My Pamper Essentials

My Pamper Essentials
 When deadlines get piled on top of you or you've had a bad day at work or even just because you fancy treating yourself, pamper evenings are something that can cheer me up and take my mind off whatever it is that worried me. I love pamper evenings they almost always 99% of the time make me feel relaxed/stress free and a lot better than I felt beforehand. I usually have pamper evenings a lot more through winter because 1. Colder days of course mean longer baths. 2. Uni deadlines get chaotic. 3. My face goes through some winter/dry changes! Since the colder months are now upon us I decided now was the perfect time to share with you some of the pamper essentials I use when I am wanting to relax and feel stress free!

Tea lights or Candles
No matter what the reason is for needing a pamper session candles are always on the agenda. Candles can really bring a room to exactly how you want it to be in my case relaxing and soothing. As we know the darker nights are getting nearer and nearer so by 5/6pm we are seeing the night sky! Which alternatively means dim the lights and light half a dozen candles around your bathtub! This is always a relaxing, pleasant thing to do to start a pamper evening!

Bath Bombs or Bubble Bars
Another major essential when having a hot bath is to have something going on in it like bubbles or a bath bomb fizzing away! One of my favorites I like to use is LUSH Twilight bath ballistic this goes from pink, to blue then creates a purple midnight sky colour to my bath! Also near Christmas I tend to use a lot more bubbly products and create a Santa beard...childish I know.

Face Masks
Some of the time when I want a pamper evening it is down to feeling a little dull about my skin. So I sometimes like to kick back in the bath and have a face mask on I have heard face masks are bad to use in the bath. But, I haven't seen the bad side to things so I still continue using them! Some of my favorites are from the brand Origins or LUSH and whenever my face is feeling dull these masks always brighten up my face by reducing any access oils, redness, blemishes etc! These always cheer my mood up and my face.

Books and Snacks
If I am going all out with a pamper evening I like to chill in the bath for a good half an hour or maybe a sneaky hour! With a face or hair mask on to pass the time by, but whilst I am waiting until I can take the masks off I like to read a book on my Kindle. I have currently been reading Beautiful Disaster again for the 50th time whilst relaxing back. I also sometimes like to splash out excuse the pun with some chocolate. Here I have one of my favorite chocolate brands Green&Blacks I always buy the small size because I won't feel guilty for eating it all! 

After the bath essentials
Once I have washed my face mask or whatever it is off I get out, get dry then apply a body butter to my skin. The Soap&Glory sugar crush body butter is my all time favorite body butters. It smells delicious and who doesn't want to smell delicious after a rough day?! Once I am moisturized and in my pyjamas I put the kettle on and make either a green tea or if I am feeling incredibly naughty a hot chocolate with cream! I then go onto sometimes painting my nails and watch a film usually a Disney movie or Harry Potter. I do anything enjoyable that allows me to relax and take my mind off!

What are your pamper essentials?
