January Beauty Favorites

With the first month of the year coming to a close, I can’t seem to think of a better way to rap it up than by writing about what I have been loving to start this new year.

I try different products to tell you what I love, so you get the scoop on what’s the real deal, and worth investing your hard-earned money into!

Some things are oldies but goodies, and others are new products that you might not have seen before.

Let’s jump right into it! Here are 7 things that I have been loving for January:

Pixi Rose Tonic

This Pixi Rose Tonic is said to be “naturally soothing and rich in skin-loving nutrients, to tone, balance pH, minimize redness and calm skin. Rehydrates, replenishes, and refreshes. A nourishing & gentle alcohol-free toner for all types, including very sensitive”. I picked up this up on a wim and the benefits completely transformed my skin. It has helped to sooth my redness in my nose and cheeks, tighten and smooth my pores, and give my skin a much healthier appearance.

Pixi Rose Oil Blend

After picking up the Pixi Rose Tonic and loving the benefits, I decided to grab this Rose Oil Blend to go along with it. It is “infused with a powerful complex of youth-preserving oils to help improve skin’s elasticity and glow. Sweet almond, rosehip, jojoba, pomegranate seed, and rose geranium oils nourish the complexion, leaving it comforted & smooth to the touch”. I add 2-3 drops of this to my moisturizer every night before bed, and in the morning my skin feels nourished and has a healthy glow to it.

Nars Soft Matte Concealer

I bought this concealer after hearing such great things about it. It is a cream concealer that provides a “solid, high-coverage, matte-finish concealer that blurs away imperfections in the most natural way possible”, and I couldn’t agree more with that description. It is by far the best concealer I have ever used. I apply it with a damp Beauty Blender to my under-eye area and it stays all day, and never creases! A little goes a long way so one pot of this will last you a long time.

Stress Relief Candle by Bath & Body Works

This scent will forever be my favorite from Bath & Body Works. The eucalyptus and spearmint creates such a calming blend and is able to fill up a whole room. The 3 Wick candle is said to last 25-45 hours. I also use the body wash and lotion in this scent.

GlamGlow FLASHMUD Brightening Treatment

I received this as an unexpected Christmas present last year and after using it, I wish I had tried it sooner! It is by far the best mud mask I have ever used. “FLASHMUD is a multi-sensorial quick results brightening treatment. Powerful and innovative multi-brightening complexes help to create the brightest, lightest, and luminous, perfect skin. FLASHMUD is blended with salicylic acid, lactic acid, and vitamin C for sexy, bright skin. It delivers natural betulin, betulinic acid, and ellagic acid to create an improved color balanced skin tone”. I think the description speaks for itself, and the science behind this mask is incredible. My skin looks rejuvenated and bright after using this mask. Not to mention the smell is incredible and makes this mask even more fun to use.

Huda Beauty Emerald Obsessions Eyeshadow Palette

As a green-eyed-girl, I am always looking for different eyeshadow palettes to make my eyes POP! I stumbled across this Emerald Obsessions Palette at Sephora and knew I needed it in my collection. It’s unlike any other palettes I own with its very pigmented all green colors. I especially love all the cool tones which makes it unique. If you’re looking for some fun new colors the entire Obsessions Collection is the way to go.

Amika The Wizard Detangling Primer

I got this from my hairstylist, who also happens to be my boyfriend’s sister, and she recommended it to me. It is “a nutrient-packed, multi-benefit hair primer that detangles, reduces blow dry time, provides heat protection, and enhances hair health”. This Amika Detangling hair primer does exactly that! It keeps my hair feeling soft and healthy after blowdrying, and the smell is almost addictive. I use this everyday and can see and feel the difference in my hair.
