I know it’s only Tuesday, but more so recently rather than having a Sunday night pamper I will have one in the middle of the week as it gives me a little break from the hustle bustle of a busy week, and allows a nice evening of relaxation.
|& Other Stories Punk Bouquet Body Scrub – & Other Stories (£7), Aroma Works Body Oil – Aroma Works (£32.50), The Body Shop Shea Body Butter – The Body Shop (£13), Caudalie Gentle Cleansing Milk – Escentual (£16), Origins Drink Up 10-minute Mask – Boots (£22)|
Usually i’ll start by running myself a lovely hot bath, baths aren’t my favourite but every now and then a good soak is exactly what I need. Usually i’d opt for a Lush bath bomb of some sort, but more so recently i’ve been using bath oils as I find that they provide the ultimate relaxation. I’ve had a few samples lying around, and i’ve loved using the Aromatherapy Associates Bath Oil and the Aroma Works Body Oil. Both of these give off such a soothing fragrance that puts in the ultimate relaxed mood, whilst also giving my skin the burst of moisture that it needs, leaving my skin feeling so soft.
Whilst in the bath I like to get down and gritty with a good scrub, and recently i’ve rekindled my love for the & Other Stories Punk Bouquet Body Scrub. This stuff isn’t like your ordinary scrub, it lathers up really nice whilst also working to give my skin the scrub that it needs. This one also smells amazing, if you’re ever able to pop in store make sure you give this a whiff. Once i’ve had a good soak and done all the other bits and bobs that come with a bath, i’ll crack out a body butter. At the minute The Body Shop Shea Butter has been my go to as I love the smell of shea butter and this leaves my skin feeling lovely, especially after giving them a shave.
I’ll then move onto skin, starting by giving my face a gentle cleanse using the Caudalie Gentle Cleansing Milk, one i’ve rekindled my love for recently. It just works to remove any kind of makeup without irritating the skin, and just gives an overall lovely cleanse. I’ll then whack on a face mask, my favourite is the Origins Drink Up 10-minute Mask. I love this as it infuses moisture into my skin without having to faff around. I also really love the smell of this, it’s like spreading apricot yoghurt all over my face haha!
So that is my quick mid week pamper, which is a lovely way of taking a break from a busy week.
What products do you opt for when having a good pamper?
