Home Spa Treatment

Nothing is quite as fun and relaxing as a day of pampering, and since we may not get the chance to treat ourselves often I’ve put together some of my favorite products for a home spa treatment.
Sheet Masks

Ideally, it’s best to start with the gooey stuff like thick face or hair masks. You can try my go-to dewy skin mask which is oh-so smelly but incredibly rejuvenating. I’ve also previously talked about my love for the Sephora Sheet Face Masks which are really gentle but have super hydrating powers.

A new favorite is the Starskin Gold Mask which was a pleasant surprise for me. I always worry about my skin breaking out from new products and so I’m very careful about what I try on my face, and this mask is very soothing and moisturizing. Home Spa

Next up is – in my opinion – the best part, a soak in the tub with some Lush Bombs. The Rose Bombshell smells like the Rose Argan conditioner, a candy and rose water explosion that soothes the senses and relaxes the mind. The flowering tea bath dunk is literally like lying on a field of glittering lavenders, and like all lush products leaves the skin soft and supple.

I recently discovered a natural-based brand in Dubai that makes beautifully scented olive soap bars. Olive soap is so common in most arabic households and I use it around the house for so many things, but I never thought to shower with it. The Shiffa soaps come in delicious scents and have a strong capacity for cleansing and moisturizing.

Now that you’re out of the bath and glowing, it’s time for some more moisturizing. Sephora extended their line of sheet masks, and now have lip and hand masks as well. I try to put hand cream as often as possible throughout the day, but the dry weather and the constant washing and application of hand sanitizer tends to takes it’s toll on my skin. The hand gloves smell so good and are easy to apply, leaving you with an extended surge of hydration.

You can’t have a home spa treatment without some oil and this Elemis Cellutox one is citrusy and very lightweight thus not leaving me with a sticky feeling after use. I usually like to apply pure Argan Oil, but I like how the Elemis oil is absorbed so quickly into the skin.

The last step is one of the most important, your eyes. I like to use the lightest possible eye creams during the day so my concealer won’t crease. However sometimes the skin around my eyes gets alarmingly dry and flaky, so I use a heavier cream like this SkinCeuticals Eye Balm during the night.

What products do you use when doing a home spa treatment, and are there any other steps you like to include? I’d love to hear about it from you.

I don’t always switch up my beauty routine for fear of breaking out, but I’ve tried a few new products this month and was really excited to share them with you all.

1. Etude House Cherry Lip Gel Patch: My lips get dry and flaky pretty often so I’m always using a lip scrub to get rid of the dead skin. I usually apply vaseline right after scrubbing and as often as possible, but the dryness always creeps back. This Gel Lip Patch was amazing and left my lips super smooth and supple for days. It was hard to get it to stick on my lips, so I recommend just laying your head back and relaxing for 20 minutes while it does it’s job.c/o: Available at www.thebbcreamgirl.com

2. TonyMoly Apply Hand Cream: I don’t know about you, but I don’t apply hand cream nearly as often as I should. This cream is really dewy and feels more like a butter. My skin absorbed it right away and smelled like an actual red apple! c/o: Available at www.thebbcreamgirl.com

3. Max Factor Creme Puff Blush in Lovely Pink: Last week I attended the Re-launch of the Max Factor Academy and they gave us one of these blushes to try. You already know how much I love pink blushers, and this one is soft rosy shade with a pretty luminosity. I’ve been using it non-stop the past few days and found it pretty long lasting.

4. Tarte Cosmetics Eyelash Curler: Truth time: I bought this curler because of how pretty it is. Luckily though, it’s amazing! I’ve only started using eyelash curlers a little over a year ago and I sometimes find it tricky to get the corner lashes without pinching my almond-shaped eyes. This curler is wide and broad, so it catches every single lash easily and curls them beautifully.

Have you tried any of these products? I’d love to hear what you think!
