I didn't do a January favourites so I thought I'd do this instead. January was a miserable month, the weather's seriously aggravated my pain so I've been looking for ways to try to cheer myself up. And one thing I've been doing is pampering my face. I first mentioned Shu Uemura oil-in-gel cleanser (1) here, it's become one of my favourite cleansers and I've just repurchased it. It suit my sensitive skin perfectly, I highly recommend it.
Philosophy's The Great Mystery Daily Facial* (2) is another product that leaves my skin feeling pampered and cleansed, it promises the results of a facial in one minute and I have to say I'm quite impressed so far. I'll do a full review in a bit.
I love Laura Mercier's Silk Creme foundation (3), it gives great coverage without looking heavy. Initially I was unsure of this, but lately I can't get enough of it. I even prefer it over Nars Sheer Glow at the moment, yeh I know.
Kiehl's Midnight Recovery (4) is such a nice product, it stops my face becoming dehydrated and doesn't irritate my skin (I'll update my progress with this properly soon).
Essie In Stitches (5) is such a pretty colour, it's a muted dusky rose with mauve undertones (I think that covers it).
And now for something completely different....
Recently I've been thinking about further study, either an MPhil or PhD. I completed my MA in Art History around a year a go and since then I've been taking a break to concentrate on my health. But, it's kind of boring so I've been returning to my books. Studying is a way for me to escape from my chronic pain and the lovely treats *cough* that come with that. It's still very early days and tuition is EXTORTIONATE so that might be a bit of a barrier.
Also, I'd love some recommendations on any fiction you've read recently, it doesn't have to be new, just good, thanks!
Have a lovely Sunday.
