Pamper Session and review of the Sephora Pomegranate Face Mask!

Hey Guys,

So today I decided to give my skin a little pamper as after going to Stockholm my face has been in very cold weather for a while! As it has been so cold my skin was looking very dull and tired so I wanted to use this Pomegranate Mask from Sephora that my brother kindly bought me. It is a sheet mask and is only one use but it is really nice as a little treat when your skin really needs it.

First of all, I washed my face to get off any dirt which may have still been on my face. I decided to use another Christmas present which was from a lush gift set I got. I used the serendipity soap to wash my face thoroughly. It has a strong lavender scent so would be nice for calming and is also very good for cleansing the skin.

I then put the mask on, I decided to do this while I was in the bath just so I could relax while doing it. The mask was a sheet mask so all you need to do is unfold it, remove the film and then place it on your clean face for 15 minutes. However, I didn’t do it for that long probably about 10 if that.

Afterwards, you’re meant to just rub in the excess product. These masks always seem to have a lot of product left on the face afterwards so I like to rub it in and then dab my face with a towel.

This is what my face looked like after just using the mask:

My skin has a nice glow to it that it didn’t have when I first woke up and it feels super soft! After this I just applied a lotion which was also a lush product from the same gift set called Sleepy. It is full of lavender scents and is super moisturising, as I didn’t want my face getting dry during the day and I don’t plan on putting make up on!

Would recommend all three of these products for a little pamper session, they definitely helped my combat my winter skin issues.

Hope you enjoyed this post, thanks for reading..

LUSH REVIEW: The Sacred Lotus Bath Bomb!

So this has got to be my favourite bath bomb of all time! This was the most satisfying bath bomb to watch and the pay off was ridiculously amazing.

We’ll start with how it looks before being put in the water. The bath bomb essentially looks like it has been cut in half to reveal this amazing shimmer ball in the middle. Lush then added petals on the side of the bath bomb, which I knew before buying would come away to create amazing colours. The smell of this bath bomb is what you would expect from the name of it, very floral. I love them scents as it’s such a fresh yet sweet smell that sticks to you when you come out of the bath.

When you initally put it in the bath, the smell just fills the room! These lovely swirls of purple float around the bath as the petals come off and create such a lovely pattern. This is quite a slow fizzer but so worth it in the end.

I was really interested in what colour the yellow and purple would create at the end of the fizzing but it turned out to be a lovely pale pink which was so pretty. It also had the best shimmer I have ever seen. When you moved the water around the shimmer would move with it. However, the shimmer didn’t stick to you like some of the others do so I was really happy about that! Wish I could’ve got a real picture of the shimmer but it is such a lovely surprise at the end!

Hands down, my favourite bath bomb wish it was in more than just Oxford Street! Will definitely be buying this again.

How I like to relax:

So, I’m not going to lie to you guys, I’m hungover. It’s shameful, I had a few too many and now I’m feeling sorry for myself. Alcohol tends to make me feel very tense and anxious the day after so I couldn’t help but want an escape today. I decided it was essential to have a little pamper session and to fill you guys in on how I pamper myself and inevitably feel super relaxed afterwards.

1. Take off all Make-up

So, since my skin is needing some serious hydration I decided to use this Simple purifying cleansing lotion to take my makeup off. I put a small amount on some cotton wool and it is so effective.

2. Run a nice hot bath

For this part I thought I would use a personal favourite of mine, the BlackBerry Bathbomb by Lush. I haven’t used one in ages but it never fails to impress me. The smell is just so fruity and relaxing it’s perfect for a little pamper session. I also lit my new freshly cut roses Yankee Candle that my boyfriend gave me for Valentine’s day which just added to the lovely aroma.

3. Spend as long as you need relaxing in the bath

Enjoy the relaxing hot bath and let your muscles soak while doing what suits you! Sometimes I listen to an album/playlist on Spotify,  or finish an episode on Netflix! Today I just relaxed and used my beautiful valentines soap that I reviewed in my last blog post.

4. Moisturise 

I literally can’t stress how important this is, taking make up off before going into the bath allows the skin to breathe and use the steam as a treatment for spots and stress. But, when you have finally dragged yourself put of that amazing bath don’t forget to hydrate your skin.

I used the Nivea in-shower body conditioner after shaving in the bath and the  for my face I used Johnson’s baby lotion. It’s that simple, I am in love with the smell of Johnson’s products at the moment, have no idea why but this lotion is so soothing and just something delicate to put on the skin and let it soak it up! For my hands I used Nivea smooth nourishing hand cream, they’re very dry at the moment and this is really effective, would definitely  recommend.
