I haven’t had a proper Sunday pamper ever since I moved to London, mainly because I didn’t have the time and because my room is a bit crammed – I’d like to have my space y’a know.
First: nails. They really needed a tidy up, so I rubbed in Sally Hansen Instant Cuticle Remover on my cuticles and pushed them back with a cuticle stick (or whatever they are called). Followed by some nourishing delightfulness, Burt’s Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream. It is a great follow-up for the cuticle remover as it can be a bit drying. To prep my nails for the layers of nail polish, I start with the Essie Protein Base Coat (not included in picture). I’m not really sure if this does something for my nails – first time using a base coat after many years without, but as I don’t fancy the look of yellow-ish nails I diligently apply two coats of that before any polish touches my nails. For my hands I’m using Andreia Nail Polish in 43, and for my toes I’m using Essie Topless and Barefeet. I have neglected my feet far too long, and as it’s time to start looking for those summer sandals, I better prep them for a public appearance. And of course all sealed with Seche Vite Top Coat.
Moving on to hair, Philip Kingsley Elasticizer hair mask, which is a hassle to apply. As I’m desperate for healthy hair, I went on with it and followed the instructions carefully. Wet hair, apply in sections, work it in with fingertips, cover with plastic cap for 10 – 20 minutes. Done.
For me a pamper is never complete without a good mask, and today is the debut of Glamglow Mud Mask, which I bought a few weeks ago. My skin has been acting up a bit lately and hope that this mask will show its magic. After purifying and clarifying my skin (hopefully), I follow up with my all-time favorite Clarins HydraQuench Cream-Mask for that extra moisture.
How does your Sunday pamper look like?
