January Favourites

January was quite a boring month for me makeup wise. I didn't really try anything new, and didn't change anything in my makeup routine too much so I really struggled picking out some beauty favourites of the month. I've been trying to take care of my skin a bit more though, so skincare has been a favourite of mine on the whole throughout the month. I refound love for some old products, and started using my stash a bit more, here's what I've been loving!

Benefit They're Real | I recently repurchased this, and I am so glad that I did. I loved this mascara for so long last year, but I just couldn't justify purchasing it when I could get such a similar mascara on the highstreet for half the price. After repurchasing, I've realised that nothing is ever really quite as good as They're Real and I will be repurchasing it again and again. Saying that Rollerlash is pretty high up on my list to try too, maybe I'll purchase that next...

Good Things Stay Clear Purifying Cleanser | I picked this up in a bit of a mad TK Maxx haul at the beginning of December and it must've cost me about £2.50 but I absolutely love it. It removes makeup so easily and it's so refreshingly cool on the skin that I will be purchasing this again. I'm not going to say it works wonders and does anything fancy as I generally just use it as a makeup remover before going in with another cleanser to double cleanse, but for £2.50 it's doing a pretty good job.

Lush The Comforter Shower Cream | When I visited Birmingham over New Year I finally took the plunge and bought Lush's The Comforter Shower Cream and I'm not really sure how I lived without it before. It is heaven in a bottle. Alongside Yuzu and Cocoa, I haven't used anything else in my showers all month. (You're probably thinking that I'm lying because the bottle is full, I've loved it so much that I've already purchased a new one for when I run out...)

L'Oreal Infallible Matte Foundation | I talked about this more in my 2015 Favourites Base Products post, which you can read here for a better review. This is the best matte foundation I have ever tried, but I am pale af right now and the lightest shade is a little dark so I think I need to get my hands on those The Body Shop Lightening Drops. Fu highstreet foundations for being too dark.

St Ives Apricot Gentle Face Scrub | This is another product that I included in my 2015 Favourites in the skincare section, you can read the full post here. This is a product that I used to love god knows how many months ago, and I picked it up again to rekindle my love for it. It rekindled. I am in love again. It's a great alternative to my Lush Ocean Salt Face Scrub for the more gentle days.

What have you been loving this January?
