February Beauty Favourites

This month seems to have gone so fast and for most of it I haven't tried too many new things, either going without wearing makeup or sticking to my old favourites. There are a few new bits that i've been loving since the start of the year that i'm still using a lot.
February Beauty Favourites
La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo [+]
SKINCARE: Something that i've been using for a while and haven't really mentioned is The Body Shop Camomile Silky Cleansing Oil. I use this every night to remove makeup and cleanse then skin, it does the job and leaves my skin feeling nourished which is needed in the Winter. My skin has been a bit spotty so i've gone back to the La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo [+] which I find effective and getting rid of blemishes, reducing redness without being drying.
Dove Hair Nourishing Oil Care Leave In Spray
BODY & HAIR: My skin has definitely been feeling dry due to the cold weather, for the body i've been loving the Soap & Glory Butter Yourself Moisture Lotion. The is a thick lotion that is really nourishing, it takes a little while to sink in so I tend to use it in the evening but it's really been helping with my dry skin. For hair i've gone back to the Dove Hair Nourishing Oil Care Leave In Spray which used to be a staple of mine. I love that this makes my hair feel soft but not weighed down like some leave in conditioners can do, it also smells amazing.
Nivea Fruity Shine Peach Lip Balm
LIPS: I've been reaching for some of the same lip products recently, one that I added back into the mix is the Revlon Colorburst Lacquer Balm Stain in Provocateur which is a nice glossy red which can be worn bold or sheer. A lip balm which i've been using a lot but not mentioned is the Nivea Fruity Shine Peach Lip Balm which smells like peach ice tea and really nourishes the lips whilst leaving a slight sheen. My lips have been very dry so i've been wearing this most days.
Bourjois Quad Smoky Stories in Upside Brown
EYES: Like most people I picked up a copy of Elle magazine this month to try out the Benefit Roller Lash Mascara. I'm definitely a drugstore mascara girl but I have to admit I do really like this. The brush is curved which helps to add curl but also gives good length and definition to the lashes. For eyeshadow i've been reaching for the Bourjois Quad Smoky Stories in Upside Brown (review) which is the perfect brown quad. The shadows are pigmented and blend really nicely on the lids whilst lasting really well.

So those have been this months beauty favourites. A few new products but i'm trying to use up things I already have and shop my stash more. Have you tried any new products this month? What have been your beauty favourites?
