Focus / The Sunday Pamper

Sunday, 1 June 2014

I love to have a good pamper and whilst I will squeeze in a mask (or two) mid week I tend to focus all my pampering attention on a Sunday evening. 

To start I will do a proper cleanse with the Camomile Cleansing Butter, this cleanser feels so luxurious and my skin feels totally loved after using it. 

I then like to follow with a good exfoliation using The Sanctuary Radiance Exfoliator with my Clarisonic Mia. I only use my Mia a couple of times a week before I use a treatment on my face when I want a really deep cleanse. This exfoliator is great, it is nice and gentle but leaves my skin glowing. 

After a good cleanse and scrub I like to use cleansing and moisturising masks. My mask of choice for a long pamper is The Origins Clear Improvement Mask it clears out my skin and is not uncomfortable to sit with for half an hour. I then follow it with either the Antipodes Manuka Honey mask which is so lovely, It makes my skin feel super moisturised and helps to calm and blemishes I have, or when my skin is feeling really dehydrated I use the Origins Drink Up Intensive Overnight mask which is a dry skinned gals best friend. I wake up in the morning feeling like a new person with hydrated plump skin. It is always my go to after a heavy weekend. 

Lastly I slap a bit of Kerastase Masque Force Architecte on my hair. I have coloured hair and it is bleached at the end so I have to take good care of it to keep it in good condition. This mask is great it leaves my hair feeling super moisturised without a frizzy split end in sight!

So thats my Sunday Pamper routine, and a pretty lovely one it is that. I always finish the night off with a slap of body oil and a fresh coat of paint on my nails so I am feeling tip top for the week ahead. 

What is your pamper routine?

5 Things / New Bits

Friday, 23 May 2014

1 / Lanolips Intense Hand Balm
2 / Lanolips Triple Buttermilk Body Balm

I love the Lanolips 101 Ointment and swear by it for dry or sore lips so when I saw these products on offer in Waitrose (buy the body balm and get the hand balm free) I couldn't resist. They are both intensely moisturising and don't leave you feeling sticky or waiting an age to dry (my pet hate).

3 / Antipodes Hosanna Intensive Hydrating Serum
4 / Antipodes Aura Manuka Honey Mask

I have had my eye on a few Antipodes products for a while and finally bit the bullet and got these two as my first taster of the brand. I have only used them both a couple of times but so far so good. The serum is great for at night - I wake up with such smooth skin and the mask is super hydrating. Plus both smell delicious. I have a feeling both of these will become regulars in my routine...

5 / The Body Shop Coconut Beautifying Oil

I tend to forget about The Body Shop when looking for products for some reason but now I have rediscovered my love for them I have a feeling my local store will be seeing alot of me. This oil is great, it smells aaaaamazing and doesn't leave my skin feeling sticky or greasy it soaks straight in leaving me with beautiful glowing skin. There is no faff when applying it you can just slap it on and go, perfect for those random sunny days when you suddenly want to get your pins out. I tend to apply at night time and then roll around in bed sniffing my limbs...but you know, each to their own.

Have you tried any of my new products? What do you think of them?
