Sunday Pamper Sessions

Winter Sundays mean one thing for me: pampering! So here are my pampering essentials and things I love to do to relax...



Bath

This is number 1 on my list. I usually stick to showers, as bath products generally aren't good for my body, but every so often I'll buy myself a bath bomb or fizz from Lush (my favourite at the moment is Candy Mountain) and go for it. I like to use bars of soap for baths, I love Lush's Honey I Washed the Kids and Bomb Cosmetics' Aztec Gold.

Fragrance


My taste in candles is usually foodie/rich scents, which I don't find too relaxing. For a pampering session I'll usually use my Body Shop Oil Burner (they don't seem to do mine any more so I've linked to a similar one for the same price) and my favourite oil from them is Sandalwood & Ginger.

Music

I usually go for classical music, I love the Islands Collection by Ludovico Einaudi. I use my HDMX Jam Speaker, which connects via bluetooth to my phone, so I can keep it all away from the water!

Reading Material

Whatever's on my Kindle or (if I'm reading a pretty unrelaxing book!) a magazine like Grazia, Look, Cosmopolitan or (this week) Elle.

Face Mask

I like to have a face mask on whilst I relax in the bath. My current favourite is Lush Cupcake. I try not to loose track of time, as it really dries out your skin if you leave them on too long!


Good to go...

Nails

I paint my nails before I settle down to read. I used to always do them just before I left the house but it usually goes wrong when I rush it. If you do your nails whilst you're settling down to read you aren't waiting around wishing for them to be dry. My favourite shade at the moment is Barry M's Hi Shine Gelly Nail Paint in Lychee, which I seal in with their Top & Base Coat.

Facial Massage

My day ends with a facial massage before bed. I use the DHC Deep Cleansing Oil and I'll usually follow along with a Youtube video, such as this or this.

How do you like to relax and wind down? Have a lovely Sunday :)

  3. Love this post! Pretty much identical Sunday pamper routine - though I am a Netflix addict so there's usually a couple episodes of something I'm currently watching!
