January 2011 Faves {monthly edition}

A few of these might be a repeat but when I like something I like...here are my January beauty favourites. This month I took a snapshot of the items as opposed to making a collage. Let me know which format you prefer.
NeoStrata Daytime Moisture Infusion Cream-new release this month! Lucky for me I received this earlier and  it came at a perfect time as I needed a new daytime moisturizer. Contains a Neostrata patent called Moist 24TM, a unique plant extract that increases skin's moisture by 40%. Ingredients include, mango butter, petrolatum, and glycerin. For a moisturizing product doesn't feel heavy, feels quite light on the skin and pleasant slight fragrance which I like as I don't like the chemical smells of SPFs.

Avon Ideal Shade Tinted Moisturizer SPF 15-in shade light medium, a sheer tint, spreads evenly and perfect for daily use. I've raved about this product before and definitely look into this tinted moisturizer when it goes on sale. As AVON often does! Comes in a 30ml tube which is ideal for travel.

OPI Nail Laquer in shade You Don't know Jacques-an older shade that was released in 2008. Love this muddy taupe shade for Winter. Either for a manicure or pedicure looks great!

MAC Lipglass in shade LoveChild-gorgeous mauve shade with flecks of gold.

Paula's Choice Targeted Acne Relief Toner with 2% Salicylic Acid-this gentle toner is perfect to combat blackheads, 2% salicylic acid is the right amount for me to keep those nasty buggers from returning.

North American Hemp Co. Finishing Smoothing Cream-a creamy milky lotion that smooths flyaways, apply to damp hair and let dry naturally for a nice wave. Contains certified organic hemp seed oil, B5 pro-vitamin, and shea butter. Smells like suntan lotion (in a good way).

What were your January beauty favourites?


  1. I really want to try that Love Child Lipglass. I remember seeing it in store and it is such a flattering colour. :)

  2. ooh, love child looks pretty! you don't know jacques is an interesting colour, is this still available? or was it limited edition?

  3. I think my fav January beauty find is the Vichy Aqualia line of face creams... Perfect for my dehydrated winter skin :)

    You just reminded me that I had You don't know Jacques and that it needs some using :)

  4. I love the nail polish! Look so neutral(=

  5. I love OPI You Don't Know Jacques, such a classic shade that works in the winter or summer with brights.
