It wasn’t hard to pick my favourite beauty products from January, in fact, I could have squeezed one or two more in (but they would have spoilt the photo)! A few of the above may be familiar and others are new discoveries.

Pai Skincare Avocado & Jojoba Hydrating Day Cream // I have struggled over the years to find a day cream that work for me – until now! This has been a brilliant find and I am using it daily (and at night too sometimes). It’s a perfect simple moisturiser which works well with my serums an facial oils as well as under makeup. This is going to have a regular spot in my bathroom cabinet. Keep an eye out for my full review.

Weleda Skin Food // I was very late to the party in discovering the merits of Skin Food. It was a toss up whether this went into my ‘Empties’ post or ‘January Favourites’, as you can see, it has been well used! This is a bit of a cult product and one that I resisted buying for some time thinking I didn’t have any use for it. I am now well and truly on the bandwagon. It’s a fantastic multi-use cream. I have been using it this month predominantly to heal my unusually dry sore lips. I also like to use it as an eyebrow tamer and a cheekbone highlighter as well as on the odd spot. I have a replacement already lined up.

Eden Perfumes // I am so excited about this discovery! I don’t want to say too much as this deserves a post all to itself. If I said Eden Perfumes make dupes of many well known perfumes at an affordable price (£18 for 30ml) and use only vegan ingredients which, needless to say are not tested on animals, would you be interested in reading more? Watch this space!

PHB Ethical Beauty Botanical BB Cream // A new addition to my make-up collection (although it’s going down fast), and a firm new favourite! A light coverage, glow-giving BB cream. I written a full review here.

Amelia Moss Rose Water // I came across natural skincare brand Amelia Moss via Twitter and couldn’t resist their half price Black Friday deal. Although you don’t need to wait for any half price deals as their products are already a great price! I have loved using this rose water either after cleansing in the evening or in place of cleansing in the morning. I also have a couple of their oils which I’m enjoying too. I’ll definitely be repurchasing.

S5 Skincare Vitality Mask* // I was kindly sent some skincare products to try from S5 Skincare. This Vitality Mask was a clear favourite for me. I’ve really enjoyed using this. I can’t claim it has reduced wrinkles or the appearance of age spots yet, but it has been the mask I have been reaching for when I’ve had a pamper session this month (in fact over the past couple of months). It feels refreshing on my skin and you can feel it getting to work on any dead skin cells. I like that it is very easy to remove, leaving no residue, which is a pet hate of mine.

What have you been loving this month?
