Beauty // an October pamper night

As a new series on LW I've decided to share the products to enter my winter pamper evenings. The weeks seem to be flying by and I've been glad of a few pamper evenings this week as all my spare time seems to have been filled by helping everyone else and shoving my to do lists to the side - with the odd trip to minor injuries for myself.

Bed Head TIGI Colour Goddess Shampoo & Conditioner*
I decided to carry on using the Colour Goddess shampoo & conditioner from TIGI which I received from Hairtrade. As you can guess, the range has been designed for the serial hair abusers amongst us. I may not dye my hair yet but I sure do abuse it with a lot of heat to manage my unruly waves.

Lush Sparkler Bath Bomb
No pamper night is complete without a Lush bath product. I ended up picking Sparkler bath bomb, one of Lush's newest additions to the winter collections. I felt let down by the lacking display and artificial scent that doesn't come close to the wonderful Rose Jam fragrance I love very much. It's not a product to rule out though, with the approaching Bonfire Night in the UK this is one product to consider if you too like to retire to the bath tub.

Lush So White Shower Gel 250g
Usually I'm all about the warmer, spicy shower gel Lush bring out for Christmas but this year So White shower gel seems to be taking over from this years Hot Toddy. For those who aren't so into Lush, So White was originally a little white bath bomb, before the apple scented bath bomb received a makeover with a surprise centre....which has now lead to a Shower Gel being whipped up for this years offerings. So White is a much lighter, delicate fragrance with notes of apple, rose and neroli compared to the sugar rush of Snow Fairy and boozy punches we're used to. I'm over the moon to have a delicious apple scented shower gel again, I can remember as a child loving The Body Shop's apple shower gel - who also seem to have whipped up an apple scented shower gel for Christmas 2014 too.

Lush Celebrate Body Lotion
I received this little black pot of Celebrate Body Lotion in my recent Lush order, a product I seemed to overlook last Christmas. I'm not the best at remembering to moisturise my entire body, I like to use body conditioners in the shower that save me the time. Nobody wants to be standing around in winter waiting for the lotions to sink in. Celebrate however sinks in really fast, leaving skin hydrated and smelling oh so good. If you love the zingy fragrance of Golden Wonder you'll most definitely want this lightly whipped body lotion to prepare you for the festive season.

Lush Angels on Bare Skin Cleanser
Angels on Bare Skin has been a staple in my skincare routine for years - I'm talking way back to when I was in secondary school. It's seen me through my teenage years and now with me into the twenties whether my skins dry or breaking out. I picked this large pot up back in July, you only need a pea-sized amount to mix with water to create a gentle, exfoliating cleanser. As I'm almost finished, I'll be picking up another as well as the festive addition Buche de Noel.

Lush Ultrabland Cleanser
Another product I picked up in the summer, used a religiously before opting for
a cleanser that wasn't so hydrating. Now the weather is cooling down my skins getting drier and I'm needing all the hydration I can get. Ultrabland is such a basic cleanser yet very effective balm cleanser that breaks down and removes all the dirt and makeup.

Kiehls Midnight Recovery Concentrate*
The Midnight Recovery Concentrate is fairly new to my routine and one I use when my skin really needs a bit of TLC. With 99.8% naturally derived ingredients a few drops of this facial oil replenishes skin over night and has skin looking younger by morning. My skin always looks so healthy and glowing come morning. The packaging is adorable, with a recycled glass bottle, dropper and plastic squeeze top to protect and not waste the's certainly not cheap.

Burt's Bees Honey Lip Balm*
Burt's Bees lip balms are some of my absolute favourites, the honey being an absolute classic and oh so sweet! This guys packed with beeswax, shea butter, almond oil, cocoa butter and lanolin to keep lips soft and hydrated.

Burt's Bees Hand Salve*
Included as part of the Honey Pot Collection gift set for this Christmas, the Burt's Bees Hand Salve is a hard balm, packed with botanical oils, herbs and beeswax to keep hardworking hands moisturised as a highly intensive hand treatment. This teen tiny pot will go far this winter.

Scholl Velvet Smooth Night Mask*
The velvet smooth night mask from Scholl is a product to sit firmly beside my bed and is part of the Velvet Smooth range including the Express Pedi Electronic Foot File. Whether I use the entire range or this the night mask does an amazing job at keeping my feet baby soft and is one of my most favourite foot products.

La Roche Posay Cicaplast Baume B5
If your accident prone like myself you'll always have bruises or a cut or two. A not so glamorous product to finish this little 'pamper night' though one I rely on and keep to hand whether I'm at home or out and have a miniature in my handbag. The extremely thick cream helps heal up cuts much quicker and soon allows me to use much more exciting beauty products. Which beauty products have you included in your pamper evenings? Lucy xx
