The theme to 2017 so far has been ‘look after yourself’. With mental health being talked about a lot more, and the importance of making sure you look after yourself. Whether that’s taking the off half day at work to just relax and breathe, decluttering your things, enjoying a nice meal with friends, enjoying some solo adventures or a classic pampering. I’ve been making sure to invest a lot more time in myself, and to ensure I make time to pamper myself every week.
Molton Brown are fab for pampering products and their new Limited Edition Patisserie Parlour Gourmand Collection is inspired by an enticing trio of olfactory desserts. Who doesn’t love dessert right? I find hand cream can be such a small luxurious touch that can brighten your day in a matter of seconds, and leave you feeling a little more together, whilst the process of applying hand cream is quite therapeutic in itself. The 40ml handbag friendly squeezy tubes retail for £10 each, or you can get this adorable boxed springtime trio for £25, making the hand creams £8 (ish) each. You could keep them for yourself, or give the gift of lovely pampered hands to someone you love. The boxed set of 3 includes the scents; Delicious Rhubarb & Rose, Comice Pear & Wild Honey and Dewy Lily of the Valley & Star Anise. And they’re all really delicious and light scents, with the Rubarb and Rose being a firm fave,
Crabtree and Evelyn are another brand that are perfect for a little me-time pampering and their new La Source Collection is the ultimate Zen relaxing collection for a good weekly pamper. The La Source collection draws inspiration from the restorative powers of the sea around us, and is carefully designed to restore, condition and rejuvenate the skin from head to toe. Formulated with a blend of ingredients such as underwater algae, mineral salts and seaweeds the products in this collection allow you to escape everyday life and immerse yourself in spa-like rituals. The Exfoliating Body Scrub (£20) with fine pumice is a great way to cleanse your skin and feel like a fresh new person, and finishing off with a slathering of the Hydrating Body Lotion (£19) and Ultra-Moisturising Hand Therapy (£23), you’re good to go for a fresh new day!
