Hair & Body Products For At Home Relaxation



As a busy Mum it can be hard to find the time to think and look after ourselves. Times when I know I am not going to be going out I can be found at home with a make up free face and straightened hair. When I go out I straighten my hair, pop on some foundation, eyeliner and mascara and off out I go. 

From time to time I do like to make more of an effort. However  I can't afford to get things done at the salon or have the time. I tend to get my eyebrows threaded when they need doing and a hair cut every 3- 6 months (don't judge me). But the rest of the time I like to do any pampering when I have a free moment at home. 

Overtime I have found some great products that I love using to make me feel more better about myself and so I thought I'd share with you some of them. 


When it comes to shaving small areas of my body such as my underarms I've started using Speed Shave. Speed Shave is a  waterless travel razor that is travel safe for hand luggage and is unisex. Ideal for travelling and staying hair free and well-groomed on the go. The razor contains 10ml Speed Shave natural waterless shave lotion in the handle, that contains enough for 10 shaves (based on face or underarms). It combines a razor, Vegan shave lotion, body moisturiser in one.



I love being able to relax in a bath and I use loads of different brands of bath related products however recently I've loved using the Malki Dead Sea bath salts as they smell amazing. This a delightful aromatherapy treat without needing to go to a spa. Just scoop some bath salts into your running bath water and then lay down and relax enjoying the scent and pure relaxation. 



The hottest hair and beauty trimming tool is ideal for us in between salon visits,to instantly transform your look with accuracy and gentleness without the fear of cuts. The styler is suitable for using on sensitive body parts such as your eyebrows, bikini, underarm and upper lip. All you have to do is pop on the correct attachment for fuss free trimming. 



Discover the ENVY Blowdry kit for a 10 minute professional game changer. The prewash system repairs, strengthens and adds gloss to all hair types. The set contains: 
ENVY Dual fix 12, gentle cleansing shampoo and gentle detangling conditioner. The blowdry kit is ideal for getting that salon look at home. There are 2 ways in which to use the Dual fix 12 the first being to massage into dry hair, blow dry in for a deep treatment before shampooing or applying it between the shampoo and conditioner stage. 



When looking for new skincare products I came across the B. range in superdrug. The range comes in four phases with Phase one being the collection I use which is suitable for your late 20's/early 30's. So far I only have the  moisture gel and night serum. However there is also a day cream and blemish gel. There is also a range which is for all skin types and I have been using the exfoliating cleanser which I love. In that range there are many other products such as make up removers,cleansing wipes, eye cream etc.



I've noticed my skin has been quite dry recently and I've also been getting spots more often. Carol's skin re-balancing serum is designed to restore bacterial balance quickly and gently.
It contains a smart patented natural anti-bacterial ingredient called MicroSilver ™ that only attacks bad skin bacteria, leaving good skin flora to flourish. This helps your skin to re-populate with the good stuff and keep the bad stuff at the castle gates.




7th Heaven, the world’s number one face mask brand that is natural and cruelty free. 7th Heaven offers loads of ultra moisturising and damage repairing products for your face, hands, feet, and hair. They are affordable, plus super environmentally friendly - 7th Heaven even offers many vegan friendly products. These products are fantastic home spa products, AND totally budget-friendly at around £1 a pop for face masks, and £1.99 for hair. I love nothing more than relaxing in the bath and popping on a face mask and I'm also loving their hand and feet range which I've never used before until now.



The scholl nail care system is a great starter kit to electrically file, buff and polish nails to give natural, shiny nails. With 3 easy steps this nail care system is a must for your at home manicure and pedicure routine. Battery operated and designed for easy handling this gadget has two speed settings and will also stop when too much pressure is being applied. 


The scholl foot file is one of the most important steps in your at home pedi routine. 
Get soft beautiful feet after one use with the Scholl Velvet Smooth Express Pedi with Diamond Crystals. The roller head removes hard skin leaving feet feeling silky smooth. You can purchase heads in three different intensities: extra coarse for particularly thick and stubborn hard skin, regular course for excess hard skin and gentle for providing a perfect finish.Comes with a safety feature that locks the roller in place if too much pressure is applied, preventing any injuries.
