I've been meaning to put together this post for a while now, I have pretty much nailed my Sunday routine which includes a selection of goodies that I call my "relaxation kit" - after I've prepared everything for Monday morning and my room is organised, I reach for my make-up remover and facial wipes and take off all my make-up. I'll be honest - I used to be awful with taking my make-up off but now I can't imagine leaving it on! It is so important to let your skin breathe and I love using the Garnier Fresh Essentials Refreshing Toner to go that extra step of cleaning my pores. I did a review on the full range last year here and I have been hooked on this range ever since, it is great value and the packaging is so cute! I think Garnier have actually discontinued that particular toner but you can find their other option here. After I use the Garnier toner I put on a face mask, I usually use a heated pack but to save money lately I've been using this little life saver from Boots - the Boots Essentials Cucumber 3 Minute Clay Mask is great value for money, I actually got this on offer, it was three items from the Boots skin care range for only £3!
I love the whole concept behind face masks, just leaving a product on while you can still run around the house or simply flicking through a magazine - I usually leave this on during a film then remove it before I go to bed. I love the smell of cucumber because it just feels really fresh! If you use face masks as much as me then this is perfect! It leaves my skin feeling healthy and smooth. While I have my face mask on I will usually write my blog post schedule for the week, my to do list which either involves what I need to buy for the week or if I need to return any clothes, pop to the bank etc. After this, I pop on a Disney DVD, light a few candles (Ikea candles is perfect for this) and I usually reach for a easy to use nail polish. When I say easy to use, I mean a nail polish that dries quickly when I am wrapped in my duvet. The Bourjois 1 Seconde Nail Polish range are ideal - I am loving this glittery colour at the moment, I've got light, nude pink nails but I like adding a few coats of Glitterizer* to jazz it up a bit! So there we have it, the ways I relax on a Sunday night. What are your essential relaxation tools? Have a lovely evening girls ♥
