Top 5 Beauty Products of January


I've been meaning to do more beauty posts for so long now but since the weather has been terrible and I've barely been wearing make up lately, I haven't had the motivation to do some. But alas! I've decided to get out of my rut and put effort in with my skincare and make up routine even if I'm not leaving the house. Being a stay at home mum has made me so lazy when it comes to my appearance, I won't lie. As long as my baby looks good, it doesn't matter if I haven't applied make up or done anything fancy with my hair or even gotten out of my pjs some days...it's a habit I'm eager to break. I used to love experimenting with make up and skincare products to see what worked well for me and now that it's been 6 months since I had my son, I don't really have any excuses as to why I'm neglecting myself so much. 

So I thought I'd do my top 5 beauty products that I've been loving throughout January - the cheap and cheerful edition. I'll do a high end brand version at the end of the month :) 


This has been my go to moisturising cream for months now. I use it every morning and every evening and it keeps my skin feeling fresh and hydrated all day. It's so lightweight so you can barely feel it on your skin but it's made such a huge difference since I've been using it, I'll swear by this over most other moisturisers. I have quite dry and sensitive skin and this ensures it's looking radiant at all times.


I received this palette in a Glossybox last year and since I've already used a fair few of Makeup Revolution's products, I had a pretty good idea that it was going to perform and it has. This brand is definitely one of my absolute favourite affordable drug store brands. This palette has such beautiful vibrant colours that when applied are lovely and sparkly and are very pigmented. Being as pale as I am, I don't usually wear too many crazy colours on my eyes but since receiving this, I've been trying out different looks and loving how they've turned out. I'm especially loving the red and pink shades.


Ted Baker Mascara
I've been looking for the link for this as it was included in a gorgeous Ted Baker set I received for my birthday but I literally can't find it anywhere so sorry about that girls! I hadn't tried any products from Ted Baker before getting this set from my mother in law but it's done nothing but blow my expectations out of the water. Everything is so stunning and goes on beautifully. It doesn't clump, it makes my lashes look ridiculously long and lasts all day without smudging, even if you accidentally wipe your eyes like I do sometimes. This mascara has very quickly joined the ranks of my all time favourite mascaras alongside the Too Faced Better Than Sex. 


Dane got me this for my birthday last year and it has always been in my make up routine since. This is my second pot and I looove it. It's a little small but is perfect to put in your handbag and touch up your cheeks for a rosy blush throughout the day. It's shimmery and feminine and smells lovely so what's not to love? 


Ever since they released this festive scent I've been obsessed and have literally bought everything from the range. Not even kidding. It smells divine and is gentle on the skin, leaving it feeling soft and supple after a relaxing bath. Alongside the body butter, this has been one of my top products for pampering myself after a long day. 

There we have it. I'm definitely not a make up or skincare guru, but I'm slowly and surely learning more about what compliments my skin so as I learn, I'll continue to share my thoughts on my favourite products with you guys. Let me know if you have any recommendations!

  2. Frosted Berries body scrub sounds absolutely delicious! I love the Bourjois blush, I have a lighter shade than you but it smells gorgeous and leaves such a lovely glow to the cheeks!
