a difference. This mask starts to clear up my acne while its on, and the cooling affect of the tea tree makes my skin feel fantastic. I have been using this twice a week and its made a hell of a difference in my skin, even though doing masks is a pain in the ass, I am forcing myself to because the results outweigh the effort.
Nivea Men After Shave Balm - Sensitive
So I heard NikkieTutorials raving about using this after shave balm as a primer, so I had to buy it. I cannot even put into words how fucking fantastic of a primer this product is. It has glycerin in it and everything sticks to glycerin, so your makeup does not budge all day. I have super oily skin as we all know and this product keeps my makeup looking flawless all day and into the night. Seriously everyone should just go out and buy this right meow.
Rimmel Lasting Finish 25 Hour Foundation 091 Light Ivory
Seriously this foundation, I have fallen in love. I''m still not sure why anyone would need a 25 hour foundation but thats beside the point, this foundation does not come off. Every Saturday I have a 20 hour work day, I get ready at 8 am and do not get home again until between 3 and 4 am, the fact this foundation can make it through that whole day and still look decent by the time I finally get home means, its amazing. It can get a little oily if you don't set it and have oily skin but once its set this stuff doesn't go anywhere.
Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette
This product is a oldy but a goodie, I just recently started using this palette again, and I honestly don't know why I ever stopped. I love the rosey colours, the pigment is amazing and all the colours blend out beautifully. I have been using this pretty much every day for my simple work day to day makeup look and the nights when I work at the bar, its so easy to make a bold eye look, but still look classy with this palette. I just cant say enough good things about this eyeshadow palette.
