BLOGMAS Day 10 // Winter Pampering Essentials

Hey guys! As the weather is so harshly changing, it’s cold, dark and a little bit dreary, I think that now is the perfect time for me to share my essentials for having a luxury Winter pamper night!Winter Pamper Essentials (1)So naturally, what is a pamper night without a bath? Insane. That’s what a pamper night without a bath is. I didn’t remember to take a picture of my bath, but I used Lush’s Magic Of Christmas bubble bar, as you can see I mentioned it in my Winter & Christmas Lush Haul. (And I would highly recommend it, as it provided a huge amount of bubbles, and left me smelling of cinnamon.)

So while you’re running your bath, this is when I remove my makeup and do a quick cleanse, so that while I’m in the bath my skin can breathe and fully appreciate the, yes you guessed it, face mask. I have really been loving cucumber face masks because it’s cooling and soothing, which is great at combating the harshness that your skin encounters with the cold outdoors and the central heating indoors.

Next it’s all about relaxing, enjoying the bath (perhaps with some Family Guy on my tablet, I’m not denying it.) Then using a body scrub, so that your skin can really be softened by the bath, leaving you feeling like a brand new person.Winter Pamper Essentials (2)Once you’re out of the bath, the next thing I like to do is moisturise. Lately I’ve been really loving the original Zoella Beauty scent, so the Creamy Madly Dreamy is my one of my favourite moisturisers to use once I’m out of the bath, for my body alongside Soap & Glory’s The Righteous Butter, and a little bit of Babylips to moisturise my lips.

After that, I use a hand cream, because this time of year can be quite drying on the hands, one that I really enjoy is Hand Food by Soap & Glory, because it’s not too heavy, so it dries relatively quickly, and it smells amazing. Then finally moisturising my face, with Nivea Sensitive, I’ve been gravitating towards the day cream more often lately, because the night cream can be too heavy and clog my pores.

I also really like to do my nails after a bath on a pamper night, but you can read all about that in detail on my Best Pamper Night Of All Damn Time post!


That’s it for my Winter Pamper Night Essentials, let me know how you pamper yourself at this time of year in the comments!

Highlight Your Natural Beauty

When I started out this blog, I enjoyed wearing makeup, but as I have continued on with it for many months now, I’ve fallen in love with it. Now this means that I very quickly had to learn how to take better care of my skin, so that when I was wearing makeup, I was wearing it to have fun and accentuate my features and skin, not hide them.

So today I’m sharing with you guys my go to essentials for how I take care of my skin.Highlight Your Natural Beauty

Cleansing | I’ve said it many times before, but with wearing makeup, comes the responsibility of properly removing it and cleansing your skin of impurities. I don’t have a particular strenuous and crippling cleansing routine, because one of my essentials is the Nivea 3 in 1 Micellar Water, which makes the whole process easy and quick.

I also like to use the Nivea Soft Moisturiser, which as I have also mentioned before, is very light and gentle on the skin, and not greasy and heavy like many moisturisers. 

I also make sure I’m taking care of my skin from the inside out. Ensuring I drink as much water as possible. It really does have an unbelievable effect on your skin, that you wouldn’t believe until you’ve committed yourself to drinking more.Highlight Your Natural BeautySkin Treat | In and out I also like to give my skin a little treat with a face mask. I feel like this really helps my skin on a much deeper level than simple cleansing. I definitely feel like an occasional skin treat like this ensures my skin is clear and feels amazing. This leads me to feel more confident in it, and not like I need to cover it up.

I think another product that is absolutely perfectly suited for a skin treat such as this is Glossier’s Moisturising Moon mask it does every little thing that I like to do for my skin. It “dives beneath the surface to instantly plump skin up with hydration, helping to smooth fine lines and restore elasticity.” And “works quietly behind the scenes to gently brighten and even out your complexion, while honey and aloe act as soothing agents.”Highlight Your Natural BeautyFlawless Finish | Now obviously some days you can feel a little unhappy with your skin. You might be having a random breakout, or suffer with a little redness, it happens to us all. So these products are my handbag essentials for those times. I like to wear a BB Cream as opposed to a foundation because they feel much lighter on the skin, and they have so many more skin benefits, rather than just clogging up your pores. I also like a light concealer because it’s perfect for if you’ve just got a touch of darkness under your eyes, or a little pesky red spot. With a light concealer, you can cover those tiny things, but still allow the rest of your naturally skin shine.

Finally, when I do chose to wear these products, I like to apply them with a beauty blender, because the product is tapped onto the skin, not smeared into your pores, leaving you with a naturally flawless finish.


Those are my essentials for highlighting, not hiding your natural beauty. Thank you to Glossier.com for working with me on this post. Let me know in the comments below what your go to skincare products/essentials are!

And, as they say at Glossier, I leave you with a great motto:Highlight Your Natural Beauty
