A Pamper Day & Night

Thursday, 10 March 2016

Oh how I love pamper days, they are usually on Sundays. They are only on Sundays because it is good to have them before the week starts as well as this it puts you in the mood for the rest of week.  I love to schedule out a whole day full of relaxation and meditation. I think that pamper days are important especially if you have had a stressful week or not, they are time for you to reflect, take time out and just recuperate. 

For days like this, I either spend the day watching movies or YouTube videos, mainly comprising of both. Diary Of A Mad Black Woman, The 100, How To Get Away With Murder and Scandal are my favourite things to watch on pamper days - usually repeats of the same episodes. I usually watch these until a certain period where I get tired or my head hurts after continuously having my eyes on a screen. Sometimes I read books or other times I organise things to do in the week in my notebook.

For the evening, it all starts. I run a bubble bath with a LUSH bath bomb, some bath milk of some sort. To make my pamper days a bit better, I am looking to purchase the Laura Mercier Creme Brulee Honey Bath as I have smelt it before and it smells divine! I will definitely have a candle lit, as I do have an obsession with candles. To make my bathroom smell nice, the Bath and Body Works candle in "Fresh Sparkling Snow". It smells divine and makes me happy. In the bath (sounds a bit inappropriate), I usually have a mask. Either I make DIY facial masks, a post on that is coming up soon or the sachets from Superdrug. Some people don't like facial masks as they can irritate the skin but in my experience with Superdrug masks, they don't irritate or cause any reaction to the skin. 

Afterwards, just because I love to deeply exfoliate my skin, I use a exfoliate scrub from St Ives and spend some time scrubbing it in. Then with lukewarm water, I wash my face off. Under my eyes, I like to use either the Clinique All About Eyes Eye cream or REN 7 Active Gel to reduce puffiness. For the rest of my face, I use the Clinique Smart Serum and Aveeno Daily Moisturiser. To tone my face overnight, I spray the Vitamine E Refreshing Toning Mist. For those lips, I use either the Nuxe Reve De Miel lip balm or the Burts Bees Lip Balm to nourish my lips.

What do you do on your pamper days/nights?
