Five Things I’m Loving | February 2022

Welcome back! I have a huge backlog of photos and so many post ideas but zero motivation to write the actual blog post! Same goes for Instagram but I thought I’d ease myself back in with a Five Things I’m Loving post since it’s been a while since I did one! I have a mixture of bodycare, skincare and makeup here that I have been obsessed with recently and a mixture of repurchases and products that are new to me so let’s get to it!

Lush Rose Jam RRP £16 is definitely not a product that is new to me and I have been repurchasing it for years (although this was a Christmas present from my aunt!). Lush isn’t a shop I buy from regularly, its usually a Christmas treat and I cannot get enough of this scent! It smells of Turkish rose and also contains argan oils, vanilla and lemon oils and I am addicted to it! Honestly, I could sniff this all day! The lasting power is amazing too, I get whiffs of it off my skin throughout the day and this 250ml bottle will last ages too as you only need a tiny bit to lather. It doesn’t dry out my skin at all and I can’t recommend it enough if you like rose scents!


Moving onto body moisturiser and I was so happy to see that Bath & Body Works had started being stocked in Next! Their PocketBac hand sanitisers are some of my favourites and I always stocked up on them when I lived in Canada. I also previously had this Aromatherapy Eucalyptus and Spearmint Stress Relief Body Lotion RRP £12 and while I don’t find the scent lasts as long as I would like it to, it is so nostalgic to me now (and I just love anything eucalyptus scented in general) and I have been enjoying having it in my routine again so much! It’s very lightweight and sinks in quickly and is nicely hydrating! Love the packaging too and I got a few other products from this line for Christmas too!


Now an oldie but a goodie, The Ordinary Squalane Cleanser RRP £13.90* which is no stranger to the blog but I recently got sent the large size and I have been using it non-stop! It’s a gentle, cream to oil-like cleanser that is perfect as a first, second or double cleanse! It makes easy work of removing makeup, feels hydrating and I think everyone should have this in their collection! It featured in this Best Budget Skincare post and my Best Beauty Discoveries 2020 post!

My skin has taken a bit of a battering the last month with the weather and working from home all day in central heating isn’t helping! After having a few reactions resulting in my face being red, inflamed, itchy and flaky, Murad Intense Recovery Cream RRP £69* came to the rescue! I wasn’t sure if this would live up to the insta hype it receives but I am converted. It feels instantly soothing on stressed skin and is so comforting! It contains shea butter and macadamia oil as well as microalgae extract and instantly reduces redness as well as hydrating my skin. As you can see, I have been making my way through it quickly as it really does what it says on the tin and is the most effective recovery cream in my stash! I have a brand review coming on Murad soon with a few other products they sent to me but suffice to say, I am impressed!

Finally, a makeup pick and the Victoria Beckham Matte Bronzing Brick 02 RRP £52 has been a go to for me since I purchased it before Christmas! It’s a super weighty compact with two warm tan matte shades that I mix together to give me the perfect shade of bronzer! It matches my colouring perfectly leaving my skin looking warm but not orange, subtly defined and it never looks patchy! It lasts all day on my skin and while it’s expensive (I picked it up with 20% off) it was well worth it as I know I will get so much use out of it!
