Sunday Pampering

July 15, 2012

I have managed to get through the whole of Winter without suffering from a cold but sadly one has struck me down in the middle of July- I blame the terrible British weather this summer! I have been feeling very sorry for myself this weekend although have just had a dose of Day Nurse and that has made me feel a lot better- I swear by that stuff! 

To make me feel better- and to give my skin some TLC I decided to have a mini pamper session using the products above. I removed my eye make-up with the Nivea Daily Essentials Gentle Cleansing Lotion and then gave my skin a good cleanse with the Soap & Glory Peaches and Clean (only purchased yesterday so I'll do a full review when I've tried it a few times- first thoughts are that it smells divine).

I then used the Sanctuary 5 Minute Thermal Detox Mask. This mask is really lovely and great for relaxing- as you apply a layer of the mask it heats up (hence the thermal effect) and warms the skin whilst giving a deep cleanse. I left it on for 5 minutes and then removed using a muslin cloth and warm water. Once the mask had been taken off, I used the Liz Earle Instant Boost Skin Tonic* to tone my skin. I don't use toner everyday but this one is so soothing that it forms an essential part of a DIY facial.

The penultimate step to my pampering session was to apply my little travel sample of the Liz Earle Skin Repair Moisturiser* for dry/sensitive skin. I don't have particularly dry skin but as I haven't been well I wanted to give it some extra moisture and this is brilliant for a good injection of that. It leaves your skin so soft and lasts till the morning- I highly recommend this. And finally I dabbed some of the Balance Me Wonder Eye Cream (free with Glamour this month) under my eyes. 

My skin now feels super clean, soft and refreshed. It's great to take some time to give your skin some TLC and it really doesn't take long. Which products do you love to use when pampering yourself?

  2. All these products sound like a dream to use, especially Peaches & Clean. What cute packaging, too.
