I love a good pamper evening, especially when it’s Christmas. There’s nothing better than having a little pamper just before Christmas Day and enjoying all the festive movies and drinks. So here is how I like to do a festive Pamper Night-in.
For me a Pamper night-in always starts off with a bath. For me Christmas is all about relaxing and slowing down from our busy lives to spend some time with loved ones, so I love using the L’Occitane Relaxing Shower Gel. I know this product is meant for the shower but I love washing myself with this shower gel and adding in some Himalayan bath salts too. For me these two products make a lovely relaxing bath.
Once I get out of the bath, its time to moisturise my whole body. I have been loving The Body Shop Glazed Apple Body Butter, which was part of their Christmas range a couple of years ago. I love how Christmassy this body butter smells and I wake up in the morning with super soft legs, perfect for all those Christmas parties. I will then normally use a face mask, to give my skin some added moisture and then its onto a relaxing evening.
I love watching Christmas movies in the evening, I have about 7 movies which I will rotate between. I recently discovered The Holiday, which is the perfect movie for a cosy night in when you want to watch a Romantic Comedy. If I am looking for a more Christmas movie then I love watching Arthur Christmas, The Grinch, or my all time favourite The Polar Express. Just before getting into bed and watching a movie I love making Mulled Wine or Mulled Punch, depending on how I feel. It’s one of my favourite festive drinks that immediately lifts my mood and makes me feel so festive, especially with a Christmas movie on.
Just before going to sleep I will always put on the L’Occitane Shea Butter Hand Cream, this is brilliant for anyone who suffers from dry hands. I always put on lots of this at night and in the morning my hands are so soft. You can also use it during the day as it isn’t greasy, which I like. Then I will apply the Glossier Balm Dotcom, which has become my new go to lip balm. It has a lovely thick texture that really helps hydrate and nourish your lips. I use this every morning and evening and it has stopped my lips from feeling really sore and cracked.
The Land of Nod
The final thing I do just before falling asleep is spaying my pillow with the This Works Deep Sleep Pillow Spray. This stuff is amazing at completely relaxing you and makes you fall asleep so much quicker then usually. This pillow spray smells like a field of lavender and works wonders at relaxing you and allowing you to get a great nights sleep, perfect for Christmas Eve!
So you now know what I will be doing towards the end of this week. I would love to know which product you love using in a pamper evening?
