January Favorites and Finished Products, and Zoya Giveaway Winner

Here's my first Favorites and Finished Products for this year, 2012.
January Favorite Products
Finger Paints in Twisted: It was my favorite flake of the month. In all honesty, it's probably my favorite flakes of all time. This multi-colored flakes cannot beat any other. I posted a swatch, as well as, NOTW on top of black nail polish. It's gorgeous! Since my co-worker spilled the polish, I have less than half the polish. I'm just sad I cannot find another one! :(

Aveeno Smart Essentials Nighttime Moisture Infusion: It's been my go to moisturizer for daytime, even though, it says for nighttime. There's no rule you have to use it only for nighttime. ;) It's been helping with my dry, ashy winter weather skin. I low how thick and moisturizing it is. I'll be reviewing this soon.

Clarisonic Mia Sonic Skin Cleansing: For years I avoided this product, because I thought it would be too rough on the skin. I strongly did not believe in being rough on your skin especially your face. It would cause dryness, as well as, be more easily pruned to wrinkles. I did not want to age quicker than I needed to. I wanted to prevent aging, but I was wrong! After using this product, I noticed it was not rough and it actually cleansed my face. I could see the dirt on the brush and my skin felt better. The best part I saw improvements with each use. I will review this as well.

Maybelline Color Tattoo in #25 Bad to the Bronze: It's been my go to product of the month! It's so easy to use, simple, and the best part quick. I apply UDPP and then with my finger apply this color. I don't need any other eyeshadows, and the best part it does not crease. I will be reviewing all my Color Tattoo in a future post.

Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butter in #25 Peach Parfait: I've been enjoying Lip Butters like everyone else at the moment. I don't think it's the most moisturizing product, but it does help me. Any help with my chapped lips is a big plus for me especially with this winter weather! Not only does it moisturize, I love that it has colors. It feels like I'm wearing lipgloss. ;) My favorite at the moment and my go to color is Peach Parfait. It's very natural and I think it looks great on me. I will review and post swatches of all the ones I have in a future post.

January Finished Products
Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair: I've been using this for years. I use a lot of products for my skin (toner, serum, moisturizer), and I see improvements. It can be a combination of products, but the most important thing is that I see improvements. That should be the only thing that matters. I strongly believe in serums, but no clue which ones are good since it's not noticeable. If it was as easy as let's say moisturizer, looking for hydration but it's not.

Would repurchase: Yes, I have another on the side but it was a gift.

Aveeno Positively Radiant Eye Illuminator: I love the smell of this product, as well as, the cooling sensation on the eye area. This eye gel/cream is definitely more for younger aged skin, and I definitely recommend it for teenagers and young adults. For myself, I need something more thicker to battle my wrinkles. :( I enjoyed this product while it lasted. Check out my thorough review on this product.

Would repurchase: No, not for me since I need a thicker product. I definitely recommend this product.

The Body Shop Body Butter in Merry Cranberry: For the people who have been reading my blog for a long time knows I love the body butter from The Body Shop! It's thick, moisturizing, and the best part made from natural ingredients. I go through these products like crazy, but all worth it. My favorite flavor at the moment has to be strawberry but Merry Cranberry smells great too! You can read my thorough review on the body butter.

Would repurchase: Yes, definitely! I actually have quite a lot waiting to be used by me. Thanks to a wonderful friend who got me these as gifts. :)

The Healing Garden Relax Therapy in Green Tea: I received this in a gift set from a friend. She told me green tea was her favorite, and that she loved this product. When it came to fragrance, I thought it was okay. It's not fruity which I adore. Other than fruity flavored, I tend to not be drawn to it. It's an alright smell but not my favorite. Since it was a small sized body product, it made it easy to carry. For that reason, I used this as a hand moisturizer than an all over product. It's actually pretty moisturizing, but not thick enough for me for this winter weather. I think it's great for me for the fall weather.

Would repurchase: Maybe in other flavors.

L'occitane Shea Butter Dry Skin Hand Cream: I received this as a freebie, and I am thankful since I've been curious about this product for years. It's very thick which makes a great moisturizer for this dry, winter weather. It also makes a great size to carry in your purse. Check out my thorough review on this product.

Would repurchase: Maybe, I think it's a little bit costly for a small amount product.
