Favorite "Treat Yo-Self" Products

Bubble Bars and Bath Bombs. These are by far my favorite things to use when I need to relax and clear my head in the bathtub for a while. As someone with sensitive skin that's prone to dryness with other bath products, these don't leave my skin dry or feeling like I need to rinse off afterwards. Every one I've tried (which has been many) has smelled great and I'm just a sucker for a pink bath. My favorite bubble bar is the French Kiss and favorite bath bomb is the Sex Bomb (but I'm dying to try the Experimenter. My LUSH is always sold out!)

Amika Nourishing Hair Mask. I haven't tried a ton of hair mask because my roots tend to lean more on the oily side, but every once in a while when I'm ends are looking a little dry and lifeless, I grab this mask and leave it on while I'm in the tub. After I rinse it out, it doesn't leave my hair feeling heavy with leftover product or make my roots really greasy. Smells great and works well for my hair type. 

Lip Scrub. I'm a big lipstick wearer and though I attempt to keep my lips moisturized, I still struggle with chronically dry and flaky lips. I've tried things like the Bite Beauty Agave Lip Mask and other types of lip exfoliants, but this is my favorite. It's VERY gritty and really scrubs the dead skin away. I usually use it at night and follow up with a healthy dose of vaseline (which is what works best for me for chapped lips) and head to bed.  So this product gets used about once a week in my house. 

Peter Thomas Roth Masks. Sometimes your skin is just feeling a little lackluster and dry. For me, I notice it most when I'm applying foundation and it's not blending in as well with my skin, especially on and around my nose. But the Cucumber Gel Mask and Pumpkin Enzyme Mask (not pictured) does just the trick. The cucumber mask is extremely soothing and moisturizing and the pumpkin mask smooths off dead skin and smells like a pumpkin latte. 

The Olive Branch Shower Gel. Are we catching on that I'm a pretty big LUSH fangirl? This is actually my normal, everyday body wash but it still feels like a treat when I use it. IT. SMELLS. AMAZING. Very unisex and not florally or fruity at all. Doesn't leave my skin dry and itchy. It's more expensive than shower gels I've purchased in the past, but a little goes a long way and the quality of product definitely makes it worth it to me.

Nivea In-Shower Body Lotion. This is something that's very new to me. Received it for Christmas from my mom, definitely thought it was a normal body wash until a few weeks ago when I actually took the time to read the bottle. It's basically lotion that you put on in the shower and then rinse off and go. As I've mentioned several times now I have sensitive, dry skin that's particularly bad in the winter. I'm also always in a rush and a little lazy, so this saves me the after shower lotion step. So far, seems pretty great and I'm always a fan of Nivea products when I need some serious hydration.

Treat Yo-self.
