Hello beautiful people!
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! The weather here in T.O was beautiful and I was feeling very good because I got to carry out my Friday tradition which always sets me up for a great weekend. Now Fridays are a very special day to me because they are my pamper day! As I’ve said to you guys before I’m a gardener, so my job can get quite physical and most of the time I end up coming home covered in dirt. Don’t get me wrong I absolutely love my job, but at the end of the week it is so nice to have something to look forward to! When I get home from work I have a snack and then spend the next couple of hours in total bliss just for myself which I think we are all entitled to at least once a week because we all work hard!
These are the things I use to make my Friday pamper sessions incredible:
Bubble bath! What is a pamper night without a bubble bath!? Currently a couple of my favourite bubbling products are the LUSH creamy candy bubble bar and philosophy vanilla birthday cake bubble bath. Both smell super sweet and delicious and I find they leave my skin feeling nice and soft! I like to soak for around 30 minutes with a nice big glass of ice water (or vino depending how I’m feeling) and a good book or some music, such a lovely way to relax on a Friday after a long week at work!
A good scrub is a must when having a pamper evening, after I’ve done all my soaking and relaxing I go in with my Soap and Glory Flake Away scrub! It smells delicious; it’s the classic S&G scent which I absolutely love. This scrub is pretty granular which I like in a good exfoliator, the only weird thing I find with this product is that over time even with the lid on it turns this like vibrant yellow colour!( The picture doesn’t capture the colour well) So strange! Has anyone else found that with this product? Let me know in the comments! But this exfoliator gets rid of all the nasty dead skin cells I have and gets me all ready for my next essential product
Once I’ve rinsed that off I go in with the L’occitane almond shower oil which comes out of the bottle like an oil but actually lathers when you put it onto your wet skin. It’s incredibly moisturizing and it smells really nice, I think in general all products for a pamper night should just smell lovely! If you have dry skin or really just want to give your skin a nice treat I would absolutely suggest picking this stuff up because it is divine, it leaves your skin feeling soft and supple and super hydrated
By the time I’m done all that crazy stuff my bath water is usually cold so I’ll get out and apply a face mask, my skin has really been bumming me out lately so I’ve been using the Origins clear improvements mask or the Glam Glow YouthMud to add a little radiance to my skin. I’ve written about both of these in passed posts but basically the Origins masks uses clay to draw impurities out of the skin and makes pores appear smaller. This is by far one of my all-time favourite masks! If you’ve never tried this I would highly highly recommend this. I like to use Glam Glow when I feel like my skin needs a little pick me up! The tingling is a little uncomfortable but the results are very nice, my skin is definitely brighter after using this mask.
Whilst my mask is drying I’ll moisturize my skin with the Fresh sugar lychee body lotion which is my favourite lotion but it’s rather expensive for such a small bottle (26$) so I only use it when I want to treat my skin. It smells like sugar candies I used to eat when I was younger which is originally why I bought it, but the formula is so luxurious! It’s a nice and light cream that absorbs beautifully into the skin leaving it feeling refreshed and hydrated.
All these things combined create the perfect pamper night for me, which leaves me feeling relaxed with soft skin and a radiant complexion that makes me feel great about myself so I can enjoy my weekend and look forward to doing it all again the next Friday!
I hope you all have a lovely week in whatever you’re doing, and don’t forget to enjoy some sunshine and a few minutes for yourself every day!
Hit all the good buttons and let me know in the comments what some of your favourite pamper night essentials are!
Until next time, xoxo
