So I don't often have a pamper evening but when I do I make sure to make the most of it and enjoy myself. I'm going to share with you some products and things I like to do when I'm trying to have a chilled and relaxing evening.
Sounds pretty basic right? Well I usually don't have time to properly enjoy a bath so I'm more likely to have a shower so when I'm having my pamper evening I love to have a long soak in the bath. I absolutely love bath bombs - They smell so nice and turn the water different colours but they also make your skin feel so nice and smooth. I love bath bombs from lush.com and bombcosmetics.co.uk.
Whilst I'm in the bath I love to use a body scrub, my favourite is from Soap and Glory and it's their Sugar Crush body scrub. Not only does this smell gorgeous and fresh but it really does a great job at exfoliating your skin and I'm a regular fake tanner so this gets everything off.
So when I finally get out of the bath and I'm just chilling in my dressing gown I love to apply a face mask. The one that I have been loving recently is from Garnier and it is their Moisture Bomb Tissue Mask. I am someone that has dry skin that can be pretty problematic in the sense that I get spots so my usual everyday night routine consists of me using spot treatments and things like that which can be pretty harsh on the skin. So this mask is great because it is seriously moisturising, and my skin feels softer and smoother and just looks more healthy and not quite so flat.
I pretty much have dry skin everywhere so I do really try and moisturise everyday but.. That unfortunately doesn't always happen, so when I'm having a pamper evening I really enjoy taking my time to moisture my whole body. The moisturiser that I love to use is from Vaseline and it is their Intensive Care Cocoa Lotion. I love the smell of this and it really helps give my skin a natural healthy glow but it isn't sticky and it quickly absorbs into the skin. This moisturiser also comes in a spray version for quicker application.
Nothing makes me feel better than when I have a tan so after I've moisturised I will apply St Tropez Self Tan Bronzing Mousse all over. This tan does have a colour guard which I find is great so that you don't miss anywhere but it leaves you with a really natural sun kissed tan. For those of you that might be on a budget I also love St Moriz Professional Dark Mousse. I love to apply any fake tan with a mitt.
So once I'm done with all the above I love to light a candle. There are so many candles out there that smell lush but my favourites are from Yankee Candle. I don't really have a set scent that I love but I like to be seasonal with my candles if that makes sense? I'm not sure but I just love having winter smells in winter and fruity floral smelling candles in the summer.
My pamper routine can differ a bit around this time depending on what I fancy doing but I love reading books. My favourite types of books are self help and self love and empowering. The book I'm currently reading is She Means Business by Carrie Green and I'm really enjoying it.
If I decide that I don't want to read a book then theres nothing I love more than watching a good classic chick flick. Films like Mean Girls, Pretty Woman, Bridget Jones, Devil Wears Prada...
My last sort of thing that I love to do is for me to write down my goals and what I want to achieve in 6 months or a year. I find this very calming and I love thinking about all the possibilities and where my life may end up going.
What do you like to do when you have a pamper evening?
