Having Abit Of ‘Me Time’

Having Abit Of ‘Me Time’

Who doesn’t love a good ol’ pamper? You’ve had a tiring day at work or school and you just can’t be bothered to do anything. I love having abit of ‘Me Time’. Taking a nice hot shower, Shoving your hair in a bun, getting all the makeup off and washing away your stresses of the day. I have alot of products to help with the relaxing process, of course.

So I start off removing my make up with The body shop chamomile cleansing Oil. I massage this all over my face, which breaks all my makeup up ready to take off with a warm, damp muslin cloth. Oils are my favourite way to remove make up, and I especially like this one because it doesn’t make my skin even more oilier that it already is! For my second cleanse I use Avene Clearance Cleansing gel with my Clarisonic. It gets off any access oil and make up left over by my first cleanse. After cleansing my skin I jump in the shower. I wash my hair with with Garnier Ultimate Blends The Silky Smoother Shampoo and Conditioner, I don’t really have a favourite shampoo and conditioner, i’ve tried quite a few but I find that none of them do anything special. But these both are lovely to use and they smell amazing! The shower Gel Of choice is Baylis and Harding Jojoba, Silk And Almond Shower Creme. This is hands down the best smelling shower gel I have ever tried! As soon as I smell it I just feel relaxed and you can tell its doing a good job of moisturising your skin too!

I’m not going to pretend I set out all of my clothes perfectly ready to jump out the shower and get straight into, I usually forget to bring them to the bathroom so using a towel, I run to my room to get them,  hoping that the towel doesn’t give way as i’m making the quick dash across the landing.  After putting on my comfy clothes, it’s mask time. I’m still using my KIKO mask, which I won’t go into to much detail about as I have a post about it here. Whilst this is on, I moisturise using The Body Shop, Spa Of The World body moisturiser which is amazzzinnnggg! First of all, the smell. Just the smell. Its amazing, it’s such a relaxing smell, and its so moisturising aswell. Its quite a thick, rich moisturiser, but I personally love that for night time! I slather this on, sometimes fake tan but during the winter I skip this step because I don’t usually get the legs out at this time of year, they’re in hibernation!

On to hair care, I use a few products to keep the main under wraps. I was recommended Redken Antistap by my hair dresser sometime last year, and haven’t stopped using it since. I’ve got quite dry hair that snaps easily, so I was after something that would make it stonger and healthier. Redken Anti Snap  has been my hair care savoir, I use it every time a wash my hair, and I love it! I also use Garnier Ultimate Blends The Sleek Perfector Oil to add abit of moisture, I apply this to the ends of my hair and i’m done!

For my skincare, I keep it nice and simple, as if i’m honest all I want to do when I have abit of ‘Me Time’ is to chill out and watch some TV, so I quickly wipe my face with a KIKO Purifying Pad, and then gently press on my Clarins Lotus Oil (Post Here). My moisturizer of choice is the KIKO Purifying Fluid, I also have a post about this Here so check that out to know a little more about it, but I love this for night time as it’s lightweight and refreshing after a hot shower! At the moment i’ve been tying out the Simple Eye Cream, which I actually love! It’s light weight and sinks in so quickly! I finish up with abit a lipbalm and i’m done! TIME TO RELAX!IMG_0626IMG_0627

I usually like to light a candle, cuddle up and watch a film or TV series at this point of the evening. I’m currently watching ‘Making A Murderer’ which is so interesting. I also like to use the opportunity to write a few posts for the blog, sounds strange but it really relaxes me when i’m writing!

When my face is feeling abit spotty and clogged up, I love to use the kiko purifying mask to get rid of those pesky blemishes. I have recently been trying alot of the purifying rage, but this mask really stood out to me.

 

It is clay based so it does dry once applied, although not in a horrible way so you can’t move your face and end up looking like you’ve had far to much botox. It doesn’t pull on your skin when you take it off which is one thing i look for in a clay based mask, because who wants to be tugging at there skin? The mask also has a  gitty texture which i wasn’t expecting although it’s an added benefit because it exfoliates the skin aswell as unclogging pores! it’s such a lovely feeling when on the skin, very cooling and relaxing. I leave it on for about 10-15 mins, and then take off with a damp Muslin Cloth.

 

The results of this mask really impressed me. It had instantly matified my skin, my redness was reduced around my nose and most of all, my skin felt squeaky clean!  I have tried a lot of clay based masks over the years of battling oily and blemish prone skin, although none have them have really impressed me as much as this one, and with the mask only coming in at £5.90, it really is a win win situation. My spots seem reduced and my skin is clearer. This is a definite holy grail in my skin care routine!
