What CF's Beauty Editor Is Shopping This January

If the new year feels like the perfect time to revamp your beauty routine, Citizen Femme’s beauty editor, Becki Murray, has all the recommendations you need, with her round-up of the best new beauty launches for January.

To help you start 2024 in style, there’s limited edition make-up from Charlotte Tilbury, Diptyque’s new indulgent hand cream, and a winter sun bodycare essential, all sure to beautify your vanity case this year. These are the best January beauty launches that our team are using – and loving – right now.


At-home beauty devices are just getting better and better, and Lightinderm is the latest example. The facial tool not only offers an effective tension-relieving, cheekbone-lifting deep massage, but it also has the option of red, green, blue and infrared LED light therapy, plus tailored serums. That means it can help you target your specific skin concerns, brightening, depuffing and smoothing as it does so.


I intend to lift both my eyes and my mood this January with Charlotte Tilbury's latest limited edition palette, which aims to keep the sparkle of the festive period alive for a little while longer. Likely to become another sell-out collector's item, the warm golden pink, terracotta and gold shimmers will wake-up even the sleepiest eyes for our return to the office.

Christmas may be over but this limited-edition palette from Charlotte Tilbury will help keep the sparkle of the festive period alive throughout January.


Diptyque's classic Fleur de Peau scent is now available as a hand cream and the fragrance really is divine. That combined with the soothing nature of aloe vera and macadamia oil for my dry, chapped hands, makes this a handbag essential that I won't be without this winter.


With both back-to-work busyness and the wintry weather taking a toll, this luxurious mask is like a revitalising hug for your dry and dull skin. The refreshing gel-textured product combines skin-soothing red camellia extract with exfoliating AHAs, meaning you can achieve a brighter, glowing complexion while giving yourself 15 minutes of much-needed skincare-based self-care.


It's not very often that many of us get overally excited about conditioner, but Pantene really made us beauty editors sit and listen with its new launch. This range of four affordable products not only hides damage with a super glossy, hydrated finish, but actively helps protect your hair as it grows, stopping breakage before it starts.


Dr. Maryam Zamani, founder of MZ Skin, is one of our favourite skin experts due to her luxurious line of skin-boosting products. For the latest addition to the line-up, she's turned her experienced hand to line-reducing retinol, and this formula is specifically designed to be suitable for those trying the anti-ageing hero ingredient for the first time.

I absolutely adore the scent of Jurlique products and the fact that their formulas are powered by beautiful botanical ingredients. This mask is coming with me on all my January travels to help keep puffy skin at bay, thanks to its rich texture and firming and hydrating benefits.


Faking your way to a summertime glow has never been easier with this lightweight mist that is the perfect way to prep for any winter sun getaways. You can achieve a rich, radiant colour with no guide colour transfer and lots of hydrating ingredients such as vitamin E and mango to make patchiness a thing of the past.


If, like me, you tend to struggle to travel with your favourite fragrances, Jo Malone CBE's Jo Loves fragrance paintbrush solution is for you. Now available in the warm yet invigorating Amber, Lime & Bergamot best-seller, you simply swish the scent onto your pulse points with no need for big, heavy glass flacons.



Bubble Skincare has taken the UK market by storm (via Boots) since it came over from Stateside, but this eye serum might just be my favourite yet. It takes a multi-pronged approach to fighting dark circles, with vitamin C, turmeric, green tea and hero antioxidant resveratrol all lending a powerful helping hand.

Make light work of tackling dark circles with Bubble Skincare’s latest serum that contains a whole host of brightening ingredients.


Kiss dry, chapped lips goodbye with this 100% natural, nourishing balm that uses upcycled hemp seed oil alongside shea butter for a sustainable and richly hydrating treat. It has a really lovely glossy but not sticky finish too, so is my top pick if you're aiming for understated glamour for your day-to-day this winter.
