January Favourites.

It's been quite some time since I've done a monthly favourites post. I wanted to started it up and make it a regular thing this time around. I looked back thinking I started them a year ago for a couple of months and then stopped. Nope, apparently I started them two years ago. Doesn't time fly? Madness.

I posted about this recently. I've been using it daily to apply fondation and a dot of powder if I don't have time for full makeup.

Lush - Helping Hands
I had this in a couple of gift boxes for my birthday and Christmas last year. I dismissed it because I didn't like the scent and I find it hard to use something if the smell isn't so great.
I recently found it and have been using it on my hands at night. It's a thick cream so only good before bed but it's really helped get rid of any super dry bits.

Lady Gaga - Fame EDP
I have been loving this since I bought it earlier in the month. It's not as heady as I expected from Gaga but I really love it. I find it to be an in between of 'day' and 'night' scents, not that I listen to those.

Colgate - MaxFresh Night
I picked this up on a whim in Sainsbury's as it was just £1 and a couple of pennies (along with the day version). Health and beauty is so expensive so for toothpaste I tend to buy whatever's on offer.
I'm so glad I picked this up. Excuse me for the perhaps TMI. Sometimes I find when having a heavy nights sleep after not sleeping properly for a few days, regular toothpaste doesn't cut it and I end up with a gross feeling in my mouth.
This is perfect for banishing that 'morning breath' your mouth is as fresh feeling as when you went to bed. It's truly amazing. I definitely recommend and I will definitely be using this permanently of a nighttime. 

M.A.C - Mineralize Skin Finish Natural - Light
I should probably do a full post on how much I love this considering I've recently hit pan on it.
I've taken to using this on my t-zone and my chin to get rid of any excess oil. I used to put all over my face but it looks more natural if you don't.

Since getting this in my Glossybox I've been constantly using it at work. The air conditioning dries my lips out like crazy. This is nice to have because the scent is very subtle so it doesn't bother me after a while.

O.P.I - Nail Envy
I'm once again attempting to grow my nails. I really hate them short. I've used this in the past and it does a fab job and helping my nails grow long and strong. It's just remembering to paint them every other day.

This colour is so perfect. Especially if you don't have much time. Bit of eyeshadow, some super black mascara and this applied to the lips - perfect!

Those are what I've been using most this month. I'm going to try and 'shop my stash' each month so I'm using things that maybe I tend to overlook.
