The Art of Pampering

After walking two very mischievous dogs, and bathing one because she decided mud was this seasons latest accessory there is nothing I wanted to do today except have a hot shower and get into my pyjamas onesie.

This windy wet weather is doing me no favours but it is giving me a great excuse to spend some time playing with products. Nothing makes me feel cleaner and more fresh than a good body scrub so today I turned to Soap and Glory's Sugar Crush( £8 - Boots) which smells divine, like margarita in a tub. This gets rid of all of the dry skin from my legs and leaves me feeling as good as new.

Once I get out of the shower it's time to deal with my complexion, which hasn't been to bad but I've been blighted with a group of under the skin bumps on my chin, so a bit of Origins Super Spot Remover ( £13 - Origins) followed with Aesop's Chamomile Concentrate Anti Blemish Mask (£33 Beauty Expert) This duo really helps to calm blemishes down, and get rid if any redness and swelling.

Whilst they work their magic I cover myself in Soap and Glory's latest addition to their Body Butter family Smoothie Star ( £10.50 - Boots)This rich body cream smells like marzipan and smoothes and hydrates and dry patches. If you love foodie scents, you need this body butter!

And before bed a quick slick of Nuxe Reve De Miel Lip Balm (£9.50 - Feel Unique ) and I'm good to go and feeling a damn sight more human!
