Bathtime Pampering

Sunday, 21 April 2013





Hey Ladies! I hope you've all had amazing weekends, I spent mine meeting my new flatmates for the first time (Nerve-wracking!), flat hunting in London and attending a 50th birthday party so its fair to say I'm a little bit tired! One of the things I love about being home from Uni is a nice relaxing bath so I thought I would share how I pamper myself and relax. 

One product which I love to run a bath with is the Johnsons Bedtime Baby Bath, it may sound odd because it is a product for babies but the smell is so relaxing and its so soothing on your skin, and who doesn't want baby soft skin?! But no bath would be right without a nice candle burning away. I love this one by the White Company at the moment, its called flowers and has a really nice floral soapy smell. I like fresh smells rather than sweet smells in my bathroom so this one is perfect and I think the simple design looks really elegant on the side of the bath. 

I love to give my face a good clean while I'm in the bath because its one of the few times I'm relaxed while going through my skincare routine without the need to rush it. I scrub my face using 'The greatest scrub of all' by Soap and Glory because its the only scrub I've found that really works for my skin and always leaves it feeling clean and fresh without being dried out, you can see my full review of this product here. After this I would love to use a moisturizing face mask but I've ran out at the moment and can't decide which one to get next, any recommendations? So instead of using a face mask I use Simple hydrating face moisturizer in place of a face mask. I just put loads of this on my face and leave it there while I'm soaking in the bath to sink into my skin, after about 15 mins I just wash the excess off and my skin is left feeling baby soft. 

For my body I'm using Marc Jacobs Daisy body wash and luxury body creme at the moment. I'm a great lover of the Daisy perfume so I was thrilled when I got this lovely gift set for Christmas. The body wash lathers up really well and has tiny shimmery flecks in it so it leaves your skin smelling great and with a hint of shimmer and the body creme has the same shimmery effect which is great as a little treat! 

I love the Jo Malone bath oils as a treat once in a while, these ones are Lime Basil and Mandarin and smell really perfumed and luxurious, kind of a floral citrus, but its definitely more of a 'night' smell rather than one I would use in the day. However, these are quite expensive so I only use them as an occasional treat. And how could I not include this cute little rubber duck, I got this one as a present in my stocking one year but I know you can get them from places like John Lewis and Selfridges and they come in loads of designs! 

What products do you love to pamper yourself with at bathtime?
