Here's a look at the products I was loving in December:

Last year I started just picking any number of products I'm loving, instead of trying to find 5 each month (which I did previously!) So, whatever number of products I'm loving, that's what I will be sharing. 

I've been slower at using and trying out new products, so naturally my Favourites have been on the smaller side lately (and I'm totally fine with that) - here's a closer look at what I've been loving this month:

Paula's Choice Resist Barrier Repair Advanced Moisturizer ~ $38.00 US. An advanced repairing moisturizer that strengthens, smooths & improves skin’s delicate barrier in 30 minutes + locks in all-day hydration.

Over the past few months I've really been focusing on building back my skin barrier and focusing on soothing and smoothing - I had some type of skin reaction when I was quite sick and it was slightly inflamed and sensitive. I could hardly put anything on my face, with the exception of this - it is nice and thick and hydrating and so it really soothed my skin and helped settle everything! 

Maybelline SuperStay Vinyl Ink Liquid Lipstick in Red Hot ~ $18.99 CAN. SuperStay Vinyl Ink delivers up to 16 hours of wear. This no budge liquid lipstick shakes up the laws of longwear with high impact vinyl color that stays all day. Formula enriched with Vitamin E and aloe gives a comfortable feel. Simply shake, swipe and go.

This is a product formula that I've loved before - it made my monthly favourites last year, as well as my Best Makeup Products of 2022! So, it's a great product! I picked it up this year so I could have that true red shade in this shiny formula that stays on all night! I wore this out last month and to Christmas dinner this month and it stayed on and looked great the whole time! 

Skin Proud Icicle - Cooling Eye Serum Stick ~ $16.97 CAN. Refresh and refine with Icicle cooling eye serum stick. Featuring a five-part hyaluronic acid complex, this cooling balm instantly freshens and tightens, whilst helping to lock in hydration for healthy under eyes. The unique balm-like texture can be used on bare skin or added over make up for an instant pick me up!

This is such a handy product - I'm in to this stick formula that swipes on, the convenience of using an eye stick. This product uses hyaluronic acid, tocopherol, and cica extract to help improve the skin barrier and soothe the undereyes. It is cooling and soothing under the eye and it's nice and easy to use and I feel like it's pretty effective! 

What were you loving this month?! I can't wait to wrap up my Yearly Favourites for you asap too!
