Hi everyone, let me just start by saying Happy New Year to you all! Hope you had a great NYE!
I don’t know why, but New Years Day always feels like a Sunday to me – a day for resting, sitting in front of the TV with a good movie after a good pamper session…so that is what I have decided to do today!
I got inspiration from a lot of Christmas goodies and have put together a little post of how I traditionally like to pamper myself J
- THE BATH
For Christmas, I got this cute little box of goodies from Lush filled with loads of my favourite Lush products so decided to go for the Butterball Bath Ballistic today (one of their best sellers). This is vanilla scented and has quite a sweet smell to it but not too sweet. I love sweet scented things so I really like this. It also has cocoa butter in it so makes your skin feel so soft afterwards. When it dissolves in the water it doesn’t have the wow factor as the water doesn’t really appear to change in colour and the scent isn’t very strong but trust me you will feel this working on your skin from the moment you step in the bath tub so don’t be put off!
2. THE HAIR
When I am having a pamper day I like to use a good leave in conditioning treatment whilst I have a bath. I am currently in the market for some new hair products as I seem to be stuck in a hair care rut! That said though at the moment, I love Must conditioner as a leave in treatment when I am having a pamper session. This is made by the Rainbow Room International where I get my hair styled. Unfortunately, this group only has salons in Scotland at the moment but you can order online hereand I would really recommend this conditioner. This is actually a hair and skin moisturiser that I use all year but it is really good for deep conditioning.
3. THE SCRUB
I have loads of Soap & Glory products and one of my all time favourites has to be the Breakfast Scrub. This is ah-ma-zing. It is an oat, shea butter and sugar body smoother and has banana, almonds and honey extracts and leaves your skin incredibly smooth. As the main ingredient is sugar this product is very grainy and does an amazing job at exfoliating. I think this has to be my current favourite exfoliator and the fact that it smells like maple syrup is an extra bonus, however I do need to keep reminding myself that this must not be eaten!!
4. THE MOISTURISER
Another of my favourite Soap & Glory products is The Righteous Butter. This has been a staple product in my bathroom for a long time now and I seem to keep re-buying it as I just love it. The consistency is quite thick but it absorbs into your skin, leaving it feeling like velvet and doesn’t leave your skin feeling sticky. As with all Soap & Glory products, it smells gorgeous. LOVE this.
5. THE FACE MASK
A new face mask I’ve recently been trying is the REN Glycolactic Radiance Renewal Mask. I actually got this in one of my Glossy Boxes a couple of months ago and intend to do a full review once I use it up (which shouldn’t take too long as it is only 15mls). Although I have only used this a couple of times I am really liking it. The smell is pretty ‘potent’ shall we say, but leaves my skin feeling super soft and radiant.
6. THE ONESIE
After bath, hair, scrub and face mask is done the only thing left to do is jump into my new onesie! I got this as a Christmas present and I cannot tell you how cosy it is I absolutely love it and think I will be wearing it a lot on lazy Sundays. It even has little ears hehe! Oh and the label inside says “…for early birds that wake up looking beautiful”, IF ONLY!! ha
7. THE NAILS
Lastly, no pamper session would be complete without a mini mani and polish, whilst kicking back and watching some early seasons of SATC. Today, I have chosen Rimmel Lasting Finish in 193 Black Cherries which has been one of my go to shades this winter.
I hope you have enjoyed reading about my little pamper day!
How do you pamper yourself? Would love to hear of any recommendations you might have J
