Review: Bath Time Essentials.

I usually save my Sunday nights for a big, relaxing bath with all my favourite products and candles - it's the best way to relax and pamper yourself for the week ahead. 

I've really been loving bath oils lately, I've been reaching for this SAI SEI Mineral Retreat bath oil regularly - it smells gorgeous and leaves my skin feeling nourished and silky smooth. I usually use oils on my skin as it can get quite dry. This contains a blend of oils to leave you feeling relaxed and cleansed.
I also light my NEOM Sumptuous candle, a lovely citrusy scent that fills the room and makes me feel so relaxed.

For my skin, I use the Emma Hardie Professional Cleansing and Exfoliating System, it contains two parts - a cleansing balm and a tub of rosehip exfoliating seeds. You can use the cleansing balm on its own, which I do occasionally, or mix in the exfoliating seeds.
I warm the cleansing balm in my hands and apply it to my face, it takes off all makeup and really cleanses the skin. I leave it for a few minutes to soften my skin, and then use the buff and polish cleansing cloth in warm water to take it off. My skin absolutely adores this and I have to stop myself from using it every day.
Once a week I'll use it with the seeds for a proper buff.

Next I apply the Elemis Papaya Enzyme peel, a natural exfoliant which aims to smooth and brighten skin. This has been a favourite of mine for some time, it leaves my skin so soft and over time, brighter and more radiant. This is the perfect bath time treat for skin, you can just sit back and relax and let it work.

After the bath, I always reach for my favourite NUXE dry oil, I apply it all over as it's multi-use. I usually apply it to my legs and arms and then spend a few minutes massaging it into my face after toning. There's quite a lot of hype surrounding this product and it really is one that's worth every penny. I find dry oils so beneficial and usually reach for this every day.

  1. your bath routine sounds so relaxing x

  2. All those products sound luxuriously lovely and perfect for a Sunday night pamper! I wish I had the time to devote to a weekly soak, though. I haven't had a relaxing bath in months!

  3. Oh, so luxurious! I wish I had all these products to pamper myself with as I usually just use Lush products! I'm curious to try out body oils though, they seem so lovely and I'm an addict to face serums, so I assume they're somewhat similar. Lovely post, as always!

  4. Sweet idea for a post! I have a weakness for bath products, although my mom won't let me light candles because I'm too clumsy ha! X

  5. i never really do a Sunday bath to relax and prepare my self for the week ahead but i think i will do tonight and make it a regular thing because it sounds like just the thing i need


  6. Looks like you have very luxurious baths! ^.^ I am more of a shower girl personally.
