January Favourites

The last time I did a monthly favourites post was in July (see here) and it's been one of my most popular posts. So I thought it was about time I did another one. I can't believe we are in February already, I mean it's nearly Valentines day! Anyway I would say January was a weird one for me, between LCM and changing jobs it was busy. Therefore I only have a few favourites but let's get stuck in.

PRODUCTS
I've recently been loving the Anthony Glycolic Exfoliating & Resurfacing Wipes. They are my favourite AHA (especially when traveling). If you don't already know using products containing AHA's will chemically exfoliate your skin. Mechanical exfoliation would be using grains or beads in a scrub to remove dead skin. However chemical exfoliation removes the top layer of dead skin cells by dissolving them. These are on the pricey side however they are of high quality. Soaked in glycolic goodness the wipes are massive in size. I always use the whole wipe on my face and neck until I feel it has dried up. Each wipe has two different sides, one which is rough and exfoliating and the other is soft. I prefer to use the softer side especially if I have spots. These wipes have a citrus smell to them however you aren't able to smell it on your skin after about 15 minutes. Remember when using AHA's it's important to use SPF 15 or higher every day because your skin can become sensitive to the sun.

Another genuine new favourite of mine is the Anthony Logistics Blue Sea Kelp Body Scrub. I've been using it weekly for a whole month and it makes my skin feel so smooth. Unlike other body scrubs it doesn't contain any oil or moisturising ingredients. You may think this is a bad thing but that means the salt in it can thoroughly scrub away and give you that clean feeling. Although it contains aloe vera gel which is very soothing, I always follow up with my favourite body moisturiser because your skin truly needs it after a good scrubbing. I wish I could describe the smell but I can't sum it up. The closest thing I could say is that it smells like sweets.



For my hair I rarely find good products that I would incorporate in my routine however the Percy Nobleman Pomade is something I seem to be reaching for more often compared to my normal American Crew products (see post here). I end up straightening my hair everyday because it is thick and curly. Sometimes after going through this process I don't feel like adding a heavy product and just keeping it light. That's where the Percy Nobleman Pomade comes in. It looks like an orange jelly however it's quite a firm product. I only use a little and warm it up in my hands. Using small amounts allows me to build up the desired look I want. It gives a little shine which I love on my hair. Also it's water soluble so it's really easy to wash. You may think it's pricey at £12.99 but the amount you get will easily last you up to three months - a little bit goes a long way,

ACCESSORY
I have already featured this Brydon Brothers belt on the blog (see post here) but I thought I would mention it again seeing as it has truly been a favourite. I practically wore this belt every day in January. Also how amazing is their packaging - any belt you purchase is delivered in this wooden box.

TV SHOW



You must be thinking I'm so late to the game (which I am) but I recently started watching Scream Queens. I know everyone's been raving about it but for anyone who hasn't watched it, you have too. It's that classic horror meets comedy genre. It has so many celebrities in it from Lea Michelle to Emma Roberts and even Keke Palmer. On a really basic level every week someone is killed and you get one more step closer to finding out who the killer is. There are so many twists and turns. Just give one episode a try and you'll be hooked.

Well that's it guys, if any of my favourites are your favourites please comment below and tell me why.
