January's tend to be fast moving months, but you add a newborn baby to the mix and this month had seriously passed in the blink of an eye. I don't have a handful of cutting edge lipsticks nor do I have the newest contour pallet to share with you. Nope this month has been a back to basics kind of month, but nonetheless I have some exciting classic must haves and some new discoveries to share with you. Without further ado here are my January monthly favourites!
Clinique Moisture Surge Facial Spray
Yes the winter months are among us which means I will gladly take any source of moisture I can get. What I'm trying to say is pink bottle follows me around the house throughout the day! I seriously can't get enough of this stuff it feels great going on, but more importantly this hydrates the skin in seconds. One of my new discoveries of this year I highly recommend you try this especially if your lacking in my moisture department. You can read my full review here I did earlier this month!
Acure Radical Wrinkle Treatment
I like to leave my trucker mouth out of my beauty blog BUT this will give you that "Holy shit I look real good" even within the first application. To say this firms the skin would be an understatement, because the Acure Radical Wrinkle Treatment would be comparable to a push up bra but for the face. The finish of this product has a slight tack to it so I highly suggest popping this under your foundation. As someone who has been slacking in the sleep department I welcome any product that will take my tired droopy face to a perky well rested one.
Review here ... Outstanding ingredients, affordable price and instant results I am completely obsessed by this one!
Nuxe Reve De Meil Balm
I use to use this Reve De Meil before bed, in the winter months and prior to any bright coloured lipsticks... who am I kidding I use to use this balm all the time! Some how I finished this balm (or possibly lost it?) and since then I have kind of forgotten about it.
Which leads me to my next point... my stay at the hospital literally destroyed my lips! So our first trip with baby was to the drugstore and the first thing in my cart was this balm. If your not familiar with Reve De Meil its a thick almost gritty balm ... it's a unique texture I'm not going to lie, but when healing really sore cracked lips Reve De Meil is my first choice.
Smashbox Full Exposure Mascara
Over the past couple of years I have been on a drugstore mascara kick. Sure I stopped to try Benefit's Roller Lash along the way, but since then I have not strayed, until now. Years and years ago (before blogging times) Smashbox's Full Exposure was my go to mascara. If your into long lashes with tons of volume you need to check this out. However be weary because the big mascara wand takes some getting use to.
A mascara, lip balm, facial spray and a miracle "face lift" cream... can you tell I've been home all month? Jokes aside this months favourites might be little on the boring side from first glance, but all these products are truly must haves for me. Dare I say back to basics has never felt to beautiful!
