As I haven't been out much this past month, due to the weather and having a lot of uni work on my plate, most of my favourites have come from trying to help my skin through the cold.
The next couple of things is due to being on Roaccutane (you can see my first post about it here) so my skin and lips are very dry. My lip combo is using the Lush Bubblegum Lip Scrub to get rid of the flakes on my lips. Although you can lick it off I don't like the taste so I wash it off with water, and then apply the Blistex Intensive Moisturiser (do excuse the exploded nail polish stains on my tube), which is my holy grail lip balm - it's simply amazing!! The combination of these 2 things together have kept my dry lips at bay.
The moisturiser I've recently got to help with my dry skin is La Roche Posay Effaclar H, which is a compensating soothing moisturiser, made for oily skin weakened by drying skin care products. My mums friend is a dermatologist and has given me a box of mini tubes, but as soon as I've got through those, I am 100% buying a full tube as it is a brilliant moisturiser and feels so good on my skin.
For make up, I've gone back into my collection and have been using the Maybelline 24hr colour tattoo in On and on bronze. Everyday I've had uni this month I've seemed to be in a rush to get ready as it's too cold to get out of bed, so I have been quickly sweeping this over my lids and applying eyeliner and I have a simple day look to last through uni. It doesn't crease and is long lasting which is just what I need.
The blush I've been using pretty much every day this January is the Revlon Photoready Cream Blush in Coral Reef, as just like the colour tattoo, I quickly blend it into my cheeks and have a pinch of colour in no time at all!
Have you had any favourites this month?
