Since coming to Uni and having my bathroom only one footstep away from my bed and having most of my skincare items pretty much in eyesight, I have started making myself a little Sunday night routine. During the week I can honestly never be bothered to put on a face mask or use more than one moisturiser, I do sometimes exfoliate but that's as fancy as it'll get. So when it comes to Sunday I want to pamper my skin and get ready for a week at Uni.
The first product I use is my solid cinnamon shampoo bar from Lush. I don't use this very often simply because I don't want to use it up quickly, but when I use it I absolutely love it. I really like the subtle spicy scent and the way it just lathers up really quickly and with little product. When I get out the shower I always use a few pumps of my Kérastase hair oil which is my favourite hair oil that I've ever had. I received this mini version in a monthly subscription box and have fallen in love with it. It leaves my hair really soft and shiny and I'm honestly dreading the moment I run out of it!
To go with the spiciness of my shampoo bar, I use the Hot Toddy* shower gel which I got when I went to the Lush event in Portsmouth back in Autumn. Although we're coming closer to spring now, I love the cosy, wintery scent on the Sunday night when I just want to be cuddled up under my blanket. What I also love about this shower gel is that the scent actual stays on my skin and doesn't fade after I get out of the shower. To moisturise my body I use the Vanilla scented body butter from The Body Shop* which I got in the Glossybox a while ago.
I currently use a coconut exfoliator from My little Box which Estelle kindly gave me as she didn't like it & knew that I loved coconut. When I rinsed that off, I follow up with my self heating facial mask from Soap & Glory No clogs allowed, the minty scent feels really refreshing and leaves my skin completely cleansed.
As my face usually feels kind of tight after using this mask, I follow up with a moisturiser by L'Occitane which I also got from Estelle. I love the thickness of it, it makes my skin so so soft! And finally, I pop some of the Benefit* It's potent eye cream under my eyes to get rid of those dark circles.
To finish off my Sunday night I usually make myself a cup of tea (I have really been liking the Apple crunch one from Twining's recently!), turn my fairy lights on and sit in bed with a book, currently Fleur de Force's Glam Guide which I have really been enjoying.
