January isn’t my favourite month. Although it marks the beginning of a new year, January symbolizes the end of the Christmas holidays. This is coming from a person who has always preferred to leave Christmas decorations up until March. I have trouble letting go, okay?
The only good thing about January is that the very last day (the 31st) marks the anniversary of my birth. I’m not one for celebrating birthdays, but that day at least gets me through a month of snow and cold.
Anyways, here are my favourites for the month of January. They are mostly healthy and semi natural.
1. Tarte Amazonian Clay Matte Waterproof Bronzer (in Park Ave Princess)
This is the first bronzer I’ve ever purchased so obviously I wanted to buy something a little more natural. There are so many things I would like from the Tarte makeup line but due to the prices of the products, I’ll have to hold out. I really like this bronzer so far. It definitely gives my face the warmth it yearns for in the winter months.
2. Tom’s Natural Cleansing Mouthwash
I’m on my second bottle of this stuff. It’s alcohol-free and only has 8 ingredients. Definitely a step up from the more chemical-laden mouthwashes on the market.
3. Rocky Mountain Soap Company Body Butter (in Lemongrass)
The packaging. Oh, the packaging. (It’s to die for.) I always hate applying body lotion because it is so time consuming and inconvenient. This month I realized that I desperately needed to start moisturizing and luckily my roommate bought me this little guy for Christmas. Since it’s in a deodorant-style package, you simply have to swipe this on any dry area and you’re done! You don’t even really need to rub the product in. It’s quick and easy and I will definitely purchase this for myself in the future. (It even claims to be 100% natural!)
4. Gin Gins Ginger Caramel Candy
I mentioned these candies in my travel essentials post. They ease my stomach and help lessen my acid reflux. Plus they taste delicious. Like a ‘healthy’ delicious.
5. Caudalie Grape Water
I’ve been wanting this product for a while. It’s so simple but it feels amazing on the skin. It’s also one of the least expensive items that Caudalie sells. There are only three ingredients in this product so I feel good about putting it on my skin. I like to use it to set my makeup (especially when I’m wearing foundation or powder). Sometimes makeup tends to dry out my skin and this product completely counteracts any drying.
