January Favourites

It's near the end of another month so we all know what that means; some monthly favourites! I've been enjoying mostly old favourites this January, but a new skincare item has crept it's way into my stocks and I think it's here to stay...
The No7 cleansing balm has fast become one of my favourite cream cleansers, ever. Even though it says balm, this is most definitely a cream concoction, that feels light but super hydrating and leaves skin feeling clean and soft. It also takes off make up like a complete dream making me forget completely about Bioderma. Now that's something. I've spoken about it briefly here too.

A polish that has been rocking my boat for most of the month is Essie's 'Bikini So Teeny' - I think this shade works well year round and adds a certain spring feeling to rather grey British days. Obviously with most Essie polish, I adore the formulation, it goes on opaque in two coats and can last between four to six days sans chips. I've got one up for grabs in a giveaway here.

Something I could never be without is the Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Honey - it's a 'your lips but better' shade for me and I'm fond of mixing it with nude lipsticks that are sometimes a touch to brown.

The Caudalie Beauty Elixir has been a long time favourite but the last few months I'd been without. I picked this one up after a pretty bad month (read; Christmas eatings,) with my skin and it's definitely given my skin a much needed boost. I've used this as a toner and after applying makeup (especially if it looks like cake-town might be looming,) and it performs brilliantly. Recently, doing work on a laptop means a little midday boost from this spray, and it makes one heck of a difference.

Last but not least, the Trilogy Rosehip Oil Antioxidant+ is my favourite facial oil, ever. It hydrates, reduces scarring from blemishes and adds a certain amount of radiance too. What's more it lasts for ages as you only need a few small drops so you can rest assured you're getting your moneys worth.

So that's all my favourites from January, what are yours?
