Favourite products for the month of January!

Happy 2011, the start of the new decade!  Yay!  I'm planning to start fresh by watching what I eat and exercising more.  Seems a bit cliche but it's true and I hope it lasts.  Do you have a New Year's resolution of your own?

I've used tons of products over these past few months and these babies earned 5 stars from me! =)

Shiseido Crystallizing Aquafix
"Product description:  Shiseido Crystallizing Aquafix is a smoothing and retexturizing system. Shiseido Crystallizing Aquafix 's water-based gel formulation enables hair to straighten out with silky smooth and finish with a long lasting 'moist slippery look'. 

After having my hair straightened early last month using Shiseido Crystallizing Straight for the 3rd time in 2 years, my hair became too dry.  I started buying hair care products, serums, balms, softening hair masks, etc. but most of them didn't satisfy what I really wanted for my hair so I ended up searching for blogs regarding hair care for straightened hair.  Alas!  I felt like I've found what I've been looking for.  It really lived up to its promise making my hair silky smooth and easy to manage without making my hair greasy at all.  I got this item from this shop."

Toni & Guy Straight & Protect Shampoo and Conditioner
I tried looking everywhere (online shops and salons) for the Shiseido Crystallizing shampoo and conditioner but can't find it.  In my desperation to find an alternative, I saw these two on sale at Priceline and told myself to give it a try.  The shampoo cleansed my hair without drying it too much.  The conditioner makes it soft and didn't weigh my hair down like other conditioners do.  The pack includes a heat protection spray that smells great too!

The Face Shop Herb Day 365 Cleansing Foam in Peach 170ml

"Product Description:  The Face Shop Peach Cleansing Foam can develop into rich fine lather with a sweet peachy scent. 100% natural botanical extract, it penetrate deep into pores to remove all make up, dirt and impurities, using circular motion massage to enhance blood circulation. 

Enriched with peach extract and 8 different herbal nourishing extract, keeping your skin nourished, feeling relief, soft and supple."

Another product I absolutely adore as you can see, it's finished!  I have a combination skin and this doesn't make me flake.  It effectively removes makeup, cheap, and doesn't break me out.  Need I say more?  Got it from here.

Hera HD Foundation SPF15 in #23 True beige
L:  Swatch on my hand
R: When blended
I'm a MAC 30-35 and #23 is almost perfect for my skin tone.  It's a bit lighter for my liking and so I finish it with powder that's a tone darker than my skin.  It feels very light on my face feeling like I've got nothing on but don't be fooled by it cause for me it has a medium coverage.  It has a nice flowery scent that lingers for a few minutes so to those who are allergic to fragrance, get a sample first before buying the full size.  Got this from momo at Gmarket.

Paul and Joe Pressed powder duo in medium
The pan is showing itself from being used almost everyday.  The left moon shape is the shimmer and the bigger part is the fine milled powder.  I just got this out of curiosity since it was on sale at Asos and at that time, they are offering free shipping all the way to Australia.  I must say I am impressed!  Not too shimmery and not too matte at all.  It gives you that healthy glow look without the greasy and heavy feel.

So what's your favourite for the month?

Stay happy and well! =D
