The Sunday Post: Pre NY Pampering

Welcome to the last Sunday Post of 2012! Tonight I’ll be grouping a few of my new and old favourites together for a pre-new year pamper special. What’s so special about it? Well for one, I’ve lost count of the amount of biscuits, mince pies, litres of custard/cream and takeaways I’ve packed in to my tiny belly over the past week, this is not a recipe for fantastic skin, or any other body part for that fact. So I need a little detox and pick me up…

To kick things off I’ll do my usual cleansing routine, and then get right in there with the detox and slap on a load of the Origins Clear Improvement mask, my congested, takeaway filled pores can bugger right off. Leave that for 10 minutes and your golden. Next the Ren Glycolactic Radiance Renewal mask comes in to combat my congested ol’ face that little bit more and removes dead skin cells to leave a brighter and more radiant complexion.

Face masks aside, the usual bed time routine of the Lierac Diopti Calm eye mask and Embryolyse moisturiser are used. But tonight the moisturiser is only going on the pesky dry patches as something new and exciting is being applied to the rest of my face – the Ren Resurfacing AHA Concentrate. This stuff smells awful, but don’t let it put you off, my skin looks amazing after applying and for the next day after. You can either use it for seven days straight, or every other day – I choose every other day. It picks up where the mask left off on the whole radiance and exfoliating scale, and I genuinely spent a good 5 minutes staring at my skin in a magnified mirror the day after applying.

Once complete, all that’s left is to sit down with a lemon tea, paint your nails, catch up on Eastenders, and ponder outfits for NYE… And yes, I am still undecided on that one…

    I got the REN mask free when I subscribed to a magazine and wasn't sold on it until I used it the other day and literally couldn't believe how good my skin looked the next day. I'm intrigued by the Resurfacing AHA Concentrate now and might have to check that out next time I'm in Space NK! x

    I am a raddled mess of too much alcohol and fatty foods, why was there no face mask in my stocking?

    Love Origins Charcoal Mask, it's effective but also kinda reminds me of when I was really young and used to buy those cheap peel off masks from Boots. Hours of fun! 🙂
