Pamper Products & Happy International Women's Day!

Some days you just need to throw on a bath, pamper your skin and relax. Today I'm going to give a little mini review of my favourite pamper products that I reach for when I'm feeling like I need a bit of TLC!

As you've probably seen before (in my February Favourites), I absolutely adore my Calm One Calm All Bubble Bath by Soap And Glory. Not something I would usually buy myself, I received this as a Christmas gift and I just love it. It feels so luxurious and smells just gorgeous - a definite win-win. Next up is my Nip & Fab Bath Lily. Up until recently, I never bothered with bath lilies at all - I just didn't see much point in them. I was so wrong. This one is so soft, and will leave your skin feeling completely pampered. If you're looking to buy one, The Body Shop lilies are very similar and are great value within the gift sets they usually have on promotion. And last but not least, the No.7 Beautiful Skin Hydration Mask. As someone who has very dry skin, this nourishing mask instantly relieves any sort of tight or uncomfortable feeling which can often happen. It's a very fresh feeling formula which I love to use to awaken and sooth my skin.

Recently I've been also absolutely loving steaming my face with a few drops of lavender oil - I would definitely recommend it if you tend to find your pores can get clogged quite easily! It really opens them up and is a great way to prep the skin before a face mask, particularly if you ever use mud mask. The steam opens up the pores which allows the mask to withdraw all the nasty stuff more effectively.

So there you have it! What pamper products do you tend to reach for when you want to relax?

Also I just wanted to say Happy International Women's Day to all of my followers. An incredibly important day which to me highlights the importance of believing in yourself, knowing you can achieve whatever you put your mind to, and that you can have an impact on the future. Most importantly, being grateful and appreciative to the amazing women in your life.

Hope you're all having a lovely weekend!
