A pick-me-up pamper 

I’ve been feeling so ill recently with migraine after migraine, and the only things making me feel better right now is my obsession with Doctor Foster, and a “I feel sorry for myself” pamper session.

Is anyone else completely obsessed with Doctor Foster too? Gemma is a total badass, and Simon is, well, SIMON. I think I watched the first series in a day or two, and now the week’s wait in between episodes is killing me.

So while I’ve been binging Doctor Foster, here’s a few products that have been making me feel a little bit better.

A company called Ooh-arr offered to send me a couple of face masks to try out, and they arrived just when I needed a good pamper. Firstly, how cute is it that one is called Rosie Glow*. These smell so good, especially Juicy Burst*, which smells like straight up oranges. Ooh-arr says that their masks are packed full of natural products and essential oils, and they’re super affordable too! These get a big thumbs up from me, and I’ll definitely be using them again in the future.

I recently reviewed Zoella’s Jelly and Gelato range (read the post here), where I hadn’t purchased the Gelat’eau Body Mist. After completely loving the rest of the range, I just had to buy it. I love this scent in the evenings when I’m winding down for the day, and it layers really nicely on top of the other products from the range.

Similarly, this Malée Nourishing Hand Cream* has the most fresh but relaxing scent. I’ve only recently started using hand creams. I didn’t ever see the point in them, but now that I’m typing all day at work, I feel like my skin really appreciates me using one. This Malée hand cream feels quite thick and luxurious, so not something that I would use when I’m trying to get things done, but is perfect for a relaxing night in when you need a pamper!

This Leighton Denny nail polish in the shade Rural Sunset* may not be the most Autumnal colour, but it’s the perfect shade for me when I just want to look polished (haha, nail polish makes me look polished, get it?). I used it with the Leighton Denny Rock Solid reinforcement treatment* and they’re a match made in heaven. No chipping for a good 4 days, and my nails look lovely and glossy.

What are your favourite pick-me-up products?
