Corinne’s January Favorites

Corinne’s January Favorites

January is finally coming to an end! Christmas was just a few weeks ago but I feel like it was ages ago. Weird. I have been so busy – good busy – that time has flown by. I have been up to quite a few exciting things ranging from blogger events, collaborations, blogger dates, etc and got to try some new – and old – products this month. They are my January Favorites and here I am sharing them with you guys!

Hempz Mosturizing Pomegranate Body Wash

This Hempz body wash is a complete new thing for me. I had never heard of the brand before let alone tried their products. I got it as a PR sample and when I opened the parcel, I could smell the pomegranate. The bottle smelled of pomegranate. Can you imagine?! It smelled so so good! And even better when I opened the bottle. I usually have pomegranate in cocktails (Pomagrenate cosmopolitans are bae) but I am loving it in this wash. It is enriched with hemp seed oil which helps skin hydration and nourishment, which is a good thing for me whose skin always gets very dry. But that smell, man, that smell!

The Scottish Fine Soap Company La Paloma Gift Set

We have been working with the Scottish Fine Soap Company for quite some time now. It has been such a fantastic relationship, and for good reasons! They products are amazing and they never disappoint.  I got to try the Willow & Bluebell Luxurious Gift Set while Kirsty tried the Au Lait Luxurious Gift Set. There is a review of both gift sets right there if you want. The last set we got to try, and that has turned out to be a massive crush, is their La Paloma Gift Set. I have been loving the packaging with the “oh-so 20s” print and the colors. The set comes with a body wash, body butter, hand cream and soap and is just a dream! The smell is amazing and I have been obsessed with the hand cream this month!

Adexe Meek Grande Black & Rose Gold

You guys might have heard of Adexe before. They are all over social media at the moment and for good reasons. They focus on creative timepiece that are minimalist yet elegant and chic. I don’t often wear watches. For many reasons. And also because I forget. But I have to say I am loving the design of this new one. The mesh bracelet allows for flexibility. It also never pinches my skin which is a good thing. I think the contrast of the black frame with the rose gold structure is beautiful. Who does not like rose gold anyway? You can get 15% off your order with CANDK15 if you fancy!

Boux Avenue Boux Island Body Mist

Last year, Kirsty and I attended the first Northern Blog Awards as we had been nominated in the Twitterati category. We had a blast and left with a killer goody bag. Among other things in it was this Boux Avenue Body Mist. It smells absolutely divine. A blend of passionfruit, bergamot and mango and OMG! The packaging is super cute and this mist makes a great alternative to a fragrance. It is subtle yet persistent, strong yet not too much. I love spraying it in my room and walk in the mist. Beau-ti-ful!

    Valentines is jus around the corner, the soap gift set is a great idea. This makes my valentines giving much easier this year. It definitely beats giving flowers.

  4. February 1, 2018 / 1:38 pm

    I can see why these are your favorites. That watch is so pretty. I’d also like to try that body wash. It sounds like something I’d enjoy.

  5. February 1, 2018 / 5:27 pm

    Fab photos as always and I am just drawn to the pink theme. I have seen Adexe a lot lately on social media and love the rose gold theme to the watch, but sadly I love my Apple Watch too much at the moment to even consider buying a new watch.

  6. February 1, 2018 / 5:27 pm

    I bet the pomegranate fragrance is amazing! What fabulous products and gorgeous photography. I absolutely love your flowers in the background, how colourful 😍 they are beautiful! Fabulous post Corinne 💕 xx

    I’m really curious about that body wash. It’s a brand that I’ve never heard of before. My skin tends to become dry during the winter and I love that this body wash hydrates your skin!

  21. February 2, 2018 / 10:15 am

    Wow, congrats on your nomination! What a nice giveaway you had. The packaging looks good and I think I want to try this to. Right now I am enjoying a bombshell mist by VS.

  22. February 2, 2018 / 4:55 pm

    I am not sure if it is this brand or not, but there was a Hemp based lotion in the salon I frequented in Minnesota. I loved it – but it was not pomegranate scented. It was strawberry, I think.

  36. February 3, 2018 / 6:34 am

  37. February 3, 2018 / 10:03 am

    I havent’ tried any of these items, but I’ve seen a lot of Hempz products lately. My favorite thing this month has been my new Skinlab moisturizer.

  38. February 3, 2018 / 4:49 pm

    I bet that pomegranate wash smells good. I am a big fan of body washes like this. I’d love to try it.

  39. February 3, 2018 / 4:51 pm

  42. February 4, 2018 / 3:10 am

    I’m really interested in the Hempz body wash. I keep hearing really good things from several people. That Adexe Meek Rose Gold watch is absolutely stunning. Congrats on your nomination.

  43. February 4, 2018 / 4:35 pm

    Good reviews! That watch is gorgeous! My husband bought some Hemp Lotion once (mostly just for laughs) but he ended up liking it. The only thing wrong is that it reeked of patchouli. LOL. I would be willing to try this pomegranate scented lotion!

  44. February 4, 2018 / 6:30 pm

    I love hemp! I eat hemp seeds all the time. I bet they work great in body products. I also love pomegranates! They remind me winter.

  45. February 4, 2018 / 7:24 pm

    What a great selection of products. I am such a huge fan of pomegranate. I love the smell and the health benefits of it.

  46. February 5, 2018 / 3:40 am

    I’ve never heard of this brand before but pomegranate sounds super yummy and delightful. Probably so great on the skin.

    This brand is very new to me, and it is interesting! Hope this is also available to our Beauty Bar. The scent of passion fruit and bergamot are very enticing.

  48. February 5, 2018 / 6:41 am

    I haven’t tried any of these products. I’d like to try them also!

  49. February 5, 2018 / 11:44 am

    I saw Adexe Meek Grande Black & Rose Gold in IG and love having one. I think rose gold is the still the best!

  50. February 5, 2018 / 12:16 pm

    That watch is really pretty. I love the wide face and fine mesh rose gold wrist strap. Lovely!

    February 5, 2018 / 6:44 pm

    I love the packaging on the body wash pictured, it has simplicity but still attracts my eye, the colour is just lovely too. I imagine Pomegranate smells lovely too.

  52. February 5, 2018 / 9:43 pm

    Hello, you have made some great pictures of this product. For me its hard to find the right body wash products as I dont like to smell flowers so much because I am allergic on flowers …

  53. February 6, 2018 / 12:33 am

    Great roundup. I am really digging into pomegranate body wash. Sounds amazing.

  54. February 6, 2018 / 12:54 am

    I actually don’t have experience with beauty products that are of pomegranate.So,I really like to check more details about this pomegranate moisturizing body wash.

  55. February 6, 2018 / 2:37 am

    Great product you found in January. My favorite products around that time has to be candles with winter scents.

    February 6, 2018 / 5:53 am

    The hempz body wash sounds really cool. I’ve heard of the brand before but didn’t know they had body wash. I’ll have to try it out!

  57. February 6, 2018 / 5:20 pm

    These products look awesome! The watch is gorgeous, and I love anything pomegranate. The smell and antioxidants in them are amazing, I’ll have to check that brand out. Thanks for sharing!

    Christmas seems sooo far away! And I haven’t even been busy like you.. The products seem great and I love the way you arranged them for the photos.

  60. February 6, 2018 / 11:17 pm

    Omg pomegranate!! I wish I could smell through the screen! It’s 2018, that should be a thing by now right?

  61. February 7, 2018 / 3:22 am

    Pomegranate is one of my favorite flavors/aromas for anything when it comes to skin care and so I would love this product a lot. I will look out for it next time I go on a haul for health and beauty stuff.

  62. February 7, 2018 / 9:20 pm

    Amazing picks for the favorites, these sound so good. I love a good moisturizing body wash, would check this one from Hempz.

  63. February 7, 2018 / 9:38 pm

    All these items sound very interesting! I haven’t tried any of these, but I’ve been pretty adventurous myself in January, I completely switched my skincare routine to a brand I never tried before and was very pleased! I also tried a very inexpensive shampoo 100% natural and was WOWED. How can a 4 dollar shampoo leave my hair so awesome?!

  64. February 8, 2018 / 3:32 am

    Such a cute watch, it’s hard to find many watches these days with the curved face – it’s such a nice feature!

  65. February 8, 2018 / 11:21 am

    I actually have never heard about this brand before, but it looks super promising! I wanted t start buying products that are more focused on a larger portion of natural ingredients… this one I feel like wouldn’t disappoint 🙂

  66. February 8, 2018 / 1:38 pm

    I love natural products, and this one looks like it would be great. I love Pomegranate smell also.

  67. February 8, 2018 / 2:32 pm

    I have never tried these items before but they are great picks. The body wash sounds very nice.

  68. February 9, 2018 / 3:10 pm

    The watch is simple but beautiful. I love the design and color. You have great choice of your favorites.
