♥ Feel Good November: My Pamper Evening Essentials ♥


What would a feel good November be without a good old pamper evening? I love pampering sessions, it's the perfect 'me time' to relax after a long day of work. There are some unmissable steps in every pampering routine, and I love trying out new products all the time to see which scents, which formulas I like best. In this post, let me share with you my favourite essential products of the moment!


~ Shower Gel: Cottage, Strawberry and Mint: I very rarely use the same shower gel twice, because there are so many on the market and it's not a product that I put of lot of thought on. However I do care about the scents of my shower gels. This one was given to me as a birthday gift and the strawberry and mint smell is amazing! I don't know if the brand Cottage is available in other countries, but if you get the chance and see these in the shops, just have a sniff! There are many different scents, and I can tell you they are all wonderful.
~ Shampoo: Dove, Advanced Hair Series, Pure Care Sublime Oil: first off, let me tell you about the smell of this shampoo. It. is. incredible! I've never had any shampoo that smelt so good before. If they made this scent in perfume form, I'd totally wear it. This range is fairly new I think, I'd never seen it before and people don't seem to talk about it too much. But it is a really good shampoo, that makes your hair very soft and shiny. Great value for money!
~ Bath: Lush Bath Bombs (here, the IntergalacticBath Bomb): I've put one bath bomb in the photo, but actually Lush bath bombs in general are my ultimate bath essential. I haven't tried this one yet and it's the last one I have, but it smells super minty and will look lovely in the water I'm sure! My favourite Lush bath bomb is the Twilight one. Pop a bath bomb in your bath, add some bubbles and you're ready to go for the most relaxing moment ever!
~ Face mask : Lush, Love Lettuce: this is my favourite fresh mask from Lush, from all those I've tried. I've already reviewed it on the blog; so I won't repeat myself but this mask is exfoliating, brightening, mattifying and refreshing. It makes your skin look amazing, and the lavender scent is really relaxing.
~ Nails: Maybelline Dr Rescue All in One//Barry M, Gelly Hi-Shine nail polish in Chilli: some people hate doing their nails, but I really enjoy the whole process (when the nail polish doesn't take too long to dry, otherwise it gets annoying!). The Barry M nail polish in Chilli is a beautiful brick red that's perfect for autumn. At the moment my base coat is this Maybelline Dr Rescue, which is quite good and cheap. As a top coat, it makes your nail wonderfully shiny!

~ Scent: Ted Baker Body Spray: I couldn't find the exact name of this body spray as Ted Baker has a few different scents out, but remember the cute little packaging of this one and go smell it i  Boots! I can't describe it properly, but it is very feminine, and quite 'grown up' without being too musky and loud. As it's just a body spray it doesn't stay on for hours and hours, but it is a nice one to spray as you get out of the shower to feel fancy!

  1. I haven't heard of many of these products but you describe them so well. The strawberry and mint shower gel sounds really refreshing and I have to agree, painting nails can be so much fun; I used to find it a boring chore but now I like to take my time and do a proper manicure :)
    Lovely post xxx

    1. I'm happy I helped you discover new products you hadn't heard of before! Painting your nails can be a sort of therapy I think haha, especially when you choose the shade carefully and do some nail art from time to time! xx

  3. My favourite part of pampering myself is the bath. I don't take baths very often, so doing it becomes a super nice and important step in the pampering process. I also really like to do my nails, and that nail polish looks so nice, beautiful colour.

    Much love,
    Mona

  5. The Lush bath bomb looks divine. I've only ever used one and it was so calming just to watch it fizz away and they all smell amazing too.

    1. Lush always finds its way to our heart it seems! Whenever I see bath bombs featured in other people's posts I also want to buy them immediately :P xx

  7. I love LUSH bath bombs for a pamper evening. My favorite is "The Comforter". The face mask you mentioned I never tried, I only ever get the "Cosmetic Warrior" which is very nice, but stinks incredibly, so I wouldn't use it for a pamper evening.

    1. The Comforter is so nice, and smells really good! I've never tried Cosmetic Warrior but I know it smells of garlic, I guess it's not too relaxing haha but it must work wonders! xx

  8. Face masks are my favourite part. You just sit back, relax, and let the product do it's work! I haven't tried the LUSH Love Lettuce but I think I have to now, it's sounds awesome. My favourite LUSH mask is Cupcake.
