A Cosy Winter Evening Routine...


Happy New Year everyone! NYE is usually a quiet one for me as I like to just spend the evening relaxing and having a little pamper. I had such a lovely, relaxing evening yesterday - I went to the cinema to see Little Women, had Chinese for dinner and came home to have a pamper session, watch a film and ate my leftover Christmas chocolate stash... bliss! 

I'm all set for the new year now but before the new year properly starts I have one more day of relaxing to enjoy with my family. We're spending our New Year's Day having brunch and then I'm looking forward to another chilled evening tonight as I have to be up early tomorrow to get back to a full day of study for my exams next week. 

For the first post of the year, I thought I'd share my cosy winter evening routine essentials that have been seeing me through the festive December evenings...

You can't have a pamper night without some cosy candles filling the house with a lovely scent! Recently I was kindly sent some wax melts from Glam Wax which smell dreamy and are the perfect cosy Winter evening routine essential. They're shaped like a chocolate bar which looks so cute, although they nearly look good enough to eat haha! 

I received two of their pink snap bars Bombshell* and Flower Boom* as I love pink and sweet and floral scents but they have such a good variety of colours and scents to choose from so there's something to suit everyone. Bombshell is a gorgeous sweet fruity scent with notes of strawberry, pineapple, peony, lily and orchid whilst Flower Boom is a floral scent with a woody base to it and notes of mandarin, jasmine, orchid, rose and patchouli. I love both scents but Bombshell is definitely my favourite of the two! 

They're made from 100% luxury soy wax, each bar has 50 hours burn time, are suitable for asthma and migraine sufferers and they're so affordable at only £3. It's such a lovely brand and they would be a lovely gift idea too.

A pampering skincare routine is another essential for my cosy evening routine and recently, I've been trying some new products that I got in the Black Friday sale. Firstly, I repurchased my favourite cleanser the Origins Original Skin Cleansing Jelly, a nourishing gel cleanser that gently cleanses skin whilst leaving it feeling silky and looking a bit more fresh and radiant - it's a staple in my routine for sure!

My favourite face mask at the moment is the Fresh Rose Face Mask. I've been dying to try Fresh products and I'll have a full post up about the products I'm trying in a few weeks but I wanted to mention this mask for now as it's definitely the standout pick for me! Infused with real rose petals and rose water to hydrate, soothe and brighten skin, this luxurious mask has been such a treat for my skin. 

I'll finish off my skincare routine with the Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Pink Juice Moisturiser for some extra hydration. I also have a blog post about this brand coming within the next couple of weeks too but for now I'll say this, the lightweight gel moisturiser is perfect for soothing skin from the harsh effects of Winter and it has watermelon extract which provides the skin with vitamins, amino acids and antioxidants as well as hyaluronic acid to plump and hydrate skin.  

I usually finish off my evening routine with a tv series or film and at the moment I'm loving The Crown season 3! I didn't get a chance to watch it in November/December with I'm A Celeb and watching Christmas films too. I'll also probably treat myself to some chocolate this evening... seeing as I haven't had any chocolate since last year *insert winking emoji* I have a box of Butler's chocolates which I got for Christmas that I've been saving for this evening and I have a new pair of pyjamas to wear too so it's going to be such a cosy first evening of the year!


Wishing you all a happy new year! And I can't wait to share lots more blog posts in 2020!

What are your cosy winter evening routine essentials?

Love,
Clíona xx
