January favourites: Face Masks

The fabulous four as January is coming to an end I thought I post about my favorite masks which have helped me deal with Past-Christmas breakouts and fighting dry, dull skin.

Origins Drink Up Intensive Overnight mask: This is just the perfect mask for dry, dehydrated winter skin. I use it nearly every night either as mask or moisturizing cream. I doesn't break me out and my skin feels plumped but not greasy the next morning. 

It is packed with amazing ingredients (as Origins products always are) such as Apricot Kennel oil and Avocado oil and Mango butter to nourish the skin and Japanese seaweed which helps locking in the moisture. Next to it, it also smells amazing, fruity and fresh. 

Avene Soothing Moisture mask: This one is an old favorite of mine. It's a great lightweight mask, which I love slathering on when I'm in a hurry.

Origins Clear Improvements mask: As I'm writing up this post this little charcoal mask has already reached cult status in the beauty world, so I won't ramble on about this one too much. 
So let's get to the facts. This is the best mud mask I have ever used. Unlike most mud mask, this one leaves my skin plum and radiant after I manage to wash it off. 

The only warning I would give to people who suffer from acne, it probably will bring out any underlying spots at first thanks to the White China Clay. But if you can get past this stage, you soon will see a great improvement to the clarity of your skin. I use this once a week and apply it additionally on any break out areas as often as needed.

REN Glycolactic Radiance Renewal mask: This mask was on my Christmas wishlist and after using it now for a month it's safe to say that it's AMAZING. I love when a mask does what it says on the tin. It effectively removes dead skin cells, which gives you a brighter appearance and it helps fighting blemishes and acne scars. I used to love the Alpha H Liquid Gold but I have to admit, this REN mask has taken its spot.

Have any of you guys tried any of those masks? What do you think? What are your favourite masks?

In recent years I always went for big bags with short handles which I still adore (the Givenchy Antigona is still on my never ending wishlist) but I have to confess, they are not the most practical bags. So in my search for a pretty yet handy bag I opted for this butter-soft little beauty. 

The Chloe Marcie cross body bag only allows you to bring the essentials, which is in the beginning a big challenge but turns out to be a blessing! Gone are those days when I was rampaging my bag just to find my oyster card.

On another happy note, I've recently reached 2.000 Followers on Instagram which I'm really chuffed about and if your curious on what I get up to on a daily bases why don't check out my profile.

Flower Prints for spring is nothing groundbreaking but year after year it's one of my favourite trends. I've seen this combination on ASOS and was straight away sold. This scuba skirt is just the perfect way to embrace spring and since I was little I dreamed about a scarlet red skirt.

To add a little sparkle to the look, I brought my sequin clutch along and applied some of my favourite red lipstick, Chanel's Gabrielle (read more about it on my last #WOMF post).

This is only my second 'What's on my face' post but as makeup is my other great passion, I will try to blog a little more on that topic, too. I recently had to tweak up my makeup routine as I had more spots than usual (and that's the festive season skin dilemma included). I don't want to blame any names as breakouts aside, I really liked my old foundation. This month I also welcomed my first two Nars products into my beauty cabinet.

Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua Foundation - After trying numerous samples of this foundation to insure this splurge is going to work for my skin (I have numerous foundations sitting on my shelf which just don't work for my skin) I went for the 20 beige. I like it for it's light, easy to apply consistence and it ads just the right amount of coverage without looking caked up. The only recommendation is to make sure you moisturize your skin before applying, as it tends to stick to dry patches. 

Nars Foundation Powder in Santa Fe - I use this powder to cover up redness and it does a great job in blurring out blemishes and acne scars. It leaves your skin with a nice glow and isn't drying at all - what more can you ask for. 

Nars blusher in orgasm - Ok I'm probably the only girl in the world who has only discovered now how great that blush is so I think I will leave it at that - it's amazing. 

Chanel Inimitable Mascara - This mascara even manages to add some lengths and volume to my straight and short lashes, which I thought was impossible. After kissing plenty of frogs, it finally feels like I found the holy grail of mascara.

Nails inc Gel Effect Polish in Kensington High Street - This range gets thumbs up from me for its longevity, shininess and easy application.

Chanel Rouge Coco - There is just something so sophisticated about Chanel's simple yet elegant packing. The lipstick glides smoothly on your lips and it also moisturizes them nicely. I picked up the colour Gabrielle, which is a classic and glamorous red. As I'm not very big on eye makeup, red lips add the perfect finish.

Have your tried any of the products above? What do you think?

Chunky Knit Jumper just never gets boring. My latest addition to my ever growing collection is this cable knit number which I love for it's platted details.

 Hey guys! Hope you all settled well into the new year and having a great weekend. Even though I love a good bargain I couldn't help myself from going straight to checking out the new Zara collection, where I found those gorgeous printed pants. They have a very luxe fell about them and I love the cut. I paired them with a light blue jumper and my new Sandro jacket, which is my favourite sale find ... ever!

Happy 2014 everyone! The last year was full of good things and 2013 will always remind me of the year I started out my blog and where I met so many inspiring and great people. 

Last month, Emily from the Fashion Foie Gras mentioned me on her blog 'Style Blogger Watch' which defiantly was one of my highlights last year.
To round up last year I thought I'm gonna share some of my favourite outfits with you.

Thank you so much for stopping by at my blog and leaving such lovely comments, they really make my day.
