January Favourites

Hi Guys,

I haven't got many favourites this month as I mainly didn't try much out. The past week however I've found some product's I'm really loving, but as I've not been trying them out for very long it didn't feel right to include them just yet. 
After a bit of an accident at the start of the year, I didn't really feel like putting on my usual load of make up, I just wanted something really quick and mainly spent most days with no make up on at all.
So I mainly got a bit more into quick and easy skin care this month instead.
Lush Rose Jam Ultrabland
Firstly the little pink strange bar is in fact my shampoo! Its the Rose Jam Shampoo Bar from Lush. I have been using this since about the middle of December and its still going! This thing lasts for ages, it smells like my favourite Rose Jam fragrance from Lush. Plus it is fantastic for travelling, just pop it in a little Lush tin and you're ready to go! I'd say Ive had about 35 washes from this and I can see me getting maybe another 8-10 out of it still! 

Ultrabland has become my new favourite cleanser to remove my make up, its so quick and removes everything! You can use it on your eyes and it will quickly break down mascara and remove it. I just rub a small maybe marble sized piece all over my face and spray with the Rose Toner Water, then remove with a dampened cotton wool pad. It leaves your skin feeling very moisturised too because of its balm texture. 
Nuxe Lush Bubblegum Illamasqua Semblance
The main make up I used this month came in the form of the Illamasqua Semblance Palette. Which does hardly look used, but believe me it has been! Which is exactly one of the reasons I love Illamasqua, it is so pigmented you need the tiniest bit, so their products last for ages! I have mainly been using the shadows and occasionally the brow cake when Ive left mine in my bag! I have a little review on it HERE

My new favourite lip savour duo has to be the Lush Bubblegum Lip Scrub and the Nuxe Balm Reve De Meil. Firstly the both taste amazing, bubblegum and well the Nuxe one tastes like chocolate orange! I get dry lips all year round, but more so in the winter, but by popping these on before bed, Ive noticed a huge difference. Lipstick has been going on so much better, now theres a better surface and that always helps with the dark winter berry shades! 
Lastly a bit of a non beauty favourite, The Humming Bird Bakery Cake Days Book, I love the Hummingbird Bakery and all of their books, I won quite a collection now! But I have been really into baking recently and this is the book, Ive been turning to! I think I may even have to share quite a few recipes on here very soon, they're just too good not to! 

January may of been a bit of a horrible month, it usually is, but now its February which I just cant believe! I cant wait to share with you m few favourites for this month too!
