I'm still loving going to the swimming pool about 3 times per week and for 1 hour each time! Yeah, it's pretty cold and the pool is an open one, so you have nothing to protect you, but I love it anyway. The feeling of swimming in warm water and looking at the sky above you is just amazing! On another good note my skin has finally got used to the acne treament I've been using since October, so now I can put some makeup on! :) Not very often though, because I have to let my skin breathe and not disturb the job of the acne treatment. The great thing is that I have to use less foundation now that my skin looks better, that's why I've been using the Elf Studio Powder Brush to apply a thinner layer of foundation.

So, which products did you use a lot during December? Let me know in the comments below! Take care and until next time...
