January Favorites

Fresh Brown Sugar Body Polish-This brown sugar scrub is so moisturizing that you don't really even need a body lotion afterwards! It isn't cheap, but it is worth every penny. My dry winter skin thanks this every time I use it. 

Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge in Summer Tan-this is a WONDERFUL creamy blush color to use for contour. I think it might do a better job than the Chanel Soliel Tan de Chanel. It's a bit more pigmented and more brown than orange. If you use a skunk brush, it gives anyone cheekbones! 

Physician's Formula Happy Booster's Blush-it is more pigmented than I thought and gives a beautiful rosy glow to the cheek.  The scent it pretty as well, although I don't buy the ability for it to uplift your mood. Except if you get happy because your cheeks are so pretty! 

Dr. Dennis Gross Extra Strength Alpha Beta Peel-One of my first reviews was of the regular strength version of this product because I saw it as one of the products that really helped get rid of my acne. But this one is even better! I would never go back to the regular. The extra strength doesn't irritate but you can actually see it making your skin clearer and more even.  My complexion glows after I use this. 

Mac Lipstick in Brave Red-despite a fight with my bathroom counter (in which it lost), I do adore this lipstick. I always wear a nude lip, but I went to the MAC counter and was matched with this shade for my brave (no pun intended) move to a bold lip every once in a while. It's the perfect red. Not too orange, not too blue, and not too clown-y (which I always fear I will look like when I wear red with full lips). Love! 

January is over, and thank goodness! Hopefully spring is around the corner!
