Top Picks | January 2021

Hi, friends! Welcome back to Stylishly Good Vibes!

January is FINALLY over—aka the longest month of all eternity! I don’t know about you, but it still feels like we’re living in a time warp! Things that feel as if they just happened yesterday actually happened two months ago. It’s just weird, and I imagine it will feel that way for a while!

If you’re new to the blog and this is your first time reading my Top Picks, I’ll give you the rundown! This is a monthly series where I share my favorite products I’ve tried over the past month.

Let’s get started!

Emma Lewisham Illuminating Cleanser | Shop Here

Emma Lewisham Illuminating Cleanser

The first thing that drew me to Emma Lewisham was their branding. I mean, come on! The colors they chose are 100% me!

This product is an oil cleanser, which is always the first step in my cleansing routine. I’ve used a lot of oil cleansers, but this one takes the cake. It INSTANTLY hydrates, brightens, and softens.

A little info on Emma Lewisham: All of the products are formulated with high-performing natural ingredients, free from fillers, colors, fragrances, or preservatives. The brand also believes in being 100% circular, meaning sustainable for the environment. Good for your skin + good for the earth!

Alpha H Liquid Gold Exfoliating Treatment with Glycolic Acid | Shop Here

Alpha H Liquid Gold Exfoliator

I think an exfoliating treatment is a necessity in every skincare routine—especially when your skin is feeling dull and reactive. I stumbled upon this one from Alpha H on Sephora’s website and I’m glad I decided to give it a try.

This product is like an overnight facial, which I think we all deserve! Here is how I use this treatment: After cleansing my face, I apply the liquid to a cotton pad and apply all over my face and neck. Then, I follow up with the rest of the products in my skincare routine.

I want to make sure to note that you should NOT use this every day to start. Exfoliating can cause irritation if you overdo it. Start with using it once a week, every 3 days, and then every other day. The more you use it over time, the less you’ll have to use it regularly—if that makes sense!

LANEIGE Lip Sleeping Mask | Shop Here

Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask

My obsession with lip balm runs deep. I have one in every single bag and in my car to ensure I’m NEVER without it. I know—it’s a lot! But I love it and who doesn’t like soft, smooth lips!? I tried a sample of this lip mask a while back, but never got around to buying it. It must have been fate that I received it in a gift exchange for Christmas!

If you suffer from rough, dry lips in the winter, you’ve got to try this combo. First, apply O’Keefe’s Lip Repair Balm, then apply the LANEIGE Lip Sleeping Mask on top! Seriously MAGIC.

Kosas Weightless Lipstick | Shop Here

Kosas Weightless Lipstick

I wear lipstick every single day. It’s just one of those things that really elevates the simplest of looks! I never tried anything from Kosas until I tried a mini sample of this lipstick a couple months ago. I was instantly impressed by how moisturizing it was and how close the color was to my true lip color.

Rosewater is the perfect pink, if you ask me! If you’re looking to get into wearing lipstick, but not sure where to start, try Kosas! It’s lipstick that doesn’t feel like you’re wearing lipstick, which is the best!

Anastasia Beverly Hills Customized Eyeshadow Palette | Shop Here

Anastasia Beverly Hills Eyeshadow Palette

I mentioned this product on my Instagram Stories earlier this month, but it definitely deserves a spotlight in this post as well. I had been looking for an eyeshadow palette that complemented my eye color for the longest time. With many of the palettes I’d purchased in the past, I used maybe 3–4 of the shades and then the rest just sat in there until I decided to toss it. How wasteful!

So, when I found this product from Anastasia Beverly Hills, I was intrigued! Basically what you do is choose four eyeshadow singles from the myriad options available. Then, you’ll add the empty eyeshadow palette to your cart and the price will adjust at checkout! For $32, you get to customize an eyeshadow palette to your liking. That’s my kind of product!

Well, that’s all I’ve got for you this week! It’s crazy to think that we’re just one month away from it being a year living through a pandemic. Life is wild!

Take care, friends!

Until next time,

Alicia
