Beauties, it’s the start of a new year and we thought it was about time our little monthly series had a bit of a revamp!

We’re changing the name of this series from ‘Star Picks’ to ‘Wow Beauty Loves’ which we’re loving a lot more… we hope you do too!

As always, these products may not be new items, but they’re often either new to us that we’ve loved across the month… and sometimes they’re old favourites that we’ve rediscovered and cannot stop using!

We’d love to hear what your favourites are… leave a comment below or email us at with your suggestions, we can’t wait to hear from you!

Trepadora’s Papaya Slip

This gel-cream has grown on me and has been one I’ve reached for a lot this across the month on January. It has quite a sticky texture, which isn’t to everyone’s taste, but I find it really easy to use and it does give good hold to the hair. I like using this mainly when I first wash my hair and do the initial styling on wet hair (along with my other styling products)

It has a good ingredients list and I like that the packaging is airless, so it remains stable and active. A fab product.

Buy the Papaya Slip for £13.50 from Trepadora

Murad’s City Skin Overnight Detox Moisturiser

The outside world can be tough on the skin, particularly during the winter months. It’s exposed to many pollutants, particularly when living in the city, which can over time, damage the skins microbiome and leave it looking dull and lacklustre… not great.

I’m always looking for something that can not only strengthen my skin as I sleep, but also protect it for the day ahead… and this anti-oxidant rich moisturiser from Murad does just this.
