22 October, 2014 Bedside Table Beauty
Right before I go to sleep, I like to indulge in a bit of bedside table beauty. Having my favourite products so nearby is super convenient and means it’s one less job to do after a long day, and was especially fab last weekend as I was in bed the whole time after my wisdom teeth op, and really couldn’t be bothered to keep up with my rather lengthy skincare routine. Below I’ve listed some gorgeous products that help me get ready for bed and ensure a restful night’s sleep, and I’d love to hear about your favourite bedtime rituals too!
An amazing lip product that is constantly being raved about in the blogging community is NUXE’s Reve de Miel lip mask. Both a rich, nourishing balm and a brilliant primer for lip produdcts, this multi-use product can be applied before bed, and you’ll still feel it on your lips in the morning. It’s waxy consistency means it won’t turn gloopy or patchy, and is especially wonderful in the colder months. Reve de Miel balms are currently on sale via Look Fantastic and you can pick up a tub here for £6.33, as opposed to the original price of £9.
If I’m feeling under the weather, something that always cheers me up is The Body Shop’s Deep Sleep Dreamy Pillow and Body Mist. This is a light spray that can be applied to your bedding, your pyjamas and onto your wrists to help calm and relax your mind before bed. The spray smells of lavender and there are hints of juniper which give it a slightly gin and tonic scent, but I love it. Buy here for £10.
Next up is a lovely and rich hand cream and mask from Soap & Glory, called Endless Glove. I won’t rave for too long as I posted a full review which you can read here, but an added bonus is that you can use this on your feet as well if you fancy an at-home pedicure. Buy here for £6.50.
If I feel like applying a face mask from the comfort of my bed, nine times out of ten I’ll be slapping on this incredible Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask from Origins. Enriched with peach extract and Japanese Seaweed, this mask rehydrates my skin without leaving it greasy or excessively oily. You can read a full review of the mask here, and you can buy it here for £23.
