H appy New Year and welcome back to this month on the Cult Edit! The office brings you our favourites products/items which have helped motivate and prepare us for the New Year.
We want this year to be the best yet so take a look at our products that have helped kick start our motivation…
January means two things: back to work and cold weather. With a new work year comes new projects and lots of planning and deadlines, and with cold weather comes dry skin. Using Neom’s De-stress body oil every evening really helps me to relax and also moisturises my dry limbs. My skin is nourished with this luxuriously rich oil, and the unbelievably calming blend of essential oils in the De-stress range literally does what it says on the tin; I’m left feeling calm and any stress from the day is alleviated.

How to feel more motivated than after a good night’s sleep?
The Serene Sleep Aromatherapy Collection prepared me for my New Year plans and goals. After a bath using the ‘Relax’ body wash eased my muscles and the ‘Deep Relax Rollerball’ ensured I was dozing away getting ready for exciting 2020! This is also perfect for a gift and the velvet emerald bag that the products come in make the whole set feel very luxurious.

I am a sucker for a Diary and couldn’t wait to get my hands on a 2020 one. How else would you get mentally and physically prepped for the New Year?
For someone who gets a diary every year, there’s nothing better than adding that little touch of personalisation. My go-to for diaries has to be Papier; their high-quality, gorgeous and affordable diaries will have you buying multiple at a time! This sturdy diary is guaranteed to take you all the way through to 2021. (If you’re looking for a 2020 diary but aren’t sure where to go, read our ‘2020 Diaries to Kickstart your Year’ article!

I like to start the year off with a good cleansing routine and with the help of MONUSKIN, their gentle cleanser does just that. This milky product calms and soothes the skin, whilst restoring moisture for a balanced complexion. Containing an aromatic blend of Rose and Geranium Essential Oils coupled with Wheat Germ, Peach Kernel and Coconut Oil to encourage natural hydration whilst comforting and nourishing the skin. The perfect way to kick start the year!

The January cold brings the desire to cozy up inside with a hot drink to warm us up. This collection box of Pukka herbal teas provides a versatile range of flavours for any fussy tea drinker. Replace the caffeine rush with a herbal tea, especially effective at night, to send you off into a relaxed sleep. This specific collection includes; Elderberry & Echinacea, Lemon Ginger & Manuka Honey, Night Time, Three Mint. I’m loving it!

I’m really picky when it comes to perfumes as most of them gives me a headache… I rarely wear them unless they don’t make me feel dizzy and have a nice scent. Because of this I normally go for body sprays instead, however last year I tried the Agent Provocateur Fatale Pink and I was a huge fan! I wanted to start off this year by finding another perfume that I will really like all year long and so I went out to sample different perfumes from all the brands i’d had my eyes on. It took me a while to decide, but I went for the BOSS The Scent For Her eau de toilette. Smells good, doesn’t make me feel ill, therefore it’s a winner.

When it comes to January (and when we all generally attempt to get our lives in order) I always opt for an inspirational book to kickstart my motivation streak. After reading his debut book ‘First Man In’ last year, my 2020 recommendation is ‘The Fear Bubble by Ant Middleton’. Former Marine and frontman of Channel 4’s SAS: Who Dares Wins, both Ant’s books focus on his life experiences in the special forces and how to use his disciplined mindset in everyday life to overcome obstacles and push yourself and harness your fear into a positive. Inspirational reading to make you up your game.

Lots of us feel like we’re drinking a bit too much, or too often, or just like we could do with some time off. I’ve been meaning to cut down on my drinking for a while and the New Year seemed to be the perfect excuse/opportunity to do so and try doing the Dry January Challenge. The ‘DrinkFreeDays’ app has made my journey a lot easier. It allows you to track your drink free days but also gives you tips to help you control your drinking and therefore can be used not only in January but all year long!
