The Mid Week Pick Me Up's

I normally save my pamper sessions for a Sunday night, but lately I've been so busy and feeling pretty run down because of it, so a mid week session has been very beneficial for me. Sometimes a weekly pamper session just isn't enough, and treating myself to one mid week makes all the difference and makes me feel much more relaxed. 

I start by running the bath and popping in my favourite Lush Bubble Bar, The Comforter (£4.75). It smells so lovely and makes a bubble bath look even more inviting. While the water is running, I remove my make up using the Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm (£22) which is by far my most loved cleansing balm. It melts away every trace of make up and leaves my skin feeling so soft and squeaky clean. I then apply the Aesop Parsley Seed Facial Cleansing Masque (£27) which works really well in ten minutes to decongest the skin and leave it feeling purified. I'm really into using clay masks because my skin is quite oily and I'm always battling those pesky blackheads! As the mask gets to work, I take a teaspoon sized blob of the Charles Worthington Moisture Seal Intense Rescue Melting Balm (£10.99) and work it through the ends of my hair for a deep conditioning treat. The formula is made up of a blend of sumptuous butters and exotic oils which get to work quickly, helping the hair soak up all the nourishment it needs. My brittle and over styled hair absolutely loves this stuff.

After my relaxing bath, I slather my whole body with The Body Shop Vitamin E Body Lotion (£8). This has been a favourite of mine for years and I always come back to it time and time again.  This heavenly lotion absorbs into the skin like a dream and leaves it feeling beautifully soft, smooth and hydrated. Plus the bottle is super pretty too! I then warm a few drops of the Balance Me Radiance Face Oil (£30) between my palms and gently massage it into my face and neck. This oil feels lovely and light and absorbs beautifully into the skin, giving my complexion a sheer and healthy glow. Don't be put off using facial oils if your skin is prone to oiliness and congestion, they work to balance the skin and keep it hydrated too. 

Once I've dried my hair and climbed into my favourite pyjamas, I kick back with a cup of tea and some Netflix and paint my nails. I've been wearing the Essie Nail Polish in Fifth Avenue (£7.99) for months now, it's the perfect red shade if you ask me!

Do you treat yourself to a mid week pamper session? 


  1. I love a good mid week pamper. Clay masks work really well for my oily, problem skin. I really want to try this Aesop one. I'm loving Sanctuary Spa's 5 Minute Thermal Detox at the moment x

  2. It's really great! I did a full review on it on my blog a while ago, here's the link if you want to check it out;

  3. I'm going to steal this idea of a mid-week pamper - sounds perfect. I love the comforter bubble bar so much, smells so good & makes loads of bubbles. x
