You guys, it’s officially winter, how the heck did that happen? Along with the drop in temperature, everything else has changed – my wardrobe, my choice of hot drinks and even my beauty habits. At this time of year, I’m living for makeup worthy of fun festive fiestas, cosy baths and skincare treats, how about you?
I thought it was about time I shared another Beauty Hit List, and my current favourite products are a true sign of the season. Let’s dive in, shall we?
Advanced Night Repair by Estee Lauder
Earlier this month, I got a lovely introduction to one of Estee Lauder’s most iconic products over dinner at Ox and Finch with the team from Estee Lauder. According to a ton of articles, Advanced Night Repair serum is a top-selling repair serum but what does that mean and what does it do? Well, I’ve been using it along with my favourite moisturiser before bed for the last few weeks and I’ve noticed a big difference in my skin already! As well as feeling hydrated (so important during the colder months), I’ve also noticed my skin looking smoother and more even-toned. I’ll keep on using it and report back again soon!
Orangutan Soap by LUSH
Usually at this time of year, I’m likely to be found knee-deep in LUSH’s Christmas products (after all, the Snow Fairy addiction is real, am I right?). However, on my recent visit to their Buchanan Street store, I walked past their festive bath bombs and picked up one of the limited edition Orangutan soaps. These little guys smell yummy (thanks to the orange and patchouli oils!), look adorable and all sales of the soap help conserve the wild Sumatran orangutans by restoring their native forests. There’s plenty of time for the Christmas range – in the meantime, I’ll be scrubbing up like King Louie.
Pink Lemonade Bath Fizz by A Pony Called Steve
Made in Scotland, cruelty-free and beautifully packaged, there’s a lot to love about new-to-me indie beauty company A Pony Called Steve! Their loose bath fizz smells oh-so-sweet and it’s perfect for making winter bath times a little less gloomy. When I’m feeling mega indulgent, I’ll throw a few big handfuls in and still have a lot left in the jar to play with next time…
Meteor Storm & Fall in Love palettes and Liquid Chrome Highlighter Drops by Barry M
Barry M have really pulled out all the stops this year! Their latest drop of eyeshadow palettes are seriously dreamy, with oodles of warm and cool tones to play with and create the ultimate Christmas party eye. My favourites are the Meteor Storm palette, which is packed with metallic shades, and the Fall in Love one, which has ten rich shadows that remind me of sunsets!
On top of that, Barry M have also released their Liquid Chrome Highlighter Drops, which I’ve loved using lately. These work really well when buffed in with a brush and can be used to build as subtle or dynamic a look as you like.
So, this is what’s made it into my latest Beauty Hit List – but what about you? What are you loving at the moment and what should I try next?
