After a super busy week, or maybe just a bad day, is there anything better than to go home and take a night to yourself and relax? A pamper evening is the perfect thing to do! Personaly, I try to take an hour or two every week to do a bit of a beauty regime, just to pep myself up. I switch off from everything online, and enjoy some quality “me” time.I thought I’d take you through my typical pamper evening and share some of my favorite “essentials”.
The first thing that I’ll do ,when I want to have a pamper evening, is start to run my bath. A bath (or a shower if you don’t fit in the bathtub) is the perfect thing for pamper evening because it is so relaxing! Once your bath has started running, obviously you light a few candles, just to set the mood, what ever mood that may be. I love bath and body works candles , they are amazing such a nice smell and it last a very long time.
The thing I love to put in my bath for the pamper evening, firstly is the lush bubble bath, which you crumble underneath running water and it makes tons and tons of bubbles. I really like the smell of this one, it’s not to sweet, and it’s not to florally or fruity, it’s just a nice calming smell. I also pop in a lush bath bomb (I usually use the dragon egg one), these bath bomb are really beneficial for the skin, and they always make my skin feel nice and soft.
Once clean, it’s time to hydrate, I usually drink a big glass of ice cold water, then I use my lotion, or body butter. Right now I use the vineyard peach friends from the body shop. Love the scent, and the formula is one that is intensely hydrating without being heavy or greasy.
Next I give my lips a gentle scrub, to remove any dry skin. The popcorn lip scrub from Lush (baiser soufflé in french) is ideal for nights when you want to give your pout a little extra something. Not only does it gently remove dead skin, but the oils in the scrub also help nourish and moisturize your skin at the same time (and it tastes so good!). After rinsing off the sugar scrub, I like to apply a really rich lip balm. The one I’ve been using lately is the Blistex Lip medex . It’s a fantastic drugstore lip balm, offering tons of hydration and moisture.
After that I like to give my hands and feed a good rub with my Lush soft coeur (the honeymooner) massage bar. I love everything about this massage bar, the shape, the chocolate surprise inside, the colour and of course the supreme softness of my skin that results from it’s use.
The last product I use, but definitely not the least, is one of my absolute favorite pamper item, the Boscia luminizing black mask. I feel like my skin benefits so much from this peel off mask, I love the way my skin looks and feels after using this product. It feels brighter, and less oily , my pores looks smaller, and I feel happier! I just really love this Mask!
So I hope it was helpful, let me know if this inspired you to do the same!
Love, Helene Xx
