Today I have another lovely blogger on for a guest post! I'm a huge fan of Mollie's blog so I hope you enjoy her post as much as I did. All her social media links are at the bottom so you can follow her.
Hello everyone! I'm Mollie and I run the blog 'Mollie Manning' and I am so excited to be posting on Jasmine's blog today. I thought as Autumn is here, I want to share the products I save for those pamper evenings where I'm really allowed to treat myself.
Firstly I love to run a bath to relax and unwind, what would be a bath without a Lush bath bomb? Sakura is a lovely fresh, floral scented bath bomb with beautiful pastel colours which I love to watch melt into the bath. It doesn't contain any glitter and the colours aren't in your face either, so it's relaxing and peaceful. It also makes for a great moisturiser, I always come out feeling soft and completely refreshed. I just run a warm bath and throw this in and relax whilst it fizzes.
When I'm out of the bath, of course, I like to cleanse my face getting rid of all the grime and dirt. My all time favourite cleanser is from Oskia, their Renaissance Cleansing Gel* and it's a game changer. With it's balm/gel like texture it really hydrates my dry skin and gives my skin a beautiful glow. You know I love this sorry that it keeps cropping up in every other post but I can't get enough of it.
To moisturise my body, Sai Sei's Body Oil is the one. When I came back from holiday, I was flakey and burnt and this was the only thing that soothed my skin. As it's an oil if you spray too much things can get a little bit greasy, so I only use a little and then wait for it to dry before getting dressed. What I love is that it gives the skin a healthy sheen/glow, so I sometimes like to prep my limbs with this before I go out at night. But as we're heading into the colder months my skin needs a little TLC and this is perfect for injecting some hydration back into my skin.
My favourite product out of my whole routine has to be GlamGlow's Thirsty Mud Hydrating Treatment, this stuff is amazing and it smells amazing too! I love how it makes my skin go tingly as well. I apply this on my face and hop into bed, my favourite way to use it is like an overnight sleep mask and just after one use, I already saw wonderful results on my dry, dehydrated skin. When I woke up I was over the moon, my skin's appearance looked a thousand times better. My face didn't look or feel dry, it was hydrated and my skin was looking fresher than ever. What's best is that it doesn't take an age to sink in and it doesn't make my skin feel greasy or sticky either, it's by far my favourite overnight treatment ever.
I hope my mum's not reading because she'll kill me, yeah I wish I could afford to spend over £100 on a moisturiser - sorry mum but no I haven't been sneaking into your bathroom cupboard and secretly using this at night. The Creme De La Mer is everything that luxury is and because of that price tag you kinda would hope so. It's a really thick, heavy cream and the only thing I can compare it to us Sudocrem - a tad difference in price there I know. I warm it up in my hands and apply just a teeny bit over my face, a little does go a long way and I prefer to use this as an overnight moisture mask as it's pretty heavy for an everyday moisturiser. I switch it up between GlamGlow and this because it's nice to keep things interesting! Creme De La Mer is a super intense moisturiser and is a dry skin's saviour. This would be perfect for Winter when my skin starts looking desperately dry. It smells and feels amazing on the skin, as the consistency is so thick it does take a while to sink in but the results are worth it.
I would just like to say a massive thank you to Jasmine for letting me take over your blog for a day! I hope you enjoyed it as much as me. So that's my cosy pamper night in, just a few good products that really make me and my skin feel a whole lot better.
