I don’t often do routine posts so I was determined to give this a go. I’m going to talk you through my evening routine on those nights when I just want to have a bit of a pamper. I’ve included all my current skincare and bath favourites so I hope you enjoy it.
When I want to have a proper pamper evening, of course I have to have a LUSH bath and give my skin some skincare goodness. My first point of call is always to cleanse, at the moment I am using the Body Shop Camomile silky cleansing oil or the butter equivalent. I love both of these cleansers as they melt away makeup and leave my skin feeling nourished and refreshed.
At this point I usually start running my bath, and then it’s time to apply a face mask. I recently picked up a new face mask from LUSH, which is the LUSH Brazened Honey fresh face mask. I apply a thick layer of this over my entire face and leave this to set whilst I run my bath. This mask has an unusual scent but I really like how it makes my skin feel, it’s it exfoliates as well as softening.
My bath bomb of choice for this pamper evening was LUSH Frozen. I wanted a bath bomb that was a bit of a spectacle, and Frozen never disappoints. It’s citrus grapefruit scent is lovely and refreshing, which is ideal for the springtime. Once my bath is nice and deep I like to set up my iPad so I can catch up with my YouTube subscriptions whilst I have a long soak.
At the moment I’ve been enjoying using the OGX Coconut Curls range for my hair. In between my shampoo and conditioner I like to use a hair mask. My current hair mask of choice is the Lee Stafford CocoLoco hair mask, this is great for giving back some extra moisture to my hair and it smells incredible.
If I have enough time I like to use the Soap & Glory Smoothie Star body scrub to exfoliate my entire body. I love using this product as it smells like maple syrup, and the scrub has the perfect texture for gently exfoliating my skin. I also love the shower cream from this range, it’s so silky and can even be used like a shaving creme. I’ve also included the Yuzu & Cocoa shower cream from LUSH as I’m obsessed with the chocolate orange scent.
After my bath I like to use the Soap & Glory Smoothie Star body butter (can you sense a little theme here?). Following this I like to give my hands a bit of a pamper. The LUSH Salted Coconut hand scrub is a real treat for dry hands, and it’s salty coconut scent is delicious. For hand cream, you’ve guessed it – it’s Soap & Glory hand food.
If my lips are feeling dry I will use my LUSH Bubblegum lip scrub before starting my facial skincare routine. I use La Roche Posay Serozinc, morning and night prior to the rest of my skincare to keep blemishes at bay. My current night creme of choice is the Wild Ferns Manuka Honey night creme which I recently reviewed (click here to read my review). If I need an extra hit of moisture I will use the Body Shop Vitamin E Overnight Oil.I like to use the Body Shop Elderflower eye gel as it refreshes my under eye area. Last but not least is the Clarins Lip Comfort Oil, it’s very intense and always leaves my lips super soft.
I’d love to hear your thoughts on this post – I have always wanted to do a video Morning/ Evening routine so let me know if that’s something you’d like to see.
