Prioritising Pampering in January

The buzz word of 2018 was self-care but, unlike some fads, the self-care trend is one that is worth sticking with as we enter 2019. Self-care can mean different things to different people but, generally speaking, it is about taking care of yourself. One way to do this is to take time to pamper yourself and, if ever there was a month which needed extra pampering, it would be January with its dark nights and gloomy skies.

Here’s the products I am using this month to pamper myself and make sure I head into 2019 feeling the best version of myself I can be.

J One

The hydrating Jelly Pack is the perfect morning all-in-one pick me up, whilst the Black Jelly Pack is an overnight mask, which gives skin a lovely glow by morning. The Jelly Cream is the ultimate day cream. It leaves skin feeling super soft and fresh.

Shea Moisture 

The coconut water weightless hair mask from Shea Moisture is just what parched winter hair needs. The Fruit Fusion weightless shampoo and coconut water weightless creme rinse are perfect for nourishing hair and giving it shine.


The Lait-Creme Concentrate from Embryolisse is great for dry skin and can be used as a primer or moisturiser. Alternatively the Hydra Mat Emulsion is great for reducing shine and suits oily or combination skin. The Soin Correcteur de Teint is a CC cream for those days you want to give the heavy makeup a rest.


The Clay Mask from Daytox is deep cleansing whilst being gentle to the skin. The firming day cream is an intensive moisturiser, which feels amazing on your skin. The Vitamin C Serum is the ultimate radiance and complexion booster. This gives me a glow even in the harshest of winter weather.

Grether’s Pastilles 

Without fail I always end up ill in January. After the over indulgence of Christmas, my immune system suffers and I can already feel myself coming down with something. Gresher’s Pastilles are brilliant for soothing sore throats. They come in a range of flavours including blueberry, redcurrant and blackcurrant.
