Hi everyone! The days are getting shorter and the nights are getting darker and it can be, let’s face it, miserable. I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to share with you some of the products I have been loving for a good old, at home, pamper session. We all need a little pick me up, especially this time of year, and sometimes we just need to take an evening to ourselves to make ourselves feel human again. For me this is usually a Sunday, where I can have a complete reset before the new week begins. I don’t do this routine every single week because honestly, who has time for that? But on those weeks where I feel like I just need everything sorting, this is what I do….
Light some candles
The first thing I do is make my home feel really cosy by lighting some of my favourite candles. My current favourites are the Spiced Pumpkin and Oriental spice scents from The Flame Game Candle Company (own brand).
I like to go a little bit mask crazy! To start, I cleanse my face and then apply an eye mask, and while this is on I also like to apply a foot pack, my favourite ones being the Superdrug own sock packs. After this I apply a face mask to the rest of my face, and recently I have been loving this Beauty Bay skin fixer clay mask. This is a really good mask if you suffer from breakouts as it really helps to clear your skin.
While my mask is on, I do my gel nails using the Mylee gel nail kit. This makes for a great alternative to going to the nail salon and it’s a much cheaper, and I find they last so much longer than normal nail polish. This is so easy to do as well!
Bubble Bath and hair mask
I love to have a nice hot bubble bath when I want to pamper myself. Before the bath, I wash my hair and then apply the Garnier hair food hair mask for whilst I’m sat in the bath. My favourite products for the bath are the Bubble Trouble bath bombs.
Eyebrows and face
When I’m done in the bath, I wash out the mask and brush my hair, applying my normal heat spray. I pop on a nose pore strip whilst I dry my hair. After this, I like to make sure my eyebrows are looking good by giving them a quick pluck and applying the Eyelure dyebrow kit in the shade dark brown. I have used this product for years for whenever I can’t get to my eyebrow appointments for whatever reason. I also love to go over my face with these little face razors I got on ebay. This removes the top dead layer of skin and also all your peach fuzz, which makes your face so smooth.
I will admit I’ve never waxed my own legs before, but I recently received this sugar wax and it’s honestly a game changer. This is by the brand Sugar Coated and the wax is literally just made of sugar. They’re 100% vegan and cruelty free, and they’re really gentle on the skin, and also very effective at removing all the hairs. I really love using this product and I’ve already ordered some more of this for when this runs out.
Last but not least, before bed I apply my fake tan. I have been loving the St. Moriz clear tanning mousse in medium dark. I then wash it off in the morning and I’m left with a lovely tanned glow. I have also recently been using the St. Moriz face tanning serum and I’m really liking it. I mix it in with my moisturiser over night and then wash it off in the morning.
