Christmas wouldn't be the same without a pamper and a long Lush bath in a mountain of bubbles. As I watch my favourite festive films and delve into the tin of Quality Street, I like to paint my nails, put on a face mask and thoroughly relax before the big day.
Of course I always have the same struggle every year - what Lush product do I use? I'm currently smitten with Snow Angel to make my water feel super silky soft, however the Magic of Christmas wand always beats it in the end. To make my body smell good enough to eat, I like to slather on the Laura Mercier Creme Brûlée Body Soufflé, specifically concentrating on all my dry patches. I know that I'll probably venture out for a few drinks and if I dare to go bare on my legs then I will then apply the Zoella Body Fondant or Dove DermaSpa Silky Body Oil* which acts as a dreamy highlighter for your pins.
As I've previously mentioned in other posts, I will be opting for dewy skin and a red lip around the festive season and prepping for these are very important. I like to scrub my lips so they'll feel super soft, before applying a layer of Nuxe Reve De Miel* as an overnight treatment. For my skin, I have been really enjoying using the Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel to add radiance and deliver a moisture boost after exfoliation. A new release in my routine is the Origins RitualiTea Feeling Rosy Mask* which I was sent a deluxe sample of to try out and have been saving one third of it for Christmas eve. This powder mask transforms into a creamy offering that softens and comforts the skin, ready for the last part of my skincare routine; applying a thick layer of my most hydrating moisturiser!
I'm going to freshen up my mani ready for Christmas by applying a couple of layers of Essie's Penny Talk -my favourite metallic hue-to my nails for a festive finish. To treat my hands even more, I will be applying Lush Lemony Flutter to my cuticles to prevent them from cracking and to keep my hands feeling genuinely nourished.
Are you pampering yourself this Christmas eve?
