The Edit #33: 2013 Favourites

Thursday, 2 January 2014

Happy New New!  The festivities are still very much continuing chez LLA but I thought I'd stop eating for long enough to bring you the beauty products that I loved throughout 2013.  There will be no surprises here, these products have been raved about time and time again and most definitely have the LLA seal of approval!

I couldn't pen a top product post without including a candle.  I burn them year-round but in Winter they are an essential.  One of my all-time favourites is Diptyque Figuier  not the most seasonal of picks but this is beautiful warming fig scent.  I love Diptyque's offerings as they burn clean and evenly and the fragrance fills the entire room and it lingers even after the flame has been blown out.

While I love a bold lip especially for night-time, during the day at work more often than than not I reach for a lip balm or a more neutral shade.  Ones that hold a special place in my heart are the Tom Ford Lip Colour Shine Lipsticks.  Quick and easy to swipe on, they impart a moisturising wash of colour.  Being the lover of peachy/pinks that I am, Frolic takes the top spot.

While I have lots of things to be grateful for, easy to style manageable hair was not one of them. Discovering Ojon products and particularly the Ojon Dry Recovery Shampoo and Conditioner was a game changer.  These leave my locks soft and silky smooth and drying my hair is half the battle it used to be!

One that I was skeptical of at first is the Therapie Himalayn Detox Salts but they've made a liar out of me because I bloomin' love them now and shudder to think how many refills I've gone through.  For me these guarantee the best night's sleep ever!  For that alone, I'm sold!

Lastly one I've mentioned an utterly ridiculous number of times before so I'll spare you (another) gushing rave review but I couldn't leave the Biologique Recherche Lotion P50 out!  Other lotions have come and gone but this remains a constant staple in my skincare stash.

See no surprises here!  What's made the final cut into your 2013 favourites?
