You may have noticed, i’ve taken a few months off favourites posts. They are some of my favourite posts to read, but sometimes my favourites don’t change that often. Over the past few months, i’ve been out and about trying lots of new products. I feel like i have enough new favourites, to be able to recommend. So here are my January favourites, enjoy!
The first thing i’ve been loving this month, is the Bourjois Paris Maxi Delight Bronzer (02)(x). This was actually a gift from a relative at Christmas, i’d never used Bourjois before. It smells amazing, it’s like chocolate, vanilla and sun cream… sounds weird but trust me! I really like the colour for me, it blends really well and it looks healthy but it’s not obvious i’m wearing bronzer. I love this look in the colder months when i don’t wanna be too sun kissed. I’ve since tried a few other Bourjois products but i’m keen to discover more so please leave me with your recommendations in the comments below!
I have also been loving the NYX Lingerie matte lipstick (x). I’ve picked up three different shades, embellishment, push-up and corset. There are only £6.50 and they are so much bigger than the matte lip creams! I really love these colours, they are all beautiful nudes. They dry really quickly and give a great matte finish- the finish isn’t so great if your lips are dry or chapped so a lip scrub beforehand might be an idea, especially in this cold weather!
On the subject of lip products, i have been loving the Soap & Glory Sexy Mother Pucker Matte-Lip (x). This is a 3-D lip colour and sculpting crayon and it does exactly that. Not only is it the quality of a S&G lip product, but it makes my lips look bigger and better shaped without lip liner. I haven’t even got to the best part, these are £3.50, so inexpensive for what you actually get. I picked up the colour choccoberry to try out, i’ll definitely be heading back for more!
In the winter, i’m particular about my hand care. This month, i’ve been adoring the Rituals Miracle Scrub Ginseng & Ginkgo Biloba (x). This is like a pre-handcream scrub and i love it. It smells incredible and makes your hands so super soft. It’s not too harsh, so it doesn’t irritate any cuts you have on your hands. You have to wash this scrub off, so it’s not an on-the-go product but it makes such a difference when applying hand cream afterwards.
With cold winter nights, i’ve been upping my bath game. While it’s tempting to go into Lush and spend a small fortune, i never lie in the bath long enough to justify it.
I’ve been absolutely loving the Imperial Leather Marshmallow Bubble Bath (x) & Shower Gel (x).I’ve been using the shower gel for a while but only just noticed the bubble bath. This stuff smells incredible! The smell of the bubble bath and the gel together is just heaven! You can get this in most supermarkets and the likes of Boots, Superdrug etc. I’d definitely recommend giving this a go!
That is everything i have been loving this month, let me know if you’ve tried any of these products- i’d love to know what you thought! Also, if you have any recommendations of new beauty buys, please let me know in the comments below!
