The Weekend Post #23: Bedtime Beauty

Every night when I slip into bed at least another five minutes pass before I’m actually able to roll over and snooze. I may snuggle under my sheets with my skincare routine completed, but I still like to throw on my bedtime beauty bits that occupy my bedside table prior to me hitting up snoozeland. The products included mainly follow the mantra of ‘moisturise, moisturise, moisturise’ – hands, face and feet all get the nourishing treatment and yes it is completely necessary for there to be four multi-tasking balms housed next to me…

There isn’t much rhyme or reason as to what gets slathered on first, but let’s get started with those god damn brilliant multi-tasking balms – which are my number one bedside essential. Like I said I switch up between 3: The Body Shop Honeymania Hand Cream, Lakme Absolute Skin Gloss Reflection Serum and L’Occitane Shea Butter Foot Cream. The Body Shop Honeymania Hand Cream is a new addition so the jury’s still out, but the Lakme Absolute is my favourite out the bunch (I’m nearing the end of my second bottle, my wallet weeps), however you get the most bang for your buck with the L’Occitane Shea Butter Foot Cream, plus it stays around forever, I think I’ve had this tube kicking around for four months! Shhhhh. I apply them all to my hands, face, feet whatever’s looking a little dry before bed and wake up super smooth. Being a bit of a mask freak of course the Lakme Absolute Skin Gloss Overnight Mask also cosies up in my product pouch. A little amount massaged into my face not only adds that extra drop of hydration to my routine, the scent has me dozing off in no time.

Bedtime beauty routine completed it’s time for me to finally enter dreamland which I’ve been told leaves me laughing loudly in my sleep, hogging the bed covers and headbutting whoever is sleeping next to me. I think it may be time for me to set up shop on the sofa ?
