Monthly Favorites: January 2020 Edition!

GeorginaBT's January Faves.JPG


Whew – one month down, eleven more to go in 2020, BIC! 😄 Now that we’re near the end of January, it’s time for us to share our favorite beauty products of the month. I know many of us are following beauty-related new year’s resolutions like finally finishing up a stash of products or going on beauty low-buys, so I’m extremely curious what products made it out on top for you this month. Whether it’s skincare, hair care, makeup, or fragrance, the Beauty Insider Community would love to know your favorites.


Here are my January favorites:

Re: Monthly Favorites: January 2020 Edition!

@l8totheparty great favorites!! DE yes!!

Re: Monthly Favorites: January 2020 Edition!

I've been using the NARS Soft Matte Concealer for years and it's the best at coverage blemishes/discoloration and not bringing attention to them because it has a matte finish. 

Re: Monthly Favorites: January 2020 Edition!

@l8totheparty What great choices! That is my favorite essence, I always tend to come back to it!



Re: Monthly Favorites: January 2020 Edition!

I've been loving these:

Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare Alpha Beta® Pore Perfecting & Refining Serum 1 oz/ 30 mL

CHARLOTTE TILBURY - Magic Away Concealer - 2 Fair

Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Flawless Filter 2 - Fair


Elta MD - UV clear

Re: Monthly Favorites: January 2020 Edition!

I totally love the CT concealer!! @Cyncynn 

Re: Monthly Favorites: January 2020 Edition!

Love your choices for faves @Cyncynn! The CT base products are wonderful. Not sure how I haven’t seen that DDG serum until now but it looks like something I should look into more. 🤩 

Re: Monthly Favorites: January 2020 Edition!


Thank you! I have a soft spot in my heart for everything CT, but that one and her brow gel are my absolute HG from the brand.


It's a very good serum and even though I use some sensitizing prescription products, this was very gentle and did not irritate my skin.

Their new anti stress serum (there's a current promo for it) is also very nice - I may or may not have placed a second order to get another one. 😉 You have to massage that one in to 'activate' the ingredients.

Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare Stress Rescue Super Serum with Niacinamide 1 oz/ 30 mL

Re: Monthly Favorites: January 2020 Edition!

@Cyncynn SOMEDAY I'm finally going to splurge on theCharlotte Tilbury Hollywood Flawless Filter 4 - Medium.   Everyone and their mother raves about it! 

Re: Monthly Favorites: January 2020 Edition!

@CookieGirl1 I have used it since it first was released and highly recommend it

Re: Monthly Favorites: January 2020 Edition!

@CookieGirl1  It's so versatile and I can't think of anything in the market quite like it either. You should ask for a sample next time you're at sephora 😉

Re: Monthly Favorites: January 2020 Edition!

@Cyncynn I wish!  The closest Sephora to me is one inside JCP and they don't carry CT.  I'm not sure why it's never occurred to me to ask for a sample of it when I go out of town and visit a larger Sephora...

Re: Monthly Favorites: January 2020 Edition!

@CookieGirl1 You can always ask for a sample at Nordstrom or Bloomingdales

Re: Monthly Favorites: January 2020 Edition!

@SportyGirly125 unfortunately the nearest full sized Sephora and Nordstrom stores are about 75 miles away so that's why I pretty much have to wait until I travel or go out of town for work. BUT I do go out of town for work pretty frequently so I just need to actually remember to request a sample of that when I get a chance. 

Re: Monthly Favorites: January 2020 Edition!

@Cyncynn Good to hear you've been reaching for the CT! A makeup artist at Sephora applied Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Longwear Foundation 7.5 Neutral on me and I was obsessed - just need to finish up my Fenty before I pick it up. 🙂


Btw, totally thought of you when I picked up Olaplex No. 3 Hair Repair Perfector 3.3 oz / 100 mL. MAJOR regret not buying the Olaplex set during the holiday...! 

Re: Monthly Favorites: January 2020 Edition!

@GeorginaBT  That foundation is next on my list - absolutely love the coverage from the sample I've been using! This is definitely CT's best foundation IMO. It looks gorgeous mixing with the hollywood flawless filter too!


Glad you like the Olaplex n.3  ❤️ It makes a big difference on the hair with regular use!

Re: Monthly Favorites: January 2020 Edition!

I just started using the Dr. Dennis Gross Pore Perfecting & Refining Serum last week, and I am absolutely loving it so far! @Cyncynn. I really like the texture and a little bit goes a long way for me. 


Best regards,

Laurie 🙂 

Re: Monthly Favorites: January 2020 Edition!


I am glad you are enjoying it too. Layers well with other products and its surprisingly gentle too.
