How to Spend A Cold Dark Evening..

14 comments


Now that it's officially winter, the night's are drawing in and it's getting a lot colder. The dark weather puts me in such an awful mood, I hate it being dark and cold for many reasons, but it just shortens the day completely and I always feel like there just isn't enough time for anything. This usually leads to me stressing out about everything completely, and wanting to hibernate until the days get lighter. 

Dark cold evenings can obviously only mean one thing to me, especially after a long stressful day, which is a pamper evening. I love my winter pamper evenings and I try to have them at least once a week to relieve all the stress and worry, and to stop me being such a moody cow. Anyone else?

My perfect pamper evening consists of a bath, facemasks, chocolates, full skincare routine, fake tan, candles and anything else I can find to lengthen the relaxing time. 

After a long day, my favourite thing ever is to come home and jump straight into the bath, but when I have a pamper evening I change my routine slightly. First of all, I take off my makeup using my Garnier Micellar Water, this is the easiest way I've found to take my makeup off. It's just so quick and easy. After taking my makeup off, I'll exfoliate my face using my Lush Ocean Salt Face and Body Scrub as my no. 1 choice. Then I'll apply a facemask, I have a few favourites, but they're all from Lush, so I'd recommend any facemask from Lush, especially Catastrophe Cosmetic. 

This post seems to be very Lush themed, I'm sorry but I'm just obsessed, oops. Continuing the Lush theme, I run myself a bath, on a pamper evening I will always use a bath bomb/bubble bar from Lush to make my bath pretty and softening on my skin. A few of my favourites are The Comforter Bubble Bar and Lush Luxury Pud Bath Bomb. This is where I open the chocolate, light a candle and relax. My recommendations on candles is endless, but any from Yankee Candle are amazing, especially Cherry Vanilla and Cranberry Ice.

When I eventually remove myself from the bath, this could be hours after I lose track of time so easily, I always moisturise my skin to keep it healthy and to remove any dry patches, or to prepare myself for fake tan. My go to fake tan products at the moment are from Cocoa Brown Tan. I've recently been using the 1 Hour Tan, and it applies smoothly and doesn't dry streaky at all. It gives such a flawless tan, and you can leave it on for 1, 2 or 3 hours depending on what shade you want your tan. I couldn't fake tan before I used Cocoa Brown products, now I love it. The perfect way to finish a pamper evening too, bronzed and glowing.

  5. I am absolutely in love with the Lush bath products. We always have a whole collection at the bath tub for pamper evenings.
    The ocean salt face scrub is my all time favourite face scrub. I just love what it does to my skin.
