Again, I can only apologise for my lack of proper blogging lately. I just moved into a new house last weekend and aside from being busy with packing, then unpacking, trying to get out the door to work whilst simultaneously climbing over boxes and of course making the always stressful trip to Ikea, I also had no internet connection until just last night so I have been adrift from all my lovely blogging friends! Thankfully, I got wifi back in time for tonight's best of beauty post, which is all about pampering products. This is going to be a very short one from me because in all honesty, I actually tend not to do a huge amount of pampering. The only face mask I use is my Origins one (which I spoke about here) and that's an overnight one, so not really a treat as such. I rarely do my nails anymore as I can't wear polish in work and if I use a hair mask it's just one you leave on for a few minutes in the shower.
I have however recently become a total convert to baths. My new house has a very cute little bath and I've been making the most of it with some bath bombs from Lush. I just used 'Blackberry' the other night, a rather lovely mix of bergamot, blackberries and frankincense. To that I added some Aromatic Foaming Bath from Neal's Yard to help send me off to sleep entirely.
Containing lavendar, Spanish marjoram and geranium essential oils and a "skin-conditioning herbal infusion", this is designed to help you unwind and relax and it certainly does that. I find my muscles can be quite achey and this is exactly what I need to soothe them. I used it on it's own last night as I ran out of bath bombs (may need a trip to Lush again soon...Cat, I'm looking at you for guidance/enabling here!!) and it was rather heavenly. It foamed up beautifully, left my skin super soft and my muscles relaxed. Fab.
What's top of your pampering product list at the moment? Are you good at finding the time to set aside for yourself or do you need to try a bit harder, like myself?! To the comments!!
