Mid - week pampering!

I am so glad there is a computer between you and I right now!
I currently have green hair, a grey face and white feet.
I'm having some me time - therefore making myself look like a hot mess just to make myself look beter in the long run!
Generally Wednesday evenings are my time. Mark works Wednesday evenings so I either catch up with my girlfriends or give myself a bit of a facial!
Tonight it's the turn of a facial and it honestly feels like forever since I've pampered myself a bit!

So where do I start?

Yankee Candle - Pink Lady Slipper
First up, I light a candle. This is what I'm burning right now and I love it!

Sudocrem, Lush - Hair Doctor
Next I slap on some sudocrem on my feet and dry areas. I then pop some cotton sock on to avoid getting sudocrem EVERYWHERE!
Then I cover my hair in a deep conditioning hair mask to give it a bit of TLC.

Muslin Cloth, Biore' Cleanser, Tesco Cucumber Cleansing Wipes, L'Oreal Dermo Expertise Eye Make Up Remover.
Then it's time for a deep cleanse! I start by using a wipe to remove the majority of my make up. 
Then I attack my eye make up with the make-up remover I am currently loving! 
Finally I usemy daily cleanser with a hot muslin cloth.

L'Oreal Perfect Clean Exfoliator, Superdrug Mud Therapy Deep Cleansing Mud Mask, Lush - Tea Tree Toner Tab
Exfoliating is next on my list. I only exfoliate once a week as my skin is sensitive and when done more often it gets easily irritated!
Normally I like to use a Lush face mask or a home made one, but I've run out of my Oatifix face mask and right now, I'm too lazy to mix up a home made one! This mask is clarifying so is perfect for helping to reduce the appearance of pores.
After sitting for as long as possible (enough time to write a blog post or two!) I jump in the shower and wash it all away.
Afterwards I use this toner tab.

Bliss Body Buff, Bliss Body Butter
In the shower I love using Bliss' body buff as a gentle exfoliator.
I then proceed with my regular hair routine.
Then once I'm out of the shower I use a body butter to keep my skin soft and moisturised.

Beauty Formulas Cleansing Face Pore Strips, Beauty Formulas Cucumber cooling Eye Pads, Talika Eye Therapy Patch
Next I use a deep pore strip across my t-zone.
Today I am trying out these eye patches which I received in my May Jolie Box.
I then lay down for 5-10 minutes with some cucumber eye patches on.

Distlled Witch Hazel - Caudalie' Vinsource SOS Hydrating Serum, Superdrug Tea Tree Spot Stick, Essential care Organic Rose Moisturiser.
And finally, my favourite part!
I use witch hazel to close up my pores.(If I have none then I use lemon)
I use a spot treatment on any blemishes I have.
Then I use the Caudalie SOS hydrating serum. I love this and would use it everyday if it wasn't for the hefty price tag! I'm still working my way through my Glossy Box sample but I don't know what I'm going to do once it's run out!
Finally I use a natural moisturiser rather than the Oilatum cream I use daily.

I usually give my self a mani-pedi too!

How often do you like to pamper yourself?
What are your favourite products to use?


  1. This sounds like a lovely evening! I'm a bit jealous, I might slap a face mask on in a bit!
    I love Lush face masks, my favourites are Catastrophe Cosmetic and Mask of Magnaminty. I have that Superdrug one too, I really like that as well actually..


  2. Sounds amazing! It's got me in the mood for some pampering. I love the Superdrug Tea Tree Spot Stick. xx

  4. i do beauty therapy and in the long run if you exfoliate more (one that's apropriate for your skin) it will help stimulate the cebum in the skin and help ease dryness/sensitivity!
    looks like you had a lot of fun!
    i loooove pampering myself i'm going to do it soon i think

    1. Thanks for the tip! The hunt for a more gentle exfoliator begins ...
