January Favourites

I think this is probably the first time I've ever managed to do one of these posts during the month I'm talking about, definitely improving. I thought I would share with you my favourite products that I've used in the month of January. I've been loving so many products this month that I found it so hard to narrow it down to just a handful, but these are the products that I'd probably say I've been reaching for most this month.

The first product I've chosen is probably my most used product at the moment, it is an absolute life saver. You've probably seen me post about it before its the: Batiste Dry Shampoo for Red Hair, I really don't know what I would do without this product. Having coloured hair it is not ideal to wash your hair too often so dry shampoo helps to keep my hair looking fresh & healthy as well as adding a hint of red to brighten up my roots. I also find that dry shampoo is perfect for adding abit of volume to your hair without having to backcomb or hairspray, so that's an added bonus. I have tried other brands of dry shampoo but always find myself going back to Batiste, and now especially that they have a colour range I don't think I will ever be buying another brand.

Another hair product I've absolutely been loving this month is the Herbal essences hello hydration deep nourishing intensive hair mask. As someone who dyes their hair alot my hair can often become frazzled and dry, so I use this at least once a week & it definitely makes such a difference. It leaves my hair feeling soft, looking shiny and smelling amazing (Hawaiian coconut & Orchid extracts.) I think one of the main reasons I like it is because of the smell, and the fact that its designed for dry/damaged hair so I know its doing what I need it to do for my hair. This is a firm favourite and will definitely be repurchase once its run out.

The next product I actually picked up a while ago because I read a review on Zoella's blog. It looked so good that i had to try it out, and boy am I glad I did. It's a skin cream which moisturises, but also helps reduce scar tissue and stretch marks. Annoyingly my skin is one of those skin types in which spots I get can often leave scars or marks. I used this product in the hope that it would help reduce the look of them, and it most definitely did that. It helps diminish the appearance of scars & leaves my skin feeling smooth. It is also incredibly long lasting, I've had it for ages and I'm not even half way through. I'll post a link to Zoe's review so you can look at the product in more detail. This product has become a key member of my skincare routine, I love it!

Zoe's Review:

I got so many Soap & Glory products for Christmas, I think its kind of a go to Christmas present brand, most of the items I received I've tried & loved before, apart from one. I've never thought of trying the Soap & Glory body sprays before but when I got the Soap & Glory Mist you madly body spray, I definitely changed my mind, I really like this spray as it reminds me of spring/summer and as its gradually getting warmer I think I will be using this alot more. The Description says its a: flirty floral fragrant body spray, I would definitely say I agree with that, it has a very girly scent but not in a sickly way. The packaging is really pretty as well, I don't know whether or not they do travel sized bottles, but I would definitely like one of them for on the go spritzes. The only negative thing I would say is that it can be abit overpowering if you spray too much, but other than that its a great body spray.

The last product I've been enjoying this month is a lipstick, you all know how much I love them. You may recognise it, it is the Mac Russian Red lipstick. I have already posted a more in depth review of this lipstick if you want to check that out for more information. I have been really enjoying red lipsticks over the recent couple of months, and for me this really is the ultimate Red. The colour is fantastic, so pigmented! It gives a really even coverage and is really long lasting. I'm so glad I payed the money for this lipstick as I know I'm going to get so much use out of it. 

So these are all the products I've been enjoying this much. What products have you been enjoying this month?
