BEAUTY REVIEW: WHAT GOT ME THROUGH JANUARY

SO I MEANT TO DO THIS POST AT THE END OF LAST MONTH BUT I HAVE HAD A LOT ON MY MIND AT THE MOMENT SO MY BLOG SORT OF GOT A BIT NEGLECTED!
BUT ANYWAY YEAH, HOW SHIT IS JANUARY? HORRIBLE MONTH IF YOU ASK ME I FIND IT REALLY DEPRESSING AND I AM GLAD ITS OVER (ANYONE ELSE FEEL THIS WAY?)

I TEND TO BUY A LOT OF PRODUCTS, SO I'M HOPING TO PUT MY ADDICTION TO GOOD USE AND THERE WILL BE PLENTY OF REVIEWS COMING UP. TODAY I THOUGHT I WOULD SHARE WITH YOU MY TOP 5 THAT KEPT ME HAPPY THROUGH LAST MONTH. I HAVE ADDED LINKS ON THE PRODUCT NAME AND TRIED TO FIND SOME SLIGHTLY CHEAPER PRICES.



XEN-TAN DARK LOTION ABSOLUTE LUXE: THIS IS THE DARKEST ONE XEN-TAN HAVE DONE I THINK, ALTHOUGH I DON'T FIND IT TO BE MUCH DARKER THAN THE ORIGINAL DARK LOTION. BUT THE FORMULA IS SO MUCH BETTER, IT DRIES QUICKER AND ONCE DRY AFTER A FEW HOURS DOESN'T SMELL AT ALL I FIND. IT IS USUALLY £39.99 BUT I GOT IT ON SALE FOR £27 ON THE XEN-TAN WEBSITE. IF ITS NOT ON SALE ANYMORE IT CAN BE FOUND FOR CHEAPER ON EBAY.

CLINIQUE PORE REFINING SOLUTIONS INSTANT PERFECTOR RRP £18: I WOULD BEST DESCRIBE THIS AS POLY-FILLER FOR YOUR FACE! MY SKIN IS NOT THE BEST AND IF I DON'T PREP IT FIRST THERE IS NO CHANCE MY MAKE-UP WILL MAKE IT PAST LUNCH. I USE THIS AFTER MOISTURISING, APPLYING SPARINGLY ON MY CHIN AND T-ZONE, IT CREATES A SMOOTH CANVAS AND SORT OF BLURS OUT PORES, IMPERFECTIONS, LINES AND OTHER NASTIES AND ALSO WORKS TO MINIMIZE OILY SKIN!
CLINIQUE PORE REFINING SOLUTIONS CORRECTING SERUM RRP £36: I GOT THIS FOR CHRISTMAS AND HAVE BEEN USING IS FOR JUST OVER A MONTH. MORNING AND NIGHT BEFORE MOISTURISER. I ONLY USE IT ON MY CHIN AND JAW LINE AS THAT IS THE AREA OF MY FACE I'M TRYING TO SORT OUT! (BEING 24 AND GETTING TEENAGE BREAKOUTS IS SO NOT COOL) I DEFINITELY FEEL LIKE ITS MAKING A DIFFERENCE, MY SKIN TONE IS LOOKING BETTER, IT SEEMS SO MUCH BRIGHTER AND EVEN, A FEW MARKS AND LITTLE SCARS ARE STARTING TO FADE TOO.

GARNIER SKIN NATURALS BODY TONIC SUGAR SCRUB: THIS IS THE ONLY EXFOLIATOR I'LL EVER USE. IF IM XEN-TANNED UP I'LL USE IT EVERYDAY IN THE SHOWER GENTLY AS IT MAKES SURE MY TAN FADES EVENLY AND I DON'T HAVE TO HAVE A WEEKLY 'MEGA SCRUB'. IT WORKS AMAZING AT KEEPING LEGS NICE AND SMOOTH TOO. A LITTLE GOES A LONG WAY AND IT ABSOLUTELY DOES WHAT IT SAYS ON THE BOTTLE, ITS VERY SCRUBBY (KNOW WHAT I MEAN!?) ITS ABOUT £7 IN BOOTS AND SUPERDRUG BUT WATCH OUT FOR WHEN ITS ON OFFER, I USUALLY STOCK UP.

TEAPIGS PEPPERMINT LEAVES £4.50: I LOVE PEPPERMINT TEA, MUST DRINK ABOUT 5 CUPS A DAY! TEAPIGS TEA IS THE BEST ONE I'VE HAD, I FIND SOME OTHER BRANDS TASTE LIKE MOUTHWASH BUT THIS ONE IS LOVELY AND FRESH TASTING WITH A BIT OF A ZING! 


IF ANYONE WANTS TO SEE A MORE DETAILED REVIEW OF ANY OF THE BEAUTY PRODUCTS LET ME KNOW.
