December Favourites

Terax Crema Conditioner – This is an old favourite of mine, and when I say old, I mean I’ve been using this on and off for around 10 years. So yes, I really like it. They’ve changed the packaging, the formula (slightly), and the smell (thank God – this used to smell like poison) over the years, but I’ve stayed true to this little beauty. I dug this out of my hair care stash a little while ago and have been using it once or twice a week to give my hair a little bit of a treat.

Jergens BB Body Perfecting Skin Cream – When I was discussing a possible giveaway opportunity with a Jergens PR representative (which did eventuate – be sure to pop over here if you’d like to enter), she offered to send me something new from the brand to try out. I’d read Natalie’s review of the BB Cream and was dying to try it for myself, so I jumped at the opportunity to give it a go. I love this lotion, but I know it won’t be for everyone. This makes my skin look great and smells amazing but it’s not as hydrating as other lotions from the range, so if you’re someone who needs a LOT of hydration, you’d probably have to layer this over the top of something else.

Josie Maran Coconut Watercolour Cheek Gelee in Pink Escape – I spent a little bit of my birthday money at Mecca Maxima last month, and this was one of the goodies I picked up. I wore this on my cheeks a lot during December. It’s dewy pink flush is perfect for a summertime makeup look. So lovely and fresh and light.

Paula’s Choice Resist Youth-Extending Daily Mattifying Fluid SPF 15 – After finishing up my last tube of the Paula’s Choice Hydralight Moisturiser I decided that it was time to try something new. I was recently sent some products from the ‘Resist’ range by Paula’s Choice, and I decided to try give this a go. I’m really liking this, and the additional benefit of it being SPF 15 is definitely not lost on me. I haven’t noticed that it’s particularly mattifying, but it is the middle of summer here so I feel like making my skin matte right now is a battle that no product could possibly win.
