Beauty Pampering

I love a night in for a little beauty pampering – Giving my hair, skin, and even nails some much-deserved TLC.

I’m actually not sure if my love of pampering rituals came from my long-term obsession with masks, or if the masks came first. As with the chicken and egg, we may never know…

Here are a few of my all time favorites, which are just part of the reason I’m on my second year running of Sephora VIB Rouge status…

Eyes:

Murad Eye Lift Treatment – I read about this one in a magazine and immediately went onto the Sephora website to buy it. Wasn’t disappointed.

Once I’ve cleansed I’ll dap on a rich eye cream for the night. I’m currently on a bit of an Origins eye kick – Going back and forth between Origins Plantscription Anti-Aging Eye Treatment and the Origins GinZing Refreshing Eye Cream. The latter is my go-to when I’m traveling to help save the delicate skin under my eyes!

Face:

First I do a deep exfoliation with either the Korres Wild Rose Daily Brightening & Refinishing Buff Cleanser {my trip to Greece last year re-ignited my love affaire with Korres!} or Ole Henriksen Walnut Complexion Scrub.

So good.

Then I apply a super lux face mask. Which is my favorite part of my beauty pampering evenings!! A few of my current favorites are:

Afterwards I lather on an intensive moisture like Josie Maran Pure Argan Intensive Hydrating Treatment. Or sometimes I’ll wear an overnight mask like Peter Thomas Roth Vitamin C Brightening Sleeping Mask. I just put a hand towel over my pillow to avoid getting product on it!

Hair:

Since I’m only washing my hair 1-2x a week these days – Because my hair stylist is the boss of me – I like to do a deep conditioning mask on cleaning day. I love the Argan Oil of Morocco Intense Moisturizing Treatment. A bonus of that one is that you can find it at your local drug store or Target!

Once my hair is clean, I apply an oil-based product to the roots. I adore the Macadamia Natural Oil Deep Repair Masque.

Skin:

Bathes are a key part of my nighttime ritual and I love to make them extra relaxing and rejuvenating with oils or salts. If I’m extremely sore & in need of some help with recovery, I’ll add Epsom salts. And if I had a stressful day or am having trouble sleeping that week, I’ll add peppermint essential oils. Bonus points if you add a candle to bath time for pampering night!

I’m a bit of a coconut fanatic and after my nightly bath I smother myself with Trader Joe’s Coconut Body Butter which is a magical, wonderful thing that I highly recommend.
