Monthly Favorites: December

Hi there! Hope you are having a lovely start of the new year! The past two weeks have passed by so quickly, I have had such a wonderful time with my friends and family. As you probably know already I do a ‘Monthly Favorites’ post by the end of each month where I write about my most used and favorite products. Here are my monthly favorites of December, a couple of days late..

Caudalie Vinoperfect Complexion Correcting Radiance Serum
I love this serum, it makes my skin look brighter and more even toned as well as it reduces redness. The serum is runny and milky, it smells very nice and fresh and is a pleasure to use. I usually apply it at night, about 1-2 drops, and the next morning, I do notice a subtle glow/radiance. It is also supposed to reduce dark spots and acne scars but luckily I don’t have neither.  It also doesn’t clog my pores and I’m very clog prone, so this is a huge plus for me.

KMS Add Volume Root and Body Lift
Iove this stuff and have been using it a lot during Christmas. It really makes my fine hair have lift and look like I have much more hair than I actually do. I only spray a little bit onto my roots but my hair has so much more volume and does what I want it to do. It’s definitely a great product to use on your night on the town.

Aussie Dual Personality Anti-Frizz Conditioning Milk
With winter comes frizzy hair, unfortunately. This leave-in conditioner from Aussie really helps to prevent frizzy/electric hair. The texture is quite thin, though it is still creamy. I definitely do not apply this to my roots, just from the nape of my neck downwards. My hair is so fine that it really doesn’t need anything weighing it down. This product smells nice, and basically does exactly what it says it does.

Xen-Tan Mousse Intense
This is one of my all time favorite self tanners and it has been providing me with a beautiful, glowing tan the last month. It’s very easy to apply and the light non-sticky foam texture glides on very easily. While tanning lotions take a while to dry this mousse dries almost instantly. I love that there is hardly any smell to this product, there is no chemical smell at all, just a lovely vanilla scent.

Bioderma Crealine H2O
This has been a staple product in my skin care routine for years and I love it! It does a great job removing my makeup and is very gentle, exactly what my skin needs. I’ve been using a lot of makeup the last month due to all the Christmas parties and this product has removed my makeup perfectly without irritating my sensitive winter skin.

Deborah Lippmann 2 Second Nail Primer
I just wrote about this nail primer, which works kind of like a face primer. It gently primes and cleanses the nail for a longer wearing manicure as well as strengthening the nails. It also dries in only a couple of seconds which is great.

Essie ‘Let it Shine’ top coat
I love this top coat from Essie and I’ve been using it so much lately, it gives an amazing high shine finish and really does prolong the wear of my nail polish. The clear formula is perfect for enhancing the color of your nail polish or adding shine to bare nails.

What about you guys, what’s your monthly favorites?
