Girls Pamper Day | Relax


So I'm a big believer in pamper days. 
All girls (and guys!) should invest in some me time and give your skin a little rejuvenation once in a while. 
So this is just a quick view into what I do on my pamper days :)

Diptyque Limited Edition Rosamundi Candle : MmMelting Marshmellow Moments Bath Melt

So the first thing I do is light my favourite scented candle. My candle of choice at the moment is my Diptyque Rosamundi candle which I purchased at the lovely Liberty of London. This smells simply fantastic.

I then run myself a nice hot bath and place my bath melt in the bottom of the tub and let the water surround it. This creates a lovely pink frothy foam which smells so sweet and delicious! The water changes to a lovely pink colour with a moisturising milky layer on the top which caresses your skin making it so soft.

Normally when I have a pamper I like to cleanse my hair and wash out all the crap that's built up from other hair products. So I use Tresseme Deep Cleansing Shampoo and Moisture Rich Conditioner so once I've cleansed my hair I can put some moisture back into it. This really is a lovely combo.

I'm currently in love with my latest Lush shower gel - Prince Charming. I won't go into too much detail as I've mentioned this in my last blog post (here). Just know it smells incredible and it lathers well. 

I also really like the Garnier deep pore wash. This is a gentle exfoliating face wash which really does unclog my pores and makes my face feel like it's had a good cleanse too! 

Another product I'm trying out from Lush is the Silky Underwear powder. I haven't really made up my mind of this yet. It might be that the scent is quite strong so when you've bathed in lush products you don't want anything else on your skin to mask that scent. 



Shelf Overview


So now I'm out of the bath and just taking my time in getting ready.
 On go my snuggly PJ's and slippers (I don't plan on really going anywhere on my pamper day!) I normally put on a film or in this case put on my favourite TV series which is Revenge at the moment. Have any of you been watching this?





I like to let my hair air dry when I can. I like to use Aussie leave-in-conditioner which also detangles (this smells amazing!), Tresemme root boosting spray, Tresemme keratin oil and not forgetting my purple Tangleteezer (which I seem to have misplaced!). I just brush these products through and whip my hair back and forth! Whilst singing the song obviously...

I then clip my hair back and now it's skin rejuvenating time!  

1. First of all it's all about keeping hydrated so I go and pour myself a nice ice cold glass of water. 
2. I use my Bioderma cleanser to just remove any excess make up that might have been left over on my skin. 
3. Next I use a generous amount of my Clinique moisturising gel.
4. I use my new Garnier Eye Roll On which is used to wake up tired looking eyes - I've actually fallen in love with this product - blog to follow on it shortly.
5. MAC Mineralize Charged Water - I bought this when I was in London over the summer last year, some may think this is a bit of a random product but I actually really bought into the idea of iron charged water... each to their own! I spray this over my face after my moisturiser has sunk in and I feel fresh and awake!
6. I rub on my Bubblegum Lip Scrub and hey-presto, my chapped lips have gone.
7. Apply a lip balm - I couldn't find my Carmex so this had to do!
8. Finally my hands felt rather dry so I applied some Balance Me super moisturising hand cream. This smells quite spa-like. It is rather rich and something I only apply once a day. 



Hydration is the key!


Finally, I had a little time to spare so I thought I'd paint my nails with a new polish I bought from Rimmel. I love the colour and think it's going to be my new favourite Spring Summer pick! 
What do you think?

So ladies, what do you indulge in on your pamper days? What products do you love to bask yourselves in? 

Let me know in the comments <3 

And as always, It's been a pleasure.

  1. I love pamper days...I normally do these on a Saturday evening. I start by giving myself a facial, and then into the bath with loads of bubbles, a scented candle and a glass of wine where I soak for a while. So relaxing.
