This has just been one of those weeks. And I'm exhausted. So I thought a Friday night pamper was well in order to give this weekend a fresh start.
My Friday usually consists of work, cleaning the apartment after work, and then some kind of movie date with the boy. But since he's out of town until later tonight, I thought it would be the perfect time for a face mask, a long bath & full body moisturization, and some nail painting. All done at the same time as watching Mad Men, of course, which may or may not send me into frustration mode (anyone else hate Don right now!?) once again. Here's a peek at the products I will use tonight:
I'm starting with the Vichy Normaderm Tri-Activ Mask. I love this mask when my skin is feeling in rough shape because not only does it combat acne, it also has little beads that give you great exfoliation. I wouldn't suggest using it more than once every couple of weeks because it's quite strong and a bit drying. To keep my lips soft and dead-skin free, I'll use my LUSH Mint Julips. After this, I'll be applying one of my favorite face products as of late, my trusty Hydraluron Serum. I use this to plump up my face when it is in need of moisture. Then I'll be using a little sample of the NUDE Treatment Oil I received with a Zuneta order. I don't use this often because I have oily skin, but when I feel the need for moisture, this is the best product I've ever used. After a hot bath accented by the scent of my Bath & Body Works Lemon Mint Leaf candle, I'll moisturize my arms with the Bath & Body Works Lavender Vanilla moisturizer (purely because I love the scent), and use my Nuxe Body Oil on my legs since I am prone to ingrown hairs. And finally, I'll be applying the new Clinique Nail Enamel in Sweet Tooth* to my tips after having pushed back my cuticles.
And those are my plans for my much needed pamper Friday! What day of the week do you pamper? What are your favorite products for some serious pampering?
