Pamper night essentials
Now you all know how much I love Neom, and no pamper night would be complete without a scented candle burning in the background. I opted for Neom Contentment candle, which is made up of buchu, nutmeg and ginger. Despite what it said on the website, I couldn't detect any notes of blackberry, instead it's more of a leafy pine scent. It's very reviving though, so just what I needed after such a long week.
Candle lit, it was time to remove my make up and pop on a face mask. Glam glow comes out as a grainly clay based mask, with small chunks of green tea leaves. I had a 5ml sample satchet, and I found that was just the right amount for my face. After a minute or so, it really starts to tingle, and within 5 minutes, it dries to a hard clay mask. The results are worth though, because as soon as I washed it off, my skin felt detoxed, and it looked brighter and more radiant.
Organic surge brown sugar body polish
Next up, was some good old exfoliation with Organic Surge brown sugar body polish. Like the Neom real luxury body scrub, this is suspended in oil, so leaves behind a light film on the skin. I found the sugar grains to be coarse and scrubby, but not harsh enough to be scratchy. The addition of bergamot and orange essential oils gave it the most amazing sweet citrus scent, plus it helps to stimulate circulation and eliminate toxins, which always a bonus.
Finally, I used Balance Me super toning body oil to keep my skin extra soft and supple. The good thing about a body oil is that it'll take a little longer to sink in, so you can really take your time and give your skin a good massage. I loved the spa like scent of this one and for a body oil, it felt surprisingly light and non greasy on the skin. On a more practical note, it comes with a pop up cap so it was a lot easier to control when pouring out the oil.
Beauty routine done, it was time to change into pyjamas, snuggle up in bed and catch up on my favourite blog and Youtube videos, all whilst enjoying a mug of yummy mint hot chocolate!
