I am a huge fan of a pamper night. I regularly make time for them and I love having a whole evening with no plans where I can spend hours in the bath and apply all of the face masks! Here are 5 of my key ingredients for the perfect pamper night - with a big thanks to Debenhams for giving me the PJs and lots of treats to give me the best evening.
1) A great pair of Pyjamas
Key for a pamper night is getting straight into your Pjs when you get home I am in so much love with these from Ted Baker. I am terrible with my pyjamas - I would love to be one of those people who wears flimsy nighties and silk vests but I just get too cold and want to wear big t-shirts and cosy PJ bottoms to bed. I know what you're thinking, my boyfriend is a lucky man. These Ted Baker Navy Jersey Lace Pyjamas* are perfect as they are gorgeous and have such beautiful detail, but they're also really warm and feel super comfy to wear as they are a jersey material. The top is £16.65 here and the bottoms are £20.25 here. You can also get the top in a long sleeve.
2) A big bubbly bath
This is definitely my favourite thing about an evening of treating myself. A big bath full of bubbles. I am such a bath person and they always make me feel relaxed. I especially love them in winter when you have been cold all day and jump into the hot water. Bliss! I probably shouldn't but I always end up watching YouTube videos on my iPad whilst I'm having a soak - a risky game I know. I used the Baylis & Harding Sweet Mandarin & Grapefruit bath creme* which made the room smell divine and also came in a gold glittery cracker which made me very happy.
3. A face mask
The third ingredient has to be a face mask. Most of the time I like to apply one before I have a bath as the steam from the hot water is great for opening your pores and making the mask work even more effectively. I adore this set from Origins* and it would make such a perfect Christmas present- it contains four mini sizes of their most popular offerings- the Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask, Drink-up Intensive, Mask Out of Trouble 10 Minute Mask and the GinZing Refreshing Face Mask. I tried the Charcoal Mask during my pamper evening and have been really impressed- it's left my skin feeling so clear!
4. A great candle, or ten...
We are well and truly into candle season and I am lighting one every evening to give our house a cosy feel. I am rather excited about all of the new Winter candles that are coming out and have just placed a Bath & Body Works order with my friend who is in Florida this week. This Yankee Candle in Snow in Love* is a gorgeous winter-y scent and perfect for a relaxed night in.
5. A hot chocolate
A pamper night wouldn't be complete without a hot chocolate. During the colder months I tend to have a hot chocolate every evening (whoopsie) but when I am treating myself I'll go all out and make it with whipped cream and marshmallows. This Whittard Salted Caramel hot chocolate* is actually incredible and rivals the Starbucks Salted Caramel hot choc!
