Sometimes I get the urge to have a pamper night... a night to myself to indulge in products, relaxation and forget about the world (and the Internet).
I thought I'd show you an example of the products I would use during one of my pamper evenings.
The first thing I'd do is wash my hands and remove ALL my makeup so I can start from scratch. I'd then run the bath (extra hot) and light a candle; this time I used one from Northumbrian Candleworks, which is a pure soy wax candle. I use some of the Elemis bath milk, which is a lovely soft, creamy product. If it was a shower kind of night I'd be using the L'Occitaine shower oil. Whilst I'm in the bath I apply the Peptolash (I still haven't decided if this works or not) and smother my face in the Origins Drink Up Intensive mask. This mask always relaxes me as it feels so nice on and smells amazing. I also use this time to give my hair a pre-shampoo treatment using the Philip Kingsley Elasticizer. After I've coated my dry hair I put it all up in my new M&S hair turban. I then exfoliate my entire body with the NEOM body scrub (this usually involves standing up in the bath and nearly killing myself) which is my favourite thing to do as it leaves me feeling so soft and clean. After exfoliating I shave my legs, which isn't very glamourous... but you know, it's gotta be done! Then it's 20 minutes of relaxation...
After my bath I sometimes use a body cream or gradual tanner, but on this occasion I used the NEOM body oil which is incredible! I have long, thick hair so washing my hair whilst in the bath isn't an option, so I wash it over the bath once I'm in my PJs. I wash out the pre-shampoo treatment and then use the Ojon shampoo and conditioner which leaves my hair in really good quality. I also love the Ojon hair mask which I will often use instead of the Philip Kingsley. If I am doing my hair curly I use the Regis curl lock cream and if it's straight I like to use an oil. The Jo Hansford oil is a really lovely one and makes my hair look nice and shiny.
The final part of my pamper evening includes sitting on the sofa, watching good (crap) TV, using my favourite Neal's Yard hand cream and NUXE lip balm and doing my nails.
Wow... that's a lot of writing. I hope this was slightly interesting for some of you. It's made me want to jump in the bath just talking about it! If you ever have a tough day or you're feeling a little stressed, I'd highly recommend pampering yourself and using a million products... it really helps!
Do you have a pamper evening routine?
