Happy New Year! I can't believe it's already 2014. Where does the time go!?!? I hope you get everything you wish for.

December Favorites
The Body Shop Body Butter in Lychee Blossom: My skin is extremely dry at the moment and this is helping as much as possible. Before I talk more about this product, my friend gave me this as a gift. First of all, I have never seen Lychee Blossom at my own The Body Shop so I was excited to try this. The scent is very light and fruity. I personally like the scent. It smells good. Secondly just like all Body Butters from The Body Shop, it sinks into my skin and melts like butter. I know some people find the Body Butter greasy but I, personally, don't. I think it's very moisturizing for my dry skin.

Julep Essential Cuticle Oil: The same friend gave me this as a gift. In honesty even though I paint my nails once a week or at least try to, I have never used cuticle oil until this product. Let me tell you, I have been missing out! It has made painting my nails easier, as well as, softened one of my cuticles. For years I tried softening my cuticles with hand lotions and it worked. The last year it stopped working and my cuticle got drier. This came in handy!

Physicians Formula Ultra-Hydrating Day & Night Cream: I actually bought this some time ago. I'm not too sure when but I bought it during a clearance sale at my drugstore. First of all, it was weird seeing a blue moisturizer. After the initial reaction and tried the product, I fell in love. This is great for dry skin individuals like myself. It's extremely moisturizing, gives me a glow, and I love how my skin looks after it's melted.

Peripera Peri's Tint in Milky Pink: I actually bought this from Korea when my dad went for a visit. You can read my thorough review. This lip stain is a mixture of tint and water. For that reason, it's lighter than stains from the US which I actually like. It's like your lip but better if you have pink lips that is. I happen to have light pink with no brown tone. Not only is it pretty, it's long lasting.

Urban Decay Naked3: A good, caring friend gifted me this palette for Christmas. I've been using it and I'm in love! Compared to 1 and 2, this is more on the pink which is great to add a color to neutral. Just like all Urban Decay eyeshadows, they're pigmented and long lasting.

December Finished Products
Aveeno Positively Radiant Intensive Night Cream: I received this product to review. You can check out my thorough review. It's very moisturizing and great for all skin types. I also love that it's from a brand I trust and the products are natural.

Would repurchase: Yes.

Victoria's Secret Pink SuperSoft Body Lotion in Wild & Berry: I bought this lotion to use at work as a hand cream. It's really moisturizing and great for dry, winter weather. Not only that, it also comes in different scents. Wild & Berry was my favorite and I still is.

Would repurchase: Yes.

Happy new year, Alyssa!
As always, impressive empties post.
I had a bottle of VS pink lotion in different scent of which I wasn't very fond of the scent. I should have gotten a different one cause it IS quite moisturizing! :)

I didn't know The Body Shop carries Lychee Blossom as well. I'm not too sure which season they carry it, but I think it's one of the seasonal scents they have. I hope you're able to find one!

Ahleessa said...

My cousin daughter's name is spelled Lena, but she's pronounced Lee-na. From my experience most people are called Lae-na so I wanted to call you with the correct name. :)

I want to pick up some of their moisturizers, but I feel like I have way too many I need to go through first... hehe~ :X

Ahleessa said...

Oh, you should get it. You will love UD Naked3. :)

Ahleessa said...

Oh, you should get Victoria's Secret Pink body lotion. They're having their semi-annual sale at the moment. Yes, Koreans make the cutest packaging. It's to die for!

Happy New Year Yurikristia! :)
