January favourites | 2013

Hello again! As it is already the first of February (can you believe it?) I figured now would be a good time to write down my favourite products from the previous month. As Christmas left me completely broke I haven't been buying or trying many new products but there have been a few that have stood out to me over the past month, so here are January favourites! (I apologise in advance for the terrible lighting in the pictures) 

Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream - £7.99 (May vary) I wouldn't be exaggerating when I say that I think I wore this every single day of January. It is absolutely perfect in every way! It is the first BB Cream I have ever used and I definitely know I won't be returning to foundation any time soon. I love how light and natural it looks on my face, and it covers up blemishes without looking 'caked on' The fact that it is oil free and contains SPF 30 is an added bonus! It's fair to say that this is one of the best products I have ever used and I will certainly be repurchasing it in the near future! 

Extracts Fairtrade Cocoa Butter Sugar Scrub - £7.95. As a big fan on Soap and Glory and someone who uses their sugar scrubs on a regular basis, I was skeptical at first about using this, especially since the price is very similar to soap and glory's.  However I was so pleasantly surprised and I have thoroughly enjoyed using this! It smells so delicious, good enough to eat, and I love how soft it leaves my skin! It has also lasted a very long time and you definitely get your moneys worth! I also love the fact that it is fairtrade! All in all, a very lovely sugar scrub! 

Cross earrings (Primark) - £1.50 for pack of two. I have been wearing these little earrings so much this month! I don't know what it is about them that I like so much, they just seem to go with every outfit and I love how cheap they were! 

TRESemme Extra Hold Hairspray - £4.69. I don't seem to use Hairspray that often, simply because I have a tendency to forget in the morning! But I have been really enjoying giving my hair a little spray of this before heading out the door. I walk to school everyday and since I live relatively far from school my hair tends to fall out of place due to the wind, rain etc. Using this has really made a difference and my curly hair looks much less frizzy!

Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Frizz Remedy - £4.99. I could not imagine life without this right now. I genuinely don't know how I managed before i bought this. For those of you with curly hair, I'm sure you're all aware of how frizzy your hair can get and how difficult it is to manage this frizz. This little beauty however, banishes all the frizz, leaving your hair so silky and lovely! I would definitely recommend this wonderful little product! 

Burt's Bees Milk and Honey Body Lotion - £7.99 (for a larger tube) Ahhhhh I could spend a whole day smelling this wonderful body lotion and call it a day well spent! This smells beautiful I seriously can't get enough of it! It is so lovely and sweet, yet not too sickly, it's just perfect. So perfect. asdfghjkl If you ever have the pleasure of smelling this product, you are one lucky person because it is like heaven in a bottle. Oh, and it leaves your skin smooth too. 

Now time for a couple of songs I have been loving this month! 

Taylor Swift- Stay Stay Stay. I have been really enjoying her new album, this one in particular stood out to me! It's so happy :')

Keri Hilson- Pretty Girl Rock. Do any of you guys remember this song?? I used to love it and I have just rediscovered it! It brings back a lot of memories!

So I hope you all had a lovely January and I hope February is a wonderful month for you too! Thankyou so much for reading this! And as always, please feel free to comment below suggestions of how you think I could improve blogging!!!
Love Caitlin
