Beauty Edit: My Nighttime Pamper Routine (Skincare, Haircare & Nails)

I'm not really one for partying, I prefer a pamper party for one, accompanied by the Pitch Perfect soundtrack and numerous cups of tea. Let me give you a rundown of my current favourite pamper products.

Bumble & Bumble Sunday Shampoo Product Review
The first part of my shower routine is to wash my hair and I always think when you're pampering yourself it's nice to give your hair a good deep clean, so I use my Bumble & Bumble Sunday Shampoo. For conditioner the Bumble & Bumble Creme De Coco Conditioner is amazing at adding hydration to my dry ends, without weighing my hair down. While my conditioner gets to work, I wash my body with my Philosophy Sweet Fluffy Cupcake Shower Gel (smells amazing!) and wash my face with my cleanser of choice the First Aid Beauty Face Cleanser. Now that I'm clean I wash out my conditioner, squeeze out the excess water and rap my hair in my favourite Soap & Glory Hair Turban, which let me tell you is the height of fashion haha.

Post Shower:
Skincare Routine
After my shower I like to slather on a nice hydrating body cream and my favourite is the L'Occitane Almond Milk Concentrate, it's so luxurious, plus it smells divine! My next step is probably my favourite, applying a face mask. My current mask of choice is the First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Oatmeal Mask to help calm down any redness. After 10 minutes I washed it off and then followed with a spritz of my Lush Tea Tree Toner to help rid my skin of any spots. Then it's time for a serum. Today I chose Indeed Labs Hydraluron, I'm not too sure about this yet, but it does take a while with skincare so I will persevere. The second to last skincare step is of course moisturiser and my choice was the Antipodes Vanilla Pod Hydrating Day Cream. Lastly I applied a layer of my holy grail lip balm, the Nuxe Reve De Miel Lip Balm.

The last step in my pamper routine was to give my nails a fresh lick of paint.
Ciate "Ferris Wheel" Nail Polish
I decided to make my nails feel a bit more spring like by applying three coats of Ciate Ferris Wheel, followed by a nice blob of Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat. There we have it, I now have squeaky clean hair, moisturised skin and baby blue nails, what more could you wish for haha.

Are you, a drop it like it's hot party girl? Or do you prefer a quiet night in with your shampoo? It's ok if you like both haha!
