December Favourites

1         Soap & Glory Smoothie Star Body Buttercream £10.50 for 300ml here – Heaven!  This stuff smells divine!! If you love sickly sweet smells – think pancakes, syrup and milkshakes – you will LOVE this body butter!  The scent stays on your skin all day and the butter formula sinks into skin instantly leaving you hydrated not sticky.  Its not the cheapest moisturiser but the pot is huge and will last you a good long while even when applying every day.  An absolute must for dry winter skin

2         Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Concealer £6.99 here – I picked this up on a mad dash to Boots after running out of my beloved Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer and I am so glad I did!!  A total dupe for YSL Touche Eclat this is a really creamy, medium coverage concealer that is great on blemishes and fantastic under the eyes.  What a bargain and my new favourite.

3         Chantecaille Just Skin Tinted Moisturiser £57 for 50g here - Surprisingly  I have been opting for less coverage on my skin this winter which is totally out of the norm for me.  I’ve had good skin recently with no need for heavy products at all so a blob of this all over has been perfect.  I cannot praise Chantecaille’s Just Skin enough it is the best tinted moisturiser I have ever come across.  It seems to have a light coverage whilst still cancelling out any red patches and making my skin radiant and glowing.  I have almost ran out and I am so upset as this stuff is not cheap but I will 100% be repurchasing it on payday

4         Bliss High Intensity Hand Cream £14.72 for 125g here – I received this for Christmas with my Bliss Spa Gloves (review coming soon) and it’s the nicest smelling hand cream I have used in a long time!  Its very citrus’y and refreshing and the cream is super hydrating leaving my hands lovely and soft.  The only thing is this is quite a greasy one so you need some “hands free” after using to let it slowly sink in but it’s really lovely so is def a December Fave

5         Skin Art Nail Tattoos £5.99 for 60 stickers here – These were my saviour over the Christmas period, I was so busy I had no time for elaborate manicures so I quickly stuck a few stickers over a base colour and my nails looked fabulous!!! I have done a review of some of the range here if you want to see what they look like on and how you use them!  They also have a fantastic price point, great value for money

6         Bourjois 1 Second Gel Formula Nail Polish £5.99 here – My lovely friend bought me 2 colours from the Bourjois Gel Polish range and they are amazing!  The brush is thick, the polish is opaque after 1 coat and the consistency and finish is very gel like and shiny!  My fave colour has to be Blue Moonlight as it’s the darkest blue I own with just a slights metallic finish.  Its gorgeous

7         MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus Compact £20.50 for 15g here – I can’t get enough of this at the moment!  I’m not usually one for applying anything other than translucent powder but I have found that that the Studio Fix Powder really sets my foundation perfectly and gives just a slight colour enhancement to my skin.  It’s so natural looking and will leave you looking flawless.  It also doesn’t dry out my skin or wear off during the day.  This has become a staple in my makeup bag

8         Milkshake Conditioning Whipped Cream £12.15 for 200ml here – It’s not often that I fall in love with something from a beauty box subscription.  I usually like or dislike the samples but I often don’t ever repurchase the products again.  However, I don’t think I could live without this leave-in conditioner!  I have done a review of this here, but at the time of that review I didn't realise how much I actually love this product!  I only really noticed when I didn't use this for a few days and my hair just didn't feel the same, it felt dry and tangled and a little brittle.  It was only when I used this again that I realised this stuff hydrates my hair SO much!  It feels really soft and is very easy to run a brush through after using and it smells lovely! (I have a thing for smells in these favourites!!)  I said in my previous review I wouldn't repurchase this due to the price tag but I have now changed my mind and will be repurchasing this again and again because its super-duper and worth every penny!

So there are my favourite products from December 2012.. What were your favourites, I would love to know!?

  1. Great picks! I really want to try the Soap & glory body butter!

  2. I've been wanting to try the Mac Powder but scared it will break me out :/

    I've been meaning to go to a bills counter for a while to grab some samples as I've heard their products are really good.

    1. It doesn't break me out at all and I have quite sensitive skin! It's really light feeling :-)
