First off I’d start with a shower. My hot water doesn’t last especially long so this is going to be a two step shower. I’ll wash my hair with DermOrganic Argan Hydrating Shampoo* and follow that with DermOrganic Intense Hair Masque*. I love how DermOrganic’s products leave my hair so shiny and silky. The Hair Masque adds in much needed moisture. I’ll then put on my trusty polka-dot shower cap to let it all soak in.
Next is my body and I’d use Argan Magic’s Zesty Orange Body Scrub*. I’m amazed I still have some of this left but I have been savoring it. I love the smell and feel of this since it’s not gritty plus it has Argan Oil in it and my winter skin needs this added moisture.
I wish I still had the Argan Magic Bloomin’ Body Wash but that’s long gone. I’ll use a muslin cloth to get off all of the scrub and then I’ll hop out of the shower to work on my face and let my hot water refresh itself. I’m going to put on my BrokeDown Bath Wrap that was in my February PopSugar Must Have Box.
I’m going to do a facial mask next and the one I’m picking is from Somme Institute* and it’s called Boost. This is one of my favorite masks. It’s a self-warming mask and works wonders in under 10 minutes. It doesn’t harden and make my face tight so it’s great using prior to makeup.
I’d also do an eye mask like the one by Biobliss*. A full review of this is coming up soon so you can see how great this is. I did it last week along with several other things already in this review to prepare to write. My eyes were thanking me for days.
After removal of the Biobliss I’m back in the shower and will finally shave my legs. I’m lucky that I don’t have to shave my legs often but when I do I almost always reach for Shave With Benefits*. This gentle shaving foam protects my legs from cuts and in addition acts as a body wash. It’s gentle enough for face and body as well as shaving. Off comes the shower cap and my hair gets totally rinsed out.
Three steps left that are all moisturizing. First I’m slathering up my body with Aveeno Positively Nourishing Energizing Body Lotion*. My favorite scent in this is Pomegranate+Grapefruit. I was sent my first one as an Aveeno Ambassador but have since bought this as it’s a scent I enjoy and that doesn’t overpower me.
Next I’m using Miracle Foot Repair. I share this with my husband actually since we both have very dry feet and find this to take care of the cracks and discomfort we often feel. For spa time I’m going to definitely put socks on so it will sink in.
For my final act I’ll use Hand Perfection’s Anti-Aging Hand Care System*, specifically the Nourishing Day Cream SPF 15. This is another upcoming review. Not only does this system have the Nourishing Day Cream but it also contains Rejuvenating Night Cream and a Nail and Cuticle Treatment Pen. It’s a wonderful system plus there’s no fragrance to the creams so I love it all the more.
Well for someone who said it would be difficult to write about this, I am my typically wordy self. All of these products, whether sent for a possible review or purchased myself, are keepers and belong in my Spa day and just about any day. Please use the links to read what the other Makeup Wars bloggers have done for their spa day. I’m eager to find out about new products and exactly what I missed.
