Relax Evening Essentials20:17
Every once in a while, I enjoy simply putting everything to the side and having a nice relaxing evening. Although I am guilty of always putting things off and saying ''I'll do it later'' quite frequently, on little occasions I won't worry about it and forgive myself.
During winter, these little pampering sessions are a perfect way to spend my nights. Don't get me wrong, I love the odd few in summer. But when it's all wet and cold outside, slipping into a warm bath and reading a good book or snuggling up to watch netflix with your favourite blanket and a cup of tea is amazing and comforting.
So today, seeing as I enjoyed one last night, I thought I'd share with you what I do and what products I use on these evenings.
First of all, I usually run a bath. This may be a little strange but personally, I'm not really a fan of a lot of bath products. I occasionally put a sprinkle of bath salts or some bubbles but apart from that my baths don't usually look very interesting.
Whilst the bath is running, I'll wash my face and put on a face mask. These two are my favourites - the Botanics Ionic Clay Mask and Avon's Clearskin Pore Penetrating Mineral Mask
I'll then use a home made body scrub which consists of brown sugar and coconut oil. Simply melt 1tbsp of oil in the microwave and then mix in 2-3 tbsp of sugar.
Once I get out of the bath, I'll go a head and finish my skincare routine and then apply Soap & Glory's Heel Genuis and Soap & Glory's Butter Yourself.
Of course it wouldn't be a relaxing evening without putting on some cosy socks and lighting some candles.
Next, I usually paint my nails with one of my favourite colours : Maybelline's Colorshow in 107 watery waste or 77 nebline (which I don't think they do any more), Rimmel London's Lycra Pro in 397 beige babe, Barry M in 304 mint green or Barry M's Chameleon in 331 chameleon blue.
Then I'll spend the rest of the night either reading my current book or watching netflix.
