January 2016 Favourites

I can't believe it is 2016... I mean, I know it's only 1 more number than 2015 but it just feels so futuristic. I was only 7 when we hit the millennium but I remember it quite clearly. And every time someone refers to something from the 00's, for example, a film I'm like 'oh that's not that old then...' but then it hits me that 2000 was 16 years ago!

Anyway... so now as the month passes from January to February, let's talk about products which saw my 2016 beauty regime off to a good start!

Miss Selfridge Lipgloss


My friend Rachel got me this in a fantastic little make-up set from Miss Selfridge as a Christmas present. I don't usually like lipgloss as I find it very sticky on my lips and hate the sensation. But this one is amazing. It isn't sticky and just feels like lip balm. The shade is a beautiful pinky/plum colour with a hint of glitter. And it smells yummy too. Definitely will be purchasing more lipgloss from now on! I've wanted to try the Tanya Burr Lipgloss range for ages now... but like most things I want it is exactly that, a want rather than a need. We'll see how much longer I can hold off for... 8 month early present to self?!

Palmer's night and eye cream

As you will see from my previous post, these two items are a must for cocoa butter lovers like me. And throughout January I have used nothing else on my face... no more words needed. (although you can read my previous post for more details :P)

Telephone wire hair bobbles

You can find these in almost every shop that sells beauty products... these are from Bodycare and Superdrug
Now this is a bit of a strange one but it deserves to be featured. My friend Abie recommended these to me when I complained of getting headaches from having my hair tied up. It always tugs so hard on my hair, literally ripping my scalp off (ok... that sounded a bit brutal.) But I was advised these would be more gentle to my hair. And they are so good! No headaches! No tugging and ripping hair out! The only downfall with using these is because I have such thick hair, I can't tie these round enough times to create a high ponytail. So, if I'm wanting a super high ponytail then I will have to use elasticated hair ties.

Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Colour Deep Treatment


I've used this treatment before, but through January I bought a few sachets and used them about once a week. Aussie products smell like summer in a bottle, and every so often I will treat myself to some of their products (again, when will I learn the difference between want and need?!) and this is certainly something I want to continue to indulge in.
