2012 Favourite Products

There are but a few hours of 2012 left, meaning there is just time for me to sneak in with a post showcasing my top stand out products of 2012. There were, of course, many products I continued to use and love over the year that haven't quite made it into this post, but those have been featured in review or favourite posts over the past 12 months.
