January Favorites 2014

I can’t believe January is gone! Where did the time go? Okay, so I am not really that sad to see January go. I am excited for warmer months and no more talk of the polar vortex. I am freezing my bum off and the weather is never leave your bed/house weather. With that being said I guess it’s time for my monthly favorites post. I hope you all enjoy!

Let’s talk skin care first shall we.

I am not sure what happened this month but I used quite a few skin care products that have really surprised me. Let’s start by talking about cleansers. As you can see I have three that I rotated through this past month. Partially because I ran out of my Michael Todd Organic honey and oat cleanser. I went back to my Philosophy Purity cleanser. I have tried to use my Neutrogena pink grapefruit cleanser a lot less (one a day) than what I had been using it (twice a day). I want to start to lock down on a skin care routine that uses less products and is relatively affordable, since I will be going to Grad school and money will be tight for a year or so.

I want to talk about my two favorite moisturizer that I just discovered this past month. They are both samples that I just wanted to get rid off, but ended up being the best thing I could try for my skin. Both of these are very moisturizing and leave your skin feeling soft and amazing. I use the Clinique Moisture surge during the day since it is a lot lighter on the skin and I use the Burts Bees Intense Hydration at night because that is very thick. Overall I have been loving the addition of these two products onto my skin care routine.

This month my hair has been a bit dry and blah. I always try to do a deep conditioner when I feel like my hair is having a bad couple of days. I am a huge fan of Aussie 3 minute miracle deep conditioner. I apply this twice a week and my hair feels softer and shiny. A huge plus when you are dealing with really cold temperatures.

For makeup this month I tried to keep things simple mainly because my eczema and my dry patches weren’t cooperating with this cold weather. Sometimes even the best moisturizer can’t get rid of a stubborn dry patch brought on by my eczema *sigh*. I have been loving this Covergirl Outlast foundation paired with my Maybelline Dark circle eraser concealer. They provided the most natural look without skimping on the coverage. I finish the skin off with a little bit of this Tarte blush in Achiote and I’m good to go.

I hope everyone had a great January and that you are all excited for February!
See you on Monday!
