January 2014 Favorites

Welcome to the first Favorites post of 2014. Due to finals, I spent most of my time behind my books and laptop, so not much is new on the makeup front. However, I have two new favorite skincare products to talk about. So let's get crackin'.
I finally got my hands on the ever-sold-out Pixi Glow Tonic (£16.00). But it was worth the wait. It is exfoliating, but the aloe in it prevents it from being too drying. Watch out for a full review soon!
The other discovery was the Clarins Blue Orchid Face Treatment Oil (£30). This one is targeted at dehydrated skin, but they also do one for dry skin. I picked up this one for the winter months, since my skin felt really dehydrated. I use this once or twice a week and it has worked wonders.
The few times I did go outside my dark circles were the issue. So bring out the Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer (£5.49)! It brightens and moisturizes at the same time. Just what I need.
Not enough sleep plus no sunlight equals dull skin. Enter Bourjois Happy Light Illuminating Serum (£10.99). This is one of those provides-a-glow-from-within products, which is great because I'm not a huge fan of an overly shimmery face. More on this in a future review as well.
I also have been skipping mascara this month in an attempt to give my lashes a break; I have been loving using clear mascara, The Body Shop Brow & Lash Gel (£10.00) to be precise.

So that's all for January folks. What have you been loving lately?
