My favourite Pamper Products of 2013
I’m a sucker for a pamper night. If I had time to do one twice a week I would. It’s such a great feeling when you’ve scrubbed it all away and thrown on some freshly bought products. So here's my feel good favourite pampering discoveries of 2013...
Soothhing Seasalt Bathing Crystals
A handful of these in your bath and you’ve created a softening, exfoliating tub of relaxing liquid. These salt crystals are so simple yet pretty darn effective. They leave your skin feeling squeaky clean, supple and almost as though you’ve been bathing in a spa. You can pick them up near enough anywhere but these particular ones are from your health and beauty store, Holland and Barrett.
Radox Muscle Soak
I’ve been using this bubble bath straight after a workout to relax the muscles but it’s also very therapeutic after a long, hard day at work. It contains a particular herb called Clary Sage which is renowned for its soothing effect on achy muscles. Radox highly recommend it after a strenuous work out, however due to its scent it’s also quite a generally relaxing product.
Dead Sea Spa Magik Salt Brushing
This is a newish discovery at the end of 2013 but still one that was founded last year. It’s a super effective exfoliating product that contains natural ingredients such as salts, coconut oil and vitamin e. It is recommended to apply the product to dry skin in circular motions. Firstly yes this product is a little messy. It does contain oils that help it to stick to the skin whilst your massaging it over your body however (from experience) it is prone to flying off if you do it too quickly. So the key is to pretty much go slow. After washing it off it leave your skin feeling immensely nourished and soft whilst improving skins texture.
Superdrug De-Stressing Aloe Vera Face Mask
I won’t go to much into detail about this product as I’ve reviewed it >here<. However I’ve been using this to aid break outs as it works particular well to reduce redness and calm the surrounding area without drying it out.
This is probably my beauty secret to ridiculously soft skin. Aqueous cream is generally used for dry rashes such as eczema. However as it contains moisturising liquid paraffin and white soft paraffin wax this is a godsend to those who are prone to dry, cracked skin especially during winter.
Lush Cinders Christmas Bath Bomb
I wish Lush sold this all year round as it smells incredible. A mix of gingerbread, fruit punch and candy. Not only does it smell incredible but as it disperses in the bath it makes a crackling sound, almost like a long burning log fire. Heavenly.
Yankee Candle Vanilla Chai
This has to be one of my Top 5 Yankee Candle scents. I actually was given a sample size one for Christmas and after smelling it had to buy another in the Boxing Day sales. So although this is a 2013 discovery it’s a pretty new one but I’ve wanted to try it for months. It literally smells like a Starbucks Vanilla Chai latte. A mix of Indian spices leaving a warm feeling to the room.
Dr Organic coconut Body Oil
I have to mention that I don’t use all of these products at once. Otherwise I’d most likely be slipping around the floor with how much moisture products I’d have on me! But the Dr Organic coconut body oil contains natural and organic raw materials and smells incredible. Like pure coconut oil, the product is solid at room temperate. Its not until you warm it but placing it in a sink of warm water for a 1-2 minutes, that you see the transformation from a solid into a luxurious, fine oil.
Hask Hair Oils and Treatments
I discovered these last year after the hype of infamous Moroccan Oil I picked one of these up as a cheaper alternative from Primark. Again I wont go into much detail as I reviewed them >here<. However as a cheaper alternative on the high street these treatments have worked wonders. They’re a, non-greasy, deeply nourishing product that has helped repair the ends of my hair especially after my summer ombre.
