January is, without a doubt, the most gloomy and miserable month of them all. It’s when resolutions are broken, our bodies attempt to recover after the holiday season, and we’re even subjected to a rainy spell (or two). If January’s got you feeling down, it’s time to turn things around. In fact, there’s nothing quite like treating yourself to a few small luxuries to release those feel-good endorphins. These seven mood-boosting beauty buys are just what the doctor ordered to banish those blues away.
