January Favourites



























I probably highlight this in the majority of my favourite’s posts, but how quickly has this month gone?! Most of us have been wishing the month away after the dreaded January blues - dreary weather, low on cash, and the depressive lull after the Christmas festivities. This month, my favourites comprise of new discoveries, old favourites, and products I have purposefully dug out in preparation for the spring/summer months.

The Origins Ginzing Moisturiser and Maybelline Colossal Mascara are both new discoveries that I purchased over the Christmas period and have been so obsessed with, I haven’t put them down since. I have reviewed them both, so be sure to check out my thoughts here and here. 

An additional new discovery is the Benefit It’s Potent Eye Cream. Although at the grand old age of 24, I am yet to suffer from under-eye wrinkles (touch wood), I often sport dark circles - especially after a fun-filled weekend.  I am a big fan of the Simple Hydrating Eye Cream, but as a beauty blogger, always on the look out to try new products. The consistency is luxuriously creamy, yet soaks in quickly without leaving a greasy residue. I’m not sure whether I have noticed brightening results, but it certainly works wonders in terms of hydration. It is one of a handful of Benefit products I have tried, and it has left me wanting to try and test more!

Those who are frequent readers of Beauty Toolkit will already know that I am a big fan of the CND Shellac Range. At an average price of £15 per bottle, they are not within everyone’s budget. I had a little research online at cheaper Shellac alternatives and read a mixture of positive and negative reviews on the Bluesky Shellac Range. So far, I haven’t experienced any problems and have been obsessed with this red glitter in 'Ruby Sparkle' all month. If anything, these polishes compete with CND in terms of quality, durability and expansive colour range. I will be sure to do a post soon dedicated to shellac nails, and the application and removal process.

On Monday evening, Paul and I took the plunge and booked our summer holiday! Since that very moment, I have already begun to take minor steps surrounding beauty preparation - teeth whitening being one of them. A copious amount of coffee consumed within an office environment is deadly, and I have noticed it has left my teeth slightly stained. These Crest 3D White Strips (I buy mine off eBay) are great at whitening teeth quickly and effectively; gleaming teeth and bronzed skin give a naturally fresh look in the spring/ summer months.

What have you been loving this month?
