The Mid Week Refresh.


I'm not sure what it is about Wednesday's, but it seems so many of us go on a mid-week slump. We're ready for the weekend but it's still so far away. It's the perfect time for a bath and a little pamper session, so I thought I'd talk through everything I'll be using tonight..

I start off running the bath and popping in my latest Lush buy (I'm planning an early morning trip!) and pop on a face mask. If I wasn't in the bath I'd be doing a double, but as I am it'll just be the one, the Nuxe Creme Fraiche Mask. This arrived a few days ago in the Look Fantastic Beauty box, and I'm really looking forward to trying this one out being quite a newbie to Nuxe. I'll be giving my hair a wash in the bath too, and pop on a hair mask. I've forgotten about these recently but I find a weekly use of Bumble & Bumble's Quenching mask* leaves my hair feeling so soft, shiny and nourished, which is essential for someone who uses so much heat on their hair.

Whilst they're both working their magic, I'm gonna give my body a good scrub to get rid of all the horrible winter dry skin with The Body Shop Coconut scrub. I absolutely love anything coconut scented so this is immediately a winner for me, but it does such a good job at removing any dead skin cells and making my skin feel gorgeous. I'm not sure why I've included two body lotions, probably 'cause I'll decide on the day which one to use, but I know I'll end up going for the Laura Mercier Creme Brulee Souffle, that one you're all sick of hearing about! There's nothing more luxurious and it's certainly perfect for a mid-week pick me up. I'm loving Vanilla at the moment too though, so the Korres Vanilla Plum body lotion would be a gorgeous lighter option.

Hopping in the bath with a few candles to have a little pamper is my perfect way to end a Wednesday. Are you planning a pamper this week?
