Happy Tuesday sweet friends! So I have been a bit MIA lately due to some exciting things happening for The Sugared Peach! I have decided to jump into the online boutique world head first. It has already been a lot of work, but so much fun at the same time! Interested? You can check it out here! But that’s not what this post is actually about. During the first month of the year, I typically have so many new things to try whether it be from Christmas gifts or from pledging to step out of my comfort zone for the new year. There were some that were total flops, but some that I just can no longer live my life without. So without further ado, here are my monthly favorites for the month of January. P.S. Read all the way to the end! There’s a GIVEAWAY in store!
So I was in need of a basic exfoliator to use prior to trying out a new self tan (which I will also be discussing). I wasn’t looking for anything special, just something to get the job done. Well what I found did way more than just that! I picked this baby up on scent alone, and I am so glad that I did! My skin has never been softer! Say goodbye to ashy winter skin, and hello to a beautiful glowing body. Not to mention this stuff smells like heaven in a jar!
I know, I know. I’m way behind the masses on this one. Beauty bloggers have been raving about this stuff for what seems like decades! For those of you who don’t know, Loving Tan is an Australian based company, and honestly, I just couldn’t justify paying such a high premium for shipping. So, when I found a code that offered free shipping + a free gift, I just couldn’t pass it up. I am here to tell you that this stuff is worth the hype! It gives such a natural, glowing tan that makes you look as if you just stepped off of a plane from the Bahamas. I went a little light on the color for my first time, just because I didn’t know what to expect. Next time I will most likely apply a bit more product for a slightly deeper tan. There was just no way this was going to be left off of the monthly favorites list! (P.S. let me know in the comments if you would like to see a self tanning routine!)
I received this little beauty as a free gift using my Sephora rewards. I had not previously used a Laura Mercier primer, but I have never been disappointed with any product from the brand so I chose this without much thought. Good. Choice. Haley. *pat on the back* Holy Grail primer. For realz. (This primer is making me go all 90’s, so you know it’s good.) It gives such a pretty, luminous finish that makes my foundation look so flawless and glowy. It is a bit on the pricey side at $38, but it comes in a 1.7 oz tube, which is larger than most. The sample size was 0.5 oz, and I am still using it after 2 months. I will definitely be repurchasing!
Dry winter lips? Not with this gem. If you know me, you know that Bite Beauty is my JAM. I seriously haven’t found a product that I don’t love. Their matte lip crayon in Glace is on my lips, on the daily. I actually got this lip mask as part of a holiday gift set that included the lip crayon (in my fave color FYI), an Amuse Bouche lipstick in Beetroot (fab) and this little treasure.
Before this stuff, I was suffering from some majorly unkissable winter lips. I’m talking constant pain. One application of this stuff overnight, and my lips were so supple and soft. Needless to say, this will forever be a winter staple. It also comes in a champagne rose gold color and a sheer candy apple red, which makes it the perfect everyday lip product when you want something a little softer than lipstick.

Any dry skin girls out there? I know your pain, but this can help. I am honestly in love with this stuff. I tend to get very dry patches all over my face that make my foundation look just plain bad and splotchy. This Micro-Dermabrasion paste took care of those real quick. When I got finished using this stuff, I felt like I had just left a spa. No seriously. My face felt so fresh and soft! This paste gets all the yucky stuff off without being rough and damaging to your skin. I will say that I did get very red right after using it, so I would recommend applying before bed.
GIVEAWAY TIME!!! I loved this eye cream so stinkin’ much that I decided to partner with my friend Alaina Stultz (a Rodan + Fields consultant) to giveaway TWO travel size Redefine Eye Creams. I have been using this product for around 3 weeks now, and I can tell a significant difference in my under-eye area. It’s tighter, less dark and I get no under-eye creases when I apply makeup. Win, win, win!
