After getting so much for Christmas I was surrounded by potential new favourites. Also sale shopping commenced and I did pick up a couple of little bits of course! I have tried out various different products, foods, items etc over the last month and managed to narrow it down to a couple of favourites that really stood out for me. So without further ado, my January faves:
Tanya Burr – Just Peachy
I love this lip gloss, I love the packaging, taste, smell and colour. It goes on the lips a sort of barely there pink/peachy colour but just leaves the lips looking really glossy and pretty. It has enough colour so you can see there is a colour on your lips but nothing in your face or loud. Just simple and lovely.
Nars – Orgasm
This blusher is one of those products that just got shoved to the back of my makeup draw. A forgotten about gem. I re-discovered it again this month and fell back on love with it. The blush leaves such a pretty colour on your cheeks a very natural colour with a gold shimmer in it. Definitely wont be forgetting about that one again.
Paco Rabanne – Olympia
What a smell! Holy moly. This is the scent I’ve been waiting for my whole adult perfume wearing life. It is such a feminine perfume and the bottle is serious eye candy. I will be very surprised if this perfume lasts me any more than 6 months!
Burts Bees – Lip Shine
I have the shade Pucker. It is really shiny and glossy but the colour isn’t apparent which is what I really like about it. Plus it tastes really nice which is always a bonus. I love the fact that Burts Bees products are made with 100% natural ingredients and these lip shines are made with apricot wax. They feel so lovely.
Kind Natured – Shampoo and Conditioner
97% natural, free from Sulphates, Parabens & Petrochemicals. What’s not to love about that? The scent I got was Coconut and Shea, I picked this up because I love anything coconut scented. These make my hair feel so clean and silky soft, I have definitely found my favourite brand of hair care for the time being!
Rebel Kitchen – Mylk
THIS item, has been featured in a previous months favourites as well. I literally cannot get enough. I also found out that Tesco have stopped stocking this, which literally broke my heart haha. These are made from coconut milk, date nectar, spring water & cacao. Guilt free version of a little milkshake. They are perfect for when you just need that little bit of sweet chocolaty goodness. They have a variety of different flavours now which is so good.
Liz Earle – Intensive Nourishing Treatment Mask
This comes out as a fairly thick white mask. Apply to the skin and wait for 10-15 mins. The mask goes clear and just sinks in to the skin and you wipe away any residue with a muslin cloth after. It feels so hydrating and soft. Definitely recommend this mask if your skin is dry and stressed. Such a lovely mask.
Nakd – Bakewell Tart
OMG this bar. Is my life at the moment when it comes to little snacks. I am trying to loose a little bit of weight and I find these are a great snack to grab as they keep you fuller for longer and have great ingredients in them. Also it literally smells and tastes just like a bakewell tart.
Next – Simply Peach Lipstick
I picked this up because my mum actually kept saying how much she loves Next lipsticks. That woman is a complete lipstick connoisseur so I trust her judgement. Next do 5 lipsticks and I picked 2 up and I really love them both but the colour I have been reaching for the most is definitely Simply Peach. They are matte lipsticks and have long staying power. If you like matte lipsticks you will love these. They are also very highly pigmented.
Vanity Planet – Facial Brush
I was very excited to try this facial brush. I know that there has been a lot of hype around facial brushes at the moment, I thought I would see what its all about. Within the first week or so my skin completely broke out and was really playing up but that is the idea because it draws all the crap out of your skin. So don’t be worried or scared off when this happens as it will. I use mine 2-3 times a week and I really like it. I feel like I get a proper deep cleanse when I am using the facial brush. I can personally see a difference when I use the brush.
Fiorelli – Tote Bag
I was casually browsing through the TK Maxx website, looking at all the hundreds of bags on their site. I knew I wanted a bag that wasn’t black as I have one that I use daily, so I wanted to step away from black and have another colour option. I saw this bag and thought, perfect, that’s exactly what I am looking for. It is such a lovely colour called “Stone”. Very sturdy, nice amount of pockets inside and is just the right size, not too small not too big. Just perfect. I think I will probably use this bag to death now.
Boohoo – Eva Double Circle Layer Necklace
This necklace caught my eye, I absolutely love layering and this was perfect as it is 2 necklaces together. I do tuck the long one in sometimes so its just the shorter necklace by itself which works great. I just love the look it gives. I have defo been pairing it with most of my outfits recently
