Ring in the new year with some of the industry’s best new products
If January had a catchphrase it would be ‘New Year, New You’, which makes this writer a little cross. What was wrong with the old me?! However, I am all about recalibrating, hitting reset, and taking stock at the start of the year. (And if you are looking to make some changes this January, check out our #starttheyearstrong campaign.)
If December was all about finding the perfect presents and spending time with loved ones, this month it’s time to focus on ourselves. And what better way than self-gifting some of the beauty industry’s most exciting products?
From make-up that will give you that boost on particularly dreary mid-January days, to hydrating skincare that acts as the perfect nemesis to cold weather and drying central heating, these products are guaranteed to encourage self-care and joy.

If you’re on the brand’s site, don’t leave without visiting the weighted blanket section – another serious game-changer.
