Payday beauty treats - 5 of the best products to buy this January

Anyone else find themselves looking forward to payday and making a mental note of all the things that you'd like to buy? January in particular gets a bad reputation for being one the most depressing month of the year but as it's been payday recently I thought I'd put together 5 of the best beauty products to treat yourself to as a little reward for getting through the month:


How gorgeous is the collaboration between L'occitane and stationary brand Rifle Paper Co? L'occitane hand creams are somewhat of a cult favourite thanks to their moisturising shea butter and coconut oil formula but this January they've been updated with a beautiful hand illustrated print. Both designs are inspired by the natural beauty of Provence, although I think the pink rose one is particularly lovely and in addition to being a great hand cream it'll also add a fun pop of colour to any desk.

Since it's launch The Ordinary has earned a reputation for being highly scientific and always delivering on results - not surprising really as it's owned by the same company behind Deciem and NIOD. There's a whole range of products to choose from, but if you're not sure I'd recommend starting with The Ordinary hyaluronic acid. It's a lightweight serum which helps to draw water into the skin and thus help with winter dehydration. A good dupe for the much loved Hydraluron and a great one to try if you're on a budget.

Since discovering the Olay Regenerist range a few years ago this cream has been a firm favourite. It's designed to hydrate and improve elasticity as well as reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, which is definitely something I need now that I'm in my late twenties! It's a good one to use under make up as it's not too heavy but at the same time still rich enough to protect against the elements and keep any fine lines at bay.

Since discovering Bobbi Brown cosmetics for our wedding I've been a big fan of the brand and I think this blush is one of those gorgeous suit all shades. It may not look like much in the pan but applied onto the cheeks it transforms into the most pretty rosy pink flush. A great one for everyday wear, especially for work as it just looks so natural and really helps to perk up the complexion. 

Another office favourite - over the years I've found myself shying away from bright colours and instead favouring pretty pinks and subtle nudes. Described as a shimmering sheer pastel pink Essie Vanity Fairest adds just a hint of colour as well as the most subtle soft glitter which you can only see when it catches the light. A good alternative to the usual nudes for a French Manicure or if you want something that still polished and pretty but without being too eye catching.  

Have you tried any of the 5 products? What's on your payday wish list this January?
