January Favorites!!!

 Wow can't believe January is long gone. What a great month is was. I want to share will you all some of the products I was loving for the month of January.

First off lets talk about Skin MD. I first heard about this product from another blogger and YouTube girl makeupbytiffanyD. This lotion honestly can be used anywhere on the body. It is so moisturizing that I have actually opted this to be my night time moisturizer. Totally not sticky blends into your skin so good. Feels so soft and silky. Its just amazing! They use to sell it at Walgreen's or CVS but I have not seen in it quite a while but you can always get it

Next Product is my eye cream that I use mornings and night! I have tried so many of these. I have about 5 on my makeup stand. But I always seem to fall back to L'Oreal eye defense cream. For some reason I think it really works. My eye area is always so smooth and I feel like my fine lines don't show up as much :) as you can see in the picture Im almost out of it. The good thing is that I can always find it at the drugstore. 

I think it retails at Walgreen's for about $10.00

What girl doesn't love great Lashes. I sure do and I'm always looking for that mascara they makes them look long and full. So as you can imagine I have so many but this month I have been using L'Oreal Voluminous Full Definition mascara. I can't say anything bad about this product. Im totally in love with it. The brush is not thin or fat just right in the middle. And it doesn't leave your lashes looking clumpy. 

Retails at $7.99

My next product I actually discovered not to long ago on one of my drugstore adventures. Its funny this month I have gone towards a lot of L'Oreal products. So when I discovered this liquid eyeliner I couldn't believe I hadn't tried this sooner. I wear eyeliner mostly everyday, this one gives you such a persist line and I think its super easy to work with. Now if your not to comfortable with doing your eye with a liquid liner trust me it takes practice but I would go with one a little more softer than this one. 

L'Oreal Infallible Super Slim Liquid Liner retails at $8.99

My next product I have been using it for months. All time favorite I have to say and yes another Drugstore product. Its my Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser. I can rage and rage about this product I love it. It does exactly what it says it does. 
  • Erases dark circles and fine lines
  • Diminishes the appearance of puffiness
  • Eye area looks radiant and refreshed 

Retails at $9.79 

My next product was actually something I refused to try I was just not feeling them. Every time I would see them I would just be like these things look so weird . And then one day my sister pops one out from her purse, I'm like oh you have one too. She raged about this product so much I actually ended up buying it. Now I owned 2 and I want more. They are the eos smooth lip balm for your lips. I apply this every morning before lipstick and every night before bed. My lips feel great and smooth. They come in different flavors and I have to say they will last you a long time. They are great. 

Retails for $2.99

Last but not least is my Foundation. This is a newbie that I will be reviewing soon on my blog. I cant tell you much about it but its been my go to Foundation for the past 2 weeks. But you will definitely see a review on my blog coming up. I have to say I'm loving it.

Retails at $9.99

 All drugstore products which is the best part! 

Oh wait I can't believe I forgot to mention my favorite Lipstick for the month of January!!! The winner is MAC Saint Germain. ALL I have to say is LOVE LOVE LOVE! 

Hope you enjoyed my January Favorites!

Hello February!!!


  1. Hi Alina! This is a very nice post, very informative. Also, I have a question: Do you recommend that skinmd for someone that has sensitive and acne prone skin? My face is really breaking out right now and I'm wondering if it's my moisturizer so I need to find a new one.

    1. Selene

      When I heard about SkinMD the girl using it was getting like a rash on her hands. After using SkinMD they went away. I have felt my skin softer after using the product. I say try it out and see how you like it. It dry's fast doesn't leave your skin feeling greasy at all but at the same time it feels very moisturizing. Let me know if you do try it out. Would love to hear your thoughts.

  2. lovely post! oh I love the L'Oreal voluminous mascaras too!

  3. Love the post, Aly! I'll definitely see if I can find the lotion. I have eczema on my hands, so I would love to see how this would work for that. I look forward to your future monthly favorites :)

  4. Yes do check it out! You can always order online if you cant find it and see how it works for you. Xo

  5. Hey i enjoyed reading your post as well as your blog... Im gonna look into the lotion.. I use josie maran argan oil which is great as a moisturizer but i use it mostly at night and i need one for mornings...

  6. Hey Crystal funny you mention Josie Maran Argan oil I just started using that as well and I'm in love so both great products.

  7. Hi Alina, just letting you know that I have nominated you for the Liebster Award. You can check out my blog for all the info.
