January beauty releases you should own
There’s something quite wonderful about January 1, isn’t there? There’s hope and optimism, and the feeling that a new year can bring anything (like a detox/exercise regime/healthy habit that you’ll actually stick to).
But besides the promise of an excellent year ahead, January 1 is the day when new beauty products hit counters. And that’s way more exciting than the kale-filled smoothie you’ll be drinking every day for eternity and the early bed times you’ve set for Monday to Thursday.
Here are some beauty products you can expect to see in store in January 2015:
With two shades of the cream brow colours, you can create your own customised brow colour. Isn’t that cool? The cream formulation will work wonders to fill in those gaps and make sparse brows look fuller, while giving you the peace of mind that the colour won’t smudge, flake or smear.
It’s baaaaaaack! This cult classic was actually discontinued about 10 years ago, but John Frieda received calls, emails and petitions begging them to bring back the much-loved spray. And so they did. Get your hands on the spray for ultimate beach waves that don’t require a dip in the ocean.
Formulated to be used with the Clinique Sonic Cleansing Brush, this cleanser removes every trace of dirt, make-up and impurities, leaving skin clearer, smoother and looking generally amazing. It’s also oil-free and works to remove excess oil, so it’s perfect for those with a shinier complexion.
Besides the fact that these palettes are pretty to look at, they contain the right combination of cream-to-powder shades to create an array of eye looks. Three shades (light, medium and dark) are the actual eyeshadows, so they’re quite pigmented, while the fourth shade in the middle is a transparent powder that illuminates.
This tub of nourishing goodness (which you use in the shower, by the way) combines the benefits of shea butter with moringa oil from Ghana, aloe vera from Kenya, baobab oil from Northern Ghana and marula oil from South Africa to leave skin feeling silky smooth. See how they came up with the name?
The original L’Occitane Hand Cream has earned a pretty good reputation, and we expect the same from this one. Made with 35 per cent shea butter and featuring a texture as light as whipped egg whites, it’ll feel like heaven to apply and will do even better things for the skin on your hands.

The heart-shaped packaging is beyond adorable, but that’s not all this duo has going for it. The light apricot shade is a great choice for a subtle, everyday look, while the pigmented peach hue will take your look up a notch. Added bonus: both shades are pretty universal, so they’ll suit everyone.
