Wowiee did December go by really quick, it felt like it wasn't too long ago that I arrived in HK. This month I've been revisiting a couple of previous favourites that have been featured on our blog. Through the month of December, I've purchased a couple other beauty products but am still testing them out before they deem a spot in a favourites post. This month my keep focus has been hydration. As mentioned and seen in my post here , my skin reacted pretty quickly to the cold weather. So with that in mind, here are my december favourites!
My beauty Scheming Sheet Masks
I've grown to like my beauty scheming masks also because it doesn't cause any irritations on my skin, and it takes about 30 mins to be about 90% soaked up (for my case). I use about two sheet masks per week within my pampering sessions and I always wake up with supple and hydrated skin the next morning. They're also incredibly affordable and there's bound to be one to suit your needs. They've even got a herbal sheet masks that's targeted towards acne prone skin.
Stockist - Colourmix / Sasa
Price - HK$80 for 2 boxes
Half way through the year, I discovered that my skin was actually more dry- normal, and hence I’ve been bumping up the hydration aspect of my skincare routine with various products. I absolutely love using Rosehip oil on my skin, it’s definitely become my holy-grail winter skincare product to prevent my skin from flaking and drying out through the cool winter weather.
Price: I'm not sure as my mum got it awhile back.
One of the key reasons I’ve previously held back from buying any of the naked palettes from Urban Decay despite how pretty they all look, is mainly because of my trusty Mac Eyeshadow quad that I put together myself. When I first started off with makeup, I started to collect individual MAC eyeshadows and I started with a bunch of neutrals. Meet, Dazzlelight, Tempting, Satin Taupe and Sable. My 4 staple neutrals that I take with me when I travel.
Price - HK$140 / SG$ 26 (individual pans)
I got this exactly 1 year ago, and I've started to use this about 2 -3 times a week, before I put on a face mask just to make sure I buff away the dead skin cells to ensure that the essence within my mask absorbs right in. It's definitely a plus to have this to give your skin a deeper cleanse on days where you feel sluggish and your skin isn't looking its best.
The Aria has 3 speeds so you can switch up the speed in regards to the area you are cleansing. Personally I like to use the Universal (Medium) speed for my T-zone , especially the areas around my nose that dirt and dead skin cells tend to build up on and the Delicate (Lowest) speed for my cheeks.
Stockist - Sephora / Lane crawford
Price - US$199 * SG & HK price to be confirmed asap.
H&M house boots/slippers
Clearly I’ve been obsessed with these boots, I’ve been wearing them religiously around the house to keep my feet warm to the point where they look really beat up. They’ve replaced my need to buy more fuzzy socks which was a hot favourite for me last christmas. It’s lined with faux fur , and is the most comfortable pair of house slippers I’ve ever owned. Of course when I first got them, they were a lot fluffier which made walking around the house super comfy.
Price - HK$149
That's all loves! These have been my favourites for the entire month, I hope you had a lovely christmas with your families!
Here's to an amazing 2014!
