JANUARY FAVOURITES

4 February 2016

First week of uni has arrived and things went a little bit... hectic. I am banned from saying the word 'busy' as a reminder that all things take time to do and there is no "too busy" to do something. On today's post I will be sharing my January favourites though the 2015 faves may have to take a little more time on that.

BRAVURA LONDON GLYCOLIC ACID CHEMICAL EXFOLIATOR | £9.59

I have tried a chemical exfoliator to be rid of my acne scars and this worked in a few uses! Really affordable and I actually purchased along with its fan brush and the total was only about 12! I was always afraid to try any skincare products that has the words "chemical exfoliator" in it because an experience has led me to really red scarring the next day so.. this is a wonderful chemical exfoliator, I use this every 2-3 days after my evening skincare routine and I keep on adding every minute for about 10 minutes and then washed off. My skin has significantly become brighter and less dull!


MAC PRO LONGWEAR SPF10 FOUNDATION in NC37 | £25.50

This foundation deserves a spot on my favourites list as it's just the foundation I've been reaching out to the past month ever since my rediscovery of it and the coverage is just perfect! If you've never tried MAC foundations before this is one I would recommend to everyone, they have a ton of shades available for every skintone and the coverage is really medium to full and long-lasting, not to mention that it includes a good SPF of 10!

BENEFIT THEY'RE REAL MASCARA TINTED PRIMER | £18.50

I got this in my Birchbox and personally I find it more like a mascara itself and even though it's not waterproof I do want to give this a shoutout. I top it off with another waterproof mascara and my eyelashes are really more volumised (even before the mascara) and for some people this could just be another mascara. It's brown colour tinted so I wouldn't personally use it on its own (especially without its waterproof function).

MAC MATTE LIPSTICK in TAUPE | £15.50

I feel like I have spoken about this lipstick a countless times now, because the shade is just perfect! I have been looking for a nude/brown lipstick for a long time and would never buy without consulting someone professional so at my last visit to MAC I asked for a recommendation and the saleslady recommended me this - it's just so gorgeous and it doesn't make you look like you wore the wrong lipstick (lol) and I've been wearing this lipstick ever since.

MAC BEAUTY POWDER in PEARL SUNSHINE | £20.50

Can I emphasise on how beautiful this blush is?!?! Someone feel me?! One beautiful sweep will make your cheeks pop with a natural blush and this is from the Faerie Fairy edition so the shade is kind of limited edition. I just can't believe how gorgeous this was on my cheeks that have enhanced the whole face to look brighter!

AMAZON 6" KINDLE | £59.99

A treat for myself on Christmas and I honestly love bringing this everywhere with me. Many classics that are also free so it's really a bonus and I loved using this baby wherever I go, especially train rides or coffee alone at Starbucks. This is also an opportunity for me to stop buying physical copies as I actually have been selling my books where you can see on Depop (just search "angerawrs"), they're all discounted!

SKINNY DIP SHEEPY CASE FOR iPHONE 6/6S | £12

Can we just look at how adorable those colourful sheep are?! For ages I have been using simple and classic phone covers and this month I just want to amp up to get my phone to look more quirky and it honestly is one of the cutest covers so I thought I'll add it into my favourites this month to share with you lot!

ARK ELDERFLOWER CHAMPAGNE CANDLE | £5.50

A Cambridge-based company, Ark emphasises on homemade items and on one accidental walk I saw this shop so of course I hopped in and got myself a few candles and one that I have been burning is this one. Elderflower champagne couldn't smell any better than spring and flowers and relaxation. I'm kind of sad that it's almost finished now but I will go back and buy more scents as they're all very gorgeous scents.
