3 Self-Care/Pampering Products To Try This Month
Need a little January pick me up? These three self-care/pampering products are my top choices for the month and include a luxury hydrating and toning body oil to beat the winter blues, a budget-friendly Ayurveda-inspired face wash, and a brilliant multi-purpose eye mask.

Seaweex My Sunshine Body Oil

I probably use more body oils and body butters during Winter than I do at any other time of the year, and I find that's there's just something so comforting about slathering on a luxury body oil after a bath in the evening. My latest obsession comes from a little-known Polish brand called Seaweex who use hand-harvested, organic seaweed extract as a key ingredient in all of their products. 

Their Sunshine Body Oil is a beautiful, relaxing and uplifting blend of rich essential and plant-based oils that feels very nourishing on dry skin, but without the greasiness or stickiness that some other body oils have. The seaweed extract helps to improve elasticity and firmness too, making it a good one to try if you're doing a detox or getting back into your workout routine this month. 

Ayumi Naturals Turmeric & Bergamot Face Wash

If you follow me on social media, you'll have no doubt seen that I'm currently learning more about Ayurveda, so I was thrilled when I saw that this Ayurvedic inspired skincare range called Ayumi Naturals has recently popped up in my local Tesco! The whole line is cruelty-free, vegan-friendly, and all of the products are free from SLS, parabens, mineral oils and GM ingredients. Best of all though, everything is priced at just £5 which makes it an affordable option to add to your weekly grocery shop.

The Turmeric & Bergamot Face Wash for combination and blemish-prone skin is something that I've been testing out since before Christmas, and I've been enjoying using it as my morning cleanser. It features key actives such as Turmeric, Papaya, and Amla extracts, as well as Vitamin C and Lemon, Bergamot, Eucalyptus, Lemongrass and Mandarin essential oils, to thoroughly cleanse, refresh and brighten the skin. There's also Argan Oil to add some hydration which prevents the cleanser from feeling stripping or drying afterwards. A tiny amount creates a generous lather so I expect that this will last a good few months.

Bedtime Bliss Sleep Mask

Regular readers will know that I've suffered from sleep problems and migraines since I was a teenager, and although I've been able to do a couple of things to make them more manageable over the years, they're still a pain in the butt to deal with (there's nothing like a bad migraine or a sleepless night to throw you off your healthy eating/exercise schedule!)

I've been asked a couple of times about sleep masks in the past so I wanted to include this one from Bedtime Bliss, as it's one of the most comfortable that I've found, without costing an absolute fortune. It has a lightweight and contoured design which allows the mask to be 'moulded' to the eye area, meaning that all light is completely shut out. The fully adjustable strap is elastic and fastened with velcro and I find that it doesn't cause any pressure on my head or on the eyes. Perfect for travelling with, as an everyday sleep mask to use in bed, and as a migraine 'recovery' mask which is what I mainly use it for.

Have you tried any of these?
