I love a good bath. There’s nothing more relaxing than selecting your favourite bath bomb, pouring yourself a glass of wine and taking some time out to read or catch up on the blogging world. I think it is important to give ourselves some ‘me time’ every now and again, life can be hectic and stressful and self care can make all the difference!
Pampering is obviously essential, and I like to take lots of face masks, candles and scrubs in with me to make sure I am fully zen. There are a couple of things that I always reach for as my bath time favourites, which I am going to share with you today!
Pretty much any bath bomb from LUSH
I thought about writing about a specific bath bomb…but let’s face it, they are all great! The bath bomb pictured is ‘Shoot For The Stars’ which is part of the Christmas range, but some of my other favourites include ‘The Experimenter’ and ‘Intergalatic’. Basically, if a bath bomb is going to make my water look like a unicorn then it is a winner. I recommend you go and stock up at your local store, I like to have a good stash on the go!
Marks & Spencer Alphabet Range Scented Candle
I always have one of these candles knocking around after Christmas, and they are perfect to accompany any bath. With hints of grapefruit and ginger, they set the mood – plus I love anything with my initials on! At only £6 these have the added bonus of being affordable as well as extremely Instagrammable.
LUSH Cup O’ Coffee Face and Body Mask
I am a coffee addict at the best of times, so a face mask that smells like espresso ticks all my boxes. I don’t really use face masks when I’m not in the bath as I find them a hassle to wash off, but when the water is right there in front of you it makes it so much easier to slather one on. I apply this 15 minutes before I get out of the bath, so that my face is nice and refreshed for when I put my onesie on and sit down with a cup of tea afterwards.
Laura Mercier Almond Coconut Milk Body Creme
Yep, you read that right….almond coconut! It definitely smells as good as it sounds. I bought this creme as part of a Laura Mercier bath set in the Space NK sale – and I cannot get over how luxurious these products are. They also come with a handy ‘honey dipper’ to avoid messy application. I smooth this on all over before bed and I always wake up the next day smelling amazing.
This Works Deep Sleep Pillow Spray
You might have already heard of the This Works Deep Sleep Pillow Spray – I am always reading rave reviews from bloggers and beauty addicts alike, and for good reason! As the brand name suggests…it really does work! After my relaxing evening bathing and chilling, I’ll get into some comfy pyjamas and spray this all over my pillow before hitting the sack. The lavender sends me off to sleep quickly and I wake up feeing refreshed, rested and ready to start the day.
