January Beauty top 5

So it's that time of the month once again. Is it just me or has January really dragged out this year, it may just be the shed load of work I've been doing on my art project and all the homework that I've been getting. 

So onto today's post, I found this one hard as I got so many lovely new beauty bits for Christmas so deciding on my favourites was tough. 

First of I picked The Body Shop Vanilla bliss shower gel (£4), this is one of the Christmas scents but when I popped in at the weekend they had quite a lot left in stock so you may be able to still get your hands on it. It's not a really sickly sweet vanilla scent, instead it's quite a spicy vanilla scent. 

A skincare favourite this month has been the Boots Botanics rosewater toning spritz (£4.99) I've been using this to remove the last of my cleansing balm and I really love it. It's very fresh and cooling and I really can't wait to use it in the summer. It also smells like Turkish delight which in my world is a huge bonus! 

Makeup wise my first favourite is Mac Pro longwear Paint pot in Bare study (£15)  it really is the perfect champagne neutral colour. I've been loving using this as a base for other eyeshadows, but my favourite way to wear it is on it's own with a little bit of a matte brown to define my crease. 

Next up I have Benefit They're real mascara (£19.50) I really wish I didn't love this one as much as I do. For me it's exactly what I need it lengthens and adds volume without being clumpy. 

Finally I picked the Maxfactor Colour elixr Giant pen stick in Vibrant pink (£6.99) This is just such a beautiful colour and the wear time is fabulous. I find it wears evenly and doesn't dry out the lips. 

So that's my monthly favorites, what have you been loving this month? 


  1. I really like the max factor lip pens. I have the red and it's so gorgeous and glossy!
