Monthly Favorites Skincare

Monthly Favorites in Skincare

February 5, 2018

January Skincare Favorites | The Beauty Look Book

I have my first monthly favorites of the year! I’m going to try and do more of these roundups and in the future will include both hits and misses. January included two moves which was a bit chaotic but it did not stop me from trying lots of new launches in skincare. There were quite a few new launches that I’ve been dying to share with you! I’ve been putting them to the test for an extended period of time in order to see if I could actually see results. My favorites list:

  • Tatcha The Essence
  • Tatcha Water Cream
  • Tatcha The Deep Cleanse
  • Fresh Lotus Youth Preserve Rescue Mask
  • Drunk Elephant Protini Polypeptide Cream
  • L’Occitane x Rifle Paper Company Shea Butter Trio
  • L’Occitane Shea Butter Cuticle Oil
  • Aesop Parsley Seed Cleansing Mask
  • Aesop Redemption Body Scrub
  • Aesop Resurrection Aromatique Hand Balm and Hand Wash from the Mind Sway Kit
  • Kate Somerville Exfolikate Gentle
  • Supergoop! Unseen Sunscreen
  • Chanel Sublimage La Brume Mist

Tatcha Favorites

Tatcha launched a new cleanser called The Deep Cleanse. It’s a gentle daily cleanser that has natural fruit exfoliants to cleanse the skin. It’s oil-free, gentle and lathers nicely with warm water. Leaves the skin soft and cleansed without any tight feel. The only thing I wish it came with was a pump although I’m not sure the thick formula is something that can be pumped easily. I’ve also continued using the Tatcha Water Cream which is one of my favorite daily moisturizers. I use it after I apply the Tatcha Essence which is my favorite essence out of all the ones I’ve tried. It’s lightweight and doesn’t have any sticky residue but makes a big difference in helping other products sit on my skin better. If you want something for travel or don’t want to buy the large size first, there’s a super cute mini Pore-Perfecting Moisturizer and Cleanser Duo available at Sephora.

Aesop Favorites

Aesop continues to be one of our favorites, a lot of the products work for both men and women. They have some really great sets for gifts but I always end up buying them for myself. I bought the Enigmatic Mind Sway Kit twice (one for my brother and one for me). I love everything in it, but my top two favorites for January included the Resurrection Aromatique Hand Balm and Resurrection Aromatique Hand Wash for the scent and formula. I just discovered they have a Resurrection Hand Sanitizer in a rinse-free version that I need to check out soon.

The Redemption Body Scrub also made my favorites list. This is Andrew’s favorite and for me tied with the Geranium Leaf Body Scrub. Both are really good for cleaning the body and getting rid of dead skin cells. The scents are really relaxing too.

My obsession with the Parsley Seed Cleansing Mask is still going strong. I always try keep a backup on hand because I don’t want to ever be without it. The mask helps draw out impurities like no other but doesn’t strip or sting the skin. Sometimes I’ll just apply it on the T-zone. It’s gentle enough I can use it multiple times a week if I’m having troubled skin.

L’Occitane x Rifle Paper Company teamed up to launch some cute products this year. A lot of the sets have sold out online but you can definitely check your local store for some items. The solid Shea Butter was the first thing I tried from their line many years ago and it’s perfect for the cuticles. There is a limited-edition Petite Shea Butter Trio with three scents: Classic Shea, Apricot and Rose. The classic one remains my favorite. Another recent discovery is the Shea Butter Nail and Cuticle Nourishing Oil. This winter my cuticles have been really dry. They are normally fine year round but we had some extra dry weather here in Florida and this was the first time they cracked. This rescued them. There’s a little brush applicator which I love.

Supergoop! Unseen Sunscreen is one of the latest launches from Supergoop! I rely heavily on their Everyday Sunscreen and was thrilled to find they launched something for the face. 100% excited that the formula is clear because the biggest challenge I have with face sunscreens is the white tint. Even though most of them say it will absorb into the skin and disappear I find so many leave that hideous white cast. This one is lightweight, long lasting, non-irritating and works well with makeup. I apply my skincare first, then the sunscreen and then foundation + powder on top. There’s no oily feel, no greasy residue, no white cast and no scent.

Other Loves

Drunk Elephant Protini Polypeptide Cream is my newest obsession for face moisturizers. I picked it up at Sephora and it was love at first use. It’s a hydrating cream but not heavy and absorbs beautifully into the face. It just feels amazing on the skin. I love that it comes with a pump/press packaging that makes for easy application and keeps the cream itself free from any hand germs. It’s worked well with all of my foundations so far. I highly recommend you give it a look if you have normal/combination skin.

Fresh launched a new face mask called the Lotus Youth Preserve Rescue Mask. I’ve tried the Lotus Youth Preserve cream before and thought it was just ok, but the mask is quite amazing. It has a very nice soothing, calming and relaxing feel to it. It’s a five minute mask that leaves the skin soft and radiant. It contains kombu seaweed which to me almost has that refreshing cucumber feel. I absolutely love it.

Two staples that continue to be staples for me include the Kopari Coconut Melt and Kate Somerville Exfolikate Gentle. Kopari Coconut Melt is my go-to for dry winter skin. I apply it at night before I go to bed and it helps with tightness and any itchy spots. The Kate Somerville Exfolikate Gentle is still one of my favorites that I use multiple times per week. I find regular exfoliation keeps my skin looking smooth and helps clear away dead skin. Andrew’s favorite is the Jack Black Face Buff which he insists is the best one on the market. It’s definitely a good one that I borrow occasionally, but I still like my Kate Somerville one because it’s more gentle.

Last but not least, face mist story and roundup still in the works but the Chanel Sublimage La Brume has been the best for me the past month with dry winter weather. It has the perfect mix of moisture and lightness to hydrate and refresh the skin without being too much.

    I am on my second jar of Cle de Peau Intensive Eye Contour Cream. Terribly expensive, but nothing else works as it does to reduce appearance of fine lines and also to hydrate the thin skin under the brow. For a night cream, I’ve been using Natura Bisse Essential Shock Intense Cream, slathered on thick. It reminds me a bit of Kiehl’s Rosa Arctica, which is another heavy-duty winter staple.

    Perfume-wise (and I spied your La Tulipe there), I have been spritzing Heeley Bubblegum Chic, a new fave. Luscious tuberose with a slight wintergreen note (a natural occurrence in tuberose) and lots of flirty fun!

  • Cyndi Nguyen February 5, 2018 at 11:00 am

    I’ve been going back and forth on whether to invest in Tatcha products but I think that I might try the small travel sizes that you mentioned. Thank you!

    • nic February 5, 2018 at 12:05 pm

      I did the travel size and I love the cleanser. I read it is quite hard to get out of the large tube, so hopefully they will fix that.

  • all that jae February 5, 2018 at 11:24 am

    Hi Sabrina, is the Tatcha Water Cream really hydrating? I’m wondering if it leaves the skin hydrated until the morning if I put it on before I go to bed? Thank you!

    • nic February 5, 2018 at 12:04 pm

      I use it often and it does last through the night, but I accredit that to the humidity of the deep south and combo skin. If in another area and you have dry skin, reach for more emollient.

    • BeautyLookBook February 9, 2018 at 7:21 am

      It’s best for normal/combo skin. It’s hydrating enough for me but if you have super dry skin I’d opt for one of their serums, Camellia Oil or Silk Cream at night.

  • nic February 5, 2018 at 12:07 pm

    Now I MUST try Aesop. I’m far too lazy to search, what’s your all time fave that isn’t facial skin related?

    • BeautyLookBook February 9, 2018 at 7:20 am

      I’d wait for the Barneys Love Yourself event, they usually happen either in February or March for springtime. My top non-face picks from Aesop are the Geranium Leaf Body Scrub, Geranium Leaf Body Cleanser, Redemption Hand Soap and Redemption Hand Cream.

  • Erin Russell February 5, 2018 at 2:16 pm

    The Aesop mask is still top of my list to try at the moment! I will need to pick it up when I have finished my current one, but I love the sound of it! 🙂

  • Shelleyeatz February 5, 2018 at 4:24 pm

    Can’t wait to try the new Supergoop sunscreen! If it works it’ll be cheaper than my holy grail (NARS smooth & protect primer SPF 50)

  • Sarah Merrill February 5, 2018 at 5:30 pm

    I’m right there with you on the DE Polypeptide cream… For about 6 months I’ve been using oils, but wanted a cream to lock it all in, so I managed to get a small GWP of the cream, and I can’t rave about it enough. For reference, I have combination skin that is moderately-quite acne prone, and this is the first face cream/lotion (except for Cetaphil light moisturizer) that HAS NOT BROKEN ME OUT. I especially love it since it has helped fade current acne marks, and plumps up my skin wonderfully. It’s not heavy enough that’s I get oily or greasy throughout the day, but moisturizing enough that it sufficiently locks hydration in at night.

  • Shreya February 5, 2018 at 8:36 pm

    I can see my favorite Tatcha water cream … I’m also looking for a good exfoliating cream for my face would like to try Jack Black.

  • Yolennie February 6, 2018 at 12:02 pm

    Wow, that sunscreen looks phenomenal! If you like lightweight essence, Belief Hungarian water essence is not bad! I’ve been loving my Pyunkang yul essence toner and mist toner, so hydrating!

  • Marina February 6, 2018 at 6:48 pm

    I love Aesop, everything smells divine. I’ve been using it for ages. Supergoop sunscreen is looking very interesting, I will need to try it. Thanks heaps for recommending it.

  • Fortune Dushey February 7, 2018 at 8:43 am

    Love Tatcha products! Try their Luminous Dewy Skin Mist. It gives your face an amazing glow!

  • Thobile Masondo February 7, 2018 at 9:58 am

    I love these skincare posts that you do. These products looks soo dreamy!

  • Whitney Lau February 7, 2018 at 7:24 pm

    I’m also loving the fresh youth preserve moisturizer.

  • Petunia February 7, 2018 at 7:36 pm

    I am all about oils this winter. Vintner’s Daughter and Juno are the two I have been reaching for most often. Always happy to try new products. Thanks for the recs!

  • Aracely Torres February 7, 2018 at 7:57 pm

    I just picked up the Fresh Youth Preserve Rescue Mask, can’t wait to try it. I really appreciate your insight into each of these products. I am extremely interested in the L’Occitane nourishing nail and cuticle oil. I am so over this winter, it has wreaked havoc on my skin, especially my hands.

  • Ashley February 7, 2018 at 8:02 pm

    Rediscovered an old favorite: the Bite Beauty Agave lip mask. Used it all of January and my lips have been in the best shape ever!

  • so_schilly February 7, 2018 at 8:52 pm

    I have several samples of the Sisley Black Rose Infusion Cream and a few of the Eye Contour Mask, I’ve been hoarding them because I didn’t want to try them and love them and of course…I did. Eye Contour Mask is nice but I can live without it, but the black rose cream…love it.

    • BeautyLookBook February 9, 2018 at 7:22 am

      Sisley is such a great line, I have loved everything I’ve tried from them!

  • Calvin F. February 7, 2018 at 8:54 pm

    Other than L’occitane all the other brands are new to me

  • Valerie Manke February 7, 2018 at 9:22 pm

    I love the Tatcha water cream!

  • vava February 7, 2018 at 9:32 pm

    My fave is my barva lipstick in passion which is an affordable and natural Earth colored lipstick .

  • Hayley Choe February 7, 2018 at 9:38 pm

    Those Rifle Paper Co prints are too cute.

    I haven’t tried a lot of aesop products, but love their new fragrance, Hwyl. It is on top of my acquisition list.

  • Ashley B. February 7, 2018 at 10:21 pm

    I’ve been wanting to to try the SuperGoop!

  • Liz February 7, 2018 at 10:27 pm

    I love the Tatcha Essence! I want to try the watercream.

  • Lisa Vandersniff February 7, 2018 at 11:27 pm

    I really want to try that SuperGoop! Love the Monthly Favorites!

  • C. Dang February 7, 2018 at 11:48 pm

    I really like the Drunk Elephant Protini Polypeptide Cream, seems to absorb pretty well so far.

  • Solange February 8, 2018 at 12:24 am

    Pixi Rose Cream Cleanser.

  • Colleen P. February 8, 2018 at 12:31 am

    Belif’s Hungarian Water Essence has been saving my dry skin lately. I’ve been using a deluxe sample and will soon need to purchase the full size. I have also been loving Crabtree & Evelyn’s hand therapy (I’ve been using the goat milk one). It’s better than most other hand creams I’ve used.

  • Laura Schmaltz February 8, 2018 at 12:41 am

    My favorite January beauty haul was from Space NK. Several of the By Terry Preciosity Christmas items went on sale and I purchased what I could get my hands on. The Ombre Black Star gift set is by far my favorite – and it was half price! I love a good deal almost as much as I love skincare and makeup. ♥️

  • Catherine E K Christensen February 8, 2018 at 1:16 am

    I bought and adore the Tatcha Water Cream (and just procured the new primer – Silk Canvas I think it’s called – and am dying for it to arrive. Gorgeous photos!

  • tasa February 8, 2018 at 1:38 am

    thanks for this sunscreen review! I’m still using up my MD Solar Science but this is a contender for next purchase

  • Nadine Maurer February 8, 2018 at 2:03 am

    For January I love the new Tom Ford Eye Soleil Eye And Cheek Palette – Soleil d’Ambre and the Sheer Cheek Duo in Levender Lust. Both are very wearable and easy to use.
    For skincare I just ordered from Space NK a backup of the Omorovicza Deep Cleansing mask.
    I love this stuff but this is not new to me. I use it since a year good year. I know you like the Omorovicza Cream Cleanser (as as I do) and think you would like the mask too.
    But after reading your blogpost I am curious to try out the AESOP Parsley Seed Cleansing Masque.

  • Julia February 8, 2018 at 2:17 am

    I just picked up the Tatcha cleanser last week and can’t wait to try it. I’ve been in to Indie Lee lately and finishing up the Rosehip Cleanser which is gentle but not necessarily the best for heavy makeup removal. I’ve also rediscovered my Chanel lip glosses!

  • Suzanne Lewinson February 8, 2018 at 2:26 am

    Other than the L’occitane, I haven’t tried any of the other things 🙈🙈

  • Andreia SPR February 8, 2018 at 4:01 am

    I still haven’t tried anything new this year, but I will be buying soon some Paula’s Choice products.

  • Sofia February 8, 2018 at 6:16 am

    I never had the opportunity to try Tatcha but I love the face mist Chanel Sublimage La Brume is one of my staples. For my dry sensitive skin is a saviour. I have always L’occitane products in my vanity table.

  • roxlet February 8, 2018 at 7:35 am

    Have you ever tried Byredo’s Pulp? It’s the longest lasting scent I own. The silage is insane.

  • Amy B February 8, 2018 at 8:52 am

    Those are some great skincare lines / products. I love Tatcha. Do you splash the essence on your face or use it with a cotton pad like a toner? I splash. Just curious!

  • lisa_carbone February 8, 2018 at 9:01 am

    My January faves were the Chanel Pourpre Profund (cream shadow), NARS Madly blush and Tom Ford single shadow in Love Shade.

    Best Lisa

  • Jackie February 8, 2018 at 9:01 am

    I have been enjoying Elemis marine cream! The moisture value is awesome, my face loves it!

  • Megan Harrington February 8, 2018 at 9:07 am

    my absolute favorite this past month was the neogen dermalogy bio-peel gauze peeling in lemon. i use them two to three times a week and the texture/dry skin around my nose and mouth is completely gone! and the rest of my face feels soft and brightened too. i love them!

  • redbaronsg February 8, 2018 at 9:10 am

    I also love the Drunk Elephant and Tatcha items

  • Sushma P February 8, 2018 at 9:12 am

    I rediscovered Laneige water sleeping mask <3

  • Elena Lizabeth February 8, 2018 at 9:15 am

    I love how to keep the cotton swabs in the candle cups!

  • pinksuzanne February 8, 2018 at 9:17 am

    My favourite for January was I purchased Laneige Lip Sleeping mask and this has made my lips feel so moisturized and absolutely love it.

  • Amy Heffernan February 8, 2018 at 9:21 am

    Drunk Elephant Protini Polypeptide Cream!

  • Julie February 8, 2018 at 9:22 am

    My January favorites is the NARS wanted palette and the YSL all hours concealer. Couldn’t go without those two. So good!

  • stephanieamccoy February 8, 2018 at 9:22 am

    The new Fresh mask is so good!

  • Stephanie February 8, 2018 at 9:26 am

    I recently found two items I like from the drugstore- clarisea sea salt face cleanser and pura naturals exfoliating face sponge. It has been hotter than normal here and I can’t really use my usual winter skin care so these have been very helpful! I also bought Winkylux’s heart shaped lipstick but have yet to wear it.

  • Jessica February 8, 2018 at 9:30 am

    I also started using the Tatcha water cream. Really unique texture and great for my sensitive skin.

  • Julie February 8, 2018 at 9:30 am

    My winter skin is just screaming out for hydration and the Tatcha Water Cream is the best thirst-quencher.

  • Natalie Lebeau February 8, 2018 at 9:31 am

    Fresh Lotus Youth Preserve Rescue Mask! So much love when it comes to this product!

  • Janine Alton February 8, 2018 at 9:38 am

    i love the
    Supergoop! Unseen Sunscreen, would love to try it!

  • Janine vdm February 8, 2018 at 9:38 am

    i would love to try the
    Supergoop! Unseen Sunscreen this summer, it looks amazing, thanks for sharing!

  • Amy L. February 8, 2018 at 9:40 am

    I’m a big fan of Aesop as well..especially the Amazing Face Cleanser which is great for my oily skin. However,I found their lotions to be a bit too greasy for my liking and the toners to be too astringent.

  • Kris February 8, 2018 at 9:48 am

    Love the La Mer creme and products by the ordinary are great clinical grade but inexpensive skincare!

  • Petra Kovarik February 8, 2018 at 9:53 am

    My January favourite item in skincare is definitely the Mun Aknari serum which contain only three ingredients but it is so efficient – the best things are the simpliest 🙂

  • Canadawest February 8, 2018 at 9:58 am

    My January favorites are the Tatcha Water Cream and Tatcha The Deep Cleanse. Really makes a difference with my dry winter skin.

  • Lauren February 8, 2018 at 10:11 am

    Some of my favorites/empties last month were the Honey Baby Naturals body jelly, Lalicious sugar lemon scrub and Briogeo deep conditioning mask.

  • MBAMommy February 8, 2018 at 10:15 am

    I got a trial size of the Drunk Elephant Protini cream and loved it! Think I need a bit of a heavier cream for NYC winters, but will definitely be purchasing for the summertime when this should be a perfect night cream. And you noted it, but I LOVE how they put everything in air tight containers – keeps the vitamins and goodies fresh/potent, and keeps extra germs from fingers out!

  • Glenda February 8, 2018 at 10:21 am

    Oh, I also got a sample of that DE cream, and I was SO surprised at how much I liked it! I only ever tried their vitamin C before, and, man, it was not good for me. I have dry/sensitive skin, and in combination with Vintner’s Daughter serum and another oil (I have some in rotation… Fresh seaberry, or Biossance squalane or Pai rosehip bioregenerative) it works REALLY well for me.
    Love finding things that my finicky skin enjoys. 🙂 It’s a personal victory every time lol

  • Jennifer Witt February 8, 2018 at 10:28 am

    This month I’m all about moisturizer for my face and lips. So my faves have been sleep lip mask and CT moisturizer.

  • Anjali February 8, 2018 at 10:33 am

    My favorites were the rose toner spray from Mario Badescu, the Whamisa organic flowers toner, and the new Lancome Absolue UV precious cells youth protector I bought while traveling in Asia!

  • Collar Wilson February 8, 2018 at 10:35 am

    I love the Tatcha products. I first learned about them from you a few years ago. Since January and February are winter months, my skin is usually very dry and itchy. I’ve been using the Sisley-Paris Black Rose Collection and I love it but I might need to add something more to my routine. The products you highlighted in this post have me very interested especially Aesop!

  • msh111 February 8, 2018 at 10:43 am

    I ordered the DE Peptide Moisturizer as a birthday present to myself. I’ve been using Dermalogica Active Moist which does work well in the summer months but now in winter my face appears to need an extra boost. We’ll see when the DE arrives!

  • Karen E Young February 8, 2018 at 10:46 am

    I’m going to have to try the new DE moisturizer! My favorites for January were DE C-Firma, Loccitane Shea Butter Intensive Hand Cream, Pat McGrath Labs Luxetrance Lipstick Sorry Not Sorry, Fresh Black Tea Age delay eye concentrate and Macadamia hair mask.

  • Anna February 8, 2018 at 10:47 am

    I finally tried Z.Bigatti. Expensive but my sensitive skin likes it and their products perform well.

  • Ellemomo February 8, 2018 at 10:51 am

    My January favorite was the SkinMedica HA5 Rejuvenating Hydrator. It’s a bit tough to get ahold of, mainly through your dermatologist’s office, but I love it! So moisturizing, smoothing and plumping! Its been the biggest game changer recently in retexturizing my skin and prepping for smooth makeup application.

  • Jane Min February 8, 2018 at 10:57 am

    My fav has to be Jack Black double duty face moisturizer. My husband uses it everyday for the spf 20 and I started using it too. I have normal to dry skin and I find it to be not greasy, easily absorbed, no flashback, and also comfortable all seasons.

  • Yookeee February 8, 2018 at 10:59 am

    I am really loving the Sunday Riley UFO Oil this month. I love the scent and the color!

  • Tammy Duong February 8, 2018 at 11:09 am

    My January Favorites is definitely discovering Biologique Recherche Products! The Lotion P50 1970 has changed my skin texture and overall radiance! Masque Vivant is another product that changed my idea of masking. It is simply the best masque for acne-prone/reactive skin. My skin is left so smooth and radiant, as if I went to get a facial! Simply amazing!! Masque VIP O2, Lait VIP O2, Creme Placenta and Fluide VIP O2 just to name a few that I have been in love with from the Biologique Recherche line.

  • Jenn Serrano February 8, 2018 at 11:17 am

    My January favorite is an oldie but a goodie and that is the La Mer renewal oil. I live in CA and our winter has been so dry, the oil is just the thing my sensitive face craves – I love that product!

  • Sue Stott February 8, 2018 at 11:30 am

    I’m going to give supergoop a try:)

  • talker blogger February 8, 2018 at 11:31 am

    My favorite has got to be L’Occitane hand cream, the L’occitane almond shower oil for winter skin fix, Chloe perfume.

  • FernandaRAndrade February 8, 2018 at 11:37 am

    My favourite is a Skinceuticals Ferrulic Acid + vitamin E… so fantastic and gentle in my skin!!!

    • FernandaRAndrade February 8, 2018 at 11:38 am

      But choosing from yours, I’ll be with Tatcha!!!

  • satelliteoflove February 8, 2018 at 11:49 am

    Dying to try the Protini.

  • Tabitha February 8, 2018 at 11:56 am

    Yves Rocher Hand Cream.

  • Lara Al Harthi February 8, 2018 at 11:56 am

    L’Occitaine’s Shea butter line is seriously one of the best! Nothing helped my dry skin more than that 😍

  • Shelby February 8, 2018 at 12:05 pm

    My faves for January were mainly Drunk Elephant products! Night/Day serums and the marula oil. Also loving the Ordinary’s caffeine eye serum and Korres Greek Yogurt Face Wash.

  • Panna February 8, 2018 at 12:33 pm

    My fave this month was definitely P50 1970. So smelly but so good! 🙂

  • Amanda Roussel February 8, 2018 at 12:43 pm

    I absolutely loved the Glossier moisturizing mask this month. I’ve been sleeping with a layer on, about once or twice a week. It’s totally changed how my skin handles the dry air from the radiator!

  • inkchick February 8, 2018 at 1:05 pm

    I became obsessed with the ordinary’s skincare products in January. Love them so much.

  • Beauty in crisis February 8, 2018 at 1:06 pm

    Great choices!! This month I finally got my hands on Glossier so I would say these are by far my favorites!! Glossier Haloscope, lipstick in Jam and Boy brow are my top 3! Plus CT lipstick in Bond Girl which I am obsessed with this month 😉

  • Sandy February 8, 2018 at 1:15 pm

    Vintage Single Extract Essence

  • Merry Rower February 8, 2018 at 1:22 pm

    That new sunscreen looks perfect for L.A.

  • alicia szemon February 8, 2018 at 1:48 pm

    my favorites were coffee scrubs and i got a large sample of the sunday riley night oil and i loved that!

  • Catherine Shi February 8, 2018 at 1:52 pm

    I love seeing your favorites! I’m so interested in the Aesop mask and thanks for letting me know about the Rifle Paper Co x L’Occitane collab! SO CUTE. I don’t need more hand cream but I’m really quite tempted.

    To be honest I’m not sure that I really have any January skincare favorites. I’m mostly actually trying to use up skincare that is working ok but not wowing me. I actually finally used up a 2+ year old jar of La Mer Soft Cream as a night cream. I’m committed to using up the rest of the acceptable moisturizers and serums I have before moving on to something new. I did get the HA + Arbutin serum from The Ordinary in late December and that’s my favorite serum right now. I also got Glossier’s The Solution but I think the jury is still out on that one, for me.

  • Stephanie February 8, 2018 at 2:22 pm

    My favorite for January was revisiting an old favorite: Sunday Riley Good Genes. My skin is finally clearing up after a few experiments gone wrong.

  • Ilvplumeria February 8, 2018 at 2:40 pm

  • Katrin Bartas February 8, 2018 at 3:30 pm

    My favourites this January skincare wise have been Lush’s Let the Good Times Roll facewash, the Geek & Gorgeous AHA liquid, the Nuxe Reve de Miel lipbalm (pot version) and The Ordinary Rosehip oil.
    I have started using the Alverde caffeine lash serum, seems promising, but can’t really tell if it’s going to become a favourite yet.

  • MALINA CRISTESCU February 8, 2018 at 6:29 pm

    I just ordered Tatcha’s water cream and I am so excited for i o arrive, to final test what I believe is last year’s most talked about brand, I feel like everyone I follow talks about it 🙂

  • Anne Capitant February 8, 2018 at 6:31 pm

    I have been super duper into The Ordinary this past month (and now into February as well). I started with they’re Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 and then added on the Buffet and now literally own 15 items from them including two different primers and foundations. And they’re SO affordable! I’ve also really been loving my Jade Roller from Mount Lai (which I got a few months ago) as it’s great for using with The Ordinary’s oils I’ve gotten like Marula and Rose Hip Seed Oil.

  • SarahJ February 8, 2018 at 6:44 pm

    I’d like to try that Supergoop! I hate having a white sheen to me with regular sunscreen.

  • Kim Pincombe-Cole February 8, 2018 at 7:28 pm

    My January favorite was the GloPro tool! I got it for Christmas and I’m in love with it…

  • ShariD February 8, 2018 at 7:38 pm

  • Trudi February 8, 2018 at 10:47 pm

    Without Sabrina, I would be lost in the endless list of skincare. Thank you so very much!

  • Amy K February 8, 2018 at 11:13 pm

    My January fav was the Drunk Elephant babyfacial (I need to get in a regular routine of using it every Sunday night). I really want to try the Drunk Elephant cream you mentioned — their packaging is so innovative and clever!

  • susan h February 9, 2018 at 12:12 am

    I love the gel cleanser from La Roche Posay which takes off all my eye make up in one wash. It’s so convenient to have in the shower.

  • Justine R February 9, 2018 at 1:27 am

    I am loving the Deep Cleanse by Tatcha more than I thought I would – so glad it was a deluxe freebie! I think I will splurge on the full size when the next VIB sale comes around.

  • Imogen Walters February 9, 2018 at 3:55 am

    I’m in love with the Tatcha Water Cream, it’s my absolute favourite moisturiser! Works so well for my oily skin, doesn’t clog my pores!

  • farrytalegonebad February 9, 2018 at 6:27 am

    Im so interested in Tatcha Products, but they are soooooo over expensive. Dont know if they are worth the money. :/

  • Ning Shahirah Alfrink February 9, 2018 at 7:24 am

    I was using the Aesop parsley seed mask for a long time and have no idea why I stopped. Will definitely be going back to it because it was amazing. My favourite for the month is Clarins double serum because my skin was in need of some serious hydration.

  • Lisa C February 9, 2018 at 9:04 am

    My absolute favorite for January is the Algenist Liquid Collagen. Made such a huge difference on my skin!

  • Cecilia J February 9, 2018 at 7:51 pm

    I’m really curious about the supergoop unseen- is it super siliconey ?

    I tried the clear murad sunscreen and I didn’t like it because no matter what I did it pilled terribly. A clear sunscreen I like is the coverfx one.

  • julie_bolduc February 9, 2018 at 10:24 pm

    The Tatcha’s silk cream sounds nice

  • Jenn E February 9, 2018 at 10:55 pm

    I’d love to try the Tatcha Essence one day! I haven’t been switching it up too much this month but my January favourite is the First Aid Beauty Ultra repair intensive lip balm. A life saver for my chapped lips this winter!

  • Lesley F February 10, 2018 at 9:56 am

    I am always looking for good face moisturizers and the Drunk Elephant Protini Polypeptide Cream sounds wonderful

  • Bojana February 10, 2018 at 3:49 pm

    Love your favorites! I liked Hada Laba Tokyo gel cream and from make up I got some new shadows from nyx and color tattoo by maybelline in bronze and rose which I use as a base and I like them very much for that purpose!

  • Tessa February 10, 2018 at 7:26 pm

    Ooh, I only recently tried the Aesop parsley seed mask after hearing about it for years and I like it way more than I expected! I usually find masks like this so drying but my skin loves it.

  • Loreta February 10, 2018 at 7:27 pm

    The fresh lotus rescue would be my pick! Love a good face mask

  • Lisa L February 10, 2018 at 8:20 pm

    Aesop sounds like they have some good stuff! I’ve been meaning to try their products since they opened a shop near me. I’d love to try the Supergoop! sunscreens especially with spring and summer approaching. My favourites in January are my MAC Mineralize Skinfinish and The Ordinary lactic acid + HA.

  • Louisa Fae Dent February 11, 2018 at 12:21 am

    Unicorn Candy Blush by Poni Cosmetics was probably my favourite I used it so much
    I finally got to Tatcha Sets so can’t wait to try out the brand

  • Anne C February 11, 2018 at 8:12 am

    So many products on your list that I want to try! I have the Supergoop! Unseen Sunscreen and I like it. It doesn’t make my face feel greasy like some other sunscreens do.

  • Stephanie February 11, 2018 at 1:06 pm

    I was so excited when I saw that Supergoop came out with a new sunscreen! I am definitely planning on purchasing once it comes out!

  • Krista Miller February 11, 2018 at 1:53 pm

    The winter is so dry, I could really use the L’Occitane Shea Butter Cuticle Oil! My nails & cuticles could use some help!

  • Julie Waldron February 11, 2018 at 2:44 pm

  • Sally Gearhart February 11, 2018 at 10:27 pm
