My Perfect Pamper Evening
Hi ladies, how are you all?
Life can get hectic and stressful, so a nice pamper session every now and then is pretty necessary to keep ourselves sane! I’ve been busy the last few weeks and since this is one my first weekends I’ve had off in a while, I thought it’s the perfect time to steal an hour or two to myself and have a good old pamper… Is there anything better? 😉
First thing’s first, I light a candle (or three!). If you don’t already know, I’m obsessed with candles. There’s just something so relaxing and cosy about lit candles when you want to unwind. I’m loving the ‘LoveOlli’ candles at the mo – they smell divine!
While my bubble bath is running, I love to put on the Glamglow Youthmud Tinglexfoliate facemask. This is essentially a ‘facial in a jar’. Leave it on your face for 10 minutes, and when you wash it off, your skin will feel soo soft and fresh… I promise you! Then I like to apply the Glamglow Thirstymud, which really hydrates and calms the skin. It smells fab too, fyi! Your face will be in tip-top condition!
It’s always a good idea to exfoliate your body while you’re in the bath just to get rid of dead skin cells or any leftover/unwanted tan. I swear by Cocoa Brown’s Tough Stuff.
Then I generously apply Soap & Glory Righteous Body Butter all over my body to really moisturise the skin. This contains shea butter and aloe vera so it has a really nice fresh scent that’s not overpowering. It quickly absorbs and sinks into the skin, unlike other scented body butters I’ve used in the past.
For my hair, I like to apply The Show treatment from Harvey Nichols. This is a lovely luxurious product that you can use on dry or wet hair. It’s amazing – unlike other oil treatments, it doesn’t leave a greasy residue in the hair. I usually use about 3 drops and then wrap my hair in a hot towel, or when I’m feeling lazy, I tie my hair up and leave it in overnight.
Two face serums I’m loving at the moment are the Clarins Blue Orchid Face Treatment Oil and Kiehl’s Daily Reviving Concentrate. For ultra pampering, I’ll apply either product to my face.
Then it’s time for lip balm. This particular one in my opinion, is the best lip balm EVER… It’s the Nuxe Reve de Miel. You can use this everyday (I usually do) but it’s lovely to apply before bed too!
What pamper night would be complete without snuggling up in cosy pjs and fluffy socks? Penneys do the best ones, in my opinion – I love them!
And then last but not least, I pour myself a nice glass of wine and munch on some chocolate… Ah, bliss! 😉
What do you do to unwind after a busy week?
