With Style and a Little Grace: Spa Night Essentials

Spa Night Essentials

Spa night's are something that I give myself at least once a week. I have always been a bath girl - I take a bath every single night. It's my me time. I light a candle, read my book, or watch a little you-tube on my Ipad. Maybe have a glass of wine,  I need that time in my life.

A spa night adds a little bit more luxury to your routine and reminds me to do those weekly things ( like exfoliating my skin and doing a facemask). I thought I would round up some of my favorites for a little spa night in.


--A Great Bubble Bath--

Right now I am loving this Calgon Milk Bath it smells really wonderful and leaves my skin feeling silky smooth. I take baths so often that I really want to splurge on the Laura Mercier Creme Brulee Honey Bath. Maybe the Easter Bunny will bring it to me......




--A FACEMASK--

I am currently alternating between the Freeman Avocado & Oatmeal mask and this mint mask which is the CVS version of the Queen Helene mask. They are both great for minimizing pores and leaving your skin feeling really refreshed. I think everyone should do a facemask at least once a week. At $4 these have been my favorites for over 15 years.


-- HAIR MASK--

Aussie 3 Minute Miracle - this mask is great if you are in a rush and leaves your hair super shiny. For my big spa nights I am currently using Garnier Fructis Damage Eraser and it might be my favorite hair mask to date. The texture is really thick, like butter and it leave my hair smelling and feeling amazing.


-- EXFOLIANT, SHAVING CREAM, RAZOR, SKIN OIL--

I like to take this time and really exfoliate my skin, especially getting ready for bikini season. I usually use a buffing brush or scrubber with my favorite exfoliate of the moment. I am currently trying to use up my Victoria's Secret exfoliate I purchased last summer, similar here. Then I shave using my new favorite shaving gel Skintimate Raspberry Rain with my tried and true Venus. When I get out of the shower I like to use either a really thick body butter or a great oil on my skin. My lavender oil I have had over 4 years and you need so little I am just now running out. I just purchased this from the Body Shop for Summer.

  I usually stay in my robe, make some tea and let it soak in for about an hour.



-- NAIL ACCESSORIES--
I try to maintain my nails weekly, even if they are not painted. The best thing to do is make sure to take care of your cuticles. This Sally Hansen remover came in a kit with cuticle sticks and is fantastic and so easy to use. I usually moisturize my hands afterwards and put them in gloves or socks for a little bit. Hands do not need to be neglected ladies, they can seriously show age.


-- BRIGHT POLISH --

If I have time I try to paint my nails a fun color! These are some of my current Spring favorites!

Do y'all have a spa routine? I know it might seem like a lot to do weekly but I strongly believe in taking care of your skin. You only get one body right?  Let me know if y'all would like to see more beauty posts like this?

Thank you so much for reading!
