January 2018 Beauty Favorites

I hope everyone is having a great start to the new year! I’ve been  spending some time focusing on my skincare – especially since it’s been so cold outside! I haven’t been wearing a ton of makeup from day to day to help my skin, but I have been pulling out mascara to use! It’s been a great month to let my skin breathe!

L’Oreal Lash Paradise

I reviewed this mascara back in September – but it was the waterproof version! I had trouble fully loving this mascara, as it seemed to be a very wet formula in the beginning, then dried out very quickly! It was also extremely difficult to remove – much more difficult than ANY waterproof mascara I had ever tried! However, this time, I decided to purchase the washable version! What a complete difference that made! I am loving the way this is making my lashes look! They look long and voluminious – not to mention, this is much easier to remove at the end of the day!

Mario Badescu Lavender Facial Spray

Over the past six months or so, I’ve been using the Mario Badescu Rosewater Spray, which I love to set and refresh my makeup! They recently released the lavender version, which I was so excited to try! I wasn’t sure how differnet this spray would be, but I am loving the difference! I’ve noticed it really seems to calm my skin (especially with the cold, dry weather) and sets my makeup beautifully! I will definitely be repurchasing this!

Peter Thomas Roth Sulfur Acne Masque

As I’ve been changing some products in my skincare routine, I purchased this new mask! Over the past year, I’ve been using the Proactiv Skin Purifying Mask, which is a sulfur mask. The Peter Thomas Roth Sulfur Masque is very similar, however, it has a higher percentage of sulfur in it! I’ve been using this almost every night since I purchased it and it is making such a difference in my skin! It really pulls out any impurities and oils that are leftover in the skin after a day of wearing makeup! It only takes about five minutes to completely dry down, which makes it so easy to use!
