Some days we just need a little extra pampering, and today I am going to share some of the products that make me feel my best when I am in the need of a little TLC.
First up, is body and hair care...
L'Oréal Elvive Dream Lengths Shampoo
I only recently introduced this into my haircare routine, but when I want that little something extra to make my hair feel good, this is now my go-to! Ever since I started using it, it's made my hair feel so much healthier and softer. It also gives it the nicest shine without making it too oily looking, and it smells divine. Whether you want to keep your long hair protected or prevent it from getting too weak/dry, this is the shampoo for just that!
Aveeno Moisturising Body Wash
I am fan of Aveeno for their natural and sensitive skincare products, and for me, this body wash makes my essentials list because it is one of the few body washes that never irritates my skin. For a body wash, it also soaps up pretty well and will leave your skin feeling super soft and moisturised.
Dove DermaSpa Summer Revived Lotion
We have the showering sorted but it doesn't have to stop there! I love continuing on the body care to make my skin feel the best it can be, and that's where this magical little product comes in. As soon as I am out of the shower, I will reach for this self tanning lotion to give my skin an extra boost. Not only does it keep your skin smooth and moisturised, it also gives you a healthy natural looking glow that will continue over time and with re-application. A nice 2-in-1 product!
Moving onto facial care...
Simple 'Protect 'n' Glow' Detox & Brighten Clay Mask
I won't be diving into my full skincare routine here, but I couldn't write about pamper essentials with mentioning some of my facial favourites.
What's better than applying a relaxing mask during your self care session? Uh, nothing! Face masks are one of my favourite treats, especially a clay mask (I just feel like they grab a hold of all the stuff you don't want on your skin) and one I have been loving recently is from Simple's 'Protect 'n' Glow' range. I apply the mask to an already cleansed face, and let it sit for about 5-6 minutes, or when I can really feel it tighten up. Then, I simply wash it off with cool water and my skin looks immediately cleaner and glowing! At the moment, it is only available in a 50ML tube but I live in hope that they will release a bigger size sometime soon.
Simple Triple Protect Moisturiser w/ SPF 30
To keep on track of healthy and glowing looking skin, I thought it was also worth mentioning this moisturiser from the same Simple 'Protect 'n' Glow' range. I have been applying this moisturiser daily, and it really does give your skin a glowing boost. So much so, that I even had comments on how healthier my skin was looking. It does it's job in that retrospect, but what I really love about it, is that it also has an added SPF. While it can look a little like suncream on application, it dries really well, with little to no traces of white residue. It's so important to introduce an SPF into your skincare routine to help protect it from both UV and blue light pollution and it's great to find one of this quality at the affordable price point Simple is known for.
So, they are some of my essentials for those all important pamper days. Be sure to let me know what your essentials are in the comments below, and remember that these products are just some of my personal favourites and what works for some, may not work for others.
Until next time,
