My Top Beauty Products Throughout January


Hey Everyone! Happy Sunday! Hope you have had a lovely relaxing weekend. I've literally been spending the day blogging, listening to Taylor Swift on repeat and just having a lovely chilled day. I'm on early shifts for the next four days as I'm mentoring work experience students which I really enjoy doing but I'm definitely dreading the 2:30/3:30 wake up alarm for the next week or so. I thought that today I would do a beauty post for you all. I haven't done a beauty post in a very long time so today I thought why not tell you about all the beauty and skincare products I absolutely adored throughout January. Before I start thought I thought I'd do a little disclaimer. Most of these items were gifted to me by family and friends as Christmas presents but all opinions are 100% my own. I feel like January is the time where everyone is testing out beauty products they were given at Christmastime anyway so I thought why not do a little post about my all my favorite products. Enjoy.


Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream: One of my absolute favorite products to use throughout January if not this past year has been this absolutely incredible cream from Elizabeth Arden. Highly coveted within the beauty community it is something that I couldn't resist getting my hands on. Despite not being a huge fan of the scent (difficult to describe but not very pleasant) the main product itself is amazing. It's just such a versatile, multi-use product. I can use it on my nails, eyebrows, cuticles, as a moisturizer, as a lip-balm and even a face mask. It's just an absolutely incredible product and definitely one that every girl should have in their collection.

Rimmel London Insta-Strobing Highlighter: Okay, so before I received this product from the lovely Em Sheldon for Christmas I had never ever wore highlighter before. Don't ask me why it just wasn't a product I ever felt the need to use but I absolutely love this product and have been using it non-stop throughout January. When it comes to applying this product, I prefer to mix it in together with my foundation to give an all over glow. I'm all about that fresh glowy look with my make up and I find this really helps me get that perfect look. Definitely a product I highly recommend.

Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation: It's no big secret that I'm a huge fan of the Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation. I've currently got about 5 in my make up collection on my dressing table. I just absolutely love them however I did go through a stage of experimenting with other foundations and brands. In January however I bought this foundation and I absolutely fell in love all over again. I wear the shade 53 which is the perfect match for me and I just find it gives me such a fresh glowy look. It's one of those foundations that combats any tiredness and really does an amazing job of covering my dark circles. It is quite a buildable foundation but I prefer to wear it as medium coverage as I don't like heavy on my skin but it's definitely one I'd highly recommend if you like the glowy dewy look to your skin.

Rimmel's 'Berry Misschief' Lipstick: Another gorgeous gift I received from the lovely Em (Emtalks) for Christmas. I'm absolutely obsessed with this lipstick. Rimmel lipsticks have become a staple in my make up collection this past year and this was one of the few rimmel lipsticks I had never tried before and I absolutely love it. It's a gorgeous berry shade and as I have to wear red for lipstick this has been a firm staple in my make up bag. It's a gorgeous dark berry shade which I love as I always find that deep red shades always look the best on me and I find the formula of this lipstick is really long lasting which is perfect and what I need for long shifts at work. Definitely a new favorite of mine and one I'll be purchasing myself when this one has finished.

St Ives Pink Lemon & Mandarin Orange Scrub: Scrubs seem to be a thing of the past in the beauty world at the moment. I never ever see anything about them at all and its definitely a product I haven't used myself in ages. However I noticed that my mum bought this scrub and keeps it in the shower. I spotted it in there about half way through January and started to use it on my face and I have been obsessed every since. Not only does it smell absolutely incredible but it leaves your skin feeling super soft and looking squeaky clean and fresh which I love. I find that my skin looks a lot brighter and healthier as well which I absolutely love. I use this every morning and night and I have noticed such a difference in my skin. It's definitely a product I'm going to be purchasing myself in the future.



Calvin Klein 'Eternity Moment' Perfume: I received this perfume from my Aunt for Christmas and I absolutely love it. When it comes to beauty products skincare and perfumes tend to be two things I am absolutely obsessed with. This perfume is more of a floral scent which I'm normally not to keen on but I absolutely love this. It contains notes of lychee, chinese pink peony, musk and passionfruit amongst others and it's so gorgeous. It is one of those perfumes that can be worn either during the day or in the evening as it's not to overpowering for every day wear but strong enough to last all event as well. Definitely a perfume I'd recommend to everyone.

Origins 'Ginger Souffle' Whipped Body Cream: Origins is one of my favorite skincare brands - however due to fairly hefty price tag its one I tend to not really go near often which is a shame as their products are so amazing. Em sent me a gorgeous selection of their products consisting of a perfume, a shower gel and my favorite from the selection which was the body cream. Not only does it smell amazing but it just leaves your skin feeling incredible. Unlike most body creams that take a while to sink in and leave you feeling sticky and gross this one is the complete opposite. I find that a little goes a long way and absorbs into the skin super quickly and the scent is definitely one that lingers for a long time. I've got a full review about this collection coming up so be sure to stay tuned.

Mix & Fizz 'Martini' Shower Gel: For Christmas my cousins got me a cocktail shower gel set from Superdrug which I absolutely love. I am obsessed with cute shower gels that have a sweeter scent. My family all hate them but I think they are so cute and the scent always lingers on the skin for a long time I find. The Mix & Fizz brand always do lots of cute bath and shower gel things so I was super happy to receive this little gift set. The set comes with 6 different shower gels all named after different cocktails like Pina Colada, Mojitos etc but my favorite out of the set is definitely Martini as it smells absolutely divine. I do believe these shower gels come in full size bottles as well so make sure you check them out the next time you're in superdrug.

Ted Baker 'Blush Pink' Body Lotion: I got a couple of ted baker beauty bits for Christmas as well and one of my absolute favorite products was the 'Blush Pink' body lotion. First of all the packaging is just so cute and looks so pretty on my dressing table. It also has a pump which is a godsend for beauty products as it means you don't go to overboard with product and it smells absolutely incredible as well. It does take a little bit longer to absorb into the skin but it's still an amazing product that leaves your skin feeling moisturized and smelling amazing.


So there are my top beauty products that I used throughout January. Like I've mentioned at the beginning of this post a lot of these products were gifted to my by family and friends but I absolutely adore all these products. They are all absolutely amazing.
