January Favorites

We're already 10 days in to February! I feel like it was just New Years! This semester is flying by so far, but it's going well. This post is definitely late, but hey better late than never, right? Here it goes...

1. Trader Joe's Coconut Body Butter
I didn't know about this stuff when I bought it. I was just browsing around in my local Trader Joe's and stumbled upon it and decided to pick some up and give it a try. This stuff seriously is SO amazing, and I don't even like the smell of coconut or anything coconut for that matter. It's made with shea butter, coconut oil, and vitamin E.  Not only does it smell good, but it feels like a dream when you put it on. It makes my skin feel so soft and I love putting this on after I take a bath. It's also not expensive which is a big plus.

2. Tarte BB cream and primer (in Light)
Not only is it all natural ingredients and cruelty free, but so far it hasn't broken me out which is what I was looking for in a BB cream. I don't like to have to apply foundation every single time I want to put some makeup on, so when I got an Ulta gift card for Christmas I decided to find a BB cream that would be easy to apply, didn't break me out, and was quick and hassle free. This stuff glides on my face so easily and just melts into my skin. It gives me an even finish and surprisingly good coverage for a BB cream. This is definitely a product I have been loving so far.

3. Real Techniques Expert Face Brush
I've seen many bloggers rave over this brush and swear by it so I decided to give it a whirl and I'm so glad I did. This brush is a great size, and a great price (at about $8). I've been reaching for this brush almost everyday and I feel like you can use it for many different things, just whatever works for you. It can be a good multi-purpose brush!

4. Yogi Super Antioxidant Green Tea
This stuff doesn't just taste delicious, it's also really good for you! It's packed with antioxidants (the name gives that away) so I feel good after I drink some. I love love love drinking tea, and anything hot really. My throat has been hurting lately probably from yelling at my job because it's so loud at an indoor pool you have to yell to be heard. I've been drinking a lot of tea to help soothe my throat and I've reached for this one quite a bit. It doesn't just taste like a normal green tea, it's got a little extra flavor to it that I really like. Also, they always have cute little encouraging sayings on their strings which I look forward to each time I open a pack!

Hope everyone has a great week!
