2017 Favourites

A little late, but we finally have my 2017 favourites! I love favourites post, so of course I was going to do this one. I’ve tried to include a mix of things, but it’s quite a long list, so prepare yourselves. Here we have my 2017 favourites:

The Body Shop | Body Milk

I absolutely love this stuff. I’ve heard countless people talk about the importance of moisturising after a shower, but who has the time for that right? Turns out I do. I thought it would take ages, but with this it takes just around 4-5 minutes. The spray bottle makes it extremely easy to use, so I’d definitely recommend going for the 250ml. The best thing about this for me, is that it doesn’t leave that greasy feeling. It’s refreshing and both scents smell amazing. The Body Shop only do this in Coconut and Moringa, but I love both of them.

 Urban Decay | Naked 1 Palette

 This is by far my favourite palette. My safe go to look is this palette, as it’s everything I love. My favourite shade is Sidecar as it’s makes a stunning lid colour. I know a few people complain that this palette doesn’t have enough mattes; which it doesn’t. I love a shimmer though, so I don’t mind.

Redken | One United All in One Multi Benefit Treatment

I included this in my January favourites (where some of the text is pink, and I have no idea how to change it) I still love it now. I’m on the same bottle, but getting towards the end of it. It’s lasted over a year, so I really can’t complain. This was a lifesaver on holiday, because I normally struggle with getting the bobble out of my hair after a trip to the beach, but this made it so easy to get out. You can use this on wet hair or dry hair, so it’s a great all-rounder. It also has 25 benefits, so you can cut down on the amount of products you need to travel with.

The Beach

I went on Holiday in January last year and was happy to go to the beach and go in the sea. This is a massive thing for me, as I used to hate the beach. Mainly because I felt self-conscious, and it would get on top of me. I remember going to the beach a few years ago, and staying in my coverup laying underneath an umbrella, and I wouldn’t move. For 2017 I got myself off the sun-bed, and into the sea and made some absolutely amazing memories with my family.

The Body Shop | Lightening Drops

This was a lifesaver in 2017; drastic, but true. I’m really pale and often struggle to find foundations that match my ghostly complexion, so I started to mix a few drops of this into the foundation on the back of my hand. Which led to a much better match. I’m on my third bottle now, as I use it pretty much everyday. I was a little unsure at first because of the price, but they are really worth it. The only problem I have, is that I aren’t keen on the little dropper, because I find that it doesn’t dispense the product very well/ easily.

My Mum Got Married

(A little worse for wear)

It was the most beautiful day, and so fun too. It is a day I will never forget, as everything about it was spot on. It’s the first wedding I’ve been involved in, and the whole getting ready process is so fun, but it seemed to go fast. One minute we were having breakfast and then it seemed to fly into needing to get into the dresses. It still feels strange that my mum has a different surname to me now, but I’m hoping it’ll settle in soon.

ColourPop | Super Shock Highlight in Spoon

I don’t know what happened this year, but I started to love a really intense glittery highlight. I know a lot of people don’t like chunky highlighters that contain lots of glitter, but this one has definitely been an exemption for me. It’s not the strongest colour, but it leaves you glistening and glittering like there’s no tomorrow. It’s fab for nights out, but once you get used to wearing it; every other highlight seems subtle.

Spectrum | Tall Tapered Blender B06

(Yes it’s dirty, don’t judge me)

I use this brush every time I do my eyeshadow, as it’s amazing. It’s the perfect shape that’s amazing for blending and applying a transition colour. Spectrum brushes in general are some of my favourites, but the B06 wins hands down.

The Co-Operative Irresistible Triple Chocolate Cookies

I know it’s New Year and January is always health kick season, but you really need to try these cookies. They are by far the best ones I’ve tried, and not to brag, but I’ve tried a lot of Triple Chocolate Cookies. These are a little pricey in cookie terms, but they’re worth it. I used to work at Co-Op, and I mainly miss it for the discount, so I could get these. (No Shame)

Too Faced | Hangover 3 in 1 Setting Spray

I love Too Faced; the pink, girly packaging draws me in every-time, but it’s not so bad, as the products are amazing. I’m now on my second bottle of this, as I use it for the three uses, but always end up spraying too much. It contains Coconut Water which is amazing for dry skin, so not only is it moisturising; it smells good too.

Creating a Scrapbook

I’ve always loved the ideas of scrapbooks, but I never bothered with it, as I always put it off. In 2017 I was contacted by Printiki to try some prints, and I felt like that was the kick I needed. This isn’t sponsored or anything either, I just really love their prints. It’s amazing to be able to look back at memories that aren’t on a screen.

Congratulations for getting to the end! That turned out a lot longer than I thought, but it was hard to narrow down.

What were your 2017 favourites?

Thank you for reading!

    I loved this favorites post! I like that you added things from your personal life, which is gonna be great to look back on. I just added that Redkin product to my Ulta wish list, so I’ll get it next time I make a purchase on there! I will probably do the same thing with the too faced setting spray, since I have extremely dry skin. Great post hannah xxx

    What a great roundup of favorites! The Naked 1 is such a classic palette, and one I still reach for despite my growing collection – the shades just complement each other so well. I love the sound and look of the Too Faced setting spray, will need to give that a try when I finish my MAC Fix+!

  15. I love your list of favourites – it’s such a fun variety! I’ve always wanted to make a scrapbook but have never been able to make it through to the end (I think it’s the hassle of printing photos that has put me off) – maybe I’ll be able to do it this year!

    Heather xoxo

  16. Love your 2017 favourites! The body Shop shower gels are amazing. Love their pinacolada one they bring out and the shea butter one. Creating a scrapbook is a great way to capture memories, totally loving your photos, the doggo is super cute!!!

      Thank you so much! The Body Shop has some really amazing products, and the Pina Colada range is definitely one of the best. It really is. Thank you so much, and he used to be so little haha!xx

  17. Sophie says:

    Loved reading this favourites post! I was tossing up between the Urban Decay All Nighter setting spray and the TooFaced Hangover Primer but ended up going with the setting spray. If you think it’s something you might do in the future I would definitely be interested to read an in-depth review of the Hangover primer. I also worked with Printiki last year and I really loved the photos I got! They’re super cute and worked really well to add a bit of decor to my room.

      Thank you so much! I’ll definitely do a review on it. Especially if it’s something you’d like to see. So happy that you got to work with them too, they’re amazing aren’t they?!xx

  18. Charlotte says:

  20. Naya says:

    That’s a beautiful roundup, Hannah! Again, congrats to your mom – looks like you guys had so much fun! I also am very curious about CP highlighters, I need to try them this year too as glitter doesn’t scare me (magpie here) haha.

  21. I LOVE that you were able to get to the beach and enjoy yourself! We are honestly our own worst enemies when it comes to body confidence, and it can completely take away experiences we’re meant to enjoy. And your mom’s wedding looks like a BLAST!

    I used to work at The Body Shop and I’d put that damn Coconut Milk on every day!!! I love it soo much and it’s such a beautiful summery smell. Their lightening drops are brilliant too, I also own their illuminating drops but I can’t say they’re even half as good unfortunately. So glad you’ve started to enjoy the beach too, it’s such a lovely and relaxing place once you get past the fact that no one really cares what you look like 🙂 I used to struggle too!
    Alice Xx

    • luxuryblush says:

      I don’t blame you at all, it smells amazing and works really well too! It’s a shame the illuminating drops aren’t as good. Thank you, and that’s so true. Once you get past that you really start enjoying yourself. Glad you don’t struggle with it anymore either xx

  23. Georgia says:

    I love The Body Shop coconut products! I love the shower cream so I might have to give the body milks a try too!

  24. Kristy says:

    Some amazing favourites Hannah, going to the beach in January sounds like a dream and I’m glad you were able to enjoy it. I love the UD Naked palette too but definitely don’t use it enough these days xx

  25. Sneha says:

    The original Naked is still my favourite too! I actually got Naked 2 before I got 1, but defnitely use the first one more. Every colour works so well on its own or blended with others. Smog and Toasted are probably my favourites, and I LOVE that black. 😀

  26. Yiota says:

    Looks like you had so much fun at your mum’s wedding! Love the red bridesmaid dresses, they are so chic and the colour is perfect for a wedding!! xx


  27. You have some fab products here Hannah, I didn’t know lightening drops exist! I’ve seen darkening drops but not these. I’ve been really impressed with the body shop products I see on my insra’ Feed. I always forget to go in, but years ago it was the place to be !

    Thanks for sharing.

    • luxuryblush says:

      Thank you so much! If you struggle to get a perfect match then they’re definitely worth a try. It definitely went down in popularity, but the products are still so good. No problem, thank you for stopping by xx

  28. Alex says:

    Such pretty bridesmaids dresses! I also LOVE the super shock highlighters from Colourpop! I literally use lightening drops with my foundation like ALL THE TIME.
    Great post!
