At this point, I feel like I’m trying to find any excuse to have a pamper night. Feeling down? Pamper night. Long week? Pamper night. Just bored on a Wednesday night? Why not! It’s a great way to make yourself feel a little bit better, especially when we’re all stuck inside.
If you’re like me, and you love a good face mask or body butter, but hate paying £££ for it, I’ve put together a list of some of my absolute fave purse-friendly products to help you feel your best!
Revolution Skincare Face Masks
When lockdown was first announced, the only thing I panic bought was face masks. What better time to sit in your PJs at 2pm, doing a clay mask? At least, that was my thought process when I placed an order on the Revolution Beauty website. I bought two of their clay masks (£8) and their Pink Glitter Peel-Off Mask (£6), as well as their dual-ended masking brush (£6).
I’ve tried and loved all 3, but my personal fave has definitely been the Pink Clay Detoxifying Mask. I genuinely feel like I saw a difference in my skin after one use, and it was really easy to apply and remove. The Pink Glitter Peel-Off Mask is really fun too. I don’t necessarily think it did anything for my skin, but it is really satisfying to peel off!
Dove Purely Pampering Body Wash
I recently tried out one of the Dove body washes and was immediately converted. Not only are they surprisingly cheap (I just bought a large bottle for £3 in Asda!), they’re also super moisturising and feel really luxurious on the skin. Plus, they lather up really well, so a little goes a long way. The Purely Pampering Shea Butter and Warm Vanilla scent is my absolute favourite (no exaggeration, I have multiple back up bottles). It has a warm, comforting scent, which stays on the skin for hours after you get out of the shower.
I’ve also just discovered that Dove also make body scrubs, which I will 100% be trying out as soon as I can.
Soap and Glory Body Lotion
Whether you prefer a body butter, or a body lotion, Soap and Glory do some of my favourites (both £10)! I prefer the lotions in the pump bottles, just because I find them easier/less messy to use, but it’s 100% your preference.
They come in a range of different scents, from their Original Pink scent, to fun fruity scents. My absolute favourite, though, is the Smoothie Star Body Milk, which has an almond and brown sugar scent. My bottle sits pride of place on my dressing table, ready to use!
Soap and Glory body scrubs are also amazing – my fave is The Breakfast Scrub (£8)!
Literally everything from The Body Shop
If you’re looking for something a little more indulgent and have a few more £s to spend, The Body Shop is the perfect place to go.
My personal faves are their body butters (£6 – £16), shower gels (£2 – £16) and hand creams (£5). I usually go for more warm, comforting scents like shea butter or coconut, but they also brought out a Vanilla Pumpkin range around Halloween last year that I loved! I still have half of a tub of body butter left!
