Whether it’s for a Sunday pamper, time out to relax or a chance to get over the final moments of a cold, ensuring your cupboards and bathroom storage have a few key luxurious products to transport you to a top notch spa is essential. Everyone needs R&R time as with work schedules getting more hectic and days passing by like seconds, it can be easy to forget to take some time out just for yourself. After spending the past two days wrapped up under my duvet with a box of tissues by my side, today is all amount indulging in all those pamper products to help me feel right as rain and ready to head back to work.
Setting the Scene – you can’t start a full on pamper session without creating the perfect environment. Firstly I run a bath and get the bubbles going with my favourite shower gel, this Strawberry Sundae from The Little Bubble Co is cheep as chips yet lathers up to give you a full bathtub brimming with bubbly goodness. Before dipping my toe into the warm water I light a candle to really set the mood. I usually opt for the Neom candle Happiness* as the white neroli, mimosa and lemon fills the room and lifts all your troubles away.
Treat your Skin (and nails) – from your body through to your face up top, make sure every inch gets the full pamper treatment. Whilst in the bath I pop on my most luxurious face mask in the form of the Omorovicza Depp Cleansing Mask. An utter treat I save this for a special occasion thanks to it’s pretty hefty price tag but boy does it deliver the goods. Purifying my skin without stripping it or leaving it feeling dry, pores look less congested and my face looks refreshed after a single use. Once out the bath it’s time for a enriched body cream thanks to Monu Spa* and a manicure with the Formula X Nail Varnish in Thrilling. After the final coat has dried it’s time to put on a fresh pair of pjs, jump into bed with a good book and try and forget about that alarm looming in the morning.
