Hi Honey buns ! This is my first post of 2016!!! How was your New Year Eve outtings? Or shall I say your new year resolutions!! Hope you enjoyed and looked after yourselves! This is what I have been dreading 😢 I can now say THIS YEAR IM 25!!! And NEXT YEAR IM 26! OMG I’m not ready to become this age I still feel in my teens!
Ok let’s not talk about age it’s depressing me so much 😢 I just reckon everybody just needs to learn how to relax and chill. You’ve all worked your BUTTS off for Christmas, so why not have a little ME TIME? It’s been a hectic period so now it’s the time to think of you and have a spa day ! Ooo that just sounds amazing doesn’t and in the own comfort of your home 🙈
So yes honey buns this post is created for you! Use my tips for a lovely spa time !
1) Johnson’s Baby Oil
Firstly run your hot bath, to the right tempitcher for you. As the bath is running add some Johnson’s baby oil! Honestly I do this without fail everytime. The oil will then evenly spread into the water, due to the hot heat.
This will leave your skin soooo moisturised and hydrated!! WAVE GOODBYE to dry patches and flakey skin if you do this all the time – even in the shower! The dryness on your body will eventually disappear !! Johnson’s is a well known brand which was originally created for new babies skin. So why not treat your skin like a new born too? It has no added fragrance. The results will leave you amazed it’s worth a try! This is one product I can not live without and once you try it you’ll be hooked 😉
2) WESTLAB Himalayan Bath Salt
Personally I have never used a Bath Salt before. However having served sooooo many customers at work, buying WESTLAB Himalayan Salt and telling me of the amazing results – I had to buy it !!! It’s interesting as each customer told me the same, it’s amazing for your skin! They all seemed so excited when they talked about it.
Himalayan Salt originated from the Himalayan mountains, 250 million years ago. It is pure and organic – completely natural. The salt was formed before pollution, theirfore was its been preserved as pure. The salt contains over 80 minerals such as Magnesium, potassium and calcium which are needed for the human body.
FIRSTLY LET ME SAY HOW PRETTY MY BATH LOOKED! As the bath salt is pink, it coloured the water ! It’s so easy to use you simply just sprinkle it into your bath. Theirs two ways you can use this product. You can either put 100g-200g for general health wellbeing or 1kg for detoxification. Your skin feels sooo soft and wait for it you actually become abit slimmer ! YESSSSS WHOOOOOPP if you follow the 1kg detoxification instructions their has been scientifically weight loss results!
The book Salt & Water by Dr Barbara Hendel claims that a 30minute soak in a 1kg of Himalayan Bath Salt has the same effect as a three day fast.
The magical pink salt is also a natural healing treatment too !!
3) Castelbel Porto Soap Bar
Now fully relaxed in the bath, Its time to use your fragranced soap bar. I used this one from Castelbel Porto. The brand is from Portugal and sells fragrances for your home and body. I purchased this one at Christmas, I couldn’t resist with the pretty packaging!
Yes I am a sucker for packaging, it’s so pretty I didn’t even want to ruin it! The flower detailing is velvet 😍 when I saw this I fell in love !!! It smells of a mix of raspberry and strawberries – something in the middle but a sweet smell. Once mixed with water it will make a creamy lather which feels gorgeous on the skin and smell so yummy.
4) Gold Collagen Facial Mask
2015 saw the growth of the new beauty facial of the gold collagen facial masks. Celebrities such as Lisa Snowdon jumped on the wagon, claiming their face felt absolutely amazing after awards. I wanted to see what the hype was about and indeed it was so good ! It is currently the hottest skin care trend in Japan.
Unlike celebrities who spend £££’s on theirs, I stumbled across GlySkinCare – at a affordable price of £3.99 from TKMAXXX. The brand is orginated from American and sells a wide range of science based skin products. Theirfore I was really egar to use their gold collagen facial mask. This affordable Gold Collagen Facial Mask is formulated with pure gold, Collagen, Aloe Extract,Allantoin, Rosa Gallica Flower Extract, Vitamins A, C, E, B, and deeply hydrating Hyaluronic Acid to make skin look more refined and younger.
Instructions for use:
- Apply the mask on a cleansed face
- Apply the mask for about 20-30minutes, then carefully peel and remove
- Gently massage in the excess jel
I was so impressed by the results it will leave your skin hydrated, soft and smooth. I did look at my self wearing this and I was in giggles! Not exactly what I’d imagined 😂 Defiantly something you need to use in the bath, you just want to zone out and really have that me time. Busy working life or being a student really takes it toll on you. Sleepless nights and stress are not good for the skin – especially on the face !
*TIP – To get a cooling effect place in the fridge 10minutes before use.
3) NSPA HONEY DAILY REFRESH SHOWER SCRUB
You’ve had your relaxing time, now it’s time to prep your skin! Exfoliating gets rid of any dead skin cells, leaving your new skin layer polished.
I use the NSPA HONEY DAILY REFRESH SHOWER SCRUB. It smells absolutely delicious. It’s soooo sweet that please don’t try to eat it 😂 This scrub is packed with natural vitamins for your skin and plus it includes the rich aroma of golden honey!
Packed with natural vitamins to feed the skin with real fruit goodness and crushed Passion Fruit Seeds; this satisfying crunchy scrub will lift away dull skin and invigorate your senses
Squeeze a portion of the scrub on damp skin, gently in circular motions rub on the body. Rub any areas which you think will need it the most ! Pay more attention to the knees and elbows as these areas need that extra TLC!
I honesty cant phrase NSPA range enough, which I purchased from exclusively to Asda. They are so cheap this scrub was £3. I think I will do a future blog post for these beauties as they need more credit !
4) Dove Summer Glow + Soft Shimmer
I have tried other tanning products before and I swear they all ended up disastrous! Mainly looking tangoed 😂 with hours off scrubbing! I either come out patchy or uneven – especially the on elbows and knees. This is the only tan I like, which is super easy!
It’s a gradual self tan body lotion. I normally put it on a hour and half before I sleep, but please let the application dry first. The results look so natural no silly marks or streaks! You’ll wake up with a beautiful glow!! Also it doesn’t look fake as other tanns do, which I think is mostly important! The scent of the lotion smells like biscuits so I would advise to shower. But don’t worry it wont fade away! Use it everyday, it really adds that fresh sun kissed shimmer on your skin. I opt for the medium to dark. Honestly don’t be afraid thinking you will wake up tangoed in the morning 😂 this will not do that to you! I PINKY PROMISE !!! ✌🏼
5) Bed Time Socks
After your spa we always tend to forget are little feet. They need loving too ! I wear cosy bed time socks. They are indeed luxuriously soft and cosy ! You can these anywhere ! Mine where a gift ☺️
5) Fresh Nails
The index finger was painted with a H&M nail polish for £1.99. It is actually so sparkly something you won’t miss on your finger. Great investment for that adorable price!
The other nail varnish used is from the ASDA George Rrange Naked Nails for £3.00. The nude nails look so sheek ! They compliment and outfit. And their you go perfectly crafted stunning nails ! Looking fresh and ready to show off ! This will leave you on a all time glam high 💅🏽
6) Yardley London – English Lavender Hand Cream
Once your nails are dry simply moisturise your hands before bed. I use the Yardley London English Lavender Hand Cream. This leaves my hands feeling so soft and leaves no greasiness feeling on your hands afterwards.
7) Disney Eye Mask
FINNALLLLYYYY grab your eye mask and go to the lad of nod ! I use this Disney eye sleeping mask, from Asda ! I get easily distracted when trying to go asleep such as my phone ! And now I’m in my final semester at uni I need all the sleep I get! This night mask helps to block any form of light which tends to wake me up! I’d recommend to anybody who can’t sleep.
I hope you enjoyed this post honey buns ! I know it’s long but just wanted to explain my reasons and provide you with the best home spa EVER !!!!
