Whenever I manage to get some free time to myself (which at times can feel like a rarity!) I like to indulge in a good old spot of pampering! In fact today I wanted to share some of my current favourite pamper essentials with you:
Hands up those of you who like to start off their day with a pampering warm shower. Well Balance Me’s Rose Otto Body Wash is the very definition of pampering! Divinely scented with mood-lifting rose oils, this luxurious body wash soothes and softens the skin in the jiffy. What's more it is sulphate-free, making it the ideal body wash for sensitive/allergy prone skins like mine who cannot tolerate harsh chemicals.
This award-winning shower gel is not only deeply moisturising, but it serves to lift my mood due to the beautiful rose scent – I can’t imagine starting my day without it! I also adore the matching body cream which I use after the body wash to complement:
Balance Me Rose Otto Body Cream
Just like the Rose Otto Body Wash, Balance Me’s luxuriously creamy Rose Otto Body Cream is a pampering delight for my sensitive skin. Blended with anti-oxidant Arctic cloudberry, rosehip and violet and lotus flower extracts, it is deeply smoothing and richly hydrating. Again it smells divine and is deeply moisturising leaving the skin feeling all soft and lovely - I am just a massive fan of this indulgent (and again, award-winning) body moisturiser!
...and for a bit of facial pampering I recently discovered:
Timeless Truth Orchid Extract Replenishing Mask
“A replenishing and hydrating mask which helps lock in moisture and plump out the skin, leaving it feeling smooth, soft and radiant.”
The Orchid Extract Replenishing Mask is actually a sheet mask with a difference since it is elasticated and has special ear hooks which hook over the ear. The ear hooks ensure that the mask fits perfectly and stays firmly in place. The benefit of this is that you are free to walk around without the worry of the mask slipping off – great for us busy ladies who like to multitask!
Secondly, the elasticity of the mask pulling upwards creates slight pressure, which means that the mask is forced to absorb the serum. This was my first time trying out such a mask, and I have to say that I find these types of cutting edge beauty treatments very fascinating!
The mask is made out of a soft stretchable cloth which is soaked in serum and is perfectly comfortable to wear. When I removed my mask after the recommended 20 minutes my face felt more plump and hydrated and was also soft and radiant looking. I was certainly impressed with this mask and definitely recommend it for those seeking a quick and effortless means of perking up their complexion. Due to the plumping and hydration aspect, I think that this mask is particularly well suited to dry or mature skin types.
I hope that you enjoyed hearing about these pampering beauty essentials - they're all lovely "feel-good" products so I highly recommend them!
...Do you enjoy a spot of pampering too?!
