September – March 2016 Empties

SeptMarEmpties

I’ve had a lot going on the past year from planning my wedding which we had in October, my dad’s cancer diagnosis, moving and constant hospital trips. I would really love to do individual in depth reviews down the road but the empties have been piling up so here are some mini reviews for now. Continue reading “September – March 2016 Empties”

September – March 2016 Empties

My Sunday Rituals

Sundays are my favourite day of the week filled with many of my favourite things like sleeping in, brunch, grocery shopping and just being at home with my man and my kitty love. But the best part of my day is before heading to bed when I take a hot bath in epsom or himalayan salts and treat myself to some May Lindstrom skincare.

Here’s my Sunday after bath routine:

1. I cleanse my skin with The Clean Dirt, a clay cleanser. This diminishes any trace of dry flaky skin and prepares my skin for the next step which is…

2. The Honey Mud, a honey based cleanser mixed with The Problem Solver, a powder mask made of antioxidant rich cacao, healing bamboo charcoal, soil nutrients, salts and warming spices. I leave this on my face for an hour or so. The longer the better in my opinion. This mask is perfect for healing blemishes and tightening pores and the honey cleanser is nourishing and gentle. The first time I did this mask I was amazed at how clear and even toned my skin looked. For oilier skin types you can probably get away with just the Problem Solver but since I have combination/dry skin type I get the best effect without drying out my skin by mixing it with the cleanser. You can also wear the Problem Solver overnight on spots to make them go away faster!

3. Finally after I’ve rinsed every last trace of the mask off, which can take awhile, I melt a generous portion of the Blue Cocoon balm in my hands and apply it all over my face. This is the stand out item in my eyes. I hesitated on purchasing this at first because of the price ($200 for 50ml) but after ordering a sample of it off Clementine Fields and seeing how much it calmed my dry and sensitive skin I decided it was well worth it.

Then I like to light a beeswax candle and watch something in bed! Ah how I love Sundays!

How do you relax on your days off and what do you like to do to pamper yourself? Let me know in the comments.
