Cosy Sunday Picks

Now that Autumn is upon us, I have been loving the idea of a Sunday packed full of homemade baking, endless pampering and long, brisk walks to catch Pokemon. Sunday is all about preparing myself for the up and coming week and making the most of my day off. 

A Sunday wouldn't be the same without a bath full of luscious bubbles to sink yourself into. If it isn't a Lush Bubble Bar I'm using, then it will definitely be the Laura Mercier Creme Brûlée Honey Bath I reach for. This sweet scented offering delivers soft bubbles which hydrate and linger on the skin for hours afterwards. I like to light a few candles, The White Company being my go-to at the moment for fresh, yet Autumn appropriate scents that fill the room instantly. 

I like to thoroughly treat my skin on a Sunday, making sure I use a nourishing cleanser to double cleanse my skin, followed by a detoxing mask and a layer of hydrating moisturiser to follow. The Aesop Primrose Masque* has been a favourite of mine over the past month due to it's exfoliating formula and cleansing properties which rid my skin of of impurities. The Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel has also made a reappearance in my skincare routine as the nourishing oil formula gets rid of my makeup and transforms my lacklustre looking complexion. 

As for my body, I like to exfoliate and then follow up with a hydrating thick layer of the Lush Ro's Argan Body Conditioner to tackle my dry areas and reveal nourished, brighter looking skin. Although this offering is an easy to use in-shower moisturiser, if my skin is still feeling like it is in need of an extra treat then I always reach for the Dove Goodness Body Cream* 

If I do decide to venture outside, then I almost always opt for a lightweight, yet dewy base, then pair it with a light slick of mascara, a neat line of eyeliner and then a nude or, if I'm really bold, a berry lip. The Tanya Burr Birthday Suit Palette is a perfect addition to my Sunday makeup routine if I want to add definition to my eyes, yet want to keep my makeup looking natural. The Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencils are an easy essential of mine as they can be applied quickly and, with the variety of hues, there is one to suit every occasion and season. 

What are your favourite Sunday products?
