december favourites

Monday, December 31, 2012

It's the end of December, which means it's time for another monthly favourites! Here I am, in my pyjamas with my hair in a little top knot, typing my little fingers off trying to get this post finally finished so I have time to get ready for tonight. I always seem to try less products during December, because I spend the majority of my money on other people's presents rather than on myself like almost every other month! So, without further ado, here are my December favourites! :)

Topshop Lips in Innocent. I bought this during the middle of this month as a little 'pick me up' and I've been wanting to try Topshop makeup for a while. I'm slowly become quite a huge fan, building up my own little collection. They are similar quality to MAC and they are a really good dupe, costing about £5 cheaper. The pigmentation of these lipsticks is very good, and it is a lovely colour. It's like a pinky coral colour, and if you don't suit darker lip colours (like me!) I would really recommend trying this. 

Models Own Nail Polish in Hedonist. I am a huge nail polish junkie. My mum even bought me 2 nail polish racks for Christmas because my wardrobes were overfilling with bottles! This is from the Hedkandi range and it's a bright, neon red with an orange undertone which makes your fingers really stand out. I only ever use 1 coat of this because it's very thick and it gives a really full colour in just 1 coat. It drys matte, so if you don't like matte colours on your nails you could cover it with a topcoat.

Lush Bubblegum Lip Scrub. I absolutely adore this. I am completely and utterly obsessed. It's a little cute pot of bright pink sugar-like grains which you rub onto your lips and lick off. It gets off all of the dead skin on your lips ready to apply lip balm. I know, it sounds gross because in actual fact you practically licking off dead skin... Yuck. I must admit, the first time I bought this was for two very shallow reasons; the colour (who doesn't love a little pot of bright pink goodness?) and the smell. It smells like heaven! You should probably know by now that I'm absolutely terrible at describing scents, but this smells like bubblegum which you get at a fairground as soon as you open the lid. It works wonders on my lips and leaves them very smooth and smelling (and tasting) lovely.

Simple Hydrating Light Moisturiser. This is a complete God send in the winter months, where my skin gets very very dry and horrible. I use this every morning and night after I cleanse and tone my face, and it leaves my skin feeling very fresh, light, and nicer in general. It's so cheap and I prefer this to some of the dearer brands because it's such good quality for the price.

Lush Snow Fairy Shower Gel. I honestly don't think that I can rave about this product enough. It smells SO nice, like cupcakes, pear drops, candyfloss and marshmellows all thrown in one. I bought two 500g bottles of these last year because LUSH only sell them over the Christmas period. These will last me for ages, and I use this for my shower gel and occasionally as shampoo. It lathers really well, smells amazing and you can smell if for days afterwards. I can't tell you how nice this smells, but next Christmas I think I'm going to get maybe 3 or 4 big bottles because this is my holy grail for shower gels!


Soap and Glory Peaches and Clean Cleanser. Again, I use this product everyday during my morning/night skincare routine. I don't really know what it smells of, although it says it is supposed to smell like peaches but I can't really seem to find that! It takes my makeup off very easily, and it has a little pump which I love because I can control very easily how much I am using. It's a good alternative to the Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish which I'm sure you've heard bloggers rave about for months and months, and it's a lot cheaper.

What are your December favourites?
