Here is the third and final part of my series Sort yourself out Sunday. This time it's my bathtime routine. Now I'll admit, I'm not one for baths generally. I prefer showers just out of ease and practicality, but on a Sunday there's nothing I enjoy more than a nice bubble bath, so I thought I'd let you know what I do
I like my baths to be hot because I lay in them a while, so the longer it stays warmer for the better! I run the water then pour in a heap of Imperial Leather Sumptuous Satin Bath Cream. I don't always use this, I just use whatever's lying around. Our bath has a shower head over the top, so I take that off and lay it in the bath with me so I can wash my hair while I'm in the bath. Lazy I know... Again, I'm not too fussy with shampoos but something for coloured hair is a must. Lately I've been using the Herbal Essences Ignite My Colour. It does the job, but I don't think I've ever found a shampoo/conditioner that I've LOVED. I rinse this out then follow on with the conditioner from the same range, except I don't wash it out just yet. I then take my adored Soap & Glory Scrub Of Your Life on a shower puff and get rid of all the dry skin on my arms and legs. It's a nice picture right? I challenge you to find me a better scrub than this.
I then wet my face slightly and give my face a good scrub with the Supaskin Micro-Dermabrasion Cream* (expect a full review soon) for around 2 minutes, rinse it off and then apply my Neutrogena 2 in 1 mask. I leave this on for about 10 minutes while I have a soak, then wash it off with a flannel.
It's at this stage I wash out my condition and then after I've had a nice long soak and I've started to resemble a prune, it's time to get out. After drying myself I apply the E45 Nourish and Restore lotion* all over my body (review here) and my very loved Nivea Regenerating Night Cream to my face. I towel dry my hair and apply the VO5 Miracle Concentrate to the ends of my hair. After the moisturiser has sunk in, I put on a small amount of Superdrug Solait Instant Bronzer in Medium Matte on my arms,legs,neck,chest and face. Basically anywhere I'm likely to show in public.. I chuck on a heaping of Soap & Glory Heel Genius on my feet and pop on my slipper socks.
It's time for bed.. ahhhh
I hope you've enjoyed this mini series, and I hope you all had a wicked weekend
