Treat Yourself to a Pamper Night



Every once in a while you have got to treat yourself to a pamper night to relax, de stress and just wash any worries you may have away.

Sunday night, I decided to light a candle, make myself a lovely bubble bath and have a little pamper routine. My skin is in quite poor condition at the moment, I have broken out so much, it is very tired and the circles under my eyes are just ridiculous - some of this is down to poor diet and lack of sleep I have to admit.

I'm still working on a skincare routine so please don't slap my wrists for the fact that I have used two cleansers (use monkey with hands over face emoji). I firstly used the 'nspa' cleansing gel to remove my make up - it is a thick, oily substance so it really sticks to the make up and helps it glide off the face. I then used my newest product which is the Nip and Fab glycolic cleanser, I've always wanted to try this brand - and maybe it has a reason to Kylie Jenner advertising it once on her Instagram. It such a thick, oily and tacky texture which blends better with a damp face and smells like grapefruit so you have got to like it. I have noticed a huge difference to my skin since using this product.

The next step was to use the face mask, to say it is calming clay, I wasn't so sure about this the first time I used it, my face felt like it was on fire. But I stuck at it and used it again on Sunday and I may have been a little over dramatic, there are four ingredients to targets different areas:
  1. Aloe Vera - help to reduce skin inflammation and provides moisture
  2. Oatmeal - helps relieve skin dryness and discomfort
  3. Chamomile Extract - helps soothe and calm sensitive skin
  4. Rose Extract - helps minimise redness caused by enlarged capillaries

After this I went back to my usual routine of using the Soap & Glory Sugar Crush body scrub, washed my hair and covered myself in a lot of lotions to try and beat this fatigued and dry skin, all of them from the brand Soap & Glory.

What else better than to snuggle up on the settee with my favourite blanket from Primark, a big glass of water to hydrate the skin and then paint my nails. I never go for a red nail polish, it's a little out of my comfort zone but for some reason I am absolutely loving this Ted Baker red shade, its so easy to apply and lasts for days.

It would be great to hear what products you like using in your pamper routine. Let me know in the comments or on Twitter.

  3. You should look at the aztec indian healing clay, you can literally feel it pulsating and it has helped my skin because I have had a bit of a breakout recently too. I love anything soap and glory, they can literally do no wrong in my eyes! I received the gift box last year at xmas and I'm still getting through it all, their stuff lasts ages!

    1. I might have to try that as my skin has broken out even more, nothing seems to be working at the moment. If its the gift box set I had, its amazing and I cannot wait to see what they offer this year. xx
