'Twas The Night Before Christmas...


One thing I love to do on Christmas Eve is have a little pamper routine to get myself to get ready to chill out for the rest of the night and hopefully have a decent nights sleep!

Usually, the first thing I'll do is run the bath and pop in a Lush bath bomb or bubble bar. This year, I've decided that I'm going to use my favourite Lush product, The Comforter Bubble Bar because of it's gorgeous berry scent.
I'll then go ahead and add just a bit of my favourite festive shower gel into the bath, the treaclemoon Warm Cinnamon Nights Bath And Shower Gel. No guesses for what this shower gel smells like, but it's that kind of cinnamon that's not too sweet and not too spicy scented, I just love it and buy a bottle of this every year.

Once I'm in the bath I'll shampoo and rinse my hair, then apply a good amount of the Lee Stafford Hair Growth Treatment, massage it into my hair and leave it for 10 minutes. I'll then rinse it out and apply and rinse my conditioner.
Just after I've applied my hair mask, I'll get to work on using the Lush Mask Of Magnaminty Face Mask. I've already cleansed my face using the First Aid Beauty Skin Rescue Deep Cleanser With Red Clay before getting into the bath, so that my face will be completely clean and make-up free which will help the face mask to dig deep and dig out any impurities lurking underneath my skin. After my face mask has been on for about 10 minutes, I'll get out of the bath and wash it off, then continue on with my skincare routine.

While my skin is still slightly damp, I'll apply a generous amount of the Dove DermaSpa Goodness3 Body Oil* all over my body. I'll then put on some Dove DermaSpa Intensive Hand Cream* while I wait for the kettle to boil to make myself a hot chocolate.

I'll then dry my hair, pop on the fluffiest, most festive pair of pyjamas and slippers I have, stick on a Christmas movie, usually Elf because it's my favourite, drink my hot chocolate and make a start on my nails.

I recently did a Christmas Nails post were I discussed lots of festive nail polish options, so if you read that then you'll have seen the Models Own - Red Lustre and Rimmel - Ruby Crush nail polishes, which combined makes a gorgeous red base with a red and silver glitter top coat, which is just perfect for Christmas.

What do you do on Christmas Eve? I hope you all have a great Christmas, whatever you're doing!
