Monthly Favorites – January

I have been wanting to post this early this week but it got side swept.

But here it is.

These are my favorite things last January, 2015. I guess you can say all of these are beauty related. hahahaha. And most of them are Korean products. These are the Korean products that I love and have been using non stop this month!

IMG_4091Let’s start with my favorite body wash. I went thru the Bath & Body Works phase, the Victoria Secret phase, the Lush phase, etc. For a time I loved them. But when I discovered these, it changed my bath experience.

Avalon Organics Bath & Shower Gel. Lemon, Lavender & Rosemary

IMG_4095It is totally a different experience. First, because the smell isn’t perfumy. So, it doesn’t clash with your cologne or your perfume. And second, you stay fresh and smell fresh the whole day. You don’t feel sweaty, sticky and icky at the end of the day. There’s a certain ingredient in these products that just makes you feel clean.

Love them! I’m using Lavender now.

Almond Glow. Almond Skin Lotion

IMG_4098I super love this! I used this since December and I just love it. A lot of my friends asked me why my skin glows. It’s because of this!

I have been loving body oil lately. Or Facial oil. They’re the best!

After applying this the scent of almond comes out strong but it eventually fades after a few minutes.

Alba Botanica Hawaiian 3-in-1 Clean Towelettes

IMG_4100Normally I used the Neutrogena Cleansing Towelettes but when I saw this I decided to pick it up just to try. This is what I have been using the whole month of January and until now.

I also love the Neutrogena Cleansing Towelettes but this is also a good alternative.

Tony Moly Prestige Snail Lip Treatment

IMG_4130My lips have been so chapped lately. It’s because of the weather. This is what I am using since last month and I kinda like it. No smell, no taste and it really works.

I use them at night before I sleep and also before I put on my make up.

Ètude House Play Pencil 101

IMG_4132I am crazy about this. That’s all I can say. I bought mostly all colors and I love it all!

Tony Moly Auto Lip Liner. 01, 03 & 04

IMG_4137The last time I used this I was actually stopped randomly and asked what lipstick I am wearing. Twice. That’s how good this is.

This is suppose to be a lip liner but I use it as a lipstick.

Ètude House Water Color Blusher. No.1 Pink, No.2 Coral & No.3 Apricot

IMG_4142This is the blusher I have been using the whole month of January and up to now. Super love this!

This reminds me of Perricone MD No Blush blush. Very similar. I love the way it makes my skin glow and it might come out bright but when you apply it it fades and it looks very light.

At first I just bought 1 shade but when I tried it and liked it I went back and bought all the shades! That’s how much I love it.

Body Shop Honey Mania Eau de Toilette

IMG_4145This is what I have been wearing everyday. Love it!

I bought this mid last year but I started using this just recently and I love it. Good to use for cold months. This is my new favorite winter scent.

Tarte Concealer blending sponge IMG_4148I ordered this online together with my Tarte make up brushes. I used it right away when it arrived and I have been using it everyday!

This is just the right size to use when you’re blending your concealer around your eyes. It fits perfectly in the hard to reach areas within your eyes.  And I like the way that it looks so chic among all the make up sponges.

Love this!

Ètude House Correct & Care CC Cream. 8 in 1 multi function. SPF 30

IMG_4151I have been using this non stop also. I use this after I put my sunscreen and before I use my BB cream.

I like it cause it acts as primer also aside from correcting your skin tone. This has spf but to be sure I also use sunscreen.

Tony Moly Intense Care Snail Foam Cleansing

IMG_4154The snail mania that is very popular now in Korea & Japan has caught me. My skin loves it.

In Japan snail facial is very popular now. They actually put live snail to crawl on your face. There is an ingredient in the slimy saliva of snails that is very good for the skin. It makes it glowy and youthful looking.

Apparently this method has been use in Ancient Greece to the middle ages.

Ètude House Precious Mineral BB Cream. Bright fit & light fit

IMG_4155I love Ètude House’ BB creams. They have a lot and I can’t choose which one I like. All of them are good.

These 2 has been my go to bb cream since last month. I alternate these two together with the rest of Ètude House’ BB cream that I bought. I think I have 4 of their BB creams and these 2 are the ones I have been using lately. I like it cause it’s full coverage and I don’t need to put foundation anymore and it makes my skin look dewy.

Tom Ford Sunglasses

IMG_4159This has been my go to sunglasses since I bought it last month. Love it.

It’s so chic!

And lastly, Haviannas half strap flip flops

CollageSince Schumi devoured my flip flops sometime in December I was forced to buy a new one.

I love this new style. Look how slim it is! I liked it so much that I also bought Claudia a pair in different color.

So, there you go! My favorite things this month that I have been loving.
