Beauty Favourites December 2016

Well can you believe that the official "silly season" has been and gone for another year?  I absolutely adore the whole Christmas and New Years season and to be honest I like to stretch the season out for most of January too.  That will be especially easy this year as I'm taking a trip alone (no husband, no baby) to New Zealand to visit my best friend.  To say I'm excited is a huge understatement.

Anyways I've kept it simple for my December Favourites and can you believe there is not one makeup product in there.  First up is the amazing Aromatherapy Associates Instant Wellbeing set that was an early Christmas present from one of my best friends.  I've been lusting after this brand for ages so as soon as I started unwrapping this I was squealing with excitement.  This set is absolutely divine.  It has two rollerball oils - Revive Morning to assist with energy and alertness in the morning and Deep Relax to help you relax and go to sleep at nighttime.  I'm completely obsessed with both of these, they smell absolutely incredible and better than that they actually work!

The Barebabe mask was a sneaky internet buy when I saw lots of people on instagram use it and I didn't regret my purchase.  I'm going to be posting a full review on this mask shortly but it's the perfect mask for summer and gives instant results.  The Mario Badescu Facial Spray is another summer essential for keeping skin hydrated, fresh and as a bonus it helps keep your makeup on for longer. 

The Christophe Robin Hair Mask came in my Look Fantastic Beauty Secret Advent Calendar and it wowed me.  It's a rinse out mask and as someone who has long hair with dry ends this is an absolute saviour.  It made my hair so soft and so much more manageable and I'm going to be very sad when this is all gone.  The Ouai Wave Spray came as a gift at a recent Sephora event and is another product that smells amazing.  The scent actually lasts all day in your hair which I really loved but best of all this gave me lovely soft waves with no crunch and is perfect for days when I just can't be bothered drying and straightening my hair.

Well that's all for this month, I hope you've all had an enjoyable Christmas and New Years.
