It doesn’t happen that often that I close the bath door and indulge in some me (and only me) time but recently I’m feeling pretty stressed and bad mood is always around the corner and when my body feels physically tired all I really want is some pamper time. You know when you buy all those very expensive bath products that you feel guilty to use up and keep there for those special moments? This is what I’m talking about. I’m not one that can really sit down and relax for a couple of hours even those times, but I like to have that proper half an hour for myself once in a while and completely forget about anything else – and I really find being able to have some quality me time can be so good for my body and soul!
This is maybe the only pamper thing I actually do on a regular basis (read: once a week), but since my pamper time always starts with a bath or shower (shower most of the times), a good exfoliation is needed. I’m building this weird love affair with any scrub from & Other Stories and after trying and loving their Sugar Crush scrub, I’m now pretty much obsessed with their Equatorial Dreams offering and please do yourself a favor and go ahead and stock up on this one now that’s on sale because you can’t say no to a deliciously scented and good quality body scrub for only £3! This is one of those products that smell very intense, so much that it totally fills the bath with its amazing and tropical scent every time I use it in the shower – and this is what makes a good pamper product. Plus this is even more exfoliant than the others I tried from them, so if you’re looking for soft limbs, you can’t go wrong!
Not to mention the tropical orchids scent pairs so good with the floral rose scent of the REN Moroccan Rose Otto Body Wash which has a spicy and warm scent that compliments so well the freshness of the scrub. I believe I found out how heaven smells like…
As I said I’m not a fan of laying down when waiting for a face mask to work, I much more prefer being busy with something else always focusing on myself, so this is the time when I mess around with nail polishes and other girly stuff, but what I can’t forget recently is moisturise the rest of my body because I don’t ever do it and it really needs some attentions. Nope, it’s just that I have bought this Laura Mercier Crème Brulee Soufflé Body Crème because… who would say no to smelling like a creme brulee?! And I just want to apply it every single time, especially if I have an evening pamper session because I love how my pjs and bed linen smell for days after I get inside of them with this on. This is the answer if you’re pretty lazy when it comes to moisturise your body like I do, no joking!
What do you like to do when you decide to have some ‘me time’?
