January Favourites

It was a challenge, but I really had to narrow down this months beauty favourties. I've been loving so many products lately that I was finding it difficult to choose just a handful for this post! These are the final five that made the cut.

Topping my list of favourites this month has to be the REN Invisible Pores Detox Mask (£18). I mentioned in a previous post that I received this mask as a Christmas present after it being on my wish list for so so long. This detoxifying clay mask works to purify the skin and unclog pores of grime and debris, leaving it looking healthier and more clear. I have been using this a lot to help my congested, oily skin and my complexion has been looking more balanced and healthy because of it. I love REN skincare, their products just work so well and are so effective. 

For me, one of the worst things about winter is that I rarely ever moisturise anywhere but my face because it's just too cold. Saying that, I have been making more of an effort lately by using The Body Shop Vitamin E Body Lotion (£8). This velvety, light lotion moisturises my skin leaving it feeling beautifully soft, smooth and hydrated. It absorbs into my skin like a dream and the scent is so subtle and heavenly too. It's an all round winner. 

I have rediscovered some old favourites this month in the form of the Lush Tea Tree Toner Water (£3.95) and the Charles Worthington Mirror Dazzle Shine Spray(£5.49). I have started using the toner most days and nights to ensure my skin is free of any remaining traces of dirt and oil. Tea tree oil has so many benefits for oily skin and I love how clean and refreshed my skin feels after I use it. I often pop this in my bag when I'm out and about to instantly freshen up my skin to. 

The Mirror Dazzle Spray has to be one of my favourite hair care products. My hair is pretty shiny already, but this just creates the most incredible metallic shine and leaves my hair glistening. It also smoothes away split ends and flyways, adding that finishing touch to my hair. I highly recommend this product, it's truly amazing and so affordable!

Lastly, my skin has been adoring the Clarins Lotus Facial Oil (£30). I have been using this without fail every night, it's light and absorbs beautifully into my skin giving my complexion a sheer and radiant glow. I see so many good results from using this facial oil, my skin always looks so much more hydrated and healthy. It truly is such a lovely product to use and smells divine too.

Have you tried any of these products? What have been your favourites this month?


  1. I really want to try that Clarins facial oil! I've heard some really fantastic things about it and I think it would really help my skin as well.

    1. Thank you :) the REN mask it great! I wish I had tried it sooner, it's completely cleared out the pores on my nose xx

  3. That shine spray looks like a dream! I have tried The Body Shop's Vitamin E day & night moisturizers as well as their facial mist and I have found all of them to be truly lovely and gentle.

  4. The LUSH Tea Tree Water is a recently addition for me but quickly made it into my January favourites as well! I'm hoping to get my hands on the REN Invisible Pores Detox mask soon. It sound fantastic and perfect for my skin.
