January Favourites

Since the month is almost over now and I wasn't sure what to blog about today I decided to put up my January favourites. Some months I don't really seem to have favourites or anything that I have in particular been enjoying over other things but this month I have been really loving a few of the new things I have got recently. 

MAC MSF in Soft and Gentle // Angel by Theirry Mugler perfume // EOS lipbalm in Blueberry // Babylips lip balm in Quenced // Nailene nail polish remover // Dolce and Gabbana Light Blue hand and body lotion // Bic Miss Soleil razors

What have been your favourites so far this month?

NOTD: Andrea Fulerton 'Joanna'

Joanna is really pretty deep pink colour with an overall glittery finish to it. However, in certain lights the polish has a range of colours to it making it ones of the prettiest polishes I own. 

You can buy this polish at Superdrug for £3.99

£5 Revlon lip products

I thought since Revlon are still doing their £5 offer in Superdrug and Boots I would take advantage and buy a couple of their lip products that I have been wanting to try. I've used their colourburst lip glosses before and really like them, so I grabbed a couple more of those (016/Bordeaux and 008/Peony) along with one of their Just Bitten balm stains (020/lovesick) along with one of their Just Bitten lip stain and balms (Beloved/Adoration). I've been wanting to try both of these products but so far hadn't gotten around to it and thought now would be the perfect time!

Have you taken advantage of this offer too?

The Body Shop's smooth & renew facial loofah pads

I'm not a fan of using most exfoliators on my face because I'm scared to get the little bits in my eyes, so when I saw these little exfoliating pads from The Body Shop, which are specifically made to use on your face, I thought they would be perfect! 

They remind me of dried noodles!

One side of the pad is incredibly rough and too scratchy to use on your face but the other side is softer and doesn't feel nearly as rough on the skin. I've been using them with my normal face wash (Garnier pure active) and they lather up with it really well. They expand a little in size the first time you wet them and are a nice size to use on your face.

You get three 'loofahs' for £4 and if you would like to read more about them on the Body Shop's website you can do so by clicking here.

Have you tried these exfoliating pads? What did you think?
Do you have any other favourites I should check out?

Nailene nail polisher remover

I had heard that this nailene nail polish remover was really good and so was tempted to try it myself but my experience in the past with these kind of removers, where you stick your finger into the sponge and wiggle it around, has never really been good. That on top of that fact that I feel like these are quiet pricey at around £7, I didn't end up buying it. I then received this as a gift which sparked my interest in it all over again.

I am someone who really doesn't like taking my nail polish off. I also have a weird finger nail where nail polish gets stuck under my skin around the nail and it's really hard (and hurts) to rub at it to try and get it off. So, it came the time to take off the nail polish I was wearing and I decided to use this and  see how it worked. 

I can't begin to tell you how impressed I am with it or how well this actually works! It took off all my nail polish (even on my stubborn finger nail) within a few seconds. It didn't even leave any tiny bits or streaks behing on my nail. The polish was completely gone. 

I expected the inside to be sponge like all the other versions I have tried but instead its a hard plastic with bristles that you rub your nail against. It's quick and easy and if you hate taking your nail polish off like me, I really recommend to try this out. I love it!

This was £7 and I believe it was from Tesco
