Let's be real, holidays can be A MESS. If you're a gift procrastinator, if you're working in retail, if you're managing kids, managing family get togethers, it can be a real struggle. So sometimes when you feel like life is going a million miles a minute, it's worth it to take a minute to sit down and chill out. Today for Blogmas I'm sharing a few products I use to help me relax and calm down a bit.
1. Sephora Collection Face Mask
I saw a lot of hype circulate around using face masks and face scrubs and I was like wha? Pardon? So on a whim I decided to try one of the Sephora face masks, and I couldn't have been more in love. These masks are targeted to combat different things from aging to fatigue, all mixed with great fruity scents. Not only are there face masks, but also eye and hand masks.
2. Bath and Bodyworks Candle
Bath and Bodyworks basically took my paycheques this year, but I'm not even mad about it. Sometimes when you wanna lay low, you just need a comforting candle going to make for the best ambiance. Everyone has their own scent preference, but my favourites for relaxing are any of the light scents like Merry Cookie and Vanilla Snowflake that both do not have an overpowering smell. Just some nice vanilla vibes.
3. Lush Bath Bomb/Bubble Bar
The most stereotypical thing to put on this list, but let's be real, these fresh ingredient made bath buds are THE REAL DEAL. Just put one of them in your tub and you're set. Plus who doesn't love when the water changes colour?
4. FAB's moisturizer
A moisturizer doesn't necessarily calm you down, but nothing sucks more in the winter than having gross dry skin. I came across FAB (First Aid Beauty) after I got a sample from Sephora and I was hooked. Not only does this moisturizer completely get rid of any rough patches, but it isn't just limited to your face, but also your whole body. Bless.
5. Philosophy's Purity 3 in 1 Cleanser
This was also another sample I received from Sephora. I always loved Philosophy's products, but had never tried their cleansers or moisturizers. After application, this cleanser makes you feel like there's absolutely nothing on your face. It feels fresh and new and as if any sort of stale feeling you may have had is completely gone. 10/10 would recommend.
