Hey, Internet Friends
So my fiancé is working till 3am and Ive got the flat to myself so you know what that means? Candles, skincare, a favourite book and a nice relaxing evening!
Not your idea of an exciting Friday night?
Maybe I can change your mind.
I start by lighting some lovely smelling candles, my current favourites is the ‘Joy for Soy’ in the fragrance ‘Coconut Milk Bath’ and the Yankee tea lights in the fragrance Citrus Tango. I really love tea lights because there a lot cheaper and you can dot them around making them look so pretty.
As I have recently been having having a bit of a nightmare with my skin I have been using the tea tree regime from The Body Shop.
I start with the foam cleanser to remove any left over make up and gently massage it into my face, you can really feel this product working and the Tea Tree is great for blemished skill.
This is a great product to make your skin feel really clean and prepare it for the rest of the pampering I have in store.
The next part of my exciting evening involves the Lush Mask of Magnaminty, I absolutely love this mask and feel it is brilliant if your having a bit of an issue with breakouts. However this product doesn’t feel like a real skincare solution because it smells so divine it really feels like a treat.
The mask contains some important ingredients made like peppermint oil to stimulate blood glow, marigold oil and chlorophyllin to treat breakouts and improve skin radiance with added evening primrose seeds and aduki beans to gently exfoliate as you remove it.
You can use this mask anywhere on your body but I feel its far too lovely for anywhere other than the face.
It is a fairly thick consistency as you can see below but it is easily removed with a washcloth and warm water.
Next up is obviously a little bit of moisturiser!
I am sticking with the Tea Tree range from The Body Shop as I feel my skin really needs the help.
My favourite key areas about this product is that it is quickly absorbed leaving a matte finish and ridiculously good shine control. This is a full proof skin clearing product that I will continue to repurchase as long as my skin keeps misbehaving!
This next product is a real treat!
This lip moisturiser is expensive and only used on very special occasions but it is absolutely amazing! My lips are literally like silk, so hydrated and my lipstick goes on perfect the day after use. And it smells like grapefruit, what more can you need?
The only issue I have with this is the applicator, it doesn’t come with one! Its just a squeezy tube which makes it difficult to apply neatly.
Ive talked about this body butter before and I just can’t seem to shut up about it, my collection of body butters is ridiculous and I know I have a problem but I always come back to this one. It smells divine and just makes your skin feel and smell extra special. It is brilliant!
I cover my whole body aside from my face in this and its just so luxurious and fast drying that I cant give it up!
Next its time to properly relax. Ive got my skin all beautiful smelling and glowing and now its time to cuddle up with a good book.
I always go back to my old favourites on nights like this because I feel when I want to relax and go to my happy place getting into a new book can just be that bit too much like hard work.
Tonight Ive chosen John Green – The fault in our stars.
If you haven’t read this book then do so! Make it your priority, whether you can buy it, borrow it or get it from the library its a must read.
I hope you enjoyed spending an ‘exciting’ friday night in with me, what do you guys do on your nights in?
What products do you use to make yourself feel special?
