The weather has been a bit hit and miss over the past few days, but one day was extremely cold which makes me so sad because it's supposed to be summer! This cold weather made me excited for autumn though, which means I'm closer to pulling out my thick coats and dark lipsticks. I am so done with summer this year, give me autumn now please. As it got cold I decided to give myself a real deep treatment pamper, but a quick version as I'm extremely busy at the moment.
My favourite hair treatment has to be Revlon UNIQ ONE Coconut Hair Treatment*,this is by far the best thing I've ever used on my hair. I admit it I'm not a massive fan of looking after my hair. I dyed it one too many times when I went through the stage of having to dye it every colour, so now I've just left it to grow out. This spray makes my hair so silky soft, like I've never dyed it before, it really brings my hair back to life. It's quick and easy to use and you just spray on, massage and leave it in, which is great when you're in a rush. It doesn't leave hair greasy at all and it leaves it smelling amazing.
At the moment I have been loving Hotel Chocolat Ti Jardin Body Butter* which I believe is from their 2014 range as I can't find a link to it anywhere, which sucks! This is a great deep conditioning moisturiser, as it's a butter form it takes longer to dry than a lotion, but it works wonders on the skin. My skin feels hydrated and smooth for days after using this, I especially love using it on my legs as body butter always makes legs look better, or is that just my imagination? Obviously it smells incredible, what do you expect from Hotel Chocolat?
My favourite hand cream has to be Vaseline's Intensive Care Healthy Hands and Nails Cream. As I work with horses my nails are always breaking and my hands are dry as hell, I use a hand cream daily, but I prefer to keep this for my pampering days. It strengthens nails whilst moisturising your hands, which kills two birds with one stone!
My lips are so unbelieavbly dry all year round, it's something I can never seem to solve, but I do try and keep on top of it as much as I can. First I get rid of the dry flaky dead skin using Lush's Bubblegum Lip Scrub, so many people have mixed thoughts on lip scrubs but I absolutely love them, it's the only thing I find that helps my lips from being flaky all the time. I apply Bee Good's Vanilla and Honey Lip Balm* to prevent them from drying out instantly. This lip balm is quite thick and it really deep conditions which I love because I actually feel like it's doing something, it also smells and tastes pretty good too.
To pamper my face I like to cleanse, exfoliate and the apply a face mask. My favourite cleanser at the moment is Ark Skincare's Age Protect Cleanser* which is something I'll be reviewing fully very soon, but on first impressions it leaves skin feeling clean and fresh. To exfoliate I use either Lush's Rub Rub Rub or Lush's Ocean Salt, both are great as face scrubs and leave skin smooth and ready to face mask! I use whatever face masks I have at home, but they're usually from Lush too, do you see a trend? Lush are fab. My favourite is Catastrophe Cosmetic.
How often do you get the chance to pamper?
