Although holidays are relaxing mine was actually quite busy and no where near as relaxing as I’d hoped, I also tried not to pack too many beauty products which meant my pampering treat products had to stay behind.
I’m a bath person so after a whole month worth of showers I couldn’t wait for a long relaxing bath and used one of my Aromatherapy Associates Oils £33. I relaxed in the bath with the new Hello! Fashion Monthly Magazine which I think is worth mentioning as I’d stopped buying magazines as I simply think they’re getting too expensive but at £1 monthly it’s actually a really nice fashion magazine with great beauty pages.
Over the summer I found that the ends of my hair were getting a little dry due to the blonde and therefore went for the Tigi Catwalk Violet Mask for some TLC. I also find my hair sometimes goes into shock when making the transition back to hard water after four weeks of soft water and for this I always go back to Nioxin Diaboost £28.35 to help encourage hair growth and I use this for a few months. To help get my hair a little shinier and protected I’ve been using the Beauty Protector Protect & Oil £16 on wet hair.
Since my skin has been in the sun a little it’s also been feeling a little dry on both my face and body. On my face I used the Gazelli Volcanic Mud Mask £40 and Neals Yard Beauty Sleep Concentrate £31.50 an overnight treatment which is also beautifully relaxing in the evening.
I’ve been alternativing between Jurlique Rose Body Oil £38 and Soap & Glory Smoothie Star £10.50 depending on the time of the day. Soap & Glory Smoothie Star is my favourite for during the day although Jurlique Rose Body Oil is an absolutely beautiful treatment for the evening.
On my nails I’ve been reaching for the Nails Inc Gel Effect polish in Uptown £14, the colour is beautiful, super shiny and lasts a little longer than normal polish which is exactly what I look for.
