I wanted to compile a list of my favourite cosy activities, favourite treats for the weekend and my go-to comforting products and what a better day for this to go live than Sunday, the day for lazy mornings, long brunches and the perfect excuse to take some time out for yourself.
Most of my comforting products come in the form of body lotions, I love slathering them all over, inhaling their delicious, often moorish scent. The Laura Mercier Creme Brûlée Body Cream is the OG and it's sweet, yet not too sickly scent lingers on the body for hours, enough to complete your full pamper routine of face masks and candles. The Soap and Glory Smoothie Star Body Cream is similar because it's got a sweet scent too (almond, oat and brown sugar) and I've been saving this for the Autumn months the most because I just knew it would be a great comforting pick.
Next up is one that smells like honey and babies, which I'm here for if I'm honest; it's name says it all really too. The Nuxe Rêve de Miel Comforting Lotion* is a nourishing, yet lightweight cream that sinks into the skin super quickly and has actually improved the way my skin has been feeling over just the short period I've been using it.
Last of the body creams is Lush Sleepy, a favourite amongst many and renowned for it's sleep inducing properties. This lavender scented treat is one I have to apply just before bed and let soak into the skin as I slowly feel my eyes closing. It reminds me of spending endless hours reading
As for activities,I love nothing more than fresh bedding, newly shaved legs, a set of PJ's, a book I've wanted to read for ages and getting the candles lit. If you had to describe my perfect evening that would be it. A long bath with the lights down low, a face mask on (I'm currently trying out the Charlotte Tilbury Goddess Skin Clay Mask*) and a bit of time to myself to exfoliate myself from head to toe is always a treat too. After my long, hot bath, I like to bundle myself under lots of duvet to watch a few episodes of whatever I'm currently watching - I'm thinking either a gripping pick like The 100 or a seasonal favourite, Gilmore Girls.
What are your favourite cosy + comforting favourites?
