The stress of completing the last assignments for my post-graduate course wreaked havoc on my skin, which was such a shame as for the last few months I've been so happy with the condition of it. Sadly it isn't just skincare that dictates how my mug fares, and the painful spots stung even more knowing that they would hang around for my dear Candice's wedding! I made sure to take extra special care of my face and body in the week leading up to her big day, and this was a mid week treat that Mister Bovary and I indulged in - our 'at home on a budget' facial!We literally wanted the whole 'spa experience' that comes along with pampering, and so we used L'Occitane Lavande Cologne* to create a relaxing scent and took turns being the beauty therapist. I started off with Weleda Almond Soothing Cleansing Lotion* which is for sensitive skin. I then popped on a decent layer of the Apivita Express Beauty with Pink Clay*, which is supposed to draw out any impurities while cleansing the skin. I love that these come in single sachets, with enough inside for Mister Bovary and I to share with ease. After I washed off the pink clay, I threw on a Michika Complexion Rejuvenating Synergist Mask*, which is said to target fatigued skin - sign me up!
To finish up the lush pamper sesh, out came the moisturisers! We each dabbed some Kosmea Rosehip Oil* on our dry patches (a spot under my lip and a spot under his eye are the most annoying patches right now) and then finished off the whole lot with Biotherm Homme Aquapower* moisturiser from a sample from the male Glossybox.
So what do you think of my 'at-home facial' round up?
What products do you pamper your skin with?
