My Pamper Evening Routine

Whether I've had a long week at work or I'm just generally feeling a tad run down, I like to indulge in a bit of a pampering sesh! I always mix it up when it comes to the products I use just to keep my pamper nights exciting but these are the latest products I've been using.

I'm not much of a bath person (although hand me a Lush bath bomb and I'd be easily persuaded!) so I kick my pamper evening off with a hot shower and a nice candle.  I've been using the Imperial Leather foamburst body wash and I'm really loving it. It actually doubles as a shaving foam and has that mousse/shaving foam consistency.  The body wash creates tons of bubbles and leaves you and your bathroom smelling incredible. I can't recommend the honey & almond milk scent enough.

What pamper session would be complete without a hair mask?! After using my shampoo and conditioner of choice, I smother my hair with the TRESemme keratin smooth mask and leave it to work it's magic for around 20 minutes. That may sound extreme but the silky soft hair at the end of it is definitely worth it!

I find moisturising such a chore but I love how it makes my skin feel - a catch 22 right there! For days when I'm being lazy, I'll use the Soap and Glory Girligo moisturising mist. You literally spray it on, rub it in and hey presto - moisturised skin in 30 seconds!  I've been trying out the Dove purely pampering body cream which is nice when you want to smell more fresh than sweet/floral. 

I then use a Biore nose strip to keep those pesky blackheads at bay, apply some lip balm and smother my face in Sudocrem until I resemble Casper.  Someone once told me that Sudocrem was actually bad for your skin but it always leaves my face feeling super soft!

I then like to give my hands and feet a bit of a treat! I'm yet to find a better foot cream than Heel Genius so I tend to stick to it like glue but if it ain't broke, don't fix it and all that. The L'Occitane hand cream is something I've had knocking around for ages so I'm trying to use it up but in all honesty,  I'm not overly keen on it!

No pamper session would ever be complete without a bit of nail painting so I take time out to make sure my nails are looking gorge. I'm a little obsessed with the latest offerings from Barry M at the moment and they've taken over my love for Models Own especially the glitter polish above in 'Treasure Chest' - I can't get enough of it!

Once I'm feeling suitably relaxed, I pop on my pyjamas, make myself a hot chocolate, grab even more chocolate and settle down to watch a nice film.  I would definitely recommend Like Crazy if you've got Netflix.  It's one of those films that makes you feel every emotion and you don't quite know how to feel when it ends.

What do your pamper evenings consist of?
