As we start 2021, in the UK , we are plunged once again into a national lockdown. Traditionally January tends to be a time lots of people focus on ‘new year, new me’ and sometimes unrealistic resolutions. Personally my resolution is to worry less. I spent much of 2020 in a state of constant worry and it really affected my mental health. I’ve made a real effort in the last few months to make sure I take a few minutes out everyday for myself , whether it’s a walk, a little pamper or just to read a magazine so self care becomes a higher priority for me. So this months ASOS box has come at a fab time and has the theme of The Ultimate Feel-Good box with goodies to help boost your mood.
I’ve had this previously in one of the ASOS box and really loved it. Its to help purify and revitalise skin and it’s really gentle on the skin. Has a nice fresh scent with the tea tree and helps with oily skin without stripping it of moisture. A full size of this is £35.
The Caudalie toner is aimed at targeting breakout prone skin while still being gentle. A full size of this is £18 and it is good for combination skin, it can be used morning and evening. Caudalie products are always a winner with me, I’ve had a few serums over the last year and they are really gentle but effective. Definitely a one I’d consider purchasing in the larger size.
Elemis is always a fab brand to receive and I’m hoping this counts as one of my five a day?! This is a super hydrating mask so perfect for this really cold winter weather as I know I’ve definitely seen a change in my skin. This is to brighten and nourish your skin in 10 minutes with super greens and passion fruit acid. I had a similar sleep mask to this from Origins and loved it so hoping this is the same. This mini size is £6.90 to purchase.
All the hand washing of the pandemic means I’ve used lots of hand cream in the last year! NEOM’s hand balm is a gorgeous smelling and super rich balm without the greasiness some hand creams have. It has essential oils and smells so fresh it makes me think of warmer times ahead! This is a full size and is £9 to purchase.
And lastly we have a Wave spray from Ouai which has featured a few times in the ASOS boxes and has become one of my favourite styling sprays. You just spray on either damp or dry hair to give loose waves and texture to your hair. It’s really lightweight and gives a nice shine as well. A full size of this costs £22.
And there we have it! 5 lovely products for a self-care treat this month. What do you guys think?
