January has been one of them months where I'm using all the goodies from Christmas up, trying new products that have been introduced to the new year and just loving old goodies. Essentially, I've been loving everything yet to be specific there are some products that I felt like they needed some special attention as my favourites of the month.

Frizz Ease Extra Strength 6 Effects Serum.  [LINK] £6.29 - This serum was bought on a bit of a whim after getting my hair cut with a couple of inches off. My hair had reached a really long length at Christmas and was just past my chest yet it was becoming knotty, dry and hard to manage so I felt like a refresh for the new year ahead and since my hair grows super quick it wasn't a problem for me.

My hairdresser said that my hair was lacking protein and was also slightly frizz prone, I decided to buy this classic serum yet one that is infused with silk proteins which protects, acts as a heat protectant and more. Long story short this is one step in prepping my hair for styling I can no longer be without. It takes the frizz away, keeps it soft and manageable and helps against the winter wind and damp. I really see the different in styling when I don't use this and feel 2 pumps is plenty too.

Bourjois Contour Clubbing Eyeliner [LINK] £4.99-  Many of you may know how much I used to love and wear blue eyeliner, one of my favourite eyeliners is this Bourjois eyeliner in Dynamint which is a beautiful neon mint colour. I smudge this along my lower lash line with black in the waterline to create a beautiful look that opens up my eyes really well. These eyeliners are super soft to apply and really easy with no smudging.

Dove Pure Deodorant [LINK] I was really suffering with deodorants and some weren't lasting as long as I'd like. I decided to try this Pure deodorant which admittedly I just bought in a 2 for £4 offer and was pleasantly surprised.

If you're suffering with dry skin, deodorants not working and feeling like you're using damaging products I recommend this fully. Although this deodorant has no fragrance, no alcohol or any nasties it works perfectly and lasts so much longer than any of Dove's other ranges. It feels a lot better when you spray too, you don't get caught in a aerosol alcohol mist either.  I really enjoy using this deodorant and if you are looking for a good everyday spray, this is perfect!

Benefit They're Real Mascara [LINK] £16.50 They're Real is one of the mascaras that I think really is worthy of being a best seller, I love this mascara and have spoke many times about it. It truly open up the eye and makes my lashes full, thick and glamorous all day long. Even this little tube is a real winner and I love how small it is for travelling.

DUO Fibre Brushes, 1 of 10. [LINK] £7.99 for 10 brushes.  The brushes I recently wrote about had been really popular with my readers, and they are really impressing me. I use them on a daily basis, and after their first wash they have impressed even more by maintaining quality and no shedding. For 10 brushes for only £7.99 these are such a winner and I really recommend checking out my review on the brushes here! [LINK]

Yankee Candle in Holiday Magic [LINK] This candle was part of their Simply Home range which can be found in supermarkets and online. They are often cheaper than the normal candles which is a real bonus. Asda often offer seasonal scents and these large jars can be around £8 which is a big discount compared to their other ranges. I have the scent Holiday Magic which was a christmas present, the scent smells amazing and I'd love to get the tart version too. It smells very seasonal however not too Christmassy that I can't burn it in January. I think this will last me through until the winter ends and brings a really warming scent to the home. Its the traditional christmas scent of berries, a touch of cinnamon and ginger and oranges.

What have you been loving this January?
