Weekend Pamper Post #2



I haven't been too consistent with my pamper posts recently, I promised to blog about one each week if I could but this weekend especially was a great excuse for a little 'me time'. I have a chilled week with the boy and what better way to start than being preened head to toe!

First things first, I jumped into the shower for a good ol' scrub, I used the Soap & Glory Flake Away which does just the trick, plus it smells amazing! After washing my hair, I sealed the ends with the Fekkai Glossing Cream. It leaves my locks feeling soft, smooth and sleek, then left my hair to dry naturally, something I'm trying to do more regularly. Currently on the hunt for a new hair mask to try, I'm thinking Ojon - recommendations are welcome!

To set the mood so to say, and to turn my bedroom into a make-shift spa, I lit my Neom Sensuous Travel Candle, the perfect size to move from room to room - or even to take away with you! Neom says it 'eases tension and anxiety' with scents of ylang ylang, frankincense and patchouli (the three wick is next on my list, I can't get over how good the scent is!). I covered myself in AHAVA's Deadsea Water Mineral Body Lotion and after my usual cleanse and tone, I swiped the Alpha H Liquid Gold over my face and neck. It's been a complete saviour for my skin, I noticed results even from first use and it's quickly nestled itself nicely into my holy grail picks (more on that in an upcoming video!). I leave it on overnight, without applying a moisturiser, as an intensive treatment and my skin is definitely agreeing! I applied the This Works: Tired Eye Serum under my eyes (I'd put it in the fridge before hand so it was slightly cool!) as my dark circles and bags are looking a little worse for wear, this is just so refreshing and soothing! I'm scraping out the remainders of my miniature Liz Earle Superbalm, a multi-use product for cuticles, lips and dry skin. It has little grains in it which dissolve as you massage it in and an aromatherapy type scent, as I prefer tinted balms for during the day, I build up a thick layer of this on my lips for overnight.

As I'm having the week off, so are my nails and I decided that my regular 'au natural' mani was in order. I filed, buffed and tided up my cuticles before applying two coats of OPI Nail Envy (the god of all nail strengtheners!). To finish off, I doused the base of my nails in Essie's Smooth Trick Deep-Conditioning Cuticle Oil and slathered on the Neom Inspiration Organic Hand Cream.

Roll on next weekend ;-)

  1. The Ojon mask is brilliant but unless you have super dry damaged hair I wouldn't recommend following the directions and putting it on your scalp, I just put it through the bottom half of my hair and it works great. Also, I shampoo my hair twice after to get out all of the extra oil-its potent stuff! I should really invest in some nail envy, I have such flaky nails :(

    1. Thanks for letting me know - ah ok, I tend to just put masks on the ends anyway, as you say it can get too greasy! I really want to try their new hair oil coming out next month, looks amazing! Highly recommend the Nail Envy, worth every penny! x
