Wanna know what products I’ve been obsessed with this month? Grab yourself a seat, pour a cup of tea and let me tell you all about them…(P.S. stay tuned at the end of the post to watch my beauty faves video!)

Before I kick things off with the skincare I just wanted to take a minute to mention a haircare product that I’ve been obsessed with recently. If you watched my latest hair tutorial then you’ll have spotted me using the amazing *Sam McKnight ‘Cool Girl’ Texturising Mist to achieve my go-to messy curls. I have a couple of other Sam McKnight products in my haircare drawer, but lately the texturising mist is the bottle that I’ve been reaching for the most. It’s a really lightweight ‘barely there’ spray which helps to give my hair a little texture and grit. It doesn’t feel heavy or greasy like some of the other texturising sprays that I’ve tried, it just helps me to achieve that undone ‘effortless’ look that I LOVE! (It also smells great!!)

Onto skincare now and the stand out product for me this month has to be the *Omorovicza Moor Cream Cleanser. Enriched with Hungarian Moor Mud, this gentle cleanser helps to neutralise damaging free radicals and protect my face against pollution. Despite being almost clay-like, this cleanser is actually really gentle thanks to its dreamy concoction of lavender, peppermint and eucalyptus oils which soothe and refresh the skin. I’ve been really enjoying using this stuff as my third (yes, THIRD!) cleanse and honestly my skin has never felt sooooo clean.

Alongside the Omorovicza Cleanser, I’ve also been loving my bottle of *Fresh ‘Black Tea Kombucha’ Facial Treatment Essence to rid my skin of harmful pollutants, and my tub of *Drunk Elephant Lala Retro Whipped Cream to give my face a surge of much-needed moisture. And yes…I’m still obsessed with Mixa! This month I’ve been particularly enjoying the *Cica Repair Lotion which does an amazing job at nourishing my dry skin. I always look forward to using this whenever I step out of the tub or shower! It’s a dream to apply and smells almost good enough to eat…(it’s also super affordable!)

Something that was new to my skincare collection this month is the Gallinée Cleansing Bar. This is actually a soap-free soap…interesting, right? What’s great about this stuff is that it’s gentle enough to use on your body AND your face, and does a great job at soothing the skin while cleansing at the same time. It’s packed with probiotics which do an amazing job at fighting bad bacteria, alongside lactic acid which is known for its hydrating and softening properties. I’ve been really enjoying it!

I have an on/off kinda relationship with sheet masks. Sometimes I’m into them…sometimes I’m not, but this month I’ve been absolutely obsessed! Over the past few weeks I’ve been switching between the *Garnier Moisture Bomb Tissue Mask (which is suuuuper hydrating AND affordable) and the *Lancôme Advanced Génefique Melting Mask (which is a more luxury option). I only tried the Melting Mask the other week but it’s already one of my favourites! Once removing the mask (I left mine on for about 30 minutes) I just massaged any excess product into my skin. Afterwards my face felt really soft and full of moisture! I love both of these!

Onto the makeup now and one of the products that I’ve been reaching for the most is the *Revlon Cream Eyeshadow in the shade ‘710’. You might have heard me talk about my favourite cream shadow by Charlotte Tilbury in the shade *‘Bette’ and I think the reason that I love this Revlon shadow is because it’s actually a really great, slightly more affordable version of that. It’s one of those products that works for both day and night because it’s super buildable and REALLY easy to apply. For lashes I’ve been loving the *La Roche-Posay Masacara in the shade ‘Respectissime’ because it gives me ultimate volume and length that lasts all day! For the face I’ve been reaching for my *Lancôme Dual Powder Foundation which I like to use to set my makeup for the day.

Lately I’ve found myself reaching for my *Charlotte Tilbury Cheek to Chic Blush in the shade ‘First Love’ pretty much all the time. This blush gives my finished makeup look a really natural-looking pop of colour with a glowy finish. I love it! Lips wise I’m still obsessed with the *Dior Lip Glow Pomade, it’s great for those ‘no makeup’ makeup days because it adds a subtle tint to your natural lip colour. My number one makeup product for this month though HAS to be the *Fenty Gloss because it’s simply stunning! I’ve been really enjoying pairing mine with my favourite *Buxom Plumpline Lip Liner in the shade ‘Incognito’. I feel like I’m going to be wearing this combo for the rest of the year!

So those are all the things I’ve been reaching for during January. Definitely make sure you watch my video if you want to hear me talk about them in a little more detail. I’d love to know what you guys have been loving this month! Leave me a comment down below and tell me what’s been floating your beauty boat over the past few weeks!
