Happy Friday loves!
I’ve never written a post like this before, purely because I’ve never really had a pamper routine before. However since expanding into beauty, I now have so many wonderful products to use that I thought I’d show you what I’ve been loving recently.
I always pamper myself in the evenings; lets face it who has time to do this in the mornings? So I make sure I slip into something comfortable and something I don’t mind getting dirty, as this can become quite a messy task. A cosy bath robe/dressing gown is always my go-to choice of attire and the one I’m wearing today is from a luxury home ware brand called Rooi. Rooi offers everything from bedding, towels, fragrances and even pet accessories. I’m wearing the Brampton robe with a set of the Brampton towels, which are heavy-duty luxury hotel quality products FYI.
My first step is to cleanse my face, after 5 days of non-stop work, my face is usually one big fat oily mess! I use my Magnatone to cleanse my face every morning but I also use it before applying any beauty products/treatments on my skin. I received this for Christmas and have been loving it ever since. A great alternative to the Clarisonic Mia (mine broke after 2 years FYI). I use it in combination with my Soap & Glory face soap and clarity face wash, which has micro scrub beads leaving your skin ultra fresh!
Next step is to apply a facemask to extract all the dirt from my pores. Facemasks are so trendy at the moment and there are tons on the market that I’m eager to try out! The one I’m using today is Soap & Glory’s The Fab Pore, which is a super minty mud based mask (sometimes it feels like I’m applying toothpaste on my face). After washing the mask off, I moisturize my face with Garnier’s night bomb to hydrate my skin throughout the night.
Then I move on to my legs, despite the crappy weather in London I still like my legs to be summer ready (just incase the sun pops out). Did you know that Magnatone can be used on the body as well as the face? It has different settings, which allows you to apply the correct pressure on different parts of your body, such as your face, legs and even your feet! I exfoliate my legs with my magnatone and an Apricot body scrub for fresh, smooth skin.
My final step is a simple one, I like to occasionally wash my hair. I say occasionally because you can’t wash extensions too frequently, therefore some week I miss this step. Recently I’ve been using my new OGX Beauty hair products. This shampoo and conditioner is from their extra strength range and is infused with argan oil, perfect for my hair type. If you’re looking for hydrating hair products, I definitely recommend these. Then I simply brush out my weave hair with my Tangle Teezer. I’ve heard so much about Tangle Teezer’s over the years but was always sceptical about using them on my hair type. However now they’ve released a new model specially designed for Afro, thick, curly hair. Definitely one to try out ladies!
How do you like to pamper yourself during the summer?
