Weekend Essentials | The Pamper Session

Weekends were made for rest and relaxation. And what better way to relax than having a lovely pamper session with your favourite pamper products......

Favourite pamper products

   ........


First of all, I hope you all had a lovely weekend however you spent it. Yesterday we headed over to my sister's house to have tea and scones for Mother's Day. It was lovely to spend some time with my family. I feel like I've constantly been on the go for the last few weeks so it was great to be able to fully relax. And those scones! There aren't enough words to describe how delicious they were! My sister is quite the baker! You can head over to my Instagram to see some pics of what I got up to this weekend. I also made a snapchat account (clionahill) and I'm obsessed! 

You can't have a pamper session without a bath so I lit a candle and as the water was running I had a hard task of choosing what bubble bath/bath bomb I was going to use. I couldn't decide so I went for a mixture of two - Sure, why not? *wink wink* The first of the two is an old-time favourite in the form of Soap & Glory's Calm One Calm All Bubble Bath. Not only does it create loads of bubbles but it also leaves my skin feeling silky soft after I've stepped out of the bath. It smells gorgeous too.
Next I threw in a bath bomb from Lush - I'm still working my way through their Christmas stash and I decided to go for the Butterbear bath bomb. It's nothing fancy, it doesn't have much of a scent (a very subtle vanilla scent) and it doesn't change the colour of the bath water. However, it does contain skin loving ingredients such as cocoa butter which nourishes the skin.

Lush bubblegum lip scrub

Whilst in the bath I applied a hydrating face mask from Superfacialist By Una Brennan. I have a full review of this coming up along with the hydrating oil so I won't give away too much but what I will say is.... it's a dry skin saviour! It leaves it feeling hydrated and plumped and completely gets rid of my dry flaky patches. I'm not too keen on the scent though - It's a bit granny-like and overpowering. Not good but the way it leaves my skin feeling and looking is enough to win me over!

As soon as I got out of the bath it was time to treat my lips as they've also been feeling very dry from the cold harsh weather. Firstly, I gave them a quick scrub with the Lush Bubblegum Lip Scrub (full review). This little pot of magic will banish those pesky dry flaky patches revealing smooth, soft lips. It has a gorgeous sweet bubblegum scent that'll have you craving a bag of pic n' mix ;-)
And lastly it was time to moisturise those lips with The Body Shop Shea Lip Butter. It has a rich buttery texture which just melts onto the lips leaving them silky soft. The warm sweet nutty scent is to die for!

I ended the evening with some cosy pjs, a cuppa and a few episodes of Mr Selfridge - Bliss!


What are your pamper evening essentials?

Love,
Cliona xx

    1. I'd saved it for months as it was way too cute to use! Really didn't want to use it... but the time came ;-) It was really nice - Made my skin feel so soft! I'm dying to go in and buy all of their Easter range, haha! x

  3. With how I'm feeling right now a pamper session is exactly what I need - so thank you for the inspiration of one :-) I have to say I've never really ventured out to try lush products but I must say they seem lovely and may have to try their bath bombs and lip scrub out. As for the Superfacialist By Una Brennan I'll be sure to stay posted! I suffer with extremely dry and sensitive skin with flaky patches but still haven't found the remedy. So would love to find out what it's all about! Great post.
