Weekend Pampering: The New Year Detox

Sunday, 20 January 2013


I treated myself to some lazy Sunday pampering earlier today, and as I always enjoy reading everyone's elses pampering posts, I thought I'd hop on the old bandwagon and do one myself.  I decided to go with a 'New Year detox' theme as my body has certainly not been my temple since the festive season ended, so it was in dire need of some TLC!

I started with a long hot bath and used a sample of Seagreens The Mineral Bath* which is basically like a giant teabag filled with 100% seaweed.  It's a completely new concept to me as I've only ever used bath oils or bombs before, so I was intrigued to give it a go.  Seaweed has many natural detoxing properties and is meant to do all sorts of things like promote good circulation and rehydrate the skin etc.  I can't really say I noticed much of a difference in those areas from just one bath, but I can say it felt very relaxing to use.  However, I wasn't that keen on the scent of the seaweed so I added a few drops of Geranium and Lavender Essential Oils to my bath to make it more pleasant.

When I got out, I treated my skin to Tisserand's Detox Massage Body Oil which took away any last traces of the seaweed scent and made my skin feel wonderfully soft.  Lastly, I did a quick 10 minute facial with Laidbare's For Richer For Porer Facial Masque* to draw out any impurities whilst also delivering a good exfoliation.  My face and body then said thank you!


Have you treated yourself to some pampering this weekend?

  2. The bath tea bag sounds relly interesting. I've saw a few similar things but never tried them before! Not sure I'd love the seaweed scent either.

    1. It's weird, I wasn't massively keen on it to be honest and would definitely recommend adding some essential oils to your bath if you try it x

  9. The mineral bath product sounds really interesting, and I always love adding essential oils to my bath! I find Epsom salts are a great way to have a bit of a detox too as you absorb magnesium sulfate through the skin which is amazing in relaxing muscles and drawing toxins from the body x
