January Beauty Favourites

beauty, favourites, hair, bath/body, skincare, makeup

Hi guys! 

I've taken a little break from my blog recently as I've been really busy with work and I've been struggling to find the time to work on my blog.

I've decided to change my blog routine up a little and cut it down to just 1 post a week for the time being, that way I can concentrate on getting good material out and promoting it throughout the week. Let me know your thoughts!

So anyway, a little delayed but here we are with January's Beauty Favourites... 

beauty, boots no7, body lotion, bath/body

Boots No7 Completely Quenched Moisturising Body Lotion
I'm unsure how much this product is as I can't seem to find a price online and I got it as part of a gift box. I wasn't expecting to like it as much as I do. I read 'lotion' and assume it's a thin, liquid-y substance but I was pleasantly surprised. It's actually pretty thick, for something in a tube and feels silly soft on the skin.

beauty, makeup, benefit, high beam, highlighter

Benefit High Beam Luminescent Complexion Enhancer (£19.50)
This is a fab liquid highlighter and often use it for a spot highlighter on my cheek bones and brow bones and I regularly add a little to my Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation to give the matte-ness more of a dewy glow, it gives it a gorgeous illuminating finish.

beauty, skincare, serum, estee lauder

Estee Lauder New Dimension Shape & Fill Expert Serum (£20.67)
After trying out a few samples of this, I loved the way it made my skin feel so was really pleased to receive it for Christmas. It promises to make contours look more defined and skin look more radiant and it honestly does work! My contours are definitely looking more prominent particularly my cheek bones! Fab stuff!

beauty, makeup, mac, lipstick, velvet teddy

MAC Lipstick in Velvet Teddy (£15.50)
I've been wearing Velvet Teddy, a deep-tone beige shade quite a lot this month. As much as I love the colour, I do wish it was a creamier finish, I'm not so much a matte fan, but still a popular lip this month!

beauty, haircare, aveeno, shampoo

Aveeno Skin Relief Soothing Shampoo* (£9.49/Lloyds Pharmacy)
This stuff is perfect for the Winter weather! All that blustery wind and cold as well as the drying central heating can leave your hair and scalp feeling really dry and sensitive. The lovely lot at Aveeno have launched this skin relieving shampoo. It's been a big hit in this house, the boys have loved using it.

What beauty products have you been loving lately?

  1. I really want to try the Benefit High Beam. I am waiting to get the Benefit They're Real mascara off my sister from her birchbox I got her for christmas as she doesn't wear mascara. I am loving the JML magic minerals foundation right now. it seems to be perfect for my dry skin! #PoCoLo

  2. Yeurgh! High beam looks amazing! I've got a highlighter at the moment and I've promised myself I won't buy one until that runs out as I'm always having half empty jars of stuff.

  3. I love the look of that lipstick- gorgeous. And on blogging, doing one post brilliantly sounds a fab compromise time-wise, hope it works out. Thanks for linking up to #PoCoLo

  4. That Velvet Teddy Mac looks gorgeous. I love a good Mac lippie :)


  5. Love the look of the lipstick. #triedtested lifeinthemumslane

  6. They look fab, I use Aveeno on my skin every day but I didn't know they did shampoo! I'll have to take a look.
