Fluffy robes, relaxing music and plenty of zzz’s ………..this week we at L’Onglex Towers have decided to be good to ourselves and we’ve been busy researching products to pamper. Yes it’s a hard life testing body butters, creams, serums and all things make-up and the toil does tend to take its toll. After hours of long baths, nourishing body oils and the odd relaxing foot massages we feel confident that we have now got pampering down to a fine art, although being perfectionists we may repeat a few of the above quite soon.
It is worth noting however that no matter how good your pamper products their worthless without a decent bar of chocolate and a big mug of tea so put your feet up, grab a mag and prepare to slather your skin in goodness from head to toe. Here’s some quick picks for some perfect pampering products !
Ok, so it might not be the most sleep inducing of treatments but a good foot scrub can actually be very relaxing…especially if you can rope in an understanding partner to help with treatment !
Our pick of the bunch was the tickle inducing goodness of the Rituals Wai Wang mild exfoliating body cream. We’re not sure if it was the delicate calming scent of White lotus or the fact that it’s made from ultra fine Chinese bamboo that had us coming back for more but frankly we feel pampered just thinking about it. Our dry skin was gently buffed away leaving our tootsies feeling soft and perfectly supple.
A nice bath is the cornerstone for any home pampering session and nothing made us feel more pampered than the fizzle of a lush bath bomb. Lush has become one of our faves when it comes to bathtime pampering, mainly as it’s sweet smelling and great for skin. This week we’ve been trying the Supernova bath bomb with all natural ingredient which gave our skin a deep calming clean as well as a bit of a boost on the moisture front. Our only gripe was trying to keep our eyes open and if you’re feeling snoozy stay well away from the lavender !
No pampering session would be complete without a skin enhancing home facial and Sisley’s skin enriching goodies are our current pamper product of choice. We stuck our fingers in Sisley’s Radiant Glow Express mask and the results were delightfully on a par with what you would expect from a good facial at the salon. It doesn’t smell so bad either, and five minutes should be plenty to leave your skin radiant and glowing.
The body butter
Once the buffing and soaking has been taken care of, the next step towards pampered bliss is too soothe that sleepy skin with a slather or two of body butter. Locking in the moisture nicely is Sanctuarys Ultra Rich Body Butter.The super thick formula is enriched with shea and coco butter and simply disappears into anything approaching dry skin. Left all of us at L’Onglex super nourished, super soft and super supple. This one we love !
When it comes to relaxing we love our candles here at L’onglex HQ and no one does candles quite like Jo Malone. Yes, they are a bit costly and come as a bit of a treat but as soon as we put our sniffers near the the velvety aromas of Amber & Sweet Orange we forget the price and just wallow in the luxury. With 45 hours burning time if you’ve enough by way of hot water we promise you won’t want to get out.
