January Favourites

Hey! It's that time again: monthly favourites! I'm going to try and do these more often, I really enjoy reading them but I think I've only ever done three in total before!

Anyway, shh Charley and tell us what you've been loving.

1. Hask Argan Oil Healing Shine Treatment
I've been using this alongside the Deep Conditioning Treatment (mentioned here), and boy is this stuff good. Like most hair oils, it leaves the hair feeling super soft, shiny and healthy but this one also smells of oranges. And you know I love my hair to smell like fruit.

2. Lush Santa Lip Scrub - £5.50 in other flavours: Bubblegum, Mint Julips, Popcorn
As you can see, I have used this a fair bit! More of a 'winter favourite' than month-specific, I apply this a few times a days to avoid flaky, chapped lips. (Delightful image I know) It's also good for applying just before a matte lipsticks to avoid a patchy application.

3. The Bakewell Soap Co. Luscious Lips in Honey* - £2.95 here
Keeping to the lip theme, this is great to use after a lip scrub (if not applying lipstick) to keep lips in tip-top condition. I did think 'a lip balm is a lip balm' but the honey flavour of this tastes so good, and it's a lovely change from the fruity summery types.

4. Rimmel Scandal Eyes Waterproof Kohl Liner in nude - £3.99 here
Prior to the purchase of this, I liked to use a white eyeliner on my waterline to brighten up the eyes. This has basically the same purpose, but less obvious and harsh than the white.

5. Urban Decay 24/7 Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner in Perversion - £14 here
Another eyeliner I've been loving, and one of my Christmas presents, this has brought back my days of winged eyeliner. I've had so many liquid liners that disappear halfway through the day, leaving you with one eye winged, one eye not. Not ideal. This however, would genuinely live up to it's 24/7 claim I think. At the start of the month, I had a day trip to London which involved getting up at 6am and returning at 11.30pm. Guess who's winged eyeliner was still intact? Yep, this stuff is that good.

What have you been loving in January?
