Today it’s the last day of the first month of twenty seventeen. It went by pretty quickly and I personally didn’t mind at all. January has been another very busy and hectic month and I can’t wait for my life to get a little more calm again. So, throughout January I have tried more products that ever. I don’t really know how it happened, but it did. Today I’m going to show you my top favourites of this month. If you’re interested in finding out which products I’m talking about, make sure you continue reading!
Let’s start off with two Clinique favourites. At the start of the year I decided I needed a new primer. I ended up buying the Clinique Pore Refining Solution because it seemed like a great product for my skin type and I ended up falling in love with it. It does come in an awfully small tube and I do think that’s a big downside to this product, but when it comes to the results I just can’t say anything but: I love it!
Another Clinique product I’ve fallen in love with throughout the month of January is the Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturising Gel. I recently wrote a very positive review on it and I obviously still love it. This moisturiser has really made a difference for my skin. My skin feels softer, healthier and just like new. It’s incredible.
Aside from Clinique I’ve also fallen more in love with Dior this month. I actually have three Dior favourites to share with you guys. Let’s start off with the palette. For Christmas my boyfriend gifted me this 5 colours eyeshadow palette by Dior and it’s just absolutely stunning. The colours in here are amazing, combined they create the most perfect look ever and the quality is insane. It’s the best eyeshadow palette I own.
Another Dior product I’ve discovered this month is the Diorskin Star Concealer. I already loved the Diorskin Star foundation which is why I was so interested in giving the concealer a go. This is one of the best concealers I’ve ever tried. The texture is amazing, it has great coverage and it feels so weightless on the skin. I love it!
The last Dior favourite for this month is their highlighter. It’s definitely the most expensive highlighter I own and at first I wasn’t sure whether or not I should spend that amount of money on it but I ended up doing it and I haven’t regretted it even a little bit. This Dior Nude Air Luminizer just adds the most stunning glow to the face. It’s the most luxurious and stunning looking highlighter in the world and I’m really proud to have it in my collection.
Next up is the Nars And God Created The Women eyeshadow palette. I got this from my mom for Christmas and it’s amazing. Every look I create using this comes out gorgeous (if I can say so myself). The quality of these shadows is just out of this world. The shadows are so pigmented and so intense. I absolutely love it!
I’ve also really been loving my new brow product, the IT Cosmetics Brow Power. It’s a ‘universal’ eyebrow pencil with a very unique tip. I’ve been using it a ton lately and I’ve been loving the way my brows have been looking the past few weeks. It’s a very simple and easy product to work with and it makes my brows look naturally beautiful
I’ve also been loving the Monuskin Repair Balm. This came in one of my past LF Beauty Boxes and I only now discovered it. I apply it at night and when I wake up my skin is in a better condition than it has ever been. This is only a little mini size but I’m pretty sure there is going to be a bigger size in my collection in the near future.
Aside from makeup and skincare, I also discovered a new favourite shower gel, a favourite body cream and a new shampoo this month. I don’t buy a lot of those types of products so it’s quite unique that I discovered favourites in all three departments. Anyway, here we go.
My favourite shower gel of the month is actually quite surprising. It’s this red berry shower gel by Jumbo. Jumbo is one of the larger grocery stores in the Netherlands and apparently they know how to do shower gel. I bought it when I walked into the store and saw that it was on sale for only a Euro. I didn’t expect much from it but it has been my most used shower gel ever since I got it. It’s definitely a surprising favourite but that does’t make it any less exciting.
My favourite body cream of the month has been this Rituals Ritual of Karma body cream. I bought this on sale because I thought it smelled good and it looked very pretty but I ended up falling in love with it even more than I initially expected. The texture of this body cream is just so nice and it really does hydrate my skin. It’s definitely my favourite body cream out of all my Rituals body creams and if you ever find it somewhere, I highly recommend getting it.
My last favourite of the month is this Aussie Daily Clean Shampoo. Even though I still really love that Elvive Extraordinary Clay shampoo, I really wanted to try a new shampoo. I ended up going for this one by Aussie because it was on sale and it looked good and I ended up falling in love with it. This shampoo makes my hair feel very clean and fresh and it doesn’t weigh my hair down. It’s one of the better shampoo’s I’ve tried in ages so I’m really glad I decided to give it a go!
And that basically concludes today’s post. I hope you enjoyed reading it and be sure to let me know which products you have been loving throughout the month of January!
