For me there is just something therapeutic about having a good chill out and pamper on a Sunday, new week new me! I like to interchange a lot of the products I use, but these are always the ones I come back to when I want to wake up feelin’ good Monday morning. I always start with cleansing my face, and off course it is the Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish (£15.50) that just does it for me. The eucalyptus is fresh and calming and the creamy texture makes it easy to cleanse and get my skin clean without stripping it and leaving to dry and tight.
I don’t always have baths (don’t worry I shower inbetween) so I go all out when I do, I like to use two bath bombs but the one that goes in each and every time is Lush Butterball (£2.65). This bath bomb has pieces of cocoa butter in it that leave my skin feeling really soft, even after having a shower the next day my skin is like a babies! I think if your skin is sensitive and you don’t want the usual crazy things from Lush then this is perfect. The Temple Spa Big Reveal (£40), ahh this product makes me happy! It is a glycolic resurfacing peel which is the first of its kind I have tried, unbelievably applying this and seeing the results takes less than 2 minutes. My skin is left feeling soft and radiant, when I use this I notice the next day my makeup sits smoother and applies better to my skin, it has become a wonder product for me.
The final stages are always kept beside my bed to use before I go to sleep. I definitely wouldn’t be able to wear matte lipsticks without the Nuxe Reve De Miel lip balm (£9.50). In the evening I like to use something rich and intense. I wake up in the morning and I can still feel this balm working its magic, if you have dry lips and have tried everything but this, then it is worth a go. it seems quite pricey compared to the usual lip balm, but you get what you pay for in this case! Lastly I apply the Sally Hansen Nail Oil (£6.20), this is a fairly new step in my routine because my nails have annoyingly started flaking and thinning. So far this oil has managed to keep my cuticles softer and my nails in better condition.
