Pamper Routine Essentials

Hello, everybody hope your well, today I will be writing about what products I use and what I like to do on a pamper day. I like to do a pamper routine at least once every week, just to relax and unwind by doing all the little beauty treatments that you may not normally get to do on a normal busy day. So how I like to start my pamper routine is by running a nice hot bubble bath, I like to use lush products in my bath mainly bubble bars and bath bombs to create a lush cocktail in your bath, I have a post on my top ten lush products check it out here.  I also like to light some candles to create a relaxing atmosphere, my favourite ones are the Yankee candles, since I have quite a collection of different fragrances. Whilst I’m in the bath I like to watch some YouTube but make sure the videos I watch are quite relaxing, I like to watch Alfie’s and Zoella’s vlogs and main channel videos, I also like to watch KEEMi’s videos. In the bath I will wash my body with a scrub then a body wash, my favourites are the scrubs from the Body Shop and the body wash from Dove. At this point I will then shave my legs and underarms since there is nothing better than having super soft legs, I use the Gillette Venus Divine Sensitive Razor which I got from Superdrug. After shaving and washing my body I will then give my face a wash I like to first use a scrub, which I use the  Garnier Pure Active Anti-Blackhead Wash from Superdrug. I then use a hot muslin cloth cleanser to make sure all of the dirt is off my face the one I use is the Superdrug own brand vitiman E one. I will then pop on a face mask now I love using all sorts of different face masks but my favourite is the ones from Lush. At this point I will then lay back and relax and wait for my face mask to do its job and then once it’s dried I will then rinse it off with walm clean water. Once I get out the bath I then turn on the shower and give my hair a shampoo the one I use is the L’Oreal Paris Elvive Extraordinary Clay Shampoo. I will then step out of the shower and apply a generous amount of a deep conditioner to my hair I have used many but my favourite is the Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Reconstructor conditioner. I would then leave that on wrapped up in a turbytowel and then set a timer, once it is ready I rinse off the conditioner with cool water. I then wrap my hair in a clean dry towel since I leave my hair to dry naturally. I will then lay on my bed and relax with some candles lit and I would watch some YouTube or Netflix or even read a magazine, my favourite magazine is Cosmopolitan. 

I hope you enjoyed reading about what I do on my pamper routine, I have linked where to get the products mentioned within the post so just click on the names of products to go to the website. Don’t forget to like and follow my blog so you know when I post anything else.

Lush Aqua Marina face and body cleanser review.

This product is a great all round cleanser for the face and body, however I mainly use it as a face product. I used to suffer from acne and had tried nearly every cleanser , scrub or mask out on the market for acne prone skin and none worked, not even a cleanser and medication from the doctors or Dermatologist. Nothing seemed to work. Until I came into my local lush store to stock up on my bath bombs when one of the employees approached me regarding if I needed any help, and that is when I asked her if she recommended any skin care products for sensitive, blemish prone skin. And she suggested the Aqua Marina cleanser as it was made from all natural ingredients and the ingrediants in it was proven to help with sensitive skin and acne prone skin. I have been using it now for a couple of years and it is my go to cleanser, I completely cleared up my skin after a couple of weeks, and it has kept my acne under control, for the past couple of years to the point where some days I don’t need to wear make up and on the days where  I want too I can just wear a light bb cream, instead for the heavy foundation that I used to wear.It has a clean fresh scent which is good as I have had some skincare that can be very over powering with perfume, where as this is light. Another thing I must say is how soft it leaves my skin feeling after I use it,this could be due to the seaweed and aloe vera which is in it but it makes my skin so soft you just cant stop smoothing your face. The only down side to this product would be the consistency, as it is quite hard to make it smooth enough that you can lather it on your face. But other than that this product is a really amazing product, it really worked clear my skin up so I would recommend it to anyone that has sensitive, acne prone skin, or even just normal skin types, it is a great all around product with I purchase over and over again, and I will remain to do so in the future.

The price of this product is £7.25 per 100g, which is more on the expensive side for a face cleanser, but I think it is well worth it for the results I got from the product.

You can find this product in any Lush stores or online at lush.com

My Autumn/ Fall Essentials 

Today I’m going to be sharing my top 10 essentials I need for Autumn or fall time.

1. Candles- I love Candles so much I collect all different scents and types, so these have got to be a big part of my Autumn essentials, my favourite is Yankee candles, there is a Yankee candle shop near where I live and I spend a lot of my time and money in there. A few of my favourite fall time scents are…                     Snow in love- This is actually a winter candle but I love it all year round.

Honey clementine-This one is a new scent for 2016.

Midsummers night- This one is a very deep dark scent, that just makes you feel cosy and warm.

Mandarin cranberry- This one has a lovely fruity scent that makes you feel very cosy and festive

Wedding day- My all time favourite scented candle.
2. Cosy blankets- There is nothing I love more than cuddling up to a good film on the sofa with a nice soft blanket keeping you warm, I have a couple just Incase but my favourite is one I got from Primark quite a while ago now but it is still as soft as ever.

3. Hot chocolate- My favourite hot drink is a nice creamy hot chocolate with cream and mini marshmallows, I am lucky enough to own a tassimo coffe machine and I use the cadburys chocolate pods they are so easy and delicious.

4.Hot Baths- I love a good bath especially with bubbles and a bath bomb, there is nothing quite like it before bed to get you all cosy and sleepy. I normally light some candles, get my bubble bars and bath bombs from lush and sit and wind down after a long day with a hair and face mask. My favourite lush bath bombs and bubble bars are…

Frozen bath bomb

The comforter bubble bar

Ickle baby bot bath bomb

Butterball bath bomb

Dragons egg bath bomb

Pop in the bath bubble bar

5. Fluffy socks/bed socks- Now I never go anywhere with out fluffy socks on in the fall and winter time they are my ultimate essential.

6. Cosy knitted jumpers- My favourite seasons are fall and winter time because of knitted jumpers and the fashion involved with that time of year, plus they never go out of fashion because they are a fall must have.

7.Comfort foods- This is a must, they are the meals that just make you feel all warm inside like a home cooked meal, my favourites are soups, chilli con carne, chicken cassarole with dumplings, chicken stew, sausages and mash with peas and gravy, chicken roast dinner, spaghetti Bolognese, toad in the hole, curry. 

8. Dark lipstick- Over the past couple of years I’ve been really loving a dark lip in the autumn time, one of my favourites is by Mac cosmetics, it’s called amorous it is a deep plum red colour and it is my go too dark lip shade.

9.Coffee shops- In fall time the best place to be when it’s cold or raining is a coffee shop my favourite place to go is Costa, I love their coffee or hot chocolate and their food is amazing, you can take away or eat in, which I much prefer to eat in and get on with any work or go with my fiancé or friends and family for a coffee and a chat. 

10. Medicine and tissues- This is a massive essential especially in Autumn and winter time because it’s cold and flu season with the change of weather, so you defiantly need to try and combat any germs before you get sick, because I think there is nothing worse than being ill. 

So these are my Autumn/ fall essentials, I hope you enjoyed reading this post, don’t forget to check out some of my others.
