Hello all! Three weeks in and I have been posting every Sunday, if you have been here since last year you know what an accomplishment that is! For todays post, an introduction into February, I wanted to share some of my favourite products during the month of January. I have tried to include a mixture of beauty, skin, nails, books and other random things so I hope you find this useful. I have also put the link on every heading so feel free to click on that if you would like to shop the product.
Just a disclaimer: quite a few of these products I got as presents from Christmas so you might hear that line a lot. Another disclaimer: as I am from Australia, I will link the websites but I have no guarantee that you can order them if you are from over seas.
Five fruits super rich smoothing body cream…
I am someone who constantly forgets to moisturise and then when I do I have the feeling of it being sticky and then having to put clothes on top.
I got this delicious cream for Christmas and it soaks into the skin immediately. It also smells absolutely amazing with the five fruits being orange oil, green fig, jungle pomelo essence, peppermint oil & shea butter.
It also comes in such a large tub that despite the fact I have had it since Christmas, I have barely made a dent. This is definitely a brand I will be returning to.
Frog Prince Cream Blush & Lip Tint
I had my eyes on these products for a while after they became viral earlier last year. These beautifully packaged products being green but when you put them on your cheeks or lips they turn a gorgeous shade of pink… science.
The lip tint is the perfect shade that will go with any outfit and you can wear without feeling like you have over done the makeup. The same goes for the cheek tint, a subtle colour that blends easily on the skin and both last a while but also easy to re-apply.
I never ever have nice nails. And if I do you can almost guarantee they will be gone as soon as I take the polish off. But for some reason when I wear the nail polish I never take it off so my nails never go bad!
This pretty pink colour goes with so many things and is part of their new formula ‘Infinite Shine 2′.
I feel that the only downfall to this product is that the layers are quite thin. This can be a good and back thing but the bad part about it is that usually when I use this I may have to do up to three layers so that you get the smooth finish and don’t have the streaks. Other than that I love it.
Not only would I recommend this specific shade but i will definitely be going back to check out some of the other colours they have to offer.
Before using this mascara I had heard very mixed reviews about it being to clumpy etc. I will say it is quite a thick mascara but I usually brush out the clumps with a special toothbrush i use just for brushing out mascara clumps and I find it fine (don’t diss it till you try it).
The shape of the applicator makes it very easy to put as close to the eye as possible in order to make your eyelashes look even longer.
I am aware that the size I got is only a sample and at first I was annoyed but I have to say, I prefer it. Not only does it look really cute, it is lasting me a long time and makes it the perfect size to chuck in an already-overflowing makeup bag when travelling.
For curly and wavy hair. Controls frizz. Delivers optimal hold. Perfect for all climates
Not many really know the full extent of my curly hair, and neither did I till these holidays when I wasn’t brushing it out for forcing it flat with a straightener. My hair isn’t ringlets or anything but it definitely shortens a couple inches when going from straight to curly. The annoying thing about curly hair is that once it is dry you cannot really brush it out and this can mean it looks knotty or frizzy all the time.
Without sounding like an infomercial – this product delivers all it is hyped up to be. After washing my hair I dry it with a towel, scrunching it up towards my head to ‘encourage’ the curls (I don’t know I heard someone say that once and it seems to work for me). Next I pump a couple squirts of the cream into my finger tips, flip my hair upside down and do the same scrunching motion but with the cream in my hands. This helps to ‘encourage’ the curls as well as mixing in the cream. If you simply rub in through your hair normally that can straighten it or make it heavy.
Whenever I use this product I feel like each curl is defined and styled… lets just say it definitely doesn’t feel that way when I don’t us it.
That is all for now, just a few special products that made the final cut! I hope you enjoyed this blog post and are having a wonderful welcome into February.
